Friday Fretting

It's Friday and I am Fretting - We bought an 11 unit complex the end of January. We've had to start evictions on 2 of them, 2 moved out on their own, 2 were already empty, and the worse one I gave a 30 day notice to. I'm afraid we'll have to evict that one also. Of course, the Captain is out to Sea - so guess who is left here to do the dirty work???? Whine, whine, whine. Actually, I am enjoying getting the apartments back into shape, but I had no idea how much work it would be. I strip floors of carpet, tack strips, linoleum, tiles, rotten wood - whatever it takes. I sand sheet rock, prime and paint walls. I make numerous dump runs. I clean up a lot of trash. This morning I have to go see the damages to the eviction that left last night. This tenant never paid any rent, and wouldn't let us in the apartment. They had 2 Pit Bulls. He said he'd leave the key under the mat. We think they may have been messing selling drugs. I'm dreading it. But then yesterday I dreaded going to court for the other eviction process and we were in and out in 20 minutes with everyone being very cordial. It was weird - they agreed to be out by the 8th of June. Of course, no money - but as least they will be out and we can renovate and get someone in who will pay rent. I'd better quit whining and get to work.

It sounds like you are one busy lady lately! I hope everything works out for you...I wouldn't want to rent to anyone with pit bulls...I personally think they ALL ought to be exterminated off the face of the earth, what are they good for, other than guarding apartments of drug dealers??

btw, I haven't sent your book sure would be nice to have a vehicle that worked!! I'll get it out soon.

I am more and more sure I don't want to go that route for retirement income, lol. John needs to be home for that, he is way less nice and cares way less what people think of him.

It is through the use of this medium that they wish to make in roads in the communications market.
As a matter of fact, there are some news stories that have made such a
strong impact on the society that some of them
have even won accolades. He becomes a different person once he dons
his uniform to the sound of the orchestra warming up. Newspaper companies
should be seeking to have subscribers to their service where breaking news can be
emailed and send to blackberries and cell-phones. But I felt I
had something interesting, if not unique, to say about the Mafia because as a boy I had listened not only to
Mafiosi in my stepfather's kitchen but to first and second generation Sicilians who understood how and why the Mafia had gotten a foothold in this country.

One should apply minimal pressure to lift these concrete grinders and also hold it in flat motion while working.
