Considering all that has been on my plater recently...
After I posted my blog yesterday, got the mail and went into a rage with the management team for our Home Owners Association.
When we started building our sunroom in June 2008, our HOA was a big part of the plans obviously since it was an addition to our home. I was working with two of the nicest board members and they supported us especially when the contractor walked off with our money.
When the HOA hired a management company to handle the operations of the subdivision for a bit over 2000.00 a month, I met with the rep and explained to her that we were in a litagation situation with the contractor and was told do what you have to do even it it takes a while.
Well, then the house next door sold very unexpectedly and the new owner was a true bitch. The day before she returned to Norway she contacted the HOA and requested they force us into finishing the sunroom. That was Sept 17, 2010. On the 18th I left a message saying we were going to be restarting on the room within the next 60 days and left it at that.
The room started being worked on in mid Oct due to the contractor having problems from his back surgery. The building is finished now except for the painting on the outside( doing that in April) and the inside is presently being painted.
Yesterday I got a letter saying that it needed to be finished now or torn down.. What the frick..... The letter noted that it should have been finished last Sept
So I called a neighbor and asked if I was totally crazy about the room.. called one of the old board members, but of course he was not home.
Finally the lady from the management company contracted me and I told her that the message I left was that the room would be started within 60 days not finished within the 30 like she wrote. Told her that the room was almost finished and that if she had checked my property she would have seen tha.t... So now, before they will leave us alone, the boards on our deck have to be removed, the bricks have to be relocated so they are not "visible" to our bitchy neighbor and I have to call them to tell them. Then she goes on to say, that she and I have conversed about this between Sept and now and we NEVER did. She proceeded to go ahead and tell me that conversation was in her notes but she could not verify the date. So we are being given my the management group to Feb 28 to move the boards and bricks and tell her that the room is finished.
Still fuming, I called my neighbor back and told her about the conversation.
A few hours later the original board member I dealt with called and I told him about the how the management company is treating this. He was nice and when I called her a bitch she said he was thinking another word since he hates dealing with her. He is calling the HOA president and telling him to give us a break since the room is finished and we are arranging for the materials to be hauled off.
I also got my passport and the picture was even worse than i remembered.
All of a sudden when hubby came home, I just felt like I was going to pass out. Waves of nausea, my head throbbing and my body just wondering if I was getting the flu or something. Ended up going upstairs early with the shakes. Got a lot of knitting down though
This morning still feeling ill but hoping that whatever this is it ends soon
