Finally, my schedule is back to what I like. Four days off, and the of the three days that I work, 2 of them are only 6 hour shifts. 20 hours a week. I had been concerned about those hours back when I went part-time because I do like to spend money and thought that perhaps my expenditures might need to be curtailed somewhat. That has proven not to be the case.
The product for my new countertops has changed. Originally the plan was to go with a man-made hard surface, there would be no need for sealing it yearly, and I'd chosen something called Sand Smoke. However, when I went into work yesterday, I saw that the price had gone up from $66 per square foot to $88 per square foot. Wowza! Can we talk price increase! A 33% increase is too much. If I'm going to spend that much, then I'm going to go with a natural stone, even if it does need to be sealed. So, after wasting far too much time, I've decided to go with marble, something called Fantasy Brown. Hopefully, all the price increases were processed yesterday and that won't be going up in the next 3 weeks.
