Impeccable

Oh how I love that word, especially when it's used by the mortgage company in relation to my credit history. I realized I haven't updated on my living situation. Turns out that the place I was going to take was month to month because I would have had to move out by August 31. The woman I was getting the apartment from didn't know that, and was understanding when I said I didn't want it. My plan at the moment is to continue to avail myself of my friends' generosity and stay with people until my husband and I figure out how much money he'll be giving me to buy me out of our house, and the house is transferred over to him. And then buy a place. I was initially devastated (Friday) because he had our house appraised and it's only worth what we paid for it (which, in today's market is actually doing well I realized or was told), and thought I could never afford anything, but then I realized I'll get some money, and there are things out there that I can afford - it's just a question of which compromises I want to make. So, there you go.

Life is all about compromise...don't you hate that sometimes?! I'm sure things will work out, and you heard correctly...to get what you paid with the economy the way it is---is a blessing. Lots of people who are selling houses are losing mega bucks!

I tend to like words with a double-c...like stucco...fucking love them!

I'm sure it sucks to stay with someone else, but I hope you're able to buy a decent place with the money you get so it will all be worth it.
