So we've found a place. We were told that the people living there agreed to be out by February 1st...which came and went with no call from the manager. Okay. We call and the manager says she's just waiting on the title, which really shouldn't take that long. We waited a week and a half with no word, so we called her to get an update. She didn't pick up. We called, left messages, etc. for about a week and when we finally got a hold of her, we were told again that she's just waiting on the title. So we call the people who lived in the place before us and they agree to meet us to hand over the title (and then never show up, which they've done twice). We've agreed to meet the people to exchange the title tomorrow (again), but I guess the manager caught wind, because she called and said, "Since you're going behind my back, it's going to be another $350 to move in." 


I'm so angry. We're poor, you dumbass, and the rest of the money we have was going to toward repairs. What the fuck is your actual problem? Are you 12? Oh you went behind my back - who cares, as long as we have the title and pay you your fucking money? What is with the increase in price? AND such a huge increase, too. I bet you she's going to pocket that damn money. We have so few options too, it's not like we can just go somewhere else.

I've had this fic idea stuck in my head that I like quite a bit. It's FAR outside my comfort zone, both in terms of plot and content. I've got about 3k down and I'm just...not happy with any of it. To a degree that isn't normal for me (since I never like my writing). I think one of my problems is that I got the idea and just immediately started writing about it, but I should maybe sit down, work out some of the worldbuilding, maybe redo some of the plot. I'd really hate for my struggle to kill whatever motivation and fondness I have for the idea.

I was so so excited to find a package from [Unknown LJ tag] - a signed copy of Migrations! I took a selfie with the book, I just have to get off my lazy bum to post it :D

My brother agreed to continue paying the bills, but we decided that - because he has a baby on the way - we should probably start looking into finding a cheaper place to live so he'll have money to, you know, buy diapers and other necessities. We should be picking up the title to our new place tomorrow, have some minor repairs to deal with, and then...moving. Again. We've tentatively figured out that I can afford cable/internet, but we'll see how reality shapes up. I'll keep everyone apprised :)

I've written 3 McShep fics for fandom_stocking. We still have the rest of the week to fill out stockings, so I'm hoping to get at least two more done :)

Signs From the Universe for [personal profile] squidgiepdx [8k]
Five times John and Rodney 'meet cute', and the one time they finally end up together. AKA a string of connected meet cutes.

Take Me To The Wild for [personal profile] tarlanx [6k]
When Rodney stumbles into John's bar one evening, he learns that he and his two co-workers are not the only creatures who have left the safety of Atlantis.

On The Shelves for [personal profile] melime [1k]
Rodney's first book signing, after two years, is at John's bookstore.

I was told today that my mother called my grandmother to explain the situation - since they're going to need our new address, when we have one - and my grandmother got very angry and called my brother.

Sooo my brother came over today and said he was going to continue paying the bills. We're still going to save up as best we can to move into someplace cheaper - so we don't have to depend on my brother as much, so he can have more money for his child. But this does mean we are no longer teetering on the edge of homelessness.

I was ready to confront my brother and yell at him for what he was doing. I did tell him that if he plans to cut off us in the future (again), he needs to let us know ahead of time.

All my taxes are going toward saving up. I was hoping to use them to go to Squee Weekend, but alas, being poor strikes again.

I'm so relieved I'm lightheaded.
