Undercover Camera: Rental Edition

We didn't really go undercover, but the tenant wasn't there when we showed the house today so we were free to assess the damage at our leisure. Good thing, because after seeing the house, they would've gotten an earful from me. James asked us if we had fun at the old house. I told him it was not so much like fun, but more like having toothpicks shoved under your fingernails or something. Just for kicks, in case you're interested, here are a few pictures of the pit of despair. Tomorrow, I'll post happy pictures of the fam, because despite the crap going on at the rental house, my kids still make me smile and spring is still coming and there are lots of reasons to be happy. Just don't remind me of the rental house. Oh, and if you want to get the full effect, have your significant other pee on the rug, let it marinate for a day or 6 weeks, then sit there and smell it while watching the slideshow.

Hooooooly schnikees. Suddenly I'm not feeling so bad about my own house (which I'm sure you find to be a great comfort ;) And seriously, they said ALL their stuff was out?! That's a *LOT* to leave behind...

Yeah. Its bad, eh? And there is a lot of stuff left over. They have til Wednesday at 10am to get their stuff out, but I have a sneaking suspicion we'll be throwing a lot of it out in the trash! And Trish...yeah, Jeff said, 'and I thought our house was dirty!'

Just keep reminding yourself that they will be out very soooon!!! Hey, I was thinking I didn't mention it today in our 5 hour telephone conversation (good thing Jeff came home) but I could help you out this weekend or watch your kids for you whichever you prefer. Just give me a "for real" quick call and we'll set something up.
