    I've been following along with your guys conversation and all, but barely keeping up as most of it is from my phone when I'm in a parking lot on my way somewhere. I've just been that freakin busy!!!!!!

    Right now I'm sitting in Lowe's with our cart full of blinds while Fran tootles all over the store completing our list. I can't wait for this apartment nonsense to be over, have them rented to good people and be done with it. Plus we would have some more money in the bank and steady income foe the forseeable future!

    I read your update in your PTR and you have been so busy! I hope things calm down soon.​

    I hope you find good renters too. I can imagine its a little scary trying to sift through the applicants. How long until you can official list?

    Income for the future is a GOOD thing! :teeth:

    How are you doing on your own remodel? Is that sort of on the back burner until the apartments get rented?

    And isn't D23 coming up? :hyper: I got my free membership through the Disney Store. Guess it's the same one offered through DVC. It's not very exciting. If I lived closer I'd upgrade. Just too hard to take advantage of all the goodness living so far away.​

    I'm hoping by next weekend. Now I'm dependent on Darcy's brother to put up blinds. He has a reguoar job fromm 4AM to 1PM so its when he has time. There are 13 valanaces left to be hung.

    I hope they calm down too. Today I'm not doing any manual labor! Maybe bill paying online. I haven't gone through all the mail this week. Its all in a pile. The sign for the apartment went up Tuesday so its officially listed. I still need to finish the website, but right now all my pictures are taken so as to hide the windows since the blinds aren't up yet. Usually its not a case of choosing "between" applicants. Generally we have one at a time, we just have to determine if thwy are financially qualified and then everyone seems to have dogs. These places aren't big enough fir more than one dog or one much bigger than about 10 lbs. Yesterday we had a guy who wanted to make a "pen" for his dog on the upstairs landing so the dog could be outside whik e he was gone. That's not fair to the dog or the other tenants!

    We can't even think about our remodel unless the historical commission gives us the go ahead. We have that crazy lady next door vowing to fight us. The hearing is on July 8th so until then we have no idea.

    The Expo is about six weeis away. I joined a sorcerers group on FB and fiund out our exo starts Thurs at 9AM so we booked an extra night at the Hilton so we won't be late for check in amd shopping. We paid enough for these tickets, we better get everything out of them!

    Can you rent them before the blinds are up? I'm sure people will believe they are coming. I hope he gets them up soon though. You must be absolutely exhausted. I hope you and Fran are relaxing with a nice glass of wine tonight. :goodvibes



    I agree, thats too small of a space. :( Are your apartments in Long Beach? I have tons of local friends if you want me to spread the word? I'd be happy to post about them. ​



    Whats her ground for opposing the add on? You're building up correct? I hope the judge dismisses her concerns. Your plans sound terrific so far. I love the HM room idea. Its going to be incredible. ​


    :woohoo: I can't wait for your report. They are always so wonderfully detailed. You're staying at the Hilton? Is the expo at the Hilton too? ​

    We had a nice steak dinner with some friends and Groupon so life is good! :thumbsup2

    You can certainly post something, but let me get the website finished. These units are in Park Estates, and we want everything done before we hand the keys over. If someone fills out an application, we'll get them done before they get the keys.

    I have no idea what her grounds for opposing are, but if they aren't truly valid the judge will dismiss them. Our architect is already alerting the rep at the city that we have a "crazy lady" who will be opposing us.

    I will post a link on my PTR to the Expo TR, I've already started on the first post, but haven't worked on it since we went into high gear on the apartments. I hope we can get them done in the next couple days. This is driving me nuts, and there isn't much left that I personally can do. Most of it is on Darcy's brother who is putting up the blinds.

    I know exactly what you mean. The worst is when the holidays are right in the middle. By no means do I want to rush them by, but I want to get to that cruise!!! :hyper:

    I see, I see!!!!! Not great, not horrible. Good flight times going in; only 9 am and 2:30 pm going out....

    If we fly into FL should Joshua and I stay the night in FL or cab it to Miami and stay there as it'll be easier in the morning?

    Did you look for yours yet? :hyper:

    I still haven't decided what we're going to do after and today is the 7th month mark. Have you decided? I feel like a total spazz! :lmao:

    I love your coupons! You always know where to get the deals. It's awesome! Where did you go?​

    Park Estates? That's a nice area. They'll be rented in no time.​

    So she just filed a motion for a hearing? What a waste of everyone's time. I'm sorry she's stalling the process. Hopefully the judge fines her for wasting tax payer dollars on nonsense. ;)

    Thats what so hard, waiting on others. I know he has a job, any idea when he can get to it? Hopefully at least by the weekend at the latest. ​
