Banks suck… Day 708 22OCT10

One of the "presents" I received for my birthday yesterday was a letter from Bank of America to let us know that our number finally came up. We have a court date set for 23NOV for them to take our house away. That should put our eviction notice right around Christmas or a little after. I have talked to everyone I could find at BOA for the last two years trying to sort out our options, trying to get a modification, trying to get a short sale agreement,  trying to find anyone who would listen, all to no avail. Unfortunately banks don't care what the reasons are only what their bottom line says. So now we are faced with another loss, our home. They are certainly worse things to lose and we will find a way to persevere and move forward. If anyone knows of a place we could rent let us know :) My biggest worry is how it will affect Joshua and Jarrod. This is the house they have grown up in and it will be a huge change for them to process. Joshua already has had to deal with so much in his short little life and I am concerned that he will think that this is somehow his "fault" the same way kids in a divorce think that they caused it to happen. Nothing is further from the truth but "truth" to an eight year old is something entirely different.

Joshua is still coughing a bunch but is feeling okay. His temperature is staying normal so we are firmly on concerned/watchful but not ready to cross the line to worried. He got to spend the day as the only kid at home since Jarrod went on a field trip to Busch Gardens with his Virtual School class. Jarrod took Pa with him as a chaperone and he had a great time. He took this picture from, as he excitedly put it, inches away from the bengal tiger. He was very proud of the picture.

Tomorrow my dad is coming over in the morning and I think we will also see Miss Allie and Jamie which will definitely brighten up our weekend.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Your Dad is absolutely correct - BOA sucks! There appears to only be corporate greed in their black hearts. If I had a single penny left in the hands of BOA I would remove it. But I did that months ago when they started turning deaf ears to your family's situation.

I shall now behave.

Jarrod - what an absolutely AWESOME photo! It looks like you were close enough to that tiger to reach out and give him (or her) a couple of strokes.

All of you keep kickin butt. Joshua is the Mighty Warrior and the Gandy Gang is a Mighty Family. You are my Champions.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Praying for you all, as always. BOA sucks.
