    Did you apply to live at Chatham? It's the low key place. Vista Lay is not.

    So, I believe that a trip to Colorodo, either Denver or Boulder, is being planned for this year. And this is because I am wanting to see the environment and inquire about schooling because, I believe my days here in California are done.

    I'm researching other places as well.
    Remember that saying about same crap different day. Replace day with place and it's still true. I would look for better schools. Looks for state ranks, and then ranks within the state. If I had a child I would be looking at private schools, granted that's not an option for everyone.

    So how did you get it out? Pull the plug on the basement swimming pool?

    Yep, I'd be thinking of leaving too.
    Living in California can be a pain in many ways, but I still love living here.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Evening all,

    We can't make any housing requests yet, but there is a FB group for the people who are coming down on my arrival date, so I'm looking with them. I have 2 prospies: one who seems really cool but already has someone else lined up who may or may not work out, and one whom I feel sorry for (no one wants to room with her either).

    And Chatham seems to be the place all the partiers want to live since it is newer, whereas Vista Way is a) cheaper; and b) seems a bit unpopular. Cheaper sounds pretty darn good at the moment, and I might do Wellness since I'm not a partier.

    I actually wasn't feeling to bad this evening until I got in my car to head home. And then.... the wall hit. Thank goodness I have the next two days off. Of course I have a lot of stuff I need to do that didn't get done since I was doing 12 hour shifts the last 3 days but....
    You should of gone strait to bed after a glass of warm milk. I'm sorry you stayed up late enough to type that.

    I like it. The place, not the systems. I don't dislike the government, it's just way to big, slow, redundant, and undoes most of what it does a few years later.

    Re: RCMC # 132 : We're Zany To The Max! So Just Sit Back And Relax !

    I have a cement basement floor, in about 2/3 the area with a sewer drain in the middle, so a lot of the water eventually does go down the drain. The rest can be swept in that direction. The back of the basement is vinyl tile, and the dry wet vac works fine for that area. My husband said that my tenant, and Jason helped him clean up. Jason lives in the back of the basement. He's Sean's cousin. Although Jason was upstairs in the attic watching the cats and birds while Kathy and Sean were in Florida.

    My basement is totally dry once more. Too much rain, too quickly makes this happen.

    I love the California weather when I visit there to go to Disneyland. Florida's weather was actually quite nice during my 7 day visit. It only rained once, for about an hour.

    Morning all! Actually got to sleep in for the first time since.... since I don't know when.

    Glad the weather was good while you were there Barbara! Thats pretty amazing that it only rained one time!

    Time to go hunt up some breakfast and then figure out what I want to get done today... looks like another WINDY day out... oh.... joy.

    Oh I wouldn't just go anywhere blind. It's not like I"m gonna put a US map on the wall and throw a dart and where it lands, is where we go. Although at this point, I'm VERY tempted to do just that.

    And Private schools are NOT an option. I had him in a private school from pre-K to 1st and it was HORRIFIC....I got threatened a law suit because my kid (who was 6) called another kid a poopy face. The mother was a lawyer and threatened to suit me unless I gave her $70,000. The principal (an egg head) backed it up. It all ended up for nothing when I got my own lawyer and the suing parent got scared that I wasn't just going to hand over $70,000. In the end, my son got kicked out of the school. It was ridiculous. So no private schools ever. I am looking in Charter schools though.

    I understand. It rained so hard that the drain was overwhelmed, not water coming up through the drain or sitting in a basin style basement.


    I watched a interesting video about a whirlpool a little while ago. I can't find the link to repost it here, but it would compliment this post well if I could.

    I'm with Pengy, that was lucky, glad it worked out for you. Running from the rain takes some of the leisure out of a visit.
