So much for tonight

As I mentioned earlier, tonight was supposed to be another long night of painting. Not that I enjoy it, but I like that when I finish, my house will be just like I want it to be.
Well, if you put two and two together, i’m obviously not at the house painting like I should be.

I got to the house at around 6:45pm to start work, opened the door, and flicked the light switch. Nothing. Flicked the living room switch, nothing. Walked around the house flicking switches, nothing. THE POWER IS TURNED OFF. Just fucking great. First the heat, now the power.
And on one of the most important nights. A night I was counting on to get things mostly finishged. A night I actually had a lot of help coming over to get things accomplished.

We call the power company, and guess what? They don’t care. It isn’t an emergency in their eyes, so they won’t turn the power on until tomorrow. Tomorrow I won’t have as much help, tomorrow was supposed to be finishing up.

I love that the people selling us the house failed to tell us the heat and power would be cut off BEFORE we moved in, when we’re doing repairs THEY told us we were to do and not them. Thanks a fucking lot!

I’m so incredibly mad right now it’s unreal. Here I am, sitting on my bed in my PJs, thinking about what I SHOULD be getting done over at the new house to prepare it for move in. Now i’m not even sure it will be ready at all. Before it was seeming very possible, now? not so much at all.

I’d love to try and bust as tomorrow and get things done, but I don’t want to be at that house by myself into who knows how late.

The ONE night that the weather isn’t freezing, there’s no fucking power. Complete bullshit.

I am going to need swarms of help to finish this house, and I don’t think i’m going to be getting it. Just great.

And yes, i’m being negative, and I have every right to be. Take your holier-than-thou bullshit somewhere else today.
