Iím so tired. D14 wants to live with him. WAH works a lot which means she will be with me quite a bit. I wonít have a bedroom for her so she will have to bunk with me. It will be an adventure right?
My new apartment is nice. 3 bedrooms, open and airy. Itís a huge complex off the beaten path. Itís the nicest one around. I thought Iíd get stuck at the complex with all the bad kids but I didnít. We are all happy about this. Iím further from school but closer to work.
Everyone at work is being so supportive. My boss has gone over and above trying to take care of me. Pushed me to find a place to live, gives me 2x4s when I contact WAH and lectures me about being too nice. Word is still getting around and today 2 guys tried to find me a house to rent. Iím not interested in yard work but it was cool that they thought of me. I love my job.
Send happy thoughts and prayers please. I found a 4 bedroom rental house. It's old, dated and cheap in an old neighborhood but it has 1900 square feet. With 4 bedrooms all of my kids could live with me. My only concern is when it's available. I get to do a self showing today which is a good sign. Can't go see it if someone is living there. It was listed 2 days ago. Tempted to apply because it won't last. I don't know what to do.
Ok I didnít get that house however I found another one, a better one. Until today I was too scared to rent a house. I wanted to play it safe by moving into an apartment. I think I canít make it without WAH. Thankfully I work with the most amazing people and when word got out I needed a place to live they helped me believe in myself.
Oh and it gets better (Iím crying happy tears) they are orchestrating my move. Trucks, trailers, dollies, and itís all hands on deck which is great because I donít want WAH in my house. That thought makes my skin crawl.
I feel guilty. He wants to pay me 20% which is child support only. He finally answered my email. My attorney is starting out negotiating for 50%. He does not know this yet. I originally asked for 33%. He got angry so I took it back. We then discussed 23% but now heís dropping it again.
I still want to nice him back. I canít back out on my attorney again. I already believe she thinks Iím an idiot.
More fun. Rental companies are strict. The application is brutal and I donít qualify for anything. The people that pursued me were individual renters. I was picky before I figured this out so I turned down both of them. After a big dose of reality I crawled back to one of them and weíve been chatting all evening via text. He didnít say yes but didnít say no either. My credit score appeals to him.
I feel bad because D17 got attached to this other house. I did too however it was more than what I wanted to spend. Just $100 but every dollar counts. This one is the same price as the apartment. Itís quiet, private, close to school and itís only negative is that Iím used to being a princess. Lol.
Iím proud of myself for doing all this on my own. Iíve got a long way to go but Iím making progress.
