Aww!! Thanks everyone. I knew I came to the right place!!

The plumbers should be finishing today by noon. I have no idea when they will patch the holes. I'm hoping today also, but somehow I doubt it!!

Hey any groupies live near High Point NC? If so can you tell me what it is like there? My DH got laid off on Friday and he may send a resume to a company there.

Good news? HOA needs to fix this problem. Bad news? All of the closets need to be emptied and furniture moved out of the way. The HOA is installing all new copper plumbing in the walls.

I know I should be appreciative that the HOA is covering all of this maintenance, but right now, I'm staring at an un-decorated Christmas tree and it's depressing me. I'm also looking at some of my few decorations that I got to put out and thinking I should just box them up too. I mean, what's the point? Is Christmas seriously only a week away?

Not to mention that our life is in little piles everywhere. What would happen if you had to empty all of your closets? Would you have somewhere to put that stuff? I'll tell you, I don't. It's just in piles. Everywhere. We have to go outside and turn the water back on every time we want to go to the bathroom!

OK. I know I'm whining. I'm done. Sorry. Pity-fest much? I'm pathetic.
I am so sorry. These things can be so disruptive - and at Christmas no less. So, since it is Christmas, I think it is valid to ask what Jesus, since it is His birthday, would want you to do. Methinks He would say, decorate the tree. Give thanks for the opportunity to turn the water on and off again and then on again. And He would want you to dance around the piles. Put some Christmas Carols on and bask in the ambience of the moment. Good luck and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

We live about 30 mins from there. It is a small community, a lot like my hometown of Burlington. HP is def. growing though, as the furniture industry is its biggest income maker. People are friendly there. Its close to Greensboro which has a lot of shopping and restaurant choices. Winston Salem is close, Charlotte roughly 1 hr south, Raleigh 1 hr 30 mins east., which sometime the flyers are in town to play the Hurricanes in Raleigh. Our newest groupie, sechem32 works in HP so she would be a good source of info.

Personally, Muushka and jimmytammy would love to have yall close by

Love how you made the Flyers reference! That actually is a big plus. We want to live close to where we can go to games. Thanks for all the info. I heard that it is really nice there. DH's current (or soon to be ex) boss has a good friend that lives there and works at the company DH will be sending the resume to. He has said some really good things about the area. The best thing would be not to have to make the move but we will do what we have to and if we end up in a warmer climate and somewhere nice that will be okay. At least it would be half way between Pa and Disney! And maybe if we end up there we can all have our own little meet sometime! Thanks JT!!!!

Another plus about HP, roughly 2.5 hrs from Mountains, which we have some halfway decent skiing if you like, and 3.5 hrs from the closest beach. And about 9.5-10 hrs. to WDW. I vote for a move to NC

Greetings groupies! All is well in WDW. We didn't get "the" room but did get a corner room. Even numbered & noisy on the balcony. Oh well you can't have everything. I should be able to get some pics up tomorrow. This will have to do for now.
