A not so great start to 2008...

It would be nice to catch a break somewhere. I was laying in bed this afternoon, getting ready to take my daily afternoon nap, and I look up and this is what I saw. The picture to the left is of the tray ceiling in my bedroom, to the right is above a window in Matthew's office. Rooms which are not close together.


Yes we've had a shit ton of rain lately, but seriously, this house is less than 2 years old, and in the almost 8 months that we've lived here we've had two leaky toilets, problems with the septic tank, and now a leaky roof. Apparently I could have done a better roofing job. And you know what's more convenient? The house was under warranty until Dec. 2007. So, I assume on Monday I'll be expected to write yet another check for something in which we cannot afford. This might be a good time to get my online shopping addiction under control before the roof literally caves in.

That stinks! Our home warranty expired Dec. 28, and last week I found a pool of water in our basement...toilet leak. It always works out this way.

Oh, that sucks, B! I understand where you are coming from. The inspector told us our house was SOO well built. HA. Tell that to all the cracks, peeling paint, and nails that keep popping out. Hmm.

That sucks, my house is also 2 years old and we recently had the second story washer overflow and it spilled through a large part of our first story. Bad news. But it dried! Hope yours is not too bad. Can I add you to my blogroll? Mine is
