Driving in my Car

Ha! I remembered to post these - LOL! Here's my new stuff for this week. Since Easter is next week, I decided to get some Easter WordArt packs designed and in the store. Thought they'd be great on all your Easter layouts, AND on your Easter cards. AND, there's a fun one about Playtime. Click HERE to go to my store to pick up my new stuff :) And remember, it's 20% off the first week (Only $2.00!!)






I did a little bit of cleaning yesterday. Jimmy and Joe's room is TOTALLY clean. I even vacuumed. That's HUGE for me - hehehe. I went through their clothes and got rid of the stuff that didn't fit or was too old. I'll pick a different bedroom to tackle today. Slow yet steady wins the race, eh?

Our currrent landlord called me today, and chewed me out for 20 minutes, about what horrible people we were for trying to get out of our lease early. He had me in tears. I know it's just his job, but it still wasn't very nice. He accused me of planning long term on getting out of our lease when Military housing opened up. TOTALLY not the case. Yeah, we went BANKRUPT to get out of housing. Come on. We're not stupid. He kept saying that our laywer wouldn't be able to break the lease, and we'd be liable for the whole year. He said we'd messed up the house because my kids colored on the wall. HIS kids never colored on wall, he said. It wasn't a great conversation. Sigh. I miss Captain America.

Captain America called shortly after that, and I cried to him, and told him what happened. He called our lawyer, and left a message for her. She called me back, and said that he was just trying to strong arm us, and get us to stay. He wasn't telling the truth. She said that if he called again, to refer him to her. I felt MUCH better after talking to her. Mean man. You shouldn't make girls cry, don't you know!

Well, part of the problem may be that I'm PMS'y. I also almost cried twice when watching ER last night. I'm not an overly emotional person, unless I'm hormonal. Then, you'd better watch out - hehehe.

We had Parent Teacher conference yesterday too. Joe had his conference at 3:30. He's doing well. He still needs to learn his letter names/sounds a bit better, but I'll help him during the summer. She said he's a good kid (a bit shy, but adjusting).

Eme was next at 3:45. She's doing FABULOUS! He teacher LOVED her drawings, her writing, and said she's a WONDERFUL reader. At the very end of 1st grade, they want the kids reading 60 words per minute, but she's reading at 69 wpm right now. You go, Eme!!!

Tom was next. He's getting A's and B's. His teacher said he's a VERY smart kid. They took a State test, and he only missed on problem. She was SUPER impressed. Good job, Tom! She said that he needed to work on socializing a bit more. He finally confessed that a few of the kids were saying rude things to him, but he didn't tell anyone. He said that he didn't want to be a Tattle-tale. We had the "you've gotta speak up" talk, and I hope it'll get better for the time he's still at the school.

Then, it was back home for dinner. Joe was suppsed to bring snack to school today (and cotton balls), so a trip to Wal-Mart, then back to the school. Jacob's conference was at 6:40. His teacher said he was a GREAT student, very smart. He did say that he needs to work on staying on task, and not daydreaming. He said that when he goes to 6th grade middle school (instead of 6th in elementary school like right now), some of the other kids might make fun of him. Jake was like, "I'm used to that. Everyone always makes fun of me". Poor kid. But, when you act weird, that's gonna happen. He recognizes that - hehehe. Luckily, it doesn't seem to bother him too much. Oblivious, that could be his middle name - hehehe.

Then, after we got back home, and got the little kids to bed, Jacob and I went for a jog. Yep, I'm gonna try exercising again. I sure need to do something - hehehe. We did 0.6 miles (I know, not too much, but it's a start - 10 minutes of continuous jogging)

Today is the day that I'm getting back on my diet. Really. Today. Not last night when I was eating Peanut Butter sandwhiches at 9pm. Not yesterday when I was eating bakery cookies from Wal-Mart. Not yesterday at lunch time when I had tuna and crackers for lunch. Today. And I'm gonna exercise again. In the evening. With Jacob. And LOTS of water. That alwasy helps. And LOTS of gum. I LOVE sugar free gum.

This WordArt request is from Jenny - she wanted it for a picture of her little one pretending to drive a car. You know, I have a TON of pics like this that I could scrap :) CARS is Jimmy's favorite movie, you know - hehehe.

OMGosh, some landlords are horrible!! We were great LL's - we have "been there" and "needed to do that" so we always let people out with pro-rating the next month's rent so it fit with the 30-Day Notice. If you didn't have a lawyer I would suggest looking at your state's Uniform Landlord-Tenant Code (or something like that) - it would tell you your rights as a tenant. The last LL we had tried to stick us with new carpet, saying our cats pee'd on it. That whole duplex smelled horribly of DOG and cigarettes when we moved in!! The previous tenant had a dog and smoked there for MANY years. The vinyl windows were stained almost brown from the smoking - I had to wash it all off when I accidentally wiped some of it off, then it looked obviously dirty, talk about ick! Anyway, he wanted our damage deposit and the entire next month's rent. We told him we'd pay for all the days in the 30 day notice. He sent us a letter saying he'd take us to court so I sent him a bill for all the improvements/cleaning we did - we bought blinds, maybe a couple faucets, gallons of Febreeze (hehe) and had to clean up mouse droppings. Did I mention the termites in the basement? omgosh I was so paranoid they were going to get into my stuff! I was 7 months pregnant at the time so I think I tacked on mental anguish too. By the time my itemization was done, pitting our expenses against the money he was trying to get, he owed us $45! We got our damage deposit back a couple weeks later. ANOTHER LL tried to do the same thing and took us to court. We were prepared to countersue on the grounds that he didn't make an honest effort to rent the place in the 30 days we gave him - that's in the Uniform Code. I kept clippings of his newspaper ad for the entire period and there were 2 weeks that it didn't run - we offered to show the place and take applications for him to help him out, but he declined. He went on vacation or something instead of getting his apt. rented. The judge let us talk it out before actually beginning the hearing and once we showed the LL the list of "damages" we were seeking, he gave us our deposit back and let us pay the pro-rated amount for the partial month (only about 6 days rent). Our damages included 2-3 days lost wages, mileage and gas - we had to travel 8 hours to be in court!! He would have owed us a lot more than $45!
I'm glad you have a lawyer to fight this for you, you don't have time to make up such expenditure reports! Enjoy your new digs and vent here any time you need to - I'm sure you'll always find plenty of support! Hugs, Angel
