Debt Update - 6/7/19

June 7th, 2019 at 10:28 am

We got through wedding weekend for my SIL and it was a good fun time. I did have a little breakdown because when we initially went bridesmaids dress shopping I was pregnant with the twins and I just kept thinking about how they should have been at the wedding in their cute little outfits. And of course the first thing my hair stylist asked me was if I had kids. I've had a rough few weeks again, but have found a few things that help me not feel so awful. I am making sure to take my meds at the same time everyday, I have started doing P90X or some other workout everyday, and also changed my eating habits. I also set a daily timer on my phone of 30 mins max for FB. These little changes have really helped improve my attitude and made me feel more positive. I don't want to feel like crap everyday so am trying to find what works for me.


Both big mortgage payments will come out on Monday so the next update should be really nice.

A very rainy week, softball and rental updates

May 24th, 2019 at 07:56 pm

It's been very rainy, cold and gloomy here. It rained almost everyday this week and the entire day today. I'm afraid of what this mosquito season will bring!

I had softball on Tuesday and that is going well. I play on 2 different teams, and I was worried that I would be a bit rusty after missing most of last season with my pregnancy but it's been good. I'm feeling strong while hitting and smart on defense.

We have a lot going on with rentals. We will be doing a cement patio towards the end of June on Rental #1.

Rental #2 currently has a pastor and his family in it, they moved here for a year long internship. The internship will end in a few months, and we received an email from the head pastor that they have another pastor moving up for the next internship and they would like to just transition to the next family. YES!! That would be wonderful if that works out and we don't even have to look for a new renter.


The 4 unit we are the property managers for has been a headache. One of the units was a BF/GF who had a child together. They have lived there for a few years. Some months ago the GF got a new BF....so there was tension obviously and no one actually informed us that she had moved out, or requested to modify the lease (one of the neighbors let us know about the move out). Now the BF has up and moved to Virginia (we are in the Midwest) without telling us and without paying May rent. The GF, even though she wasn't living there anymore has been cleaning things out as a lot of her kids stuff was still there. Going over tomorrow to see what kind of a mess we have to deal with.

The other 3 units there are also moving out soon as they were all full of out of state workers and their jobs are ending soon, so we may go from a full apartment building to an empty building in one month.
