Quick Tease
Ok, I thought I ought to update you all (all 2 or 3 of you). I did make it back safely from Nova Scotia on Friday as planned. Spent the last several days catching up on house stuff and my duties as resident manager here at our condo development. Who knew there would be so much crap to deal with?? I am used to managing commercial properties and let me tell you, it's a lot less work!! Why is it every group of people, no matter what it is for, must have at least one person who gripes just to gripe and who tries to get something for nothing (not necessarily the same person but, in this case, it is)??

One of our residents sent me a letter demanding either the association or our landscaper pay to have his windows rewashed! Seems he hired a professional window service to come out and wash his windows and had his housekeeper do the screens and clean the spaces between the windows and screens 3 days before the landscapers blew in the mulch. Surprise, surprise- now the cleaning needs to be redone! Of course, he ignores the fact that I sent out notices in early April that this was going to be done but heaven forbid he should wait a couple of extra days (it turned out to be 3). Anyway, he was told "too bad, so sad- pay for it yourself and next time READ THE DAMN BULLETINS!! He also did not like the color of the mulch (it's natural cedar). Tough. Oh, and his driveway needs repair as it is built on a hill with a retaining wall and the wall is allowing soil to wash out from under the problem; here we own our lots and homes as it's a site condominium, not a traditional one. Gee, guess what I had to tell him?? I suggested he contact the developer who designed and built the driveway and retaining wall. Oh, did I mention he's related to the developer????

Oh, and yeah, almost forgot, I DID buy a home in Chester, Nova Scotia. Will close on the 27th of June. It's a brand new condo right on the water with great views of the front harbor. I can't post pictures of it yet since I haven't closed but the building inspector said it was the best constructed building he had ever inspected in over 15 years on the job!! Awesome!!!!

Well, gotta go get cleaned up and head into town. I only have two weeks left of my weaving class and I have barely started on the piece I have on the loom so I am going to be going in extra days to get it done!!

    Welcome home. What a thankless job - I don't think I could do it.

    Congrats on the new home purchase. Does this mean you will spend more time in NS?

    For now I will be going to Nova Scotia for the summer and stay in Michigan for the winter. Once Joey is off to college that may change.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
