More to and fro with the architect.

We are getting a bit of movement.

What I hate about it is that I have to be such a beotch to get anything at all to happen.

I honestly have a mental image of myself having to hold their feet to the flames to get them to work.  Honestly.  It is so medieval feeling.

*sigh*

That said, the vacations are almost here!

I've got some dinners and lunches lined up with friends, we've got some day trips planned, and we are looking at a couple of days out of here as well.....


Super sweet!

After today's round with the architects I am going to have to use that alphabet game again I bet.  In English this time.

I can, with all honestly, strongly advise anyone against buying property in Spain and attempting to renovate it.

Honestly.

It has been, overall, such an unpleasant experience.

Guess I'll put those buying plans of mine on hold...
Good thing vacation & good times are coming up - you need a break from all that stress.

Sleep well - A...B...C...

Visualization is good. Just make sure you include some images of revelry to match the ones from the Inquisition!

Maybe he just doesn't want to do anything much before the holidays???

Beth, yes indeedy..though that will also tightly match another session of inaction.....

JG...the Inquisition is somehow rather fitting though, no?

OH no! My experience with building a house was not too bad. I didn't divorce my husband, I didn't murder my contractor, Woody, and the kids are still alive. All in all, not too bad.

Good luck... hopefully one day this will be behind you.

The husband, no risk there. If we can live together on a 27 foot sailboat with two little kids for three years, we can do a home reno. We haven't gotten to a contractor yet....

We'll see.
