"SON OF A MOTHERLESS WHORE GOAT BITCH."


FIRST OF ALL- Thanks to MM/AA for the new swear phrase!!!It fits my mood perfectly!!(And, Luckily I don't live with a precocious 4 year old.)

So now-as Paul Harvey used to say- "Now for the REST of the story........"
******************************
I wrote a blog post yesterday about how I wanted to actually do something fun but being a responsible adult I chose the high road and didn't have the fun.

And, right on cue, an hour later Paul discovered ANOTHER FUCKING LEAK in the roof/ceiling.
Pardon my French but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH- I have reached my LIMIT with problems with this damn place.

My stomach immediately drew up into knots. He can tell me how easy this stupid thing will be to fix all he wants- and I still absolutely cringe at the thought and want to run to the bathroom and puke my guts up when it's mentioned. I HATE this house and CANNOT WAIT to get out of it. It's just one disaster after the other and it NEVER ENDS. It makes me want to rent forever and never own my own home...(Almost).
Oh wait- we RENT this one- and still have to fix the damn things that eff up with it.(In fairness we only pay a token amount plus the utilities bills which is more than fair- but the amount of time and money and aggravation we have invested in this place is astro-effing-nomical for the past 3 years.)

All I dreamed about when I went to bed was the roof leaking and us fixing it. And soon as it was mended and dry- we'd walk into another room and there would be another leak and we'd have to start all over again. And over and over and over. Once I woke up from having fixed 17 (And I am NOT exaggerating )"dream" roof leaks, and looked over at the bedside clock- all that damn mending had only taken up FIVE EFFING MINUTES of dreaming.

I finally gave up and came in here to get away from it all.....into the living room....where the REAL leak is.

God...... just shoot me NOW.

I feel for you. But isn't there a law or something where the landlord has to provide you with a safe place to stay?

If it's been one thing after another, I'd sue his ass. You could at least ask to be reimbursed for the stuff you've fixed--because that after all should be his job. It sounds like the roof needs to be redone (I take it you have shingles??)

PLEASE tell me you didn't have to pay a security deposit?

Reminds me of when I lived with my sister down by the beach...the landlord hired some folks to come re-shingle our apartment. It was like watching the three stooges (one was drunk and almost fell off! ROFL). When they left for the night, did they put out plastic? NOOOOO. They left it bare to the open sky.

That night, it RAINED. We had a swimming pool in the living room. I got two words for ya: HARDWOOD PANELING. )cringe( This was at 2 in the morning. I'm trying to move stuff to the FRONT of the apartment (which still had shingles on it) while my sister is calling the landlord giving him an earful. You can imagine. ;)

Sigh........
Scratch, honey,....if you actually read back in my blog you'd know that we live in my mom & dad's "guesthouse" for a hundred dollars a month plus utilities. We've lived here for...well, I've lived here for over eight years now and my hubby has lived here with me for the six we've been married.
I moved in here so I'd be close to help out my parents when my dad's cancer returned, before he passed away. The plan was to live here til hubby and I got married and he got established in his job and for a couple years after we got married so we could save our money and buy our own place.
But following the general line of the direction my life has always taken- things didn't quite work out that way.
Landlord Laws be damned, I think suing my 74 year old mom would be a bit out of line, don't you think?
I just like to vent on here about the state things have gotten to.
And since we will be moving soon anyway, it's kind of a moot point.
