Holes

Not the great young adult book by Louis Sachar. Instead it would be the two huge holes in our yard...

And don't worry, they look even better today with the nice orange temporary fencing around them!
Our neighbors have evidently not had phone service for two days as the fence guys hit the phone line in at least two places when they set our posts. Great. I called the fence guy to let him know I was a little less than thrilled with the situation (and could you please keep your guys from throwing Dr. Pepper cans all over our yard while you're chastising them for not hand digging the holes in the back to avoid this mess in the first place) and although he was apologetic, he seems to disagree with the evaluation that it was his fault rather than the line marking guys fault. Whatever - all I know is that we have two huge hole in our yard and some neighbors who I suspect are a little less than thrilled with us. Not to mention the fact that poor Aaron has been seeding the yard like a crazy man trying to get some decent grass to grow. All of the trucks through the yard and holes are not helping his cause much...

I went to the cardiologist yesterday to have the heart stuff checked out and everything looks fine. I haven't had any skipped beats since Monday - I am beginning to wonder if that Diet Barq's Root Beer I splurged with on Sunday night may have some caffeine in it despite the no caffeine label...

Oh bummer...not the way to get off on the right foot with new neighbors, huh? Well, hopefully they realize it's not YOUR fault. So what kind of fence are you all getting anyway? And how far off is that puppy?

According to http://health.yahoo.com/topic/nutrition/foods/article/mayoclinic/CE619C35-D037-4016-A9CBEA9A3ECBCEB6 the regular Barqs root beer has 22 mg of caffeine, but the diet has 0, so I would imagine the label is correct. And can't they get into real trouble with the FDA if the label is not correct? Anyway, I hope there's no recurrence of the symptoms. Get the fence up and keep the stress down, okay?

Jean-

I found that info, too but was trying to convince myself there must be a reason for the heart crazies! Good point about the big trouble if the labels are wrong...I know they can get fined into oblivion for bad info on the labels.

Oy! What an ordeal! Hope it gets fixed and the neighbors don't hate ya too much, LOL! Just curious, how big is your back yard? It looks pretty big from the pictures.

Glad you got your heart checked out. Better safe than sorry. So glad it wasn't anything to worry about!

My mom once had a kitchen floor laid and the first thing I thought when I saw it was, "Oh, man, she is gonna be mad. This floor is soooo crooked!" My sister thought the same thing, and so did mom. The installer insisted it was straight. His boss ended up agreeing with us and mom got a new floor.
Hope your story has a satisfactory ending, too!
