{February 26, 2021}   652, 623, 618 Still Not Good Enough

Last year around November you may remember I checked on buying a house. They said I needed a 620 or better credit score. Well about a month ago I was going by the place where they sell new trailers and decided to stop in look around and ask all the questions.

I was surprised she said I should have no problem getting a place with my income and credit. They had some nice place. All they had on the lot were 3 bedrooms. I asked about bigger places she said 4 was about as big as you wanted to go. Because the rooms start to get small.

I came home and started looking them up and seen them with 5 bedroom 3 bathrooms living room and family room. The rooms were really good size still. I picked out 2 floor plans I liked. She told me that I should take my down payment pay cash for the land and use it as the down payment for the trailer. So I started looking at land. Then I had some questions so I went back the next weekend. This time I talked to a guy. Boy was I glad I stopped in before I bought property.

He answered my questions and showed me the plans I was looking at on the computer told me what 3 bedroom model they were on the lot. Then he said I needed to get everything done right then or very soon so they could get my order in. Because they are on back order until December!!

The women told me I could move in June if I got everything rolling in February. I can’t wait til December. He said if I Wanted to roll part or all the land into fencing I would need a 640. Needless to say I left feeling defeated.

So since my scores were over 620 I decided to call the mortgage guy. Who in November said get it over 620 you can get a house. He basically acts as if I am bothering him and says no I need a 640. I told him I just wanted to buy not build. He said I still needed 640. I didn’t have enough down. I have like $10k down. I hung up and decided I wasn’t going to deal with him. A few days later the guy at work gave me a number to someone who can get me the money and find the house. Do it all like my boss did when I bought my first house.

I called him he said since fucking covid they went up on what they want and I need a 640 for my middle score. I knew it was middle. Mine weren’t close to there. They updated and one shot to 652 the others went up but still 17 points from 640. Then something hit my credit and knocked my other score back to 580 something. Now I am waiting until Sunday when they update again to see if my 623 goes to 640 and my 652 stays. I was even looking for someone to add me as a user on their credit card. If they have had it for a while with no late payments and at around 10% usage it will bust my credit. I wouldn’t need access to the card, nothing would happen to their credit nothing. Once I close they can take me off. If my dad was here I would of had my new house for Christmas.

But with every thing happening around here and what happen Monday. I think I am going to call him I need him to just find me a house to rent. I am going to find out what happens if I get a rental then buy. If my score don’t go up then i can work on it a bit.

Rents are just so high and still going up. Why a trailer seemed good. I would have a bedroom for everyone. Girls would have a bathroom boys would and I would. We would have a family room that could be used for all kinds of things and even a 6th bedroom if we needed. Plus it would be brand new never lived in warranty on everything. I have land. I would have around $140,000 into it. I cant even get a 3 bedroom for that. It would be mine. I could have and do whatever I wanted.

I just don’t know what to do at this point. I had found about 5 or 6 house’s I wanted to look at. The one I really liked was in a really nice area. They were all 4 bedroom 2 or more bath. I made my mind up if I buy it is going to be at least a 4\2. I can’t touch a 5\2. It surprised me what a jump in price for an extra bedroom. I found a 3 bed with a finished garage. It was a two car i could put a few walls and couple doors to make 2 more bedrooms. I liked it but liked the others better. But in the last 2 days all but two of them are gone. I am thinking maybe waiting to see what comes up the next few months too and if prices drop. I don’t know what to do at this point.

{February 17, 2020}   Re:Maybe Found A Place

I went and looked at that place and it was a mess. There was a puddle of water in the floor by the sliding door, half the place needed some kind of floor put in. The walls at the floor were a mess coming apart and things all through it. There was water damage on the roof all through it. The stove and fridge looked like they came from the trash.

The other the lady is still in but he gave me the address and said I could drive by. It did not look like it was in any better shape than what I just seen.

The office said they didn’t have anything that wasn’t thousands down and thousands more over the next so many years. They want $30,000+ for these old 20 + year old places that have been redone. You can get a brand new one set up on your lot for around $49,000 i seen the other day.

I would go do that had I not tanked my credit score with my student loans a few months ago. It was up high enough I could of probably done it with little to no issues.

Back to looking for now. Jw’s friend told him about one but its in a really bad area of town. Like I told him I have to leave my kids here at night and things. Even with camera’s i don’t feel it is safe. So i can see someone coming in my house or messing around it but I am 25 miles a way. Cops here take as long to get there as it would me to get there so that is useless.

{February 14, 2020}   Maybe Found a Place

I went and talked to a guy about some trailers this morning. He said he has a 3 bed single wide opening up and maybe a 4 double soon. He said it would be between $600 and $700 a month. With lot and trailer rent. He said that I wouldn’t have to give him money to move in just pay what the park wants. That is about $1200. He told me I had to show about $1800 to move in. I was like that is no problem at all. I can show that and then some. I work two jobs and get this and that. I told him the $1200 wouldn’t be a problem at all either. he seem to think that showing that much income and putting that much down upfront was a big deal. I said I pay $875 a month and my rent is going up in a month. Then I have to pay all my other bills. I said now I could pay almost everything for that if I got one of these and only work one job.

I called the guy at the park this evening and talked to him. I know him well father of the year and Rc worked for him. He knows all that happen how they both walked away. He likes me as a person in genereal i guess you would say. It isn’t like we are buddy buddy talk all the time or anything. He just knows what i been through with them and knows im busting my ass to take care of the kids. That i work im not a druggie or cause problems drama. That I will pay. So i know he will approve me if i find something. I can pass all the checks they do anyway.

I just hope they are decent places and I can get one of them. He says the smaller one is nicer out of the two he thought. But he had not been in the smaller one in a while. At this point if it isn’t 50 years old and decent shape i am going to take one of them. I am going to ask him what the park has but i do not think they have anything in the price range i am looking for.

I went over there today but they were not open. He said they open at 930 to come at 10. I told him I had to be at work at 10 but my guys would be in town so as soon as I got someone in to cover me I would come up. He said that was fine.

The only problem is they do not take dogs over 25lbs. Both ours are about 2x that. I am going to have to sneak them in and put up fence.

{October 14, 2019}   Picking up My Truck

I guess I have to bite the bullet and go pick up my truck in the morning. I haven’t heard from the guy in almost a month. I have been trying to get someone to go with me but of course no one can or will. I have avoided it for far to long. One of the owners is going to be in at my day job doing some work I told him today I am going to be late that I had to go pick it up and see what to do from there. I am in one of those weird moods where I don’t not care but that I just don’t want to deal with it and I’m okay with not dealing with it and it just hanging out there. Even though I know it is most likely just getting worse. I care but not enough to do anything about it. Even though I told them I am going to be late tomorrow I am going to have to force myself to go over there.

You know some things you can do without or pay to get done. But there are somethings you can’t just pay someone to do. I know that I know you can’t but I don’t know I thought I could figure out some way to take care of this but I can’t.

Sitting here writing this and thinking about it I don’t know if it is the situation that I am in that bothers me more or the fact that here I sit again alone to handle it all on top of everything else I already take care of alone.

{October 3, 2019}   Time to Make Plans & Take A Leap

I haven’t written a lot lately I have just been in a weird state of mind I guess you could call it. You ever been in one of those states where something just seems off or not right? Restless I have been feeling really restless lately that is the word I’m looking for.

I was worried about finding a 2nd job and then learning the job and keeping it. Getting everyone use to the changes and being there with them when I am off. I feel like I settled in and moved right to I’m missing my babies, I love my jobs but this isn’t working we need a change all in a meter of minutes. Because I look ahead and see no change in the future because everything is just going to go up and up and pay is staying the same. I was thinking even if I ended up at my night job full time for the money I am making now it isn’t going to last because it won’t be long before it isn’t enough and I still won’t be home with the kids at night it would be 2 or 3 pm until 12 like it is now and every other Saturday 4 hours.

I have had the conversation me and J had last in my head. When she called and told me she moved and has a place with property and at a decent price. Her saying how happy she is and how glad she is they made the move how much better life is and that they are living and having a life  not just existing like they did here.

I have been wanting to go see her and check it out. Been thinking about wanting to move and having the money and things. I have decided to start checking into the USDA loans and looking at property and houses. I have decided to start making plans and working on moving. I am going to apply for the loan, look up properties I would like to check out and I am going to check into building a house. I would rather build than buy but kind of decided that wasn’t going to happen. But since I have been thinking about doing all this I figured what the hell why half do it, if I can do it I may as well build what I want vs. buying one.

So I have been looking at tracks of land. It’s up in the air if I can get as much as I want but I think I can get maybe half of that. If I buy in the right area I could probably buy more over the years. but even with half I should still have enough for what I want to do. I still have to get an agent and talk to them see how much a can get a loan for, if I want to do owner finance or get the loan or another mortgage. Mostly see what options are out there the best route to go and then decide from there. I am trying to see where I want to be so I can go check the area out.

I have shot myself in the foot I dropped my credit score over 170 points in the last month. I messed up with my school loans and they hit my credit the other day. I could of cried. I went from a few points away from a 600 to under 500. I figured it out last night called and fixed it so they don’t hit again. So that will start showing good again. But I am sure it will take a while to get it back up there where it should be or needs to be. But I have a little bit so I hope they will work with me or someone will.

Worse case I will just rent or buy something with a trailer on it and live in it for a little bit then have a house built or sell and move somewhere else and have one built or have one built and rent that out. That is a bridge to cross if we come to that not worried about it right now.

I have also been looking at jobs in the areas too. I want to start applying for jobs in the area we are looking at about a month before we are ready to move. That way I can hopefully go with a job. But if I can get something as cheap as my friend I can just about pay my bills with what I will have coming in. I can stay with my friend for a month or two if I need to. If I end up being able to build I will probably have that started and done before we go or maybe see if I can get a camper or something and put in her yard for a few months and just pay her. It will help her and save me money. She has room we could stay inside but I want us to have somewhere we can go give them a break and us not be right on top of each other all the time if it is going to be a few months or put it on our property if we are having something built. Would just rather the kids be by them if I am working until we in a house or something more than a camper.

But like I said things are still in the be gaining stages and pretty much just thoughts right now. I am just starting to put thoughts into motion to see what becomes of them. Other than that I have just been busier than normal at both jobs lately. I am going to try and be around more this coming week.

{November 11, 2018}   Life Changes

I am having a lot of very conflicting feelings about a lot of things right now in life, with everything going on. I am feeling very restless with this new job and the new year approaching. With the new year coming up fast it brings with it decisions to be made. The biggest one being moving or renewing my lease. That brings up the question of if we move are we moving away or just to a different house in the area? If we aren’t going to move away do we really want to put effort into just moving to a different house? Is it worth moving to another house if we are not going to leave the area? What are the pros and cons of moving to a different house if we stay. Why are we going to stay and not move away? What are the pros and cons for that?

As much as I want to move away I feel that life is finally coming together and somewhat settling down for us for once. I have this new job and even though it isn’t enough to cover everything I have my other job and it is what it is for now. Most are working two jobs or have a roommate or something to get by it is what life is for most people right now and I am happy with both jobs I have right now if this is the way it has to be. I feel that maybe this is what I have been waiting for in order to get things together and be able to move on the terms I want to move on. Having money to go, being able to save money to go on and all that. That this is my time to get everything and everyone paid off, my truck gone through and the things big and small fixed on it or to just sell and get something else. To research and visit some places and check them out not go blind. These are all things I wanted to do but haven’t been able to do because I haven’t had the job or jobs to do it.

Then comes the fact that okay if we stay my lease is up do I stay in this house or do I try to find something different if I stay here? Pros for this house are it is under $1000 a month, it is 4 bedroom, it has a big yard, it is 3 doors down from the little kids school, I can have the dogs, it isn’t a horrible area, I am only 5 miles from one job and 10 from the other. Cons are the rent is going to go up at least $25 to $50 maybe more but I hope not. I will still be under $1000 but not to much under and could be at $1000 if they raise it more. They fix things but not everything since this new person has taken over. The yard is not fenced in at all so I have to have a pin for the dogs and they don’t have much room to get out since they have to be in it. The guy across the street that has been seen messing around my house and been in trouble. I am ready for a change.

I have found some houses that are 3 bedroom that are nicer and under a $1000 or right at it. But the kids would have to change schools and they wouldn’t be so close to walk. Them being able to walk is a big one so that the older kids can get them to and from school so I can work. I will be further from both jobs. As for rent I will be paying about the same in rent as I will if I stay where I am and rent goes up, maybe a little more but not much. I feel that if I am going to be working my ass off and paying almost the same then I should get us a nicer place and maybe have more room and I would not move if the yard was not fenced in. So the dogs would be able to get out like they should and the kids could go out even if I wasn’t home. I don’t like them going out now when I am not there because of people that walk and drive around there and the fact that they are always running off the road into to peoples yards into their cars, fences and everything else. The little ones are just that little and don’t always think or will run after the dog or a ball or something if it went out into the street. I don’t want the dogs getting away when I am not there.

At the same time I feel like would it really be worth it? Even if it was nicer, fenced in and close to schools and met all we wanted it to or close to it. Is the hassle of packing moving and all that really worth it? If this works why not just stay and keep plugging along. I just feel it is time to move on from here one way or another be it move off or just move to another house in the area. I have felt this for a while, that we are not supposed to stay here anymore. That we need to get out as soon as we can. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s like this chapter is done whatever it is or was and it is time to start a new one and it wasn’t meant to be here. I have even thought about trying to buy something here if I stay to get my payments down lower and to get into something else. Then if or when I decide to move sell it or rent it out. I would give my sister first option at moving in it if she wanted to with her family. If not then I would consider renting it out if I could find a good renter that wanted to sign a lease for a few years. I let BFF rent it if she wanted to and my sister didn’t. Other than that I wouldn’t probably rent to anyone I knew. I would have someone local that would keep and eye on the place go over check it out do a walk through every so often and things like that. Just to make sure it isn’t being messed up. Because I know when people know or think the owners are not in town they feel they can get away with more than if they are in town.

I just need to decide because I need to figure out and let them know something at my house if I plan to move and I need to start getting ready and start looking for places or checking with agents to try and find something. If I am really looking to buy I need to start that process now because anyone that has done that knows it can take months. I think maybe I will talk to an agent and see if there is a chance at buying or if that is something I should just forget right now. Then decide from there.

I don’t want to move away either because I just started this new job and love it and they love me and it is what I have been looking for and I hate to in a few months go oh sorry I’m leaving. Leave them stuck looking to hire someone new again and train them and things.

I don’t know I just feel that at this point in life if they keep me and I keep my other job and things that this is where I am supposed to be and this is what I been trying to get so that I can get everything in order to move away like I wanted to. I just have to really feel the time is right and not like I am just jumping and going with little to no resources and things. I feel like that I have not hit that point yet. This is going to give me the time to do that. Think I am going to go look at houses for sale and rent see what is out there.

{October 11, 2018}   To Sell or Not To Sell

I have been checking out trucks from one end of the state to the other, one side to the other and everything in between. I can not find anything under like $6000. If I do they are not in good shape.

I found one for $4280 what an odd price, but anyway it was a few miles from my house so I went to look at it. Me and oldest went, and checked it out. We pulled up there it sat we looked at it in it around it. It was nice for the price. No one ever came out to help us so we walked inside. There was an old guy and younger guy at a desk together. I ask him about it and the old guy started right away. Telling me it was his sons truck, how great it was, all the places he had been and how it wasn’t 4wd but it still hauled a boat like it was nothing. I heard boat and I almost left but I didn’t, but I should of. I had not gotten under to look for rust or anything like that yet but had decided I wanted to hear it run, so we went in then he said that. We took the key he said feel free to test drive it, so we did.

Thank god we were on back streets but they are still pretty busy and a lot of big trucks around. I went to stop and the break peddle sunk to the floor all the way and we were still going zoom down the street a few blocks. I stepped down it moved a tiny bit more but not much. By now i am standing on it and it feels like i am going to push it thorough the floorboard. But we stopped. But when we did there was a metal ripping away from metal sound. Not even a grinding like it needs breaks and the metal is grinding on the rotors. This was like metal ripping from metal. We easied it back to the old man’s lot and parked it. Oh and the check engine light was on and it had a miss like maybe a coil pak or something.

We walked back inside, I gave him his key back and ask him why the check engine light was on and what was the miss? He had no idea what I was talking about. Yeah right, wanted to know what I meant. Then I said and it has no breaks. What yes it does good ones I just checked it out a few days ago thats my sons truck or was I know its in top shape and breaks are good. I said look it has none, when I touch the peddle it slams to the floor in about half a second and I am still saling down the road. If I stand on it and almost push it through the truck it finally stops. But then it sounds like metal ripping away from metal not even like grinding like the rotors would sound. He got mad but was trying not to lose his cool you could tell. The younger guy sitting across the desk from him looked like he could not believe I just called him out on all this went into detail what it sounded like and didn’t sound like and that I knew what it all was. He look at the floor and me and look like he was trying not to laugh at the old guy getting called out by a women. Old guy said come back in a few days I am going to have it looked at there was nothing wrong with it a couple days ago. I laughed said bye.

We got outside oldest said he seem like he got mad. I said yeah because he seen women easy target money maker. When a women came back told him all the problems he did not like it. His easy target wasn’t so easy now she knows her stuff. I said you notice he said come back in a few days he have it looked at? I said he don’t want me to come back and he isn’t going to have it looked at. If he did and was and there were truely no problems and it ran so good he been all over about how sorry he was we were out there with no breaks and things and saying he was going to get it looked at right away. He would of wanted to take my number and let me know as soon as they figured out the problem and fixed it in hopes I would come back and buy it.

I knew something was up it says in his add it is worth over $6000 but selling for $4280 what a great deal just don’t need it anymore. If you know it is worth that much more and your a lot then why would you not try to get at least that for it then have room to haggle when people come but still make some money. Needles to say we won’t be going back. Other than that they are all a lot.

I am going to turn my application in then message the guy who wants mine tell him after looking I can’t find privet owner under $6000 and dealer most are more. See what he says.

If I could find a decent one for around $3000 to $3500 and I could get the ranger for $500 to $900, I would say give me $5000 call it even. The guy has had the ranger for about 2 weeks. If he still has it I bet he would take $500 for it. I have a feeling it must have something wrong with it or someone would jump on it for that price. But maybe because we are going into holidays people just aren’t buying. And right now things are up there in price. Most the time this time of the year things are cheap because people aren’t buying because of holidays. But at $900 I would think someone would jump on it that is looking and need something. I don’t know.

I am going to also ask him if he has anything for me to do for work tomorrow so I can make some money to pay my phone bill and car insurance.


{October 10, 2018}   Truck For Sale

He finally showed up to the diner right at 9 like he had said. I did not know it was him at first a big gold pick-up pulled up next to me facing the other way. He got out and walked around I got out and walked around to the other side of the truck. I was going to open doors and things for him to check it out. Then he ask what I was doing today if I was in a hurry to get to work? I toldnhim no I didn’t have to work until 2 I was free until then. He ask if I had someone with me. I told him no. The he ask if I would join him for breakfast. I said sure, I wanted to talk to him about work and things anyway.

We walked inside boy if looks could kill. There was an elderly couple sitting out front they had been watching me since I parked and then didn’t get out. Then he pulled up got out we talked and then went inside together. Felt like I had daggers sticking through me. Made me kind of mad but I didn’t say anything he goes there they know him and I would like to use this to make a little extra money here and there.

We sat down and they brought us drinks and we ordered. Wasn’t but a few minutes he was on the subject of Starfish and what was up with him and what was between us and what had or had anything been. I said nope we are just friends I tried to help him let him rent that room and things told him what happen. I said I never told him he had to leave even then I just said I can’t have this at my house you said x,y,z you can’t be doing this we need to sit down and talk. I said he disappear for days came back and left.

He said I don’t know about Starfish he just Starfish. I said yep what I say. I said he left I didn’t hear from him for month or two then out of the blue middle of the night I get message he needs to talk and we will for days week or more then I don’t hear from him again for weeks a month then I get a message again. I said Bff said she thinks I’m the only one who hasn’t turned my back on him even with what happen that I am that one consistent person he can turn to. He said again there is nothing between yall haven’t been? I said no I scare him and laughed. He said what, why, how? I said because I have my stuff together, I have a place a car and things like that. He knows I won’t and don’t put up with crap. He said I keep telling him he needs to at least have his own place and car and things. I said don’t get me wrong if I didn’t have kids and I was single I would live with someone be a roommate. I said I struggle and its all I can do to keep rent paid and toss a little money at bills here and there when I can. So I can see staying with someone or being roommates if your single. For him I think being at his moms is good because there really aren’t that many decent people around. I didn’t say that part to him but I do.

He ask me if I was still working for Bff’s husband and how close I was to him. I said I’m not. He said you worked there a while didn’t you? I said yes but I haven’t for a while. I said me and his wife are best friends but I don’t see him much. He wanted to know about their truck it is up to go on the repo list and things. I said I am not surprised. We talked a little. He said just don’t say anything I am trying to figure out how to handle it. I was told it was in the shop. I said I know it was too but she had to go out of town last night so he thinks it is out of town for now.

When we were talking about the truck and things, I said I wouldn’t think twice about getting in it going anywhere with my kids. He said that was going to be next question. He said would you go to GA in it? I said I was going to like last week. I said I was going to go to NC no problem. He said to visite or move? I said move he ask why I didn’t. I told him I was about to be homeless if I had to start over I may as well do it somewhere else cheaper with family. He said where is your husband or what? Where you ever married? I said yes he is about 5 miles away but don’t see his kids or pay a dime for them. I said if it gets paid or bought I do it all. I said my little ones dad seen her one time. He said thats not right. I said nope but its life.

Something was said about where I lived. He said so you must live close to here. I said you know where you stopped me the other day? He said yeah. I said I live right at the end of that street. He said where what house? I said go to the end the two across on the corner I live in the one here across from the spanish guy who has the trailer of yard stuff. He said oh I know where that is. How did I not know that was your truck all this time. I go by there all the time I have friends that live right on this street my son knows people. They are on the street that goes down the side of my house.

He paid for breakfasts and we walked outside he was taking pictures of the truck and things. i open it up showed him inside and things. He walked around the back was taking pictures of the side. He said I can not believe you deliver pizza’s in this big thing. I was kind of behind and beside him. I said I do what I have to do to make the money and get the bills paid. He cocked his head toward me and said no no don’t say that. I said its true or something at same time he said something as he was walking away. I laughed, I said not like that! Legally I do whatever I have to that is legal to make sire the bills are paid. He laughed. He said I know but you got be careful what you say or how you say things to people. I said yeah I guess.

I open the hood and things showed him we talked about the motor and things. He said something about jobs. He said his friend was quiting his job at the little store the other guy he thought was leaving. I said really. He said I will talk to him you go see him. I said okay. Then he said what are you doing now? I said nothing, he said why don’t you follow me up there I am headed there now we can talk to them. So I followed him to the store we went in and I talk to the guy he said he give my name and number to the boss. He said he worked 6am to 2pm. 6 days a week. I told him I could do that it would work out great for me. He said he would let his boss know. It is on the books and everything so I will get paid at least $8.25 hope more and over time. Oldest would have to get kids to school but I would be here to pick them up, here all after noon for homework and things, here for dinner and bed time. Even if I work Saturday if I am off by 2pm we have the rest of the day. A lot of times we don’t go out before lunch.

We left there he was asking again about bff’s truck if I was going by the shop. If I could stop in there without it seeming funny. I told him not it would seem odd and how they had taken it from there she had to go out of town. He said oh thats right. He said I think I am going to call her chat see if she can help us. I said she will. She dont want to be caught out in it and them take it and she is stuck. He said no and i don’t want to do that. I have to talk to her now get her in the loop and what to expect. She knows how her husband is and that it is what it is.

He said he was going to pick up the car he been telling me about he would get a hold of me in about 30 minutes. I figured it be longer. It was around an ho u r he wanted to know if I had a number for him. We talked he said he have to research it some. I told him that was fine let me know.

When we were eating he said he had a ranger at the lot. I remember back when Starfish saying he had one. Maybe a different one but don’t know. But I thought about it text him ask him if he still had it or had? He didn’t answer for a while then called me said he had but it sold. He said it was still there but being ship overseas it should of already been gone. I said oh well okay. Told him I was going to come look at it and crunch numbers. He said you can come look at if you want. I said now what good would that do me if I can’t buy it? I am looking for something to buy not just look at. He said well true but if you want to come by see it you can. I said okay. He said you have to go to work soon don’t you? I said I just pulled in figured I would get an extra hour or so if I can. He said oh okay i be in touch soon and we can talk about some work too.

He keeps calling me if I just text ask a question he won’t just answer he calls me. Then just hangs there. It’s akward to get off the phone. It isn’t like he is my bff or even someone I know well to chit chat with. Just like when I ask about him having a truck. He could of just said no sold it. In a text. Instead he calls then goes into all the details and says I can still stop and look at it. Then just nothing like he trying think of something to say. Then starts asking me shouldn’t I be going to work soon and things. It was like pulling teeth trying to get off the phone. 2 second text would of taken care of it.

I haven’t come up with a number yet they are hard to find a decent one at a good price. The ones I am finding are up there in price right now. So I do not know if this is going to work. But that just means mine is worth more if those are going for more. My head still feels like it is going to explode, I have had horrible headache since yesterday.  I am going to try and rest an hour or two before I start running for the day.

{October 9, 2018}   This Might Be It

Everyone cross your fingers and hope this works out and in my favore. I am sitting up the street from my house at the diner waiting for the guy who wants my truck to meet me and tell me something.

I am not going to take no low ball offer he told me $7000 a year ago and I have a lot of new parts and tires on it since then. He should up it but I would still take the $7000.

I just hope he can give it to me in the next day or so and I can figure out where to go from there. I can pay the lights and water and get me another truck.

He should be lulling in any minute. Hope he has some kind of decent work for me as well. Better get off here wait for him.


{October 9, 2018}   Your’re Starfish’s Friend

Saturday I was coming in from the store and I passed this trailer down the road and three guys had just come out. They started waving like crazy at me and motioning me to turn around and come back. I had to drop something at the house so I did that and went back out to go to the store. By this point I am figuring they have the car stuck and want pulled out. They were down behind the cars on the back of the lot when I went by and nothing was stuck and they didn’t try to stop me. I ran to the little store around the corner and headed back home. I got close again this guy come running to the road and out in it just about to get me to stop. I did and pulled over there. The guy said your, your um Starfish’s friend you wanted to sell your truck, what happen? See you got it going again. As he said this I reliased who he was. He was the guy from the car lot. I said I did but he said you didn’t get a hold of him. He said i ask him when and he said you was always working.

We talked a little and he gave me his card and said he may have some work for me as well. He said give him a call this week. He had to go finish looking at those properties.

I am going to message him this morning try to go talk to him before work. I found a little Ranger I would like to have if he really wants it. I found another truck like mine that seems to be in decent shape. Not one with all I want but decent priice still a nice truck. I am interested in what work he may have as well. Its not a lot I know but if I get in there maybe I can pick up something more or maybe some of the repos he needs done.

Here it is 4am and I am awake when I should be sleeping. Was woken up by something can’t sleep now. Least I got some decent sleep tonight.
