Holy Cow – was March 25 really the last time I posted? Bad Me! Life has sort of taken the reigns lately and I just haven’t been getting here. First, our computer is still very temperamental. Just when I’ve managed to edit and upload pictures, it decides to crash losing all of my work. Secondly, my kitchen ceiling is still leaking. It has been 4 months and several repairs and no contractor has been able to find the leak entrance. So much for a new roof! Anyway, we just had someone do some repairs to the siding when we were also informed that our siding was a “bad job”. This annoys me to no end as we did a lot of research on the company we used. They were not some fly by night operation, but during the job there were some questionable workers at my house, about whom I complained at that time. We’re hoping that this leak is an isolated incident since this part of the house runs into another section of the roof (thankfully the only place on the house this happens). The contractor informed us that even though the siding job isn’t that great, we should be ok around the rest of the house. I’m not so sure, but the estimators from my home owner’s insurance agree. Once the leak is stopped, we will at least have our inside repairs taken care of by the insurance. Telling myself “Newly decorated kitchen” is the only thing that has stopped my head from exploding during this entire nightmare. And then there is the usual crap in life that takes over – hosting Easter, hosting other family events, events with the kids, sleep (yes, on occasion I have forsaken my blog so I can get some rest). But, I’m hoping to be back on the band wagon now that many of my obligations have been fulfilled. Thanks for sticking by and hanging in.
