It's been a long time!

When one door closes...


...another one opens!

So, we were supposed to move into our new place on Saturday, March 23rd. However, on Tuesday, March 19th (Henry's 5th birthday), the new landlord called Jacob at 11:30 am to say that he was "no longer comfortable" renting to us. WTF does that mean??? To this day, we have no idea. I do know that he has not yet paid back the $1,100 security deposit we paid, nor the $1,100 first month's rent. We signed the lease at the end of January so we had a binding contract. This man has messed with the wrong people, let me tell you! We have filed a small claims case for $8,700 (this includes the $2,200 owed that we already paid plus $6,500 for breach of contract and pain and suffering). We also filed a complaint with the fair housing council. I am not one to arbitrarily sue anyone but let me tell you...I will nail this fucker's balls to the wall over this!

So, after we "recovered" from the shock and undid everything that had been scheduled (movers, utilities, cleaners, etc.), we decided that we were done dealing with landlords. We didn't know if we'd be able to but we decided to buy a house. Jacob filled out all the necessary paperwork for a VA loan and has been pre-approved for large mortgage (we have no intention of using all of it) plus a home improvement loan all at a ridiculously low rate and without me being involved at all (it appears as though his credit is finally fixed as it has soared over 800!!). So, on the weekend, with our home choices in hand, we drove around for hours looking at the neighborhoods and outsides of the houses trying to narrow our search down to our top 5. We actually got it down to a top 3 and called to schedule appointments to view. We found out that one of the houses was indeed too good to be true and had major foundation issues (no thank you!!). The other two were able to fit us in at 6pm and 6:45pm. We were disappointed with the first showing even though it was always a top pick. We went to the second showing after being out looking at house since about 10am. We were getting pretty exhausted over all this. To say we loved it was an understatement! Of course, it is in high demand as we were the 8th showing that day! But, we had the pre-approval so we decided to put in an offer (which took almost 2.5 hours to complete all the paperwork). We left about 9:15 and got word that our offer was accepted by 10pm that night! OMG! We're buying a house! **sqeeee**

Now comes the inspection next weekend and if that and the appraisal go well, the plan is to close on 5/1. We will then take about 30 days to paint/decorate/etc. and move in at the end of May. I'm still shocked at how fast this is going!! I am including pics of the new house below. Please keep your fingers crossed that this all works out!!!

In the meantime, Jacob and Henry are both doing very well!!

I probably wouldn't have such an issue if Kyle wa sn't autistic and wasn't so affected by small changes. It's hard enough on my son to go 3 weeks without seeing his father, then you add in a woman and several kids he doesn't know and it throws my son for a loop. His father has a habit of going from woman to woman and isn't stable, so this isn't something I want for my son.

It's a great looking house, and a massive yard, wow! Anywhere here new that is settled enough to live is selling tiny yards, really, unless the house is ancient. My yard is large for here and it's no where nearly that big, but I'm in a large regional centre (for here, lol)
How exciting. Excellent timing re the fixing of credit. We don't use the same scores as you do, so no idea how our system rates credit, but you get that..

This house was actually built in 1954. We are looking in an area that will, for the most part, have bigger yards because it's not in a major metropolitan area but more on the outskirts. We want that so Henry can play safely in the yard and we can get him a dog.

I bought mine from Bath & Body Works. It's Lavender and Chamomile and can be found with their aroma therapy stuff. It's the one that promotes sleep. I have the oil (it's body/massage oil that can be burned as well) and the pillow mist. I don't remember the mg I am taking, but I bought "nature made" and I am just taking one pill daily. My doctor actually recommended that.

I hope that helps some.

RYN: Yes I have. The bank says they can't do anything about it. I've tried with them several times. I am going to call the lawyer and see what can be done..ugh.

Thank you so much! I will. I think I've earned it, too. =]

If Kyle had a father that I could trust with his special issues, I would gladly welcome the break as well. The problem is, he knows nothing about his son and doesn't care to know, therefore he can't be (or won't allow himself to be) around him for more than a few hours at a time. He hasn't seen Kyle since the end of July..way too long for a child whose life is based on strict routine. But Todd doesn't care..about anyone but himself. Oops, I went off on a tangent lol, sorry!

I feel that at some point in the game you're playing god. If it's meant to happen, it will. This is something I am trying to work through, though, because of everything we are currently doing. I never thought we'd go this far and I'm trying to find the line. I have nothing against other people doing it, but I'm not completely comfortable with it.


[Love, RebekahStar|0 likes] [|reply]

She refused to do it. Said she has zero will to keep trying anymore. That people just fall out of love and that's that.
I know I'll eventually be ok. I just hate feeling lost like I have been.

Thanks for commenting on our diary! Looks like a great home, congratulations!

Amen to that bit about death sucking extra during the holidays! This is actually the first time I've lost a loved one during the holiday season, and I am not a fan. Lol.

I don't understand Randi's reaction still. Dillon said that he talked her through what he and I had discussed, but I think she's strangely jealous of what's happening to me and the support I'm getting. I'll be here when she pulls her head out.

It is being sized but I love it and cant wait to proudly wear it!!
Yep...I was here!

Yes, we are! Seeing how its demise is close, we thought we'd give Bloop diary a shot. You're welcome to stay around & enjoy the show.

It's not the best. After he nearly died a year and a half ago, he's been struggling. He had a severe stroke before he was taken, too. He's going to have knee surgery while he's there, though, so maybe he'll be able to walk again.


[Love, RebekahStar|0 likes] [|reply]

yes there will be! I am glad that you like it! I am actually posting the next "chapter" as we speak.

It's not just the pregnancy, though. It's everything going on. It's just too much.

Thank you, I really hope so. I've been trying to hard to make this work and I know he cares about me, I just want him to see that I could be as good of a person as his last friend.

[hollowsoul|0 likes] [|reply]

Thank you! I sure hope it is. Actually. I know it is. This guy is as close to perfect as I think one can get. Not totally perfect, but perfect enough for me.
