Guess who didn’t call the gutter cleaners far enough in advance to get on their schedule in November? Me!!!!!!!!!! They are fully booked through the end of November – their earliest opening is the first week of December.
I asked if I could be put on a cancellation list for an earlier date (pre-Thanksgiving so the house would look good for guests and Mom’s birthday) and heard a little chuckle – he said, you and the ten others? There was nothing I could say at that point.
Now that I’ve royally messed up getting the gutters cleaned on time, it also screws the timing of having the windows washed. No sense in having the windows washed before the gutters because gutter cleaning can be messy if there’s accumulated muddy goop in the gutter too.
I’ll just go stand in the corner now. The windows I can do by myself but we don’t do gutters anymore – it’s much easier to pick up the phone and get others to do that.
Note to self: call sooner next year. Oy.
