Another Wonder!

As I was out and about running errands yesterday, I went to Wilkes-Barre to Wegmans. I love and adore that grocery store. There is so much to buy, that is so yummy good! I enjoy going there and it's probably a good thing that it's 25 miles away. Anyway... I was in line at the check-out and heard my phone beep with a missed call alert. (I was unloading stuff on the belt when my phone rang, so I missed it.) It was a call from our landlord... he forgot to tell me when he saw me that morning that an appraiser was going to be coming in the morning. Gah!!!!

He failed to elaborate as to why... we are left to wonder... is merely for insurance purposes, or is for a new line of credit for his business... or.... is he going to try and sell? I hope it's merely the first or second option... I don't want to go through the hassle of having prospective buyers coming through.... and we certainly don't want to run the risk of having to either move or have our rent increased. (...... shudder......)

This has also put a huge damper... (read-STOP) on my plans for what I wanted to do in the next few months. I want to finish doing some landscape projects, and I wanted to take down the drapes and make new curtains for the living room. I also wanted to do a major make-over on the kitchen... along with doing a new pantry on the porch. All those plans have now come to a screeching halt! We may still do a pantry... but scale it down and make it something that would be portable. We shall see what the best idea is when we start to draw it out.

We are more than ready for the weekend... my knees are still killing me. I cannot wait for Tuesday when I can start my Hyalgan injections and have some relief! If I make too many trips up and down the stairs... do stuff like shopping and carrying it all in... it kicks the pain level up to "Miss Cranky-mode"... up past 6-7 on the pain scale. I'm trying to stay down as ordered... but it's just too hard to do right now!

Thanks for reading... be blessed!

Maybe you could ask for a longer than normal lease in exchange for making home repairs? That way you would not have the fear of having to move and the landlord would be getting home repairs for free! Just a thought...

Hi Suzanne: The landlord is lucky to have such good tenants who look after the property. He should be grateful for that and I'm sure he is. In any case when things seem bleek and difficult in the end everything turns out ok. I know this has worked for me in the past although I have trouble believing that when I'm in the middle of the muddle. Happy weekend, Suzanne
Best always, Sandra
