Day 20 and the Long and the Short of it...

Today I'm most thankful for blue skies, shampoo, clean clothes, warmth of the sunshine and Sonic's Route 44 drinks. Yup that's all I can manage today... at least it's something. Right?

OK, I'm going to be blunt here about what we are going through. I have it down pat to a 15 minute low down in person. I'll see what I can do here. Bad contractor took $53,000, only spent $18,000-$20,000. Leaving 33,000 not accounted for. left us with a basement that had to torn out due to the fact it would have come down if the house had been put on it and if we would have had codes in my county, would have been condemned.And had yet to tell us after 2 years where the money went. First attorney tried to bluff them all, didn't work, said I'm sorry you can live above the law office until things are worked out. NO I'm not joking. Second atty filed a law suit to no where. :) after more than a year and a half we have gotten no further than filing, thanks to Perry and Double D.  It's a whole mess, and if we only had $$$ we could have fought them all.

We had to redo the contract with the private investor (Perry) who wanted to make it uncomfortable on us so we would get AWAY from him (he was trying to help us... makes you wonder what he would do if he wanted to hurt ya doesn't it?). He made it so much so we couldn't keep up with the payments due to the record low milk prices, cows not getting bred back when they should have, and having to almost starve them last year to be able to pay him then.

So he has the right to foreclose on us, and he is exercising those rights. Right now these are our options... GOD (our best and really only option), pack up and leave (to where I don't know, I found a really nice sound place in NY, but that's rather far), fight (take chapter 12 or 13) which is a long shot at best, OR come up with $320,000.00 by the 9th of December. So that's it in a nutshell... sorta... how do you condense 2 years worth of lies, waiting, hoping, blah blah blah, lip service ... trusting and believe the lies you've been told into 15 minutes and 2 pages? I don't know... All I know is that the laws need to be changed! This can't be the first time these people have done this to someone, they are to good at the shell game for this to be the first time.

Also we have forgiven L. ... (contractor who was a CHRISTIAN, a PK to boot, and took the money and ran) we want to let the law suit go... our current atty won't. Why you may ask? I haven't a clue... and it doesn't matter at this point. But some how I bet if we had $$$ coming out of our ears things would be moving right along, if we had that kind of money we wouldn't have bothered.


  1. That is something else. You're in my heart and prayers. Take care.

  2. I am wracking my brains trying to think where you can turn. As you say, if they are doing this to you they have done it to others....state attorney general maybe? I just don't know.

  3. Jenn, thank you. :)

    threec, I will be at some point filing with the AG of both MO and KS. The thing is these people have gotten so good no one sends complaints they just have I guess given up. I've been told that there is nothing they will do unless there are multiple complaints and there aren't any. The thing is we don't want to tick the lender off any more than he is. His atty is well, lets put it this way... he's a shark and we are krill, chum, so forth and so on. :)

  4. Hi Sara,

    My name is Mary Baker from Conservative Moms for America. I would like to invite you to join us so that if nothing else you can find friends who will support you through this. My husband and I lost our home last year, and it was the same thing, running from one rabbit trial to the next. But at the end God taught me the lesson of a life time. God's Word says that the blessings of the Lord makes one rich and He adds no sorrow to it.

    This situation is bring alot of sorrow into your life. That is definitely not what God would desire for you. I would like to encourage you to think about what things this way. Do you enjoy having peace in your life? The last thing my husband and I desired was to lose our home, the place with all of our memories. The place that said so much about who we were, or so we thought. What decision would bring about peace in your life. Sometimes God closes things in order to bring about new things and when we try and hold on, we prolong discontent in our lives.

    We have a prayer group within our organization that I will be adding your name to and your site you never know how God will work things out. But as a sister in Christ, I desire that peace would fill your life. There is a new beginning waiting for you and God will lead you to the best place.

    Let Him guide you there.

  5. I found a really nice sound place in NY, but that's rather far

    But it's also where I am ... and threecollie! We'd love to have you all for neighbors!

    I know. That's not your first choice. But maybe God has a reason for moving you. Whatever His plans, I'll keep praying that He gives you peace through it all.

    PS If you did move, I'd get to meet your adorable goats!
