Why owning is sometimes better than renting ..

January 9th, 2008 at 06:18 pm

I had a not great day today.

At work one of my co-workers told me that she'd heard from another one of our co-workers that he'd read a story in the business section of the paper talking about how an development company had bought the land where my apartment complex is located. The article also talked about how the company plans to tear down the current buildings and put up new apartments/town homes/retail shops.

So I went searching to see if I could find the article for myself. I did find it. Frown

Needless to say I was feeling quite a bit upset with the idea of some development company deciding they had the right to kick me out of my home, not to mention the families in the other 399 apartments! Not to mention the fact that I am SICK of moving!

On my way to my Callanetic's class I called the apartment office and asked what was going on. The person who answered didn't deny that the land had been sold, but she did reassure me that nothing would be happening anytime soon. And that when or if it does, we'd be given notice.

My current lease is up at the end of March. I have till the end of January to say whether I'm renewing or not (60 day notice). I'm not quite sure what to do right now. I like where I am living - especially the cost factor and being right in the middle of work and church.

Arghh!!! If I lived in a house of my own the only things that could force me out would be foreclosure or Eminent Domain!

My day got just more fun after class. Not. I was backing out getting ready to head home, when all of a sudden I heard "CRUNCH!". I went back into my parking space to see what had happened.

I had apparently backed into the front end of a HUGE pickup truck. Another lady who was leaving shined her headlights on the truck and we both looked for any damage -- there was NONE of course to it. Then we looked at MY car.

On the front bumper of the Gigantic truck was this horn shaped iron thing that stuck out. This horn shaped iron thing did a pretty darn good job of crunching underneath my left taillight and cracking my bumper. The good news is the taillight still works and the bumper doesn't seem like its going to fall off.

I think my car didn't even make contact with the actual truck - just that iron horn shaped thing!

So ... what else is going to happen!??
