Good grief, went out with Ben over the weekend around into the backyard and lo and behold one of the plumber workers apparently stole a huge angel statue that was used for our animal memorial garden >:( I swear it just never ends once it gets started......I also had to call the heat pump people cause our heat pump stays in auxillary heat and is costing a fortune it's quiet enough today to do that business, and i have had to call allstate to complain that I still don't agree with this payment they made on Friday, they will be assigning me a new adjuster but that just delays being able to use any of the little money they did pay out......and i have had to call the police to report the statue which brought up the fact that a couple of months ago someone stole two tanks of gas out of our cars in the carport!! we just figured it was our crazy neighbor but now with the statue being gone I have had it......wonderful guard dog Ben is he doesn't even bark at noises in the yard so we had no clue that people were in/out of our yard all the time apparently.....well had to take a break cause the police called I have a police report now and they will be driving through more often now......the heat pump will be assessed this week and the original repair/installation people will be here tomorrow.....busy busy

Keep the good thoughts coming......

*hugs tight*  When it rains...  >.<


Keeping you in my thoughts...  I'm sure Koko would to, but he can't seem to hold ANY thought for longer than a second or two (he was the star of Leave It at puppy class, two seconds in and he forgot all about the treat in my hand lol!) so he will just send you LOTS of puppy energy to deal with it all!

Thanks guys!!! Tomorrow the tile guy gets to put up the rubber membrane to begin tiling!!! some progress and it looks so much better already....Allstate should be calling tomorrow to with a new person to advise us whether or not there is any recourse for this judgement Friday....The heat pump repair people will be here tomorrow and then wednesday the other heat pump assessors will be here to tell me if the first people were telling the truth after ten years of problems with the heat pump I want someone to validate what has been being done.....and the vanity will arrive this week!! and I will get my contacts this week too.....now all I need to do is get Fidget in to see if she has cancer too, and get monkey back in to recheck him and get Ben in for his oncologist appt. I did call the plumber and told him that I suspect one of his workers stole my statue, the timing was just too close and easy i told him to tell them I would not be angry if they would just set the statue over the fence and bring her home.....and the interesting part the plumber said that he had to hurry off the phone as he was test driving a new car and needed to do the paperwork to buy it, hmmmmmm, do you think he got a bit of a kickback from allstate for saving them some money by lying about our situation on Friday?????? seems a bit too convenient to me......things that make you go hmmmmmmm

Hope it all gets cleared up soon and you can enjoy your new bath.

thanks princi !!

Today I didn't get any tiles but the guy has a job he has to go to on Monday so it has to be done by then at least.....I have requested another adjuster and just answered the survey on how well allstate handled this hahahaha bet they are sorry they get that one....

And get this now I learn that our heat pump is coated in mold - the unit under the house, and it's been pumping mold spores into our home for years!!!! why did the guys that come out never tell me that, they were just here in February !!!! and never told me that, and my health has been suffering I have had respiratory issues and severe fatigue for years that just kept getting worse, now I know why!!!! so on top of everything else the unit needs to be replaced - then, our living room windows are failing since 20 years ago the replacement window went in without the proper support header beam by the installers or rather they didn't put in ANY header beam so the windows have been holding up the wall all this time and now we can't open the windows for fresh air as they will not shut without breaking!!! so a new 12 foot wide by 54" window has to be installed......

Not sure what the universe is trying to tell me but I am listening just not hearing anything but chaching chaching as the money goes out .......

Once it's over, you won't have to worry about such things for years.

Hi Tal

Chin up:) We are cheering you on!!

What a nice window... to be.

 We had a big window in the last place that was an Anderson but it was never installed right and leaked like crazy, and practically fell out if you touched it.

What is a heat pump? We dont need them here its warming up; and we are definately in drought conditions all the weeds are dead already.

When I moved out of Sausalito rental there was a giant wall of black mold on the wall right by the bed... had been there for years.... talk about moist environment. I am surprised no one ever found the mold in your atmosphere, maybe they... too... just wanted the dinero:( grrrrrrr

Well today still no statue return....:((

Tile is going up on the tub walls :))

No return calls that were due on Wednesday from insurance so i have called them wed. and today :)) will call again tomorrow, I have said i would get an attorney if they continue to ignore me......if i could find a local company that would give me homeowners with a rottweiler i would switch.....

May have a bathroom by this time next week

Double vanity arrived yesterday in perfect condition!!! Tanna will assess the mirror when we get things back in the room and let you know if we use it!! It's a beautiful mirror so I am going to try to use it if possible will keep you posted....

The heat pump according to the second opinion has the regular expected amount of mold/mildew should not pose a health issue but might if super sensitive to it.....

Husband ordered a whole house ozone unit designed to kill molds and mildew spores instantly should be here tomorrow and will see how that does :)

Progress, we have progress sorta.....

Ben is exhausted as the gate greeter, door greeter and just wants to sleep in and rest....poor guy.....the cats are ready to pack a hobo pack and hit the road they are so tired of being rounded up every morning for isolation from the main house...

Princi - a heat pump is a heating/cooling unit that replaces a furnace it is more efficient and supposed to save money as opposed to oil or electric furnaces......it does have a "heat strip" which will kick in when the temps go below 32 degrees at which time it jumps into total electric heat until the outside temps rise about 32 - in areas where temps are regularly below 32 and stay there for prolonged periods it loses its efficiency and is not used by those locales as much
