Happy Halloween & Apartment Stuff

We'll be heading over to Tigger and Lincoln's place tonight. We haven't got a chance to hang out for quite a while, and it also means we'll be out of the apartment and won't have to deal with any Trick-or-Treaters that might come by (since we didn't bother buying any candy this year). Should be fun - we'll probably just sit a round and watch some scary movies. Can't stay out tooo long, since Jenny has to work in the morning.

The apartment people are finally cleaning out the unit next door  - it's been vacant over a month, since the neighbors have been evicted. They really trashed the place, and apparently left a lot of stuff behind, like beds and other furniture. Guess they had to make room, since they took the washer and dryer when they went. Yep, they stole the washer and dryer that came with the apartment (and was brand new when we moved in 3 years ago). Wow. Just when I think people can't amaze me any more....

The prospect of them possibly replacing most of our appliances is definately appealing, and certainly makes the thought of staying here more bearable. But with our current lack of money, it's more and more likely, so we might as well try to make the most of it. Atleast we have somewhere to live. I'm seeing on the local news about how some folks can't get into homes right now, with the current economic crunch, and are actually staying in Motels long term, since it's cheaper than most apartments and they don't require the whole first/last/deposit + credit check thing to move in. Yeesh.
