Well, a lot going on in my life! I will be 47 this biggie, other than I think I found my first grey hair! Guess I should consider myself lucky there...

My mother in law passed away in May. Was very hard on the family, and still is. We found out she had a serious online gambling problem, and racked up SEVERAL thousands of dollars. She not only maxed out her own credit cards, she opened up some cards in my father in law’s name too. So, the ones in her name can be basically written off, but my father in law is now stuck with $30 in debt. PLUS..$40k left on the family house. Our plan is to take over the mortgage, have an auction to sell contents and construction equipment that is just lying around. He is like Sanford and Son (good thing this is a 40+ group, not many know that reference, hehe) an autioneer’s DREAM. So that will take care of the rest of the debt. If he were to file bankruptcy, the house would be lost...and if we paid what was left on the house, and since we are related, bankruptcy would take it out from under us.
So, we are in the process of all of that. Yes, we have a lawyer!
We would move there (just a stones throw from where we are at now) and take care of him. The other 3 siblings are of no help, and actually are upset thinking we are getting a house for $40k..not knowing we already paid over $20k some time ago when he became disabled to keep the house. There are 27 acres left that will be split up between the other 3 kids, free and clear. And they are all griping that we are being GIVEN the house..wth? My husband is the only one here. 2 siblings have been home MAYBE 3 times in 10 years. Death in a family brings out the worst in people, that’s for sure.
The overall plan will be, I open up my own dog grooming shop in the garage. I have been doing dog grooming for nearly a year now, and I love it.
Anyhoo, that’s what’s going on here!

Love it
