Love note from the IRS, stink bomb from the landlord

In my mailbox today were two letters: from the IRS a letter informing me that due to an error in calculating my tax return I am now due a refund of $300; from my landlord a letter informing me that my rent will be going up by $20 a week. The Lord giveth and he taketh away.

I am considering more seriously now than my idle fantasies of a few days ago of looking for a different place. After all, 2 years is an awfully long time to go without moving boxes....
