Things have finally fallen into place for us!
Wow, I can't believe that our move is almost here!

Nothing has seemed to go right so far with the house. I know having the move scheduled with the moving company has gone well so far, thankfully. But I have to short sale my house and I feel like nothing has really been done with it even though we have a selling contract with our realtor and we've been working with another company that has seemed to put a lien on our house that we didn't know about. It's preventing us from just up and selling the house and I'm seeing a lawyer about this whole issue soon and hoping to get something solved about it. I'd offer relocating the collateral as well and they won't even do that. They don't even take the item of collateral if we miss payments. They take you straight to court so they can get their money. It's a very sketchy company and I hate them.

But otherwise, things have been going smoothly. My son is now 3, my 24th birthday is coming up soon before the move, we have all our money in order for the move, and my doggies are taken care of with shots and being microchipped. We even have our new home waiting for us once we get down to Yuma, AZ. The house was suppose to be a 2 bedroom 1 and 1/2 bath, but I guess someone else needed it sooner than we did and they put us in a 3 bedroom 2 and 1/2 bathroom place instead. So not complaining about it since it gives us more room than the other one would have. I even get a pantry in the new place to help with food space. And the master bedroom gets a stand up shower in the bathroom and I thought that was awesome!

So now it's just finishing things up quickly with this house and getting things in place before we move. I'm just hoping that the time I have left is just enough for all of that.

Things have been really stressful lately with a move that has been forced on us. My husband got orders in February that we'll be making a cross country move right before the start of summer. I'm all for it for the most part. Just not the struggles of being financially unstable because we own a house and have tried just about all our options on what to do and none seem to be the best or would still put us off in bad financial stress. Yes, we've tried talking about selling, renting, even if a friend could take on the payments and claim the house. Nothing was feasible without costing us more money. We're getting screwed a bit and can't do much about it. 

On top of the matters, my husband and I were led into a bad transaction with a water treatment equipment for our house. They say they don't have a lien on our house, but we can't sell the house at all. That would be considered a lien because only a lien could do that. So I've been left with the task of dealing with all of that which required me to be in and out of base legal offices and some other places to try and get help with it. They can't help us with trying to switch the loan to lift the lien, so now it led to filing complaints, which have all been done now. None of this is easy when you have a toddler either, so do believe I've been feeling drained with all of this. 

And because I have our toddler, I can't finish the stuff needed to still be done since they don't want children during these classes we need to take. Daycare isn't optional since we can't get him into his doctor to fill out physical papers the daycare needs. And no, we don't really have family nearby that would watch him for however long it would take me alone to do it all, and especially at 7:30 AM for that fact. This is all now waiting on the hubby to come back from training exercises in a different state away from us. 

We still have things to finish with decided on what we can do with the house as well. We don't know half of what they're asking for either or how to even obtain it. I guess we just still have a lot to do before moving in less than 2 months now. At least packing has started (even though it didn't need to be done) and the moving company will finish the rest for us. I just hope that company doesn't steal anything or break something in the process of moving us. I'd hate to have to file more complaints and what not. But stress is what I hate about all if this.

But on a brighter note, our toddler son will be turning 3 before the move and I'm hoping to have most my family down to see him. I do know a lot of them won't be able to make it and I wish we had time and money to go see them before this move, but we don't. It's not like we can just travel between two states and have one party between them or something. It's just easier for us to have it in our home and have everyone come to us. I know circumstances to some people on why they can't come, but some have no excuses and I'll know their true intentions with them showing up or not. As of now, I'm trying to take things day by day now and not over stressing myself.

So I just realized that it has been over a year since my last update. Still in the house we bought, which by the way, now as an owner and it's over a year since we've owned it, I hate it. I want to fix it up, repaint walls, replace carpet, and redo the two bathrooms and then sell it. I want to go back to renting. I do like the idea of having our own house, but it sucks when something goes wrong and you have to pay for it. I don't like expensive costs like that.

Overall though, I did graduate in December of 2013, and I just landed a job and start in August. 8 months to find a job -_-. But it's a military town so jobs are hard to get here. It's at a digestive diseases clinic and I have some personal and family history along those lines, so it should be a pretty confident spot for me. Definitely will be making more money too than my other job that I had as a sales associate at Ross. I miss that job though even if I just quit. My co-workers were awesome people.

Also, my son is 2 now, and definitely growing up quick for me. He thought it was funny today to actually lock me out of the house from the front door. I was ticked, told him he was wrong, and then sent him to bed since it was time to do so anyway. Funny little bugger. And my husband is gone right now on a training mission with the USS America. They're going around South America and stopping at different ports and showing off the Osprey and 53 while they stop. He doesn't know that I'm planning his welcome home/birthday/anniversary gift while he's gone. I have most of it saved up already and just need like another $300. Of course with this gift, he'll still get an anniversary card and a cookie cake for his birthday, but that's all he's getting from me. This gift I'm doing is costing overall about $740 in total and letting him travel more while I take care of the house and our son. So he'll realize how much I try to please him and how much he pisses me off by not making anything special for me. Plus I'm a bit upset with him recently because he's lied to me and he's been touching the money in our account when he shouldn't. But we'll talk about that later.

Anyway, nothing else has really happened since then. I've basically high-lighted all the major events, so we're all up to date now. Chow yall! :)

I'm a Marine wife and a mother of a little boy named Garrett. I do live in the United States and spend most my time taking care of my two special guys in my life. I use to draw a lot when I was younger and now it's just here and there. I sew here and there as well, but I'm not that great at it. I probably do better with singing and photography than my other hobbies.
