I started out my new job this week, working for this company that advertises that they have the best Huntsville apartments. I have been doing odd jobs for another guy while I was in high school and after I graduated I kept on doing the same thing. I was thinking about getting a landscape trailer and doing that full time, but instead I got on this job. I basically do what needs to be done around the places that they own, so long as it is within my abilities. For instance I know how to fix a leaky faucet. My Dad taught me how to do it. I have seen him replace a toilet, but you would not ask me to do it if you wanted it to look as good as it might. I hope move the appliances in and out of the apartments. If someone moves out they usually get rid of the old stuff and replace it with new stuff.
I take care of the grounds for the most part. It is something that I know how to do. I plant flowers and do the string trimming and when it gets to be warmer I will have a lot of grass to mow. Right now the grass is not growing all that much because it is winter, although that does not last that long here in Alabama. I am sort of hoping that I can turn this in to something better, but for the moment this is what I have and I make pretty okay money doing it. A lot of people do not have jobs at all and aside from that I am getting a room to stay in. It is not a real apartment, but it is a big enough place for me to live in.
