The Perks of Home Ownership

Oh, the joy of going home and seeing a wet spot on our bed. What in the world? Did our perfect lil kitty forget where he goes to use the bathroom? He is such a good cat and has never used anything but his litter! Imagine my delight when I take a sniff and realize it isn't him. Thank God! I wasn't ready to chain him to the bathroom forever. I look up and realize that the drops of water is coming from our ceiling.

NO, NO, NO, NO! This is when you want to go back and get your landlord to fix the problem. Now it's OUR problem. That stinks more than cat pee.

We have to get our roof done. Stupid inspector said that we would get 5 years out of this roof. Yeah, I think he meant 5 months. So, on Saturday we are getting a new roof. I would rather have a new bag.

Buh-bye to the vacation I was trying to convince the hubs to book. It was nice knowing you.

Ugg. Just a few weeks from signing on the dotted line to purchase ours. I'm so nervous! But- the fact that it is YOUR roof and not your landlords roof... is pretty damn cool. Maybe you can have a "raise the roof" party to celebrate when it's all done. I'm totally cereal.
