Everything keeps going wrong with this fucking basement project. Seriously, this project is going to be the death of me. This week was rough for several reasons...
First, I knocked my palm sander off of the ladder and broke it. I was devastated. That was the first and only power-tool I have ever used.
Then, I noticed that two of our basement windows have broken glass. How did I never notice that before?
Finally, Lowe's called to inform us that they no longer carry the carpet we ordered. When why is it on display in your damn showroom? WHYYYYYYY???
Today was especially bad. John and I snipped at each other all afternoon. I felt like I was on the verge of tears over and over. The project is costing way more than I had anticipated, and I am just sooooo over the whole thing. I kind of wish we never would have started it. At a minimum, I wish we hadn't ripped up the carpeting already.
I was naive and thought the whole project would be done by the end of next week. But now, I have no idea when this thing will be done. Shit, we don't even have our carpeting picked out yet, and I have no idea who to call about the broken glass in the windows. I am guessing that the basement will NEVER be done, because we are just going to keep encountering more and more problems. It is a money pit.
