Closing Day

Well, the old house will be gone by the end of the day. There will be no more playing on the hill, no more mowing the terraces. The boys will miss this old place, just as hubby and I are. It feels like we are living in a stranger's house and in a way, we are.

We have had some problems here with getting the refrigerator fixed. It is still freezing food and I'm down packs of insulin and groceries. The landlady just doesn't seem to understand that a refrigerator is a necessity of life. We have lived here since October 3, and have had a working fridge about five days out of that time, if that.

I think I've had patience with this woman up until this point. Now I'm getting really angry. It's stressing me out with all the food and insulin loss and this woman just doesn't get why I'm upset with her. She says we've had a fridge the entire time and the fridge has been here, yes, but a working way.

We will see what happens from here. One worry off my mind by the end of the day will be the old place but come spring I expect we'll be looking for another new place.


  1. I am so happy you sold your house! I can't believe your landlady will not fix the fridge. Do you have a place you can report her?

  2. I'm sorry too. This sometimes happens when one rents. We've done that and sometimes we've had good luck and others not...I bet if it was leaking water that would ruin the floor she might act. I hope things change soon.

  3. Happy for you on the sale of your house. Hope the refridgerator gets fixed soon.

  4. That's one reason why I'll never rent. What a pain. And the landlords always seem to make up excuses. Around here we have a TroubleShooter where we can write in or call in a report on things that don't get worked out with landlords, owners, services. And, usually by the end of the next day, it's all taken care of...wish you could do the same in Canada.

    PS...that Cole is just a dollface!!

    Got another post up this morning the 1st of many from our trip. And now, I'm gettin' offline to get busy decorating.

  5. Nice answers in return of this matter with genuine arguments and describing all regarding that.
