Spring is Sprunging! :)

I threw on my dusty garden clogs and with baby on my hip (and dressed warmly of course) we took a brief jaunt about the house today in search of spring.

And guess what?!

We found it!

Tulips, daffodils and crocuses sprouts/shoots/whatevertheyarecalled were all sighted today! Woohoo!

Pothole Damage? How to File a Claim in Indiana

This info is not the easiest to find, so I thought I would share once I had managed to finally figure out all the steps. Lots of things I found said to call a number to file a tort claim or how to file it but not the actual form. Well, dear readers I have found said form! Good grief it shouldn't be so hard to find this info!

Downloadable/Printable Notice of Tort Claim Form
Provided by the State of Indiana - Office of the Attorney General

Note: You will need copies of two estimates and a copy of the paid bill for any repairs. (a new tire and a new rim in my case) And the exact location of the loss (include county, nearest crossroad, & town) - On ramp to southbound I-65 from E Southport Road - avoid at all costs! Major MAJOR pothole. Sigh. Happy Birthday me. :/

P.S. The form has to be mailed by CERTIFIED or REGISTERED mail.

P.P.S. You only have 270 days after the loss to file a claim. And keep a copy of everything you send - including the certified/registered mail receipt.

Other Info Deemed Interesting:

Pothole Repair Fact Sheet for 2011 

Info about Potholes on the Indiana State Government Website
(notice how they give a phone number to call about the tort claim instead of a link to the actual form - shady. AND how the potholes link simply reroutes to the mayor's action center)

No Place I Would Rather Be

Chubby baby thighs
Plump baby cheeks
Bitsy toes that curl
Tiny fingers that seek
Eyes full of wonder
At the world that you see
Closed now in peaceful slumber
In my arms you lie close to me
Safe and warm across my lap
There's no other place I'd rather be
Than here rocking you gently
Savoring this sweet moment
You mean to so much to me
