Hi Ash! nice to see you!

thanks everyone for the thoughts today. it was so hard. i had to do the walk through with the manager of the building. i had been there 2x's and she called and said "you HAVE to be out by TODAY. it is the 31st ya know!"
no kiddin' lady. thanks for your compassion.
i asked about her security deposit.
"oh i'm not sure about that?? i'll have to look into it."
ok good. please do that.
UGH!

jennifer and rhonda,
i can do the am.
bubba's friend is coming over in the afternoon.
which one and what time?
early is good for me!

morgansmom2000

Keep on that woman about the security deposit.. We know that house/apt was in great condition and if she calls you again tell her that you expect the deposit in the next 7 business days or you will be contacting your attorney! I'm glad I wasn't with ya, she probably would have gotten popped! What a b**b!

Love ya girl!!! Hang in there!!!

joyah
07-31-2009, 05:20 PM
Holly
Nan's right keep on that woman what a witch. People like that need prunes!
And I'm such a pain that I'd report her to the owners for lack of compassion and her attitude, she should have pointed out if there were any problems and told you when to expect the deposit. I wish I'd thought to tell you to take pics of the empty apt for a record of the condition people like that tend to be the ones to try and pull things over on grieving people.
Hang in there. enjoy your morning out and try to relax for a few mins.

9:00's good for me jennifer.
where is panera in franklin?? give me a clue so i can find you!

snap Christy! i never thought of pics of the place. i had a melt down last night leaving the place. i stood at the door bawling. bubba said to dh, "daddy, mommy's crying at the apt door!" dh's reply "that's ok buddy. leave her be. lets get on the elevator and let her have a minute alone."
so maybe pics would not be a good idea for me. as i might continue to look at them.
but you are both right. i'll keep on her. she asked what her forwarding address was going to be!!!! can you stand it??
dh said i should have said, it was Cloud 7, right hand of God. and her # is 1-800-HEAVEN! what the heck do you think her address is?? ya dope! how about sending what you have to, to my address with my #. you called me 3 x's today, so i know you have my #! DUH!

morgansmom2000
07-31-2009, 05:36 PM
She sounds like an idiot!

I'll be there at 9:00. It's right on 140, in the same plaza as Stop & Shop and Longhorn and Bath & Body Works? Um, if you go to 495 from King Street, it's the next exit going north, 17, I think.

Can't wait to see you!

07-31-2009, 05:39 PM

07-31-2009, 05:42 PM
No problem! It's one up from King Street, heading toward Bellingham (between King Street and the ACM Route 126 exit).

07-31-2009, 05:43 PM

and i can't wait too. i think i might be good for me to get out. and change of scenery might be good too!
are you going to be ok if i have a complete meltdown??
and do you remember the last time we were together, she was sick? and she called me to make sure i was ok!?

OMG Holly that womans needs a kick in the behind can I please have her address I need to take out a ton of anger. Hopefully she won't pull anything that you would need proof. Pics would have been hard. we used a disposiable camera for nana's and when the deposit came back fine we threw out the camera.
Let Jennifer hug you for all of us.
Hang in there and remember bubba will understand after a while that you will have these days.

Uh, yeah. You were meeting about an hour before I even got up today. Remember, not a morning person! LOL

I hope y'all had fun, we should do a big New England get together one day though.
DH took me out in the mini instead, it's smooth as buttah with the new carburetors on it.

I'll be in Ohio next summer with Lilo and Stitch but you'll be in Disney, the nerve of you. :snooty:

Did you know my kids are planning on being at WDW with you??

PrincessNancy96
08-01-2009, 01:23 PM
LOL!!! :) I didn't think Lilo would be up and running since I don't have photos..but I was worried your DH and I were going to have to have words!!!!

If I had only known before about the mini-meet in OH I would have changed our plans! DH already requested that time off work too...

The otherside came back from vacation last night.. Oldest has already called here complaining. LOL He also just called back upset that his tire is flat and she told him to deal w/ it.. drive it to town and get it fixed... He decided to call here first.. I told him DO NOT DRIVE THAT CAR.. YOU CAN BEND THE RIM.. WHO TOLD YOU TO DRIVE ON THE FLAT TIRE? I knew... I told him don't listen to her... unfortunately she doesn't know that you'll do more damage.... I told him I would send Dad over to air it up... or even come and they could take the tire into town and get it fixed but that she needed to give him the $$ to pay for it.. She refuses... WHAT? I'm not getting into that issue...but I'm so glad I plan to take care of my kids til they are on their own... (shaking head in disbelief).... Anyway, DH is supposed to come back and get me b/c I'm going to town to buy 2 pkgs of the 4x6-12x12 photo pages that LindaBabe showed us.. I want to try the Disney 2008 book that way.. I have lots of photos I want to print.. and I don't like to crop them or shape them.. I'm sure a wuss! LOL

No worries, I just found out about Mini Meet about a week ago. East meets West was the week after we left your house.

DS13 says Hi!!!

Looks like that blue car in the UK might be sold to a German guy, ergh! The seller is going to call us if it doesn't pan out. Pray the Germans don't get it!

What a snot, I can't believe she wouldn't help him fix the car. Although it's not surprising. Guess he should lay off the attitude on you, since you guys do help and bail him out.

We had a lot of fun. It was so nice to see Holly again and meet Rhonda. We spent a few hours, 2 1/2ish?, at Panera, and then went to ACM too. We each got some stuff to do tie dying and *some* of us got new Cricut carts (I had competitor ads to price match :) ).

I'd love to plan a NE get together. We can do it with or without kids, if we did with kids, there are a couple of great zoos around - Southwick's and Roger Williams. Without kids, we could plan a crop somewhere, or even just a lunch or dinner somewhere.

Lunch would be fun! Crops are good too but it's tougher to socialize that way, plus we would need to find a place big enough to house all of us. I knew I never should have sold the big house!! We had an empty 30 x 32 room over the garage! Drat!

A NE meet would be great. Hopefully somewhere easy for me to get to I91 and 89 are both in my backyard 91 is easier and less traffic. but I can do 89 through boston too (although anything other than Quincy I'll have to convince someone to help look for roads.

thanks ladies. I'm almost starting to feel human after the lack of sleep. Now I need to wrap my brain around tomorrows summer program. I'm teaching stamping to kids at the library and I'm sure I don't have 1/2 of what I need. Whoops kind of snuck up on me. guess I'd better get started on that mess.
