A Different Decision

All I have to say is check the dates:




I have had a long and cruddy weekend up through this week. Friday I had the house clean for Launa's birthday party. Then we had the party on Friday and Saturday. Sunday was Sunday, I think everyone's house throws up on Sunday. Monday I had 2 classes and homework. The homework got done in plenty of time, but I had to submit my paper to this thing (OV checker) that checks your paper against all the others in the database to check and see if I've plagiarized. It was only supposed to take 1 1/2 hours, but it took much longer. My teacher is a stickler for making sure papers are in on time, so at Midnight central time (1 am Eastern) I still didn't have my OV score back and had to turn it in as is. I decided I had better wait for my OV score to come through so that I could rework and resubmit if my paper went over. It was past 2 am before my score came back. And my paper was fine. So I didn't get to bed until 2 am, then Launa heard me come upstairs and wanted to sleep with me. I let her, but then I couldn't sleep, so finally at 3 I put her back in her own bed. So I didn't get to sleep until 3 am. I got up at 6:45 to get Daniel ready for school. I was really freakin' tired today, and I ended up napping for a while. Then I had to feed Launa lunch and we were supposed to get her pics back at the studio today, but their computer crashed and they weren't able to submit the pics that day, so they won't be in until the 17th. Then I had to get Daniel from school. Then we went out for about an hour as a family and when we got back, the yellow notice was in the door. Now, I don't know what day it is for the REST of you, but the last time I checked, today was the 10th of March. They did NOT have my permission to enter my house today, and if they had come when I was HOME, I would have told them to come back on the 16th, like their letter said they would. This was entering my house without proper notice, and without my permission. My privacy has been invaded, and if this goes on my record with the Housing Authority, we are going to have problems. My house was not clean today. Guess what? Life happens. I guarantee there is not one person who works at the housing authority that has not had a messy house at one time or another. If they had come at the proper time, I would have been prepared for them. ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!!#$#%^&%^$#@%^&*(^%$#%^&*()&^%$#@

Update: It is now 1 am, and I can't sleep because I am so upset about this stupid thing. I have gotten very little sleep this week, and tonight's lost sleep is unappreciated to a degree I doubt many people could even fathom. I am frothing at the mouth, I want to speak to someone NOW.

Jerks! Idiots! Morons! I would complain to the apartment manager who I imagine is the real one to blame since he got the dates wrong!

Yeah, I just got back from the office after talking to the lady there. I showed her the two papers I posted here and the card they send around quarterly that shows the dates of the insect guys. She hadn't known about the typo on the bug spray card, but no, the dates were supposed to be Monday through next Friday. If I had looked at my Official Etowah Area Housing Authority calendar, or paid attention to the dates in the monthly newsletter, I would have known about it, so technically, I had notice that they would be entering. I told the lady that I don't make it a habit to leave my house a mess but that life happened this week, and if I had known that they would be coming, I would have made it a priority to have the house ready for them. She was cool about it. She said that the yellow paper doesn't mean anything, and if they had left a different type of notice (a write-up, or something) that would have been cause for concern. I guess it wasn't bad enough to be officially written up, so it wasn't put into our file. So I feel better, though I'm still not happy.

i hate when i think some one else is to blame and some of it end up being my fault.(i mean the dates not the messy house) every ones house gets out of wack from time to time, especially if you have young kids. sound like it was a good party, still not cleaned up 5 days later. must have been a real blow out.

If you'd read the whole thing you would know that I had things going every day after the party.

MC it's so hard to go to school especially when you have to write. I feel your pain! I can't imagine going to school with kids. I don't know how you do it!
