I am back home, a little disappointed that I was NOT able to witness the unfolding of this new chapter in Leo's life. I drove down yesterday (Wednesday) to help Leo obtain his house insurance and facilitate the propane hookup at his new house and then we were planning to drive to Coleman and watch them hook together the two sections of his new home. I was planning to be able to walk through this house and check out the interior but we were disappointed. When we arrived around noon the ground around the foundation was all leveled out, the steel beams were in place in the foundation and there was a trailer there holding the equipment to get the house on the foundation but NO workers.
We decided to go into town and have lunch and wait, hoping that they were just on their way. After a lunch in town we drove back out and still nothing. In hind sight, I should have gotten on the phone right then and found out what was going on but instead we were still hopeful and decided to go to Midland and look for a present for Leo to send to Garrick on his birthday tomorrow (he is turning 4 already) When we arrived back STILL no workers. THEN I started doing some calling but by then it was about 3:00 and we were doubtful of their 'work ethic'. NO, they didn't get to our job yesterday AND they didn't even bother to call us and tell us they weren't going to make it.
Maybe you can see where this is going but I KNOW I will be sending them a scathing email when this job is completed. Communications are not part of their 'company plan'. I am VERY disappointed that they didn't take advantage of the beautiful day and get this job done. I decided to go along with my plan and spend the night at Leo's house even though the forecast was for rain all day today. I wanted to be a bit hopeful. It was raining this morning so I left about 11:00 after trying to reach the people at the company (only got voice mail and NO returned calls) The forecast is for rain most days until about Monday so I will try again next week to go down and check out the interior.
It was a beautiful fall day in Coleman yesterday the drive down was a wonderful fall day, full of bright tree colors and the full beauty of fall. The yellows are bright and shining this year. Just in time for Halloween.
SO, Trick or Treat!! Yesterday we had a 'Trick' Next week I am hoping for a Treat but I am not good at delayed gratification.
