Also there was a severely bent bar and broken door on our wooden trash bin.

Landlord A. will be here on Sunday to make repairs.
To complete this little window into my life, I'll let you in on the fact that my stepdaughter will be a Senior this year.

Slightly spooky manor house and perhaps a ghost or two. I can't wait for cooler days to help inspire me!
Okay, okay, I can't wait for the Pumpkin Spice Latte to help inspire me :)
