Give me a C-R-A-N-K-Y -- cranky! cranky! o-ver-tired!
The roof thing is stupid -- they started when it was nice, then stopped. The metal is ripped up and banging in the wind (when the wind is from the wrong direction). I emailed my landlord last Tuesday and he said a roofer had fallen off the roof and injured his foot but is nearly better. He said he, the landlord, had been laid off and would help the roofers finish. I* emailed again today and said, "When??? I don't need the whole roof finished but someone needs to stop the terrible noise!" The metal roof is going over top of the old roof, and yes, I'd bet there was a cheap deal in there somewhere. A cheap deal that is getting expensive, if you think about the damage probably letting water in, and the renter (me :-) about to ... I don't know what. The evil roof is quiet so far...may get some sleep tonight. Josie asked me what I was doing for T'giving. I said I was going to Con's to have T'g with her and her family. She said, "Where's your mother?" Children are so innocent. I'm watching Fellini's 81/2 (Otto e Mezzo, apparently) from the library. Marcello Mastroianni was such a beautiful man.
*dossed down on the crummy couch with earplugs and tylenol pm and pillow over my head -- still no sleep........
