Not Quiet

My plan to get all caught up on homework today was a silly silly silly one.

The contractors arrived at 8:30 am and began replacing my windows.

I’ve been moving from room to room, trying to stay out of their way, trying to get stuff done.

The windows, they are gorgeous. All are replaced, and now the “finishing them out” part of the process, where the caulking and trim and finishing bits happen. The windows are gorgeous. I wish I had new curtains. I hate the ones in my living room. Blergh. I want something different. I need new ones for the guest room, too. See what happens? I get one thing done and it makes me want more more more.

I got an estimate to paint the outside.

It’s more than I thought.

I’m going to have to see about insurance and finances. I’ve got to get an invoice to them, get the rest of my funds and see where I am.

Hopefully these guys will be finished up soon. Then I can put my house back together, run my errands, come home to a newly sealed structure and get all my reading done.

Right now, I’ve pretty much given up on anything other than cruising the internet and doing some preliminary research for a group project.

  1. I know. The old part. But seriously…it already feels different in this house. I’m getting antsy, ready for them to finish up and leave so I can put everything back together and enjoy! I’m writing out the check now, and even though it is a steal…it’s making me gag a bit.

  2. Don’t feel old. Just enjoy windows that are easy to clean and open and nice to look at. If you weren’t such an amazing person, I would’ve jealous. Instead I am just happy. Remind me to ask if you still love these next fall when we hope to replace ours.
