A Rude Awakening
It's been about 2 years since we've had a working scale in the house.  Well, working for me.  Since that time, our scale has decided to guesstimate just how much I weigh.  During our "Operation: Sweating for Seoul" mission , it was a bit annoying.  But once...

48 Hours in San Francisco
I've only been to San Francisco a time or two-- and only for a day.  It was never really a destination I HAD to see.  Sure, if given the chance I would vacation there-- but we had never made specific plans to go.  So when Jason got home, we decided to take ...

Getting to Know Sacramento
Now that Jason is back home, I wanted to show him our new hometown.  We moved to Sacramento right before he left for South Korea-- so we didn't get much time to explore the area.  I saved a lot of things for Jason, and I did a little exploring myself while ...

Thanksgiving is Alright for Fighting
I haven't spent a lot of time not posting to this blog.  Mostly, I've been filling my time trying to figure out what it was I did to entertain myself before I met Jason.  I've been binge watching a lot of TV, which doesn't feel right-- but hell, I only have...

Food Slut
It's time for me to come clean about something I'm not proud of.  Despite my wanting to get my act together and finally get back into a routine of healthy eating and being active-- it's all just words.  Once I log off my computer, I plop my much bigger boot...

Lemon Chicken Soup
Spring has sprung!  And to me that means sunshine, flowers, and the beginning of the fresh fruit and vegetable season.  Jason and I are working on starting our own vegetable and herb garden-- more on that later-- and that will soon mean lots of delicious re...

As many of you who have been following my weight loss journey know-- there is a point where I get discouraged, start binge eating and gain back the weight I worked so hard to lose.  Usually that point comes hand in hand with a big life event.  The passing o...

UHG.... Crazy Neighbors
I really wanted to write an update last night-- because as you may have noticed, toward the end of the week I dropped the ball.  I owe you guys a craft, an update and a fitness tip.  All that is forthcoming-- and I had every intention of writing something.....

We have been renting with Cascade Community Management for nearly three years. We just moved out of our house, and up until that point we were generally happy with our treatment. The original leasing agent we signed with, Angie-- no longer works there. She was helpful, and quick to get back to us. For most of our tenancy we dealt with the accounts manager, Vicki. She was great and always answered any questions we had. When we needed to be late with the rent after my boyfriend got laid off, she worked with us to make sure we could pay our rent on time. Now the reason for our low review. Our maintenance requests weren't always fulfilled, and if they were it was after we had called several times. Our roof was leaking when we moved in. It took three months for them to fix it. And there was no communication to us about when the roofers would be there. At the time I worked overnights, and had to try and sleep through hammering on the roof above. Then, one winter our house was infested with mice. My boyfriend had to call several times, before they sent someone out. There is still trash at the house left over from the last tenants, that they said they would take care of and never did. The blinds were never replaced like they said they would be, and the electric wiring in the hallway is out of wack. When we put in our move out notice, we never received any call or letter saying they got it. We were in the office three times, and had to find out from the water bureau when we went to shut off service that there was a problem with the date we wanted to move out. When we called to speak to Jessica Brown-- the leasing agent put in charge of our property after Angie left-- she was short with us, and treated us like we stole something from her. I briefly lost my temper with her, and the agency acted like I had walked in the office with a gun and threatened their families. Since that time, I have apologized and was ignored. They skipped out on our final walk through and when we called to ask about it told us they wouldn't work with us any longer. We have no idea if we'll see our security deposit, and are incredibly upset by the entire experience. I would say if you're looking for a place to rent from, take these reviews with a grain of salt-- and know that this company is poor with communication to tenants unless you're dealing with the accounts manager Vicki.
