I have applications in with two agencies that provide help with move in deposits. If I'm approved, I have to provide a signed lease & they write a check to the landlord or property management company. Problem is, both have backlogged applications & limited funds, so I don't know if there'll be help when I need it. *crosses fingers*
I was much more concerned about SARS and h1n1 (which actually put my kid in the ICU) than I am about ebola. And it's possible there are no longer any cases of ebola in the US.
I hope folx are done panicking now.
Daisy's especially bothered by her incision, zooming around the room because she can't scratch her belly.
So here comes Jayden playing the Green Hill Zone music from the Sonic games and we laughed hella hard at poor Daisy's expense.
There are six of them. Five are parents. They are discussing how weaponized ebola is being used to scare the public into accepting "the vaccine agenda" so the government can control black people and other groups through vaccines that aren't what the doctors say they are. Oh, and it's already being done, with the flu vaccine.
Last week I saw a Facebook post from badrap.org about an upcoming spay/neuter event, and even tho I have chihuahuas not pit bulls, I texted them to ask if they had spots open for us. They texted back that pitties come first, but depending on turnout they might be able to help.
Now that the owner is selling this property, I will have to deal with prospective buyers coming into our flat & I do not have the right to refuse them as long as I'm given notice. The landlord or realtor must accompany them, but still. Don't want strangers walking thru my place! Hopefully there won't be much interest in the property before we move.
Almost the only places that accept dogs & section 8 are large complexes often replacing post-war public housing, in not-great neighborhoods that are becoming gentrified. I've pretty much given up on finding a house or duplex so I'm mostly focused on these large developments.
This morning I looked at a shabby 4plex near my current neighborhood. Only the outside. The grounds are pretty filthy, there are kids toys outside the 3 occupied units, and this tells me the current tenants probably aren't great neighbors.
I'm so traumatized by so many awful things happening in my life at once. I can't even think about my 25 years old earthquake stories, let alone put them into words. I can't even watch or read any of the retrospectives that are everywhere this week.
Fucked up how even though my income doesn't change, my portion of my subsidized rent goes up by about $20 -$30 EVERY YEAR. When I was talking to the realtor working with the owner to sell the property, she was surprised at the amount of rent I pay. She said all the tenants with section 8 that she'd worked with pay about $100.
