There's so much going on!

I don't know where to begin!  Life has been having its way with me.  I am doing my best to hang on.  Work is busy.  My tenants are moving out of my rental property.  I'm afraid of the scale.  I still haven't started on my roof.  My youngest daughter's birthday is NEXT week and I have planned NOTHING.

I've barely blogged.  I've barely read blogs.  If I am reading, I should be doing other things.  My house looks like a bomb went off.

Remember how I was all excited last week about exercising a bunch extra?  Well, Matthew fixed his car (after being parked about 15 months) and so now I'm just doing my "normal" exercise.  I feel like a slug.  Yesterday I had a meeting at church and I thought about riding my bike, but I decided against it.  It was raining...excuse, excuse.  I was a slug.  Yes, I'm still walking every morning and riding my bike to work twice a week, but I pretty much quit doing all the extra stuff.

I'm afraid of the scale.  Like irrationally afraid.  I've lost weight consistently following the same food plan I am following, but for the last month my weight has bounced around.  Last week I was down slightly, but I'm afraid to get on the scale tomorrow.  I hate that it still has so much power over me.

My tenants are moving out.  I am trying not to freak out.  I need to get it re-rented very quickly.  Ack!  Please say a little prayer that I get great tenants/neighbors (I live next door).  I can't afford to lose any rent or spend a bunch of money on repairs and renovations.  

Work is getting crazy.  Stupid job.  Why can't I be paid to read and write blogs all day?  I'd be perfect for that job!  Allergan?  Are you reading this?  I have your product installed in me and I've lost all my extra weight?  Hire me to read and write blogs!

Okay...I better get back to work!

I am curious about owning a rental property. We have an elderly couple who live next door to us and (I know this is heartless) I've thought it might be good for us to buy their property when they pass, assuming it goes up for sale.

If that ever comes to pass, can I email you?

Good luck on getting good new tenants immediately!

I'm praying about the rental situation. Hang in there with everything else too.

I hope you get that special renter. I think it's time to delegate some of those chores to someone else if possible!

I am praying you will get your property rented fast right away to good people who will be great renters. My weight has also bounced around alot the last month, actually more...it's so frustrating! and I think I will always be tied to my scale...I hope you have an amazing day!

I'll send tenant thoughts your way if you sen dlandlord thoughts mine. I need to find a place by June 1 with reasonable rent and a landlord who's willing to see past a foreclosure. Too bad we don't live closer.
