I feel like I am spending all my time with construction workers. I know that sounds like a fantasy, but after a while you get tired of it. And they all seem to want to do things their own way. (Just like a man.) I ask for the same things of three or four different companies so I can compare them later but no two are alike when they send me the bids.
One of our latest wanted to install 10 bright fluorescent light fixtures. That would be great if we were lighting a basketball court, but I prefer soft lighting. I want lighting that makes me look 10 years younger, if possible. (Not sure how much that would cost.)
But don't worry, I will spend as much time as it takes with dozens of construction workers. And I'll have a big bottle of aspirin, too.
