All Cleaned Up

Taking advantage of a Friday afternoon free of meetings, I took the afternoon off to meet a couple of people at house to see if we can't knock some of our home improvement stuff off the list. 

I mentioned the other day that we need to redo our master bath among other things.  The biggest problem I have, I don't know what I want.  I generally have a vision in my head and all I have to do is figure out how to afford that vision.  This time - the head is blank.  trying to get ideas, I've scoured the internet for ideas for "small" baths.  I guess my idea of a small bathroom differs from what you find on the internet because these bathrooms are huge in comparison.  I also don't have $30 grand to spend on a room that I spend little time in.   

We have even gone to the local home improvement stores looking for ideas and nothing is clicking for me.  When we stopped by a booth at a local home show last weekend and I told the kid manning the boot that I didn't know what I wanted, he countered with "we can work up a 3-D model for you so you can get some ideas. Sounded like a great idea to me so we signed up for an in-home visit.

We set our appointment for Thursday.  On Wednesday afternoon they call to confirm the appointment, we are set.  Wednesday night, they call to say that they overbooked and could we move it to Friday.  We negotiate a time when both Mr. and Mrs. Monkeygirl would be home and we are set.  Thursday night, they call again to confirm.  So, tonight, 10 minutes after our scheduled appointment time, they call again.  Oops, they need to reschedule again for next week because they are really busy.  Uhm, do they care that we went out of or way to make sure we were home for them?  Do they care that I raced home to actually clean the bathroom first (I don't want them to see it dirty!!)? Is it just me, or is it kind of rude?  I'm happy for them that they are really busy and that they are getting all kinds of business from the home show, but I have my limits.  

We rescheduled the appointment - again - for Monday.  If they cancel on me again, then I'm done.  A girl can only clean so many times in one week!
