I need to take a breather from the negativity. Yes, it’s still all around me; but I’m not accomplishing anything by stewing over it. I did get some good news today. Texas law states that the rental company could come after me for the entire rent, even though her name is on the lease, too. But, since I have such a long history with them, they told me to just pay my portion and they’ll go after her for the rest. I was really worried that I’d be left holding the bag on it all. Now I just need to contact the pest control company. That’s in both our names, too.
On another good note, I only have 1.5 weeks left of school. It will be very good to get that stress off of me. I can use a month to relax, decorate for Christmas, bake, start actually cooking meals instead of just nuking them in the microwave. I know Jamie’s looking forward to that, too. It will be good to be able to sit down and read whenever I want to, instead of fretting over the homework I’m ignoring in order to be able to do some pleasure reading.
Since R moved out, this also means I can move Jamie’s stuff around, and actually sort through and see what to keep and what to get rid of. I can use one of the spare bedrooms as a sorting room for all his toys. He may not like it, but some of his junk has got to go. I’ll be sorting through my junk, too. It’s time to declutter and start fresh – just in time to get more junk for Christmas! LOL
