It is no secret that after my husband leaves for work at 7am, I go back to sleep. Or rather, I continue my sleep, because some mornings I barely open my eyes enough to say goodbye. Lately I haven't been doing too bad, getting up around 11am or so, I used to sleep in until 2pm or later. I'm sure those days will come in time, once we get a comfortable mattress.
Well, yesterday I was rudely awakened about 9am by a sound that, had I not had all my wits about me, would have sounded like I lived in a dentist's office. Some workmen, in some apartment nearby, were using some type of saw/drill thing that was incredibly loud. And they used it for three hours straight.
Surely, I thought to myself, whatever they were drilling/sawing would have been done by this morning. Around 9am, I was rudely awakened by a sound not unlike what you might hear if the entire building around you was being demolished. Hammering, smashing, tearing down. After a couple of hours of that, thus proceeded the drilling/sawing. Obviously, they are building an amusement park in one of these apartments.
Now, I know remodeling apartments is a major part of Greek life. I just wish people would do it quietly.
