Yesterday was the first time we’ve felt that we had the condo to ourselves.
Connie and her husband left for home yesterday (Saturday) before we got up. Her daughter had stayed until Thursday a.m.
It was difficult with them here. In the small condo, we felt crowded and intruded upon, but at the same time we tried hard to be understanding. We knew it was hard on her, especially since she had just lost her father. We put forth effort to make it work.
Things didn’t turn out as we’d expected and we were definitely “taken advantage of” but at least we are now the sole occupants of the condo and it’s a refreshing change.
I wish now that I’d taken a photo of the way the master bedroom was decorated after the “renovation.” Sadly Connie took nearly everything removable out of that room and the adjacent bathroom when she left. After Hoagie died, all furnishings in the condo were willed to my mother. Connie apparently didn’t see it that way. What a disappointment. We’ll go to Brandon today (my birthday) and replace the items we need in order to get by. The place still looks nice and we’re just happy to have it to ourselves. We still have about two weeks before we head home.
I’m finally over my cold (well, except for a little stuffiness). The weather has turned cool with highs only in the mid-60′s, but by about Tuesday, it should be nice again.
Next weekend, we hope our friends, the Conklins, can come over.
We’ve straightened out our status with the management of Kings Point and officially John and I are listed as the condo “residents” so we won’t have problems entering and leaving the gate.
