Random Stuff

I'm having a tough day that started with waking up with a migraine. I really needed to run to the grocery store to get a couple things so I went ahead and showered and got out of the house. It's oddly warm today in the upper 40s so I started getting that spring cleaning feeling. That actually ended up being a bit of a blessing as I needed to do some light cleaning around our windows.

You see, when we first moved into this apartment a little more than 2 years ago it was our dog's first experience with apartment living. She has some anxiety issues and is super protective of us and our space. It didn't take long for her to destroy the bottom of the blinds that stood between her and her ability to see outside. We've known we would be responsible for replacing the blinds when we moved out. Now more than 2 years later the people at the apartment complex have decided it is an eye sore and needs to be addressed right away. We really don't mind doing that, but we spent a couple hours just a month ago putting up that shrink plastic stuff to better seal out the cold. It didn't bother them for the last 2 years but now suddenly it's quite pressing. All we wanted was another couple months when we will be taking the plastic down anyway. But they are unwilling to be flexible.

Now I'll have to redo all of that. The maintenance guys will come and actually replace the blinds but I needed to clean around the windows and first thing in the morning I'll take the plastic off. Then we'll have to start over with the plastic. I'm kind of dreading the whole process because it means taking down the room darkening shades and spending too much time in front of the big bright windows.

Anyway, I'm glad for the motivation from the warmish day but now I just feel so nauseous and am not sure I'm making much sense so I'll just sign off for the day. I hope you ladies are doing well.


  1. I am so sorry you aren't feeling well. Did the migraine start before or after you heard from the apartment complex about your blinds? I hope you aren't stressing too much about this.

  2. no, it developed overnight - just for the fun of it.
