I was planning on going out today, but seeing that the fucktard ex-owner never showed up yesterday and I don’t know if he might show today and I don’t want to be gone if he does. Another reason is that I don’t have anyway of locking up the shop, that needs to be remedied and soon even if it’s just a padlock. I guess I could do that today and check if they have a roof snow rake, as there’s quite a snow load up there. Also, the weather forecast doesn’t look as good as it did yesterday, pretty dark and gloomy…again.
Update 11:30am – Went and picked up a latch for a padlock at TruValue. It’s all installed and able to be locked now. Now I can leave (not today though, it’s too late and I’ve started on other things) and not have to worry about the ex-owner getting in for their stuff without me being here, nor anyone else for that matter.
Update 1:00 PM – Well, he did stop by to get a couple things. Glad I was here. He told me that his wife wants to speak to me about the money they think I owe them, and told him it’s not going to happen, not after all the things I have found fucked up when they both said there was nothing wrong with the place. He then told me that that is up to her as they are no longer together. He moved back up here about a month after moving down to Ohio and his wife has also moved back up here, but not together. He said he couldn’t stand living down there, but didn’t say why she came back up. She is living with her mother and he is living in some apartment in Lanse.
I guess this saga will continue. I don’t need this shit in my life.
Okay, so I have called a good dozen times leaving a message and also emailed. Still, no fucking call back or email. I asked the bank this morning if there was anything they could do, but all they said was that they can stop payment for any upcoming withdraws. I sure a fuck am think of doing that. If I was living down there I’d be hunting the fucking manager down to get my goddamn motherfucking money back.
I just sent this email to him… “I’m getting pretty tired of not hearing back from you guys. Even if you’re not at work, I’m pretty sure you get your email.
I need this second withdraw returned into my account…Now. I will take this else where if need be.”

Fucking Northern Shores has taken a second withdrawal from my account for this month. This place has been nothing but a pain in the ass. I have a call into them, but of course they didn’t answer, they never do.
Update at 11:00 AM – Still no call back so I called them again… nothing, no fucking answer. This is complete fucking bullshit!
Oh, and to top this shit off, I went and got groceries this morning in Lanse and ran into the ex-owner on the house. He asked how things were, I said fine. He didn’t say anything about the money they think I owe them, but he did say he might be by to pickup some of their stuff they left in the shop. I really don’t want to deal with them at all.
As of 1:00 PM I’ve email Tim at Northern Shores. It’s now 2:40 PM and I haven’t heard a thing. I don’t give a flying fuck if the weather is bad, he can still answer emails. There is no fucking excuse for this shit.
I got my W2 in the mail today and my other tax papers the past few days, so I did my taxes. Looks like I should have enough for tires. I need to figure out how in the fuck I’m going to afford a lawn tractor before summer.
Also today, I got the driveway all cleaned up after the ice/sleet/ snow from the other day and snow from last night. Now for the next snow and it sounds like it could be a pretty big one. There’s a winter storm warning out for over a foot of snow for us later Thursday through Friday morning. NWS says it will be a fast and hard hitting storm with snow rates of 2+ inches per hour possible. I think I’ll go do my shopping tomorrow morning because it looks like I’ll be busy clearing snow Friday.
One more thing, the “friendly four”, as I call them, are getting quite use to me and let me stand just a couple feet away as they eat. They come around just about the same time everyday, and if I don’t have feed out there for them, they come around the house and peek in my side window food shaming me. lol
We had an ice storm earlier today, though the Marquette area got the worst of it. Now we have a weather advisory for a flash freeze. Also, didn’t have work due to the crappy weather down state, and I’m guessing they very well could get a flash freeze tonight.

I was planing on going out today, but it’s really dark and gloomy, so I guess I’m staying in…again. I have a pretty large project to get started and done, I just need to get motivated to do it. My two spare rooms need sorting out, big time. When I first moved in I placed all my boxes in one room and the extra bed in another, well they’re backwards. The larger room has the boxes and the smaller the bed. I need to swap them around. I also want to make the smaller room into a project room (and maybe an office later) with a table to put things together, and just plain work on things. Anyway, I just need to get motivated and get it done.
Update – Well, I’m about half done. I have about half the boxes moved from one room to the other and the big job done…the bed is moved. What a bitch moving that mattress was. The room are across the hall from each other, but moving a king size floppy mattress is quite the chore. Also, I finally put the bed frame together, though I seem to have misplaced the center support leg. I hunted around and found a milk crate that is just the right height, so that’s in place until i find the proper support leg. Tomorrow I’ll try and move more boxes around.
I had to get out of the house today, I was getting antsy. So, I took a little drive where I’ve gone many times, but I enjoy the drive, it’s pretty. I headed out Arvon Rd to Indian Rd then Herman Rd. Went out through Herman knowing that it only get plowed so far, well, I was wrong, it was plowed further then I’ve seen it. The road with all the way to US41 near Nestoria. I turned around anyway, I just like the drive. After enjoying a nice slow drive through the woods and snow, I went to get a couple photos of Keweenaw Bay, then home. I was only gone a couple hours, but it was nice to get out on this cold day. The whole trip the temp never got over -10°F with passing snow showers and sunshine.
