Finding a good handyman

January 5th, 2010 at 11:13 pm

LOL. Sometimes its who you know! My mom's old coworker's son in law does handyman work. And apparently is VERY reliable (from references).

I called to have him give me an estimate on replacing an existing ceiling fan & light in my living room. I'm just not comfortable tackling the job myself, so I'm willing to pay to have it done. He'll give me an estimate tomorrow afternoon, so hopefully it won't be too bad. In the mean time, I need to go shopping for a fan!

In other news. Although the roommate isnt officially moving in until Saturday, he has been bringing stuff by the house. He's very nice and polite. Since he's not officially moved into the house, he has called prior to stopping by to drop stuff off. AND he noticed the new rods in the closets and thanked me for installing them!

Today, I've spent $1.90 on a soda & soft pretzel and another $1.35 on a second soda. I really need to cut out the soda addiction. But in the meantime, I need to buy some cans so I don't pay for soda at work anymore!

Its inventory time at the part time job and crazy me signed up for extra hours. Because its a store and cannot close during normal hours, the inventory hours are 9pm to 6am. Its mandatory that I'm there for the inventory in my department (Thursday) until 2am and then they ask for ANY additional hours we can give them to help other depts.

So now I will be working the following:

Thursday 6pm to 2am
Friday (OFF)
Saturday 6pm to 2am
Sunday 10:45 am to 7:15pm
Monday 6pm to midnight.

Then I'm off the spare job until the following Sunday. But I'm still crazy.

    I would love to marry a handyman! Worth his weight in gold!

    I adore soft pretzels and every time I go to the mall, which is seldom, i treat myself to one with mustard. Mmmmmm.

    I have a bunch of ceiling fans here and I've found sometimes since they charge by the hour, it's worth it to have him do several things while he's there to make it worth his time there. Just so you can compare, I'm guessing I paid about $150 to have a guy install or replace a ceiling fan. (I have 3 now, kitchen, office and bedroom, love 'em.)

    Just think of all the money the extra hours will bring in! Plus the room mate!! Awesome! Smile
