Trials and Tribulations (Pt 1)

Well it has been awhile since I have posted anything new about our struggle. First the family had to split up and Kathy and I went down to Cape Coral, Fl to stay a few days with her brother. That was very stressful. He has a dog that was named Evil when he adopted it, but he changed it to Evie. Evil is a fitting name. Everytime we go down there with our dogs, the is a major fight between Evie and one of mine. I almost always get bit by Evie trying to break it up. So, it was a very stressfull 2 weeks dowh there. Nikki stayed with different people in Orlando as she had classes and work.

We thought we found an affordable place to live and we could get our family back together. Boy, were we wrong! It was a slum! Full of mold, bugs, the floors were soft and ready to collapse. We paid the rent there, but had to move to a hotel because of the condition of the crap shack. I will post photos soon

Now, we have gotten approved for a nice home, but because of the loss on the trailer and having to stay at a hotel, we are about $600.00 short to get this house. We have the security and part of the rent, but the owner won’t hold it without all the money upfront. We are so disappointed.

There is no agency in Orange County, Florida that will help with the first months rent, electric deposits or security deposits. Other counties in Florida do, but not here. And my wife and I are disabled too! But the charities don’t care, if the news were making a story out of us, then they would help us out, otherwise, they say tough luck!¬† Our life was looking up, but then a damn Albatross¬† crapped on us!
