I have strangers in my house and I'm not panicking!
« on: April 20, 2021, 10:14:25 AM »
This wouldn't have been possible a couple of months ago.
We needed some windows replaced and I made the appointment with the roofer thinking my wife would also be home but alas she is a nurse so sometimes things change around. So I'm now here with two men I don't know and for the first time in ages, I'm just relaxed. They're doing their job, I'm just chilling out, it's magic.


Not saying I don't feel a bit weird when they get loud with each other like handymen tend to do but... I'm not afraid. I'm literally more afraid that a pigeon is going to fly into the house (got no windows in after all) than I am of two men I don't know.


It took years to get to this point and tbh I'm feeling pretty proud of myself, first because I handled all the phone calls it took to get here and now because I'm doing pretty dang okay.

This is wonderful to hear Panda. It has really cheered me up thinking of you just chilling out while the roofers do their job.

Thanks, Blue Rose!


It's been about six hours now and I'm still pretty relaxed, just over having people in my space for so long but that would happen no matter what.
