I can't believe it's only 10 pm on Thursday

Sleep deprived, I went to bed at 8, fell asleep quickly. Had a very vivid dream which felt like it had lasted all night, but when I awoke, only 2 hours had passed.

Woke up this morning at 7 (set two alarms 6:45 and 7, but the had forgotten to unmute both devices). Got up and drugged and dressed to be ready in case the crew arrived at the 8 am side of the 8-9 window they had said. 9:30 no one was there so I texted the supervisor. He texted back that he would call the crew chief.

Long story short, crew chief finally shows up at 10:45. Alone. He made some progress, by noon the hedge was pulled out, some of the rotted and warped trim at the carport side and back of the house had been removed. He said he was going to Home Depot to get replacement lumber.

At about 1:30 he showed up with one worker, and they shook the house pretty good using a power hammer to nail the new trim in place. They quit at about 3, didn't say a word to me about being done for the day or when they would be back. They only got about half of the work done.

At 5, when it was clear they were not coming back, I walked down the block and got my car back to the carport. Had an early dinner, and hit the sack.

Meanwhile, I finished the book and started another.

Had a call from a recruiter at about 10 am, thick Indian accent, she had trouble hearing me because she was working in a noisy call center. She described a job which I had received email about from four different recruiters, and her company is the one I responded to. She asked a bunch of stupid questions all of which were answered on my resume, and we agreed her manager would call me at 1.

Manager called me at 3:30. Indian guy, but excellent English and articulation. He asked a bunch of quasi-technical questions from a list, and said he would submit my info to the hiring manager. It's another job at Amazon, it turns out, so this was probably a massive waste of time.

Email from Janice, back from Fiji. We'll probably get together Sunday so she can tell me all about it, and all about how come she isn't going to Nevada on Sunday like she planned.

Plans for tomorrow:
Hopefully, a real crew will arrive in the morning to finish what they should have done today, and start caulking & painting.
1:45 pm appointment for a BP check in MV
