THE FLOORS ARE FINISHED THE INSTALLERS PAID AND GONE. Now I need to go to the casino to try my luck at winning a little change. The only thing about that is it's not guaranteed I win. On the other hand it will be a short change of scenery away from the house that has been stacked up with furniture to get the flooring down and new carpets installed in the bedrooms.
Now there is a need for a cleaning lady or perhaps a team to clean the whole house top to bottom. The installers don't clean up behind themselves like I think they should. I even had to clean the yard where they had the trailer parked to haul off the unwanted stuff they removed from the house. When the rain came for two days they had to move the saw into the garage. A piece of the old carped was placed there but still saw dust is every where on everything in the garage.
My yard man says he will come on Saturday and get it blown out and cleaned up. If you brush up against anything your clothes are full of saw dust. They had lots more stuff to dump from their trailer so my wife gave them an extra 20 dollars to help pay the dumping fees. We had thrown out a lot of stuff we didn't want anymore. Now the rooms look a lot bigger. I think her birds with the huge cage will be the next to go if we can find a family that wants birds like she did years ago.
Some of you may know about the day beds with the white metal frames that breaks easily and all you have left is the box springs and the mattress. Well she decided to toss it all out and many throw rugs and floor runners as well. Now we are having to look for those plastic desk chair floor guards for the wooden floors. The ones we had were for rugs on the floors with the little tips on the underside to hold to the carpets.
Now her computer desk fits beside her grand daughter's computer desk so she can keep an eye on what she does on the computer. She will be 9 years old next month going on 13 years old for what she knows and will say at sometimes. The good part is she got promoted to the sixth grade so with her height that should be OK where kids shouldn't pick on her as they will be bigger and maybe taller too. She is skinny like her mom my wife's daughter.
With all that said it's high time to be in a casino for a day or two since she doesn't work this weekend. The installers gave her a break for tearing up something they discussed so that saved us money from the original quote. I think it occurred when they were stacking things in one of the rooms out of their way for a bit and it broke beyond their repair ability.
So we are probably off to the races (the casino) for a day or so to unwind and as I said win a few pennies. If not I'll be OK to come back home with the money I left with in my pocket. She hasn't been grocery shopping in a couple weeks to cut down on things being all around in the kitchen spaces.
I'm glad this house job is completed what a relief. Now we can breathe fresh air again but the cleaning is still very much needed the soonest. Maybe we'll try Molly Maids Services to start if their prices are reasonable of course.
