Yep, I am going to talk about rocks.

I had a client come in last week for a review and she told me she went to 4020 after we were forced to move, that she went to our house and took some rocks for her garden.

She said she was a little afraid.  Worried about what the neighbors would think and if anyone saw her.  I assured her that our neighbors didn’t care.

She told me that she was saving the rocks for me.  That once we were settled in our next home, she would give me the rocks for my garden.  I told her I didn’t want the rocks, they were hers and I am glad she has a little piece of 4020.  I just asked her to send me a photo of her garden.

Good karma.  I only know her through work and she use to be insured with my Father.  We also connected that we use to go to the same church.  Small world.

Rocks.  Our connection is rocks from 4020 Shady Oak Road.

Amazing, isn’t it?






Still Renting

We are still renting a home, it has been now over a year and a half.  We first signed a lease for a year and then did a six month extension.  We are now on a month to month lease.

The legal process is new to us.  It is slow as was our condemnation.  It took years for our home to actually be condemened and now it has taking more time for the legal process.

After we didn’t accept the counties offer for our property, we had no choice but to hire an attorney.  If you do not accept the offer of the entity that is condemming your property, you have no choice. That was made very clear by the Judge who presided over the condemnation hearing.

Our attorney then works with an appraisal company to do an appraisal and “comparable study” of our property.  This report has taken over a year and is costing us a lot of money. If I told you how much this is costing, you would understand why no one fights this and everyone settles.  How unfair.

We have a trial “block” date, which apparently is what the County does.  Our case will go to trial between August 31st and September 15th.

That puts us over two years of renting. A lot of money renting…

What else can I say right now?
