I am the biggest believer in Murphy's Law. Almost to the point where some might call me superstitious. Which is dumb cause its really just me being proactive. If I leave 15 minutes earlier than necessary to work I hit every green light and I am way early and I have to hang out in the car and play on my phone. But when I head out late I hit every red light, i run out of gas, there is an accident on the road, the mic isn't working, or I forget my music. Its like everything that could go wrong will. If you pack and emergency kit in your car you NEVER use it. If you don't have one you find yourself stranded in the desert for 17 days drinking your own piss to survive. And for me it seriously is that bad. As soon as we wiped out our savings and extra cushion in checking to put down on the new house I just new the "shit was gonna hit the fan". I was so nervous and antsy just waiting to get run over by a bus or drown in a pool. About a week later Derek comes into my room in the middle of the night crying. He said he hit his front teeth that day playing and his mouth hurt. I turned on the light and his whole mouth was swollen. His gums were bulging with puss and he had a fever. Best part is it was the WEEKEND! meaning any medical attention he needed would cost triple. I gave him Motrin for the pain and called the dentist emergency number. He was put on antibiotics and scheduled to have surgery 4 days later. He had to have his front teeth removed. Even if we bought veneers he could get another infection and be in pain. They suggested he be sedated so his surgery wasn't painful and scary. All that means is more $$$. After all was said and done the total bill $1,000.00. No savings. And the tooth fairy had to visit. I can't wait to build back up some more savings and get over this hump. Until then Murphy's law is hot on my tail and it feels like the devil is chasing me. Pray for me. It always gets worse before it gets better.
Three years after a short sale in Arizona we are back on and ready to buy. Renting has been a real hassle but we had to pay our dues. Our budget this go around for sure wasn't as big as the first time. Thats to be expected, but a real shame cause if we could get a house here for what our Arizona home was worth it would be very VERY nice. Any way this is the new House. The seller asked for more time to move out so we are moving on Sep 1st. The best part is this time we are hiring movers and a cleaning crew. So happy and excited. I am going to love having a landscaped back yard, an office with doors, and more bathrooms. As soon as we get it I will take before and after pics. I know you are just dying to see how I decorate! Im dying to see how I will afford to decorate after we buy this house. I'll be working the corner folks call me for pricing details.
