Sorry for my absence as of late. Things have been crazy around here and not necessarily in a good way. So allow me to vent for a bit
It all started last Saturday. I worked 9-11 and couldn't wait to hurry home and lay out by the pool. My blogger friend KPOD was coming over and I was excited about having company and relaxing on such a nice Saturday. Of course I forgot to bring water to the pool and needed to go back to my apt to get a bottle. I walk back to my apartment and see three kids sitting on my patio. Just hanging out talking to the kids that live upstairs from me. Now this has been an ongoing problem. Kids in my complex are never supervised. The other day I had a kid throwing golf balls into my window cause he was trying to throw the ball to the kids upstairs. This caused my dogs to go crazy. So seeing the kids on my porch aggravated me. I politely said hi and asked what they were doing thinking they would get the hint and leave. Nope. So I go in and my dogs are going crazy. Now my love seat is pushed up against the window and the dogs were on the love seat trying to look out the window to see what was going on. So I put a chair up on the couch and gave them a bone to occupy them. Well I saw that one kid had a ball of some sort but again didn't say anything. So after laying out some more we finished up by the pool and walked back to my apt. You could see when walking up the blinds were torn apart. I walk in and the dogs were both on the love seat regardless of the chair and the blinds looked like they had been eaten. Now in order for my dogs to do that they had to have been highly aggravated. I was pissed. But oh well there wasn't much I could do
So that night after babysitting for a friend I got home and checked the mail. In my mail box was a letter from the County of Circuit courts. Remember that speeding ticket I got, the one the officer told me I didn't have to go to court for and that all I needed to do was mail in a money order for the violation amount. Yea, even though I did that I got a letter stating that I owed more money since the officer wrote down the wrong amount and I now had to go to court. Which meant I would have to take off work and pay more money. Just perfect
Monday I went off to the apt office and explained about the blinds. The office manager was on my side and stated that they had been having alot of problems with kids being unsupervised and cauing problems. ALl I needed to do was pick up some cheap blinds and they would put them in for me. Problem solved.
The rest of the week passed by and on Thursday I received a letter from the District Attorney's office stating my case and charges had been dismissed since the officer was no longer with the dept. Score!! That def made my day
My good mood friday didn't last long. I decided to have my friends over for dinner. The one who just had her baby. Since I didn't want the dogs out with the kids around, I put them in my bedroom, gave them their favorite bones and closed the door. Well after my company left I walked to let them out of the bedroom and couldn't open the door. Something was blocking it. I pushed with all my might and finally got the door opened. It was carpet I had gotten stuck on and now it was ripped all the way across the door way. I's assuming because the dog tried to claw her way out.
SO not only do I have a blanket covering my window's until I can get my blinds fixed, a blanket over my couch covering a rip, I now have a blanket covering a hole in my carpet. Living like trash lol
And not only do I have to deal with all this, I have to deal with the wrath of my hubby who is quite irritated. I think I called my mom friday night at midnight and had a nervous breakdown.
Last night tornado's fiasco didn't help matters. Thanks to everyone's prayers and well wishes. I am ok, only a trailer park was hit a few miles up the road and everyone who lived in the trailer park survived and didn't have too much damage thankfully. Of course when my hubby called I expected to be comforted. That didn't happen, his response was it's tornado season, get used to it. Ugh
Thankfully I am heading to Wisconsin this weekend to spend some much needed time with my family and friends. I am counting down the days until I leave. I need a much needed break
So here is a glimpse into my life on the homefront for now. Ahh it feels so good to unload
