Oh, Courtney My heart just aches for your parents. Hope some recourse can be found for this unfair action. Is it possible the place may have gotten your family's unti mixed up with someone else?

I'm so sorry, sweetie.

Courtney, this happened to Heather too. Maybe she'll have some words of comfort (she's working today). I am so sorry about this. Can you believe that this can happen? With no warning?

Hello everyone . I know I've missed tons lately, but I'm starting to get a little more control of my life and was able to skim back a little.

Kelly & Stacerita- Sorry you're in such pain & I hope you feel better soon.

Donna- Hope you get over your illness.

Beth- That really sucks about the van. I completely know how you feel!!!

Wendy- We all get in a funk once in awhile. Your a great person & shouldn't be so hard on yourself. Hugs to you .

Steph- Thanks for thinking of me .

Cristabel- Glad you got moved okay!!

Heather- Sounds like you had a marvelous birthday at Disneyland. What Fun!!

Dawn- Hugs & Kisses that you're okay .

Hope everyone else is good. My kids start school tomorrow so we're trying to get everything ready.

I was without a car for 4 days (which seemed like forever). My car got totaled while parked at my sisters house (someone side swiped it at full speed). Since I don't have a job I couldn't get financed for a new car (banks won't touch you with no job). I had to find a car I could pay cash for. So I went from having a car that was less than 2 years old to a used Toyota Camry with with over 150,000. The good thing is I had GAP insurance on the other car so I don't owe anything & I no longer have a car payment. The bad thing is, I'm so afraid the car will break at any minute. It runs fine, but I'm still nervous. But Toyota's are usually reliable.

Besides that I've had a lot of family stress so I'm just trying to stay sane .

Oh, the baby got her first tooth last week. She has one tooth on the top front so I call her snaggle-tooth .

Courtney, I'm so sorry that happened to your parents. I'm glad it wasn't anything priceless or irreplaceable such as momentos or photos, but still. I think they should sue the storage company. It all sounds very fishy to me. Good luck to you and your parents.


Katie, that sucks about your car! Thank goodness you don't still have to pay for a totaled car. I always wondered about that. Hopefully the one you have now keeps going strong for you.

I've mentioned before that my parents have been having some financial troubles lately mainly because both of their incomes got cut at their jobs. Well last year we moved from a 4 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment. The mortgage was getting too much (this was before my parent's pay cut) and the house was too big (always has been, we've been there since I was 2) for just the 3 of us. Since we were downgrading, my parents rented a storage unit. Well, my Mom goes to the storage to pay her bill and what does the lady tell her? "Sorry, we auctioned off all your stuff last week." Did we get a phone call? A letter that our payment was late? Anything? NOPE. A brand new HE washer and dryer. Gone. My grandparent's couches. Gone. My parent's dressers. Gone.



My Mom is in tears trying to find papers, bill statements, anything that shows her the last time she paid them. She remember she went in June to pay and the lady told her she can just pay half and that would be fine. The lady told my Mom today she sent us certified letters/bills. Did she have any copies of them? Nope. My Mom went to the post office and they don't have any letters/bills for us.

It's just material stuff. It can be fixed. I'll buy my parents all the washers and dryers in the world. I guess we're lucky all our personal stuff is here in the garage (my pageant dresses, all my grandmother's stuff, old pictures, etc.) and wasn't in that storage unit.

I'm just so MAD that the lady (or anyone working there) didn't make more of an effort to get a hold of us. Like washers and dryers and couches come from trees.

Thank you for letting me vent.
That totally stinks. And with no record that they tried to get ahold of you sounds a bit hokie if you ask me. Something is up with that and I would persue it. Good luck.

Yes Beth, the new plans love mah-velous to me. I want to do everything on the list!

Count me in for the Animation Bldg. God only knows my sketch couldn't be any worse than the one I did Sat with Cristabel & Cheryl. And I was sober then!

Courtney, sweetie, I am sooooo sorry this happened to your family. I cried when I read it. Stupid storage unit companies. They really push the envelope, don't they? But the important thing (like you said) is that none of your family heirlooms and special items were in there. But the new HE W/D set? I just bought a set for my unspoiled child this year and even at the Sears floor-model-slightly scratched-as is store it was over $1,200. I would be FURIOUS too if I were your mom.

Kelly, be careful during your recovery. You have been through so much, I cannot even imagine how you cope each day. Hugs to you...and Shane for being such a good DH.

Beth & Katie - that sucks about your vehicles. Darn it!

Have a good evening everyone.

PS I didn't mean to imply my DD is anything but an angel. I love her to pieces, but anyone that knows us really does know she is spoiled to death. Derservingly so.

Thank you so much, Christine. My Mom is getting together all her paperwork from the storage place, like receipts and the contract thing they signed. She kind of doesn't want to deal with it right now and I guess I don't blame her.

Thank you, Beth. It sounds weird to us too. My Mom said this lady at the storage place has never been friendly to her anyways.

Thank you so much, Linda. The washer/dryer set is fairly new. We put it in storage since our apartment came with a washer/dryer.

Okay, you talked me into it. I'll wear a birthday button even though it will be a few days early. I'm not sure why I still feel guilty about it though.....Catholic guilt maybe? LOL.

Courtney, I think something fishy is going on too and your parents got burned. I agree with Cheryl; you're parents should pursue this and get to the bottom of what happened. I'm so sorry that happened to all of you!

Katie - UGH, you're car got totaled?!? That just plain sucks!

I totally understand that your mom doesn't want to deal with all this right now, she must be feeling just terrible! Sometimes it just seems like one thing after another and you wonder when it will end. I do hope that she will pursue the issue though because it sounds like they do not have any record of the certified letters and should be held accountable, especially if you were not late enough on your payments to warrent what they did.

That is tough! I went without a car for several months and about a year after I finally got one, it was totaled by an apparantly drunk driver. Right now we are trying to help our son find a car so he can get to school (taking classes at 3 different college campuses this term) and I just don't feel comfortable that anything we can afford will work out. I hope your Camry works out for you!

It looks like we will be choosing between doing the Tour or doing PFF and Ariels, since the Tour takes all morning and includes lunch. Is that correct?

Ugh...this happened to my friend Amber about 3 months ago. EVERYTHING was gone!! She only moved what she needed into her parents house. All her 2 childrens babystuff that she was keeping GONE!! Furniture gone. Personal items gone. She is now suing the storage place. They have changed their story 5 times. Said they sent certified mail/bills but there was nothing ever delivered to her.

I hope they get your parents situation figured out. I could only imagine how frustrating it is.

Courtney--I know your Mom doesn't want to deal with this right now but I would demand evidence of the letters they claim to have sent--before they have time to "manufacture" it. Hugs to you and your family.

My Mom used to say I was always spoiled--but not a brat. And that's the same with Bree.

Katie: I hope things get better soon.
