It’s been a few days since I posted. We got to escape on Sunday, my mother and grandmother took us apple picking and to lunch. It was a good day, but I was so distracted being away I forgot to take pictures. Kaleb was in apple heaven and every time I saw him he was eating one.
Yesterday I headed into work. I hated having to leave everyone here, but my boss needed me and we need the money. It was a miserable day weather wise and it felt like I’d been gone for months. I tried to jam pack as much work in as I could in the 10 hours I was there. I love my job, but being that far away from them scared me.
I promised to tell a bit about the conditions here. The pictures speak more words than I ever could, but I’ll explain a little. We arrived to a room that they must not have cleaned. Trash behind the bed, stained bedding and the smell, oh the smell. The previous tenant had a service dog that we now learned from our neighbors was taken out maybe once a day and locked in the bathroom. The whole room smelled of dog and very strong paint, so bad that the bathroom door still remains closed. It is slowly going away, but using the bathroom makes you feel stoned.
