Here's the picture folks:
$10,186 was transferred to Wells Fargo on April 27, 2009.
That should stop the sheriff's sale, but I need to contact the Habitat for Humanity folks to make sure that's what happened. I received a notice from the bank's lawyers that informed me the sale was postponed, so we don't have to worry about the May 8 date any longer.
I have three more payments on the repayment plan:
- $2,628.46 due May 28.
- $2,628.46 due June 28.
- $2,376.43 due July 28.
I'm going to treat these, as much as possible as regular mortgage payments and make them as early in the month as I can. That will avoid the double-whammy of having to pay July 28 and then turn around and make a regular mortgage payment on August 1.
These amounts represent $3,018.33 over what I would normally be paying for my mortgage.
Thanks to the donations that have come in from the auction there is currently $2,739.83 in my money-market account and $497.42 in my PayPal account for a total of $3,237.25 or 218.92 more than is required!
There may be a few more donations straggling in, or auction payments that haven't processed yet.
But we did it! You
I just need to keep on doing my normal thing now and pay my mortgage on time like a normal person and everything will be OK.
That isn't where it stops, though. You all have inspired me a great deal. I started out thinking this might work, that we might be able to raise enough to stall the mortgage company for a couple of months so I could find work and then work out a plan with them. You exceeded my wildest imaginings and did more to keep my hope alive during the long, dark months than you'll realize.
So now it's my turn. It'll take me a while, but I expect to exceed the imaginings of others, to do for people I know and people I've never met a little of what you have done for me. My Free Will Astrology
this week gave me a quote that goes along well with the starfish story that cakmpls
used to explain our little project. It's from the writer Sydney Smith who said, "It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little."
