And so...

The living room floors are coming along nicely.  My hands are fairly blistered, but those heal.



The darker floors are going to help with the fact that all of the walls soar to the second story and the space is...HUGE.
soldiergrrrl: (Beloved)

How it looked at the start.


From the door of the office, looking out into the hallway.  This is a HUGE improvement from what it used to look like.  The PLANT isn't on the buffet any more.


Standing at the buffet, looking toward the front door.  The PLANT has found a new home.  Now, the question is...WTF do I *DO* with said PLANT?


Looking into the office from the buffet.  Liam's computer is, well, where Liam is, mine is just behind his, and John's is to the right.


Looking up at John's desk.  I shot this low so I could get the artwork on the walls.  :-)  Hey, [livejournal.com profile] haikujaguar , you should recognize something in this picture.  So should [livejournal.com profile] haldira !


Liam's desk.  Baseball is srs bizness, yo!


My desk, now with more pink flowers!


The shelves just to the right of my desk.  You should definitely recognize these, [livejournal.com profile] haikujaguar .   Your art, in it's non-native environment!


And, last but not least, the drafting table corner.

I wish I had more pictures of the hardwood going in. It's much like laying tile, in that it is laborious, but not difficult.  In fact, it's pretty easy.  Liam had to make some pretty fancy cuts to go around the rounded edges on the columns, but really?  He did a great job!  We won't talk about how much adhesive ended up on me, though...

And now...it's dinner time!

Really...

I can't begin to express how lucky I really am.  Even through chat, my husband cracks me up.

Other people I cherish make me smile and laugh in text, on the phone, or through email. 

The amount of laughter in my life amazes me.  I'm surrounded by it, and I am so beyond happy that some times it scares me.

Blessings, I has them.

So, it's been over five months since we moved out of the rental house in Jarrell. We STILL haven't gotten our deposit back, and I've gotten almost no response to my inquiries. I'm tired of it, and I finally feel good enough that I'm doing something about it. When I'm feeling *RAWR*, do not irritate me.

Certified Mail- Return Receipt Requested

Re: Demand of Security Deposit

As you know, my husband and I gave you a security deposit when we leased your property at {address} on 15 Nov 2008. We vacated the house on 15 Nov 2009. As of this letter, the security deposit has not been returned, nor has an itemized receipt been provided stating any incurred charges. I have requested an explanation several times, and have gotten little or no response.

At this point, I am demanding the return of the entire security deposit in certified funds. Please see below for explanation. I have enclosed a copy of the check, showing the amount of the security deposit. I am requesting the deposit be returned IN FULL no later than five (5)business days after the receipt of this demand letter.

According to Texas Property Code Section 92.109, I have no choice but to assume you have acted in bad faith.

§ 92.109. LIABILITY OF LANDLORD. (a) A landlord who in bad faith retains a security deposit in violation of this subchapter is liable for an amount equal to the sum of $100, three times the portion of the deposit wrongfully withheld, and the tenant's reasonable attorney's fees in a suit to recover the deposit.
(b) A landlord who in bad faith does not provide a written description and itemized list of damages and charges in violation of this subchapter:
(1) forfeits the right to withhold any portion of the security deposit or to bring suit against the tenant for damages to the premises; and
(2) is liable for the tenant's reasonable attorney's fees in a suit to recover the deposit.
(c) In an action brought by a tenant under this subchapter, the landlord has the burden of proving that the retention of any portion of the security deposit was reasonable.
(d) A landlord who fails either to return a security deposit or to provide a written description and itemization of deductions on or before the 30th day after the date the tenant surrenders possession is presumed to have acted in bad faith.

Acts 1983, 68th Leg., p. 3641, ch. 576, § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1984.

Sincerely,
A very annoyed SoldierGrrrl
soldiergrrrl: (Yay!)
Tomorrow, I will be up to my eyeballs in turkey, family and friends, so I'm going take a moment today to say how thankful I am for my life. I have a wonderful, loving family, the best friends I could ask for, a stable job, and a new house. My dogs are pretty awesome (even horrible little rat dogs that steal sandwiches off desks...) and I am so incredibly blessed.

Tell me what you're grateful for?

We did it!

We are now homeowners!

*dances* 

I'm still slightly croggled that this is my life.  It's just too awesome.

I'll get some pictures tomorrow.  Since we don't fund until tomorrow, we won't pick up keys until then, but after that, it's on, baby!

OMG HOUSE!
