Thoroughly pissed

I am getting so fucking sick of the handyman we have “working” on things around the house. He makes Alf and Ralph Monroe on Green Acres look like the Scott Brothers. He has been fixing the attic store room for freaking months. He keeps disappearing, and every possible thing that can go wrong for him personally has.

ordinarily, I’d say fuck it and hire someone else, but he’s a family friend...sort of.  
added to all that, he owes us $$ he is supposed to pay us off. By finishing 3 jobs, but at this point I’ll be damned if he gets near my bathroom.

Oh no, this sounds like trouble. Are you at least happy with how he does the work? What an annoying situation.

Will he even stay a family friend if you're so sick him already?

He dumped us on FB in mid August. He owes us a shit load of $. I am pissed and embarrassed because looking back, I see I was love bombed. I hate the idea, but it looks like we will have to take him to court. 
 

we had friends of our son finish the attic. All the books are up in the attic and mostly organized. We can get the little guy into his own room in a couple weeks. Maybe Halloween.

      i quite like Evangeline Jo. It makes me think of Little Women and Jo March. I highly doubt that was their reasoning though. Nicknames could be Evy, Eva, vangy, vanny, gelly, lin, linny, angel, angey, angeline, evan, lots really.

      I always associate the name Evangeline with New Orleans.  

      My friend named her daughter Evangeline and they call her Eva like Ee-Va.  Like from the movie Wall-EE.

      Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie

      This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
      Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
      Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
      Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
      Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
      Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.

      This is the forest primeval; but where are the hearts that beneath it
      Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman?
      Where is the thatch-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers,--
      Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands,
      Darkened by shadows of earth, but reflecting an image of heaven?
      Waste are those pleasant farms, and the farmers forever departed!
      Scattered like dust and leaves, when the mighty blasts of October
      Seize them, and whirl them aloft, and sprinkle them far o'er the ocean
      Naught but tradition remains of the beautiful village of Grand-Pré.

      Ye who believe in affection that hopes, and endures, and is patient,
      Ye who believe in the beauty and strength of woman's devotion,
      List to the mournful tradition, still sung by the pines of the forest;
      List to a Tale of Love in Acadie, home of the happy.

      etc. etc. etc.

      And now I want beignets.

      I find it fascinating the second generation seem to be naming their kids a lot more biblical or evangelizing type names than JB & M did.

      I wonder about her nick name. Evy would be a logical choice, but Joy got there first. But, given they call Felicity Lissy, I'm not sure they'd go for logical. 

      They could call her Angie I suppose.
