All good things must come to an end....

For the past month, we've been getting rent and the tenants have stayed away. (Love that arrangement!) There's been a slow moving in of furniture, repair/upgrade requests, but we've basically had the run of This Old Chicago 2 Flat. (of course, we honored their tenancy and weren't hanging out in their unit, but the laundry room, front hall, etc. were all ours. I didn't have to pay attention to whether I was calling for Glenn in another room, wearing my shoes over hardwood, stepping on creaks...)

Well, last night the two tenants took up permanent residence. One (I'm assuming) arrived late late at night from California. (we still haven't met her, but will do so tonight). Her flight was supposed to get in after 11 and we were long asleep.

I'm really hoping that it all works out. Fingers crossed.

Oh No !! The first two weeks you'll be hearing alot of pounding ( hanging pictures, shelves, sheets over windows ) thats always the worse for me !! I "lost" a box of drywall screws once, and a year later discovered the new tenant had used them with a hammer to hang EVERYTHING

I have a three flat.

Drink alot, and nows the time to experiment with drugs .....

Be there when they get their cable or land phone lines installed, installers always want to run cable across your baseboard trim pounding in nails every 10" make the installer run the cable outside or work with him to hide it and minimise the damamge.
