I’m Back

Been away from the C.L. awhile because I had to move my phone/dsl service from old address to new and we moved this past weekend. It was only 5 days I was away but felt like an eternity. Probably was the longest I ever been away from this place since I joined.

The move went ok. We drafted my daddy to help. My old man got some strength. Sad to say but I wasnt much help. Most of my furniture is heavy and the boxes I packed was too heavy to lift. I felt bad that I really was not much help, but everytime I tried to lift a box to help. Baby just gave me a look….and I sat it back down Poor daddy . We wore him out. I felt soo bad I kept asking daddy you ok you wanna take a break. You need some water? Oh man..come to think of it I need to call him again and thank him profusely. We would not have been able to do it without him. Well when we moved into our old apartment it was just me and baby. We got some heavy azz furniture and I swear it was not easy. Baby was easier on daddy than he was on me..a lot nicer. Very frustrating…a lot of heavy lifting I did that time. Daddy was alot of help. And he had to take that heavy headboard and dresser up a curving staircase. I know it was hard work.

After all that I only came out with one broken item and that was my computer desk. Baby was frustrated “man you done broke it” “you dont broke it” Dad apologized ..I didnt even care. I just felt bad for working my daddy that hard. I know they was tired. Moving is not easy. Afterwards baby said he can probably fix the desk. I was like or buy a new one, but then I forgot that he bought me that desk soo…… It didnt help that it was like 30 degrees outside. Going on March and we just now getting some winter weather. But it was that cold rainy weather.

But now its over..just alot of unpacking..straightening..still got to the 28th of this month to get back to the old apartment and clean that place out. Come to think of it i need to stop by there soon to check on the place. I came home yesterday and baby had fixed the living room. Furniture all in place..curtains up..Bedroom set almost put together. My baby moves fast. I was like dang dont i have a say in where everything goes.. Then like Aww never mind this place looks a mess do what you do. Just let me decide where the pictures gonna go.

Took the day off today to try to knock some of it out. I put the kitchen together. Really dont like how the cabinets are made but every thing is coming together nicely Until next time ….



A lot of Work

We were able to gain access to the townhome on Tuesday and lets just say it needed a lot of work, but we are almost done. I have shopped at Home Depot in one day more than I have ever shopped their in my entire life. Painting is hard work. Then I went back to the store to get the paint that I thought was Wedding White but turned out I actually had gotten Off White the first time and ya know paint cant be returned once you have them mix it. I thought I was going to go in that place and show my color but It was cool. All it took was a little, not much, insistance. Mgr was real cool about it so that was great.

I am soo ready for this month to be over with. Sometimes I wish I was that lady off of Bewitched that can just snap her fingers and wiggle her nose and everything is just magically fixed to her liking. I told Baby I wanted to move our stuff in this weekend. Why did I tell him that because now he is moving like Speedy Gonzalez in the new townhome and I am sitting her in the old apartment not able to catch up. I still have soo much left to pack and I am sitting her messing around on the computer….

In the old apartment I called the office for them to fix some stuff before we move out and they havent fixed it yet. I guess once they receive notice that you are moving out and receive your last month rent they dont give a damn about you. Probably planning on sending me a bill in the mail for it after I move out. Shitty apartments..

Talked to Amy yesterday. I didnt hear my cell ring because I didnt know the volume was turned down but it sounded when she left a message. I checked my message before calling her to hear her say ” I got fired today call me when you get this message . Bye.” Facial Expression was like and then ( and felt like That job is just not going to be the same without my little homie. How the fugg you gonna fire somebody for a fugging hold time. You fugging idiots. She didnt make her hold time for the month. This job and their dumb quotas. I have never worked at a job that had as many fugging quotas as this one.

They want us to be at 10 seconds hold time. Hell I didnt even make my fuggin hold time for this month. I was at 13 seconds. I was on a final written at the end of last year because my hold time was like 35 seconds. Then they put me on a overall final written which is something that my supervisor made up so he would not have to fire me. He asked me to be under 20 seconds hold time and he will let me make it with that.

Now….we have a new director. They moved the old director to another position. This is what everyone wanted. Me…I didnt like him but I been making it with him. I feel like this..The new director could be much worse and look havent even been there a whole week and she already fired my homegirl. She came over from CitiBank and you know CitiBank dont play when it come to service. Who’s to say I am not next. Just gotta put it in the Lords Hands. When one door closes the next one opens…..Until next time



Townhome Here We Come..

Found out yesterday we got approved for the townhome. I honestly doubt the lady did much digging into the backgrounds seem like she just want the money. I hope she dont turn out to be one of them slumlords I hear people talking about, but by the looks of the rental I would guess she is. If I was renting my place out I would not dare let anyone see it in the condition that it was in. I told Baby and we the stupid ones for renting it, but I like it. The place has potential and I know we can fix it up to our liking on her expense as well. I am just excited because we get to paint. Yess!! Color…I am exited about that. Whatever we fix will be deducted from the rent and I am taking pictures before we even move our stuff in case she try to trip about the deposit, but the lady seems ok.

Baby already getting upset because I am talking about all the stuff I will have to buy to make up for all the extra space we will now have Well he is not really upset because he likes to decorate as much as I do. He takes pride in his home which is one thing I love about him with his mister clean self. Baby say we will have to clean for a week before he will even allow us to put our stuff in there. I asked the lady on the phone yesterday when will the rental be ready..and does she think it will be ready by next weekend? The asian lady goes its already ready Later telling baby about this he was in shock. Mister Clean goes if thats clean I hate to see what their house looks like. True dat… I told Asian Lady you’re gonna have to re-clean because that place was not clean to our liking. She said she will send someone over there on Monday or Tuesday to re-clean. Baby say thats good but he doubts they will do a good job and that we still going to have to get in there and scrub. I know he secretly cant wait to get in that Townhome, because he just a regular ‘ol Mister Fix It.

Tuesday we are gonna stop by there, meet with her and sign the lease and pick up the keys. Baby told her we will pay her on Thursday but she is still allowing us to go in early. I still have some questions for her that I had forgotten to ask her when we went the first time. I need to make a list of those questions and take them with me so I dont forget. This is the first time that I have experience renting a privately owned rental. I have only rented from apartment complexes with the management companies, but I have a friend that has rented a house before and she had a bad experience with that stating that the slumlord did not want to fix anything. Hopefully our experience will be a better one. I dont want to be in here posting about my Slumlord and how she is doing me wrong.

That lady better re-key them locks too. I asked her on the phone if the locks had been changed and her answer was not yet. I guess she did not intend on doing that until I asked. But we shall see how this goes. Well break is over. Back to packing…I try to break away every 30 minutes or soo cause it gets tiring..until next time…



Coming Up Onto Feb 28

Hey Journal,

Looking for a new lease for close to 2 months now and now I am finally coming up to the end of my current lease. Kinda got down a little bit when we finally start to call some of those places that we had been riding through and riding through again and now ready to do business and they wanna be taken or in the process of being rented. I was gettin pretty desperate today.

The house on Malmedy was nice. A little small house with a garage..lady like “well call me back next week in case it dont go thru”. I liked it but was not too happy about the area. All the houses in our area are a little bit more than we wanna pay. And the ones that are reasonable are over on the Southeast side in South Park or 3rd Ward. I was not tooo upset about the house though because I would be concerned being there by myself when Black is at work. No burglar bars no nuthin.

The condo on Sandspoint baby loved. He says this is “quality” Thats his new word I guess I guess baby I called today and dude goes “well we just had someone apply for that one and I dont know if its gonna go thru but call this number and ask for Jeff to show it to you in case it doesnt ” Everybody wanna put me on the back burner.

Man even the townhome that I liked and baby did not care for…..Gone! That one was baby last choice and he didnt want to get it. He told me to call them and all these people say the same thing ” well its rented” I am like okay wow I cant believe that and about to hang up and then she goes “well give me your number in case it dont go thru ”


But I lucked up on another townhome that we had saw for rent next to the one that I liked and called..turned out to be in our price range and asking for a next to nothin deposit. So me and baby went to go look at it today….asian lady was late meeting us there and was about to leave because it was getting dark..did not have my cell phone..and she pulled up apologizing for being late. Went inside I was like “Eww no carpet” but that place was HUGE. I was surprise on the asking price for it. Only thing is it needs work which I guess she expecting us to do because from the looks of it she pretty much acting like she did what she gonna do. I still liked it though and was surprised baby liked it as well.

She wanted us to come back tomorrow and fill out the application I was like whats the point of that ..we filled it ou right then and slapped her with that deposit and she says she will have the response by Saturday.

I hope and pray it goes thru….” GOD PLEASE ALLOW OUR APPLICATION TO BE APPROVED AND LET US HAVE NO PROBLEMS …SMOOTH SAILING ALL THE WAY THRU …” She seemed pretty surprised that we wanted it by next weekend when our lease doesnt end until the 28th. We just paid rent today and then we are going to pay rent to her next weekend. She looking at us like dam ya balling or sumthin. She seem pretty nice. I liked her. But we shall see. Until next time ..

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usBorn in Houston in the fall of 1981, Beyonce Giselle Knowles started performing at age seven. From dance classes to singing in the church choir, Beyonce was a natural. She and cousin Kelly Rowland met Latavia Roberson during this time, and the trio formed a group with Letoya Luckett. Mathew Knowles, Beyonce's father and Rowland's legal guardian, signed on to be the girls' manager. This situation would ultimately lead to the formation of one of the most popular female R&B groups of all time -- Destiny's Child. Destiny's Child made its debut 1990 and within ten years, the vocal act had experienced personal and political highs and lows that fueled the group's desire to make it big. Destiny's Child sold 33 million albums worldwide by 2002 and earned a slew of Grammys and additional music awards. "Jumpin' Jumpin'," "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Say My Name," and "Survivor" were smash hits, and the group appeared unstoppable. In 2001, Beyoncé, Rowland, and Michelle Williams allowed themselves a break from the singing group and tried their hands at individual solo careers. Before landing several movie roles, Beyoncé became the first African-American female artist and second woman ever to win the annual ASCAP Pop Songwriter of the Year Award. An appearance in the MTV drama Carmen: A Hip Hopera quickly followed, but it was her role as Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember in 2002 that eventually moved Beyoncé from the stage to the screen. Her first single, "Work It Out," coincided with the release of the Mike Myers comedy and cemented her celebrity status. A guest spot on Jay-Z's "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" was equally popular when it appeared in October. In 2003, she rejoined Jay-Z for her proper debut single, the funkadelic "Crazy in Love," as the press and fans christened her a bona fide star. Beyoncé's debut album, Dangerously in Love, which appeared in June 2003, featured collaborations with Sean Paul, Missy Elliott, and OutKast's Big Boi. The multi-platinum album spawned a total of four Top Ten singles. Nearly two years after another Destiny's Child album (Destiny Fulfilled), Beyoncé released her second album, B'day. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide... website statistics
