Landlords Suck

Guess what I get to do this week?? Move...by myself. Hubby is upset and ready to come home but hey...I'm a woman. I can do this. Right? What's so hard about it? Besides...I've done it before by myself. At least my mom can help with the baby and my 13 yo can help when he gets out of school. I wonder if it would be an excused abscence if I kept him out? They used to do it for farmers during harvest...I'm raising children.

We have had nothing but problems with our stupid house. The kitchen floods everytime that it rains because the backyard slopes up. I haven't had an overhead kitchen light in 6 months and the A.C. almost went out last year and we had 2 inches of water in our hall for several days before we threatened to move. Well...it has frozen up. And I'm tired of noe response from landlord. The owner is trying to sell and refuses to put any money into them. Our neighbor has a 3 foot crack in her bedroom ceiling and the same landlord keeps putting her off on fixing it. When it rains...she has buckets. Usually hubby takes care of it.

No problem. I can do this right?! At least I know how to hook up and pull my hubby's 18 foot utility trailer. Now backing it back into where he's got it...that's another story. Please pray for the Suburban this week. No dents, dings or scratches.

Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!

Ugh! You're a strong woman. I HATE moving.

But you can do it, sweetie. I'll be praying for you!

Take it from someone who has moved A LOT - you can do it. Get it done, don't sweat the small stuff and promise yourself a nice big chocolate martini when you're done! Good luck!

Yes, sounds like it's definitely time to move. The kids can help more than you know. Hope everything goes smoothly.

I hate moving. Actually I like being in a new place, but the physcial moving I can't stand.
My prayers are out there for you.
