*Tapes eyelids open*

      Comments Off on *Tapes eyelids open*

I’m fighting to stay awake. Literally. At this point I’m even considering taping my eyelids open. (Hense the title. lol) That is the only reason I am posting this now – to stay awake. (I apologize if this makes little to no sense.) Elliott Richard is anti-nap today and Rob is really struggling. So I need to stay awake. Here’s the run down of Day…what is it now, 33?

I slept horribly last night. Elliott did not want to go to sleep last night. Then when he finally fell asleep at 10pm (2 hrs past his bed time) he didn’t want to stay asleep. I was up with him every 10 minutes for about an hour before I cried uncle. Rob then brought Elliott to bed and the only way Elliott could find to be comfortable was with this head on my butt/hips. I woke up at about 3am in excruciating pain from sleeping in a contorted position. I tried to shift positions and get more comfortable. No luck.

So I woke up this morning with a migraine from lack of sleep and a horrible backache from sleeping funky. I killed the migraine with my medications. I can’t seem to get rid of the backache for anything.

Then I spent the morning taking picutres and uploading them and whatnot. Which was a pain in the butt because my digital camera and laptop seem to be upset with each other. So that’s been a struggle in and of itself. As soon as I’m finished and everything is all organized I’ll post a bunch of picture posts/blogs.

The insurance company called. They are claiming that we should have had someone out here and had “The Leak” fixed within 3 days. If they come out and find mold, mildew, rotting etc. they won’t pay for anything. She wanted to know why when we found the issue we didn’t have it fixed on the spot rather than playing phone tag with our insurance agent. I would like to strangle this woman. Maybe because we aren’t made of money? (Gasp!) Or because we thought this is exactly the type of situation that we’ve been paying for home owners for? (The nerve!) Or because we thought home owner’s would cover it, we wanted to make sure we did things “the right way”? (How dare we!) Maybe we waiting because we didn’t know what the heck to do? (Can you imagine?) Ooooo…I’m just so irritated right now. (I’d be angrier if I could stay awake and keep my eyes open. lol)

As much as I like our insurance agent, I hate State Farm’s claims adjusters. It almost feels like when they look for claims adjusters, they advertise looking for the rudest, meanest people with the world’s shortest tempers. (Nice, compassionate people need not apply.) I have yet to have a kind claims adjuster while dealing with State Farm.

Okay, now I’m so exhausted my eyes burn. Rob is on the phone with Uncle Rick and pacing. Oh to have a nap…*sigh*
