The other day at ten minutes to 11 I heard a tentative male voice say, “Heather, are you naked?” Several things could have shocked me about that experience.
But the thing that really got to me was
Yes, my contractors who think that a normal work day can start as late as 6-9 PM were at my house at ten minutes to 11 in the MORNING!
I worked through the shock and responded, “Normally when my husband is out of town I do sit around naked just in case a strange man wants to come over but since I would never have expected you guys this early I am still dressed.” Contractor #2 worked that out in his head and finally figured out it was safe to come in.
When contractor #1 walked in I observed, “I thought that if you guys went outside before noon you’d explode in the cloud of dust just like a vampire.” Then I spent some time wondering if I’ve watched WAY too much Buffy, the Vampire Slayer.
I think that in the last two days they have accomplished more than they have accomplished over the period of a week or two before. It’s amazing what can happen if you actually spend time working on a project.
Just as a sign of how involved this project is my husband let me know that a person from Lowe’s is coming over today to see. I think we’re keeping the store in business and they are coming over to pay homage.
