When it rains it pours...

So, what's been going on with us lately? Well, we got our fence posts up and the day before the fence is to be finished, Ivory tells us we have the wrong property lines and have to redo the entire fence. Our construction foreman, during our final walk-through, showed us exactly where the property lines are, the sprinklers and landscaping were even done to these lines. He now claims he never told us anything of the sort, so we will have to fork over a nice chunk of change to fix the fence.
The weather is finally getting nice, up to the upper 80's. So of course, our air conditioner isn't working properly. It freezes up if it has to cool the house below 80. I have had someone out here 4 times to look at it. In fact, the service manager was here for almost 4 hours today trying to fix it. We thought he had finally done it, only to find our inside unit encased in ice before going to bed tonight.
The tile in the girls' tub is cracked along and entire corner of the wall, Miles' bedroom door won't shut properly, and everything I submit to warranty they tell me they will fix it at my year end paint touch-up and I end up having to fight tooth and nail over it.
I am tempted to say there is too much going wrong right now, but I have decided that I would rather have it that way. This way, after everything is taken care of, there is nothing else to go wrong and I can have a nice long peaceful time where nothing goes wrong. =)

On the plus side, Morgan wears these oversized plastic yellow glasses all day long...except when I have the camera...just walking around like she has always worn them and nothing is out of the usual, and it makes my heart happy every time I see her.

Wow...that property thing really sucks!

Hope everything starts going your way soon.

(Keep making your Mama smile, Morgan, we mamas sure need it sometimes!)

I like that theory-- that if we can cram all the crap into one period of time, we can then have some time OFF from crap.

Best of luck. Sounds REALLY frustrating!!!

But the yellow glasses thing is DARLING.
