I have nothing exciting to post...just want to let everyone know that this house crap is getting worse before it gets better, but isn't that how it always goes? The finishers can't come to our house until we have water and electricity ( i know i'm probably repeating myself)...anywho, the electricity was going to be turned on for sure yesterday or today...well, they need to put a guidewire on a pole in the man across the road's field. Well, they have to get his permission to do that (understandably) but the problem is that no one can get ahold of him. Second...the guy installing our water line and septic tank said that he would be there last Friday or Saturday. Never showed up. When I called on Saturday to see what the deal was, he said he had been busy doing something in Morrilton and that Monday he would be in West Helena and would be here on either Tuesday or Wednesday. I go ahead and call this morning with the excuse of asking how much it would be for him to add a faucet in the front and back of the house (for water hoses) and asked if he was still planning on being there tomorrow. "Well, no...I'm really busy and just don't know...um...hmmm..." and then I say, "Well, we are only waiting on you. We can't do anything else until we have the water at least." He says, "Well, hmmm....umm..." I say, "We were trying to get in there by Thanksgiving, but outlook is not looking good, huh?" He then says, "Well, I'll try to be there tomorrow with the faucets." WHAT? I call my hubby and tell him that if he hee haws me around this time, he is fired. I don't care what the hubby thinks, there are others to do the jobs and would have probably already started anyway. I'm planning on paying this dude $3900 for all of this and he can't make the time for me? Hello! I understand the guy has other jobs, but don't tell me you are going to be there and keep putting me off. Comments? Am I overreacting or justifiably acting so ill my face is red with the whole high blood pressure thing? haha
oh and check this out Bachelor/Bachelorette fans:
Chris Harrison opened up Monday about the recent split of the latest "Bachelorette" DeAnna Pappas and her former fiancé, Jesse Csincsak.
The host of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" told 104.3 MY fm's Valentine in the Morning: "DeAnna went to Breckenridge last week and broke up with Jesse. He was stunned. I've talked to Jesse several times today, and he did not see it coming."
Harrison claims that Pappas leaked the break-up to the press early: "They also agreed that this was not gonna get out to the public until Thursday, they were going to release a joint statement and try and keep this above board, and she went out on her own, leaked it, and so he's just feeling a little beat up right now."
"He really truly loved DeAnna," Harrison says. "He was so happy and he's like, 'Let's just go, let's go to Breckenridge, let's go to Atlanta, let's get the heck out of here, and let's live our lives. Let's just get to know each other and hang out.'"
But Harrison says that Pappas has big Hollywood dreams. He says Pappas has been getting "bad advice" from people like "paparazzi guys, and other people that she's been running into that have filled her head with, you know, these dreams that she's going to come to Hollywood and make it big and do all this stuff. And I think her head's getting a little bigger than it should and I think that's led to this as well."

If that guy doesn't show up this time, FIRE HIM! That is unacceptable! And OMG... Deanna... I had no idea... Now I'm glad that she didn't pick Jason.. But I still feel bad for Jesse.. oh no!! :(

I didn't see this coming!

Yeah, I would be really frustrated too. Do you want Clay's cousin's number?? He's a good plumber...and he is reliable. (Now, I hope this isn't the one you are mad at! haha...if that is the case, then I don't know him. LOL) I don't know for sure, but I think he is pretty reasonable.

Fire him. Period. That's unacceptable. Your project isn't any less important than anything else he has going on.

And, Deanna. Not surprised. Jesse is way too good for her, anyway. I liked Jason better, but she would've done the same thing to him. She's way too wishy-washy.

Yes, he does do Septic tanks too!
