Another Monday Down

I really didn't want to go to work today. The dogs were all cuddly this morning and I just wanted to sleep in. I did sleep around a half an hour later than usual because my early rising dog got adopted. On the way to work I got a call from the dog rescue and they said that one of my newly adopted dogs was growling at his new sister dog. That is so annoying when they call the next day with problems but if they are willing to work things out, give it time, and take the dog to the classes that we offer then it usually all works out. Later on I had to go through it again with the people who adopted my big puppy. Luckily they are also willing to go to classes too so I won't get any returned dogs just yet. They are both great dogs, very willing to please but they need some direction.

Work was slow today. I didn't bring a dog because I brought my propane tank with me and looked up a place to fill it. I found a place not too far away. It was a truck stop. The propane fill up spot was over where the big trucks fill up so I got my propane and then waited with the truckers to pay. The guy behind me was a Blue Bell ice cream truck driver. I asked him if he got free ice cream and he said 'sometimes'. By the end of the conversation I got a gallon of free ice cream! The lid had been damaged so it couldn't be sold. I brought it back to work to share and my office mates were thrilled. They said I should go get propane every week.

Later on my property management company called and told me that my house was rented. The one thing that bothers me about my property management company is that I have dealt with 4 different people so far and they don't seem to talk to each other. This latest person asked me where my second garage door remote was and I said that I had left it at the house 2 weeks ago like the other guy told me to do. Besides that little miscommunication, the lady told me that the renters actually took possession of the house on the 13th so that is a few more days of rent for me. I should see my rent money on the 25th. The rent is $1,050, which is amazing, and they signed a 1 year lease. I am very happy about that.

All in all it was a pretty good Monday. I hope the rest of the week goes even better.

Looks like you had a nice day, Daizy. My first thought when I read about your little ice cream coup was the saying, "You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!"

The $1,050 rent is monthly, right? So the May rent will be about 2/3 of that, not bad. You get a paycheck next week, then a rent check, then a day off on the 30th. And you are doing pretty well with the dogs and the water accumulation, right?

Keep it up, Daizy! :)

Free ice cream is always welcome.
A gallon? Whoa, that's some 4,5 liters, right? That's a lot!

I keep forgetting about that day off Dave. What a nice end of the month it will be. Yes, $1,050 is monthly and kind of high in my opinion. I sure hope they like my house.

KoBold, oops, only a half gallon. The other ice cream companies have been shrinking their half gallon containers. The Blue Bell container is actually a full half gallon and it looks really big compared to what i am used to.
