The lawyer we spoke with said it was not going to be worth it to sue the "lovely" people that have left us holding a bag with our hands tied. Although did say we could probably win. The house is re-listed but we can not sell till we get a termination letter signed by buyers and noone can get in touch with them or their lawyer.
The HOA is threatining to tow the bus because it was supposed to be gone by Friday. It was not our plan to still be here. Crap happens. Please don't tow it. We will be gone by monday no matter what. I promise. Cut us a bit of slack, please. The driveway around the back tire has cracked and sunk a bit. Surely we will have to fix that. I see more $$$$$ flying out the window that is non-exsistant at the moment.
Everyone is beyond exhausted and cranky at this point.
If the house doesn't sell in the next couple of months the bank gets it and we lose the money that was supposed to pay for the conversion of the bus. That will leave us with a mountain of debt on top of the mountain that we got into trying to keep the darned house when business went south. As you can see it only gets better.
Kinda makes me more nervous about what life on the road has got in store for us. The imagination is in overdrive. Not in a good way either. It's been one hell of a ride getting there.
I have been holding onto faith with all my might but to be honest I don't know how much longer I can keep it together. God is gonna have to give me a booster shot or send this ride to a comfortable cruising level for awhile and quickly.

Sold the we thought

So we were supposed to close on the house today, right? Well someone butthead changed their minds last minute yesterday!
The people that were supposed to buy our house changed their minds when it was to late but, of course, they found a way to get out of it. First they tried saying something about the roof. I'm not really sure what it was but supposedly they said something. After the roof they said we lied to them about the radon test saying we told them it hadn't been tested before when it really had, or something like that. We got the papers from the last radon test but, of course, there was no number thing on it, I think my mom said it was for the radon percentage or something, i dunno, but now they found their loophole. They don't have to buy anything! I hope their happy!
Now we're leaving on monday, because that's when my mom scheduled the electricity and whatnot to be shut off. I was excited too! Way to ruin the adventure people!
I guess it does give us more time to work on the bus though doesn't it.

6 days!

So we finally brought the bus home! We had it here for one day until the HOA lady came. Dad just told her we were leaving in a week so thank God she let us stay! The neighborhood garage sale was today. there were a couple of people that looked at the bus in the driveway and got this look of disgust on their faces but, i think most of the people just asked what we were doing with it and after we told them they thought it was really cool. My parents are getting a bunch of help on the bus right now. The have a carpenter that they're bartering with, the family that came to help us and theres an electrician that's helping with the electricity! I think the electricity is almost done, i really have no clue but, i do know that the cabinets are almost done! Yay! so we have 6 days to at least get the basics of the bus and then we have to finish it up while we're living in it. We're also debating weather or not to paint the bus purple, black and white or red and black. What do you think? I'm not sure if anyone reads these things but if you do leave a comment telling what color you think we should paint it. that's all i have to say. Adios!

recycling debacle

Looking at an old beat up dresser and thinking we can save a few bucks, we begin transforming it into what is supposed to be dinette benches. So begins our 4&1/2hr project which ends in it falling apart and looking like a kindergartner could have done a better job. It was either laugh or cry so we opted for laughing at our second failed attempt at re-purposing furniture. Not just laughing but we were so flippin tired that we laughed so hard were crying. Guess you can say we laughed and cried. It was bad. It just fell apart. I'm still laughing. No more re-purposing furniture. Never again. Could have had 2 benches built in the time it took us to create nothing. We needed that laugh so I guess you can look at it as a good thing. We have video of the recycling debacle which I'm sure Jacqualine will post.
Till next time,
