Friday Fill-Ins!

1. I have a history of not communicating well.

2. Real estate law is something I wish I knew.

3. I'm eating (or recently ate) a roast beef sammich.

4. I love to be on the road.

5. So that's it, that's the end.

6. Another question is better than nothing!

7. And as for the weekend, last night I was looking forward to our annual fundraiser for the United Way, today my plans included watching my Dawgs play LSU and tomorrow, I want to watch the Dolphins and hang with my hubby!


We got some bad news this week. The house that we are renting, which we JUST moved into about two months ago, has gone into foreclosure. We're still not sure what that means for us. It could mean moving again before we're ready (and we REALLY don't want to leave this house). Or it could mean an unforeseen opportunity to buy the house (although we're not really ready for THAT, either). I'm hoping for the latter. We love the house and the neighborhood, and our long-range plan was to try to buy it. I was heartbroken when I heard, but I'm in fix-it mode now. So we're withholding rent, putting it essentially in escrow in our savings account, since the JERK who entered into the lease with us in July knew he hadn't paid his mortgage since April, and I refuse to pay him another red cent to live here. If the bank wants us as tenants, we'll happily pay them, but we'd rather try to work out a sweet deal on the purchase of the property. Time will tell, I guess, but it's hard to just sit here and wait.

Wow...that is harsh news. The man that rented the house to you is a JERK. I wish you luck on getting the house at a great price!!! That would be awesome.

Thanks! We're trying to look at it as a blessing in disguise.
