Weekly Wishes #16

Last week I had every intention of coming by my blog every day. Every. Intention.

Technically, baby's first picture with Santa!
If you follow my Instagram, you'll notice that I had one of those "home disasters" that plague us all. Last week, Southern California got more rain in two days than it had all year. Of course, this would be the time that a major pipe would burst in my kitchen. Luckily, it was our roommate's day off, and he noticed the flooding. I shudder to think how bad it would have been if no one had been home, and Bella had been in her crate getting flooded on. Poor puppy :(

Wednesday became a whirlwind of moving animals around, arguing with the apartment and getting a hotel. Thursday almost followed in a similar suit, except I was allowed back in our apartment and we didn't have to move any animals. On Friday, I had to move Bella from my mom's house to my dad's apartment, because the 3 dogs were exhausting my mom who had chemo on Weds. Bella decided she didn't like my dad and tried to eat him, so later that night we had to bring her back to my mom's. On Saturday, we weren't allowed in our apartment for them to dehumidify it. Now it's Monday and they still aren't here repairing the hole in our floor...

Besides that, my weekend looked like: working at the restaurant, Brunch with Santa, a lovely blogdate at Creamistry in Irvine and some QT with Iman.

Last week's goals:

1// Clean my apartment and bedroom so we can get a Christmas tree. Super grateful to our apartment complex for fixing our flooded apartment in a timely manner *sarcasm* I'm still waiting for them to come fix it...with all of my stuff shoved around out of the way of the burst pipe. 

2// Get said Christmas tree and decorations. I'm going to again blame my apartment on this one! With my apartment a wreck, I am not bringing in a tree!

3// Get through my days without being totally exhausted!!  Yes! I didn't take a nap all week - and not because I didn't have time, I didn't feel the need for one!!

My wishes for this week:

1// Tie up some loose ends. I have some "housekeeping" things to figure out like insurance, lab tests,  some things to mail, lessons to learn to teach my students, and studying for my server training.

2// Memorize the dishes at my restaurant. I start server training on Friday!

3// Clean my apartment? 

4// Decorate?? 

5// Have a talk with my apartment's property managers. I've been documenting everything (including hour/minute phone calls) and I am going to take it to the property managers to show how poorly this situation was handled.

6// Purchase things at the dollar tree to craft into gifts!

How was your weekend? What are your goals for this week?

  1. Aww, so sorry to hear about your apartment! Boo on the delay it has caused your holiday decorations. We got a lot of rain in Northern California last week, too, but luckily we didn't have any issues with flooding in our building. Good luck on your goals this week! (I also have "clean the apartment" on my weekly wishes today haha.) I hope you feel energetic again this week so you can get everything done!

  2. Oh my, hopefully things will go your way this week!

  3. You just reminded me that I need to call my own property managers too! I pay an extra $27 per month to have a special outlet for my AC. You pay year round regardless and I noticed that the plug isn't working and no one has come to pay for it, but they definitely charged me for it for the past few months! SMH - and they need to fix some water damage too. Good luck!

  4. Thank you so much! I did have more energy and succeeded! Weee!

  5. Thank you! things definitely got better!

  6. Omgosh, how annoying!!! Good luck to you, too!!!
