Moving this weekend! - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

 
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  We start moving on Friday, Nov 20th!  As I mentioned last week we are just moving to another building in the same complex!  I have a few days to get my whole apartment unpacked and put back together because I'm hosting a small Thanksgiving dinner at my new place!  ...and after Thanksgiving I'm decorating for Christmas! I can't wait!!!!
 
 I don't have much to share this week because my apartment is just full of boxes but I did snap this photo of Coco a couple weeks ago so I thought I would share that!  I miss her beautiful long hair but it's so high-maintenance having to brush her all the time.

A little more Autumn Decor and our upcoming move - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

 
 
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
 
 

I originally had some faux Autumn leaves in this centerpiece and I just wasn't feeling it.  They were very orange and although I love orange...I wear orange a lot, I just don't like how it looks in my home...

 
So I took out all those faux leaves and added white pumpkins and now I love it! 

 
Sometimes I just have to fiddle with things a little bit until I like it. 


 
Good news...we are moving next week but not far! We are just moving to another building in the same complex.  I live in a huge complex with over 800 units. The new building hasn't had any of the numerous issues I've had with this building.  The floor plan is just like we have now except it's a mirror image of ours and we will have a gas fireplace! We're on the ground floor now and only the units on the 2nd and 3rd floor have the fireplaces! Perfect timing...I'll have a mantle to decorate for Christmas!

Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

 
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This week has been a tough week here in our home.  I had to rush my daughter to the hospital on Saturday evening with a severe asthma attack.  She has on-going problems with asthma and twice before we ended up in the ER but this time was different, it was more severe.  Usually they treat her with the breathing treatments in ER and she's released. This time she had to spend two nights and two days in the hospital!  She was released from the hospital on Monday evening and thankfully she's doing much better now.  Asthma is such a scary thing to go through! 
 
Then Tuesday I caught a cold! Probably from getting run down due to lack of sleep!
 
This morning (Thursday) I went to leave for work in the morning and saw a puddle of coolant under my car! 
 
Now I'm stressed with hospital bills and car repair bills. Not to mention all the problems I've been having with this apartment!  I'm trying my best not to stress!
 
There is always good to be found though...I love this time of year.  The leaves are finally starting to change color in my area of California.  The nights are cooler.  I just love the coziness of this time to of year!  We even had rain last week.  We need the rain so badly here!
 
Hopefully soon I'll have something new to share but for now I'm just feel like I'm trying to keep up with life.
 
My goal...Get through the difficulties but still appreciate the beauty of this time of year!

Halloween Past and the crap I'm living with right now - Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

 
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! I've been busy watching the Giants in the World Series this week so I'm going to share some old Halloween décor photos from last year!


It was fun last year, pulling things from all over to make a pretty Halloween vignette!



 
I took some of these decorations to work this year and decorated my cubicle!
 
This year at home I haven't put any Halloween décor out, just Autumn-themed décor. 
 
****** 
I apologize in advance for this rant but this is what is consuming my life right now!
 
I think I mentioned I may have to move out my apartment that I just moved into in February of this year. I've been having so many problems here but the worst of it is I have rats in my ceiling space!  I've complained so much about this and many other problems (the water and/or the hot water has been shut off over 15 times since June because of their plumbing problems) and they have now allowed me to get out of my lease and get all my security deposits back.  I was happy until I started looking for a new place! The rent has gone up so much since I moved in here 8 months ago.  I'm not sure what to do next.  The offer they gave me was a verbal offer and I don't believe for a second that they are going to give me both my apartment deposit and my pet deposit back until I see it in writing!
 
 It seems really suspicious to me that I had been communicating via email daily and he made a point of setting up a time to tell me this offer over the phone!  I don't trust the management here at all. They have been telling me for months they are working on the problems and finally the water issue seems to be fixed but the rat problem is still there!  I've been talking to some of my neighbors and they are experiencing the same things I have!  What scares me the most is rats chew on the wiring in the ceiling and can cause fires! Our fire alarms have gone off and on a couple times for no reason. I think it's because of the rats chewing on the wires!
 
It's so bad...this is a gated community and I saw a clean-cut guy going through the mail that people threw out in the dumpsters! I called the security here and they told me to call the police! I called the police and waited over an hour and they never showed up! No wonder there is so much identity theft! No one cares! The guy was digging through paperwork and putting select things in his bag for over an hour! I even walked up to him and asked him if he was stealing people's identity and this was in the dark at 6:15 am!  He said no and mumbled something I couldn't understand and then reality set in and I thought I shouldn't really be confronting this guy in a dark parking lot all by myself!
 
  I'm going to look for a new place but it's not looking good right now!  Wish me luck!
 
Again...sorry for the rant but it just feels good to get it off my chest! I admire bloggers that are real and don't make their lives seem perfect...right now mine is far from perfect!
