No neighbor update/news yet. We keep expecting to see, sometime this week, his construction machines delivered. My guess is it would be today or tomorrow, since they said 10 days last Monday. Our guess, is once he finds out and is mad, he's going to take a group of trees down just out of spite. I can't even remember how it came up, but the very first time we talked with them (like last October), when they told us they were buying the lots, the guy was trying to be all friendly. DH didn't bring it up at all, but the guy said something or asked something and dh said well, my only hope is that you leave this group of trees out here. There is a nice group of fully grown fir and pine trees on their property, out front, next to the street, kind of filling up that corner of their property. He was like "oh, of course". So, I'm sure those will be coming down now, ha!
We get to be down to 85 degrees today and low 80's the next few days. Yay! LOL. I am not much of a really hot weather person.
About once a week, whichever caregiver is doing the after dinner visit, they sometimes don't make it before 6:30, so mom's medicine dispenser will chime at 6:30 that it's time to dispense the pills. The odd part is that before I hired them, almost every single night it would chime and mom would think it was the telephone ringing and call me to see if I called. Then they have been coming for 2 months now and there have only been a handful of times they didn't get there before the chiming went off...and each time mom now knew it was the dispenser and not her phone! But, last night they didn't show up and she did think it was her phone. So strange how the brain just goes back and forth with sometimes knowing and sometimes not. It's been 2 months now and still no billing from the caregiver. A month ago I already asked her about the billing and she said she hadn't done her billing for the month yet. I asked how she sends it, email? and she said yes, she can email it, so I texted her my email address. And now another month of service and no billing. How does she pay her assistant if she doesn't do billing regularly? LOL. I don't know if I should ask again or what. It's the accountant in me that likes regular bills and to get things paid, haha. I don't like bills and unknown amounts just hanging over my head. I guess I'll wait until after the first of September and if she still hasn't sent anything I'll ask again.
Dh has thanked me several times for sending the email to the neighbors and getting everyone together to fight this covenant issue. We are both impressed (and a bit surprised) how quickly and how much the other neighbors stepped up. Honestly, it seems like they were more upset by the prospect of what he wants to build there than we were. Mr talked with the county attorney again yesterday and he said he will do everything he can to help us with this. What that probably actually means is that he will get on the other county employees/depts, who may end up involved, to make sure they just aren't ignoring dealing with the problem....which is what they all do, as much as they can get away with. None of these county employees/commissioners do much of anything at all, unless it directly affects them, a relative, or a good friend. Shoot - our elected sheriff is only required to work like one day a month! Ya, that really gets things resolved (rolling eyes).
