The cabinets for my master bath renovation came in. They were only what I ordered in that they were, indeed, cabinets. My usually-reliable Honda Odyssey got sick and had to go the shop, where they could not fix it. It has to go to the dealer. My contractor had questions about phase 2 of the renovation which required me to drop everything so I could pick out appliances. I have discovered that some people make this into a year-long project, but I only have a couple of weeks. Comcast showed up to install our new high-speed internet but could not because the street is too far from the house. They require a survey to get that done and it is still not complete. And I haven't posted in a couple of days, even though I really, really want to blog more in 2013.
My contractor and I agreed immediately that the cabinets were not what we ordered, and he is having a new cabinet maker make them, from scratch, for the same price. He is dealing with the other sub, leaving me completely out of it. My Honda's problem is a known issue, so it should be covered by the warranty. I thought long and hard about my kitchen re-do, which I kept putting off, and now my vision is in place for this project, and I am super excited about it! Comcast has called me or shown up every time they said they would.
And I am here now.
It's all in how you look at it.
