Can anything be easy?

Today was a perfect example of most days — things scheduled on top of things scheduled on top of things.   One of these items was for roof inspection.  Of course, they gave me a window of 1 pm to 5 pm.  I had a conference call for work at 2:30 pm and jokingly said they’d arrive at the same time.  Well, I was wrong, they actually showed up around halfway through my call.  Luckily, I did not have to engage the inspectors –just having to point out the entrances to the attic.  As the call was wrapping up, they told me the awesome news that our roof failed inspection.  The foam material surrounding the vents is combustible.  Also, not inspection related, they said our dryer vent is overflowing and that is the number one case of fires.

More has been added to the plate and nothing from the plate has been removed.  I guess it is nice to get things sorted out correctly.  However, couldn’t that have been done the first time around?

As I read through this, all I hear is whine, whine, whine.  At least that is consistent with my current mood!  Hoping the next blog will be more full of glee.

One thought on “Can anything be easy?

  1. Leah, You made me laugh. Have you seen Beauty and the Beast, when the butler says to the glasses, “Don’t whine glasses”! And of course the glasses that were whining were WINE glasses! We have to laugh at ourselves because the alternative is not acceptable! I know you’re an expert at juggling things but I have a suggestion for you. You may already be doing this, but here goes: Other than your schedule, make lists of those things that need to be done, i.e. House repairs, shopping, bill paying/filing/ and every other category of your life. Do not try to fix everything at once. Just arrange those lists in order of priority and take just one thing off the pile a day or a week, or even a month. Just one thing. I had a boss once that if he saw a junior executive with papers all over his desk, with no sense of order, he would go to that desk and throw everything in the garbage. His philosophy was that whatever was really important would rear its ugly head in another way. The rest just wasn’t important! It worked for him. Of course all the other junior executives were sure to keep their desks clean. LOL
