Is Blogging Better Than Zanax?.......Not Today.......

First off, let me start by saying my Father in law (the 91 year old miracle man) is at home recovery wonderfully.......Thank you all for every prayer, thought and kind comment that was made.....My youngest brother follows up with a new cardiologist today, and will go from there....The mess in the mountains with my parents is still a NASTY MESS!!!! So much emotional damage has been done to my parents, I almost wish the slide would have taken everything away...Because now, they have to see so many things that they worked for damaged or ruining in black mold, mildew and mud.......And so far not much help from the company responsible.......

I think it's safe to say, my stress level is at a all time high....And I deal with stress like I deal with a dirty house....Wide open and full speed ahead.....This week I have decided a few things....1.)If any of your children have gray hair, they shouldn't be allowed to move back home(What's the age limit)...2.) The state of Georgia doesn't grant divorces from your family....3.)If trees fall on your property because of flooding and damns up the creek, and you are left with the choice of going to the county court house for help, or shooting off your foot..........Buy a gun............

Along with both of our parents, we are having stressful issues with our family in other areas also.......................I'M ON EDGE PEOPLE!!!!!!!

On top of everything else, we had three enormous trees fall that had been weakened from the flooding and the rain (To much erosion). Thank God they didn't fall on any ones house or anybody, what they did do was destroy our neighbors new fence......And the roots from three giant white oaks are now resting quietly in the creek bed..........FYI. When this happens, there is no number in the phone book for this problem....You have to go to the court house................I spent an hour and a half jumping through hoops and finally ended up in an office no bigger than my bathroom....Staring directly at Jan and Marsha Brady..............Who looked at me like I was an inconvenience to them and all mankind.....The first young lady was blowing bubbles with her gum when she looked at me a said, "Do you need something"?..After telling my tree story for the tenth time and explaining that the roots were damning up the creek that runs along our property and I was afraid of flooding....All of the sudden little miss homecoming queen raises up her hand in my face and says......."You don't own the creek lady, the county does, Do you understand?"............After my head did a 360 degree turn, and I asked the Lord to forgive me for anything I was about to say............I looked at her and said, " I don't care who owns the creek, I am just here to tell you that it's going to cause major flooding for the people above us, and we cant remove it".....Again, I get the "county owns the creek story".....I'm still trying to be nice......She looks at me and says, "Don't you have a wheel barrel"..........WOW! Guess who's going be employee of the month!...................At that moment, her partner in crime who was sitting beside her filing her nails, looks over at her and said, "What does she need".............I had had enough..........I looked at her and said, " Lady, there is no wall between the two of you and I'm pretty sure that you've heard this entire conversation...I will not be repeating it".........She put down her nail file and said, "Oh, the county wont help you remove anything from that creek, you'll have to use a crane"...........My reply......."Well, I don't know about you....BUT WE DON'T HAVE A CRANE!!!!!......And all I wanted was to let you people know that the creek was damned up so my neighbors wouldn't get flooded......As as far as I'm concerned, I'll be coming back after the next heavy rains for a building permit, to build a boat dock to go with our new lake"...............They took our information......Someone from the county came this morning and took pictures of the trees ..........The next time I go back to the county complex........It will be as a prisoner.......
By the way...I don't have any zanax, so if anyone is doing a fall festival zanax giveaway........SIGN ME UP!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my! That's not a day you're having it's a DAY! As for the two employees of the minute, I'd be finding out the names of their boss and having a little chat with him orher.
Good luck with all this! and don't forget to breathe.

Oh dear, I would rather chew my own arm off than deal with government anything!! But, it sounds like you handled Jan and Marsha (too funny!) pretty good.

I sure hope your year gets better. No one deserves the run of luck you've been dealing with.
I don't have any Xanax, but I DO have some Corona's...........

I would have been completely screaming. You are to be commended for your restraint. I'm still a little embarrassed about a phone interaction with flowers that weren't delivered as a gift for the Christmas centerpiece for friends.

I hope things improve for you soon. The Corona's might not be a bad idea!

Sorry that you had to deal with all of that! You're too sweet to have those kind of headaches :) But I also think your feisty side is great! I want you on my team to fight some battles!! Take care and hugs!

Stopped by to say hi! But YIKES! It doesn't sound like it's raining rose petals and cotton candy over at your place.
I sure hope things swing around for the better and will be praying that they do!!!!
BIG HUGS from me to you.
