Today was a hectic day. I spent the night at my brother’s, and got ready to take Alexis with me to address a couple of bills, and hopefully, help her with getting her notebook to connect to the home network. It however didn’t work that way. Instead, the computer will still not connect to the wifi network even though my notebook was able too. Instead, it will seem as if she will need a USB – RJ45 adapter. This adapter will plug into the USB port and allow a networking cable to plug in.
Gage also went with me and I got him some credit on his cellular phone which allows him to make and receive calls. He also wanted a toy which I contributed a little towards that. And of course, since I had them for a good portion of the morning, and a part of the afternoon, I managed to get them something to eat for lunch which they enjoyed. On the way back home, we stopped at a local pharmacy to pick up cough medicine for Xavier.

Monday January 31 came and went, and I have not moved into an apartment I spent the last 5 weeks trying to get. The problems seemed to lie with the landlord which will seem to be more of a problem than good. One may wonder what makes me think that. So, I guess I should start with the basics that started on 23rd of December, and seem to be going on as we speak.
First, I looked at the apartment on the 23rd of December. While it was not the best, it was acceptable for the needs and the price that he noted. I looked at the apartment, it has a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. There was no real discussion on the rent, however I still had one place to consider which did not worked out. I of course let him know one way or another. This is of course something I did.

Today was a very hectic day. First, I had to go to the Section-8 office. It will seem as if the landlord I was expecting to rent from didn’t do what he was supposed too, or decided to screw me over which needless to say was not a benefit to me. I went to the Section-8 office, shown the lease, and it would seem as if there was very little they could do except offer a means of getting new moving papers. The case worker from Section-8 also informed me that if the current landlord/reality company if they can send a fax so they would be able to cover the rent for their portion next month.
I also went to the post office to pick up any mail I had, went to the library to pick up a couple of things, and made a call to cancel the electricity order with Duquesne Electric. I called the manager of the current apartment, but couldn’t reach her. As I returned home, I prepared for the worst. I however hoped for the best. I managed to reach my manager about 1PM which she was more than willing to help out. She sent the fax, and sent me a copy through the maintenance person.

Today could have been better. I waited for the landlord to call, which he hasn’t. If he causes me to not have a place next month (3 days away), I will do everything in my power to bring it to Section-8’s attention. However, it will seem as if I might just be forced into being homeless. However, that will be for another day. I went to Chris and Andie’s earlier, but didn’t stayed much. I eventually caught a 54C back home, and bought some iced tea.
Otherwise, not much went on. I watched some podcasts, and a couple of episodes on Netflix. I am also waiting for Netflix to send my disc which is due tomorrow. I eventually took a bath, and went to rest in my bed while watching a podcast, and writing this blog posting. On some lighter notes, I am completely satisfied with the notebook that I bought earlier this month. If HP keeps up with what they provide for me, I will definitely keep my preference to HP.

Today could have been a better day. I am trying to get a lease with the current proposed landlord which I wouldn’t be so focused on getting it if I had time. The last day of the month is right after the coming weekend which means that there is 4 days to get everything taken care of including signing a lease, and moving. Since this proposed landlord has been moving extremely slow on doing much of anything, I am loosing confidence even though I done everything I needed too. If nothing comes through by Monday, I will have to cancel my service for electric, and have everything in a storage room which is only going to hurt me in the long run.
Otherwise, the day has been relatively quiet with a great deal of pain with the ankles (which doesn’t help anything). I of course made dinner, and transferred files from the old computer to the notebook which is good considering I may only have the notebook to rely on exclusively. I also wrote a blog posting on my other blog site ( http://word.fsp.name/blog/ ) which discusses my thoughts on Hulu considering on going into the internet based cable service.

Today was a busy day. I met with the proposed landlord, and he gave me the documentation that was needed, but wasn’t filled out properly. In addition, he gave the lease which is different from the documentation which means I can’t sign that one. If it is not one thing, it is another. In any case, Section-8 did call him, and will send me some documents in a few days. Afterwards, I had to go to the post office to check my mail, and make sure everything is OK with the bank. I also finished the transfer of my music to the new PC, and rated everything properly – although many of the songs do not have the album art it should have, and that for me is more of an annoyance.
In addition, I created restore discs for the new PC, and added a couple of more programs to the computer. Otherwise, things have been much the same. As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to run a couple of errands. I will also have to make some phone calls, and will have to return a call that I received late at night. Tomorrow will be a bit of a busy day though.
