Expensive Popcorn & Life

Most of the movie theaters in Las Vegas are located in a casino. So, if you are a Gambler, the smell of theater buttered popcorn wafts toward you until you finally decide to give in.. until;

I go to the counter and order a small, buttered popcorn. I have a $5. bill to pay and the guy repeats my order and goes “Your total is $7.90”. I thought he was joking! I sort of giggled and said, “Yeah, Right.” and he goes, “No, really. It’s $7.90”. I go, “Never Mind. I am not paying $7 dollars for Popcorn.” and I came home and made it myself.

Well, the house has been sold again for what I hope is the final time. They are going to turn in the Background Check tomorrow. I am going to believe this is going to be the final time, as I continue to pray that it is.

3rd Time?

Here we go again!

The Buyers were denied in the Background Check so once again, they are getting refunded and the house is back up for sale.

But, I have not given up. I believe if I don’t do this now, I won’t have a deposit when something comes open. I also believe God is in control of the timing and there are good reasons for these setbacks.

I have already showed the home to someone, tonight and will be relisting it, tomorrow. I am still getting calls, anyway.

The guy, tonight, tried to low-ball me and asked stupid questions about things the park will and won’t allow that are beyond my control. He also took a screenshot of the Title due to wanting to make sure there are no liens on the property even though I told him, there aren’t. I finally said, “Why don’t you go home and think about it and I will think about your offer and put it back up for sale?”.

I do not want to take another Deposit and have to refund it!

Busy Day

Since it’s my Payday (Yes, Disability is still a payment) it was busy.

Started off by paying bills, then to put the Down Payment in the bank; before going to Mattress Firm. My mattress now is fun, but, not comfortable. It bends to one side so you feel like you are going to slide off. Plus, it’s a bit hard..which might be affecting my Migraines. Anyway, Mattress Firm is having a sale and I got a Queen sized Memory Foam Tulo Mattress that is Lavender scented at like half price! Really excited, but am going to wait till I move to use it!

After that, it was lunch at KFC where I met a guy!

He has money as he owns the restaurant chain. But, I think this relationship is short lived because I would have to visit him. He has to monitor the customers and a lot of women come to see him!

After lunch was gambling and I set an amount and did pretty well sticking to it.

Cin has a bit of a problem in that every time we go and get ready to leave, she sees a different machine and goes, “I should really try this one”.; then spends more money, she really shouldn’t. While there, a Migraine started from the smoke in the casino so, I really needed to get home and take my meds.

Stopped to get my mail on the way back..(when I am with someone, I just have them stop, so I don’t have to walk.) and was shocked to find a package in the mail! My Secret Santa from Reddit is still at it and he sent the Purple Sugar Skull Bath Set I wanted!

This picture doesn’t give it credit, but, it’s amazing! Plus, I think there might be one more thing on the way. I think the guy spent like $200.00 on me!

The people who bought the house called this afternoon and are super worried about the Background Check. My manager is asking personal questions that should have nothing to do with their qualifications like, “Why are you buying a trailer when you own a house?”. Who cares? if they have the money to pay the space Rent, let them! Anyway, I understand being nervous but I am not going to panic.

I believe Gods’ got this and whatever happens will be his will. I can’t even set the timing. I just have to pray it all works out.

Solid Sleep & Faith

I seriously slept Solid last night.

What with Whackjob and family gone and selling my house; I feel like I should be stressed about finding a place. But, I truly believe Gods got this! That’s not to say I am not looking. Gonna call Cindy’s Trailer Park Manager again today and/or check into a nearby apartment. I really don’t want to go into a weekly unless I know fer sure, a condo is opening in a few.

Keep the prayers coming, please!

2nd Times The Charm.. Hopefully

Sold Again! This time to a really nice couple who offered a decent price and already handed me a decent sized Deposit. The office is closed today but they are going to contact them tomorrow regarding the Background Check and will keep in touch. They have dogs and cats. They have agreed I can stay at least until the end of the month .

I am praying something opens at the trailer park Cindy lives in, so I will at least have my own place until a condo opens. Plus, I would prefer to keep my little family together, if possible. I might still need to get a storage unit for the Washer/Dryer, Cat Tree, etc.. and will probably get a PO Box until I am settled.

Please pray All works out!

I really believe God is in this!

I am completely done with Facebook and while considering Instagram, I have to wonder Why? My life is not that important that I need to share it all over the place! Things that are important, I can text people or write about on here. Most of my friends aren’t on Facebook much, anyway.. and Instagram will be good if I get into writing, seriously..but I can’t really think of any other good reason.

Crazy Ass Buyers

The lady who is helping…more like Making the guy buy my place…is a Whack Job.

When they came over to pay the rest of the Down Payment, she kept answering for him, not letting him get a word in. I finally said, ” I haven’t heard from him at all!”. I looked at him and said, “Do you like the house?”. She kept saying, it doesn’t matter.”He needs to be on his own.”. Yet, she is the one planning to fix it up. She also stated to me later that if her boyfriend died, she can move here with this guy. Supposedly, the reason she is making this guy move is because he is causing problems between her and her boyfriend. Whatever.

What gets me is they did Nothing today so the process won’t even get started until Tuesday or Wednesday and I am really at a standstill until I know he is approved by the park. Even, if I found a place, I couldn’t jump on it! I really hope he/they? get approved so I can move on.

Oh, and when I asked what she did, she had fun touting how much she does for others and what a wonderful person, she is. Yeah, No conceit, there.

As for the guy? I kinda feel sorry for him. I really don’t think he wants to move anywhere so he drags his feet, hoping her idea will go away.

Unfortunately, as a Seller, this puts me in a really, bad, spot.

Oh well, God blessed me with Patience for a reason, and here is one time, I need to master it.

Oh, More proof she’s crazy and a control freak. Whackjob is not into animals and didn’t give the cats the time of day… despite Susy’s begging for attention.. until Susy jumped on my counter. Then, she picked her up and put her on the floor saying “Get down, Kitty”. I was like, “She’s allowed up there.” and Whackjob said, “Oh, I didn’t know.”. She is lucky I was shocked. What right did she have to touch my cat without my permission? She pretty much crossed the line by picking her up and reprimanding her.

I will be quite glad when this is over and we have all moved on.

When Cats Stress

The cats know something is up so they are stressing!

Someone pee’d on my bed! Yes, What a joyous thing to wake up to. NOT.

Needless to say, developed a Migraine from that.

The people that want the house also want to pay extra for the Washer/Dryer. At first I was like, Cool, I don’t have to move it. But this morning I am thinking “NO! What if I need another one? The size is hard to find!” I am going to see if Tra might want to store and use it for a while. She needs a Dryer.

So, that’s my morning so far.

Laundry is running, and waiting to hear from the guy about the Background Check. Plus, need to get a Purchase Agreement printed we can take it to get notarized. Then, he can proceed getting the money from his 401K.

This is kind of a pain. When I was in AZ, I sold my mobile home and the girl saw it, gave a deposit, then we went and signed off.

Praying for a Miracle of a place to come up. Really not looking forward to the small, temporary trailer option, but at least my family would stay together.

Although, if they keep acting up, I might think differently. HA!

The Escape Room

The book I read is called, ‘The Escape Room’s by Megan Goldin’

Basically, it’s about some corporate Big-Wigs getting ordered to attend a Mandatory meeting. When they arrive they are told it is a Team Building Meeting in an Escape Room on the 80th Floor. However, once the elevator starts, it doesn’t reach the 80th floor. The clues are in the elevator! Of course, there is lots more to this book. Like what happened before, is the elevator really an Escape Room and do they escape? And of course, who is behind this and why? I am not answering these questions as, you have to read it for yourself.

In real life, I got some more money dropped off for the house, but, I need to find and fill out a Purchase Agreement, apparently so the buyer can get the money from his 401K. Anyone know where to get one, other than Walmart? I don’t have a Printer.

I am mentally getting ready to look at storage places and PO boxes, as it looks like I might be going to somewhere really small until I actually find something more permanent.

Of course, God works Miracles and I am a Believer so you never know…

A Lot Doing Today

Bad English? Maybe. But, you can’t say the title isn’t catchy.

Talked to some friends, looked up some options, a temporary place might come up in a few weeks as a possibility while I wait for a Condo to open.

Someone’s Failure might mean my move Forward now that Eviction Restrictions are being lifted.

Right now, there is practically Nothing available in my price range or even out of it, for that matter.

The thought crossed my mind of refunding the Hold money and saying Screw It. But, I would never make this much on my house, otherwise, I don’t think and there’s a reason it sold .or is selling…so fast.

I really believe Gods’ Got This and I have to keep patient and trust the process.

Can you share a time when you trusted God and he came through? I would love to hear others experiences.

Crazy News

We interrupt the Sharing Saturday Post to bring you the following NewsFlash!

My house has Sold! Sight unseen.. except for pictures and for more than I asked for!

The person that is paying the Down Payment is buying it for a male friend so he can have his own place and stop living with her and her boyfriend. It’s a bit of a soap opera to be honest, but not my concern. I already have some money to Hold it and will get the rest of the Down Payment next week. Which is also when he is probably going to get park approval. They have agreed to let me stay here for 30 days to find a place.

Please pray God leads us somewhere safe and affordable, soon. I am not overly stressed because I know Gods’ got this,. But a little extra prayers from friends never hurts.

Hope you all are having a good weekend, so far!
