we just had a weekend with our friends deb and kevin. it was a great weekend. kenzie had kaitlyn over for a sleepover, and so, deb and i went to the movies in the early afternoon and kevin and ryan went that evening. we all saw the hunger games at the three dollar theater. it was great! i am so very glad that i read the book before i went to the theater. i find that by reading the book , although there is alot having to be left out of the movie, i find that i totally understand the movies better that way. i can't wait for the second one to come out!
then monday, the maintenance man was here to do some work on the bathroom, and well, it's not looking so hot. he's just making shortcuts and not correcting the initial problems... so we have complained to the landlord about him. this is the 2nd maintenance man who has been working on the same issues and we are having the same problems out of him. i can't wait until God blesses us with enough money to put down on a house. it will come and when it does, i can breathe a little easier. while i like renting because i don't have to do the maintenance, i don't have a say in many of the aspects that i would love to have a say in such as for example, how hard is it to just give me a darn dishwasher? i would make my life so much easier! anyway, it's looking more like we will have to vacate this property and go live in one of the land lord's other properties so they can get all of the work done on this house. this may be the best scenario for us because with all the rain we have had, the septic tank is flooded (no, we don't have poo in the yard YET) and the septic guys can't pump it until our back yard dries up. it's been flooded due to the rain for about 2 weeks now. and the rain doesn't seem to be letting up enough to dry it up. and that's just one of the major issues with this house.
well until next time
