Another Sunday Under Our Belts

Which went off as usual. I spent most of the day setting up olddocking.us as a Piwigo Gallery for Family to upload family pictures. Trying to get all the Old family pictures in one place. (There was some initial interest but I really don’t expect it to amount to much. Still, kinda fun to set it all up and get it working. Working correctly is a whole ‘nother matter!)

SWMBO took me to Taco Bell for our Date Day dinner yesterday. Then our usual stop at Walmart. What was unusual was we spent over $250! On what?!? We actually left with fewer bags than usual. Guess the plastic bins, medicine stuff, and Complete Addams Family DVD’s were the big ticket items.

Otherwise, not much going on. Still haven’t seen our Renter start to move her stuff out. She did contact me after I managed to get a text through to her. Seems she’s waiting for her tax return to pay me rent. Sure. And the tooth fairly is hanging about my bed just waiting. She threatened me saying she’s not going to pay rent if I Evict her (too late) and gave me orders NOT to go into the MILA again. Think I’m going to start legal proceedings Monday to get her out and then start the paperwork to take her to court for the rent/electric. Turns out everything her abusive ex-boyfriend said about her is coming true. Once she’s through with you …

Anywho, Addams Family marathon going on while I rip the discs to convert to .mkv files. Uploading pictures to the new gallery and a video to YouTube. Made myself some soft serve and think I’ll settle down.

OMG! You Would NOT Believe The MILA Mess!

So, RCW 59.18.310 not-with-standing, and the law saying that it considers a rental abandoned after 15 days of not paying rent, it still leaves a mess for me to clean Yes, Damned Good Looking.up. Took a butt-ton of pictures of the mess, yes MESS, down there. Dirty dishes in the sink, pans with grease in them on the stove, food left out. There’s a good 8 hours work just in the kitchen alone. So, should I stand at the sink down there and do dishes or should I box them up and bring them up and run them through the dishwasher?

Then, the rest of the MILA is dirty, dingy, disorganized, and just plain depressing. The clothes in the bottom of the closet fill her 10 ft couch 2 feet deep. Trash all over. Even in her underwear drawer. Even found fossilized cat shit in the closet. Her bathroom is about the cleanest room and still not clean enough for me to take a shower in it. I’m far from being the “perfect” housekeeper, but, damn, even I do a better job than that. (We’re messy, not dirty.)

All These Clothes Were On The Floor Of The MBR Closet

All the flat surfaces have a build-up of grime that’s going to take some scrubbing and, honestly, the whole place needs repainting and brighter lights installed. Many brighter lights installed. The floor is puckering in places (???) and needs to come up and fixed and replaced. Looks like the fridge might need replacing. I’ll try deep cleaning it first, of course.

Thought I Was Kidding?

Anywho, nothing else going on around here. It snowed again today for a couple of hours but nothing really stuck to the ground. Dog is bored as hell even though we’ve been on several walks. Even during the snow once.

P1170805bOn a brighter note: My soft-serve ice cream maker came in yesterday. Tried it out last night and it worked just fine. Need to finesse the goop mix a bit, but that’ll come with experience. Tasted just like real soft-serve!

A company was supposed to come fix SWMBO’s windshield today but rescheduled for Friday. Said the replacement glass had flaws and wanted to get a new one. Go for it! Only the best for SWMBO. (But, maybe, they didn’t want to work out in the rain/snow either. Just saying.)

Anywho. That’s about it from around here. Mostly stuck inside unless I want to get bundled up for a walk or two or three or … Starting to clean the MILA and kinda upset that we get to go through this. I see court in my future to collect what we’re owed. Fuck.
