Hey everyone. Another update on the situation here in Texas.
Well, just when we thought progress was being made, something happens.
In this case....we're having to >_> YEP! Back to square 1 (or square 7 or so since we got the cement blocks still there) . Due to the boards for the foundation being not squared and a little catty-wompus, thanks to bad cuts and warped wood, the stepdad decided to just scrap the floor foundation we made. This has honestly been a pain in the ass for all of us and frustrating since a lot of the problems could have been fixed if: A). The parents hired some people to do this for them; or B). The stepdad would plan shit out beforehand rather than doing this last minute and then not explaining his plans fully. Or you know, write them down or something.
Sadly, this has been a problem we've been having to deal with for a while. My boyfriend Arc, his mom, and I are trying to follow the stepdad's directions but he either explains in breadcrumbs, or just kinda does it in his head and on-the-go. Arc's mom is pretty much fed up and now has made it a point to ask him "A bazillion questions" before we do anything. That and we're gonna take things a little slower and more precise, since the stepdad wanted to cut corners and "speed up the process". NOW, we're gonna be doing the foundation in a more "simpler" configuration.
To be fairly honest, it does SEEM like it's gonna be simpler, but then again, the stepdad seems to have a talent for making simple things tougher than needed. Still, we're gonna be at this for a bit longer, especially with the weather being the way that it's going to be in the next few days. The first order of business is to retrieve more cement blocks from the backyard and also buy a few more to finish off the amount we need. Then, we do some measuring, re-spacing, and moving around the blocks so we can put the boards in. This time, WE AIN'T NAILING SHIT UNTIL IT IS RIGHT! (according to the mom unit). This time around, we got some treated lumber so that the rain will be less likely to warp the wood like before. Hopefully, that works. And THEN! Well we do the rest. Seriously, if you ever wanna build a shed or something like that, the foundation and getting it right is the hardest part for damn sure.
I'm just hoping we can get this damn shed done this week so we can move by the end of the month, or sooner. This fluffmonster is done and wants to get this over with.
For my Patreon rewards. I'm sorry things have been a lacking and rather shitty couple of months for content Considering how much of the day is taken up by the building, the only time I can work is at night, but I can't stay up too long since I have to help the next day. (Also, it sometimes wears me out to the point that I just wanna do nothing but game or watch TV). So finding time to really work on anything has been tough. I haven't forgotten about your rewards. To be quite frank, I've myself multiple moments of grief and anxiety obsessing over them, because I don't want to fail you all, even if the situation is out of my control.
Regardless, I will be keeping you posted on matters. Hopefully news will be good these next few days.
So yeah, this is all I have for now. I'm irritated, frustrated, exasperated and just want to get this whole "move" situation over with. It's just wearing on my nerves and I honestly just want to get everything or mostly everything done so I can take a hiatus, focus on Patreon and small personal things, and decompress. I'm not blaming any one of you, I blame myself for thinking this will be a quick thing (and the parents because this shit should have been done MONTHS ago).
Take care all. I'll seeya around for another update. Sorry for the again for the lack of content. I would understand completely if any of you would prefer unpledging, either indefinitely or until things pick back up. Either way, I appreciate whatever support you have granted me, and I hope to
