Been staying at RC’s this week with the kids. Take them to school and go back once I pick them up. It has been fun the kids are having fun. I found out last night that my house was foreclosed on the 10th of this month. I am always the last to know about anything. They stopped sending me any info telling me what was going on with it. The bank still hasn’t sent me anything telling me or telling me we need to move. It was just seen on the clerk of courts website that they had done it. Kind of surprised I knew it was going to happen just didn’t think it was going to happen so fast. Everyone had told me oh it takes a year to 2 years for them to do it. It only took about 3 months for them to do mine. I figured we had at least 6 months or so to get things together and find a new place. I’m really not worried about it I’m thinking it was probably a good thing it has happened and that it happen when it did. The kids last day of school was today so I don’t have to worry about that. They are supposed to go spend half their summer with their dad. That will give me time to get a job and get some money saved up and find us a place. They want almost $300 a week for daycare and I just don’t have it. Most jobs are only part time and I will make about $189 a week so I couldn’t work. I am thinking about finding two full time jobs if I can that way I can bank my money why they are gone and have some to pay daycare when they get back. Plus I will show a job so I can get us a place to stay. RC wants me to come stay with him for a few months it will be cheaper for both of us and we both can save some money. Then get a big place together. I really wanted to wait a year or so before we did that but I don’t know. I am going to put my stuff in storage this weekend and go up there and stay. He knows I am not sure if I want to get a place for just me and the kids or a place together yet. We will cross that bridge when we get there. But for now it will help us both out.
The kids dad can’t tell me when he is going to take them for the summer yet because he can’t find daycare. He keeps talking like he wants me to keep them why he works and I told him no. He don’t care I haven’t had daycare all this time and not able to work. I have to find something or make it work when I have them then he needs too. If I am going to have them all day then it is kind of pointless for him to just pick them up put them to bed and bring them back. I may as well just keep them for the whole summer because I still can’t work. At least with staying with RC for a few months he will be there with the kids at night so I can work a few hours in the evening or work over night. We just live so far apart and the kids are spread across 3 cities with school he really couldn’t do it before.
It is going to be a busy week and weekend next week. I have to pack everything I want in my house and move it all next weekend when the kids go to their dads for the weekend. I am not taking a lot with me. Mostly just personal stuff. I have given a way most everything else in the house or soon to be ex is going to take it. I’m just going to leave the rest set up in the house when I leave. I have never done that but it is what it is this time. Nothing has been what they told me since I bought the house. My payment was way higher at closing than what we had been told. They never tell us anything we get letters in the mail after they have done something. Just like with the foreclose they never told me we had another court date or that anything was going on. As far as I knew they would send us the stuff and let us know. I am so ready to be out of here and make a fresh new start for us. This house is just dull and depressing anymore.
It is going to be a tight fit at RC’s but hopefully we will only be there a month or so once the kids all come back. We are going to take both sets of bunk beds with us so that all the kids have their own bed to sleep in so that will help. They each are going to be able to take so much of their own stuff with them and then take some to their dads so they should do good. They will still go see him every other weekend so they won’t be there all the time even when they get back.
Excited and a little scared for what the summer holds for us. But can’t wait to see!
