It's been very interesting living here this last year (to say the least) and amazing what a difference a year makes. A few highlights:
A new landlord came on the scene and decided to do renovations beginning with ripping all the bricks off the building as a starter. Well, that was weird.
The inside of the house was covered with red dust and the floors began sagging more and more daily. Hmmmm. Uninvited exercise. Me no like.
|I always thought windows|
were pretty well pemanent!
Most recently, we had a bit of a wind in Montréal. Not a tornado....not a major storm.....a wind......yet one of the windows blew right out! Did you get this? A window.....BLEW.... RIGHT....OUT! Huh? I don't see anyone else's windows flying through the air like they were on the way to Oz.
Now, because the weather is getting a BIT warmer, we're inundated with ants. Ants all over the kitchen. We're on the second floor! How do these little buggers get in here?
Our lovely flowers are now a pile of rubble, the lawn is gone, and quite honestly, it's embarrassing to live here. If we had friends over (which we don't because we'd be mortified), they'd leave money at the door or send us packages to help us out.
I'm counting the days (17 max). You may think I'm obsessed with this, and you'd be right. There is a very sweet street lady that sits outside my office building and I chat with her quite often. Last week she asked me if we had moved yet. I didn't even realize that I had mentioned this to her. I can't believe I actually bothered her with my stupid problems but obviously I've been ranting about this more than I realized!
|Ah spring! Time for the grass|
and hedges to beautify the
Whew. It's great to vent.
The sad part of this is that people used to come to our house and say how beautiful it was. There were no uphill/downhill slopes to the floors, no bugs, no drippy faucets, no war torn landscape....and we loved the place. Isn't it odd what a difference a year makes!?!
ANYWAY.....I'm so keen to go I can taste it. The new place has to be painted before we move in which will be done at the end of this month. I was thinking of doing a "before" and "after" thingy just for fun. Too bad I didn't do it here!
