We have decided to quit being landlords and reclaim our master bedroom and bathroom. It will be nice to have the extra space for ourselves. We have given our tenant until September 15 to vacate the premises. It will be such a relief to have him gone.
This is how the room looked when the tenant moved in:
The tenant will take his sofa, charcoal grill and clothing with him. We will keep everything else.
David will move his king size bed and triple dresser into the master bedroom. That way, he can use the master toilet with the hand rails permanently in place. I will use the hallway bathroom, which will not have the hand rails and will be better for guests, too.
My husband and I are now sleeping in separate quarters and have been doing so since mid-May. He kept getting up throughout the night to go to the bathroom, and when he did, he woke me up. As he ages, it will only get worse.
Now that we sleep separately, I have been able to sleep better. It’s heavenly. I plan to move the full size bed and night stand from the tenant’s room to Maria’s room, which then will become mine.
Lisa’s room will be reserved for Lisa, when she visits us in Hawaii.
It will be a nightmare juggling all this furniture, but I hope we all end up happier with this new arrangement.
