There are many reasons why I want a new house.
Not only do I want more space and I can't stand the loud neighbours to the left of us, but I have been dealing with being on the board of directors with the most unbearable women in my life.
I thought that the THREE hour meeting last night took the cake. Unfortunately it got worse.
Our property manager and I have a very good rapport. I think that she's very knowledgeable and professional. The two other board members don't agree with me. Before our meeting last night the manager and I had an off the record conversation about Yv, who is the biggest pain in the you know where. After the marathon meeting, E, the manager and I commiserated about how frustrated we were since Yv and I (who is new to the board and who is in obvious cahoots with Yv) were so unbearably obnoxious.
Both conversations were in strictest confidence and off the record.
Then I got this e-mail that was carbon copied to ALL of the BOD:
Last night the two of them, Yv and I have nearly killed me [E]. You cannot even imagine of what I went through last night with these two. The third board member, JB, told me in confidence that she is moving, because she cannot stand Yv and now her new partner I.
I almost threw up when I read her e-mail.
I know that I should not have gossiped. I know that I am in the wrong, but I am human and I have many faults. It amazes me that I didn't kick these women out of my house last night since they had no regard for the late hour, nor their disrespectful tone.
And btw, I was also "ousted" as president, which I was more than happy to pass over to Yv.
Mr. JB has wanted me to quit for quite some time. Since Yv joined the BOD she's made a once pleasant job, the biggest chore. What I'm most afraid of is that no one else will want to volunteer to join. Yv's ridiculous behaviour scared away one of our neighbours (who was interested in joining) when he came to a meeting in the fall.
I wish that I didn't care so much. I know that these two ridiculous women are going to spend all of the money that the corporation has without regard to what the residents want.
Have I mentioned that I really want to move? The biggest problem is that all the houses that are for sale in my neighbourhood are $700 000!!!
And don't worry, I haven't forgotten that this is an IF blog.
It's Peak +15 today and it looks like AF has started. How flipping fantastic.
But in other news, I have the Ch.ildren's A.id So.ciety adoption information beside me. I feel more than a little overwhelmed. I forgot how extensive the application was.
Baby steps, right?
