A letter from the Investor
By The Human
Morning Scratch investor
Dear Morning Scratch readers,
Our floors were to be finished Friday, which is why I picked up the kitty reporters on Thursday. But, of course, the floors aren't finished. In fact, the installer screwed up the sealant. So, the cats are confined to a bathroom upstairs for who knows how much longer ... hopefully not more than a week.
In this note, I also announce a temporary suspension of The Morning Scratch. Our new-home problems are much more extensive than I have let on, and the joys of my cats that I wish to share are being overshadowed by the house. This house should have never passed city inspection, and we are having to redo fairly large portions of it, all while the builder believes he is not accountable for a house he built beginning to fall apart only two months after we moved in. Truly, we bought a nightmare.
We still have a lot of good news to share, and still a lot of fun and love in our lives, but as the investor, I can no longer support the reporters' project right now. I need to completely focus on how to get through this difficult task of fixing a brand-new home (new problems arise as each week goes by) and going after a builder who should be held accountable. When that is complete, or at least when it's on the right path, we will return. The staff has a lot to report!
You all have been a great support, and we will still be visiting all of you often.
