These pass few days have been a bit stressful, especially the weekends when hubby wants to get everything done NOW.
There have been issues with the house at the final lap.
We finally got our water supply in, although the meter is not up yet since our pipes are not aligned and they need some special equipment to get it done. But I am not bothered now...free water to use given their inefficiency.
But then we realised that our dry kitchen output piping is blocked and the water cannot drain down!!!
And there seems to be a blockage causing the water from the tanki to NOT flow down to the other pipes in the house - air bubble or what, I heard it is normal.
And with all the lights up, our contractor told us that the last room downstairs does not have any electircity. And the door bell has too much electricity.
4 outstanding issues in what seems an almost ready to leave in house.
I was worried all weekend....not worried worried, more frustrated with the last minute hiccups.
But I have since learned to let go and leave my anxiousness and frustrations to God.
What needs to be done, has to be done. If I need to hack my newly painted wall and my new tiles again, I will just have to do that.
There have also been minor differences occuring in what used to be a happy activity - shopping! All due to the different ways we have been.
A typical example: Hubby wants to but a mat to be put inside, just by the front door. To me this is un-neccessary work becuase the job of dusting it/cleaning it would fall to me (my level of hygiene being much higher than hubby's). And what is the need of a mat when shoes are to be left outside and brought in by hand if required to be put in the shoe rack? But you see, in hubby's house, they wear their shoes in and if only anyone ever puts their shoes in the shoe rack! Thus in his opinion, a need for a mat to wipe their shoes.
I think at the end of the day, my justification to things are budget and extra maintenance work. Hubby's justification is convinience and beauty.
Because really, I spend more time at home. And I don't often relax. Instead I will be walking around looking for things that are dusty and need cleaning. Hubby comes home and TV and dinner are the main things on his mind.
But all is STILL good. Part of life. Part of learning. Part of living together.
By the way, anyone been to Daiso in The Curve?
