It’s Monday and guess what?!?! We definitely did not find a new house over the weekend. haha! We did go over to the house to pick up some clothes for the week and to check it out. There was some weird thing taped up on the window from the city. I would have read it but I was distracted by the two letters from the back that were sent to the landlord. We have been receiving letters for her from the bank since we moved in… so this time I decided to ask a friend of mine to help me look into it. Turns out that some payments have not been made, and to make a long story short, the house may be close to foreclosure. He was not able to tell me for sure, but he said that she had been sent notices. So what does this mean? I have no idea, but that is no bueno.
Luckily this week we don’t have anything crazy going on, so we can focus on the very important task of finding a house because we have to be out of the hotel by Friday. Oh wait, what’s that? Oprah’s people want to film this week? That’s fine… one day wont hurt. Wait, what? They need to film Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday? That is no joke. Apparently, they need to film three days, and they told me that Kinsey should take two days off from work (not happening). They also keep trying to get me to get bio dad on (not happening). Since I said no on the bio dad, they tried to get pictures of him to use for the show (not happening). I know this show is going to potentially help my relationship with mom, but if you want me to be honest, it has caused more stress for us during this whole no house ordeal. If it were up to me, I would have liked to push it back a little more, since they pushed it back three months already, and wait until we find a place to live.
Would it make me a jerk if I prioritized finding a house over filming with the Oprah people? I do want to do the show, but not if it’s going to put me at risk of not finding a house to live in. Finding a place, movers, and getting moved in by Saturday probably wont happen if I am filming for three days… The thing that is turning me off about this whole thing is that I said that bio dad would not be involved in any way from the beginning, because this has nothing to do with him, and they keep trying to push it. I understand that they are just doing their job, so I wont hate on them. I would also like to grade myself on a scale of 1-10 for how this first week with my sister went: I would give myself a 3. I feel like I am boring her to death. haha.
It’s tough to find fun stuff to do with my sister when we have a baby and have to be in by 7 pm so that he can go to sleep. Trust me, house hunting is never fun for 18 year olds. At least she is the opposite of me. She is quiet, calm, cool, and collected. I, on the other hand, would be bouncing off the walls with boredom if I was in this situation. She has handled it like a pro… So I have one last week to make sure she has a blast. No pressure.
