The Work Goes On....and on....and on.....

You know they're going to be working on your road a long time when they bring one of these.


Yes, the port-a-potty arrived on the middle of our crescent last week and then the work began.


I have been trying to get all my house stuff done in the mornings and get out back with the dogs as it is just so noisy all day. But a couple of days it was just to cold to be outside.  When we are in the house Fred spends his days watching the work go on outside the window.


Since they started all the digging, our internet has been wonky and sometimes it just takes me forever to get a post up when I do have a connection or I just lose the connection all together half way through loading pictures.


I try to stay calm and not curse the workers outside my window.  But I have to say, more swear words have passed my lips the past week than I would like.


There is nothing more frustrating than losing your internet connection. I tell myself to just walk away and do something else, but it's like having withdrawal and I find I'm back checking it every few minutes thinking I can at least get some commenting in before I lose it again. So, if my posts and comments seem a little sporadic lately, it's just me fighting with my internet connection.  Apparently they will be working on our road  until the end of July.  Ugh!  So I think Fred will be doing lots of this.


And I will probably have to take up a new language so I can learn some new swear words! The good news is this is a long weekend here in Canada so they won't be back working until Tuesday!  Yay!

  2. Oh.... noise can really tare your nerves to bits. Hope they finish up quickly... That hole they were digging looks pretty big though. I think you and the pups need ear muffs.... In the meantime... enjoy the peach and quiet of the weekend.

    pawhugs, Max

  11. There are so many things I could say about their bringing in a little porta-potty, but I'll spare you...But you're right, they are setting up to be there for awhile. I remember when they did the same thing where we used to live. My frustration came from 10 people standing around a hole, and one man working...I hope it all is done soon, and so Fred can stop working so hard! :-)) Enjoy your weekend!!!

  17. Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Hi Miss Janet.

    Uh oh, what a big bummer. We totally understand Miss Janet... may I recommend a pair of ear plugs or ear muffs or headphones or ... you get the idea...

    Fred, dude, cool front row seat!

  18. What a headache this must be for you. An unstable internet connection for me would not be acceptable as I work from home. I sure hope you enjoy the peace and quiet on your long weekend.

  21. Have a wonderful, quiet weekend; Fred's pensive appearance is quite charming despite the reason. Personally, if I am over half way to giving up my home internet and using the multiple free WiFi sites around, esp. that of our lovely library. Hang in there!

  22. Yes indeed...you have our sympathies! It is SO frustrating to be without internet!!

  23. Oh dear - the arrival of a portaloo means it's serious! Hopefully once the dust settles you'll have a lovely road!

  24. Swearing this week must have been the popular trend but alas, mine was due to different circumstances lol.

    Want some GREAT swear words? Get a hold of me! Been swearing since age 7....lol

  25. Let's see...English swear words, French swear words, Spanish swear words...and looking up insults in other languages is always fun! Of course, one must typically have Internet for that :(

  26. Loss of internet seems to be going around...lol. The bright side...should your bathroom break there is a spare close by. ;)

  27. Hopefully the poor internet connection won't last until July! I get so frustrated when that happens to me.

  28. Yikes, we hope the work is done soon.

  29. Having constant noise always puts me on edge - and losing my internet connection? That would put me over the edge :) Hope you had a great weekend!
