So far I've spent three hours on the phone with county building officials. Sheesh! Gotta submit paperwork and forms to three different county agencies before they will issue a building permit. Each of those departments has its own fees, varying from $150 to $250. One form requires an engineer/architect stamp. Another requires an elevation certificate signed by a licensed surveyor. Left a voice mail for one department head. He called back and began by telling me how busy he is. 45 minutes later he was still talking. Heard about where he lived, when he built his home, where he went to school, when he plans to retire, the vehicle he drives, and other things I was able to blank out. Busy??? Get off the phone and do some work!!!My three-year term on our course Board of Directors expires this year. Annual membership meeting last night. I was elected to a second three-year term. In addition, the proposed new maintenance operations facility was approved to move forward. Guess who the bank has listed as 'Project Manager'??!! Sounds like my busy retirement life may become a little more chaotic as I take on a $400,000 construction project. My wife just shakes her head... and smiles. "Great! I can look forward to MORE time you're out of the house and not under my feet!!" The voices in my head had a staff meeting and, in unison, want to fire which every one of the voices seemed to think this is a good idea!!
This winter has seemed especially long and we have probably 6 more weeks before it’s in the 40’s regularly. I’m so sick of winter.
The cold and snow are a couple of major reasons i'm considering relocating to Georgia, can't see myself dealing with this crap much longer.
