Blog Updates

I just realized it has been several months since I updated my blog. I used to blog fairly regularly, but I have found that most of my rants now go on Facebook & Twitter.

There have been some major upheavals in my life recently. Due to stupid circumstances, Meg & I are currently without a place to live. My lease expired and even though the landlord gave us a verbal agreement to go month to month, he was able to put us out with just a couple days notice since there was never an agreement in writing about going month to month at the end of our lease. There is a lot more to the story, but that is the gist of it.

A couple years ago, I had a roommate that always found reasons not to pay her rent. So we got way behind and we got evicted. This is the ONLY eviction on my record. Now, I am finding no one will rent to me because of that one eviction.

I am extremely frustrated. I am sleeping at Lucas' house. Meg is staying with friends and all of our belongings are in storage. The cats are locked in a room in Lucas' house. They are going stir crazy - as am I.

I have looked at lots of apartments, houses, duplexes, etc. I am sick of looking at them and then being told I can't have them. I have tried being honest and telling people up front about the eviction. I have tried hiding it. I have tried everything I can think of and still no one will rent to me.

Not sure what we are going to do now. I hate being away from Meg. And sleeping on the recliner at Lucas' can only happen for so long.

So if anyone has a house/apartment in the La Crosse are that we can rent, please let me know!
