This month has been absolutely insane and it feels as if I have been running around like a chicken with their head cut off….However I am taking a moment to give a little update.
The garden is about to get a major change over. I am DONE with summer crops. Ugh, I hate summer. I went out today and completely cut down and out my pumpkin plant. I will never plant pumpkins again because of squash bugs, YUCK.
I came across a great recipe to kill crickets and roaches in my Garden Guy book. Equal parts of powder sugar and Arm & Hammer laundry detergent will wipe those suckers out. I tested it in my herb garden earlier this week because we had a major infestation of crickets and this morning they were all but gone.
THE BATTLE FOR THE HOUSE: Stage 2
I have chosen to keep everyone update on the battle for our home and maybe I can get and give advice about this entire process. I am positive that there is another family that reads my blog that has had this problem.
Here is where we are at….After I posted about fighting for our home my husband really looked over the mortgage. It isn’t our PMI that was raised but rather our taxes. Our taxes jumped up a 113 dollars. We still can not afford this jump. We called our lender and they refused to speak to us until we miss a payment! Are you kidding me?! We decided to miss a payment this month and we have waited for a response and guess what…nothing. We are calling this week however I am torn because due to my experience working in a major bank I KNOW that the person on the other end is not a professional. They are individual that needed a job and got a quick lesson in mortgage and bullying customers.
How far up do we need to go to talk to someone about our payments? Why are they refusing to talk to a family that has always made their payments on time? These are questions that will be solved and I am going to drag you guys along for the ride…
