Oh a tangled web they weave when the plumber doesn’t show up

So I get home today and sign on to my work laptop, and while I’m doing that, I call the plumber to let him know that I’m ready. The boys and I were up late here painting last night to make sure we were good to go with the plumbing being finished today. He said he would be back to put the sink, toilet and shower head in on Thursday morning.

When I called in to their office today, the answer I got was not what I was expecting or desiring. Apparently they’ve had a few people call in sick and are short-handed, so they’ve had to push finishing my bathroom back until Friday.  Argh. You just never fully appreciate a bathroom until you are stuck in a house all day without one!

Seriously, though. With the building boom that is taking place in Minot and the surrounding area now, I should thank my lucky stars that I didn’t get pushed back until next week. So, it’s not as bad as it could be. Still…I’m bummed. I’ve got my bath salts ready for a nice hot soak. It appears that I’m pouting because it will have to wait. I guess I need to put on my big girl panties and suck it up for another day.

The good news is that the drywall guy came today, after not showing up at noon yesterday, and fixed the dings in the wall that happened when the flooring guy was here, and one I put in by accident yesterday -oops!  He’s supposed to be coming back after 12:30 to do a final sanding, so we’ll see if he makes it.

So, since I’m going back to the office tomorrow, Older Son will come and be here to let them in. Thank goodness for Older Son…I know I can count on him to hold the fort down.
