Saw your caption about watching the series and all I have to say is DO IT. It's one of the greatest children's limited series in a long time. I'm a full-on adult but I think it's very neat lol

12:23 am

i believe "over the garden wall" is on Netflix. i only know about this because some people who worked on it are doing the redwall movie and tv show that's in the works.
12:33 am

I got a new tea cup was going to save for the end of month but decided to use it now. I know it has nothing to do with this fandom. But I do not know this fandom! 😔

Wow! Now I really want to play with alcohol inks!
06:27 am

It was so cool, I did it at a ceramics studio, we put on safety gear and put the inks down and lit them on fire on the glass and that's the design it produced, it was so neat!

This was my favorite tea so far this month!
05:05 am
user icon
This one's a really nice berry tea! I spruced up the second steeping with a dash of Yunnan Gold, and wow... really good! I wonder why Adagio doesn't let us blend with that tea...
05:19 am
user icon
Two reasons - 1) they blend fandom teas by hand in a relatively small room. Can’t fit all the tea 2) all the blending teas have to fit a similar cost structure and yunnan gold is a more expensive tea 😢. I run into the same with jasmine yin hao!

Mary, I was drawing it in between trying out the birthday gift my husband gave me early. He can't hide anything from me, I always find stuff early. Anyway, he bought me some stilts that extend up to 4 feet tall. I was walking around in the house last night testing them out, you should have seen the cats giving me looks,lol. I am so excited now I can work on wall murals without climbing up and down and moving the ladder constantly, YAY!! I am sure I will use them for costumes at different times too. :)
08:11 am
user icon
I have never tried to walk on stilts. I can just see your kitties wondering why you are so much taller!
08:33 am
user icon
How exciting, but my stomach just did flip flops reading this and picturing you up so high. My fear of heights has only become stronger as I age...I could not consider doing this. I would probably faint once I was that high up.
08:48 am
user icon
Sue, oh my! My father made stilts for me when I was a young girl. Be careful! (Now I sound like my mother.)
08:54 am
user icon
Oh wow. Stilts!!!! That's just incredible! :)
09:15 am
user icon
Walking on stilts is one thing but I cannot even imagine having the skill or having enough confidence to paint while balancing on 4foot stilts. Honey, you are amazing!
04:57 pm
user icon
Amazing! I would be scared to even try walking on stilts as I am a klutz and would end up spending my tea money on Dr's bills.
06:52 pm

My hibiscus decided to put out 2 more flowers. It is going to get cool soon, so I think these 2 should be it for this year.

Heather, the patch on Fox's chest looks like a tie...all dressed up for the work of the day!
06:42 am

Its so funny, its like a cloud and guessing what you can see in it. I've had others comment on it looking like a dog bone and a tree. Of course folks at work didn't even notice it until the second time he came into the office. They were too busy with the ears the first time! I like it cause the fur is even softer there, so it's my favorite spot to pet.
11:24 am
user icon
Good morning, everyone. So thankful that it is Friday! The last warm day here for awhile, so we're going to head out to the lake late this afternoon to kayak. Within minutes of being on the water, I can feel myself unwind and leave all the week's cares behind me. My favorite way to transition into the weekend!

I find water to be that for me, as well, and may even just stand barefoot in puddles after a rain…. Just maybe…
07:31 am

Nature really is the best elixir after a long, hard week. Have fun, Lilly!

Couldn't agree more! I love sitting by the water or on it in a boat.There is something so calming with that.

Good morning tea friends! I am loving today's photos and art. I have never heard of this fandom. I might add it to watch tonight. We were planning on watching a family movie tonight. Is this an appropriate movie for children? My youngest is 9, but he is pretty sensitive. We just don't watch a lot of movies.
07:25 am
user icon
Chasi, There are some short suspenseful scary moments, but I don't remember any violence.
08:02 am

I love your art today, Sue! In fact, all the details makes me want to watch this fandom. Have a wonderful day!
08:56 am
user icon
Sue, I agree with ChasiTea, your artwork makes me want to watch this! I'll see if I can convince my family to watch with me tonight. We usually do "dinner and a movie" (otherwise known as dinner in front of the TV) as a special treat on Friday nights :)

This is pleasant. It's not as berry as yesterday. I'm going to have to figure out what else I'm tasting. Update: it's the currants. I would have preferred that blackberry be the dominant flavor with vanilla right behind. Currant as more of an accent flavor.
09:02 am

Happy Friday, all! I thoroughly enjoyed today's tea. And, I love the name itself: Songs of the Dark Lantern. How could I not? Have a fabulous day, everyone!

Hi Rachel...I love your teacup!
09:23 am
user icon
Thank you, Carrie. I love crows and ravens. I call the crow on this cup Caw, because she does. I made a crow for a demonstration in my first year of college on the brilliance of corvids. It's just thick black poster board, but she hangs now in my art room!
10:53 am
user icon
You all aroused my curiosity, so thank you! I just watched the first seven episodes. What fun! Your photo homages are great, so many tea-drinkers are fans of this show! (Looking for the right teapot to wear on my head.......)
09:03 am
user icon
So, I didn't like yesterday's tea because of the bitterness but I LOVED today's blend. I think I always need a bit of vanilla and cream to round things out :) So blackberry alone is a nah, but in a blend it's a yay! Happy Sipping and Happy Weekend everyone!

OK, you asked for it! We (Jim & Linda) just got an Adagio Kenya Washed Coffee rewards sample yesterday. We are not coffee experts. I’m not normally a coffee drinker. However, I DO know that I don’t want to get in the way of my wife’s first cup of coffee in the morning! … Setup: Mr. Coffee five cup drip coffee maker. … Brew: Medium bean grind, 15 grams (~three tablespoons) for 25 ounces of water. … Adagio description of tea: Layered notes of citrus accented by sweet sugar cane and milk chocolate. … Our thoughts: Not being experts, we couldn’t detect any of the above flavor nuances. Smooth and typically low bitter aftertastes were noted from start to finish. No “bite” was noted at the end. Otherwise, this coffee tastes fresher and tastier than pre-ground coffee. Linda says that is a really good coffee.
09:20 am
user icon
Thanks for the review, Jim! I often don't notice those flavor nuances either, especially with coffee. But a fresher coffee with no bitterness is a good thing. Looking forward to giving this a try down the road.
10:13 am

I just ordered one of each....can't wait to try them! Glad your wife enjoyed her cuppa joe!

Heads up tomorrow is Global Cat day and Feral Cat day. We have a family of feral cats that seem to be moving into our bushes in the front of the house. The cutest Grey kitten… who currently loves people sucked us into providing food. Afraid of more cats, but just don’t have the heart to not offer some form of food and shelter. I may have to catch a picture today for tomorrow!
09:25 am
user icon
You are so kind to take care of them...it's hard not too. We have a feral cat program...It's wonderful and we participate whenever we get a visitor. All we have to do is catch them and pay for a rabies shot $5...they spay and neuter for free!!

Vanilla and berry flavors? Can't go wrong! This is very delicious. It reminds me of something I got in one of those monthly boxes that give you snacks from other countries, there was this Russian marshmallow thing that had currant jam and was coated in chocolate. It was to die for!

Thank you! I love him 😁. Mom gave me the fox and my SIL a narwhale for Christmas last year!

My coffee press (which I use at the office for both tea and coffee) has started leaking out of the bottom??? I've had my eye on the ingenuities for a while and I'm wondering if anyone's tried using them to make coffee. Would the coffee make all tea made subsequently taste like coffee, d'ya think?
09:42 am
user icon
I've found that it's best to never use something that was used for coffee for tea. I'm super sensitive to that coffee residue taste and it totally ruins tea. It's one of my pet peeves at hotels when they interchange the dispenser canisters for coffee and hot water. Not sure about the ingenuitea in specific though.
10:04 am
user icon
I agree with you 110%, Carrie. :)
10:26 am
user icon
Yep! Even using a plastic travel mug that has had coffee in it will ruin my tea for me :( I only buy ceramic travel mugs now as a result.
10:38 am
user icon
I'm very sensitive to the taste of coffee, I really don't like it, so I try never to use something for tea that has previously been used for coffee. My husband got into trouble for using one of my tea mugs for coffee, LOL. It seemed like it took forever to get the coffee taste out of it. :) Just my two cents. God bless...

I hosted two French exchange teachers once. The look on their face when I told them I did not have a coffee maker was kinda priceless
10:42 am
user icon
I agree! I used to be a coffee drinker, but now I think it tastes like dirt!!!

With my daughter's help I was finally able to get a square picture to put up. I think it worked well to be able to get in the photo what I wanted to show.

So my mom, brother and I are road tripping to South Carolina and I’m in the backseat. So I did a thing: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-q4biuUNi2cLlf9r1vEhWIc8lOpKqd9RdlKBVVYViVo/edit Let me know if I’m missing anything! I’m working on my phone so it’s not formatted or pretty yet.
10:22 am
user icon
That is just awesome, Elizabeth! Just awesome! Maybe Ilya can get a CommuniTEA FAQ page up and this should be the source document. You rock!!!
10:25 am
user icon
This is so great! I know this would have been amazing to have had when I joined. I feel like another common question from people who get a free week is "how do I buy the rest of the month?"
10:46 am
user icon
Ooo good one. Adding that in.
10:51 am
user icon
Love this Elizabeth!
11:20 am
user icon
That is great Elizabeth. How and who should I contact if there is an issue with my order? Oh and have a blast on the road trip. Is Leia in the car too?
11:29 am
user icon
She’s not. Staying home with a friend checking in. This is an 8 hour trip and she struggles to go 20 minutes. It would be miserable for us all! 😅. Adding the order question!
01:53 pm
user icon
Wow ! Thank you for doing this !
11:53 am
user icon
You’re awesome!
12:19 pm
user icon
This is awesome! I'll be sure to add these to the communiTEA section of the FAQ! Well done!
03:51 pm
user icon
Thank you! Glad they’re helpful! 😋
04:10 pm
user icon
This is GREAT! I would have so appreciated this when I joined.
08:57 pm

That is such a big help , Elizabeth !!! And you did it so nicely. You represent the caring spirit that I find is in this group
10:06 pm

Hi everyone. I would love to give each of you a big hug to show my appreciation to this lovely group that enriches my life
10:42 am

We are so happy that you are a part of this group, Karen! It’s been wonderful having you join us!
11:00 am

Glad you are here, you make it even better!

Hugs to you mom.
12:06 pm
user icon
That’s so sweet and I agree! 🥰 I’m sorry I only saw your chat message after midnight so could not respond then, but the coffee samples you got will be the whole bean. Per Tea Talk right now we are told that they will be offering ground coffees in the future as well as a coffee grinder. Other members say that coffee grinders are not very expensive and in a pinch you could use a NutriBullet to grind them instead. I don’t know much about coffee myself except that I don’t like it. 😝
12:25 pm

Hugs right back Karen! Glad you joined and share your positivity with us!

I’m trying a tea from a different company that was gifted to me, it’s “cream of Earl Grey”. It tastes nothing like earl grey. Anyone familiar with this flavor?
10:45 am
user icon
I've never heard of it, but I didn't have much experience before Adagio.
09:52 pm
user icon
Love the tea and this series! If you haven't seen "over the garden wall" it's a beautiful cartoon that I think adults can enjoy even more than children (that being said its 100% child friendly too)
10:51 am
user icon
I've never heard of it, Emily. Do you know if it is also a book? I'll have to check it out.
10:57 am
user icon
Marlicia, I think it is a 7 book series and a 33 part kindle series.
11:19 am
user icon
I've been meaning to watch this, and I've heard that fall is the time to do it!
11:03 am
user icon
I'd never heard of it before. Looks so fun, I think I'll watch with my daughter.
01:33 pm

I’m going to try and get into the tea chat, but I think it’s going to time in with our lunch stop and I might be on driving duty after. If I can’t make it, can someone lobby for the drooling teamoji? 🤪🤤
11:05 am
user icon
I second that...we need a drool TEAmoji! 🤤
11:23 am
user icon
Agreed!
11:24 am

Im looking forward to Fridays tea chat! I will have to step out of it for a brief time but I hope I will be able to get back in before its over. I hate the idea of missing out on any insider knowledge and friendly convo hahaha
11:31 am

I peeked at the November calendar. It looks so tempting! I don't drink as much tea when it's hot so skipped the summer boxes, was planning on buying October's but my mom got sick so I had to go to Florida and I missed the deadline, and now I'm still in Florida and it's hot! To buy or not to buy... Why do I already know all of your answers??
11:34 am
user icon
Hope your mom is doing better😘
11:44 am
user icon
She’s doing much better, thank you!
08:05 pm
user icon
lol -- we're pretty predictable as a group when asked whether to buy or not to buy....
11:44 am
user icon
Hi Melanie! I hope your Mom is doing better! Yes, U know us well, I say buy…I have found cold brew tea is a refreshing way to taste the teas as opposed to drinking them hot. I just use mason jars and stick it in the fridge the night before. I’ve found a lot of the teas I prefer cold brew. Atleast it’s an alternative to hot beverages in a hot climate.
11:47 am
user icon
Thank you, Julia. I’ll have to try the cold brew. I usually prefer hot tea but some tea could be delicious cold. I’ll have to experiment.
08:07 pm
user icon
You could always get it and cold brew or save them for later?
12:29 pm

Love this tea

I'm going to attempt to join in on today's tea chat. I'm at work, but the boss has yet to show and it's really quiet in the office this morning. I may not be able to contribute to the conversation, but I'd love to still listen in.
11:46 am

I still have laryngitis so I won't be saying much!
01:01 pm

Hope you feel better soon, Christine!

Loved the tea for today!

This was a really perfect tea for today, cloudy and overcast. Happy Friday ya'all!
11:54 am

Rock fact makes me think of Sifl and Olly and I have NO idea if anyone on here is even familiar with that. 😂
12:19 pm

This rings a bell with me, but I can't put my finger on what it is exactly
02:19 pm

Great tea!
12:32 pm

Gemma planted herself firmly on the work laptop bag. She clearly did not want me to go to work today. I complied.
12:40 pm

What a cute little face!
01:28 pm

I really taste the currant in this one!
12:50 pm

@Sue I absolutely LOVE the drawing today!
01:03 pm

Same!
01:26 pm

I did not see the link to the tea chat. Is it still going? I am always an hour behind!
01:14 pm

Yup! Meeting ID: 81188394229 and password: 876914
01:25 pm

I am late too. Aw well...I will be on time someday. What's new? Any fun things coming our way?
01:35 pm
user icon
So far just coffee :)
03:52 pm
user icon
I got a whiff of bubblegum again when opening today's packet, though not as strong as yesterday! I have no idea why the blackberry tea smells like bubblegum to me!

Me too :-)

quite so! 😻
06:48 pm

I apologize for misspelling a word in my caption. It has been corrected.
02:15 pm
user icon
Not the first time and won’t be the last! For whatever reason (for me at least), it seems easier to misspell things on this page than elsewhere!!!
02:20 pm
user icon
❤ Thank you! Someone got snarky about it during today's Tea Talk.
05:40 pm
user icon
well, that person was a jerk, and if i had been there i probably would've told them off! there's no reason to be unkind over a typo. even if you are a grammar Nazi like myself 😾 (eta: especially since i legit just did a typo of tols instead of told and forgot how to spell legit.)
06:46 pm
user icon
Thank you, Sarah! I had to leave shortly after that, and I hope someone did say something. This person was also rudely commenting on the quality of some of the photos, as well.
09:38 pm

Double post! Teamoji dump!
09:38 pm

The problem was my goofy brain, not your caption -- I don't necessarily process well. Once I read something about a "sand wich on the beach," and couldn't make the leap to sandwich. Kept thinking witches of sand, which made no sense in context of the paragraph. lol Today my brain hiccuped on lair, and couldn't make heads or tails of it til I realized it might be liar. Sorry I'm so slow on the uptake. :-)
03:43 pm

If I read something too fast, I will see words that aren't there. Lol!

So, I'm toying with sending someone a CommuniTEA gift box with my accolades. Does anyone know if the gift box is on the same schedule as those who purchase? I mean, if I send it before October 19th (right?), will the recipient get November?
02:44 pm
user icon
Yes. There will be a QR code in the box that will prompt them on how to connect the communiTEA to a new or existing account so they get all access!
02:44 pm
user icon
I got an A in this course! My GPA is still 4.0. I need a break though. I am so grateful that I have three months off. Yay!! With which Wicked tea should I celebrate, tea people?
03:30 pm
user icon
Yay!! Congrats Rachel! A pumpkin potion latte sounds yummy!
03:36 pm
user icon
Thank you, Carrie! I will do that. :)
03:45 pm
user icon
This tea is exactly what I needed, Carrie. Delicious!
04:06 pm

Congratulations! I say all of them.
05:51 pm

Congrats Rachel!!!

Congrats Rachel! I hope you have the best 3 months off.

I just ordered the November box!!
03:34 pm

@Michelle Levan(so this doesn't get lost)- I can't shake that mentality because I have several tins of tea from Teavana and now they're pretty irreplaceable once they're gone! But I know they'll just lose flavor sitting in my cupboard for years on end, so I should just enjoy them. I just miss that job!
03:37 pm
user icon
It took us a long time to finish our stock but that’s what forced me to find Adagio. We did still end up having to toss a couple of the random teas that were bought for my daughter that she no longer wanted.
05:54 pm
user icon
Today's tea is so much better than yesterday's tea (which I had to dump out). It just tasted too "Fake" in my mind. This is a lovely fruity black tea blend!
03:41 pm
user icon
Hi guys, how was tea chat? What did I miss?
03:44 pm
user icon
Hi Cindi! It was a long, rambling talk today. Went for about 3 hours. Talked a lot on fandom blends, copywrite laws and what can/can't be on fandom blends, teachers & preschool teachers salaries, shipping speeds, the tea monthly calendars and a few other things. I then had to drop for a bit, and when I re-joined, there were less people. Near the end we talked a bit about the 5 oz tins being discontinued for certain blends, physical stores, the California warehouse that shut down last year, and a few other things. I did talk a bit about some Zhang Ping Shui Xian from masters that I was drinking today. 7 steeps and it was still going strong. I showed a bit of my tea corner in my office area. Also talked about doing an after work Tea Talk or something.
04:10 pm
user icon
Thank you so much Jim !!! I really would enjoy getting in on that discussion more but just isn’t possible. It is so nice to have it recapped for us. I for one certainly appreciate it
05:15 pm
user icon
Ooh, that sounds like a good chat! I'm down for doing an after work tea chat. It's pretty impossible to attend for me, unless it's like a school holiday or something.. Trotting off to Masters to check out the Zhang Ping Shui Xian (I have no idea how to pronounce that, but it reads cool) now!
05:26 pm
user icon
I miss the California warehouse! It was so much faster at getting teas here to me in Colorado!

Todays tea makes me sad..
03:46 pm

why?😿
03:53 pm

Why, Bethany?
03:57 pm

I don't know you, Bethany. But a tea that makes you sad is not good. Why does it make you sad, M'Lady?

What happened to the frequent cups points system? I can’t see the things I can gets with points anymore! ☹️
03:58 pm
user icon
At the very top of the page(using a browser on the computer) there should be a link that says "rewards" with a little piggy bank, next to the "account" link. Is it not there?
04:00 pm
user icon
It’s there, but it only shows how many points until next reward. It doesn’t give options anymore for teas that you can win
04:03 pm
user icon
Huh. Mine still works. The coffee is at the top and I have to scroll past all that, but I can still see things.
04:09 pm
user icon
Mine has a little pig that says "earn points" (instead of rewards which used to be there) and when you click on it you get a box that has things you can do to earn points, and how you have already earned them, but no rewards. It's weird.
05:29 pm
user icon
thats so weird, when I go to the rewards page, everything it still listed.
04:08 pm
user icon
How many points do you have? Maybe you don't have enough to anything yet.
04:16 pm
user icon
Yeah I noticed that about a week ago. You have to type in "rewards page" in the search bar and then click onto the icon for it that pops up
04:06 pm
user icon
thanks; I'll have to try that. I like being able to see how many points to go until I can obtain certain products.

My picture today was right tea but wrong packet. I’m getting all mixed up. Haha must be the extra caffeine. I am getting far too much lately and drinking it all day. I drank three cups of today’s tea with breakfast.
04:32 pm

Didn't love it but enjoyed it. I am super curious about the show now though and will have to watch an episode tonight!

Great description!
06:24 pm

Another flavored tea. I expect this will be like most I've tried -- smells nice but tastes less than it smells.
06:27 pm
user icon
Not bad. I sweetened it with honey that I got for free here in an offer a while back, and I think it's a bit better that way. My wife prefers other sweeteners over honey though, and I don't usually use honey either (but this seemed like a good tea to try it with).
06:35 pm

I am forever missing tea chat. Maybe next week
06:35 pm

I missed the Tea Talk a lot early on, too. Set a calendar reminder or repeating alarm or something to remind you -- that's what I did.
06:43 pm

I want to make it one of these weeks, but I'm afraid work will always end up conflicting with it. :(

Today’s blender has a wonderful no caffeine blend called Toxic Blossom. It’s more sweet than it’s name implies. I’m making a cup right now.
06:37 pm
user icon
Well i'm a bit bummed. I got my pic up, boiled my water, poured it over my tea.... and was hit with the painful smell of hot vinegar.
06:47 pm
user icon
Once my boyfriend and I were staying at family's house and I brought my kettle and kept it in the room we stayed in. I poured some water from his bottle on the nightstand, made tea, and thought that it smelled a little off... It would appear he brought some clear mouthwash in a water bottle. The kettle had to get washed many times.
09:42 pm
user icon
I guess the other day when my girlfriend was descaling our kettle, she forgot to rinse it out. So I just boiled vinegar and poured it over my tea. If smells alone could singe hair, I'd be bald.
06:47 pm
user icon
Oh that sucks. I have had that happen to me before too!
06:57 pm
user icon
It smelled good when i opened the packet, at least! Sad I can't try it haha. I'll just have to have something else.
06:50 pm
user icon
You could perhaps try rinsing the tea, then re-steeping?
06:51 pm
user icon
Since I was standing directly over the cup/kettle when I poured it, I ended up having to step away when the smell hit me, so I left it a bit too long. It's a shame but It's ok.
06:58 pm
user icon
I enjoyed today's tea much better than yesterday's. It wasn't as bitter straight and held up well to a little bit of cream.
06:57 pm
user icon
I just ordered November's box and 10 more teas. I can see how this can get addicting!
07:07 pm

I've got teas in my cart.....LOL

Goodnight, everyone. Off to have a date night with my husband. :) Have a wonderful evening! God bless...

Hello all, this is my first time with CommuniTEA, I was given this week's box of teas for free as an introduction. I usually enjoy the full-bodied-ness of coffee, but I love chai teas and am hoping to find more tea flavors that can give me the same type of feels. With that being said, today's tea was a pleasant surprise for me because I'm not a fan of the currant flavor, however this tea with the raspberry hints really worked!
07:40 pm

Welcome! It’s always fun when you are pleasantly surprised by a new blend. CommuniTEA is great for exploring.

Still better than my tea journey today!
09:46 pm

Try a bombilla . Traditionally used for drinking yerba mate but it works for all loose leaf teas you just want to drop in the cup and drink from if you don't mind having to leave Steep there the whole time, it looks like a spoon straw that filters

Absolutely utterly entirely exhausted! BUT we had an amazing day!!! Exceeded the amount of dragons I thought would be adopted today and broke my sales record! Finally checking into our Air BnB, all tuckered out and ready to go tomorrow for day 2! I'm gonna try to make it till midnight for my Tea Photo for tomorrow, since its a REALLY EPIC picture in my opinion <3
10:30 pm

Yeah! Sounds awesome, congratulations.
11:55 pm

Well that's certainly something
10:32 pm

Huh. I still had the homepage up from yesterday and it managed to let me overwrite yesterday's photo... And I can't fix it, so now I look very bad from having seemingly "posted the wrong day" 😰
10:37 pm

In the packet this tea sure smells like it’ll be quite bitter.
10:48 pm
user icon
We've had that "haha youI thought!" October heat wave so I abandoned the Communitea until today. I really wanted to try this blend and I'm disappointed that I don't like it more. I really love the forest berries flavor and I was expecting a version of that with vanilla added, but that's not what this is 😂 It's still good, and I'm mostly enjoying the cup. Just kind of wishing I'd made the yunnan golden needle instead.

I'm a big fan of currant in general. Not a very common flavor for drinks, but it works well here
11:42 pm

Hi Ct, it's almost a new tea day! Thought I'd hop on and say how much I enjoyed this fandom chilled. I also liked it full strength when I brewed 2 scoops ( using an Adagio's tea scoop) in a 12 oz. mug and let it steep for 4 min. Since I bought a sample tin in Sept. I brewed many cups today. I thought it might be bitter if I went over 3 min. but I ended up liking it more that way. I usually use honey and agave to sweeten so that may have helped the taste.

back at work with bookkeeping and some property management. A tenant today miscalculated the time it took to move 80 boxes of books and personal effects. had to rearrange utilities and moving date with phone work and negotiations.
11:46 pm
user icon
sounds like what i would do; I'm awful at judging how long something will take me. i hope everything for that person, on their end and yours, resolves quickly without any more headaches for anyone ♥️
11:49 pm
user icon
we worked it out, fortunately. I usually tell tenants to start packing early 'cause cleaning, packing and loading a u haul gets stressful if you try to cram them in just a weekend or two.
