I should be happy....

I guess I should be happy with this little scene out my window today. I should be happy that these men have jobs. I should be happy that the electrical grid will be updated in the neighborhood. I should be happy knowing that it's not just my yard that is ripped up.

But am I happy? Not so much. No. This has been going on for about a month now. Thankfully, not in my yard every day. But the droning of that machinery is about to make me crazy! How do these people do it, day in and day out? And I have to tell ya, the bunnies don't like it either! Enough whining, I'm outta here!

Not to mention that it's probably not good for selling your house either, is it? Whoops..I'm adding to your whining, aren't I?

Love to you, sister in dry lands :)

you missed a couple reasons, you should be glad you have underground cables. you should be glad you have someplace else to go. in houston the telephone company came through my back yard with a trench digger.... ripped my flower bed up and left the mess when they left.... and still had bad phone lines.

how is the weather? how is you Mom?

I can't imagine! We've had an electric power truck sitting out front just running and it's driving me crazy.

That's definitely not a welcome sight.

Definitely one for The Glad Game. But sometimes it's hard to play.
