I am looking for a light at the end of my tunnel.

I can't find it.

It has been the weekend from hell.

We were lambasted at church on Sunday by a neighbor whom I normally get along with very well. She brought up each and every thing we have done or they think we have done in the 4 years we have lived there. It was unpleasant to say the least. Many people in church saw it happen, which is rather embarrassing, and we got told by a member of the bishopric that it wasn't appropriate for church. Boy, we knew that!

The whole thing was precipitated by the fence we put up in the their request. She just didn't like the type of fence we got. Which was dictated by our current financial situation. Yes, it's ugly, but it does the job for now. Goodness knows, since we share the property line, she could put up a fence she likes...

That whole incident just ruined our Sunday. In fact, I was so upset by it that I had to leave church so as not to cry in front of EVERYONE. (something I hate doing)

Because I was so upset by it, I was in a nasty mood the rest of the day, and consequently rude to my husband and The Small One. Not an excellent plan all around.

Today? Today, I have a migraine. From the stress, no doubt.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. In the present circumstances it just seems like nothing has gone in your favor. I just keep telling myself something HAS to go right soon or I'm not gunna make it.

As for your neighbor, I think you should tell her if she wants a pretty fence then she better shell out the cash to get one. If you share a property line, isn't she responsible for half the bill???

I agree with Kaytee. I hate confrontation with people, though. I can't believe they had the audacity to confront you at church. That sucks.

My gosh, Tara, I still can't believe she unloaded on you at church! And it stinks that the bishopric dude talked to you about it. Did he talk to her, too, at least?! :(

Love to you, hon. ::hugs::

Oooo, Tara, that sounds ugly, ugly-- I'm sooooooooo sorry! Wow, wow, wow! I hope things are better and I hope your neighbor feels properly mortified and ashamed of herself and some point in the future. Good grief!
