It's a pitty party


I know you really don't want to hear about all this but, it just may make you feel better.
Recap of my past three weeks .....
Went up to the old house to turn on all utilities for the home inspection {the buyers want done}
The well pump was froze and cracked.
We had that replaced { a whopping $300}
Turned the water on....
No pressure... we had to get the air outta the lines...
****the frustration is building*****
Ok all set.....the water should be making its way to sinks, tubs and toilets
sloooooowly.....very slowly.. waiting waiting waiting
go upstairs....no water yet....go to basement
flooded... water everywhere
> insert a few swear words < and screams for a mop and rags
Got that cleaned up
Go upstairs.. water is pouring from the ceilings
>more swear words and more frustration<
Cleaned that all up
Go upstairs {2nd story} 
the master bathroom is flooded
>throws hands in air and screams< 
>oh and more swear words even louder<
We got that cleaned up.
Hubby and I are NOT very happy at this point
I call the company that came out and winterized the house
They gave me the run around
I called the realtor to get him on the ball to get this fixed since the house was left in his hands
A lil over 3 weeks later and I am still waiting for them to send someone out to fix the water leaks and damage.
I call them everyday and get the run around, you never speak to the same person each time you call.
Incompitent people and companys tick me off 
{what about honesty, taking responsibility, your reputation, & customer service????}
Also.....
hubby hit a deer {Thank God he is ok and there was not much damage to his truck}
Then his transmission went out on his truck.
The gas line on my car split somehow
{at $4.oo a gallon there were more swear words heard from afar}
mind you we are not a swearing family ** really we are not  **
My desk top has a virus that I just can't think about right now 
My nephew has lukemia so I went to spend the day with him at the hospital 
and it tore my heart out to see all of those children with cancer.
Someone whom I thought was a very dear friend stopped talking to me {that broke my heart!}
Our daughter came home with broken glasses so off to the eye doctor for new glasses.
This week we have a funeral to attend {murder/suicide} a guy we went to school with, we were not very close to him but our daughter is friends with his niece. 
I am on stress over load and have been having a pitty party here.    
Ok Doll so how is reading all of this going to make me feel better you ask......
Just when you think you have problems...you hear someone elses' and yours aren't so bad!
I hope you have a blessed day dear friend

Well you're right you just made me feel a little better, i too am having a bit of a pitty party for myself! But somehow hearing what you are going through does not make me feel so alone. Take care oxox, Diane

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Oh no! that's terrible..When it rains it pours!
I so agree with you on people not doing their jobs..it bugs me too.
I will keep your sweet nephew in my prayers.
Things will get better...they just have to for you..
Hope your day is sweet and big hugs, Elizabeth

Jeanette said...

Oh my! Hope things start looking up for you real soon. And this continued gloomy weather is not helping matters either! Things will be better soon!

Laura said...

Oh my! You have had more than your fair share lately, haven't you?
We're in the well business. If that house was winterized properly, none of this would have happened. I hear ya about standing behind your work. We have our own business. Reputation is everything, in our opinion...
Will keep your nephew in my prayers.
Things will get better. They have to. And sometimes it does help just to get it all out!

Barbara said...

I don't know if you have an attorney friend who might make a phone call to a realtor or the people who winterized your house? but I'd ask them to make the call if I were you 'cause they are giving you the runaround. Do you have a contract for the services performed? I hope you make it through all of this stress alright and I'll be praying for you.

Hugs XX

Id be having a pitty party too and probably putting on about 10 pounds from eating gallons of ice cream! I hope things get fixed up at the house soon and I cant even imagine seeing those little kids at the hospital... Id be bawling! sometimes life is sooo difficult. who knows why.. I had lots of stress the past couple weeks too, but I guess not as much as you. I hate to think of you having a hard time though, I hope things get much better very quickly!!

Amber said...

Oh Dolly!

It'll all pass and make you a stronger (and a bit poorer) person. :) It does always seem to hit at once, which stinks! Just know your friends here are thinking of you with big hearts and big hugs!

xo, Amber

Merci-Notes said...

I wish that you made it all up so as to make some of us feel better.... yes no?

I hope that all comes out even better in the end.

adding you to my prayer list!
Love, Mary

Oh My Dear Dolly,
They say when it rains it pours. I would say that was the case with your days lately. So sorry about all othe issues you have faced. Why do they always come all at once? I can so relate to the water everywhere as this happened to me once when the hot water tank burst. I was home alone, and it is comical now in thinking back how I rolled up my pant legs and waded through water to try and shut off the spraying water going all over the place. LOL Not a happy moment for sure!!

I am sorry about the little boy with cancer. It does really break your heart when a child is sick.
Glad your hubby was not hurt from the deer hit.
Dolly I pray you have better days ahead.
Thank you for stopping by today. It was so special to see you.
Have a great weekend.
Love from Texas, Celestina Marie

Wow Dolly--when it rains it pours (and apparently it pours in your house!) ugh! I'm sorry to hear about ALL of the problems you are having, you are way too sweet to have all those problems ♥ I'm sending up prayers right now for your nephew, poor fella...God's blessings and healing for him and your family. Sounds like you may have gotten all the bad luck for the year all lumped up at once, so now you can relax and celebrate nothing but good for the rest of it!
Hugs, Karen

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Oh Dolly, how terrible. How could all this happen in 3 weeks. Now that is just not fair. :( Makes you wonder sometimes. Do a lot of deep breathing, and be good to yourself. Hopefully, this all will be behind you soon, and brighter days on the horizon. I will say a prayer for your little nephew. Take care!

Hugs,
Debbie

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh my, you have had the most terrible week my friend! Things can only look up form here, I hope you still had insurance on the old homestead! Praying this next week is much much better!

Cathy said...

Dolly,

I'm so sorry to hear you are having such a hard time these days. If it is any consolation, you are not alone.

I wish I could offer you some words to cheer you up, but I've used them on myself and they haven't worked. Just know you are loved and I will add you to my prayers.

xo Cathy

Oh for goodness sakes, I would have a pity party too. Whenever things are really bad I just tell my self well, it's not cancer, but you have that too! thank you for coming by, you deserve to win!!

Oh darlin' I do so feel your frustration ... He always shows us that while some are better off than we are many are much worse off ... but STILL ... you have certainly had a time of it. Now stomp those feet really HARD and yell really loud and tell that devil no matter what he does is is a defeated foe and he might as well move on ...it helps if you shake your fists at him too (honestly you will feel better if you do this) (())

bj said...

O, my darlin' Mrs. Cherry Heart, I am sooo sorry all this has happened to you. I wouldn't be surprised if you invented NEW swear words. My oh my...that is a LOT of stuff going on at one time.
Bless your heart..I do hope things get better for you.
I KNOW you are feeling better with the news that Ole Bin Laden is DEAD.
I am signing up to follow..come back to see me any time. :))

suzeeez said...

Oh .....wow....I feel for you. They say what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I know a person can only take so much and my mouth would have been going off too. "Venting" is a good thing....don't keep it inside. And sharing with this " blog world" is a good thing too. There are alot of listeners out here. I'm just sending a big hug your way. That's all I can do . That and just wish for better days ahead for you.

Big Hug, Sue

Missy said...

Oh my word, I hope yours days have gotten a bit better. when my husband and I were selling out house I don't think our realtor ever visted it either, cuz she was supposed to....Your house situation makes me mad just reading about it, I could image how you feel, eh gads, selling a house is stressful to begin with and then add all that other stuff! So sorry to hear about your nephew, sending love his way! and your classmate, or dear, so sad! Sending happy thoughts.

Lallee said...

Oh Dolly, that is a lion's share of problems all at once. I hope things are better soon.

Please come and visit my new blog, Ric Rac and Polka Dots. Just the cheery music alone might perk you up a bit! I hope so! Hang in there, and please do visit. Let me know how things are going!!

My gosh!, Your life is worse than mine;) I hope everything is better by now, because that was an old post! People say things like, "There's always someone worse off", or "God doesn't give us anything we can't handle." but those things don't really help when we are in the middle of it, and struggling to cope with too much at once. I really wish you peace and I pray that you'll be surrounded by helping hands from friends who actually do something to help, and not just advise.May your faith give you strength and grace! (I blog for my therapy!) Blessings! Linda
