DONE!!!

The landscaping is finito!!

And if i do say so myself (and i do!), it looks absolutely splendid! Better even than i imagined. I just love it!

Jiminy Cricket is happily perched on the step, and my concrete mushroom is nestled beside the garage. Now to replace the welcome mat (i saw one i loved at Linens 'n Things...AND i have a coupon...just hope they still have them. When i wanted to buy it, H said no) Think it's time to retire the ugly old red stool (it clashes with the brick)....and order my DRAGON! (and the gargoyle bench)

We're still waiting for the roofer to return....he started replacing the security light they broke, then went out to buy a bulb....an HOUR ago...and has not yet returned.

We paid the landscaper (minus the cost of the lamppost, at his suggestion). But the roofer's bill is being charged...that way, if there are any problems, we can refute the bill. I think the actual roofing was done well (not that i'm going up there to check), but they were sloppy, inefficient, not the most dependable.

I can't believe the landscaping only took 4 days. He'd estimated 5-6 days. The roofers told us 2-3...and it's been a week. Sheesh.

Told the landscaper if he wants to use us a reference for other customers, to please feel free. He was a great guy to work with. Personable, dependable, available. His workers really worked, too. I'm really pleased as punch with the entire landscaping experience. If i ever decide to have any other landscaping done (god forbid!), he'll be the first one i call.

I wish the roofer would get back and finish fixing the damn light...then we could go to the gym, and maybe i could convince H to go to Linens 'n Things, too. Or not.

Looks like we're going to be hit with a pretty bad thunderstorm, too. Got the wash in, but of course, it's not dry, so i have to go hang it up downstairs, and bring up the clothes from the dryer.

Cleaned the kitchen and bathroom today. Managed to break the damn toilet tank flap, trying to fix it...ripped right through the rubber. I tried to poke the paperclip through the rubber in a different spot, to hold the chain on....don't know how successful i was.

Fuck it.

If it annoys H while i'm gone, let him call someone to replace the flap. I'm not a goddamn plumber, and i'm sick and tired of being the only one who can DO anything practical around here.

Oh well. Laundry beckons. Then lunch. Then hopefully, the gym. And Linens 'n Things. Ooops...i hear thunder....time to go!
