Frustrating to say the least!

Hubby cut his thumb at work a week and a half ago. He has stitches and due to this injury hasn’t been able to finish the trim work that we need to get done. So last week I hired someone to come on Friday to finish it up. He was here all day and didn’t quite finish the job. When hubby came home and saw the work he was very disappointed. On Saturday when he started working on a few projects and inspected the work further he became unglued. The work was sloppy to say the least. Some of it needed to be completely redone.

Why is it so hard to find good skilled workers? This is not the first time this has happened to us. In fact I don’t know that we have ever hired someone and have been satisfied with their work. We have had the most frustrating experiences ever. And guess what, these people show up late and do a crappy job and they still get paid. Then hubby has to fix the job they did.

Frustrating I tell ya!

Rant

My daughter is involved in a city choir and each year they go on a spring trip.  This year, I am in charge of planning that trip. I have never been on one and I have certainly never planned one.  The choir conductor actually did the planning of the itinerary. It’s a three day weekend which starts early Friday morning.  Today we go to Costco to get all the food for the trip.  Breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks for 25 people. We are staying in a gym at an elementary school. There is a stove somewhere in a classroom. Conductor wants hot breakfast and dinners.  We have no sink, no cooking utensils or supplies.  We have to bring that, not the sink.  Need I remind you that I have half my kitchen packed and at the other house.  As it is I have to go dig through boxes to find luggage and sleeping bags.  I think I am supposed to prepare all the food, yet he hasn’t asked me to do it.  But who else is there to do it?  He will be driving a truck down with the instruments he is taking with us. That means me and 17 girls and chaperones on the bus. I’m in charge.  The problem is that the conductor tells me nothing.  It’s kind of like he assumes I know, or that he will tell me when I need to know.  Oh, and we list our house Thursday evening. So, the house has to be cleaned thoroughly before I leave.  Oh, and I am planning the scrapbook craft, and the goody bags for the girls.  This is not my idea of a vacation.  Please pray for my attitude.  It stinks right now.  Well, off to Costco soon to meet the conductor and get all our food and to see how much will fit in the ONE large ice chest that he is bring for the trip.  HA!
