…Yes, we finally received a little bit of justice for the whole yard situation. It only took us three days to get in touch with anyone and they were all a little bit rude but in the long run we got what we were looking for. The contractor is going to sod the trench then seed the rest of the yard. Matt said it won’t look 100% the same but it’s a start and we can work on the rest. Then the lady at the city said she’d spoke with her supervisor and that they would replace the tree. Matt told her, “It’s not so much the monetary value of the tree but that was my first Christmas tree with my wife.” She said awww and don’t worry it will be replaced. The City probably thinks we’re crazy because we’re this upset over a tree and then the whole reason behind it! OH WELL! I’m still upset because it won’t be “our” tree but I guess it’s better than nothing. I am happy that it has been solved for the time being; now we’ll just see how long it takes to actually replace and fix everything. Thanks for the positive thoughts everyone! I’ll be sure to post the progress.

Matt had called and left two messages for the lady at the city then I called and apparently I was sounding real bitchy because luckily, she got ahold of Matt and not me and she told him, "Yes, your wife sounded very upset..." then at the end of the convo she said, "So you'll take care of your wife?" Sometimes, you just have to get in touch with your inner bitch to get things done!
