In Disarray & the HCRA
Okay, I realize that it is February and I'm just now posting after about a month, but I have GOOD reasons. REALLY GOOD REASONS. First, there is NO blogging at work. That is where I posted from 90% of the time before the job switch. Also, things are in serious disarray at the Casa de Nappy. We have been removing more flooring and buying new furniture, but it's all for nothing until the new flooring goes in. Of course, our new flooring is out of stock everywhere, so we wait. And wait. And wait. It's getting really hard to live like this.

Here's the entryway where I pulled up ceramic tile AND a layer of vinyl tile AND a layer of adhesive:We also pulled up the carpet AND a layer of vinyl tile AND adhesive in the office:


Yes, that is a big dirty spot where the dog likes to sleep or look out the window. Shut it. So where is all the furniture you ask? Well, it's here (notice the cat STARING at you from the green chair):

And here:



It's driving me bonkers. We're living like heathen. Ick. Oh well, I guess we should be thankful we have a roof over our heads. I just keep telling myself it will be all better soon. And it'll be beautiful and worth every minute of the piggyness. Yeah. I guess I can believe that.

Of course, when the meth lab next door blows up, I guess it will all be for nothing. Yes, my shitty neighbors are still at it. I called the cops on them 3 times in 3 weeks for partying on week nights. In their backyard. With a bonfire. Until AFTER 8 AM. Yes, they were still going when I left for work. Rat bastards.

So here's my shameless plug. I'm doing my 3rd Hill Country Ride for AIDS in April. I did my first ride on Sunday, and DAMN it was cold, but we did it. If you would like to help me meet my fundraising goal, just click here to get to my personal page. I really appreciate everyone who helped me out last year.

Your neighbors are vampires.

Glad to know you are still out there!!!!! I so understand the living in disarray. Can't take it either. Will drive you nuts!

Oh good to hear from you Miss Nappy! It will all be worth it!

Good luck with the bike ride!

Blogger Kelly said...

Oh wow! What a pleasant surprise! Count me in on the sponsor thing... I may need to wait until payday, but count me in!

Good luck with the bike ride and the renovations! I can sympathize. We had flooring issues last year.

I bet it will be gorgeous when it's all done.

I'll have to check out your sponsorship page later. They're blocking weird things here.

Living like this is part of the penance of construction/remodeling/home improvements. I know all about it and I feel your pain.

Blogger Lisa said...

It will be SO worth it when its finished. And that's very cool you're doing the bike ride again... Will donate soon.

I know that house stuff is driving you crazy! Hang in there. And those neighbors have got to go.

Blogger Carrie said...

Oh damn. After reading all that, I don't feel nearly as put out as I did last night with my renovations. :P

Tsk..tsk..miss can't blog from work - I bet you would have alerted me to the fact that carpet has wood stripping nailed to the floor. :P

I could send you a stinky kitten if it would make you feel better. :)
