Breakfast at Cecilias


We tried to eat brunch at Left Bank at noon but their first availabke table was at 2 and we had a lot more chores to do.

I called Bettys and asked if they had a table for three available and the lafy on thr phone said, "we might if you came in and out your name on the list." So we skipped that for today and maybe forever.

So we just rode our bikes down Elmwood and ended up at Cecilias. I never ate inside before but outside was just for cocktails. The food was quite yummy. I had the lobster and crab cake benedict and a bloody mary. I would definately go back.

Bathroom Deconstruction Continued


Its amazing how much I got done in 9 hours yesterday. (e:robert) helped a bunch beofe he had to go to work. After he left I went into psycho mode and pretty much finished the room except the ceiling and floor. Smashing the bathtub apart in order to throw it out the window was a herculean feat. I was so exhausted after sledge hammering it into peices that lifting the parts to throw them out the window into the dumpster almost broke me. It was amazing how much space is between the floors. I still havent found the ceiling and I got about a foot down.

Now that sp much is gone I am much more confident that it can be completed.

Stages of Haircut

I started by accident without the safety so I didn't have a lot of options.

I forgot I had lips, lol. The bruises on my face are from the safety gear I use for working on the the bathroom. My nose never fits.

Home Improvement Center Sucks, Buffalo NY 14226 - Terrible Customer Service

I can't say how their work is because we never made it that far, but I can say their customer service sucks.

Two week in a row I scheduled an appointment for the Home Improvement Center (2991 Sheridan Dr Amherst, NY 14226) to come and do an estimate for some home improvement project I am working on and took time out of my schedule.

Last week they canceled like an hour before the appointment because the guy couldn't make it. I was annoyed but things happen, I let it slide. We scheduled for today at 1PM.

At around 1 I called to confirm they were coming this time and the secretary said the guy was on his way. At 1:22, 22 minutes late, I get a call saying he couldn't park in my driveway so he wanted to reschedule.





::DOWNLOAD SOUND::



My neighbors had some trees being cut and, like every group in the world, the workers decided my driveway was fine to park in front of.
Yes, that is annoying but the is parking all over the place within one block of walking, not to mention those people blocking the driveway were gone shortly thereafter. What if I didn't have a driveway, would he not do an estimate then? There are plenty of houses without driveways and who can guarantee off street parking right in front of a house in downtown buffalo. God forbid the guy could walk a block. That or he could have just waited seeing as he already had inconvenienced me taking off the week before.

I could have rescheduled but how can you trust someone who flakes out two weeks in a row on just the estimate. I called the guy back and canceled. Then I called the secretary and asked to speak with a manger. She says no one is around, then the same guy calls me back to say he is the manager and there is frustration on both ends because I could have told him someone would be blocking the driveway. I didn't even know that was going on. I decided to just give up on them because there was no point if the same guy who thought that was acceptable was also the manager.

Long and Stressful Day


I used to love going to work everyday but right now its taken such a bad turn where it feels like there is no direction. I can't wait for things to change.

On the technical side of things I got a lot of programming done this evening.

Those graphs aren't actually supposed to make sense. At least I hope not because that first project looks like 1% complete and 100% budget consumed.

Demolition Continued


We continued before (e:xandra)'s birthday party at my mom's. So much more is done but we need to do a mega cleanup now. Then deconstruct the floor, half the wall and the tub. Then the building can begin. I feel like once this is done we will end up learning so much which will open up the possibilities for bigger and better projects.
