You all would be proud of the restraint I showed when called for the third week in a row to be informed that our re-roof will be delayed because of rain. After all it isn't the fault of the young lady who coordinates all the supply deliveries and work crews that we have had rainy weather the past few weeks.
I can only imagine some of the reactions she gets when she has to tell people things aren't going to happen in the time-frame they are expecting.
Fortunately we have no active leaks, so the delay is only an inconvenience of the mind. "Let's get this done!" is what has been going through our heads for weeks now.
Fortunately we have happy events too make us less cranky and I told the young woman to please not worry or stress about having to call me with a delay. We are lucky to be having our new roof put on with the help of our insurance company.
We are also lucky that in two days we will have a college graduate, in 6 days The Writer will celebrate his 27th birthday in LA and in 10 days the newlyweds will be here for Christmas. That we are all healthy and will be able to enjoy getting together for so many good reasons is so much more important than a silly new roof.
(But, please let it be done next week!)
