I can't recharge my cell phone for last two days. Showing 'server busy'.

I have to make calls from land phone. The problem is I have to dial the numbers taking the numbers from phone book (I don't know anyones no because the numbers are stored with name in cell phone). I lost the habit of dialing numbers and each and every time I am dialing a wrong number.

Have any of you seen the movie the Money Pit? Well I guess the one thing we can be thankful for is that all the problems happening are not costing US anything except frustration! We found another leak from what looks like a nail in the sewage drain from the toilet.

Then we were getting windows redone because the seals were broken and they were letting in cold air and fogging inside. The management pays for those and they were being installed today. But they couldn't do the slider window in the livingroom because the frame is sinking and they couldn't get the old window out. So, another project not finished.

I am doing my best to not get stressed out over this anymore, but if there was a chance we could sell the place (who's going to buy it with walls and floors torn out and windows that don't work properly) we would be outta here fast.

Laurie, I just left you a message asking if you were enjoying your day...

I guess I know the answer now! I hope it's warmed up and the ice and snow are gone!

Yes, Trish I just replied to your message directing you here! LOL!! No, Ice, snow and cold are all still here. I am waiting for DH to come home so I can go for a walk and get out of here! Don't want to try it alone, even with boots and cane!

A person who I am paying to help me loves to sit in judgment and make me cry. I wish I could get him to stop with the criticism.

This is always a hard time of year. I miss my dad and I can't bring my mom home anymore--so I can't keep any of the old traditions anymore. I try to make new ones but it just is not quite the same.

If you are paying this person to help, you need to find someone else. You do NOT need to put up with that.

I lost my mom 8 years ago last week, and I know how you feel. I am praying for you. Maybe you could buy a few bottles of nicely scented hand lotions and when you go to visit your mom, bring some to some of the other people there (and your mom, of course). It won't change the world, but you will make the world a nicer place for a few people, if only for the moment.

And you can always PM me whenever you want. I have a good strong shoulder and a good "listening ear" (so to speak).

Barbara
