Our tenant has vacated the apartment downstairs to move in with her sister who lives a block from us. So we spent the entire weekend tidying up the apartment for the next renter. After two days, a full recycling bin, and two pails of paint later, the place downstairs is looking pristine. Shalimar seems he approves the look of the inlaw. Yes, I am delighted to announce that our former tenant decided to leave Shalimar with us.
Though my back is sore, it was mission accomplished this weekend. One done and twenty-four items left in my to-do list.
