handypolymath: (reboot)

In late February we moved into a new place and began sharing a house with my retired parents.  The good news is, they will neither starve nor be homeless.  Yay!  Then the leak started.  Within a week, the first floor of the house became a mold dank basement and the landlord was an ambitious contestant on America's New Top Slumlord.

So April has been taken up with evidence gathering, lawyers, rental-hunting, lease-breaking, pulling a second security deposit out of our ass, and moving a SECOND time since the end of February.  The good news is, we got the first security deposit back and are only out some cheap bookshelves and a lot of mental resources, but we'll get over it.

The new place has a better layout for kludging two households together, their ancient cat and our two young cats have a decent professional working relationship when Ancient Cat is not being a total catbag, and I can finally do fancy luxurious things like sit on my damned couch and write.

Oh dang, yikes. Good luck with the new place! It sounds like you guys are in a better place anyway.

Oh, man, that's a miserable situation - I'm glad you're out of it, and that the cats are getting along better.

Gosh, that sounds awful, but I'm really glad you were able to find a place again, and one that's better for merging. *fingers crossed for legal matters*

I'm glad the cats are getting along (when Elder Feline isn't being catty). Unhappy pets can render a house unlivable.

*hugs you*
