The Tenants From Hell Are Gone
Luckily, my mother helped me clean it last night (garbage day) and now it is under control. I took her out to icecream afterwards. Like the reverse of when I was a kid.
Who leaves an apartment like this. Especially considering I gave the a break on the rent for like 3 months.
This is the view from backyward the showhouse tour we went to on Sunday. I thought it was cool to see those buildings from another angle.
I can't believe they shelaced newspaper on the floor as a decorative style. That is so tacky.

I hope people don't think I'm a slum lord. I guess it will be fixed soon enough.

I wish this job would end. I am much more cut out for computer programming and graphic design than for things like landlording.
I have no pictures of anything that happend today because my phone battery died and as did the phone charger. It's almost like it did not happen.
On the way to and from the apartment we saw the police pulling over lots of people. One of the situations was like 4 cop card arresting a 60 year old looking black man walking down the street in front of Off the Wall. It seemed really over the top.

I also took apart a motion detector for further study. (E:terry) and my dad worked on a chair for three millions hours and then threw it out.
On monday we get our first rent money. Hopefully, it will make it worth it.

painting the property
So I will be three stories up dangling from a rope weilding a giant
retractable poll? This landlording job seems more dangerous everyday.
So the remaining question remains what color. We decided to consult
with (e:matthew) about that first. They have this machine at home depot
that can take real life objects and tell you what color they are to find
the paint color you need. It judged terry to be deep topaz. It was
about the color of strong chai mixed with chocolate milk. For those of
you that have seen (e:terry), you can appreciate how poor that machine

Still Working on the house
My mother has the strangest priorities, like vacuuming between the matress and the box spring. Because the tenant is only paying $500, getting 2 weeks free, getting a furnished 3 bedroom and we are giving her the bed, multiple sets of bedding and two vacuums, I feel like she could do that herself. Not that I would ever do that for myself even. I think my mom should just shift prioritties to moving the crap out.
To make matters worse (e:matthew) to got in a fight with my mother. It was triggered by my mother insisting we have done nothing,which is clearly a lie as you can see by reading my journal. (E:matthew) actually put all his free time into working here just not in the way my demanding mother wanted. But, while I actually agree with him about most of the content of his argument, he could have just dealt with it better without yelling. They are both screamers. My father is too. I am at my last patient moment for screaming. In fact, this is preciselywhy IM is my prefered method of conversation. That is unless (e:twisted) starts "screaming" with her caplocks down,lol.
The tenant just got here and is already making excuses fornot having august's rent on time, but she did say she loves us like family - great.

What landlording sounds like
Here is (e:matthew) smashing out a cabinet, that needs to be replaced. Check out his triceps.
