The Good - the Bad - the Ugly

 

Yesterday was one of THOSE days........... follow my bouncing ball.........

Remember the pay equity thing I applied for?? I heard first thing yesterday morning that I qualified!!  It isn't gonna make me a millionaire by any stretch of the imagination... BUT it is going to allow us to do a couple of improvements on the trailer in the country and that makes me VERY happy!!!

Then - between you and me - I have been stressing over getting gas accounts and electric accounts set up for the new house.  GAH!!  All public offices are closed due to the pandemic.  I got on the ball yesterday and managed with very few glitches to get the electricity and gas set up for the new house!!  YAY!  check those two off my 'to do' list.

ok so I'm on a roll right?

Well I went down to the basement to the freezer to discover that we were under 3 inches of water again....... STILL!!  so I called the new owner's agent... only to get the same run around ..... le sigh.  I was pissed!  I'm so over this rude agent who won't cut us any slack BUT cuts herself all sorts of slack!!  SO I called the Property Standards board again!  had to leave a message cause offices closed due to pandemic!  BUT shock !  shock!  I got a call just after lunch from an inspector who asked if he could come by and evaluate the water situation.  YES! YES! YES!   Two inspectors came!  TWO!  they disappeared down into 'our swimming pool' .  They reappeared a short time later to announce "you have a bigger problem than a flooded basement".  I had been saying that the water is coming up through a 'trough' that runs down the middle of the basement...... and that's new. AND Sir Steve has always maintained that it isn't a water problem but a foundation problem.  They told me that the front half of the house is sinking!  (that would be from that trough which I think now - is a BIG crack in the floor of the basement / foundation)  They are going to file a report with the city.... the city will file a report with the new owner - basically telling him what needs to be fixed!  so me thinks a sump pump is not going to be the major repair to be done... and according to what we know - once the owner is notified he will have 30 days to file for work permits and get the work started!  We probably won't be here (mind you according to the inspectors it's a good thing we're moving!) BUT I'll know I have been vindicated for all the rudeness and ignorance I have had to deal with!!!

Then I had a friend contact me on FB... sending me a screen shot of what the lil one's grandmother was announcing to the world....... about us!  Apparently it is all our fault that she couldn't go to a memorial mass for her mother!!  ALL our fault - cause they do NOT have covid but "people think they are the health unit and have labelled them as having covid when all they had was a sinus infection" OK I blew.......... I admit it I absolutely blew!!!  sent the mother a scathing message reminding her we never once said anything about them having covid!  never once said they shouldn't go out that they had to isolate !  that the only person we EVER talked about was the lil one!!!  As soon as I sent it I realized it was useless - they never hear the truth.... never take responsibility... WHATEVER!!  I'm just so over them ya know???   

Anyway........ that was my yesterday .......... here's to a quieter more stable day today.

  1. I like your good. Extra money never hurts. Sorry about the bad but thankfully it's not really your problem and you can walk away - fast in case the house falls in. As for the ugly - that stinks. Sadly you can't walk away but you can try like hell to ignore it. Good luck with that.

    1. yup - we're walking away fast from here.... and thankful we didn't actually buy it (it was offered to us first)

      as for the ugly - I'm (we're) saddled with them for life I guess - le sigh - maybe it will improve when the lil one is older

  2. Hi Morningstar, I love the meme! Wow, what a day you had! Yay on the good. It's so good you were able to get the inspectors. Wow, it is definitely such a good thing you are moving and that you didn't buy the place.

    As for the ugly, I'm so sorry you are having to deal with that kind of petty ugly nonsense. On the plus side (not that there really is one to this), they didn't go to the funeral after all.

    Hugs

    1. You know Roz at this point I didn't even think about the fact they didn't go to the mass and all the people who could have been infected... I just get so angry when they bad mouth us.....

      I can't wait till Sir Steve tells them they have to test the lil one on Sunday before she goes back to school..... cause they probably don't realize I had notified the school she had covid.

  3. Morningstar, the only thing is the day between each day needs to be a super relaxing one! I feel for you regarding your lil one and having others say things about you guys that isn't true. You are right, some people do not hear the truth, simply because they do not want to.

  4. Oh gosh Morningstar.

    The ups and downs in your world. I am so glad you are vindicated, but so sorry for the other stuff.

    I can't wait for all the good things to happen for you in the next few months!

    1. I was standing outside today freezing my a** off and thinking "life is never gonna be quiet ever again" and wondering what I did to deserve such stress......... le sigh

  5. Sounds like you found a new place just in time. And your landlord is going to experience some well deserved Karma. :) Love and agree with the Panda thought. I need that day too.

    Glad you are leaving your house with the indoor swimming pool :)

  7. You really are having a time of it, aren't you? It's gotta get better soon and calm down.
    This year has just started and I'm already looking forward to the end of it... and I don't like to wish time away normally. But ugh!! Woke up yesterday to frozen pipes, 72 angry chickens, 2 sad goats because it was hours before I could get water to them. Same thing again today with a new twist... Someone (one of two kids) for some reason, turned the heat down to 10 freakin' degrees! Mother Nature has turned the heat off completely.

  8. It's certainly clear why the little one's mother is the inept mess she is - she didn't lick it off the ground as they say!
