So today was the day where I was supposed to hang around and enjoy the dearth of workmen in my house as well as the lack of construction noises they weren't making.
Except that I was on the road by 9:00 to get to a 10:00 board meeting downtown, followed by a 12:00 rehearsal, another hour to get home again, a trip to my son's cello lesson, the dropping off of my daughter at dancing class, the picking up my son at dancing class and taking him to choir, and ending with the final pick up at 9:15. Which is 12 hours in my car, and thank God my latest audiobook is entertaining.
And when I had a moment where I wasn't driving around? The phone rings and it's Angie's List, wanting me to review the contractors I've been using:
"Yes, we had our roof worked on. Powerwashing, brightening, and moss prevention. They were very good."
"Yes, we had a new driveway installed. They were very prompt, professional, and competitively priced. Yes I would recommend them."
"Yes, we had a deck installed. Well, I don't actually have anything to say about that because they just finished it yesterday and I haven't really been out on it because it's been RAINING, OK?"
Christ, it's like the wedding's over, things have quieted down, and now I have to write thank you letters to my contractors.
Also? I hate Wednesdays.
