We have a visit from one of the "big" bosses today. I've heard that they only plan on visiting the stores that were just taken over in the Public Storage/Shurguard merger. I hope that is true and that they stay away from me. I also have a tenant coming in who is angry that we cut her lock and inventoried her space to get it ready for sale. I tried to explain to her that this is what happens when you pay at the last minute each month. I am not an evil storage ogre. I'm only doing my job. If you don't pay this is what happens. She used some obscene words on the phone with me, and I'm sure her in person visit will be the same. This is the part of the job I hate. People insist on blaming me for their inability to pay. It would be lovely if I could allow everyone to use their space without paying, but I live in a place called reality.

David and I made reservations at a lovely hotel for our anniversary only to find that his Dad's friends are throwing a birthday part for his 60th on Saturday. At first I was bummed, but then we found a hotel next to the place they are throwing the party. It's an ocean front hotel and they had a nice romance package for much less than we were paying at the other place. It's nice that it worked out this way. We were planning on having someone watch Erin, going out to dinner, and staying home which would have been fine as well, but now David's mom, sister, and niece will be staying here Saturday evening so they can attend the party.
I'm looking forward to our little getaway. It's only for the evening, but we don't normally have time to ourselves much less time to ourselves at a nice hotel on the beach. I'm checking now to see if the beach allows bonfires.
