This weekend has been all about getting things ready for the packers to come on Tuesday. Part of that was an assignment I gave myself to go through boxes in my office that I moved into this house in 2005 that have not been touched.
I figured, if I haven't needed the stuff in the past 3 1/2 years, why would I need the stuff later, so I was planning on going through them to throw stuff away...
However, I've been procrastinating and procrastinating and doing other things instead... like writing this blog post!!
I finally went to my closet, sat down, and started going through the first pile. After only 2 minutes, I found a piece of paper I had been dying to find!! It's a piece of paper that shows payment on a deposit that I gave up hopes getting back.
You know that when we get into real estate, there are many costs involved. Some are straight out costs and expenses, while others are deposits. I have been trying to get back a deposit for the past few months, and have had no luck because I couldn't show the payment.
On the flip side, the person owing the deposit felt they weren't responsible for prooving that I didn't deserve a deposit. Anyway, I had basically chalked it up to a loss a couple of weeks ago, until now!
Now, I'm excited that I'm going to see this money again, though I haven't seen it in almost 9 years!! It's like FREE money! There really is a money tree, isn't there!!
Ok, ok, stop procrastinating and get back to the closet!!
