Suddenly Homeless

We moved into a house owned by a slumlord.

Took slumlord to court. Slumlord in turn, took us to court.

Big mess.

Eventually, we agreed to move out at the end of January.

Then we were told the house was sold and we didn't need to move because the new owner was happy for us to stay.

So we stayed. And stayed.

And then the sheriff showed up. 

Kicked us out. Locked the door and left my husband, myself and our 2 sweet boys out on the sidewalk.

The house was sold, yes.

We have a lease with the new owner, yes.

But the slumlords? They wanted us out for the 4-5 days it will take to complete the sale.

So we're homeless.

Sleeping on couches.

Crossing our fingers and praying the sale finishes today. Or tomorrow.

Worst week of my life? Yep.
