Well, Danggitt!!!!!

Well, it quit raining and so this afternoon when the sun came out- Paul and I went to get our Christmas tree. Got a really good deal on one- less than 25$ -so we got a beautiful small but almost perfect Douglas Fir instead of our usual HUGE Frazier or Noble Fir.

Got home- got it up and positioned just right.. went out to get groceries.
Came home- Open the door- Buddy decides to haul arse up the driveway- completely ignoring Paul calling him back. So my darling hubby- who is already at his wit's end with all the other things going hay-wire for us at the moment- had to get his leash and go track him down.

Buddy got sent to his room for a while- then we went into the bedroom- heard it raining again...and looked up to see the ceiling is sopping wet above the bed now.......
The bed is king size and the room holds it and a dresser- with absolutely no room to spare in the room- so no matter WHERE we put the bed- it's going to get wet if that ceiling tile gives way. This is NOT going to end well.

We can't move the bed out- because 1) the ceiling in the hallway is leaking and the bed will get wet going thru there too and 2)- we don't have anything but a candle light in the bedroom and it's dark here already.


I have a headache.... I have a HUGE HEADACHE. We need a vacation....somewhere warm- on a deserted isle somewhere so we don't have to worry about anything........

Maybe we'll hitch a ride with Santa.....

Sounds like it's time to prop up a plastic tent in the bedroom and pretend that you're camping.

Lois- Thanks for the prayer...it seems to have worked.

Terry- I meant for Santa to drop us someplace WARM- not go back to the North Pole....but then again- vacationing with Santa doesn't sound like such a bad idea either!!!!!

Evan-Now there's an idea......but I'm still calling my brother and asking him for another solution......
