The joys of renting....

I am just popping in briefly (we are actually picking up internet from a random wireless in the neighborhood on my husband's laptop) to let you know why my Etsy stores are in vacation mode and I won't be posting online anywhere. Because we are not "settled" here in Florida, we have been renting since got here. The community we are in has an HOA and the cable and internet come through them and are included in our rent. Well, we have run into landlord trouble AGAIN. We had to hastily leave our last house because it was in foreclosure. Our cable and internet were shut off without any warning to us today because apparently, our landlord is behind on the HOA payments. That is not a good sign. I have left messages at 2 numbers for her, and so far, I have not heard back. So, we may have a very long weekend (or longer) without service. I will miss chatting with you all. If by chance my husband gets his laptop fixed (it's battery is no longer working and has to be plugged in) I can open my stores back up and stop in at a coffee shop to check sales and emails. This is such a mess. I apologize if you were planning on purchasing anything. I hope to be up and running soon. However, for all I know, we may have to move again. Ugh. Chat with you later...Lori

Gosh that is terrible Lori, hope things work out! Perhaps moving out of Florida would help! Just know I have sent good thoughts and prayers your way that things work out as they need to.

She left me a message a while ago saying she didn't know why they said that, as the payments are taken out of her checking automatically every quarter. She's calling their office in the morning. Hope this gets worked out. For now, we are getting wireless on Rob's laptop from some random neighbor. Thanks!

I hope everything gets resolved soon.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. Everything got fixed this morning and I don't think we're living in a home on the brink of foreclosure. I am just not trusting of landlords after our last fiasco. Hope you all have a lovely New Years!
