Yesterday was Rusty's birthday. My baby turned 40. We kept it very low key. Rusty does not like "parties". So I made him some root beer glass candy. I had not made candy in a few year's and Rusty had been asking for it, so that is what he got for his birthday.
Rusty's mom and dad once told me the story behind Rusty. Rusty's mom and dad were both marines and they met in the chow hall at nas Memphis, fell in love and got married.
However they could not get stationed together. So Rusty's mom decided to get pregnant. Back then if a women got pregnant then they got out of the service. So, Rusty was their ticket to be together.
That dark cloud that has been hovering around us has moved. The other day I was so sick and worried, but now I am not.
We have lost our house.
When Rusty had his heart attack we blew through all of our savings and things just went down hill. We both made some bad decisions, so here we are.
The other day I wanted to hold on to this house, but now I don't. After a lot of soul searching I decided that this house is not worth fighting for.
The important thing is that we are all together, and that we are moving on. Rent is so much cheaper here, so that is what we are going to do.
We will rent a place for the next three years and then we are hoping to move out of state.
Rusty said that he would not move the girls out of state as long as they were in high school, so we are stuck here for another three years.
I am at peace with this decision.
We will tell the children that we are moving after Christmas.
Amber will be in Costa Rica while we move so she will be coming home to new place to live. No, for anyone reading this, we did not pay for that trip and that is not why we lost the house.
Today I am going to go talk to a friend that works for a property management company and see what she has. I do have a few other places to call as well.
I had so many journal alerts that I had to delete them, so I will be starting fresh today.
I have a lot of stuff to get done today, so I am going to go get busy.
