Pac, you are not going mad

The public holiday is on the Monday, but Australia Day is always on the 26th January

We have been out for our walk, nice power walk, feeling good now

Have had morning tea, a later one, just a banana and a handful of almonds

Nearly time for lunch, nice homemade hamburger YUM!!

Then we are going to retire to the lounge room for a few hours and watch LOTR The Two Towers

Ahhh... much like many of our holidays have been moved to Mondays. Well, some of them
And here I've been watching my "sleeping puppies" calendar in wait of wishing you a happy holiday when it arrived

I am almost in tears. This clown of a painter that the management company hired left a mess behind. I have been doing a walk through all day listing all the items he got paint on that wasn't a wall or ceiling. He used no drop cloths. Everytime I touch or go to use something, it has splatter of paint on it. My brand new wheelchair that I haven't even got to use yet. My daughter bought it for me so she could take me shopping for clothes and other outings. I just can't walk more than ten feet without stopping and resting my hip and spine. It is covered with splatter paint from the rollers on the ceilings. My vacuum cleaner. My dead daughter's picture. And on and on. Who the hell is going to clean up this mess. I know I can't do it. And I certainly don't want this clown back into my home to do more damage.

Management is coming Monday morning to do a walk through. They better not have him with them. I have an open word document and everytime I find another thing with paint on it, it gets added to the list.

Addie, I am so sorry to here this. I know how upsetting that can be, specially when you can't do anything about it. I hope you can get it straightened out with the management company.
