Yes, I am alive!

So let me just tell you, I have been one busy gal. We moved into our house Monday April 6th, and it has been non-stop adventure! I will list the things that have gone wrong so far, first; no weather stripping on the back door and our dishwasher did not work. Ya, they came and took care of both of those quickly. Our master bathroom shower doors were missing when we moved in as well. It is a little unnerving when you sign for a new house, and it is not even finished yet. Well, that was taken care of within a few days. So yay, I think I can finally start making myself feel at home.......... NOT.......... then come the big problems. I came home from shopping on Friday and walked into my basement to find water. Lance was not home, so I called my father-in-law. He come over and was nice enough to help me clean it up, and said the sewer probably backed up, how lovely. Lance made some phone calls Saturday morning and a plumber came and I guess fixed the problem.( knock on wood). So then a couple days later it rains and rains and rains. Lance decided to check the basement, oh now we had water coming in from the window. It actually looked like it was coming right through the foundation. AWESOME! Our basement is the lowest point, so their was a nice little pond Lance got to take care of. He dug a little trench for all of the water to go into, so that helped it. I guess they still need to landscape, so that is the reasoning behind this. WHATEVER!!! I thought I bought I new house so I would not have to deal with leaks and sewege backups and problems that old houses have. I know it is the joy of being a homeowner, but come on! My house is under warranty for one year, so lets just hope that everything that will go wrong will go wrong within the next year!!!! To top it off it is the end of the semester. I will write more about school later because that's a whole other ten pages of writing. I just wanted to let anyone who reads my lovely blog know that we are good, just stressed. I don't even know if anyone will take the time to read this, but maybe you can give me some comments to boost my spirit:) I will post pictures probably toward the end of the week of my lovely house.
