  Hello Divo, Hello Gizmo~
We think that Lena and Anna are so lucky to have such a cool and loving grandma! We know they appreciate her so very much!
What kind of job is Anna applying for? She is a teacher, right? We sure are keeping good thoughts for her. She seems like a lovely young woman and deserves great things!
It's nearly story time so come perch with me!
Remember that I love you both so much!

I think it is so cool that Lena has a studio at home. I'm sure it makes it so much easier for her to work when she feels like it. Mom was lucky when she found her little place because there were not too many available. It was near a college so there were lots of people looking for the smaller places.
I will see you guys tonight for our story!

I bet there are lots of people like Lena who have roommates. They had a map of apartment prices in Seattle on FB and most of the one bedrooms are near 1200$ a month! Mom had what they use to call a studio apartment when she was younger. She lived there for 2 years before she and dad got married and she has fond memories of that place. It was just one big room and a bathroom but she loved it. I think there are days when she misses the peace and quite of the place!
I will see you guys tonight for another fun story!

I know what you mean about not giving the little guys a break! Some people will never think they have enough money! Mom would hope she would never be like that. Helping out our fellow humans and animals is what you are suppose to do and if you have any compassion at all, you do that in whatever way you can.
The only decent law they have covering housing up here is that everyone gets treated equally. It's actually against the law to not charge someone a late charge, while charging another person. Do not know if rent control will ever happen or not. Seattle will be first so everyone is waiting to see what happens. Lots of people live with friends or relatives just so they can live in a nice place and still have money to eat with!! Ian has 3 college friends who share a house up in Seattle. None of them could afford a place on their own.
I will see you tonight for our story!

It's a nice cool day and we might even get some rain!!
Jennifer has gone off to the Zoo with her mom and Maddie. Her mom and stepfather go back home tomorrow so they are going to spend the day together. They are going to drop Jennifer off at her dad's when they get back from the Zoo.
This whole rent increase is only because of Seattle talking about rent control. Everyone wants to make sure they have raised it up so if there is rent control, they are already ahead! Yep, just greed!! The most pitiful part is that all those people who fought so hard to get the 15$ an hour are not going to get ahead at all.

  Hello Divo, Hello Gizmo~
Well dad got upset when mom told him about the rent increase just like she knew he would! She told him to look online and see that the other places around here are just as expensive if not more! Plus the other places are not all pet friendly which is why we picked this place to begin with. There are lots of military families here but I think the owners just take whatever the housing allowance is. That is how it should be.
So many people left Seattle because of the increases that there are not many vacant places down here. There are 4 counties on the west coast of WA that increased the rents. It's just sad that someone always finds a way around people trying to get ahead. It will all work out for us since there are 4 people paying for things but what about other people who can not afford it? It is all very sad!
I will see you tonight for another story!
Remember that I love you guys!

Mom finally got dad on the phone and he was upset by the rent increase! He's in Layton PA taking a nap before he heads out to Indiana. Mom told him it would be fine since Ian and Jennifer are going to pay more. They are making more now so they should pay more.
Mom is not sure why the manager is moving over to her store. There was a manager at the store mom's manager is moving to that was there for 8 years. They usually don't stay that long so they moved her out and put mom's manager there. It's all crazy but for the most part they don't mess with the price changers so it should all be good!

Mom talked to dad for a bit today and he is in Rhode Island now. He was taking a break because he was tired. He has been in 7 states in 2 days! The state are smaller out east but still that is a lot of traveling. Mom always thought that the farther west people traveled the lazier they got since the states kept getting bigger and bigger!hehehehehe

Ian doesn't know about the job yet. I don't think the lady doing it has actually left yet. I've got my toes crossed for the boy! They know he is a good worker and always shows up when they need him so hopefully that will help him get the job.
They wouldn't allow anyone into the storage place because they are still checking out all the buildings to make sure they are safe. Even the ones that weren't burned could have smoke and water damage. Some people showed up yesterday but they are all going to have to wait for the building inspector to finish. It must be hard for them to wait!
I'll see you tonight for another story!

When mom drove Ian to work this morning they saw that all the storage units have now collapsed except for the end one. It's just a metal frame. Guess it's going to be pretty messy to clean that all up! The fire department did leave last night so I guess it's safe for the owners to start clean up!
Too hot for this little zon! Jumped in my water bowl and now I feel much better! I will be looking very fluffy for our story tonight! See you then!

It is a much quieter afternoon around here! Mom goes to pick Ian up at 2. This time the windows will be closed!! Good thing she was only gone 10 minutes! 10 minutes after she got home the place was filled with smoke! The wind was a bad thing because of the fire but it helped blow the smoke away.
Mom made a burrito for lunch so I had more tortilla. She gave me a few fruit loops later! I've never had fruit loops before! Ian got a huge box of those, coco krispies and apple jacks at Costco. I guess he felt like junk cereal this week. We never buy that kind but I have to tell you they were pretty yummy! Mom tells me her mother use to make marshmallow treats with fruit loops! Sounds interesting!!

We are having the story early today since mom is going to the movies this evening. It will be strange but when we are done I think Dixie and I will be building some castles with his blocks! I hope you will stick around and watch! We usually have a great time with blocks and I am very careful not to chew any up!
Laundry is done so I'm heading off!

Oh I always have a great time with toys.
Mom talked to dad today and he was in Missouri on his way to Tennessee. He was telling mom about some show he watched on Golden Eagles. He told mom that they push other animals off cliffs in order to eat them! That's a bit extreme don't you think? It's probably efficient but it still seems a bit harsh! I will see you both very soon for our story! Mom is going to try to get to bed early tonight since she's been up all day!

I am busy with at toy at the moment. I spend some time this morning with it too and then took a break to get a shower. I am still molting but not nearly as cranky as I was. I didn't bite mom at all yesterday! Today is still young so I'll have to see what happens.

I am sitting on mom's should dictating my notes! We locked Merlin up in the bedroom otherwise he will jump up on the computer desk, which makes me bite mom! He is still being velcro kitty and I don't like it one bit! He went into the bedroom on his own so I guess he is going to take a nap!
Not much going on today but I figured it would be a boring day! That is a good thing! We have had too many busy days and I think today should be dedicated to just sitting with me!
I will see you for out story tonight!

I've made it around to leave votes for every bird but I'm only able to get a few notes done today!
Mom took Jennifer down to visit her dad again. They stopped at the market down there since Jennifer is not sure if he has anything food in the house. His wife made him some individual serving things and froze them but that might be it! Jennifer did take some oatmeal down a few weeks ago but I don't think she wants to eat oatmeal for the entire weekend.
Down in Lacey they don't use plastic grocery bags anymore. You have to remember to bring your own bag or pay for a paper one. Mom had a bag in the car so they were good. Mom has lots of them and tries to remember to take them with her to the market. We don't really have any use for the plastic ones and they are a menace to the environment.
Mom found some yummy vegan cookies at the market! I tried the maple one and it is good! Way too expensive so mom needs to spend more time learning how to make this stuff.
I will see you both for our story tonight!

We thought we would be able to get lots of notes out today but mom can barely stay awake long enough to type one note!hehehe
We need to clean out George and Gracie today so that has to be done before I can get around to every birds page. It doesn't take very long. Mom has to drop Jennifer off soon so she'll do it when she gets back. She can't just stop in the middle of it so she has to be sure she'll have the time.
Tonight will be pretty boring for mom since her work is really not scheduled for Thursday night or Friday night. Only when they have a 2 days ad, which is not this week, is there work to do. She'll have to spend the night auditing which is really boring! She made sure her MP3 player is charged!

Another crazy day. We didn't even eat our oatmeal until 11:30. There is so much traffic out there lately! Mom is wondering why all these people are not at work!hehehehehe Ian says maybe some of them work nights like mom! Doubt it! I think lots of people are taking vacation right now and not leaving town!
