  • No screens in 4 of the 7 windows.
  • The porch gets REALLY hot because it's over a tar roof.
  • The yard isn't fenced in, so the dogs need to be on their "chain" or we have to be with them to keep close eye on them.
  • No washer and dryer. We have to go to a laundry mat and that not only costs a lot of money, but also abuses the earth.
  • The bedroom is really small.
  • It also has a strange "box" sticking out from the wall that supports a heater vent. This "box" makes it very difficult to place furniture in the way we want.
  • The heating vents act as intercom speakers so we can hear:
    • Our neighbors having sex (And I am POSITIVE they can hear us)
    • Their horrid collection of Hanson, Back Street Boys, 'N Sync, etc. CDs

- Constant fighting w/ my MIL (This is FAR before we liked eachother)

    • Because of a fight w/ her, Ted ended up having to knock his dad out from coming after me with a closed fist because he didn't like me talking back to his wife.

- MIL and GMIL made sure to tell the priest that I was Pagan so that the wedding wouldn't be a Sacrament for Ted. - Because my in-laws were paying for a part of the wedding, my MIL refused to let me choose a LOT of my own wedding.
