Crazy Day!

There is a lot going on!

I had to mail the check from the insurance to the mortgage, run to the bank, chiro appointment, customer picking up that I forgot to trim threads and lint roll (got it done in time though), start the beans for Red Beans and Rice today, running daughter to sign language class, meeting another customer, sewing patches, laying out a 80 piece quilt, breathing, remembering to breath, texting with Real Estate Agent, teaching math, oh, yeah - lunch - maybe?

Tomorrow should not be quite as hectic.  Lots to do, but I will be home the whole day not in and out like today.

Interesting news:

There was a contractor at the company we are/were going to go with to build our home, but he left to start his own business.  He was their best contractor.  Hmmmm - food for thought.  Since he is an independent with fabulous references, I think this might be a good mix for me, in particular.  I considered acting as contractor myself, but with everything on my plate, I felt like something would be missed.  However, with this person, I may get to pick what flooring, stone, etc goes in the house rather than picking from a showroom.  The main company is a custom place, but they give you choices from their preferred vendors. 

I already know what flooring I want and where to get it; I know what stone to us and where to get it.

I can get lighting, cabinets, paint, etc, etc.

The cart is before the horse though.  I need to slow down.  I have not even talked to the man yet OR the building firm.

Oh, that is the other thing. The main firm kind of made me feel uncomfortable because they say I must have the survey and $2,500 before we even start.  I just want to talk about the process, see if we jive, etc.  I am a little leery of people who want money before even meeting me.

Anyway, we are going to try to set an appointment with the guy to see what he says.  This may mean we need to hire an architect to design and draw our plans.

So many interesting things!


  1. Sounds like things are really moving quickly with your plans - you're not messing around, are you?! :)

    1. Not at all! I am moving and groovin!
