Started early today, had to unlock a house for the housekeeper and take some pictures for an owner. What a morning it became! Just as I was heading out the door the roommate messaged me about an email from an owner. Seems my handyman was at a house yesterday evening and a neighbor became suspicious and called the cops! Nothing malicious was happening, but that just threw my morning into a tizzy.
So I headed down and unlocked for the housekeeper, then ran out to do a walkthrough (on video) for the owner of the other to show him nothing was missing or broken. After that, it was time to run to ANOTHER house to take pictures of furniture for those owners. Then onto another house to do a normal Monday walkthrough. Of course, there’s another set of guests leaving late afternoon, so I had to go down there to make sure the place was closed up.
I did get a chance to finish watching the Limitless TV series. Makes me sad that it was cancelled. I really want more of the show. I loved the story and the characters. And there was a huge cliffhanger at the end of the season that was never resolved.
The housekeepers cleaned up another house that was vacated. Not a whole lot to report there.
I’ve started playing the Stoneblock 2 modpack. It’s been eating up my free time.
Busy day today! I did pools a day early because of the arrival tomorrow. I also had the housekeepers preparing the house for the arrival. Overall pool service was light and easy.
The arrival went off without a hitch. They really liked to talk though. I brought them to the house and showed them around. Told them a bit about where things are on the island. You know, usual stuff.
Ugh, the guests changed the channel on the TV and couldn’t figure out how to get it working again. I had to run out there and hit a couple buttons for them. Seems the batteries in one of the AC remotes died too, so I replaced them while I was there. Then I had to get a couple trucks of water delivered to the house on the hill. That took a good few hours of my afternoon.
My god, people suck! I had two groups of people come by to pick mangoes off the tree. They say they’re related to the owner of the house, but how am I supposed to know. I called them out though, told ’em to at least let me know they’re coming or something instead of just showing up and bothering me with no warning.
Not a whole lot to report. Guests left, had to check on the house. They left the AC running, so I had to turn that off. Did my usual rounds checking on houses. No issues.
Housekeeper cleaned up the vacated villa. Later in the day a realtor came by and showed the house (it’s on the market for a couple million if you’re interested). Once she was done I had to go cover the beds and close the place up.
Went grocery shopping today. Hit up all three stores and still couldn’t get everything I was looking for. I got the most important things though, just not things like chocolate chips, yeast, and ice cream. Took a little under an hour, and spent a couple hundred bucks. All-in-all I’d say it was a successful trip!
I took a day off to veg watching Z Nation. The show is pretty cheesy, but it’s a good way to pass time. I’ve begun bingeing it, and it probably won’t take me long to watch all of it.
Pool Day (Friday)
Ugh, last minute booking for the house on the hill. Handyman was off island so I had to do the heavy lifting. Ran up to the house, checked on everything, moved the furniture outside, and left the housekeepers to clean the place up. Needless to say they weren’t happy with how messy the place got while being empty for months.
Then it was straight on to pools. Every pool was in serious need of water. Other than having to visit each place a couple times it wasn’t too bad. In the end I wasn’t done until after 2pm.
So I made it through the entirety of the series. Good way to fill my time. I enjoyed the cheesiness of the show. Still have the first season of the spin-off to watch.
