If you had asked me 5 years ago, where I thought I would be in 5 years, you definitely would not have gotten this answer! Due to my recent issues, I have finally decided to give up my house. I obviously can't continue to pay rent there as well as the bills that I have been maintaining even though we aren't staying there, since I am not working.
I've been looking for a job, only on the internet for now. I've applied for Unemployment Insurance; I just hope that the company I worked for doesn't fight it. I contacted Child Support but I forgot they don't have my new phone number so I have to contact them again. I pay Child Support and I receive it so of course I'm going to have to have mine suspended and his raised. I'm sure these both will involve a court date.
I have to get the things out of my house by the end of this weekend. Yup, you read that right. I obviously haven't even begun to pack since there's no electric over there and it's quite difficult to see everywhere in the house, but did you also know that our weather just broke and the TONS of snow that we got back in February finally melted? You can probably still see some mounds, but definitely not like they were before.
Another problem and a reason why I have to move out this weekend? Since the electric's off, the Sub-pump won't kick on, and all of that snow melting added with the rain we've gotten, is currently in my basement. Soaking my stuff.
So for the next few days I'll be securing a storage unit, trying to figure out what needs to come with me and what can go to storage, if I can unload anything to any of my ex-neighbors, etc. I also have to secure manpower and vehicles because I obviously can't afford a moving truck or van.
Luckily there's a local storage unit that the first month is free. I'm sure I can scrape up the money to pay that next month.
I'm trying to be optimistic - it's just hard. I worked so hard to turn my life around and here I am. It's alot to deal with and digest. But I'm making it, and I'm praying all the time.
