Mother Scratching WOE.

So, I live on the edge of Tornado Alley. I also live on the cusp of where three weather systems routinely collide. In other words, we get some weather. Which means due to the four bouts of insanely sized hail (which demolished my husbands brand new vehicle one month after purchase - yay for insurance!) straightline winds gusting to 100 mph, and 110 degree summers, we needed a new roof.

A new roof is going up right now, started last night a 6pm. (I know. Go home! [/Ferris Bueller]) To put on a NEW roof, you have to take off the OLD roof. Which is being systematically tossed down onto my METICULOUS FLOWER BEDS. That only exist on the FRONT of the house. There are three full sides of house they could toss things down onto. But NO. Sally Von Schtupp started barking her head off (a lovely deep threatening bark) and the Mr. ran out in his skivvies (hee) and started barking himself to get them to STOP KILLING MY FLOWERS.

He has since told me to not go outside, and has shut all the curtains/blinds, and that we'll ask the roofer to knock $x off the final price so we can get new plants. *cries* I DON'T WANNA KNOW. *cries bitterly* Well, I totally do, but my jaw in clenched so tight... Waaaaaaaaaah. I'm going to look at the photos I posted the other day, hold my lighter aloft, and play Heart's "What About Love (I only wanna share it with you?)" for maximum affect.

Bwah bwah bwaaaaaaaaaah, L'il Brudder! [whiney joke a handful will - hopefully - get]
