Financial wrap-up

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:
  1. $2,628.46 due May 28.
  2. $2,628.46 due June 28.
  3. $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 did it!

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."

Wonderful!!! I'm so happy for you both!

I'm so happy for you!

This news makes me very happy.

Re: Financial wrap-up

i was busy with life, and just thought to look in here to see what happened -- that's really excellent! so glad for you!

what a relief it must be.

I've got a pay-it-forward that you could do right away that wouldn't cost any money, if you can. There's a community called adoptingcat which is doing an auction to help out Cat Valente and her partner, and they want to put a sticky post at the top of their LJ, but don't have the info on how to do it. I think they have the same kind of account as this one, so if you (or whoever set up the stickypost here) could hop over and share that info with them, it would be a great goodness.

Will do in the morning! I also sent a few dollars their way, along with words of encouragement!

I wanted to let you know about save_dave, another auction, to save another house from foreclosure. (Hi, I'm popelizbet; I promoted your auction in roundups, because last year the Internet helped one of my best friends avoid ruining her career by forestalling medical bankruptcy following her emergency surgery.)

Any assistance you might be able to render in boosting our signal would be heartily appreciated.
