Update 5.14.06


It's been a while since I've posted... but I just got some good news over the weekend- I SOLD MY HOUSE! I got the offer the night before I was supposed to be on the road to California-- and it set our trip back a couple of days.. but that's ok! Its not exactly what I wanted, but for owning the house for only 8 months, living in it for 3 weeks and never having to pay one mortgage note since I rented it right away after the storm- I did pretty well. Initially, they tried to low ball my price and demand that I give them all the furniture inside, plus all the plants to be included in the low ball price. We straightened that out pretty quickly.

Everytime I go to the house, it does make me sad that I am selling it. I would love to keep it but with not knowing what is going to happen with next hurricane season, I can't risk the chance of another storm coming and then having to deal with insurance and everything. I will be all the way out west and I just can't be here to take care of it. So, I decided to sell and thinking it would take about 6 more months (a.k.a.-after hurricane season), I thought that once my renter's lease was up at the end of June, I would have to re-list it now on Craig's list, etc... to have it rented. So now I am scrambling to make sure that the furniture is all sold or given away.

Shay and I are supposed to be on the road driving West on Monday AM. Right now, I am in Pensacola one last night visiting my mom for Mother's Day. After this, we will head back to New Orleans, pack the car tonight (all my stuff is together in the living room) and then start driving early in the AM- or 10. You know, whatever works. I'll keep you posted.

Yeah its a little sad, but just think about what you may find in the Hollywood Hills! Ha. Its good too that you were able to go home for Mother's Day. And I hope you gave them hell for lowballing you and demanding the furniture and plants- wtf? At any rate congrats on selling the house.

Congratulations on the house!! That's awesome! First dibs on the furniture if you don't get a good offer on it though! I'm planning on taking an "extended" vaca in Pcola probably end of June...

I'm glad too that you were able to spend Mother's Day in Pcola. I figured Rose would be there, but I worried that Mom would be missing everyone, so the more kids there the better!

Safe travels to you and Shay and keep us "blogged"! I really wish I could have been making the drive with you guys! Love you!

PS... Thank you so much for the gift certificate to Essentials! You're the best!!
