More Updates on A Few Topics

November 10th, 2018 at 09:12 am

Hello SA types! It's been so long since I posted, a whole lot has gone on.

I did end up having to evict my tenant. Even though he was notified of the date and time that the sheriff's deputies would be arriving to lock him out, he was still there when they arrived. If it were me, I would have been already gone and spared myself the humiliation. The eviction service representative I had hired reported that the tenant informed the deputies that he would be staying until the end of the month (lock-out date was 9/19). Surprisingly, they sided with the court order and locked him out anyway.

Since then, I have been working towards getting the house ready to sell. SB has been mostly staying in the house while I go only on weekends. The last few odd jobs are being finished up right now. Then we will do one last cleaning, stage it as best we can, and list it.

So as you might guess, my expenses have been greater than my income these past 5 months. I have gone through most of my cash savings and taken on Heloc debt. Most of the expenses are now behind me, but I will continue to have a cash flow problem until the house is sold (and by that, I mean close of escrow).

Work is going well. I am off probation now and received my first and last step increase. (I started at step 4; there are only 5 steps). My salary is just over 53k and will only rise with cost of living increases, unless I am able to be hired into a different job classification.

My daughter has been thinking she wants to go back to college. She applied for a scholarship to Colorado Technical University last spring. A few weeks ago, she learned she had been selected! It is a full ride excluding housing for a 4 year degree. She intends to study accounting and thinks she wants to go into banking. She is very excited and I could not be more pleased.

I am writing this from a timeshare condo in Reno. I am here for a girls' weekend with 5 other women. While waiting for a turn in the shower, I thought I would take advantage of the reliable internet and throw up a quick post. Smile
