Lesson Learned

We made the decision to get one month's rent and give our renters 30 days to get out of the house.  I'm nervous about how they will react.  I'm nervous about the condition of the house once they are out and they fact that we will have to go in and clean up after someone else...ick.  Then we are going to put our house on the market and pray for a miracle.  Pray that the house sells quickly and for what we need it to sell for in order to cover what we owe as well as all the fees associated with selling a house.  There was no security deposit given because our property manager dropped the ball.  When they moved in, we were going to allow them to pay $600 one month and $600 the next in order to cover the security deposit.  They never paid and evidently she didn't remind them.  So we will be out $3600 and she will be out another $1200.  It really makes me sick to think about but I'm just praying that it all works out one way or another.  I have learned several lessons from this situation.  Lessons that I guess maybe I wouldn't have learned had we not gone through all of this?  Unfortunately it's yet another time that I've been burned and I'm hoping I'm not going to end up not being able to trust anyone that I meet.  The stress that will be off of me if we are able to sell will be HUGE! GINOURMOUS even!  This has been a thorn in my side for over a year and a half when we initially made the decision to rent it out.  We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into.  We also didn't take enough time to think about it and pray about it.  I think that God allows us to go through situations to learn lessons and to make better decisions in the future.  Lesson learned for sure.

On another topic....I'm down 52lbs.  I can't believe it.  I'm still not really seeing it in myself.  I haven't been boxing or doing any activity (other than volleyball and playing in the pool a couple days) in 2 weeks!  I've just been so stressed.  I know that's a horrible excuse since exercise helps relieve stress.  idk.  I think once we hear back about how the renters reacted to moving out, I'll be able to relax a little and not have it consume my every thought.  Another thing.  While they are very baggy, I am still wearing all my old pants.  I have tried on a smaller size a couple times but am definitely not ready to buy any smaller pants.  I find that a little discouraging.  I guess technically I can wear a smaller size if I don't mind them being tight around my stomach but I hate that so I just choose not to.  I have like 1 pair of pants that looks ok even though they are too big.  So I wear those a couple times and then wear a dress or skirt or whatnot.  I do however have a few regular XL shirts so that's encouraging.  Most of them are very baggy in the way they are made though so maybe that doesn't even count lol

Anyway.  That's where my mind is.
