2nd Mortgage Payment of the Month

August 26th, 2011 at 10:40 am

That is right! I am making my second mortgage payment of the month. It is the August payment and it is on time! I am so excited. The only other time payments have been on time is when I get a lump sum of money. This is because of my careful planning. And hopefully I will be able to keep it current.

I offered the renters a compromise on the rent. I offered to let them pay 1/2 on the first and 1/2 on the fifteenth. If they agree to that I will still be able to take their payments and apply them to the mortgage each month. Maybe it will be easier for them knowing they don't have to come up with a large sum of money. I felt like such a horrible person yesterday. She said that she had $250 for me($20 short of what she owed). I told her I would meet her and get it. She then sent me a text asking if they could only give me $200 so they could get some groceries for her kids. I told her no. It was difficult to say no. But I have gotten to the point that I am not responsible for them. She has local family...let them buy her groceries. And I am not 100% certain that she is not receiving food stamps. I have just reached my limit of being used.

    Hi No. Georgia, i am sorry that your parents aren't feeling well. i hope that things improve soon. As far as the renters, i'M glad that you finally got/ getting some money from them. If they don't have money for food , they canalways try a food pantry. Something is wrong w/ the husband, he does not seem to mind taking advantage. if thety don't pay yoy twice amonth, i would evict them, even if it is a hassle. iknow you feel bad, esp., as there are children involved, but you have been super patient. i hope things keep improving for you, and your family. Wishing you the best.I still enjoy your blog.

    good for you! We have been in their shoes, so I can sympathize with them, but you have to be strong and not let them take advantage of you.

    She doesn't have money for groceries but can pay for a phone with a text package. People's priorities are all screwed up. I agree with the others; stay strong.

    Good for you! I think that was a good compromise and maybe now they can meet their rent. Way to stay strong on not taking the $200 and taking the full $250!
