January 16, 2012...

starts my seventh year of blogging!  I started in 2005 and until recently, I posted almost every day for at least six and a half years. I'm nothing if not tenacious!  SO...


Happy Blogiversary to me!!


I'd like to report that the saga relating to the tree falling on our house last August was completely over and done - but it isn't. We have yet to be fully paid by the mortgage company - and the money in question was already paid to us by the insurance company, but we had to forward the check to the mortgage company and then they release the funds as soon as they are certain that the work has been done. At least, that is the way it is supposed to work. They hold the money for months, so that they can get interest from it before they release it back to the mortgagee. I think it is a sin and a shame, especially when they have done several inspections (including two that were termed final,) and they know that all the work is complete. We need to pay our contractors, but they are holding our money, and all correspondence seems to take 10 days or more to filter through their system.  Our mortgage company - which will not be named here until we have received the final payment - can expect to be reported to the proper state authorities when it is over. Sheeesh. 

I'd also like to report that my cold/virus/sinus infection is done - but no - that is hanging on too despite the Z-pack I took. I do feel better, but I'm not out of the woods yet, darn it all.

Happy Blogiversary Judy. That is an amazing accomplishment. To post ever day is one thing. To be interesting each time is what makes you special.
What a bummer about your mortgage co. Go get them lady.
Also, looks like the comment problem has been solved.

You are my blog guru. Thankfully you have led the way through my blog trials and tribulations! Happy Happy Blogiversary to your! I will celebrate my 7th in March. It will actually be my 9th but I deleted my first blog. Wish you were able to celebrate a more cheerful Blogiversary story. Thankfully both of our houses are paid for and we don't have to involve a mortgage company with repairs.

Happy, happy Blogiversary :)

I hate the red tape and greed of mortgage companies!

Glad you are over the hump of your cold/flu. Mine did the same thing, thought I was rid of it but it kept trying to come back. Keep taking your vits & such, you will kick it in the behind :)

HAPPY HAPPY BLOGAVVERSARY, My Dear Judy....I have been reading you from 'the get go', as they say...Well, at least since October. 2005! I love that we are both STILL Blogging, though I do not post as often as you, my dear...but...I'm Still Here...And I am SOOOO Glad That You Are Too...!!

Whatever these Virus/Flu/Infections are this year---they seem to linger and linger and linger some more...!!!
I hope it will go away---FINALLY--cause I know what a drag these things can be....!

As to that Mortgage Company---They really SUCK!!! And I know you are right that this way they can earn interest on YOUR money...!!!

Very glad you are starting to feel better - that sounds like a nasty virus! I hope your money gets released soon so those contractors can be paid. I feel sorry for them having to wait for money in the current financial climate. These big companies are criminal at times!

A belated Happy Blogiversary wish to you!

Good that you enjoyed posting daily, but a time commitment I was less inclined to make, especially after taming my initial computer addiction.

That's ridiculous about your mortgage co. and the tree.

I'm coping with some weird, probably viral-type hanger-on type symptoms, but have managed to avoid the sinus infection so far. Have battled with it all before so can really empathize with you.
Hope you're completely over it all soonest.

This is so maddening. I hope you do report them ultimately not that it will probably do much good. That's the cynic talking.

You started your 7th year as I started my 55th year of being on planet earth! Happy anniversary to you and happy belated birthday to me :)
