I have not had the heart to post, and maybe still shouldn't.  I can do okay posting photos on my other blog and pretending everything is okay.

In reality, my mood swings from one thing to another.  Part of the time, I can go on and be okay, and others I am beside myself with stress.  I cannot seem to let go the worry.

The stress is with things with the hail damage and the repairs that have been done, plus two are still not done.  We did get rain, and look below...

There is a hole in the guttering part of the awning.  When it rains pretty hard, it shoots a stream back on to the  porch.  It has never did that before.  I was so glad to be up when it rained, and could go out and check.  And there is more to this but I don't know how to explain it and could not get pics.

Then, the side of the roof that needed done has been done a while...I do not know why I have not noticed things till last week.  I don't know if it was the way the light hit it or what that drew my attention.

Just look at that roofing around the exhaust from the furnace.  I don't know what you call it when it is not a chimney...  expand the view to get a better look.

It looks like someone has almost put a knee through a space up there.  I have sent these pics to our claims adjuster and also talked to the contractor and someone is coming back out tomorrow.

Oh, I left out the part about the drip-edge.  I don't know who knows what they are and who doesn't.  But it is a metal piece the fits under the shingles at the edge of the roof, and one side fits flat against the fascia board.  Everyone I have ever known always says to extend the shingles out past the edge of the drip-edge, from a half inch to a an inch...with this, the shingles don't quite come to the edge of the drip-edge.

I have been sitting mulling all this over in my mind, and wanted to post, but could not do it and be all bright and cheerful.  It just goes round and round in my head no matter what I am doing.

I would like to get up there and look myself, at least at the edge.  I HAVE to do something with the guttering, cause during this, I noticed one side of the guttering did not have a bit of water coming down the downpout.  So it is clogged for sure.

One of the guys comes tomorrow to talk to me about the roof, and I really don't know how to handle it.  If he tries to smooth it over and leave it like this, I do not know what I will do...

Roger is having a bad day today,   He is in bed today...does not feel good.  He usually just lays in his chair and naps...but went back to bed this morn.  He just got up to get something for a he is not feeling good at all.  He has been being so shaky lately I did not dare ask him to help with out ladder.  And it is so heavy I cannot handle it by myself.  It was hard for me when I was in my 40's.  Now,  I just cannot do it.  And I would trust Roger's cousin, but he is not in the best of health either.  So it is like I am between a rock and a hard place.

Sorry for such a whiny post...hopefully next one will be better.
