House news/updates

Friday, August 23, 2013

I can't remember whether I mentioned my house issues here or not, so back story is that my house has been foreclosed on. I expected this as my expenses in this drafty old house far exceeded my income. I have been advised to be out by Monday and I didn't think that this would be too difficult, well it was terrifying!! Truly terrifying as there isn't any rentals on the market! The paper list anywhere from 3 one day to maybe 15 another. Craigslist had most people not answering phones or if they did they were rented already. The paper listings were also mostly already rented, or no dogs.

No who in their right mind would turn away such cuties???

Anyway, I noticed a sign on a side road in town advertising a trailer for rent, I checked it out, gasped in horror as it is old, small and tiny! I decided to continue down the road thinking that I might just get lucky, then when I had just about decided to turn around the road ended and right there was a local property management companies sign saying "For Rent". Yup I was the first one to see it, not even up on the web page yet, turned in my application and just got my approval today and my move in date is on Monday. (While waiting on my approval I kept looking and let me say wow these places were bad and two were in less than nice areas.) I will post some pictures on Monday of the new house, which has lots of room for the pups.

I had to take some time today too batch cook and I had my overused phone on the charger when it rang, so I ran down the hallway into my room and tripped over a 10 lb free weight and took a header. Two right toes are painful, I don't think that they are broken, and my left knee is scraped. I will see if anything bruises in the morning. Yes I am my own worse enemy!

Overall this just proves that I do have some silver lining inside my own personal thunderstorms.

    I am so glad to know someone who would not give up their dogs because they had to move. I would live in a tent before I'd give up any one of mine. I hear the excuse of having to move as the reason to get rid of a pet too often.

    Hope those toes heal up quickly. Hugs to you, Linda
