Well crap

We just got two pieces of bad news and it's freaking me out big time.

It looks like the job my husband got two and a half weeks ago(the one he was supposed to start last Tuesday) fell through.

As in, no job for him. For now anyway. It turns out they are very slow right now due to the economy and weren't able to sell enough time(it' s at a tutoring center) for him to start working. The person in charge told him she was hopeful she could still sell enough for him to work the remainder of the summer but he couldn't start for a couple of weeks.

Uh.......yeah we kind of needed him to start now.

A few hours after that little bit of news we found out that the apartment we were planning on renting in the same complex we are in now was rented to someone else an hour before we went over there to sign the papers due to a "misunderstanding" (read: screw up) with the leasing office. Now we have to rent an upstairs apartment instead of a downstairs one, with half the storage space as the other one.

We need a lot of storage space to store all of the baby's furniture and crap stuff, plus we are going from 950 square feet to 640 so we need to store a lot of other stuff too.

We were going to rent a storage space but we can't really afford to. The reason we are moving is to cut expenses and they are insanely expensive.

Also, we haven't lived in an upstairs apartment in 20 years. Before we had pets. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal but have I ever mentioned that I hate change?

I keep telling myself that everything will be o.k.

Everything happens for a reason.

Michelle, i'm so very sorry to hear that. It does suck and I sure will add you to our pray list!! Everybody is having such rough times and I myself just hate it. I keep telling myself as well, that things have to get better, or we will all be living with each other just to make it.

hugs from me,

Michelle my heart is breaking for you…hang in there girlie. {{HUGS}}
You guys certainly have had your fair share of “crap” for the last while.

I had to share a few of my favourite quotes with you. I hope they can, in some way, give you a little hope.

"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."
~ Unknown

"When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place."
~ Unknown

"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. "
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

I know you might think these are corny but I just had to send you them because had many low points on this journey as well and these quotes were always a good reminder to me.

I am keeping you in my thoughts. Take care!

Smiles! :o)

this blows. sorry you have to go through this right now. I'm praying a job will comethrough really soon.

I'm so sorry guys. Sending positive thoughts your way.

Vent all you want about the apartment (and anything you want). Your feelings, your blog. After all you have been through it is your right. I too would have been upset about an upstairs unit. That was not your original plan.

Since they screwed up, could they allow you to stay in your apt. until a downstairs unit is available? Worth looking into, and do go into b*tch mode if you have to. Their mistake, not yours.
