Changes Around The House

The beginning of March brings changes to the house we live in. The current landlord has sold the house, and the new owners take possession in a couple of days. In the meantime, the people above us are moving out today. We've had some issues with them over the past few months, so we're sort of glad to have them move along. But you never know what you're going to get in their place.

In this instance, the new owners are moving in upstairs. They are an older Iranian couple I believe, and as the owners, I expect they'll have more respect for the building and it's occupants than other renters.

The only disadvantage for us now is that we will lose our free laundry perk. The current landlord gave us the keys to the laundry lock boxes so not only is our own laundry free, but we've been collecting the money from the upstairs tenants (a small repayment for our trouble). So, I'm doing as much laundry as I can while it's free... five loads this morning! We're totally taking advantage of it last minute and washing some of the smaller blankets, and anything else that could use it.

Living in this place has been one change after the next, but I guess that's how it is when you're in a rental situation with multiple people. We look forward to seeing how things work out, and if anything interesting happens... you will hear about it, of course.

Nice to hear that you are picking up some of the house hold duties while you are at home!!

Might as well wash everything while it's free....good idea! Maybe you could mention that you get free laundry now, and you'd like it to continue?! ;D
