Remember when I asked your opinion about posting a sign to keep solicitors away? We finally did get a sign and attached it to the window by the front door. The outcome? Wouldn't you know it. Honestly since that time NO ONE trying to sell something or solicit something has come to the door (at least through the hours of 9:30 a.m to 6 p.m. when I'm working). So not sure if it is effective, but its posted. Time will tell.
Remember the post about the sewer bill from our previous home in San Diego? Something that I was trying to resolve close to a year after the property was no longer ours? I have to give hubby credit. When he decided to pursue it, he went after it diligently. He called literally every day and explained the situation, tried to get resolution. He finally connected with one of the people I had originally talked to who had moved up to management over time. He got her personal number there at the company and called her daily. This happened pretty much daily through the month of August. She told him that the system was undergoing a change that month, but she was working on getting things cleared up and called him to let him know that the account had been closed. They bill bimonthly. We should have gotten a bill in October. Guess what? No bill!! And so far no bill in December. Due to his diligence (and kindness in doing so because he is an incredibly kind person, more so that me, I'm more generous, but he's more kind) this was resolved.
So now the burning question I just have to ask......
You knew there would be a question, didn't you?
Are you done Christmas shopping?
Or are you dreading it?
For us, we are only buying for the wee ones this year. I'm 50% done. Just need about 1-2 hours to wrap it all up.
And you'll be proud of me. I have a Christmas tree up and decorated and a strand of lights outside shining as we speak. A few other decorations and that's about it.
I'm actually doing okay with the fact that Christmas is a mere 17 days away. I'm not panicking or in despair.
Life is good
