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

Yesterday was fairfly successful in my cleaning up of the office. I threw out a trash and organized a lot of things some still need to be reorganized by date which is minor. It is one of those projects that I can do it when I am totally bored
While I was cleaning I found a great article I printed out but never completely read. it was about thryoids. My doctor always checks my basics, tsh, T3 and T4, reverse T 3 and T 4, thryoxide and another one, but yet we have never tested for T0, T1, T2 which I learned controls more of why the body can't loose weight even with dieting. So when I see the doctor next week, going to ask for those to be done and most likely this could explain more
Still nothing about hubby yet and I am at a point, where I am thinking about calling his boss and asking him to meet me for lunch. Chris tends to give me more details than hubby does.
I got my second challenge project started on the knitters group and knitted more than I expected to yesterday.

This morning has been busy. I went into my disaster of an office to look for the copy of hubby's resume on a cd from 2001. so out come the can, moving the contents of the credenza onto the the dining room table and then cleaning, throwing out papers, putting knitting patterns in plastic holders and into a looseleaf bind, taking the medical EOB's and putting them together so they can go into their folder.
Finally I hit pay dirt and found the CD. I tried it to make sure it worked and it did it. Granted it was written in word from the 97 version and my computer is on the 2007 version, I got it to open but had a hard time saving it. Finally gave up and put it in my dropbox folder.
So now trying to continue the cleaning and organizing, putting all my knitting books that need to be added to my masterlisting in a container for me to deal with, and hopefully I can find my office desk by the end of the day.
as for hubby no news is good news...and hopefully it will stay that way. My stomach is killing me from nerves right now. have to calm down but i can't... So staying business busy doing everything I can so i don't think about the future.

Through all the stress I am going through, my doctors' nurse checked my blood pressure yesterday and it was 126/72 .. the lowest it has been since I started on the new meds last Nov. This is a great thing.
Still not sure why the pain in my upper rib cage and it was suggested that if it gets worse,obviously head to the ER and after hours center for another check. Otherwise will have my primary care doctor check me next week.
Contacted the headhunter my husband used in 2000 who got him a position with the company he is now with and told him the siutation. He wants to talk to hubby and perhaps even meet him for dinner next time hubby is in IN.
So far hubby is just jumping through hoops checking and rechecking all his sites to make sure they are not screwing him more.
He did not get home until 1045 pm last night, had dinner and then bed. so today, I took lunch and dinner to him so that I know he is getting something nutritious in him, especially being a diabetic. Mentioned when I dropped lunch off about the headhunter and he was shocked I was being so pro active at starting a job search before he knows anything either way
So I am trying now to get more ducks in a row and prepare myself and him for all that could happen.

Trying to get my act together right now. I got up early with hubby because I knew this was going to be the beginning of a hard time for him.
I am so tired right now. Trying to put things in my brain in order for the what if's....
Have to go to Home Depot soon to return the can of striper I purchased. it did nothing to take off the varnish on the chair. Then also have to get a refund on some base molding for the sunroom, bu the contractor has not come yet to tell me how much of it he is returning.
definetely going to the doctor's office to get a blood pressure reading. i have been feeling strange since last week. For some reason, I am spending more time in the bathroom. have gone from holding everything in to letting it out several times a day.. Not sure what that is all about..
I dread the idea of the phone ringing.. just in case it is hubby...
i am not calling hubby at all since i know he is writing up his team today and then dealing with other issue..
