Grievances and an attempt to show you I am not ALL negative

Now it is crunch time for Adam. He has informed me that studying for finals is now a huge priority, which is a very diplomatic way of saying "Don't hand Eli to me when you are tired of him or expect me to do anything besides eat dinner." Understood. It's raining here. Hard. So my couch out on the porch is sopping wet because I was gambling the odds that it would never rain here and, thus, did not obtain a tarp to cover it. It gets better. I had to stand outside in the rain for ten minutes at six am and all but force my dog to go to the bathroom because he is a pansy and hates to get wet. And the best news of all? Insurance sucks. We have had a hole in our roof since the day we moved in (July, mind you.) It's now, let me check, one day shy of December and our home owner's association is still "assessing the problem." Meanwhile, I can hear the water seeping into my walls and clearly see and feel the puddles on my bathroom floors. Idiots. And there is a scathing review of Bank of America brewing in my brain. I will give them one more week before I unleash the power of the blog on them. They won't know what hit them. Just kidding, I know I am not quite queen of the universe yet, but I am still pretty mad at them. Oh, and Mitt Romney didn't do too well in the debate folks. Huckabee seems to be the new rising star, which would be ok with me except that his Arkansas constituency hates him. And you all remember what happened last time we elected an Arkansas governor to be president? I guess as long as the nominee is not Rudy, I will be all right. He is such a faker. He did nothing for New York. The money that came in after 9/11 from every which federal way helped New York. He was incidental.

Everything else rocks. Eli is cool, I have awesome friends who like to watch and play with my kid and even sometimes play with me, it's Christmas time, I am reading an excellent book called The Kite Runner, I have a new pseudo writing job which I am cautiously optimistic will work out, and Adam will soon have one quarter of dental school behind him. Good times.

You may not be queen of the universe yet, but you are queen of the blogging world with your advanced persuasive writing skills! Another point for Mr. Downs. I wish I could be a little more real on my blog, but for various reasons I feel restricted on what I can/should write about. YAY for Adam finishing a semester. I miss ya Ash!!!! Wish I could have seen you when you were in town.

Wow, one semester done! We're not even started with ours yet. :( Soon enough. Before you know it he's going to be graduating and you're going to have 3 kids. Ok, maybe 4. Haha, just kidding. I hate finals. Tell him good luck!

I can't believe he's almost got 1 semester down. Are you guys going to be here for a while this month? Yea.
I'm really sorry about the roof. And about Adam being kind of a nazi study boy. You can't blame him though. He's always been like that. Thanks for loving him anyway though.
