No, my attic still isn't finished. The plumber has been long gone, and when he left he said the city building inspector needed to inspect what he just finished. However, I remember the contractor telling me that the inspector was only coming once, and he wouldn't come until after the electrician was back.

Tomorrow the electrician is finally due back.

I remember when I was pregnant with my first son. People kept asking me when the baby was due. "Some time in June", I said. June came and went, and no baby. July came. My son wasn't born until 25 days into July.

When I was pregnant with my 2nd son, people asked "when is the baby due? " I said sometime in December. December came and went, and a new year began. My son wasn't born until January the 11th.

People keep asking, "How's the new attic?" When I tell them it still isn't done they just shake their heads. I can't read their minds but they are probably thinking that I hired an incompetent to do the job.


All I know is, this is worst than being pregnant.
