Do I Have a Typical Day??? Ever???

April 10th, 2007 at 02:40 pm

I've come to the conclusion I don't. I don't have typical days here, unless the fly by the seat of my pants, deal with who & what crosses the threshold qualifies as typical. I try to make some sort of blog entry that is neat & tidy and has some sort of theme to it.......and fail miserably most times. Today is no exception. Nothing has hooked together at all....

Started with email & phone calls. Contacted the tenants; the downstairs couple is bringing 2 months rent (which brings them current) this evening. Just got an email from the upstairs people, they are only sending the check minus the $600. they asked about. (I had told them I couldn't reduce the rent) Now what???

Foster dtr with grandbaby stopped by for a visit..........Fun to see her feeling so competent with him.

Called new potential tenant here......left message about him moving in. No response.

Gathered 8 eggs from the new chickens. Getting at least 6 a day now.....Making for some frugal meals.

Received my order of supplies for this months knitting & crochet classes. Used my new ball winder & made up smaller balls of yarn for each student. Wound up some odd balls of mine, to use for a couple door prize drawings at class. Almost ready now, which is good.....one day to go before the knitting class.

And, because I promised myself I'd campaign for Obama if & when he decided to run for President.......I signed up to volunteer here in our county for his campaign. I've always wanted to be involved in a political campaign, but couldn't due to kid type commitments....so this actually qualifies as something I'm doing for ME too.

So, I guess today is typical for me. Just one thing after another...all unrelated mostly. I think this is why I'm unsure about getting a 'real' job. I think I would be crazy doing the same thing all the time. As I get closer to June (the end of my one year trial at semi retirement) I find I'm looking at employment ads & imagining myself doing something.........anything........

    Sounds like you've done a lot today! Volunteering for a campaign is awesome.. keep us informed on how it goes Smile In regards to your tenant, if you have a lease agreement, then they just can't make up a rent amount whenever they want... much less a $600 difference to what they agreed to. And maybe I missed it, but what was their reasoning for wanting to pay the lesser amount? Sorry if thats repetative. I'm just curious.

    Tenants reasoning is a medical need. I can see both sides, however I can't underwrite their housing expenses either.
    Just received a return email from said tenants.......they are giving notice, as they can't pay the full (previously agreed upon) rent. Drat, drat, drat.

    I'm totally on the Obama bandwagon...I've never voted Democrat in my life, but I would cross over in a minute if he wins the nomination. Hubby bought me his book for Christmas, but I haven't had time to start reading it yet. Maybe tonight...

    It does sound like you are busier than if you did have a full time job, but how boring to do what someone else says, when they say, instead of doing what YOU want to do when you want to? I don't know, just pondering as I fell asleep on the couch today and never did get to painting the bathroom! :-)
