ARRGH!!! What did you say? Huh, didn't hear you!!!
Did you say that dreaded, bad awful - put a pout on my face that my mother would say "it'll last forever" ...
Ugh. Due to my lovely other siblings who pressured the other person who owned my house besides me - (enter, Mom), we spent the last few years just updating and keeping on top of things - the double we owned. And then for some reason - the freaking ball was dropped mid Summer (thank you again Siblings, grrrr) and without really checking the market for other houses/neighborhoods out there - the house was put on the market - at a higher $$ (ahh, someone listened to me ... personally I didn't want to sell it for a couple more years) - and, dam it - someone bought it in three days.
Evidently the doubles around me are crud (we were owner occupied for over 20 years) - and a guy wanted it to put a mother and mother in law. Nice. And he have us a nice $$ amt so we would get out in a month.
Problem. No where to go. Now we discover - nothing on the mkt we really want (spent a couple of months of weekends in stupid searches), and the taxes are going up around us like wildfire. Ick.
So hold off looking more till Spring.
But until then. What an awful month of September!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 24 ish years of stuff - and having a full size attic (you could play basketball in there!) full of stuff (mostly pack rat Mom's) - and still finding there was stuff there from ex-husband's too - ---- awful, icky - hate moving, hate packing - loved throwing stuff out though and giving to Salvation Army! I deleted a lot of needless stuff. This was the ONLY good thing to come of this fiasco. Mom's crap however - ugh.
Anyway - my, our stuff - is now in storage on the 5th floor of a warehouse in a part of the city that I wouldn't EVER ride my bike down the street at night in. ugh. And we're all living wherever ---- and just think.
We have to move the stuff again --- we have a storage unit of 10'X30' and it's packed full right to the door and we also have another unit as well (smaller).
I .... really ... just can't wait ....
