Can't A Guy Get A Break?

The title of this post could also be, "The best laid plans of mice and men, often go awry". As this mouse told you in the post "Progress" two days ago I have just started on a project of decluttering my home and had set a generous time limit for myself until mid-December.

Well, today I received notification that my landlord wishes to carry out maintenance of all the windows and window frames in the building. He therefor requests that I leave access to carpenters and painters to perform their jobs next Thursday. Knowing what gossipmongers such craftsmen usually are I have to revise my plans and increase the speed significantly.

At first it felt like a heavy blow- I was stressed out and got discouraged and just wanted to sit down and scream, but after thinking about it a few hours I am starting to think it may perhaps be a blessing in disguise. I will of course need to hire someone to help with throwing the heavy stuff - as I am not allowed to lift yet after my surgery ten weeks ago - and a cleaning crew.

Tomorrow I will book a cleaning crew for Tuesday or Wednesday next week and after work I am going to buy garbage bags and get going with the work I need to do. It should work out, hopefully. I will follow the Nike slogan and
"Just Do It".


  1. Wish I could help you buddy.
    Just think when it's over with how good you will feel about your acomplishment!

  2. This is great news Bock! Sometimes it's best to just not have time to think about it too much.

    You're gonna feel really good when this is over with and you will have nice windows too.

  3. yes just do it and get it over with:) mind you after the window ppl have been there it needs a cleaning again;) when i had guys here changing the windows they stomped around in muddy shoes (and kicked over my big mirror in the hallway breaking a lamp and a shelf but thats another story). wish i could lift and carry heavy stuff i would have been on the first train down to help you.
