My eldest child has found someone to roommate up with. I am very happy and relieved. To be clear, I would not allow my sweet little drama-queen baby to freeze or starve to death EVER, it's just complicated and we don't have a bedroom to spare at the moment etc etc.
Anyway, I found out today that our former tenants who left us with such a mess and we lost so much money over and had to work so hard to get ready for a new tenant because of... they have already been evicted from their new place. I am shocked. I mean, yes, they made a mess of the place and they kind of screwed us over in certain ways but they were quiet and generally good-natured. It was nice having them downstairs, there was no fighting or anything, they strictly followed the "no smoking in the house or yard" rule for which I wish them tons of happiness. Seriously, so many people would cheat on that one. Our old tenant took in his dad about 2 days before they suddenly moved out, they needed more room, they got a bigger place. The dad reportedly is just a nightmare tenant and we are very, very lucky that our tenants decided to bail on us the way they did. The new place is already trashed... it's hard to imagine how, I saw pics of the place and it looked wonderful when they moved in. Wow. We dodged a bullet!
Now if only I could make some money, that would be awesome. We could get back on track and straighten everything out.
