I am reminded of what it is like to have subcontractors working in and around my house.
No lollygagging around in the morning when you have a crew painting your house.
That means no wearing PJ’s till noon, get dressed, face on (makeup), dog fed, and back in the house, vehicle out of the carport so they can paint it, but wait, the *!)#@*** the gate won’t open!
Coleen, take a deep breath, quit hyperventilating! Call DK (my husband) he will know what to do! It’s Monday morning, so I text my husband, he got back with me shortly. We have a gate that opens on a remote control and there is no pushing it open by hand. We worked through that and got the gate opened. I got my car out of the carport and the painters were able to paint the carport that day.
OK, I get into the office, NO WIFI, now what else can go wrong this am. I called the company and they said everything looks ok on their end and suggested that we turn the router off and see if it comes back on. Well, our router is in the attic and I have to get a ladder out and crawl up there. NOT THIS MORNING, I decided to wait for my husband to get home. I learned what I could do in the office that did not require WIFI! There was a project that had been on my TO DO LIST for way too long. I got it done!
About 2 hours later, right before my husband got home, the WIFI was working. The company that installed our gate stopped by on their way home and checked out our gate and you guessed it! It was working fine. I don’t know if any aliens had visited us earlier or not, Welcome to living out in the country.
This is Monday morning, they have been here for 7 days so far. I think it will be another 2-3 days before they are finished.
I am reminded that I can still get things done when my schedule is interrupted. Communication with my husband and paint contractor and their supervisor has made for a positive paint experience.
The end results are going to be very nice and we are already enjoying the new look before they are finished with our project!
