Workers are installing our new windows. They are energy efficient and they are pretty! By Las Vegas standards, our house is old. I like to preserve or restore things whenever possible, but windows from fifty years ago just don't do the job here in the desert. I originally had my heart set on Pella or Andersen windows, but I fainted when we got a quote. Jim picked me up off the floor and we decided to go with a different company.
I thought the installers were going to be here on Friday, so I secured the cats in the guest bathroom Thursday night. I wanted no escapes through doors or windows. The guys didn't come until Saturday. (Having read Diana's posts about Italian workers, I thought maybe I wasn't really in Las Vegas... Maybe I was in Italy:)) The cats weren't too happy - four cats, one bathroom, no cat tree - not a good thing. I moved them to a bigger room last night. My philosophy on punctuality has become much more relaxed. (Diana's construction stories always have a happy ending, so what the heck:)) I now say there is no reason to stress as long as we are not left with a big hole and no glass covering it overnight. I'm getting used to their schedule. If they're supposed to be here by 1:00, they'll be here the next day. If they're supposed to be here by 7:00, they'll be here by 8:00... The important thing is that they are really nice guys who are doing a super job.
