Thanks, Aurora, Monkiray, Karen, Jamie and Shuvy.
I'm sorry. I didn't mean to worry anyone unduly, but yes things have gotten even worse lately. I can't go into too many details in the online environment but here is a brief gist of what's been happening:
*Family friend offered to buy house and rent back to me so I could keep me and my girls stable here.
*Bank denied me for shortsale w/friend because I signed mortgage modification and haven't been delinquent on my loan in 3-4 months. I took modification so that I wouldn't have to worry about losing home when trying to sell it.
*My lawyer convinced bank to take another look at my case.
*Then family friend had family member with financial emergency. Pulled out of deal a few days ago.
*House is now on active status to be shown again to sellers. Showings will start next Sunday. I now need to totally reclean house (i.e. purging closets, cellar,) and cleaning, polishing, waxing.....
*Do lots of yard maintenance.
**If buyer comes along in time, sale could still be denied by banks or a particular lienholder on my house.
**Need to save funds to move out now.
**No job on horizon.
.....Life pretty much bites right now. Monkiray, I also am sick with asthma type symptoms and cannot speak more than a few words at a time without going into a coughing fit. When I'm feeling human again, I'll give you a call. Hopefully, this weekend.
..Look I know we all have our own issues and problems here. But for 2 years now I've just been looking for "one" single break somewhere. It's not like I'm sitting on my behind and waiting for the world to come to me. And I'm not trying to milk any system. I work hard at my measly temp job that I'm grateful to have. But nothing I do seems to make a difference in a positive sense.
I'm sorry to be ranting here. I'm just not a happy camper at the moment.
