Additional Gas This Week

November 11th, 2011 at 08:21 am

I had to increase my gas budget for the week. I have been making so many trips to the other house that I it took almost my whole gas budget to fill up this morning. The car was almost on empty. It is usually at 1/2 tank when I fill up on Friday. Hopefully now that I have renters I won't have to make so many trips out there.

Met the new renters last night and got their rent for 1/2 of January. They are also going to give me the security deposit next Friday. They are planning to get the power turned on in their name so that is a plus. Seems the power company now offers prepaid power. Used to be in order to get power turned on you had to have a $300 deposit. With the prepaid power, you just pay $75 at a time and they call you to let you know when you are getting low. I think that is a great program! I won't have to worry about making sure the power is paid.

My mom fell out of bed this morning and we had to call an ambulance to check her out. She was fine, just a little sore. She is so weak due to the chemo right now that even little tasks become huge feats. My sister is staying with them today and I will stay with them tomorrow. My dad decided that he was "going home" again on Monday. This is becoming a common occurance with his dimentia. He keeps asking where his wife is staying and where the kids are. Please keep both of my parents in your thoughts.

    Sounds like your renters this time will work out much better than before! Thoughts and prayers for your parents. It's so hard to see our parents age isn't it? Frown

    I think that even with the stress of the last renters, it may lead to a blessing overall if these new renters are more reliable, and you have the added insurance of letting THEM deal with the utility bills! I hope that it works out well, and that your mom is able to be home soon.
