Flood thru the ceiling (not mine at least)

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Did I say already that the upstairs tenant came at 10:30 last nite cuz the lady over her was taking a shower and it rained in her apt. So, can you imagine what ensured? Anyway, then this a.m. at 8:30,woke up to same thing.... so she and her friend spent the day ripping out their ceiling after she found a cat looking at her out of the ceiling hole made last nite., And then we discovered where the kitty was using pottie at... oh crap, shall we say? Her and her friend spent the whole day knocking down the rest of the ceiling and taking the gyproc outside, and for that my bro gave them $20 each.. I think it is such a major rip=off. He was only going to pay her, I told her she could get a friend to help too. (I wasn't doing it for free, which is what bro would have expected... learned that lesson when I painted this whole apt...with his dd)He claims he could have done it in 3 min... anybody out there know how long or how much it should be to knock down a 11 ft. x 10 ft ceiling...? Now it has to dry out a couple days before someone can put a new ceiling in. But we did finally find out, after 4 floods, that there was a small pipe broken and bro's buddy did fix that... we hope.

And for this stress I get 1/2 rent...... wake up Lila, there's gotta be a better way... so trying to function on about 5 hrs. sleep again today, I'm getting too old for this...

Well, amidst all this, we did watch Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen last nite, and finished watching The Last Knight (with Richard Gere.... hot, hot, hot!)
Started on my book club book today, really need a good sleep... even he bubble baths, are only making me think of falling asleep in them!

    Oh dear! That is waaay too much on your shoulders to have to deal with, but glad to know you are not going to let brother take TOTAL advantage of you again.
