Rebecca and Lisa, have an awesome time! I sure wish I was there too!!!

Holly, good luck with a house full of kids!!!!

Nancy, have fun scrapping with your friend tonight.

It's raining again and will be all day. And, it's Friday. So, I've decided that today will be a "play" day and I'm going to hole up in my scrap room and play with my scrapping stuff! DH is always telling me that I've reverted back to kindergarten because I like to play with scissors, glue, and paper!:rotfl2:

Have a great day everyone!

Mornin'...been up since 5:20am... change in the noise level in the house awake me... good thing...reason being our power was out... no one seems to know why... so I turned the tv on and laid on the couch til time to get kids rattled... I'm definitely taking a nap this morning..

Holls, not NEE.. Suzanne posted on the scrapping board about her son receiving a Make-A-Wish trip. So, I offered to make her some paper piecings to add to her scrapbook from their trip.

I would like to see some rain.. but our dome seems to be over our county again.. Literally, the storms come and than part and miss our county...

Oh, I could cry...We have a water leak in the bathroom going down into our kitchen. Good gravy, what is *this* going to cost us. One of PrincessM's friend's dads is a plumber and he's coming over around 9:00 this morning to look at it (and hopefully fix it, we've had to turn the water off). :sad1: I could cry or throw up.

I have to work today, especially since I know this is going to cost a small fortune. Stupid stuff!

oh thanks Nan. i sent her a pm. i was not sure what to offer. maybe i can do some of those for her. shoot me a pm (when you get a minute!) on which ones you have done and maybe i can make some too!

Jennifer-that's awful. what's up with that?

thanks everyone. i need all the help i can get with all those kids!

DH noticed a "slight" discoloration on the ceiling in the kitchen late last week, but to be honest, it didn't really register with me. Who knows how long it's been there? PrincessM got up first this morning and yelled upstairs that Daddy had to come down! I knew it was a big deal because of her tone of voice, but thought it was a cat (Alley's nearly 12). It's not gushing, but it's dripping from the bathroom into the kitchen. It's got to be a pipe. Who knows what he'll have to rip out to get to it? Urgh, I'm tired (haven't slept well all week), I can't shower, I need a drink and it's only 8:00 am. AND, I have to spend the whole day at work! Why couldn't I have been born rich instead of beautiful?! Or, why did I marry for love instead of money?! Gotta laugh or I'll cry...

Getting ready for the first day of school and all the soccer practices have made things quite busy. Thanks for asking. I finally got a chance to shop for Little Bit's birthday gifts. Have to wrap them before he comes home.

Just want you to know, a day hasn't gone by that I don't think about you and hope you are doing as well as you can. :hug:

It's the bathroom sink. We're going to have to replace the vanity, sink, and probably floor in the bathroom, as well as parts of the kitchen and laundry room sink :( The plumber is fixing the pipe issues, but we'll have to call someone else to do the construction work (my BIL has his own company, but I don't expect *much* of a discount). :sad1:

joyah
08-28-2009, 10:09 AM
Oh Jennifer that's awful. what made it affect some many sinks and stuff? Sounds linke it had to be there a LONG time to make that much of a mess. Makes me glad DH does all that stuff so I only have to supply beer and the pieces he needs

Hang in there you do for an upturn of events.
AWM good to see you again. How'd the jam making go? I'm waiting on apple season for my next attempt

AlexWyattMommy
08-28-2009, 10:12 AM
:hug: I am soo sorry! If we lived closer I would rent my husband out for pizza. He is really good at that stuff. He made our kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities. Made the counter tops in the kitchen to. He's a pretty handy dude to have around. Married for love here too. The Handy Mandy feature is a bonus. :)


Holly, no mine is today. His is Monday. He is in second grade. Early cut off date here. He's one of the oldest in his class.

They won their first game last night. He was pretty excited. He earned some patches for defense and this totally awesome head shot. :)

AWM, have your DH grabbed my DH.. or I'll have my DH grab your DH.... they could tackle it together!

Happy Birthday buttercup!!!!

DS13 has had 2 corner kicked, goal headers and the damn thing keeps hitting the damn top crossbar... but boy are those pretty shots.. even the opposing teams have been talking about his header goal attempts... Some girl this past weekend held him on the ground so he couldn't get to the ball, literally had him stradled.. he came up and yellin' at the referee as he is captain and can discuss things.. and he finally told the girl.. keep your hands off me or else... well, she didn't.. she was trying to take the ball up field... he came took the ball and she cried, cause the boy was mean to her...and her mom yelled that the boys were too rough.. your dd is sitting on my son while he is on the ground and my son takes the ball. give me a break..

Happy Birthday AWM! That's right, it's my sister's b-day too! I better call her. In all the water works, I forgot. :confused3

I called my insurance agent, water damage isn't covered for "maintenance". Ah well, it was worth a try, right?

morgansmom2000
08-28-2009, 10:50 AM
Oh, and I'd gladly rent your DHs for pizza and beer! And, I'd throw in a hotel room too ;)

AlexWyattMommy
08-28-2009, 11:00 AM
Why isn't water damage covered? It is not the same as flood damage that is a separate rider?

Thanks for the well wishes. The 40's don't seem as bad as I thought they would be.

Joyah, the jam & syrup making went well. The syrup with whipped cream on waffles is the new Sunday favorite. I am hoping that I can find some reasonably priced apples to try making sauce. Would you PM me your directions/recipe?

PrincessNancy96
08-28-2009, 11:06 AM
Most insurances won't cover water damage unless it's caused by a fire or tornado..
Ours wouldn't cover it either when our water heater broke... they told us we could pay for an additional rider or take care of regular maintaineance.. WHAT? Like I'm gonna expect my pipes every other day for leaks.. how do your regula maintaneance a copper pipe? cut it open to see if there is gunk inside, weld it back together? poke a hole and see how long it takes to make a mess?

Jennifer
I'll send him on a road trip anything to have him out of my hair for a day or 2 he built out house and did the bulk of the electrical and plumbing. Just let me know course this should mean that I get to come to so I can play with you and Holly while he works. Will a 25' camper fit in your driveway? or where's the closest campground?

AWM will do I'll have to dig it out. cause it has my notes on it and I just rearranged the cookbook cupboards the other day so that could take a bit. Right now I'm trying to install mom's old desktop in the office and my laptop has been kicked to the scrap desk I need a bigger desk or less stuff:scared1:. I've got the futon up here and that takes up a TON of space. I'm thinking it may go to the playroom in the basement when i do it's major cleaning hopefully next week and I'll just put a chair up here with a small something for the laptop. gotta check out the barn for furniture.
off to argue with a computer I hope you have a great bday.

yep makes everyones problems VERY small.

It was a rough visit (in more ways than one)and one I will need to make it there more often. My family doesn't visit graves do flowers and that stuff I was just raised that way. the conditions of the flat stones were pathetic covered in dirt and grass clipping why they don't use baggers I don't know.

Need to pull myself together and go get the potatoes out of the garden before the storms hit. and check on the baby i may need to carry him back into the barn

Oh, so sorry to hear about the leak!!

We had a huge leak back on the 90's, the water pipe burst on the washer...basement was flooded, and all my crafting stuff was ruined, along with books, vcr tapes, ets. We had Nationwide, and they sent an adjuster out, and we got some money for damages...just not for the busted line...THAT we had to replace out of pocket :confused3

morgansmom2000
08-29-2009, 09:22 AM
I'm calling the insurance company directly. I think they will cover some replacement, at least of the ceiling. It's not like I can open the walls and inspect the pipes every freakin' day. The part replacement ($8) and labor ($135) was relatively cheap, it just kills me that he had to punch two holes in the kitchen ceiling to get to it. Ah well, it is what it is, there's nothing I can do about it, and *itching about it doesn't really make me feel any better (okay, it does make me feel a bit better!), so we'll deal.

08-29-2009, 10:43 AM
