Let's just hit the weather for a minute here. Snow one week and 90 freaking degrees the next. Oh Vt, you can be so cray cray, but do me a favor and stop being 90..I can't sleep, I am constantly sweating....I think I am pretty much melting, not to mention slightly bitchy. Just be 80 with a nice cool breeze. I would like that a lot. Thanks.
The past week has been one full of the fullness that comes with owning apartment buildings. . A handful of the apartments are turning over so we have been running around dealing with repairs, cleaning, and over all property maintenance. There has been lots of weeding, mowing, and tree cutting, you know, all sorts of fun stuff. The buildings are looking good but you should see our little fenced in yard right now. It kind of looks like a junk yard from all the shit we have been piling up for lack of time or space to deal with it all. That and we are also in the processes of getting a new work car. (the process being craigslist) , so until we do, moving stuff is on hold. Why is it so hard to find a working truck that doesn't cost a million dollars and will get us from point a to point b without falling apart and being fancy.? We pretty much just need something to haul trash and lawn mowers and the occasional toilet. Is that to much to ask? Apparently it is. (we will find something, I am just being a whine ass)
Anyway, we have managed to get to the new house this week and get the rest of the metal roofing on, a temporary gate up so now Washer can roam free, and lots and lots of nails removed from the floors.Things are still moving along. I even spent some time with the plants while the mr mowed the front lawn (We do it mullet style. Short in the front yard,long in the back) And hopefully today we will have a little time to get over there as well. I really want to harvest some rhubarb and get a few more plants into the ground before it's to late.
And hopefully you are having yourself a long and enjoyable weekend. It's pretty much summer now so it's time to do all the summer stuff that needs to be done.
Some internet stuff to keep you occupied if in need.
