I need temporary housing after being wrongfully evicted from a furnished house

My previous landlord was a real snake.

When I first met him, he pretended to be the nicest guy in the world. Before I signed the lease, he kept telling me how he would be over there in minutes if I needed anything. He promised to fix anything wrong with the house, regardless of what it was. I was swayed in part because the house came furnished. At the time, I was limited on furniture. I had a desk, TV, and two mattresses. Renting a furnished house was definitely convenient for me. I loved the couch and the bed more than anything else in the house, especially after I came home from a tough day at work. But after I had a small issue with the bathroom sink, things started to fall apart. Instead of hiring a plumber, the landlord showed up with a tool box. I asked him if he used to be a tradesman, but he claimed to have learned everything regarding home maintenance off the internet. The sink kept leaking, so much so that I had to leave a bucket underneath the p-trap at all times. When the air conditioner started acting up, he managed to break the system attempting to fix it. I had to take him to small claims court when he refused to pay for a new air conditioner. That’s when he pulled all of my belongings out of the house while I was at work, put them on the side of the road, and then changed the locks. While I seek temporary housing, I am getting a lawyer to pursue civil damages against my former landlord. I was lucky that a family member agreed to let me sleep on the couch until I find long term housing.

Now that I work from home I started a beekeeping and honey hobby

When I was moved to remote work last year amid statewide lockdowns, I was unsure whether or not I’d like working from home. I’m a social person and sometimes I took advantage of my work hours to socialize with my favorite coworkers. Now that we work from home, the only socialization we all get is through an instant messenger. It was a huge surprise to me when I realized the other day that I actually prefer remote work and the feeling of peace I experience most days when things are too chaotic with my work agenda. One huge advantage to working from home is getting the chance to expand your hobbies. I have always been a musician, but recently I wanted to learn how to paint. I bought a kit from the store and started watching Youtube videos in my free time. I’m not Monet, but I am drastically better at painting than I was at the start. My most recent hobby is beekeeping and honey harvesting. I have four hives in my backyard that are almost always producing honey. Even though I probably make enough honey to sell it, I prefer to eat it myself and give the rest away to friends and family members. It’s nice making honey butter for holiday and birthday presents, especially for my parents who are obsessed with it now. I learned everything about beekeeping and honey from the internet and have never had any hands on help from another beekeeper. It has definitely been a trial and error process, but I’m happy with my bees and the delicious honey they produce.

I am against wasp and bee extermination because they help pollinate my garden

My brother is really adamant about his lawn and his house.

He uses fertilizer and manure on a monthly basis, runs his sprinklers multiple times a week, and is out there mowing and trimming every other day.

Like Hank from King of the Hill, my brother’s lawn is his hobby and his life. I don’t even know where he got it from, because neither of my parents took much interest in landscaping. They always had an outside company of some kind do it for them after I left for college and wasn’t around to do it myself anymore. I think he bought an expensive lawn mower after he landed his current job and he has developed the hobby out of a desire to make use of his investment. It’s common to want to use a new toy a lot after you buy it, so I suppose I can’t really blame him in the end. However, I was happy the other day when he told me about his appointment with the insect exterminator. I don’t really care about him spraying for ants and spiders, but I take issue with his treatment of his bees and wasps. I have a huge garden with a lot of flowers that desperately need to be pollinated or the buds won’t bloom. Because of my garden, I could never imagine a scenario where I would willingly kill wasps or bees in my yard as long as they weren’t swarming inside my house. Unfortunately, my brother hates all of them and will kill any kind of insect in his yard. It doesn’t matter what kind of bug it is, my brother will use heavy chemicals to completely wipe them out.

 

Yellow Jacket Extermination

My ex-husband left me no choice.

Toward the end of my marriage, my husband and I were fighting so badly that our neighbor had to call the police.

  • She said she was afraid one of us was going to get violent by the sound of our angry words.

I was hoping we could get one of those quickie divorces that only cost a couple hundred dollars. My ex-husband was playing hardball and refusing to give me a divorce. He said that if I wanted the divorce; I was going to need to hire a lawyer and pay for it. He was thinking he could use the same divorce lawyer I had, but he was wrong. I hired a divorce lawyer that was recommended to me by a friend. She told me her husband tried to pull the same stunt. He didn’t want to pay for a lawyer either. When I talked to the lawyer, he said he wouldn’t represent both the husband and the wife, unless they had no assets and no kids. We owned a house and had a son. He wanted nothing but visitation for our son, but he wanted the house. The divorce lawyer told me that since I was keeping full custody of our son, it entitled me to the house. I told him I was fine with selling the house and I could use my half of the money and buy a small home of my own. The divorce lawyer thought this was a good idea. My ex-husband gave me no choice but to force him to sell the house and play hardball.

I’m advertising all over

When I found numerous different print stores within a 10 mile radius, I was super relieved

I’m going to have a garage sale next week, although first I want to create signs and flyers to put around our village as preliminary advertising for the event. My hope is to generate enough interest in the preceding month so that I eventually sell as much as possible. I need to clear out junk from our house while quickly adding to the fund to buy an up-to-date roof. Lucky for me, I have an entire basement full of old, valuable junk that I can sell at our upcoming garage sale. My best friend is swinging by sometime the night before to help me organize everything and create price tags for the many products. Too bad, our label maker stopped finally working after I tried to use it last night. On top of that misfortune, our digital color printer is no longer communicating with our laptop. I finally spent several mornings trying to isolate the problem to no avail. I don’t have money for getting an up-to-date label maker, nor can I afford an up-to-date digital color printer. If I want signs and price tags for finishing our garage sale, I have no option however to get them made at a local print and copy store before the event. These locations usually offer a wide variety of printing services, from all sorts of digital color label printers to larger printers used to create banners for local businesses. I finally decided to consult with the internet to find printing repair information in our area. When I found numerous different print stores within a 10 mile radius, I was super relieved. If a single of the printing locations is too high-priced, I have other choices as a backup.

Should I switch to the trainer with climate control?

I have been training my dog agility work for about a year now.

He is getting really good at it and we finally had our first trial.

Of course we did terribly. My dog forgot everything he had learned. That is to be expected. The excitement of the actual trial can do that to people and pets. I did find out something very interesting though. I found out that the place where the trials were held also does agility training. Don’t get me wrong. I love my trainer. The only problem is that my current agility classes are all held outdoors. This means that there is no climate control. The sun beats down on us in the summer and the wind whips around in the winter. It is not pleasant. This new place has climate control. The trials were all held indoors with the air conditioner running. It was very nice and comfortable. I think I would look forward to training in a facility like this all summer long. I have to admit, I have not been looking forward to training again in the summer months. I really like my air conditioning. Having to run around for an hour, with no air conditioning, is very taxing. Another advantage in this new place is that my dog might do better at the next trials if he trains in the same place where the trials are held. I just don’t know though. Like I said, I really like my regular trainer. Besides, she goes to the trials with her dogs. I might feel weird meeting her after switching to a place with climate control. On the other hand, I really have to do what is best for me and my dog.

Wedding boutique need commercial HVAC

I finally found the perfect location for my wedding boutique store. I have been selling out of my home for the past year but I know I would do a lot better with a physical store. I was just waiting for the perfect location. Well I found it. It is close to the little boutiques downtown. The building is brick and has been abandoned for a few years so I got it for an excellent price. The best part is that I don’t have to fix it up all that much. I am going to roll with the rustic look. One thing I couldn’t skimp on, however, was the HVAC system. The existing HVAC system was in terrible shape. There was no way it was going to start running again. Instead, I hired a commercial HVAC provider to come over and show me some of the commercial HVAC systems for sale and to give me recommendations. It is important to have good humidity control in a wedding store. Otherwise, dresses worth thousands of dollars can be ruined by mold. Nobody wants that. I really like that the HVAC supplier really listened to what I wanted before making HVAC recommendations. We went back and forth a bit before deciding on the perfect commercial HVAC system for my wedding boutique. The installation did not take too long. Now I just have a few more repairs to do and then I will be ready to set up shop. I can’t wait. I can already picture how this building will look once it is full of dresses and other wedding necessities. I hope to have it all ready just in time for the summer weddings.

Getting a reusable HVAC filter is the perfect solution for me

When we moved for my wifey’s job I didn’t realize how far off the beaten path we would be residing.

Her future managers told us there was no industry nearby but I didn’t realize they meant that there was literally nothing, then you can’t even get internet out here unless it is satellite internet, then the closest store is over an hour away so there truly is nothing to do out here. Thankfully I like spending time in nature. However, on Wednesday I noticed that the air filter in our new house needed adjusting, and I went into the neighborhood for a new filter and, believe it or not, I forgot the air filter! I got a bunch of groceries, some gardening supplies, and no air filter. That meant that I had to make another trip into the neighborhood on Friday. I can’t risk letting the heating and A/C system get ruined, after all. Well, when I got to the store I noticed that their air filter supply was entirely limited. They mostly had cheap air filters. They did have a reusable air filter. I had never heard of a reusable air filter before. I took advantage of the store’s wifi and looked up reusable air filters to see if they were any good. I discovered that they are, reusable air filters can last up to 10 years. You just disinfect them off every week or so. This is perfect! Now I won’t have to worry about forgetting to buy an air filter again in the foreseeable future. I can just rinse this one off. That’s perfect.

I can just rinse this one off
