    Worknig Working, Working, Wop

    Cleaning, working, shopping, hauling, tired, yup.

    Ladybug never learned what an inside voice is, or so it seems, and she somehow believes that screaming at one's parents and treating one's entire family as if they were stubborn gum from a stranger's disgusting mouth stuck to the bottom of your shoe is an appropriate thing to do. She also thought that screaming at the top of her lungs at nearly midnight was acceptable in a residential area. I believe we may have finally set her straight. I think it's the stress getting to her, but self-control is an art she must perfect.

    I finally got some sleep. Not yet enough, but I feel so much better than I did. We still have to go back to the old place and get some things we left outside, as well as clean up a bit more, finish cleaning out a shed and replant the yard in grass. On top of that, I have several appointments to make it to.

    Landlord called today and told us that the dumpster had been emptied so we can use it again for things we may still need to toss. How nice of him to let us know. That would make things easier on us by a bit if we hadn't already thrown out all that we wanted to, but instead, he's asking that we toss the extra goodies that were stacked around the dumpster into it as well. *sigh* I guess one more thing won't hurt. If the dumpster had been empty when we were tossing things out, we would have tossed them in, so no biggie. Then he mentioned that he wanted us to clean and sweep out the sheds! Those things had to be cleaned out when we moved in before we could use them, and we had to do it ourselves. I've cleaned out all of our things, but I'll be darned if I'm going to clean out tings that were there for god knows how long before we even moved in like fiberglass insulation, rock salt, house parts, building supplies, and more! Sorry, but no. I am under the impression that now he is looking to charge us a "cleanup" fee for something, even if he has to invent said thing we are responsible for cleaning up. *growl*

    Housing says all I have to do before the first is find a place, not necessarily move in. The place we want to move into won't let Keebler move in with his new job that he hasn't started yet because he will be making too much to move in if he keeps the job. *boggle* They also don't have any ground floor apartments available any longer. The last one of those had a deposit put down on it this past Tuesday. We want to live close to his new job, but there aren't a lot of apartment complexes of reasonable price in that area.

    More phone calls to come. We have one week left to finish cleaning the outside of the old place, the old place's storage sheds, and plant new grass in the yard areas.

    Very happy to hear that you're almost done moving out of your old place. Hope you find a great place soon.
