Friday I went into Hobby Lobby to stock back up with their half priced spooled ribbon. I used most of my ribbon stash when I made the boho ribbon hanger now hanging in the dining room ceiling.
Every time I go in there I see more and more boho decor. It seems like I’m seeing boho everywhere. Even in my grocery store.
Now decorating blogs seem a bit more eclectic for the most part and are adding bits of boho to their modern farmhouse styled homes.
It is interesting seeing it mixed with other styles of decor.
Yesterday I was talking to the manager, who is staying here, and she said she saw a print out of what they’re planning for the kitchen. That is unless they change their minds before the end of the month and don’t sign.
She said they were planning to tear down that L wall that separates the living room and dining room from the kitchen, leaving it open. In the open space they plan a breakfast bar.
That would definitely open it up in here, especially if they angled the bar across the space instead of lining it up. But then what if one of the walls is load bearing? Guess they’ll find out soon enough.
She said she saw black appliances and all new cabinets.
No mention of the rest of the place except she thinks they may put in washer/dryer connections.
I don’t know that they’ve looked at the back of the apartments. When they were here last, they didn’t go out on my patio. Because the rotted wood is pretty bad back there with the roots (whether dead or alive) well under my apartment.
How someone would fix that I don’t know. You’d have to go into the cement and the wall.
But then all this is conjecture at this point.
She said a crew of them were coming in tomorrow to interview for maintenance jobs, etc. From what I understand the ones here are not planning to stay. Guess it would depend on the offer made to them though.
Whoever they hire for maintenance, they would be wise to make them carry a company phone and fix it where they can’t be on the internet all day or texting people. Because they could be working a lot more if they weren’t glued to their phones.
One of you asked why they let the guy who pees everywhere still live here. She said it’s hard to get him out because adult services have come in and say he is of sound mind, so they can’t make him go to assisted living.
I don’t know what the rules are about all that. But she said she is trying to convince him to at least get a new chair because the one he sits in reeks of urine. Apparently he just pees wherever he’s sitting.
And she said she made him buy Depends. Whether he does of course is unknown.
I suppose you could just not let him resign for another year once his lease is up.
I think there are quite a few of the older folks here who really need more help, but don’t want to move. Many have lived here for decades and now have dementia and related disorders.
And apparently no family to help with their care. Or at least family willing to step in.
