bad day

I'm in such a bad mood today. I feel utterly exhausted! Work has been stressful because I have all these "little" things outside of my normal job that keep coming up and I feel like I can't keep my head above water.

I also received a "certified" letter that Kim signed for and forgot to tell me about. When she remembered the next day and I got it, it was a letter from the county saying that my house was going to be sold to collect overdue property tax if I didn't bring them $4000 by the 27th. This is last years property tax that was taken care of at the closing and has been paid to the mortgage company. Also, Mark and I have been paying $400 a month in escrow. So I was obviously a little surprised. Especially considering that this certified letter was my final notice and the first I had heard of all this. I called the mortgage company and it turns out they were sending money to the county but they had the wrong parcel number for my house! So they say they will look into it and call me back sometime this week. Arrrgggghhhhh!

Marks in Russia for another week which makes things harder at home. The dog has thrown up in the middle of the night for 3 nights in a row now, Kim ate all my ice cream, Malachy is in one of his moods and I miss Mark!

Aggghhhhh....Sorry to complain so much. I was hoping it would help to vent a little.

I'm SO sorry that your stressed!! That totally stinks and is no fun. I hate dealing with house crap, I have some of that going on over here too... nothing like yours but it does have to deal with the mortgage.

Anywhooddle, this week seems crazy busy for you, so don't worry about hanging out until things calm down. I've got nothing really going on so whenever you get a chance just call me!!

Crystal, if your reading this too, I know that tomorrow really isn't good for your either, so maybe next week, or the week after that??? Just let me know!

Miss you guys!!

I can TOTALLY hang out at 8:30!! I would LOVE too Sara!!!

Steph I'm sorry about your really bad day. Hopefully if we go out tomorrow it will be just what you need. You can vent all night long if you want! It's really good to just get it out so it doesn't just fester and mold on the inside.

I'm up at 2 am right now because I feel really gross and bloated and depressed that I'm so fat. I'm going to go to bed and pray now because I always feel better when I spend time chatting to the Father.

Love ya!
