Home To Stay

Sigh.

Well, we are home. We were lucky enough to get mediation instead of dealing with the judge. There was a huge pile of people and I am sure that we would still be sitting there if we hadn't done mediation.

Our landlord was there, with the treasurer, the previous landlord (he retired at 90 while he was still young), and another guy, the other landlord that I refuse to deal with. It was a frickin circus. Our previous landlord, Mike didn't really need to be there, but he came just to be in our corner.

Really. He talked the new landlord into letting us make payments every week. Since Shawn and I finished paying off his employer, he is back to full payhecks. Winter is coming, and he may have less hours, but I think that we can live with this agreement. The payments are do-able.

Bottom line? We are not going to be homeless. Not this month, anyway.

Maybe our luck is changing. Thanks for all of the prayers, everyone. I am convinced that without all of my friends, we would be looking for moving boxes right now. I'm not kidding.

Thanks :)

Well, there's some good news for ya.

I'm very happy to see that things have worked out between you and the landlord. There's no place like home.

Oh what a relief.

That house, in my opinion, is the best home you've had in twenty years and I want so much for you to be able to stay there.

I do think positive thoughts/prayers make a difference, but you know what?

I think we can make a little bit of luck for ourselves.

HOld you head up high, baby. You're good stuff and you said it yourself- this is an agreement you can live with.

Today is a good day.

Maybe you should tuck the next payment in a thank you card. It's not sucking up, technically, it's gratitude!

Glad to hear the good news, Biddie! It's always nice to have someone in your corner, isn't it? Let's hope things settle down a bit for you and allow you to get on with living.

Yay! It's about time you caught a break. I'm glad it's going to work out. :-)

I always say "good luck" but I don't believe in luck really. I think you are a good person and good is coming to you for a reason.But what the hell, a little luck is always good too.

Babzy said...

Let's hope this is the beginning of a turn around. Take care.

Great that you're able to stay, and that your old landlord said a good word for you. Great news.
