The LL left the Living room drapes for our use, hung from the above rod, which was never properly installed (I mentioned this earlier on in my tenancy, LL refused to hire a handyman "just to fix a curtain rod, so I had a handyman add a screw into the existing anchor in the sheetrock). There are 8 panels hung on this thinner rod, part of the reason, I suspect, as to why it pulls away from the wall. Special needs boy moved the curtains one day, and once again (it's happened 4 times?) one end of the rod came out (the 2 rods are precariously held together in the middle-seriously should be duct taped) and the rod crashed onto the floor, this time, cracking the "ceramic" finial. Sigh.
DX agreed to superglue it together;I checked, these are no longer made. We'll reinstall the drapes and rod, turning the repair side to the back, where it won't be seen. This a gray area for me, I am struggling with this. Ll has been great for the most part (recent "disappointment: the condition of her front beds which needed mulch for 2 years were addressed by my wallet as a peace keeping measure, but it is NOT in the lease that I am obligated to do so.
My moving out inspection is the 13th, I am a bit anxious about it. I've followed all written agreements of the lease, but am leary that she is not expecting any normal wear/tear and we HAVE kept the home in awesome, clean state. I'll be glad when this is over.
