Not much time to blog... I'm being a responsible homeowner.

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

LOL! I have a Homeowners Association meeting tonight. My neighbor conned me in to serving on the HOA board this year. It's not so bad now. I did it in the past; but we had one of those nightmare board members who was just plain miserable all the time. I've never met anyone quite so negative. Every meeting wound up with him screaming at someone and causing grief. He wound up costing the HOA a lot of money with frivolous law suits. Anyway, suffice it to say that he caused a lot of trouble and nobody wanted to come to meetings or be on the board. I confess, he was the main reason I quit a few years ago. Now that he's gone, it isn't so bad. But tonight it's meeting time and we've got to approve some contracts (landscaping common grounds and some concrete repairs). It's important to get it done. So, off I go!

Spark on my friends! Oh... I got rained out today; but had a VERY active day in the lab so I'm not going to get too bent. I'm going to prep something quick but healthy... way better than grabbing fast food before the meeting. Right? I count that as a success! Catch you later!

    Those meetings can be painful. I'm the president of our landowner's association (for our property at the ranch), and it seems there is one "challenge" after another. I may resign at the end of the current term to finally get a break!

    Meetings like that can be a pain, with the wrong people around. Now that that person is gone, there can be real progress made and you can feel better about things.

Great job making something healthy and not caving to the fast food. emoticon

    I hope the meeting went well and that a lot was accomplished. Glad Sponge Bob Grouchy pants is no longer in the meeting.

Have a great day!

    boards or committees always have one pain in the butt that makes life hard for everyone else. Hope this time it;s an enjoyable experience for you and you get a sense of achievement from the work you put in for your neighbourhood- it can be rewarding!
Good luck.
Happy Hump Day!
