I've just had an early breakfast after being awakened by texts and voicemail messages. My service provider is based on the west coast so I often get messages a day later than they first appear. Because I forgot to turn the phone off before going to bed, my mobile bleated loudly at 3 AM, rousing me and sending my no longer happily snoring feline off in search of the noise.
He is holding his own and enjoys me, our bed and his favorite chair. Otherwise, things here are not great. We have many problems with the buildings which need attention, profound problems with our board and a president residents are attempting to oust via recall, along with two of her board members. Additionally, she is being investigated by the State for issues related to association finances. These are not a matter of ignorance because she has a financial background and the individual who reported this is fully qualified to spot irregularities. Such cases are not rare in my state. What is rare, relatively speaking, is prosecution because certain limits must be reached before states attorney or law enforcement are willing to devote resources to the matter and by the time this occurs, an association may have little left. This can lead to large assessments. For those on fixed incomes who cannot pay or others who lack the means, the association has the right to take the unit, effectively leaving its owner homeless. How this will all pan out at this point is anyone's guess. I remain concerned.
In the meantime, Lukas must be readied for his mid-week visit for fluids and I face a pile of laundry.
