Ok so its been awhile since i blogged i was getting good at checking all the time when i was at work, well as luck would have it i got layed off on the 25 of August. Its not necessarily a bad thing. Kurtis and i had been praying about weather it was time for me to be at home for awhile and i was really starting to dread september becuase i was supposed to be going back full time. The good part of it was that it was simply becuase the company is down 70% for those who don't know i used to work for the 2nd largest commercial mortgage company in salt lake city. Also with them laying me off they acutally paid me through sept. 15th like i went back full time in september. also my insurance is paid for through the end of september so until i can get on kurtis'. also i could try and collect unemployment. Plus i didn't have to quit i'm not very good at it. anyway life since then has been a bit of a trial. i'm hopeing that means that we'll be due for some good times soon. Not that having a baby isn't the best time but we could use some good time here soon.
As fate would have it i got sick right after i lost my job i figured it was just a flu or something so didn't go to the dr until yesterday. I've been having these rediculous headaches and sore ears bad fevers and night sweats and chills.
now the worst thing that has happened of late is that our apartment was flooded by the upstairs guys toilet tank last tuesday. And our sorry exuse for a landlord wouldn't let us call a cleaning crew to clean it up since he is away in oregon and just asked if we would clean it up ourselves. normally i wouldn't mind but this was toilet water and a ton of it. our entire hall was soaked we had to tear up the carpet we wanted to remove the padding underneath but he wouldn't let us. as i was explaining it to our landlord he told me i didn't know what i was talking about that there wasn't possibly any fecal material in the water becuase the guy upstairs told him so. now i might beleive the guy upstairs except he ran into the back of kurtis' car with his truck and when we confronted him about it he said no no i didn't do that. and you can only understand about every 3rd word out of his mouth. anyway our cealing was soaked we had water coming from one of the light sockets and part of the cealing in our bathroom fell down. when kurtis talked to the landlord to complaine a little and tell him where we were coming from the landlord told him if you don't like it "get your a** out". now this upset us even more knowing that our landlord is lds and we're pretty sure he is a temple worker. anyway he called me back the next day and apologiezed forever but still wouldn't let us tear up the padding or get it professionally cleaned. I asked kurtis if he wanted to file a complaint with the health department becuase i had talked with them about it he said no we would take the high road. so now i'm living in a stinky apartment part of the cealing in the bathroom is missing and i can't breath at night because of the smell and i'm sick. also i'm pretty sure it has giving me a rash. Kyler seems to be ok we try to stay out of it as much as possible during the day. and the smell is almost gone but my electric bill is going to be outrageous this month, and i can't walk on the carpet in the hallway with barefeet. my home doesn't feel like a place to relax or even a place i want to be. i'm so done renting. anyway sorry for the rant.
