busy stressed and slightly wierded out but still alive
six month update, we are renting a house but WILL move again in December.
5 months for thumb-latch locks (required by law)
3 days for a hot water heater (after five months of limping function is quite on a Monday night)
3 "owners" fighting over who gets out rent money
3 property management companies
no ability to leave required notices of "we've been in the house to fix "X" just so you know)
no notice that they were coming Before showing up.
I think that covers it. We don't want to deal with these folks again if we can help it.
For work, they changed managers and I became number nine to walk (according to someone still there three more have put in hard notice of the "I'm leaving in X days") something about come in at seven in the morning leave at seven at night but we only want to pay for 8 hours a day, and, oh yeah we want you to GIVE us 8 hours Saturday and Sunday too.
Better news, Lance is working (as in we can live on just what he makes)and looking at moving to a better paying job... maybe if the agency can figure out that they are getting paid to PLACE someone not paid to dither. I'm still looking at finding part time work though.
In Amtgard news, we did a demo at a movie theater with eight people the first night and five the second. The theater was happy and it was fun, but no new people to play with.
Other news I'm looking at graduate school. In business and accounting. Be afraid, be very afriad. A head shrinking bean counter.... but we're still hunting options here. FAFSA here I come, here's hoping they will hand over money for school.
At least I can sew more. I'm sewing a wedding dress at the moment and have piles of glass and stone beads to go on it once I'm done with the basics of the dress itself. I'll be almost halfway done with the plain sewing once I get this side seam fine finished... After that a tunic for Shawn and the finishing of the hem decoration of an Archon surcoat for me. Lance is tired of me borrowing his, and I need one for the Gathering of the Clans.
This weekend we are doing a mid-reign bash for Nocturnis and I have to get off my butt and finish the handout for the pants class I offered to teach. I suspect it'll just be the "lecture" part not a practical sewing part, I can hope though.
