So my wonderful landlord sent me a text today saying that if I don’t come up with rent money by the 18th, she’s going to evict us.
Let that sink in a second…
That hit both Greg and I like a ton of bricks. We have somehow always come up with rent, even in the worst of times. But this time is looking a bit ominous.
I’ve been working my butt off writing, and we’re selling just about everything we own on ebay, and are no closer to coming up with all of the money. We’ve paid all of our other bills, but haven’t come up with the rent.
So if anyone wants to make a donation, we accept paypal. 😀
The shot of adrenaline that hit me when I read the text was unreal. I’m still shaking from the shot of adrenaline I felt when I read it. She knows I can’t get to my bank account because it’s frozen, and I have to have this legal battle to unfreeze it. Greg just had his unemployment hearing, and we’re waiting to hear about that, which could solve our problems (keep your fingers crossed), but we won’t know for probably a week or possibly more.
I did contact legal aid, and will be talking with an attorney tomorrow about my options should it come to that, but that’s only going to buy me a little bit of time.
On top of that, on the 17th (the day before the eviction), Greg has a deposition to attend for his workman’s comp case. Ya the crap hit the proverbial fan today.
So, both Greg and I are at a loss. If anyone has any ideas on how to make a lot of money in 7 days, I’m all ears. But we’ve already tried the lottery, and I don’t have any jewelry left to pawn. We don’t even have a car worth as much as we need, and we’ve asked all of our family members.
The really big problem is we have nowhere to go if we do get evicted. We’re still selling stuff on ebay (if your interested just click the link and all of our items for sale are on the left side of the screen) in hopes of reaching our goal in time, but if anyone of my readers have any ideas, I’d really like to hear them.
I honestly don’t know who evicts anyone right before Christmas, but apparently I do now. So much for putting our tree up this year.
