More mobile home rantings.....
Jackie, my real estate agent, called me today. She got further info on the park I liked. What a bunch of cheapskates! They make the "tenants" responsible for trash, sewage, etc. The space rental is $621/mo.!
That's crazy! All that's included in that price is a crappy rec. room...which I'd never use. They don't include water, I'd have to start paying for that (as many different places as I've lived, I've never paid for water!). I am trying to lower my expenses, not add to them! $621 isn't much of a break off my current $800 rent! And while, yes, at least it would be something I own, I would be paying $621 for land that will never be mine...what's the difference from renting? What a pain! I did some research into HUD homes, but they are not that much cheaper than regular for sale homes, plus you have to do work on them (sold "as is"), plus they are mostly in crappy areas of town.
It's looking like I will be going no where, which is mostly good. I had said I wouldn't move again until I could afford to buy a nice home that will be mine...I don't think a mobile home really fits in that catagory. If this year turns out to be good for me, career-wise, like I feel it will be, then I will be able to buy a house soon enough. I just have to hold on until that day comes. I long for the day when I can purchase my own 3BD, 2BA (or 3BA!) home, with a pool/jacuzzi, 2 car garage, sizeable backyard, & fireplace. Ahhh....what a lovely thought. It will happen...I just have to be patient.
So Alicia did a "reading" for me. She said that romance isn't in the cards for me right now. Some dating....but nothing serious. She also saw the name Mark, but I don't know anyone by that name. She stills seems the same career things, that things start seriously rolling for me in April/May, but even a knew one....a great opportunity coming in late March that will bring in more opportunities. Sounds great to me.
Eric did call me. He jokingly brought up how I deleted him from my match list of over 90 men. He wants to hook up this week. He may not turn into something serious, but he's fun to spend time with. Cute & personable. I am going to give him a call later tonight or tomorrow.
My landlord might take Toby. I can't be sure of that yet, but she's definitely interested, & she LOVES animals. She said there was also a lady down the street who was thinking about getting a dog. I am excited with the prospect of Toby getting a better home. Plus, I'd get to go visit him anytime I want.
