Sweetie asked for a re-assessment of this place a couple weeks ago. The man showed up today. The former owner had paid no attention to rising assessments which was at $61,000. We paid a bit more than half that for the place.
We'll have the new figure in a week. Mentioned this at writing group today. NO ONE knew you could even request such a thing!!!
"Uninformed is dangerous," I said.
"I think that's kind of strong language," said a new participant.
"Not if you care how your money's spent." I said.
End of conversation.
And then, more news arrived. Our land contract holder is probably going to walk.
Right now I feel numb.
Life will get harder if this news comes to pass. Instead of $1107 a month we'll have $557. Back to living entirely on preps.
Spent three hours with a mentor discussing the art project. she's coordinating a brainstorming session and will act as moderator. Believe it or not, right now it's a bright spot for me.
Meanwhile, I hope more people wake up to what's ahead. Despite all this news I still feel fortunate.
Take care, Treesong
