Nothing Special

Hey, guys. Its the last week of school. Just one last push till the end, and then we can stay in our pajamas and watch decorating shows. Our house is still not under construction, and I don't know when it will be, so in the meantime? Decorating shows.

I wont go too far into it, but we met with our contractor and talked some scary numbers. Rob is taking his typical approach, which is to dance blithely forward and not worry that we will go absolutely broke, while I worry enough for the both of us. Rob actually thinks that, since the numbers we have are only an estimate, we could come in lower and have money left over. His optimism is adorable and stupid. Everyone knows that all construction projects go long and over budget, and lately I've learned that many people wind up having to get a new car in the middle of their project, too. I'm screwed, but I can't go back. I mean, I can go back, but now that I've glimpsed the possibilities, I really don't want to. I will have that dining room, and I will have that new kitchen, and so what if we can't have a floor or door knobs because we run out of money?

We also have to get our fence fixed and take our car in for service. Why don't I just crack open all the bank accounts and make it a free-for-all? Here! Take all my money!!

Also, we haven't seen the sun in weeks. Normally, I love rainy weather. I still don't mind it that much, but its June so I'm wearing flip flops, because that's what you do when its June, and my feet keep getting wet, and I keep squishing around in my shoes.

I got nothin'. Sorry to have wasted your time.
