This is something I don't want to post but need to post. Pretty much every time I've had health troubles my hubby and I have had financial troubles. I have been out of work since September due to a number of health issues. Part of the reason is also due to the fact that the owner and employees of the apartment complex refused/refuses to do anything about the roaches in our building and other maintenance stuff. After living in the same apartment for 4 years roaches suddenly appeared. A young guy with his child who lived at the complex for only a few months brought the roaches into our building. Another tenant saw roaches crawling all over garbage bags as the guy cleaned up before leaving his apartment. Another tenant noticed So we've spent a decent amount on roach traps, bags for the food, dishes, and silverware and other items to try and get rid of the roaches. Plus the staff made an error on our lease renewal which we were penalized for, which put us in arrears at least $1000.
There was a court date at the beginning of May. The office staff told us that if we came up with $2000 then they wouldn't evict us. It took us a little while to come up with that kind of cash. But ever since we did, my husband has been trying to contact the office staff and the phone reroutes his call, they won't return our messages, and just plain refuse to talk to us. Recently, we got an eviction notice so we have until Monday to be out of our apartment.
I don't know what we are going to do. We have two cats that are a part of our family. They have been my saving grace especially after having my hysterectomy, with the loss of not being able to have children. I have posted a hat tip jar donation button on the sidebar of the blog. If there is any advice or donations you are able to give that would most appreciated.
I want to send a big thank you to Opus at American Perspective for her most generous donation.
Update 2:30 May 30: We actually got a phone call from the office person. She said if we can come up with an additional $1000 by June 15 we can stay.
