I'm not talking about a bad hair day cuz that is going good today but it all started yesterday when the city showed up to start doing some ditching in front of our house to solve a water problem that we don't have. This is the before picture. The other picture is the other side of the driveway and the extra lot we own. You can't see the pink flag there (the right of way) as it is in the middle of those bushes in front of our wood pile.
Mind you we just got these letters hand delivered on Friday so really no chance to fight the city on it. Here you can see them marking how much of our lawn we are going to lose to this "swail" ditch system(about 20 feet). I called the mayor, the street department, the engineering department and our alderperson and got absolutely no where except for getting my blood pressure up and stress level up.
Here's a picture of the park side that they finished yesterday directly across from us. Nice huh? Good news is they are going to go down that side all the way to the end so we will be the last block done.
Bad news is that with all those heavy machinery out there yesterday I found that one of my glass jar full of flowers was knocked off the shelf in my scraproom. I cleaned up the mess last night and thought this morning I would do some scrapping.
I was going to move the glass jars so that no more would fall off due to the vibrations but guess what happened NOW? The shelf came away from the window and EVERYTHING fell off........... so now I have a really bad mess.......glass, flowers all mixed together. I will have to take everything off the shelves and wait for Kevin to put it back up more securely...........probably didn't help that I kept buying pretty glass jars and sorting my flowers, buttons etc..........maybe it was a little my fault? Right now I just know that I got to get out of this house before I start pulling my hair out.....maybe some chocolate and shopping might help???
