So last weekend we finally went to see the Barbie Dream House again. The ceiling plaster was finished, the electrical wiring is finished, and the rooms had door frames, but besides that, not much had changed. Maybe more stuff would be done if the painters spent more time painting and less time trying to get it on with French Mother-in-law. Papa says this guy kissed her like 5 times.
Oh wait---the helicopter landing pad is officially done. Now all we need is flying lessons...and a helicopter. We're accepting donations.
I mean it's almost done...except for this chipped tile which I am making them replace because, well, I'm just that uptight.
In the next 2 weeks the really important stuff should start happening, like painting and tiling and...other stuff...like running water. Oddly enough, some people have already moved in. The little retired couple below us has already set up their terrace!
Whatever. I'll just be happy when its done and I don't have to climb up that ladder to get to my bedroom!
When we were about to leave the building we met a very young couple who were moving some items into their apartment. They weren't thrilled with the speed with which their apartment was being completed. I can only guess that they are first time buyers and nobody warned them about the 3 month standard French delivery delay. Poor kids! I have no idea how they are surviving. Uhm, our apartment delivery date was supposed to be July 31st. It's almost the end of August and this is what my kitchen looks like:
Riiiiight. Definitely not ready for cupcake baking. But last week we did get a call to let us know that the Star Trek kitchen is ready to be delivered, and tonight we go to verify the floor tile color for the kitchen...again. So I can't complain. It is happening.
So I'm anxious, but not that anxious. Hell, I'm not moving untill the internet & satellite connections are complete!
I mean, let's not get crazy up in here.
