Can I just say...

...That today did NOT BEGIN WELL????

Oh mama.

So today is inspection day. (i.e. my buyer is going through the building with an inspector for the purposes of verifying that it's not, in fact, a total peice of crap.)

As I'm going out my front door to give the apt keys to the buyer, I hear the inspector begin a rant about the quality of my concrete steps. Ay, we're starting off well, eh? It get's better! As I'm going back into my apartment, I notice a note taped to my door:

Dear Connie,
I don't know what happened but there's water coming into our
kitchen from above and our ceiling has a big crack in it! Can you


Ohhhhhh... boy. I snatched that note off with the quickness and glanced around guiltily.

Why todayyyyyyyyyyyy????

And THEN, the check engine light comes on in my car. I have no clue wtf that is about, but I guess I need to fix it before another potential buyer comes to look at it... grrr...

I think you should get yourself to the local voodoo exorcist immediately.

Oh and take two aspirin as well.

Went to fix roof with LL, inadvertenty stuck finger in wasps' nest, ended up in hospital.


Phoenix, do you KNOW a voodoo doctor? If so I need their cell # NOW.

Hang in there!

Remember that you're not far from your goal - but it may seem like a long way from where you are at the moment.

I'm so sorry that you had such a bad day but tomorrow is just bound to better!

Thanks guys, everything is indeed better today! The buyer (my tenant) said everything is cool, and he's not backing out over a little leak... phew! (He's a really laid-back guy, and very excited about the place so I should have known.)

And I'm gonna nuke that wasps' today!!!

(and make a note to find out if I can get adrenalin syringes over the counter in La Ceiba, haha!)
