ARGH. Attorneys suck.

Our mediation on our house tomorrow will likely be canceled. Apparently, the attorney for our builder has yet to receive any authority to negotiate from the builder's insurance company. Without that, we can't have any productive discussions tomorrow.

This pisses me off to no end. We've been dealing with this for 8 months. We've spent close to $10k already on attorney fees. I want to get this house fixed before I have a newborn in it. We just want the damn thing over with and the builder/insurer have been a total pain in the a$$ since day one. We'd just say screw this mediation thing, but a trial will likely cost us $30-50k in and of itself, so that's really a very last resort. I'm just so damn frustrated.

The one bright point in my day - thank GOD - is that Kate is taking her first nap in 4 weeks. At least I have some down time to deal with all the crappy stuff in this day.

Congrats - I can't imagine having something like this on my plate. Man, our house is 100+ years old and (knock on wood) nothing major like this so far... I bet you're glad to have it behind you.
