Hi All! You may not remember but last week I was talking about how frustrated I was with all the problems we were having. From the huge 15K medical bill my husband got because of the bites he got from a dog, which translated into rabies treatment and also, the problem with our roommates and they leaving without paying all the dues. Well, I have to say we have been blessed by God, Karma or however you want to call it. We got the bill from the ER just to find out that of the 3k bill we had to pay only $1300. That is still a lot but hey! I will not complain. We set up payment plans already so we are good for now. We are still waiting for the rabies shots bill (12k), but we will work something out. We are hoping that the money we pay will be earnt back once we finish the case in court with the dog owner and her insurance. God knows... But for now, I will not hold my breath as my mental health and peace is worth way more than that.
Now, on the other hand.. my roommates situation (they left without paying the whole break lease fee which caused us all to be liable for the whole lease).. So, this Monday I got some paperwork from the company we leased the apartment from and apparently I got a credit of $800 and something. I was very confused so I called them. For my surprise (very very pleasant one), they told me they managed to rent the place so we were not liable for the lease. And not only that, but we were getting a refund. Horraay!!! I apologized to all the girls in the office. It was a relief to hear them say that they knew it wasn't us (my husband and I) and that they were glad we got out of that bad situation. Now about the check.. I would have to ask the roommates to sign for the check once received. It gave me a little headache but oh well, at least we were not going to be evicted because of these stupid roommate people. I was doing numbers and from those 800 they would have gotten 400 back if it wasn't because they owe us 450+.. so basically not $ for them. I wasn't sure how I was going to get them to sign for a check they would not get $ off, but I just left the thought aside until the check was received.
I got the check in the mail.. and to be quite honest, I was afraid of opening it but I did. I was jumping in happiness when I saw the check was made to my name only. I do not understand why. Maybe they thought it was fair, maybe they made a mistake, maybe maybe maybe.. I don't know but legally I can cash it and morally I can say we do deserve the whole amount. So, I will do it. That check money will be the first step to start building our apartment. I feel so happy and blessed :) So, I just wanted to share that after all, maybe it does pay off to do the right thing ;)
On a final note and as a teaser.... You may have noticed how much I love animal fibers, they are so magical and so giving that you can make just about anything from them. You can do amazing creations! So, a while ago I contacted this super talented UK Etsy Artist Rhian from Sebold's Originals with the hopes of requesting a custom mini felted creature. She emailed me with the progress today and she included the lovely picture. My new little whimsy creature is the baby one next to her first original ever (right). Isn't it the cutest??!! I am sooo excited! Plus she was very kind by allowing me to make payments as times are rough. I love supporting other Etsy artists because I know other Etsians would/will do that too for me :) I will come back to do the whole bells and whistles once I get the final guy. So.. here's my teaser... Hope you love it!
Here is my guy, he has not opened his little eyes yet"! xoxoxoxoxox
