I Want To Burn My House Down

Dear Diary

 
I think I may have mentioned once or a million times that I'm currently suffering from home construction. It's been going on WAYYY too long, should have been finished two weeks ago, and has left my house in a worse state than it was in to begin with. I didn't really even need too much stuff done, just fix up the general wear and tear of living in a house and owning a dog for 8 years. I also had a mantel installed over my fireplace and had my kitchen cabinets stripped. Unfortunately for me, so many things went wrong and so many mistakes were made, it's become a joke. I had to call the builder over to my house last night to talk, as I had just had it up to here... All I'd been hearing had been dumb excuses and lame reasons why stuff was messed up so I had to have a come to Jesus talk. Firstly, this guy puts back the meeting hour after hour until at 740pm, an hour and 40 minutes after the last time he had promised to be there, he texts me to tell me he can't make it as it got late and he had a movie to go to. I almost lost it. I think I may have threatened him, so he came over. And let me tell you, if I had kids, I would be great at telling them off and guilting them into feeling bad :)
