Landlord came by today and can you all guess what he fixed, kiddies? That's right... nothing. I mean, he made minor attempts but nothing is done, except that he took all of the glass hangy dealies off the chandelier in the living room. Who puts a chandelier in the living room anyway? I guess he's going to come back at some point and put in a new ceiling fixture and hope that fixes the problem.

As for the microwave, which is of the over-the-stove variety, he does not want to replace that. He's planning on taking it out and putting in a hood vent. Now, obviously landlords aren't obligated to provide a microwave, so there isn't much we can do about that and we do have a microwave stored in the basement from when we moved in. Thank goodness for that. However, we have almost zero counter space in the kitchen and slamming a microwave up there is going to make food preparation fucking ridiculous.

He also let us know that he wants to sell the house... He said probably next year. (I don't know why not this year.) He was trying to sell it before we moved in and settled on renting it because he wasn't able to get out of it what he wanted. Maybe it will work out for him this time? I don't know. I know I wouldn't buy this house. But that's just me.

But that's not our problem and hopefully we'll be moving soon! We're operating off of that hope and are going to be planning to move. I don't know when it will happen but we're going to start packing up the non-necessary items now and donating those things that we don't love enough to move. We figure it's best to be prepared and work towards that goal!

Oh, and there is still a hole in the basement wall from when the basement flooded 2+ years ago and caused mold in the wall.

Our landlord is coming over tomorrow at noon. We'll see what he fixes. I'm going to guess... not much.

So annoying but we're month to month here now, so we're just riding it out until we're able to make a move. Not sure when that will be but we don't want to move multiple times or get caught up in another lease. Definitely not feeling the love for this house though.

Today I shampooed the steps down into the basement (Why, oh why are they carpeted when the basement is tiled and the area in front of the basement door is hardwood?) They were looking terrible because Benny loves to barf on the stairs. He's the sweetest. It was a pain to do but they look a ton better. Not perfect but way, way better.
