The rest of the crew went fishing while I sat at the apartment

I have some pretty good friends.

I got hurt on the job a couple of weeks ago and they came to the hospital to pick me up after I got a cast on my leg.

They even rallied together to pay my rent for the next month so I don’t have to worry about much at all. Of course, they didn’t cancel the spring camping trip that we take every year. We were all supposed to go camping last weekend together. I was the person that made the plans. I got us reservations at the State Park and I had sites that were right on the river. The river sites are incredibly hard to get, especially for more than two nights in a row. I was proud of myself for making the reservations early, so we could enjoy fishing on the river each morning and night. When the weekend was getting closer, I realized that my friends were still planning to go. I asked them to wait until I was feeling better, but they did not want to wait until the end of 6 weeks because fishing season would be over. I mostly understood why they didn’t cancel, but I was still really bummed out. When the guys left the house, they gave me the remote control for the smart thermostat. They brought me a cooler with two bags of ice and a 12 pack of beer. The guys turned the AC down to 72 so it was cold in the house and they left for the lake. I ordered some pizza and adjusted the thermostat to a lower temperature. I was going to be cold and comfortable while they were gone.

My idea of relaxing is video games and the AC

My boyfriend and I have vastly different ideas of what relaxing should be like.

We met a couple of months ago and we have a good relationship but we don’t enjoy a lot of the same activities.

My boyfriend likes to be outdoors fishing, camping, and hiking. I would rather spend my time indoors playing video games, especially during the summer months when the temperatures are hot and scorching. My boyfriend wanted me to go camping with him last weekend. I asked him if there was going to be climate control and he laughed. He didn’t laugh when I told him that I wasn’t going to go camping unless I was staying in a cabin that had ac, a shower, toilet, and a comfortable bed. My boyfriend went camping without me. He had a good time with his friends, but I would have preferred that he stay at the house with me. I guess it might be a bad sign if we don’t enjoy some of the same activities. I would be willing to try camping if we could stay in a cabin with air conditioning. I guess it doesn’t have to have a bathroom or a television, but I don’t want to sleep in a tent and deal with ants, flies, and mosquitoes while suffering through the hot temperatures without any AC. That is just simply not my idea of fun and I don’t think that it ever will be. I don’t know what direction our relationship is headed, but I don’t think it’s anywhere near the state park.

The mold turned out to be worse than I thought

I was planning to rent that unit that next month, but I had to change my plans when I found out about the problems with the heating and AC unit

I was performing some routine maintenance on the HVAC unit in one of the house rentals that I manage. I knew I could save a couple of bucks by performing the routine service on my own. While I was cleaning the AC and condenser, I noticed a small amount of mold inside of the machine. I wasn’t concerned with the amount of mold until I started taking the rest of the machine apart. I knew that I had to contact a professional. I called a contractor that I know and trust. He came to the rental property to look at the AC unit. He confirmed what I already suspected. The AC unit was filled with mold. The mold extended through the house and there was mold inside of the wall behind the area where the heat pump and AC unit were located. The problem with the mold was way worse than I expected and the damages were quite severe. Insurance would only pay for damages to the wall and I had to fork out five grand for a new heat pump and ac. There was absolutely no way to safely salvage the system after it had been riddled with mold for so long. I was planning to rent that unit that next month, but I had to change my plans when I found out about the problems with the heating and AC unit. Those issues had to be addressed and fixed before I could let anyone move to the property. That month was another loss of $1650 bucks that I couldn’t replace.

I found some dust and dirt in the air vents that was red

During the Spring months I like to go around the house and clean all of the places that usually get missed.

This would include the air vents and the ductwork.

I remove all of the ductwork covers and I place them in a bath of warm soapy water. I like to use Dawn dish detergent. I think it cuts through all of the grease and grime and the Soapy Suds make it easier to wipe down each one of the vents after they have soaked for 30 minutes. I also use a long handled dusting broom to remove all of the dust and dirt inside of the ductwork. The telescoping handle is nearly 9 ft long and I can really get inside of the duct work. It makes me feel very organized when I get all of the ductwork and the air vents cleaned. It’s not something I do frequently, but I love the way the house smells when there is Lysol in the scent of every single one of the ducts. I was cleaning the duct work this spring and I was very surprised to find red dirt, dust, and lent that did not match anything in the house. The red dirt and dust was very strange and bizarre. I kept it out of the garbage can until my family could get home from school and work. I asked everyone if they knew what the red dots could be from and no one had an answer. I honestly still don’t know how that red substance ended up in the ductwork. It has bothered me since I cleaned and that was 5 months ago.
