    I don't often get it, but I have it tonight. It's a combo of getting over this darned cold, and realizing that I have to evict a tenant who is mentally ill, has sole custody of a special needs son (autism?), and would be a perfect candidate to go on Hoarders. :eek:

    I ended up with her because she was living with the fellow who bought this fixer upper on a sales contract. I had to repossess the house, and since she was utterly entrenched there, I didn't have the energy or will at the time to kick her out. So, I let her stay for $500 a month.

    I won't go into details, but things are getting weird, she won't answer my calls, and I've resolved that I need to give her notice.

    I want to sell the house, but will need to do some major renovations, and I'd like to do that while hopefully the market starts recovering. I was hoping to keep her in there another year, but I think I'll have to start the eviction process now. I don't think she'll go easily. I'm pretty sure she's either bipolar or schizophrenic, and has agoraphobia. She is on disability for both physical and mental problems, and is most likely on large doses of pain meds too. She is very manipulative.

    I've managed to handle her with kid gloves until now, mainly by staying away, and I shudder at the thought of what the inside of her house looks like. The outside is deplorable, and I had the city complain once.

    It's just another bump in the road, but I need to extract this woman and her crap, get this house and garden in shape, and sell the house in order to fund my last two children's college education.

    Anyways, this is weighing on my mind tonight, and it's ruining my sleep. :eusa_pray:

    I get insomnia a lot - but without the burden of crap that you have to deal with. You have my sympathies! I can offer no advice on your tenant, other than to grit your teeth and do what is necessary.

    I had insomnia last night too. I did manage to get 4 hrs of sleep but I'm on my way to work and I am tired.

    You should just get it overwith asap. Once you get the ball rolling, you will sleep better.

    That's a tough one.

    That must be hard to deal with insomnia regularly.

    I have a busy day tomorrow, and it's 0422 here now.

    Yes, I'll call my lawyer and leave it entirely in their hands. They can handle everything, including the initial 30 day notice to vacate.

    I've been putting a ton of money to pay off my house in 6 months, and got real focused on that. I'm having to change plans midstream, which is always hard for me at first. I wanted to pay off the house, then start working on this rental, and work on getting her out.

    First off the market is never going to recover.:eusa_shhh:
    Second. Call the law and let them toss her out. They like that better than BJ's from transvestite street hookers.:eusa_angel:
    Last. I recommend a glass of Blantons or Flor de Cana.:cool:

    I used to be a chronic insomniac.

    The way to help you go to sleep is to divert your mind away from what is distracting you. I listen to podcasts every night before I go to sleep.

    xo... you were thinking of buying a property with rental possibilities... are you starting to see what you're in for?

    Middleman... sorry to hear about your problems pard, but a person has to do what they have to do. Just get it over with.
