Meltdown Level = Three Mile Island

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Today, our contractor put in our garbage disposal, new kitchen sink, and the vent on the range hood.

No big deal right?

WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!

First, my boyfriend had to leave for work early today, so there were 2 people in my house, doing these things while I am trying to sleep. That made me feel weird even though they are very nice, very respectable gentleman. (not to mention the one is quite nice looking) BUT -- it is still weird to have these people in your house while you are trying to sleep.

When I woke up... my kitchen was torn apart. I just stood there in a sleepy eyed stupor thinking... WTF?

I couldn't make my tea... I couldn't make my ham, egg and cheese sandwich... I had to "use the bathroom" with strangers in my kitchen... it was not a good day. When I finally couldn't take it anymore, I decided to go for a jog. I made it 1.2 miles in about 11 mins. Pretty impressive!

When I got back, my mother in law was there, so her and I chatted for a while. I figured by the time I got back upstairs they would be done... NOPE!

So, I couldn't pack my lunch for work because my counters were a mess, they were still working... ugh! The worst part is I made some awesome stuff to bring along! I grabbed an apple, string cheese, orange, kind bar, and a frozen dinner. We had Subway too.

Here is the thing... I have a routine. When that routine gets disrupted, I have issues.

I actually left early today and went to the library before work because I was in such a tizz!

Anyway, I hope my fellow Sparkies had a better day than I!

    I get it. I hate that creepy feeling when there are strangers in my house when I am trying to sleep or am in the bath. I sleep like a log on planes though, go figure?
I love my routine too, but with kiddies and my special breed of DH it has become the norm to have it busted.
Anyway, hope tomorrow will be better...

    I don't like it when my routine is messed up either. I have certain ways of doing things and do not want them changed. Sorry you had a rough day.

    I have a problem with routine interruptions too. And I really get mad at myself when they are my fault. Hopefully the day gets better from here for you!

    Looks like you managed well, even though your routine was disrupted. Change is good sometimes.

    TMI and meltdown! Jeez, I remember when that happened. Plus, I drive within sight of it every morning! Hope your kitchen gets back in order quickly.

    But think how nice the kitchen will be when everything is new and finished!
I understand about having a routine, it helps you stay on the healthy living track and when time is limited every second counts.
Good luck and hope the day goes better.

    Well hopefully your routine isn't busted for too long. Good for you though going to the library for some quiet time. I have my routine also and it doesn't take much to get me out of sorts.

    Having a routine is good unless it is disturbed, right? But it sounds like your Plan B worked fine.

Having repairs done while you are trying to work your life is definitely disturbing at best.

    Sorry that you had such a rough day. Getting thrown off the routine can be hard when the routines we have are working so well. Hopefully tomorrow is better for you!
