We've been living with my Husbands family and helping them out since my husbands car accident about 6 months ago. Our Christmas Present to ourselves was to get out of here and be on our own. Even if it meant not getting a gift from each other this year. We wanted to do everything we could to get out of here. So,What do I do??? I started looking in the Newspaper and even on LSN which is a similar website to Craigslist. Where people post things they have for Sale,RENT,Free or Trade. I really couldn't find anything in the paper and finally found something on LSN. There was no picture of the house but,there was a good description. The rent was more than I had wanted but,I thought if we worked hard we'd manage. We went to go look at this House this past Wednesday. I really liked the house. The only problem I had with the house was that It only had a walk in shower and having a little girl we really needed a tub. But,still I thought we would still get around that too. It being the end of the month,me not getting many hours at work lately we still wanted the house but,asked if she'd work with us. She seemed a little over eager to help us out. I know we really jumped the gun about getting a place and we really didn't have much money but,I thought if they'd work with us we'd could get things situated and I thought it would eventually all work out for everyone. Well,My brother in law lives up the road from her and I had heard bad things about our future landlord. But,I was being trustworthy and trying to give her a chance. I thought I would paint the living room cause she had it painted a funky purple color and that had to go! She agreeed and even told us she'd pay for the paint. We agreed that we'd prorate the rent and even pay us to paint and for all the supplies. She agreed to even keep the electric,water & Gas on in her name for 60 days which is 2 months or till we got it switched over whichever came first. I don't know but,I felt leary of that she may do something shady. Well,Thursday was my day off but,I thought I'd rest till I returned back to work the next day. She calls at 8am wondering if I'm coming over there? I hadn't planned on it but,I went ahead and told her I'd come over for awhile to paint so I could get it done before Saturday so we could get moved in. I went ahead and got most of the painting done. She kept calling me the whole time I was painting and yapping away. She kept telling me all her problems and even told me about a shed building she had sold for $800 to a man in Knoxville. She later told me he had Stopped Payment on the Check he had written her and she'd wrote checks on it and that her checking account was all messed up. Which,I am sorry isn't my problem. She kept texting and calling us in the early morning hours on our cell phones. She kept texting us saying call me its urgent. I knew something was going on but not sure what? I texted her back and she called within 15-20 mins and this was at 6am she wakes everyone in the house up and even my 2 year old which ticks me off. She said because of her situation she had to have more money. I said we'll I will have to wait and see. She said its Friday I know you and your husband both work and you both probably get paid. I told her I work in Home Health and didn't get paid but 2x's a month but,Marty got paid but,I'd have to talk to him. He said NO we aren't given her anymore money I don't care what's going on with her. Well,I called her back and said no we can't give you anymore money that we just want our money back and we'd return the key and go our separate ways. She said that would be okay. I tried calling her later that day to make arrangements and she wasn't woman enough to answer my phone calls but,she could text me and I think it was because of her thinking that we take her to court or something. Well,I got everything saved she's ever sent me too. We came down our road and was sitting in front of the school and she pulls out in front of us and I had my husband to follow her so we could talk to her. She wouldn't stop so we ended up falling us to her house and she gets out of her branco saying she has no time for us that her son is missing and he's a grown man....whatever! I think he can take care of hisself. It was just something to through us off. So,We went on our merry way. She wasn't woman enough to talk to us face to face or even over the phone but,she could text me? I've been so furious!!! She kept telling me that I breeched the contract?? How? It was her that kept asking for more money? It wasn't in the contract and if anything we where paid up till the 1st Of December. She kept texting me to not go on the property or she'd have me arrested? I called the cops and he said I had paid till the end of the month and I had the right to live there till I was legally evicted. He said it could take up to 90 days to have me thrown out since I actually have a child. We didn't even move not one piece of furniture in this house. I just feel like we where ripped off and I'm furious. Its things like this that makes me not want to trust anyone in this world. I could had used that money to get my child a good christmas for this year but,someone took advantage of me. I went over there last night and she had all the door knobs taken off and I couldn't even get in the house. I was even more furiated! I talked to a neighbor over there and apprently she's been running all sorts of scams. She will tell people all sorts of pitty stories and give her all sorts of free stuff and then turn it around and sell it for a triple price which I think is wrong. There are actual ppl that actually need stuff like that and she lies to get things and flip it? Apparently I am not the first she's scammed. I put an ad up on LSN and told ppl to watch who they deal with on there. I got so many emails from ppl saying that she scammed them and that she took them for money too!! I wished I could warn everyone about her but,I know there will still be ppl that will fall prey to her and I just hope they don't get scammed out of money like I did. so if your online trading or selling things or whatever even if its a rent house please really check out the person your dealing with because they can really take you for your money. If anyone goes on LSN please stay away from anyone with the name of coltenbaby or angel baby or angellynn. I also found out she has all kids or Pitts and Rotti dogs and has even let them loose on kids? what kind of person is that. I really want to take her to court but,is it worth it? should I walk away and count my losses
Well,we finally found us a place!! I'm so excited. We've been living with my husband's Family since his car accident cuz,on my paycheck alone we just didn't have enough $$ aka Moolah to afford to even rent a place. My husband's uncle gave us some land that he said we could build on but,We've hit every sort of road block imaginable. So,Hubby finally decided to move into a place out to ourselves. I've been pretty much begging and pleading for him to move out of his families house 4eva it seems!! We found out my 16 Year old Step-Daughter "might" be pregnant we don't know for sure but,its a huge possiblity. She hasn't said anything to her mother yet. I told her to just wait and we will come to that if we have to. I'm gonna take her to the Doctor when she comes in for Thanksgiving. She lives about 3 hours away. Its been around 7 months since she's even seen her dad. I told my husband that her mom lets her do whatever she wants like she is an adult. What's done is done we can't unchange it. She has no stability in her life. She gets mad at one parent for trying to correct her and then goes lives with the other and it just repeats itself. She doesn't have no stabilty like that!!! If she is preggers I just hope she finishes school She now a Junior in School and she has about a Year and a half left to go. It would have to be hard to be a teen-aged mom and trying to finish school. Motherhood is hard enough let alone having to be one as a teenager. I think my husband is thinking that if her mom blows her top that way she will have a place to come to if she needs one. So Hopefully we'll get moved into this new place within the next month or so. I'm just so EXCITED!!!! We have most of our things packed up so we won't have to worry about the packaging part. We just have our dressers and our beds her at martys families house. I finally got placed at another house at work. I'm only working 24 hours a week :( not good!! I need some more work. I need at least 40 hours a week if we are gonna be living out on our own. I will be working Mondays,Wednesdays,Fridays & Saturdays.
I called the Electric and Water to see how much we'd have to pay to get them turned on and surprisingly it wasn't too bad! So hopefully My husband can Pay the 1st months rent and deposit and I can get the Electric & Water paid so we can get moved in. WE have alot of things that we'll have to buy that we threw away when we packed our stuff up in storage. My husband doesn't want me to take this computer to the new place. He said at the end of January when we get our Taxes he was gonna buy me a new computer. So,I decided I would trade with his aunt. She said I could buy her living room set. Love Seat,Sofa,recliner. I believe its an ashley furniture its not the greatest but,I thought I would repay them since I really don't have the cash that I'd give them this computer since I'm buying me a brand new computer. I'm thinking of a New apple laptop or maybe the new HP smarttouch. We'll just have to see when that time comes. The house we are moving into is a 3 Bedroom & 3 Bath. I might just make one of the rooms into a workout room/ computer room. I guess it depends on my Step-Daughters Situation.
On the workout front...there hasn't been any in almost 2 weeks I guess. I've been so sick. I think I had the flu or something then I think it turned into strep Throat. My mouth has never been so sore. I'm gonna try and get back into workout though I promise. ohh yeah I have to tell you what leah done this morning. I got up outta bed to use the bathroom. Leah was waking up and thought it would be awhile before she'd actually get outta bed. One thing about living with family I have Marty's Aunt to help me with Leah. I figured it would be awhile before she'd actually get outta bed. I was using the bathroom and I heard Leah Yelling "Di...Di....Diiiii,DIIIII" it was so cute. Diane which is Marty's Aunt was up waiting for a kid to get here that she babysits. Well,she came into our room and leah was sitting on the side of the bed. Nothing was wrong she just didn't want to get outta bed all on her own. Talk about lazy. I was calling her Lazy bones this morning. So cute though...
I've been shopping on and off all day...I'm so excited!! I've got alot of things thats coming in the mail. Here is a list of some things I got
Sephora 1. Hope in a Jar 2. Purity made simple 3. My free gift which is a makeup box with lots of samples
New scrubs for work so now I have enough to do me all week I got some christmas prints and some new iguana med scrubs.
I also ordered some make-up from coastal scents from EDM ( Everyday Minerals) which is mineral make-up. I order 3 foundations 3 blushes,3 concealers,2 brushes- a flat top and the long handled kabuki. I'm really excited to try this mineral make-up. I've wanted to try mineral makeup for a long time plus its so much better on your skin.

I started sitting with a new patient at work yesterday. The other lady I cared for was put in the hospitial last week. I already miss her. I dislike the new patient. Everything I do isn't right nor good enough! Ugh!! She said I can't keep anyone here. Umm... I wonder why??? I really hope Mrs. Nell gets to come back home cause I hate it here. I guess I just took to my old patient better.
I'm a 32 year old wife to Marty of 7 years, we have two beautiful children. Leah Josephine who is 5, and Devin Elisha who will be 1 in November. I'm taking college courses, hopefully one day I'd like to obtain my law degree. I love reading in my spare time in addition to messing around with one of my Apple Gadgets be it my iMac, iPad or iPod Touch..ummmm yes I'm an Apple Geek!
