That goes for the weather and my mood today…I decided to work from home as it was Poppy’s last day at school and I needed to get some chores done while I still had time on my own. It worked out well – I managed a run and completed most of my work by lunch – I’m always much more productive at home. So I rewarded myself and nipped off to the pool for a bit. I was actually hoping I would be there most of the afternoon as Poppy was off to a friend’s pool party to celebrate the end of the school year. How cool is that to be able to go to a pool party? It’s times like these that I really appreciate being in Atlanta – I just used to hang out on the swings on the rec. Her friend had even called MM’s cell phone to talk to Poppy and invite her personally. She was over the moon at receiving her first phone call – I could see my 6 yr old transforming into a 13 yr old before my eyes – terrifying. Anyway the pool for me didn’t last as the storms rolled in and I headed off to complete my chores.
While I was out I received an email from our contractor. We’re due to start the renovations in the next couple of weeks and I’ve been SO excited about the planning and design stage and I’m just ready to get going with the dirty work now. That was until today when we were told we’re over budget with our list of items we want to install. I’m livid – he knew our budget before we started so why take us to the most expensive stores for fixtures and fittings? – I feel so deflated and of course don’t want to compromise on anything we’ve picked out. MM feels the same way – so I hope Mr. Contractor has a good solution tomorrow that doesn’t involve us having to pay more or compromise too much on our choices. Mad as hell…yes I am – plus I wasn’t going to drink this week but now find myself with a glass of red next to me to calm my mood.
