life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans

I am not having a good week. At all.

We have to move. I haven't even unpacked all the boxes. Arghh. We rented a house in our new town so that we could get a feel for the community and figure out where we wanted to make our home. The neighborhood we are in is very nice, we like the schools, the kids have made friends, and it is a 10 minute drive to hubby's work. We don't want to move right now. But apparently the owners of the home haven't paid the note on the house since November. I don't know what they have been doing with our rent, but it wasn't what they were supposed to be doing. Now the house is going into foreclosure and we have a few weeks, maybe a couple of months, to find another place and move. I'm boiling mad. I am angry that these people would rent the house to us, have us sign a one year lease and then not make their mortgage payments. No, furious. Furious.

The worst part isn't the packing up and moving. What really upsets me is that I have to uproot my children again. They just got comfortable here with their new rooms, the new neighborhood, the new schools, and now we have to make them go through it all again. Can you sue someone for causing your children emotional suffering? Probably doesn't matter anyway; they have filed for bankruptcy.

I suppose I should try to see the bright side of things. At least we don't have to move until school is out. I have a bit of time. Just not enough. And this is not what I had planned. Oh, well.
