Oh Dear

Hello, my name is ABW and I am trying not to freak out.

We are finally back in the house after numerous mishaps.  More pipes frozen, water pressure messed up, no place to move furniture.  They drywalled over the switch to turn one pipe off and on.  They brought movers, then sent them away, then brought them back.  The movers broke a ton of stuff, including doors off my shrunk.  They said it was too heavy.  I told them it was funny that they thought it was heavy when Gunner and I moved it in this house.  Turns out they were from a temp agency and weren't movers.

So we are home, but of course nothing can be easy.

We have science fair projects due in less than 10 days, which we were able to start once we got back into the house.  It was a mad dash to make it work, and we have a backup plan if those experiments don't work.

Abs has been Abs these last few weeks, therefore resulting in never a dull moment, and constant stress and anxiety for me.  She's the one with GAD and I feel like I have it by having to keep up with her.

Junior took the time in the hotel really hard.

Emily is glad to be back in her own room.

Sammy came back to us, and got cleaned up.  I'm so glad that he's home, and even bought him a chicken pot pie from the dog bakery to celebrate.  Ummm....yeah....I have become one of those dog owners.  He's so sweet though!

We are sitting in kitchen chairs, and to be honest it is getting old.  I got a note on the door this afternoon that they want to send the adjuster over, or they are coming back to take more pictures or something equally insane.  They are not the most organized people, but I have to say that they are pretty nice.

More later when I can sit down for more than 5 minutes.  We just got back from OT, and have violin in a bit.

Off and running....

I'm so glad you're back home, even if it did involve conquering lots of stupidity. (Who sends temps instead of movers?) I hope your luck holds better for a good long time!

That sucks so much! I don't know what your options were but you'd think you could move to a new house while they take care of that one. Drywall over a switch? Really? And the movers breaking your stuff? That's so not okay.

Do you need me to send you a bottle of wine?

Wine is good!

I am sorry that you have had such a rough time of it lately.

Well that's great that you're out of the hotel at least! I hope they get everything taken care of.. FAST!
