When I hear someone say that I think "wow- I don't have to worry about anything."
WELL- not in this case. My daughter and son-in-law were having a problem in their apt. with mold and their landlord wouldn't do anything about it. They had found out it was the cause of the kids constantly getting sick all winter long. All the landlord said was bleach down the walls and that will take care of it. Well it didn't- it came back. They had 2 months left until their 2 kids were out of school for the summer. They were going to try and just wait it out.
They had told me about it last weekend and had told the other mom about it too. Well she took it upon herself to call the kids on Tuesday morning and told them to pack their belongings, that they were moving. She was on her way up to their house (a 1 1/2 hr. drive) and was bringing a uhaul for their stuff. """"She had everything taken care of.""""" Well the kids rushed to pack and she showed up at 4:30 and just threw their things in a pick-up and a flat bed trailer. Said to leave the rest. Then 1/2 hour away from their home asked them where they were gonna stay when she got them down to where she was bringing them? What-- wait a minute--- didn't you say you had everything taken care of?? Then when they got to the storage unit-- she turned to my daughter and asked how much money they had because THEY had to pay for it. AGAIN--- didn't you say you had everything taken care of..... So my daughter calls me crying and asking what they are going to do. Now they have no home to go back to because their landlord seen them moving out and no where to go to. Her mom-in -law doesn't even have a home of her own--- she lives with a friend and her husband. So she says you guys can't live with me. And they can't live with his sister and her family. Our place is too small for them to stay with us. There are 5 of them and we only have a 2 bdrm place. I feel so bad for them.
How could anyone say such a thing as "I have everything taken care of", and then turn around and do something like this to your own kids and grandkids??? It's like just putting them out into the streets. They don't even have a vehicle to get around with.
My question to my friends is--- if someone told you "they had everything taken care of" what would that mean to you?????
*******I HAD MANY WRITE ME WANTING TO KNOW HOW THEY COULD SEND ME SOME MONEY TO HELP THE KIDS OUT. SO I WANTED TO ADD THIS FOOTNOTE LETTING EVERYONE KNOW THAT THEY COULD JUST DONATE ANY MONIES BY EITHER DONATION BUTTON ON THE RIGHT SIDE. FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL ALL MONIES RECEIVED BY THOSE BUTTONS I WILL USE FOR THE KIDS. THEN AFTER THAT I WILL GO BACK TO USING IT FOR THEIR INTENDED PURPOSES. *******
I THANK EVERYONE FOR YOUR KINDNESS.
