So this post will basically be me complaining about our new apartment. When I'm done I'll try to not complain about it anymore.
We're on the ground floor...So needless to say our apartment is filled with bugs. Living on the third floor for 2 years I've been spoiled with little to no bugs most of the time, and I think all the bugs got together and decided to make up for lost time. I told Cody when we first moved in that I feel like I'm at summercamp. I'm always finding bugs and Cody's getting sick of killing them for me. Luckily he still will...He just has to get up and get a tissue and kill a bug about every 4 minutes. Tonight I found my own while he was at work. I was trying to get all our dirty clothes together to do some laundry and when I lifted up a pillow near the bed there was a GIANT spider underneath. I think it might've been a hobo. It was on MY SIDE OF THE BED. I was FURIOUS. Most of the time when Cody's here I don't get mad at the bugs...They just freak me out. But when I'm home alone and a bug shows itself, I get so peeved. I ran and grabbed my flip-flop, then realized what I was holding and ran back and grabbed Cody's church shoe and went to show it who's boss. It was gone. It had disappeared into my sweatshirt. Oh I was even MORE mad! I was like-I'm going to kill you HARD. It crawled onto a box and I happily, but disturbingly, killed it. I just got home from doing laundry and another bug, a big, black one, crawled across our living room floor and under our entertainment center. I don't know if we can call our landlords and make them spray for bugs or something...But this is probably my biggest complaint.
After we moved out of our apartment we spent 9 1/2 hours cleaning it. We scrubbed and polished and dusted and vacuumed EVERY possible part of that apartment. And I was glad we did...It was nice to know that we lived in a place that someone was required to do that for us. No one was required to clean in our apartment now. At least not well. At all. Maybe I'm just too nit-picky, but the blinds are DISGUSTING, there was a dead bug on the sink, there's hair in the toilet, all the baseboard corners are covered in dirt and the sink area hadn't been scoured or even wiped off really. Like....Hi. Are you kidding me? Clean your freaking apartment. I'm sure the people that lived here before us were nice, friendly, normal people...But I still don't want to clean their hair out of the toilet. Sick.
There are a lot of broken things. Our towel rack is completely broken off on one side. It stays up if you don't touch it... but when you try to grab your towel off of it, it'll crash to the ground. Also, someone cut a piece of a blind out of the guest bedroom window...I dont' really know if someone cut it off...but it's missing and it creeps me out. I'm already scared enough living on the ground floor (I wake up in the middle of the night and look out the window expecting to see someone staring back at me), and I don't want to have to worry about someone having a total clear shot of my baby once she's here. Creepy! In our room, our blinds (the part that you twist to open or close them) are held together by a paperclip. Ghetto anyone? And my personal favorite, our keys don't fit our deadbolt. COOL, eh?! They don't even go in. I called the landlords today and they said they'd figure out what to do and call me back..Did they ever call back? HA. So 3 hours later (30 minutes before they closed) I called them and they were like...Oh yeah...When do you want that done by? I was like-Today would be nice, but if you can't do it now, it HAS to be done TOMORROW. They were like...Ok...well we can either buy a new deadbolt and install it, or you can. I was like-Are you kidding?! YOU CAN. AH! Super, super frustrated.
Anyway. The whole point of this complaining blog was because I'm so mad about all these stupid bugs...We dont have AC anymore so we open the windows at night...But not anymore! I'm not letting the bugs have any advantage in getting in here. Which just makes me more mad because I feel like they're making me change my lifestyle because they're so awful...haha stupid bugs! I just hate you!!!
Just wanted to add-- I trapped 2 more big, black bugs about 5 minutes ago under cups for Cody to kill when he gets home. One escaped so I put our scriputres on top of the cups to keep them there. I really want to go to bed...but there's no safe place! The big, black bugs are in the living room, I found the giant spider in our bedroom, and HECK NO to sleeping on the floor. AH! Maybe I'll break in to our old apartment and sleep there. Aw, I miss it.
