I really feel for you Susan. Our flood was 2 months ago now, and we still have contractors, delivery people, insurance people all saying they will come by at certain times or call with information and never do. I am really hoping this will all be done in the next couple of weeks.

Sears here has usually been pretty good, though I do remember our stove was supposed to take two days to arrive and we got it a month later, 2 days before I was cooking a Christmas dinner!

Make sure when you talk to them tomorrow that you really make them pin down a time and call YOU Sunday morning to confirm that they are coming

After our fire, we had deliveries from Habitat and they were so good. They rang a few days before to remind us and then the driver rang when he was about half an hour away so you were ready.

More of a frustration than vent. I get so frustrated with websites that use Adobe flash player in different versions. For instance one site uses Flash player 10 , another site uses version 8 . I can't view videos that uses 8 because I have 10 installed , those version 8 videos just will not play. I have tried switching versions by uninstalling 10 and putting 8 on but I still could not view the videos.
Even tho I can't hear what is being said I can sometimes follow the procedure. The videos are cooking and baking ones.

This time I am venting. Hubby wants to let Tuxie loose in the house, it is too soon !
I have Tuxie in the dog pen , which is in the dining area so the cats can get used to each other . So far, the 5 resident cats have not hissed or swiped at Tuxie and Tuxie has not either but then the cats don't get close enough , nose to nose anyway. The resident cats either sit about 10 feet away or just ignore Tuxie. For once I wish hubby would go to sleep like he usually does and just leave things to me !

OOOH, venting...I like this thread ;)

You know what really gets me going? When some jerk at a four way stop doesn't have the patience to wait till I have cleared the intersection before entering it. What if he gets the timing off? Or I have to slam on the breaks because some kid is walking by? It seems pretty simple to me but this happens to me all the time, happened today and it was really really close.

I am a nanny I always have Julia with me ( an adorable three year old). Don't they have any idea what they are risking? Morons.

I will join you in that vent - not only with junctions but general the quality of driving is poor - people only thinking of their "need" and not considering other road users.

Stacy, I know you and I know how big your heart is..You can and will do it as much as it hurts, because it would hurt you more not to...If prayer helps, then know I'm sending it as I've been doing only I'll double my efforts for him, you and the family and that he may have some freedom from any pain and some peace of mind.
