When it rains

they leak! And it's a brand new house.

French doors leak at the window

Water dripping in and onto the carpet. The wet spot grew even larger than that and has happened many times after.



Water coming in our bedroom window

Water dripping down the tub like a mini waterfall from water coming in the window.



Water stains on the bathroom wall






This is a water stain, it wasn't on the wall when we did the walk through. But was there the day we went to move in. I guess it's not a priority for the builder to fix it. It's going to lose them a sale of a house! We're allergic to mold and I shudder to think what's growing inside the walls.
Can you see the water draining down the sill? (The shiny part in the middle)

Who ever the person was that shared

strep germs with me...beware! I'm looking for you! It's no fun to be so sick you use every last ounce of energy heating up Chef Boy Ardee crap for your kids to eat for lunch. And the chills, I've never felt so cold. Not to mention it feels like I'm swallowing hot shards of broken glass every time I swallow. You are warned! You are on my $hit List!

How tired do you have to be to sleep through your alarm...

going off for 13 minutes?

I'm still so tired. I stayed up until the 3rd tornado watch was called off. The second storm that came through knocked out our cable so I couldn't see where it was and when. But we ran into the powder room when we heard the tornado siren go off. That thing is about 2+ miles away and it sounded like it was in our driveway.

Adding to that I only had 3 1/2 hours the night before after being up for over 24 hours prior I think I just passed right out after K got settled after her 2 am potty run. Which was great, she got up on her own and went back to her sleeping bag and covered herself back up with her security blankets without screaming for an hour after. I had the kids sleep on the floor downstairs in their sleeping bags so I could gather them up easier if we had to take precautions again.

I look like death warmed over.

I was actually looking forward to a good night's sleep last night too. I had to end up staying up late and fighting with our scanner so I could scan the real estate contract and send it to the agent. Never got it to work. So off to some place to fax it later if our ancient fax isn't working.

I took tylenol pm and laid down. When I finally felt sleepy I hear C "Mommy! Mommy! I threw up in my bed" Boy did he it was a ton and all over his bed and on the cream colored carpet. Why did I let him have pizza for dinner! Then he threw up 3 times an hour until 2 am. That's when I finally got to sleep. I had to get up at 5:30 to get a shower and get at least J breakfast and lunch done. Did I mention K has been running a fever of 102+ for 3 days now if I don't keep meds in her. Same thing J had last week I guess. She's evil and upstairs screaming at C right now.

I have so much to do today besides the 6 loads of yucky laundry I started at 5:30 when I got up. That doesn't count my normal laundry that needs to be done. We used all the bedding we had and all of the towels minus the one I saved so I could dry off after my shower. I ended up putting him on the floor on a nap mat with rain ponchos under the mat to cover a wide area of the carpet. Now I'm off to try another steam cleaning of the carpet.

All I can say is that when it rains it pours...

if you're the praying type pray that I have strength to make it through and stay sane.
