Where the wind blows...

I really like my apartment. It was recently remodeled, I don't pay a lot, BUT...I do have one complaint. I usually wake up on the right side of the bed so I am ready to conquer the day, Carpe Diem! But, the second I open my door, what do I see?!


Yes, that's right, the Lubbock wind blows everyone else's litter onto my front door step. Its like someone found out that I recycle I decided to let me throw away their garbage for them. I didn't nominate myself the "Green Queen," so I'm not quite sure how I got nominated to be the apartment complex trash management. I should get free rent or something.

So how do I respond? Well, I guess I could pray about it because obviously God is involved since mother nature is the one blowing all the trash my way. As for right now, I've just been sweeping up leaves and trash with my ghetto broom (the little blue one in the picture) and my handy piece of cardboard that I use as a dust pan. I have even vacuumed the porch because so much dust accumulates in front of my door and then gets tracked into my apartment.

All types of things come to our front door steps: packages, flowers, prince mine, comes trash. Do not think that I am throwing myself a pity party. I am grateful that at least I do not have solicitors or bombs on my front porch.

Tonight, I begin my supplication to God and mother nature to have this trash be "gone with wind"!
