Insult to injury

Well, this was enjoyable:

Already stewing that the painters we hired have started their work on our house later than promised, we received a call from them yesterday telling us that the wind blew the storm door open and the force against the railing smashed it to bits. 

Already bummed that my house looks awful during all the painting prep, this wasn't exactly a treat I enjoyed pulling up to. 

Oh, and are you curious how much progress from my last post about the painting has been accomplished?  Here's the before (soak it in):

And here's the after:

What's that?  You can't tell the difference?  Oh, there's a difference alright: Almost two months between each photo.

And I continue to stew.

I'm so sorry. What a terrible day. If it makes you feel any better I love the note cards. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job!

Ugh! Home improvement projects NEVER go as planned whether you're paying someone or doing it yourself. There's always something. Let's hope the painters get their rears in gear for you!!
