Hahaha. Thanks, guys. Yeah, MOST everything is done. I still haven't repaired the floor in the kitchen, we're just living with it. The floor isn't really that bad...there's a couple of spots near the stove that there's some heat damage, so the insurance company had to write for the whole thing, as you can't just cut out a spot of vinyl floor. The idiot contractor splashed some paint and some kinda glue on it in a couple of spots, which makes it look a little worse. Money-wise, I think I'm still actually significantly ahead of the game (like I said, the insurance company was pretty generous). Really the only reason I haven't fixed the floor yet is because I don't want to deal with another idiot in my house again. I'm thinking of maybe doing some tile myself, but I'm a klutz and I don't know if I trust myself.....plus, I'm lazy
Still haven't gotten an exterminator, either. It's quite an awkward situation - he's my co-worker's father-in-law. I'm good friends with her (the coworker), and with her husband (the bug man's son), and I've actually met him (the bug man) a couple of times. I think he was quoting me a really lowball price as a favor, but I didn't ask for it! I would feel like a nuisance, asking my coworker to call him again. And to be brutally honest, if it were anyone else, I would have just written this guy off by now and called someone else. I guess that's probably what I will do before long - just forget about this guy and call another bug man.
