Happy Thursday

It's Thursday! I have been having one incredibly stressful month after the other, mainly with regards to unexpected bills. Here is the circus that has been going on in our home:
1) Our back door started to not shut, and eventually could not lock
2) Thus, we had to have piers put in along the other two sides of our house (as first time homebuyers, we didn't realize the foundation guarantee was only for piers on two sides of the house) $5000
3) When they jacked up the house to make it even, they broke our sewer line in four places, which we did not know
4) The water leaked and leaked and leaked causing our house to sink in the middle causing more cracks so they came to fix it $5000
5) The sewar leaks were fixed, however they had to go through our kitchen floor, which is hardwood so now there are two giant squares coverd with plywood on our floor so we will eventually need to replace the floor $500-$1000
6) We need to replace the door and frame because it still doesn't close $300
7) Dax ate a toy and we had to go to the Emergency Clinic to make sure it wasn't stuck inside of him $500
8) The HVAC guys came to make sure everything was's not. According to them we need about $1000 worth of work
I'm stressed to say the least.

oh my, it seems that the people who did the piers should be at least partly responsible for the sewer line. But as a homeowner, there is always something to repair or replace. Praying for you.

I've had my share of stressful real estate ventures too and the only thing I could tell myself is that no matter what happens, we will get through. Good luck!
