That's fantastic! I'm so glad something great has happened to you - maybe this year you're in for a run of GOOD luck!

Today is just turning into such an awesome day!

I left work at 6:30 AM...and two robins flew past me. So Spring is here!

It's going to be almost 75 here today, ditto above!

And yes, the money is MINE....the house sold for 44k more than I owed on it!

It's so weird...I haven't had anything good happen to me in so long, I don't know how to act or react. I'm used to the opposite sort of thing, where I get bills for enormous amounts of money!

Congratulations, Sue! I hope this is the start of a run of luck for you two!

COngrats!! YAY! I wish I would get a check for 44k. But not from selling my house because I LOVE my house! Glad things are finally turning out for you! Have a little fun with a little of the money! Celebrate tonight!

That's great, Sue. I'm glad you've been able to confirm that it's not an error. After your run of bad luck, I didn't want to think about this turning out to be some bizarre mistake!
post #37 of 109
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! That is a miracle - and you really deserve it too.

CONGRATS!

I am SOOO happy for you! Prayers that you will be able to purchase a home with this down payment!

Thank you for sharing this good news with us! Enjoy your little splurge with some of the money! I know if things have been tight for a while, there are a few things that will be great to be able to buy or do!

44K? Wow! That kind of fortune is just unheard of unless it's an urban legend forwarded in emails.

My mood is dampened a little tonight; the landlord is at it again. I went to leave for work, and he had posted a note on our door giving us 3 days to "get rid of" all but 7 cats, or to leave. He also indicated he is severing our lease.

I will be calling the lawyer in the AM to find out what to do now.

At least I have the wherewithal to afford a place now.

Don't let him get to you! I hope your lawyer has some good advice!

Well, it's in Golden, in the Heritage Dells neighborhood. But I kind of doubt the enormous number of cats thing here in the city. It would be cool if you could get a rural property...let me think on that a bit...

Man, that is AMAZING. You must feel incredible. What a wonderful surprise!!

The check was supposed to clear tomorrow AM. I just checked my balance online...and the check was refused. So it wasn't real, after all.

I am so crushed.

I am going to call the bank and the sheriff's office in the AM to find out what the he*l is going on. Why would they send me a check and then refuse to honor it? It's like on top of the pain of losing my house, they decided to twist the knife a little bit more. I feel like I was having a good dream and woke back up to the lousy reality of my life. :pity party:
post #51 of 109
Keep your chin up Sue it may just be they didn't fill the check out properly.

Or we all know what banks are like,its a lot of money ,if they can keep it longer without clearing it they will.

***hugs***
I am praying for you.
post #53 of 109
Oh MAN that sucks. I can't believe it. Don't give up just yet, it could very well be something beauracratic that'll get cleared up.
All my fingers crossed for you.

That's what Tybalt thinks it is. I'm too upset to think clearly about it, and on top it that, I need to go into work tonight. I don't know how I am going to get through.
post #55 of 109
I'm really hoping that it's just a clerical error or something like that. Definitely follow up on that check with your bank here and the bank back in PA. BTW, if they knowingly sent a bad check across state lines, it is a Federal Offense, so definitely call the police on it too once you find out what is going on with that check.

Wow. Thanks for that info, Heidi!! That's the first glimmer of hope I've allowed myself.

Maybe I can sue them for 44k?
post #57 of 109

Good luck!
post #58 of 109
Wow, that's great!!! You can send some my way!!!
post #59 of 109
Awwwwwwwwwww, Sue! That is so rotten! I hope it does turn out to be a clerical error or something that can get sorted out without a lot of fuss and in your favour.
post #60 of 109
Oh Sue, I'm so sorry about this happening to you. Lets hope that its an error and you get the $$. Lots of good money vibes coming your way!
