Michael and I decided not to buy the mobile home. It kinda sucks, but it didn't make sense to be buying a $120,000 (including furniture, septic tank, well, ect.) at 14% interest with $1,200 payments every month. If we paid every payment as scheduled, we would have paid over $300,000 for it! We weren't even 100% approved for the loan either. Our 10 acres had to be appraised for at least $9,500 an acre. And it was doubtful that was going to happen...

Another reason it was a bad idea to buy this house at this time: Michael and I only had  (yes that says "had" more about that later though) on car. That means I would have to bum rides to and from work every day until we saved enough to buy a second car. Well, you can imagine how hard it would be to save any money when you are making $1,200 house payments along with your car payment, electricity, insurance and other bills.

So we broke the deal. But it wasn't even final so it wasn't really a deal in the first place. It certainly wasn't a deal!

I know we have spent a lot of money on permits, renaming the road, clearing a few acres and all that hassle, but those are things that had to have been done eventually. So it wasn't a waste of money. It was more like an investment!

Well.. back to that "had thing". Mike and I had one car. Well now we have 2! We took part of the refunded down payment for the house and made a downpayment on another (almost new) car!

Its so nice! It's a Red 2005 Honda S2000 with only 4500 miles on it! Did I mention convertible?

Not a picture of our actual car, but that is what we bought.

And I get to drive around the Blue 2002 Honda Accord yay!

Again, not the actual car, but you get the idea.

But anyway we have been searching for somewhere to move to. We finally found a place, but it won't be available until Monday. OUr lease is up Friday... not a problem, we are going to stay with my mommy this weekend.

But we need help moving (see above pics of our vehicles). We need to move our furniture into storage by midnight Friday. And back out of storage sometime the next week. (Pref. Monday.)

This is the bulletin I posted begging for help:
Date: Dec 12, 2006 4:09 PM
Subject Truck Needed Thursday and/or Friday
Body: I need help moving Thursday and Friday. So if anyone has a truck and is free Thursday or Friday, give me a call. 295.2184 or 295.2185 (mikes#)

Big SUVs are good too.

I have a queen sized bedroom set, a bunch of boxes of clothes and kitchen stuff, a 42" LCD TV and a tv stand, and a recliner needing to be moved by midnight Friday.

Thursday I am off, but Mike is working, so I can move little stuff like the kitchen items, clothing, ect.

Friday I am working but Mike is off (and the lease is up so we HAVE to be out!). So that is when we will need to move .

Heck if you have a truck and are available before 3pm tomorrow I could use the help.

I will pay gas money, and provide some kind of cheap dinner (pizza and beer?) after we move in to the apartment. Which reminds me I will need help moving again sometime next week! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

plllleeeeeease help me!!

So yeah.. call me if ya can help!

My managers never have anything nice to say to me. Every day I work, Mr. Patel asks me what time I got out of bed. Then he asks me if I just woke up. Seriously, do I look that bad?

Today after he asked me if I just woke up, he told me that he didnt think my new haircut looked good. I (finally) spoke up for myself and told him that it didn't matter if they liked my hair or not, because I am the one wearing it, and I DO like it. Sure, it has a little extra body (poofy) today, but it doesn't look bad at all!!!

They are really starting to piss me off!

Last night was pretty good. After I left the house of course. Mike and I went to Ruby Tuesday's and ate until our guts were about to burst. It was good. We were going to have a Chocolate Tall Cake, but we were too full so we decided on the Short Cake instead.

Then we went to Lauren's. I don't think she really realizes how much I appreciate her letting me stay over there. I know I am getting on her nerves. She has been so helpful to me, letting me escape the hell house. But I hope she does realize how much I love her and James and how much I appreciate them letting me stay in their theater1.

Lauren!! Check this out.

1 They turned Meredith's old room into a small movie theater. James bought black cloth and put it over the walls to black them out. There are two futon couches lined up. The back one is elevated by bricks as to make stadium seating. He even bought some rope lights to be like the floor lights in the theater. The big TV is in there, along with my DVD player/home theater system, Mike's X-box, a VCR, and another DVD player. It is awesome.

I am going to the crazy people place tomorrow. Aiken Barnwell Mental Health Building. Hopefully they will just tell me that I don't need to talk to a therapist and send me home. I really hate this.


I am not going because I have to work. I thought I could go to the place between 11:15 and 1. Actually I have to be there at 10:45 and fill out paper work, then wait, then go see the shrink. I have class every day until 11, so I really don't want to go. I hate missing class.

Dad just informed me that if I don't go to this place by next Thursday then I will have a month to move out. And he wonders why he and I don't get along. He tries to bully me into doing things. It is really a control issue. If I move out, I am not coming back to this hell house. I would rather live on the street then to live with him any longer.

I hate doing these quick updates on Monday morning.

Mike got into a fight Friday with Bryan. Mike found Lauren's stolen computer in the closet. It went downhill from there. I have been taking care of his eye. Apparently Bryan went to bitch-slap Mike, and caught him with his nasty ass fingernail. Sliced his eyelid open. He is okay tho.

Sat and Sunday were pretty much lazy days. Sitting around Lauren's taking up space. Mike cooked dinner Saturday. Steak and potatoes.

School now. Yay!

Well I get to go see a therapist next week. I am not to sure if I want to do that or not. The only real thing bothering me is my father-mike situation. That's not much to talk about.

It is depressing me. If I have more than a few minutes of "down" time when I am not doing anything, I cry. I just want to lay in bed and never get up. I need my own place. This sucks. I hate feeling this way all the time.

Remember, I use to be happy. I use to enjoy life. Now I just want to get away, run away. Leave everything behind.
