Still no tile, and no info, either. Expenses start up again in a big way tomorrow. Shares needed.

Those up there are the light fixtures in the downstairs bath. In other words, one of the few visible things that got done the other day.

Still no tile. No delivery, after three days of waiting, and no word, and no response from Home Depot, either (excluding the person who sold it to us, who has knocked herself out on our behalf but who has her much deserved "weekend" on Sundays and Mondays). It is not remotely possible that they cannot track the truck, but then again, it should not be remotely possible that their Web site has no e-mail or online means of contact, but here we are. Yes, we are going to have words tomorrow. If things go well, my earrings will stay in my ears. If not . . . .

And it alls tarts up again tomorrow. Except, in all likelihood, the septic repairs, natch. Too much rain in the forecast. Even so, they need to get this clusterfuck fixed, too. The constant problems and screw-ups and foot-dragging delays that led to this weekend's cancellation have left me without mercy any longer. 

In the meantime, we've just bade farewell to one of our dearest friends, who was here this week for specific purposes that never materialized, thanks to said screw-ups and delays. We are planning to have her here again soon, and the people to whom we are paying ungodly amounts of money are now going to have to make that happen, and on our time frame, because we are done being jacked around.
Expenses begin to mount anew tomorrow, too. Lots of labor costs upcoming, and plenty of materials costs that require cash outlays, too. We need to make some sales, and badly. We will also need to buy a lot of materials from Home depot and/or Lowe's, and soon, to finish this off, so here are the links:
  • Wings's site, for sales;
  • Lowe's cards via our Amazon wishlist;
  • Lowe's cards via the company site; and
  • Home Depot cards via the company site. The e-version using my e-mail address is great; I take the tablet to the store with me, and they scan it off the screen.
This week is going to be absurdly busy for reasons entirely different from last week, but the pace will be about the same. Which is to say, punishing. I have more work to do tonight, and I will have to be up and running early tomorrow. Many thanks and much love to everyone who has gotten us this far; we just need a little more help, a final long hard push, to finish this off.
