It's been a while since my last post. We did find a new place, a two bedroom apartment in Parma. Parma is a nicer part of the city and the complex is huge. We're up on the seventh floor whichisn't bad since there is an elevator.
But we did get outselves established in our new place and are enjoying it very much. There are annoying neighbors but who doesn't have those? But, all in all we are happier here. Everything is near by, within walking distance with the exception of a couple of places.
We did have some problems with the car. JR got stuck in a snow drift in an a parking lot that was supposed to be plowed. When he got me to help we caught the plow truck and asked him to help us out. He absolutely refused! So, we somehow had to get ourselves out. JR remembered Dad still had me on a roadside assistance program so I was able to call for a tow. Unfortunatley, it was after the engine completely locked up despite the antifreeze. After we were freed of our snowy trap we took the car to the mechanic to get the engine and the starter changed out entirely. A few other things were taken care of on the car too so I was happy about that. We are talking to a lawyer though, since the plow driver decided it wasn't part of his job description to help someone out of a snow drift that he was supposed to plow. It wasn't our fault the engine locked up, it wouldn't have happened had the plow driver done his job. We nearly lost the car because we couldn't pay for the repairs after two weeks. The mechanic legally had the right to claim the car as payment for the $2200 engine. Luckily, Dad helped once again. Since we are suing for the car we adding damages to it too. Since we had to take the bus and walk everywhere in the winter weather Samual caught bronchitis and spreading it to me and JR. JR's back was seizing up because of the not so comfortable bus rides. Samual was scared to death of the busses because he couldn't sit in his stroller. We had to break it down and I had to hold Samual while trying not to get trown off my seat with the insane bus driver at the wheel. We would not have gone through all this BS if not for the plow driver DOING HIS JOB!!! Anyway, we do have the car back and now are moving forward to get this taken care of.
I've taken the time to dye my hair red. It has been awhile since I've been a red head and I like it. There is still quite a bit of black left but it's clear that my hear is red.
difficult is for lack of a better term
Samual's on a hunger strike
This is getting serious.
