The Budget Collector is no more.
I have no more Budget.
My wife and I just lost an eviction trial on Friday, we were late with rent in January, and even though I had a well prepared case we were unable to settle and lost at trial. The judge stayed the order of execution for the judgement and eviction until March 1, giving us a few more weeks, but we will have to vacate our apartment and find new places to live.
My wife and I are also separating at this time due to the incredibly toxic and unhealthy situation between us. So we are now looking for separate apartments.
She is moving to North Hollywood to be closer to her work, I need to find a studio or roommate situation on the West-Side as close to Brentwood as possible.
We both have full-time jobs, and we have a 9 year old daughter.
We've set up a Go-Fund Me and to date have raised $2,500 towards our relocation expenses. This is actually the amount of the judgement against us, so we still have a long way to go.
Having to reach out and ask for help is the hardest thing a man can do. But it something you HAVE to do as an adult some times.
I am in the process of selling off most if not all of the accumulated things I've collected over the last 30 years. Some is on eBay already. Others are at Big Lous and still more will be sold over the course of the next few weeks. I hate to do this, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
Any further posts here will probably just be updates.
Thank you and I love you all.
