Happy 3rd!!!

A while weekend of holiday "happy" wishes!

Let me say now, as I've probably said before, the casino is not a nice place. It would be absolutely beautiful if I could be a winner at least once. I mean a big winner. I want to know what it feels like to have that machine light up, and an attendant get called to give me my money. Now most of you could say that this rarely happens, but it happens to the wife quite a bit. Hmphhhh! We had a good time though. It's something to do indoors when the heat is so stifling outside, that you can't breathe.

Tonight we will go out on the lake again for fireworks. The best thing about living in a small town is that you can see the fireworks in the small towns surrounding you, AND you get a different show every night! I love fireworks!

We were lucky to have the in-laws stay over, because guess what?? They smelled gas, just like our friends did a few nights ago... and GUESS what?? The gas leak was confirmed. SO... lets go over this in bullets:

*House was struck by lightening the day we closed on it.
*We had to replace all three a/c units.
*The electrical wiring had to be redone and all outlets had to be replaced.
*When we get a heavy rain, water pours through our huge picture windows in the great room, giving a "beautiful" waterfall effect.
*Two of our chimneys weren't built right and are now collapsing.
*We need a new roof.
*We've had workers in the house for the full four months we've lived here, and have only been without them for one full week.
*Gas leak

I swear this house is cursed. It's going to suck itself  up like the house in Poltergeist. On the bright side, we have a beautiful lake to look at... and the home itself is beautiful.

OMG! I can't believe all the things that have happened with your house!

My goodness! Your house sounds like a challenge! I'm sure once you work out the issues it will be worth it though. It's such a beautiful house on that amazing lake!

Also, I would be more than happy to make some of those sensory items for you! Do you have any specific patterns or requirements? I'm sure I can throw together a prototype or two in the next few months if you'd like to see some samples. :)
