Apartment Life #205


This is a new weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 20 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 20 years here in a weekly blog post.

Unbelievably it's been pretty quiet around here this week. We've seen the police patrolling around quite a bit but I haven't seen them parked or at anyone's apartment this week. 


Of course when I had the dog out for a walk I did spot something that shouldn't have been there in the alley by one of the parking curbs... a needle. Thankfully it had a cap on it so I threw it in the trash so a kid didn't get a hold of it. 

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.

Today is also my 15 year Blogoversary!

I can't believe I've had this blog for 15 years. So thank you to those of you that have been here a long time and to those who are fairly new. I hope to be around many more years.

Life Update: 

Ken found out that the cancer has spread to his rib bones on the left side but it hasn't spread anywhere else. They did tell him that he has stage 4 cancer since it went from his lung to his brain and rib bones though. They surgically implanted a chest port this week so he can start chemo and they are going to start radiation on his brain lesions as well soon.

  9. It must be a relief it's been so quiet, instead of the usual mayhem and regular visits by the police!

    Fifteen years blogging is quite something. I've managed 13 years so far!

    Good luck with the chemo and radiotherapy.

  24. It's crazy that you find something to talk about for your Apartment Hell series every week! Needles now...ugh.

    15 years are a very long time for a blog to be around! I don't know anybody else who's had a blog for so long. Happy belated blogoversary, and here's to many more years!

    I'm sorry your family has to go through this. I hope the treatment will be able to block the cancer spread. Best wishes.

  26. I'm so glad that Ken is getting started on treatment. That at least is a positive move and will get things moving. I really hope this treatment halts the spread and starts working on getting rid of some of what is there. My thoughts are with your family every day x

  27. That's good you spotted that needle and could throw it away before a kid stumbled upon it.

    Happy blogoversary! Wow 15 years!

    I hope the treatment will help Ken. Stage 4 doesn't sound good and that it's in his rib bones as well :(. I am so sorry you have to go through this.
