We have officially rented out the vacant apartment! The 4 waiters have signed a lease and given us 1 months security. They move in on Jan 1st.

So the apartment went 3 months vacant. Not great, but not unexpected given its large size and the time of the year.

But now we are back to 100% capacity!

I am trying to get motivated to start my taxes. I need to add up all our rental expenses, rental income, and health expenses. Then I'll be ready when my W2 comes in and my accountant sends me a little booklet to complete. Normally I do it Thanksgiving day...not this year. Now I wish I had just done it because I'm still not motivated. Even though I'm expecting around $4-5k refund...that should be motivation enough!

In other news- I talked to the business partner of the guy who owes me money. He has told me he will pay half since that was the agreement he made when entering the deal. He said he will make a payment at the end of next week. He wants to just pay it off ASAP so he'll get together what he can and make the payment. He alluded to between $1500-5000. Big spread but sounds good.

He also said he has completely bought his partner (the one who is institutionalized) out of the business. So now is the time to try and get the other half of the debt owed from the institutionalized brother because he is sitting on a big wad of cash.
I will be chasing down the brother for his half of the debt starting tomorrow.

And in baby news- she wants attention all the time. If I put her down she is quiet for like 10 mins and then starts inconsolably crying until she is picked back up. Husband hates the crying and also is tired of entertaining her all day so he just rocks her and tries to get her to fall asleep. I want her up during the day so she will sleep at night. So I end up carrying her and playing with her a lot in the day. She is very time consuming. I get exhausted thinking of the long road ahead...just teaching her to hold up her head is taking so much effort!

Baby raising is not for weak people.

    Yep, kids are hands on for quite a long time. Be glad for now she is not getting into things. Some people keep their babies in a sling with them all the time. They seem to like that.

    Fingers crossed your money comes in SOON!

    Hi Tasha, I enjoy your blog. I was reading about.. how your baby has been wanting to be carried , and about the crying. If it helps @ all, my son did this alot when he was a small baby. It is hard @ times, to hear the crying I know. {I can't let a bay cry either.} This time will pass, and you will get through it. Now my son is all grown up ,and in the military. I remember taht some child care book said taht some babies cry more than others, and I used to carry my son a great deal. I read all the childcare books by Dr. Terry brazelton. I found them helpful, and positive. Hang in there, you are doing great. The crying will ease up. {To tell you the truth, I would love to go back to that time in my life. Take comfort in knowing you are doing the best that you can... {Hope that you don"t mind my two cents here.}
