some one once told me not to sweat the small stuff.

no wood floors.

and there won't be any, either.

the landlord fired two contractors
inside of a week.
and now he is losing money
by staying in town so long.
(he lives in LA and is leaving soon)
thus, no wood floors.
wednesday we get carpet.
(i am so glad the first contractor
ripped out all of the downstairs carpet
before he was fired!!
otherwise who knows what we'd be stuck with!!)

while i am perturbed he has inconvenienced us
for so long, and with practically nothing to show for it,
i am aware that things could be worse.

i will finally get my house back.
be rid of the damned landlord
and possibly be able
figure out a routine.

surprise surprise,
i still haven't figured out
how to fit in a 40 hr week
and *still* be a proper
mother, wife, friend.
its been almost two months.
how long does it take?

but it's all small stuff, right?

well, let's hope it'll be really pretty carpet and you'll be happy.

yeah fitting everything in and working a 40 hour week just doesn't seem to cut it with everything else goin' on.
