Lots of Friends and Company

My IT friend Chris just left.  Thank you!  We finally figured out a few more details of how to do this and got some photos on the site.  We are so lucky to have so many good people in our life helping us.

We have had a lot of company lately, first family for a week and then we hosted over 40 people from school for dinner a week ago Saturday and then friends Friday and Saturday.

Today was hopefully our last appraisal.  What happens is that the County hires an appraisal to do a market value of your home and if you don’t agree, you can get your own and they will reimburse you up to $1500.00.  I will explain more of the details as we go through the process and I get more familiar on “blogging”.

I can breathe now.  We found a home to rent.  That is a whole other story.

My plan is to write our story on the past eight years under “Background Story” and to write about what we are currently going through and feel under “Blog”.

I do not wish this upon anyone.  If you are going through Eminent Domain, I hope I can help.  We have learned a lot and continue to learn.  Again, I am so thankful for everyone who is helping us in one way or another.

One more thing, our oldest started school today and our youngest starts tomorrow.  How we have pulled everything together to make life as normal as possible for them, I dont know.


Technical Difficulties

Okay, I am having serious technical difficulties trying to figure out the administrative part of word press.  Regarding our “situation” our oldest, who is 12, just got back from camp.  He was gone four weeks.  He was so emotional when he came home he cried. He wants us to move the house.  “They” could never pay us enough for the emotions we have and are going though.  But, that isn’t covered anyway.  I would really like the people who are involved and have been involved to come over and see my home and meet my children. The offer is an invitation.

Certified Letter

We got our certified letter yesterday.  We knew it was coming, we understand that there is nothing we can do.  But, somehow, getting that letter was gut renching.  Seriously, I cannot tell you how this feels.  I really do feel like throwing up and I have a lump in my throat that I can barely talk right now.  November, we need to move by November.

November as in three months.
