We are in danger of losing the house. We are short $2058 to stop foreclosure proceedings. I can pay the monthly payments but I have yet to figure out how to pay the back stuff. Yeah, that would be the issue. I had hoped that in the safe deposit box would be some sellable jewelry, there isn't just mom's pearls, which are going to Abigail, and my necklace, and a few other things but nothing we can sell. We did find $124 Canadian but that paid for the drilling of the safe deposit box so that brings us back to well, the beginning.
My anxiety is high, I will admit and the pain levels are high too. I expected this because of the situation I am in. I don't want to sell the house, which is the extremely very very very very very last resort because I will not only lose my home, but my livelihood, teaching as I teach at home. The house is set up to teach and where else would I be able to teach? There are no studios in the area hiring (I tried) and apartments around here are not conducive for teaching plus I don't know how I would afford an apartment on disability alone so basically, I will be homeless, literally, if I don't somehow someway come up with a plan.
So I did. I will be talking to housemates this weekend but also I took a suggestion from a friend about setting up a gofundme.com account. I don't have super high expectations but so far, someone has donated $50 so hey, that is $50 more than what I had earlier. I am thrilled. I mean, I am so thankful for this help. I sure hope we do get more because this past summer was the worst. First Calli got super duper sick, then I got sick, it was just a horrible cycle of bad things. Now that things are back to normal, we stuck with this. I didn't even know because I have been speaking to the bank this whole time and well, they led me to mistakenly believe that because I was making regular payments again, that we were fine. I was wrong. I didn't ask the right questions. I know better. I have made some changes here at home that will prevent this from ever happening again so I feel better about that. I just need to somehow, someway get the rest of the money.
I am open to suggestions.
