So why inspect the apartment while I am still living in it?

So I have not even begone to move out of here yet. I gave the end of the month as the date I will be vacating on the proper form and all that. But instead of waiting until I am out of here and the place is properly cleaned, they are inspecting tomorrow (Apr 07, 2010).

This leaves me with no options that are safe and good for my disability at all. I can’t afford to be taking a cab downtown to shop and to see Mom and help her out all the time. So I would be stuck with not helping her at all. This is a great loss for the both of us and she may have to go to a care facility in that event.
