I haven’t been writing much these days and apparently, people are starting to notice.
Life has been a little crazy around here with the sick kids, the guitar lessons, the drum lessons, the Holidays, the basketball practices, the looking for job because we are going to have to move, except SCRATCH THAT because we just found out that the Landlord has changed his mind and “isn’t going to sell the house”. (Translation: The Realtor decided not to buy it. Maybe I didn’t have enough pretty candles burning when she came to look at it, because it certainly couldn’t have been the cabinets that made her not want to buy this lovely house!) We have waited for a month for him to tell us what was going on and if he was selling it and when we needed to be out of here.
He plans to put it up for sale again in a year. We agreed to stay so that we can have time to get things in order (get new jobs, save, pay bills off) so we can be in a better place financially and maybe even buy this place when they put it up for sale again. We promised them we’d not move so they don’t have to worry about the house sitting.
I’m still convinced that the whole “We’re selling the house, would you like to buy it?” was their way of letting us know that they were NOT going to fix the cabinets. (Because, the week before he showed up unannounced to offer to sell us the house, he called to raise our rent and he said “don’t worry, we’re not selling it! We’re just raising the rent!) But, whatever. It’s their house, they can do what they want. Maybe we will be in a position to buy this house in a year and then, I can rip those fuckers out and we can have a kitchen that doesn’t make us cry.
I do want to get into the habit of writing on a regular basis again now that things have gone back to (semi) normal around here. I know you’re so happy to hear me say that because you’ve missed my regular updates so bad that it hurts a little on the inside.
**For those of you who lack A Sense of Humor, I was joking. (But seriously, it hurt a little, didn’t it?)
