Our forecast for this week! We have bright sunshine today after a few storms Saturday night and an overcast day yesterday.
I know so many of you are decorating for St. Pat's, Easter, Spring, etc. That inspiration hasn't hit me yet! :) I am loving some bright and happy colors right now though. A fuchsia pink (unheard of for me), beautiful buttery yellow, lime green and a grape color. This happened to me last year, however, I didn't do anything about it but add a couple of touches of yellow & lime green. Oh, I almost forgot...I did spray paint an outside table grape. My mind is churning with ideas though ~
Some of you are aware that I moved here in a rush in Nov, 2010 after being assaulted at the place I was living. Things are discouraging here now. There is a couple that live upstairs with their 11-12 yr old son. They are very disrespectful regarding noise and being considerate of others. Also, the son is one that runs and jumps! Horrendous noise ~ :( When they have company, there are other kids similar in age and size and they're all wild. I've left them notes, gone up there and asked for quiet. I cannot tell you how many times I've called the office, emailed them or gone over there. The previous manager stated 3 complaints and they're out. Sadly, she's gone and the current manager, A, does nothing except turn it over to the Assistant Manager. A did advise me that they are working with them to move them to a lower level for the same price. (The woman wants to move, the man does not. Oh, and they've had another child!) I told A it was ridiculous that anyone had to move due to them NOT disciplining the son. The weekends are horrid! For the past 2 weeks, they've awakened me from midnight to 1:00 a.m. ~ IF I'm already asleep. I told the Manager and the next level that I have surpassed my tolerance and requested a change in my lease.
Lord knows, I hate the idea of moving but this is miserable! I do have a beautiful view with lots of trees but it isn't compensating for the noise and all the leaks I've had here. If you're so inclined, I'd appreciate your good thoughts and prayers for me to find the "perfect" place!
For those of you that upholster furniture, I'd love some hints and suggestions ~ tutorials or help! ;-) I'm thinking I'd like to change my red love seat to a neutral color. I have NO idea where to even begin. It's in great shape and I know I wouldn't get much for it if I tried to sell it. We all want bargains, don't we?
