I wanted to let everyone know That I may not be able to be as active as I wanted to right now. Long story short, the roommates staying with my wife and I decided to try and move out while we weren't home last week. They tried to abandon us in our apartment with no way to make rent. Needless to say if they had been able to pull that off, I'd be homeless in 5 weeks. Thankfully we got them to stay but I'm not holding my breath. On top of that I had to be taken to the hospital last week. I ended up passing out at work and hitting my head pretty hard. AND the engine in my car crapped out and is Not fixable unless I completely replace the engine which costs $3000+. That's just for me to buy the engine and install it myself. To say I'm ok would be a lie. I have never been this stressed out in my life.
I will also be moving soon. Our lease ends in less than 5 months so I need to use this time to job hunt and apartment hunt as we will be moving out of California for good to Portland, Oregon or a surrounding area. We've been living paycheck to paycheck for the last 5 years and we've had enough. I have been living off 1 meal a day for the last year and its taking a toll on my health so this needs to happen or we won't survive in this state once our lease is up.
We've got everything planned out for this move to go as smooth as possible but it's going to be tight as hell. If 1 thing doesn't line up, we're screwed to say the least. So keep your fingers crossed and keep us in your prayers.
