Excuse Me, but I Think I Deserve a Promotion

This is our current kitchen floor. It is primed. We are not supposed to walk on the "white parts." My request to install a wire and harness, so we can hoist ourselves throughout the house without stepping on the "white parts" has been denied. I need a promotion if I'm going to get this project request through.

Except I don't want to know what the next "level" is - after girlfriend, you get "promoted" to fiancee. After fiancee, you get "promoted" to wife. But what's next after wife? It's kind of a dead-end gig, if you ask me.

I'm not that bitter, but I sure would like this &^%$#@ project to be over! (Oh, and just so you don't feel too much pity, the new floor is SUPPOSED to be installed tomorrow. But we'll see.)

I do this kind of thing, so I'll let you in on a little trade secret. There is time that the rest of the world goes by and then there is remodel/building time in which you add three months and $10,000 and a bottle of Aleve for good measure. Or Dewars. Either one.

How about both together? Or is that dangerous?

Tuesday my Dish Network was installed. While waiting on the installer, I decided to fix some sewer pipe leaks I found in the basement. I was successful. unfortunately I found out Wed morning that the reason the pipes were leaking was because the sewer was blocked. Spent $150 having the Roto Rooter man come from 45 miles away to snake the sewer. not quite as dramatic as having to hover around the house like you but I felt you would feel my pain if I were to vent this tale to you.
