Wednesday Whining

Why does it take more than a week to pick up a full dumpster and bring it back empty? We are going on a week and half now and no dumpster. Hello? Anybody out there? We have a huge pile of junk just waiting for a receptacle.

And speaking of waiting, why oh why did I bust my ass painting just so I could sit around looking at a virtually done house? If it weren't for that damn bathroom, we could move in.

Couch. Check.
Kitchen table. Check.
Bed. Check.
Working fridge. Check.
Almost clean oven. Check.
Toilet. Check.
Bathtub drain. Uh no. Crap.

We make do without a vanity in the bathroom, but we can't live without a shower.

(Anti-whine: The forecasted highs are in the 50s. That's the kind of January I can almost deal with.)

Oooh, I'm impressed with the update, I hadn't heard how much furniture you'd gotten in already. That makes the shower drain situation even more irksome, though. It was weeks ago when I was there pulling up the rug, and the tub itself was installed then. How complicated could the freaking drain be? You must be seething.

Seething. Check.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, good to know someone somewhere is reading it at some point. Oh, and shower drains are seriously overated. Ours hasn't worked in years and there is a beautiful community living in our bathtub now.

Hee hee. Hi Nicole, thanks for commenting. I love the image of a little tiny village living in your drain. You should see the black mold at my current place of residence.

The new house is just sporting a hole straight through to the floor below. Which makes using the toilet intersting when someone is working in the lower level...

I was wondering how things were coming. Thanks for the update. You must be really frustrated. YIKES!
