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.

Pretty Normal Around Here.

Which means just not a lot happening. DID have a really nice date day with my Schweetie yesterday. She took me to Red Lobster for Lobster Fest. I had a bowl of clam chowder and a side of Walt’s Shrimp. She had shrimp alfredo. I like Lobster, but was in the mood for a simple meal that wouldn’t fill me up so much I’d be uncomfortable. Besides, the company is the best part anyway.

Then we did our usual at Walmart. I bought a big roaster pot thing ($30) made out of that copper stuff. Man, that stuff cleans easy! She made London Broil for dinner tonight and the burnt on stuff basically rinsed right off when I got to doing dishes. Nice. Well worth it if things makes my chores easier.

Didn’t want to do it but I posted (mailed and registered) an Eviction Notice on the MIL|A door for the Renter. Mailed a copy to her work too. Even tried using Messenger to let her know but I don’t know if she’s seen it or not. If I don’t hear from her by Wednesday next then RCW 59.18.310 says I can consider the place abandoned and start packing her stuff. I truly wish it hadn’t some to this.

No idea where things we TU either. When she stopped by to get her wheels last Saturday (week ago) she really acted like she didn’t even want to talk to me. Rude. Curt. I almost think that now that she doesn’t need me to testify in her behalf she’s just kicked me to the curb. Which is too bad cause I’d have testified the same thing even if we hadn’t been friends. Or, I thought we were friends. Ah well.


So, need to get her stuff out and get the place fixed up so we can start renting it out again. Raising the rent to $1k since we’re not having any luck with the $700/mo crowd. We tried to keep it low to help out some low-income folks and it just ain’t working. Need to redo the floor(s), paint and add lights to the bath, and fix up the kitchen for sure.

Most of our snow has evaporated instead of melting. All the underbrush is still beat down and I’m thinking it’ll take a couple of years to bounce back. But, who knows.

Anywho, that’s pretty much it. SSDD mostly. NOT looking forward to the confrontation with the Renter. Guess I’ll survive as long as she doesn’t shoot me. And she does have a gun. And I still like her dang it.
