Anyway, I'll start with the good news. I'm still alive. Sometimes I do wonder how, there have still been so many ups and downs since Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
I did manage to pick up all of the new Toa. i only paid full price for Kopaka and that was near the start of the year. The others... I got lucky with at Sears. They kept giving me points so I managed to get them all for very cheap. As in around $20 cheap. I haven't picked up any other Lego besides Bionicle... and to be honest Lego just doesn't seem like a good value to me anymore... although I don't really have disposable income anymore.
Splatoon is a lot of fun. Have some decepticon propaganda.
So, now for the bad news.
We still are not back home. We are still dealing with New York Rising and suing the insurance company. Things are going good with the litigation as the insurance company is one of the ones that sent unlicensed engineers, such as the one they sent to us. One of the thing we are trying to get them to pay for is attorney fees, otherwise we loose a huge amount of money to our lawyers. Money that we need to build the house. In the meantime we are continuing to pay for a place we can't live and for the rent here. The rent prices are crazy and we have a cheaper place.
As for this past week, we've been there mowing and weed wacking for 4 days. It isn't as easy as you would think as we have to maneuver around a condemned house that is off of its foundation. The town gave us a notice about them and has been super picky. honestly though it feels kinda shady with how picky he is being, but we have to do it. It was also my first time ever using a lawnmower... it was terrifying. And it sucks doing it to make it so freaking perfect. Not only did we have to rent a lawnmower (keep in mind our original one is still under a house) we had to buy a new weed wacker plus the plastic string they use to cut and that all set us back over $100 so far. ;_;
Hopefully things will look up soon though... I don't think I can take much more of this... especially as we are coming up on the three year anniversary of the storm and we still aren't home. :/
Anyway... I'll try to pop in a little bit more... I've wanted to make a post for ages here but I just haven't really had the time.
