Holiday anticipation... will we have our beautiful home to celebrate them in?

Saturday, November 02, 2013

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Thanksgiving...so lovely!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Christmas...my FAVORITE time of the entire year!

We've had so many lovely holiday celebrations at our home over the past 12 years, I always look forward to the times we open up our home for wonderful meals and entertaining for our many, many friends.

It's a hectic time for us with our retail consignment gallery but we squeeze in special celebrations even so.

So this year I'm looking forward to the holidays but also dreading them at the same time!

Our court date for our summary judgment case goes before the judge on December 4th. This is when the fat lady sings. emoticon I'm hoping for our attorneys to win our case with all of the proof of fraud that has been committed against us during this long crime riddled case that GMAC, now OcWen has cooked up against us to steal our beautiful home in foreclosure proceedings.

Some will say...hey deal with it...move on. But at our age in life moving on isn't so easy anymore. Once you get to your so called golden years you should be entitled to keep what you've spent your entire life working hard for. Not sacrificing your home to help amass the millions that these creepy banks have made for themselves by stealing from good people.

Their tactics I can tell you are worse than the mafia coming to your neighborhood store and shaking you down for 'protection'...right... protection my fat toe!

Especially when you begged for a year to get a modification payment that was a complete lie...just another effort to grab a lot more money while the bankers were cooking up forged and fraudulent documents to cheat their way through the court system. We paid NINE months of modified payments each month being promised NEXT month you'll be on a permanent new plan...look at us...such a good bank helping you out here! emoticon

If we had judges in FL that resolved cases according to the merits of LAW and not the bias of slamming foreclosures through at ANY cost clearing their court dockets in record time we might have a snowball's chance.

BUT...being the realist that I am...I have to look at the reality of the whole sordid mess and be prepared to move on if we have too.

It surely isn't that I didn't give it one HE** of a fight! I contacted Senators, the FL General Attorney, The Consumer Protection Bureau, some upstanding news agencies that I thought might help...actually every Tom, Dick, and Harry that I could possibly think of to shine a light on the perpetual and continual fraud these big banks have gotten away with. Sadly to deaf ears. emoticon

This world has gotten so caught up in the 'crisis of the moment' that the little guy...you know who we are...the ONES that pay for all of their shenanigans and misdeeds...there is precious little time for the people in power to devote to decency and justice for the little guy.

It's just to darn easy to steam roller over us and go on to the next big world event.

This has GOT to stop...we need to stop being SHEEP and start being anarchists! What are our founding fathers saying up there in the vapors that made America the home of the free and the land of the brave?

I'm really, really stressed over the 'save our house' fight.

But I also am wise enough to prepare myself for bad news if that's what we have to contend with. It just SUCKS that my Christmas gift this year may be the shaft from powerful bankers that don't care a whit about our home and what it means to us, real people that live in it and adore it and have treasured it with their friends and family for so many years. To them it's nothing more than a number in their chart of profits. It just makes me sad and mad at the same time!

If you can believe it sadder still.... is our tainted judicial system so completely biased and totally dictated to by the money mongers that pull their puppet strings...that they look the other way and plead stupidity to the facts put right under their noses! It's a sad day in America when you come to realize that the bankers and Wall Street own this country along with the congress and most likely our Presidents as well.

The huge financial settlement that Pam Bondi (FL's AG) orchestrated against the banks to give back to the people who were harmed is such a fiasco it's almost laughable...the biggest amount of that money was used to rehire Judges in retirement so they can throw the good people of FL out of their homes faster! WHAT...yes Lucy...it's the world we live in today. emoticon

In the meantime...we the people...are the least of their concerns in climbing over each other and clawing for the golden ring.

Honestly...for these holidays...I hope they choke on it! emoticon

Keepin' it real...that's the facts on how I feel! emoticon

On a happy note...I lost 2 pounds..even with all of this 'will we have a roof over our head for the holidays' and that's something positive. emoticon emoticon

    It looks beautiful. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Our hearing is tomorrow as our attorney petitioned the courts and the bank has rejected all she has asked for. This is to present evidence. The foreclosure hearing is November 15th. In the meantime the bank is working to get us our 4th modification. We have been in one 3 other times and at the end of the 3 months, they claim we didn't comply? I'll keep you updated. We both just need to keep the faith. God is good all the time!

    Oh Bobbi - I am hoping (as you know) that things work out in your favor and you stay in the house. I know the system is not fair, but it is better that the alternatives. Keep the faith - believe that right will win. It isn't over till it's over.
    Sending all the positive energy I can muster your way! emoticon emoticon

    Will be thinking of you and anxious to hear how it turns out Dec. 4th. Hope you get a fair judge that lets you keep your home. Whatever happens I know you will make the best of it. You are a survivor.

    Well, you ARE dealing with it, and have been for far too long. If the system is so badly handled, I'll just pray that your judge will have a heart, and elect to do the right thing. Why would anyone want to force a foreclosure on people who want to stay and pay? Makes no sense at all. Let's appeal to the justice of the Universe!

    I hope that all will go well and you can put this behind you. But a lot can happen in 30 days. Such a lovely home has no place in the hands of strangers. Keep on fighting as best you can HUGS!

    My neighbors lost their home (and family business) of 25 years in 2012 after the financial collapse of 2008 caused them to have to secure credit for their family owned business with their personal property. It was devastating for them. They raised their children in that home and a year and half later they have bought a new home and are completely gutting it and renovating it. It has rejuvenated them and taught them a new appreciation for what is important.
    What has happened to many Americans in the last 5 years can be summed up in one word ......GREED. Everyone was taking advantage of people who were simply trying to live the American dream. If there is such thing as karma, there will be many 1%'ers who should be quaking in their shoes for what they have done to the American middle class.
    Good luck and I hope everything works out for you.

    It would be SO AWESOME if you won your summary judgment motion! But remember, those are darned tough to win. If the other side can show even the teeniest factual argument in their favor the judge must deny the motion and fraud cases are rife with facts! But those motions also serve as a kind of "testing the water temperature" measure and often cases settle after the judge rules on the motion 'cause the ruling can give a strong indication of how the wind is blowing. But I'm sure your lawyer's told you all that already.

    Wishing you victory and emoticon outcomes! You've been through so much stress and struggle, I would love to see you put this all behind you.

    Well the movin on just may be in our case. Cos with hubby on disability and my long term no longer paying we could lose our house, luckily we have dad who can pay more rent but ....
    So we have thought live in our rv full time, but up here in Canada it isn't that easy... you have to be in your home province for 6 months well the campgrounds aren't open 6 months here and no matter when you figure it to go south, still if you leave when they close mid oct you are back too early for them opening and vice versa.And realisitcally we don't have the money to do rv fulltime comfortably. So then we look at downsizing, and I mean really downsize 600-1,000 sq foot winterized cabin... which I would love. But we would still hae to sell the house, pay what we can in bills and all this can't happen till dad passes... so not wanting my dad gone, we are still at a standstill. So dear girl I so totally understand what you are saying.
    and lol if it were me.......... I would be looking at your old cabin and living a quieter peaceful life, hubby can do his signs, you your jewlry and do the craft circuit!
    HUGS and I hope it works out the best way for you!!!!

    Girl, don't get me started about the government and our judicial system! You know I'll offend someone here if I do! My prayers are with you and your fight - You've done well. I am sending you something to help with the stress - I have no printer here right now, so can't send until Monday. emoticon

    You have clearly fought the hard fight and left no stone unturned. December 4th sounds like a scary date. I will be thinking of you and sending you very positive thoughts your way every day between now and then. It's so frustrating, the injustice of it all. I know this has really taken a toll on you stress-wise. How is your back? I hope you have found some relief somehow at least for that problem.

    We are all here supporting you! We are your cheering squad!

    Please take care of yourself. I worry about you.
