A Day Late...

I wish that I had a bit more time right now to spend updating my journal but am buried alive in paperwork at the moment and until I've got all of it even semi organized, I really can't spare too much time for recreational pleasures. I imagine, though, that by the end of the week, I should be all caught up and if everyone around here is correct, September and May are the two stupidly busy months for rental properties that its all smooth sailing from now through the next eight months. Apparently we've survived the absolute worst and have been told that by next week, we won't know what has hit us as we'll suddenly have loads of spare time on our hands.

Sounds simply marvelous to me. Our training period is more or less complete now also. We both feel more than comfortable in our new positions as well as working within the confines of this company, our employer. For September, we had nineteen units vacate plus twenty one move in. This was all done over a five day period for the most part too, which meant a near week of sleepless nights as the units that were vacating had to be made ready for the new tenants. Now by made ready I mean that they all had to be painted, carpets steam cleaned or replaced plus the unit had to be thoroughly cleaned. They all had to be made to appear brand spanking new just like a virgin!

Now I've just got to tidy up all of the paperwork related to the new tenants and address some minor issues here and there from some of the units and I'll be all done. Sweet. Can't wait to be able to really sit down to my computer and get caught up with all of the journals that I read as well as make this one a little bit more current. Looks like I'll have loads of time soon as for October I've just got two units to worry about - not twenty one!

Just came across your blog by way of EJ's. I have a son on MM and it was good to read something positive about the affect it had on someone else's life. I will check back again. Thanks for your honesty.

BTW ... I just noticed your "Altered States" section on the sidebar ... it has GREAT info on it! I have never seen some of those sites before, in fact, most of them. I've been sitting here learning so much. Thanks for providing it! :D
