Time to change!

Yesterday was a shocking and interesting day.
I went to pick up the mail and found a note from my landlord saying that he needs the house back and we have 60 days to move out.

My first reaction was a mix between panic, shock and anger and I still feel that way I must admit.
I cried my eyes out thinking how in the hell we are supposed to do that, but I guess there are worse things in the world right??

I've been unhappy with the place I live for a while and many times temped to dump it and find better, but never had the monetary disposition to do it.

Now it doesn't matter, money or not, we'll have to find another place to live until the next landlord decide we have too move at a very bad time.
This is how the world roll, the people with money have the power. The people that have to work their butts off to pay all the bills in time, are nothing in the eyes of the world, just few anonymous faces to fuck over at the first opportunity.

We are going to be all right, I try to repeat it to myself and deep inside I know it, but the next 2 months will be a living hell.....oh wait! We have been leaving in hell for the last 5 years, never mind then.

Tomorrow we'll start the hunt for a new place that will not cost an arm and a leg: we already scoured the newspaper ads and seems that we'll have to settle for something much smaller for the same price we are currently renting, which in my opinion sucks. I love the space, you know?

I will have to go and ask about my business license, since I work from home, changing the address will be like changing job: chances are that I will have to start all the paperwork all over and aside for time (that really I don't have to waste), I really don't see myself spending another $180 to keep up with a business that gives me a profit of $20/month. Doesn't make any sense. So, I'm still unsure what's going to happen there. I will probably have to close down for a while, probably for the rest of the year? We'll see.

I apologize for this post being so gloomy, I plan from tomorrow to only look at the bright side, but for today just let me worry about it.

What a bummer -- and you're right about the haves and the have nots, but that seems to be the way the world rolls.

But...tomorrow's a new day and a chance to put one foot in front of the other and get on with what has to be done. You watch, there will be a beautiful day, a rainbow, some magical something to make it all seem better!!!

Good luck! I hope we will all be reading your blog and looking at your sweet shops for a long, long time!

That sucks and go ahead and complain, it is a-ok. They say things happen for a reason and I'm betting that you will find a better place. Good luck with your search and keep us posted in your adventures. As for your business, I hope you can keep it open. If you aren't making a big profit perhaps you can downgrade to a hobby and upgrade it to a business when things pick up. Sending positive vibes your way.

Stay strong! Things happen for a reason. Since you have been unhappy in your current residence, maybe you will end up in a place you love with great neighbors! Blogging is a great way to vent your frustrations. I wish you luck through this difficult time. ~Val

I'm so sorry to hear, but in 6 months I will be in the same boat, Rent here in upstate NY is HORRIBLE they think everyone is made out of money, My husband and I are both on social security. We have rented this place for 23yrs. Its getting sad to have to move,especially downsizing all my crafts.
Look up and I still have mt health, and I can move on, who knows you might find a great place
made just for you
Best of Luck

Aw Lu, I'm SO far behind on my emails and blog rounds >.<

I can't believe this!! I'm in shock and I'm angry FOR you and your family because that's not fair. At least he gave you 60 days though right?

Still, I wish there was something I could do...IF there is anything I can do, please let me know!

I wish you nothing but the best in your hunt and may the universe smile down on you guys and give you a break!
