Divorced! Single! Bankrupt! Homeless in 3 days! Plus pneumonia!
The realtor who had sold my Monte Sereno home asked, “Where are you going to move in 3 days?
It was January 27, 1990 and I needed to be out of the house when it closed escrow on January 31.
I said, “I have no idea! I have 4 cats and so much furniture I need the largest United Van Lines moving truck!”
He said, “Well, I can rent you a 4 bedroom/2 bath house for $200/month if you’ll clean it up.”
Then he said,
“You need to know that the previous owner shot his wife in the house a year ago. He then shot himself, killing himself, in the house.”
I moved in on January 31, 1990.
On February 2 he asked me, “If you could purchase this home, would you?” I laughed and said – “Of course!”
Thinking he must be joking because I was flat broke, had gone through bankruptcy, was in the process of an ugly divorce with horrible credit, was on worker’s comp because I had developed pneumonia while working 3 part-time jobs and going to school full time.
There was NO WAY I could get a home loan – at least that is what I thought.
On February 14 he brought papers and said, “Sign here!”
I’d done enough purchasing of homes I knew what these papers were and what they said. I didn’t ask any questions.
On February 16, 1990 – exactly 32 years ago TODAY! – I became the owner of this home – BAD FENG SHUI and all, but…
It was exactly what I was supposed to do and where I was supposed to be.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting bits and pieces of this story and the journey to CLEAN IT UP!
THANK GOODNESS I KNEW FENG SHUI plus HOW TO CLEAR NEGATIVE ENERGIES from a really bad energy home!
In my next few blogs I’ll share more of the stories about this house.
