I'm Ready

I didn't go swimming this morning because I realized I wouldn't be ready in time for the apartment inspection in just a few minutes if I did. With my back now in excrutiating pain, I can't stand for a long time, I have everything accomplished. The dishes have been put through the dishwasher, the ones in there put away, and the floors are washed and everything else tidied. It's an inspection to see how things are since I moved in and how things are working and if there is anything that needs doing. I have a small check list. One is the fridge. I need to get a new one. The seal around the freezer section isn't tight and I've wiped mold off it several times now. The temp gauge also needs to be kept at max, which also freezes the food in the fridge portion, but otherwise it thaws in the freezer and goes bad in the fridge faster. The other problem, which might not be a problem as I haven't lived in an apartment in more than thirty years I think, is that the toilet keeps turning on and running for a short time, like after a flush. Annoying. And there is a small crack in the ceiling or tear in the ceiling drywall. Anyway, not much wrong just a few minor things. Though I do hope they can get me a new fridge. So all that happens in a few minutes, so I will leave you for a little bit, but I will be back. Oh, I did hear from the nurse this morning, she will be calling me back as soon as she talks to the doctor. I hope your day is going well so far. Thanks for reading.

She said it was a new fridge when I moved in, so the handyman will look it over to see if there is anything plugging it up and take care of the seal around the freezer.

I hope all goes well, I hate getting ready for people to inspect. We had an apartment many years ago that did inspections seemed like they always came at a bad time for me.

They sent the letter to know one was needed, and I made the appointment for when it was convenient for me, so no surprises and I was ready.

I think that the fridge needs to be changed, but even the toilet needs to be fixed.

She agreed about the toilet. She told me the fridge was new when I moved in so the handyman will check it out and see if there is anything plugged and see about the seal around the freezer. She did see how loose it was. So everything is good and the handyman will be here Friday to look everything over.

@just4him This is good, it was not at all normal that the toiled turned on time by time. I hope they can fix the refrigerator too.

Thank you so much. It is now feeling better since I got everything done and just in time too. I did break the mop for washing floors, it was cheap, so I'll need to get a new one, sturdier. Now I have the whole day to spend on my computer with everything done.

I hope the inspection goes well and you are able to get a new fridge. I know my toilet has been doing that same thing. I hesitate but I know I can ask maintenance to look at it..

All those problems should be fixable. If not, they should provide you with a new refrigerator. Good luck!

From what she said, the fridge is fixable, so is the toilet.

As I'm thinking about the fridge I forgot about the door shelf. The bottom one is almost broken in half. Though she did say it was new when I moved in. The handyman will be here on Friday to look it over and see if it's clogged up and get it working properly or replaced if necessary.

I have not lived in apartments since the early 70's so I'm not sure why you have an inspection? The toilet needs a new flapper. The fridge seems to be your biggest problem - you really do need a new one. Good luck.

I think that's what the manager said too about the toilet. The handyman will be here Friday to check the fridge and toilet out. She said the fridge is new when I moved in, and maybe something is plugging it that it isn't working the way it should. He will definitely take care of the seal.

They said it was new, so we'll see what they do. She said it might just be clogged.

@just4him Even with a new fridge you can have problems, our last one, which we dealt in with the home, was terrible. It was a Maytag and it made 3 different distinct loud noises, and it was very high maintenance as far as how often you had to pull it out and clean the back of it and that thing on the bottom. If we didn't do that regularly we were afraid that it would break down.

@Juliaacv They didn't do anything for the fridge except to put a thermometer in it to get the reading on it. He turned it down as soon as he opened the door as I had it turned all the way up. It looks like I was wrong about it. It's working fine. He told me what the temp is supposed to be for the freezer and the fridge and that's where it's holding. He did bring a new lower door shelf bar, so I can use that shelf again. I'm sorry your fridge was such high maintenance.

I hope that your pain gets well. You need to get this new fridge. I remember than once the fridge got broken and we had to do without it for some days. It was so difficult

Oh so the fridge is included in the appliances provided by the apartment owner. I hope your painful back will get better soon. Just do things slowly.

I'm on government housing, so I'm sure that had something to do with it, though it wasn't a housing inspection, that will probably happen when I'm here one year. This was just to make certain everything is in good working order.
