Friday at last.  Get this work day over with and head home, relax tonight probably and then spend the weekend trying to get some of this situation here finished.

Addler is still pretty agitated I guess you could call it.  He is barely eating and running all the place. If I leave him out too long he will start crying, literally. It's a bit much for him I guess.  Time will deal with it.  He'll at least eat the treats I am giving him so there is that.  I don't think I'm going for  the deaf Great Dane for the owner revealed it is also an escape artist without elaborating how it escapes.  Sorry, I don't need one of those. It really doesn't have to be a Great Dane at all.  A medium sized dog that eats a lot less food would also suffice.

I did get a new bathtub faucted that has an attachment on it to put a hand held shower to it.  You hit the diverter valve and walaah, instant shower.  All well and fine - and installed - but there was only a thing to screw onto the regular shower head threads, which I don't have.  So I am going to go back today and see if they have some kind of bracket I can buy to have it mounted  to the wall.  I don't want to sit there hold the thing the whole time trying to take a shower (but I must admit it is far better than nothing at all or taking a bath).  After skipping a shower yesterday since I couldn't take one, it felt mighty good to get in that shower stream this morning and clean up.  It also helps wake me up, hence the reason I take my showers in the morning.

I expect things to start normalizing around here pretty quick. The new tenants are getting used to my ways - I don't want the front door left open all day long, thanks.  I'm trying not to actually "say" "negative" things to them, I just show them.  There are 2 doors on the front: a normal wood door and then a glass door.  The lady wants to leave the wood door open and the glass door closed.  Sounds okay but in reality the glass door doesn't have near the insulating properties of the wood door and it is summer time and the AC is on.  So I just started closing it.  They are here all day so the AC is set at lower temp all day.

The only thing that may help combat the extra electricity is that she does all of the dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher that was run once a day, every day when my landlords were here.  They also don't have near the electronic devices to keep charged/running as the landlords did.  It may offset it, I don't know.  I already did say something at the get go about laundry.  No 7 loads per week stuff.  Keep it to a minimum, please, do large loads.

I mean, I know I'm going to have to say some things about electric use behavior, maybe, but still, they already declared they are very conscious about electric use and that at least made me happy to hear they don't just believe because they are paying rent that the have the "right" to use as much as they please.

Well, writing time over. Off to work.
