OK. Every day I come home and I drive past my house to get to the driveway I park in, but the past few days I've noticed something disturbing... I think the front porch is unstable. The house is a two story with a porch for each floor. Above the upstairs porch is the attic that extends over and makes the roof of the upper porch. Each porch has three pillars holding everything up. I think something is starting to give way. Either one of the upper columns, or more likely, one of the lower. It could be due to erosion from water coming off the house next door. The thing that really bothers me about it, other than the idea the entire front of my house could fall down, is that my landlord loves to drag his feet on things and I know even telling him means nothing is going to get done with haste.
But I'm not in a position to move just yet. We've stayed put for so long we've put the rental market out of reach for getting anything even close to the same size. And quite honestly I like the neighborhood and how close it is to everything I need. And I have off street parking. Moving too soon to rent something else that isn't suitable will make it much harder for me to gather the money for a downpayment on a house. And it all just sucks.
Only problem with that is he informed us that we've been month to month for a while and he plans on, at some point, giving us a new lease, which is naturally going to have a much higher rent. I'm just hoping he doesn't get around to it for at least a few more months, so I can get us out of here before then. So I don't really have leverage.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
