A WTF day.

So the chimney guys were here (LATE) and wanted to charge me to trim back some branches. Nope. Just do the chimney, get it done right and go away. I was up early, so wasn’t happy at the delay. Basically sat around most of the day twiddling my thumbs waiting for them to show. They are not getting any gold stars in my review.

They still aren’t done and have to return tomorrow all this extra work because the idiot husband put it off so long is going to cost me an added $551.00, so much for the guns covering the bill. They found two (correction-3!) almost complete blockages and had to breech the outside wall 5 times to clear it and place the liner. (I’d only paid for 1 breech of the outside wall.)

I am so over this house. Hell, I’ve been over this house for 46 years.

Looks as though I may need to do at least 3 yard sales as soon as the weather gets warm enough. So much stuff to unload already and I’ve barely scratched the surface.

I’ve decided to part ways with 98% of my Halloween props, keeping only 2 to move with me.

I’ve decided that the only way my large garden gargoyle will stay here is if I get a fantastic offer on him. He’s not a Halloween prop he’s a garden statue. I will move him. I do have other garden statuary I will sell off.

At least Lucy had a good afternoon and evening when the chimney guy’s wife showed up with their daughter with dinner for him and his helper . Lucy enjoyed both his wife and daughter’s visit–we went inside and she made herself a lifelong friend.

Cute kid. They ended up staying and visiting with me until he was done for the evening. He’ll be back to finish tomorrow–then I write him a check for the overage.
