Need to vent....

I know I have been MIA for some time, but I really need an outlet to vent. I hope you girls dont mind.

We moved in April to our new house and it has been awesome except for the bug issues.  We are trying to get them under control but nothing seems to be working.  Pretty much immeadiately after moving I got an ear infection, my first ever.  I had no idea they were so painful and it sure made me feel bad for my son who had dozens before getting tubes.  Shortly after recovering from that, I got strep throat.  That was miserable, and then last week I bit into a sweettart and broke my tooth.  Apparently I am so stressed, I have been grinding my teeth in my sleep, which lead to the weakened condition of my stupid tooth.  I thought, well at least bad things happen in threes, so maybe I am good for a while.  Then my son gets this nasty looking rash and today we take him to the doc and he has SCABIES!  Gross.  So now we are washing and disinfecting everything in the house, but they said its very likely everyone in the family has already been infected with the mites, but it takes sometimes a month to show symptoms.  Of course daycare said no one else has them, he is the first, so where the hell did he get them?  We have not gone anywhere so I just dont understand. Then I thought maybe its this stupid house and its stupid bug issues.  Oh and did I mention our water heater broke....$1200.  I am so tired of life.

What has been going on for everyone?  Gracey did you get your house yet?  Beth how is the pregnancy?  Have you found out the sexes yet or are you waiting?

That's horrible :(

They say when it rains, it pours and that certainly seems to be the case. Have you bombed the house? That always helps with the spiders here.

I'm sorry things have been horrible.  Things here are about the same...waiting for hubby to come home, work, kids, school.

omg Vanessa. I have missed you so much and wondered how you were. I can't believe you are going through all of this. I'd be pretty upset myself! Did you have the home inspected before hand?

i thought of something else. Depending on if you purchased the house from an actual person vs. foreclosure they are supposed to disclose information like this. I imagine that if it is that bad while you've been living there than they had to of known.
