Wow - sorry to hear that... you might want to contact a newspaper or local TV - I'm serious. Someone stole our money once when we were going on a trip to France. The company was Milestone, and the director took off with all our money... Our teacher contacted the media and people just started helping. A commedy group did a show for us, for free - all the money went to new tickets for the next year. Another company offered to give us special prices, and we went. We had to sell the tickets though - but so many people tried to help us. My face was on the front page of the paper... it was hard, but we did it. Certain comapnies will do that so they get the free air time on tv or the radio... You're gonna laugh - but why don't you write to Oprah... who knows? She's got resources and many connections...

You could google it... who knows? Or you could write a really awesome essay for your college applications- especially if your mom's death influenced your decision to study in a certain area like law or law enforcement. The school could be so impressed that they offer you a scholarship. Schools generally have unadvertized scholarships for anyone they REALLY want.

I think you just have to be firm with them. Every time it comes up, say, "We appreciate the thought, but we don't think your solution will work for us. We are saving up money to do the fence our way. So, please wait." In the meantime, I'd drain and cover the pool. If you are pregnant, it's going to be really hard to watch your little boy all the time, and it sounds like he is an active one. Once you get the fence problem solved, you can get the pool back in service. If you reject your parents' advice, you also need to reject the money -- it comes with strings attached. Try to make things as safe as you can, and ask them to not discuss this subject with you anymore. And then move on briskly to something happy and fun. (-: You survive almost-2-year-old hissies. You can survive your parents' hissies too! P.S. I thought of a way to get your folks to compromise -- maybe you pay for a landscape designer or architect to come and look at your property and make a recommendation. Those designer people, their brains work around corners! They can find a safe and aesthetically pleasing solution that maybe none of you guys could. I think it's worth the money! It sounds like you have a difficult yard.

It sounds like they mean well and dearly love their grandchildren. They probably think that with buying a new home and with a small child and another on the way that they are financially doing you a favor, which they would be, if in fact you actually WANTED the fence. This is your home. You and your husband are adults and make the decisions regarding your home. Just tactfully tell them that although you appreciate the offer, that's just not what you'll be doing to your home. Noone has the right to come into your home(yard) and tell you how to remodel it. That is entirely up to you. Put them in check now before it gets out of hand. But remember to include alot of love, I really don't think they mean any harm.
