I have to say, every day with this fireplace seems to be driven not by a need to make money or do a great job, but rather to sow drama. Every. Day.

Today the inspector was supposed to show up. Went to lunch, inspector shows up and leaves, not to return until tomorrow. Can I at least be given a frickin' time-frame that he will...

I tell you, if I were running either of these companies installing this fireplace, I would be embarrassed at how terrible I was doing. This is not a hard thing, but yet...

It seems every day must be filled with some drama. This morning was to be told by the guys installing the gas, electrical (GC) that they were still waiting on the permit to...

I am so stressed about this fireplace I am about to pop!
It's like these guys, who have supposedly installed hundreds of fireplaces, have never done this before. The fireplace guys (FP) did not think about insulating around the fireplace (it's an exterior wall people!!!!) to prevent drafts. The subcontractor who installed the venting and hooked up the electrical and gas (GC) didn...

Hello loves, been a bit for me. I've been up and down, overly stressed. I drive myself batty sometimes. Today the guys are here running the gas line, venting and electrical to the new fireplace. Phryne is watching them like it's a good show.

I hope you are all having fun. Love and happiness to you.

Well, the last 2 days have been pretty good with Phryne. I wasn't feeling all that great on Sunday, I was having tons of anxiety. Some days I just don't know how Karen puts up with me. Yesterday my stomach was a bit dodgy, but I managed to get lots done regardless. Most all of our Christmas decorations are up, I just have...

I wish You a sunny day :)
Two things...First I did jinx it with Phryne biting me, so she has been doing that the last few days. But, she is trying to be better, and so am I.
Second, I am absolutely so freaking anxious that I cannot function properly. Completely brain-locked. All I want to do now is go to bed and hide. My brain hurts with all the things...

So far two days of great interactions with Phryne! Since we trimmed her flight feathers she has been a bit less aggressive and calmed down. We are now starting from the beginning with the UP command and working on gentle interactions. While she has nipped me upon occasion, it has not been with the intent to draw blood, rather to let me know of her...

Today was a good day with Phryne. While she did bite me a couple of times, they were just warning bites rather than full fledged must die bites. So I respected her space and she calmed down. Also, whole she did charge me a few times, I stopped what I was doing with and payed attention to her, and that seemed to satisfy her. I...

Thanks @miiel.  It was a good day and so much food!

You know what? Every woman I know in real life, which is quite a few since I bond with women much better than men, except one has been raped. Most of them I knew about, but recently found out from the rest this is the case. I know, this is not a novel thing that women are being raped, but the number of women is...

Starting to feel better today. Wiped out already, really tired, but I'm going to push myself a bit and try to get stuff done around the house. Thanksgiving is on Thursday in the US and we have a full house of people coming, so I want to get as much done as possible so we can enjoy the holiday and people, rather than running...

Poor Phryne doesn't know what hit her. One moment she was able to fly, the next she was not.
While she was preening, she had her back to me and one wing extended, showing her flight feathers. I had scissors...**snip**...she looked up, but continued preening on the other side...**snip**...what the? The looked around, but couldn't see what had tugged...
