It Finally Happened

Eviction Notice Letter on Front  Door

Diva texted Loverman Monday morning (July 28th) at 11AM and told him he had until midnight that day to get his stuff moved out.

A Writ of Restitution was posted on their door by the Denver County Sheriff. Loverman wasn’t sure of the date on the Writ. He says it looked like it was originally July 18th but appeared to have been altered to the 28th. In my opinion, the date on the writ was originally July 18th. But that’s irrelevant now.

He texted me Monday night at 6:45 to let me know initially, then called me again at 8:30 to tell me that he had most of his stuff packed into a U-Haul and he was headed back to his friend’s place. Then he read the Writ of Restitution to me. After he finished, he asked a few questions about the process (because I work for a real estate agency that handles evictions and bank-owned properties). One of his questions was, “Do I really have to be out by midnight?”

I explained to him that the Sheriff isn’t going to show up at his door at midnight with an eviction crew and make them leave. Evictions usually happen in the morning, so he should start to worry around 8AM Tuesday (the 29th). Also, without knowing when the notice was actually posted on the door, I wouldn’t be able to give him any kind of time frame.

I am SO thankful he started moving his stuff a long time ago! I am even more relieved that we had a chance to move his motorcycle Sunday afternoon. So that was one less thing he had to worry about in his mad dash to get all his crap out Monday night.

We talked briefly Tuesday morning. He told me that he still wanted to “hook up” with me for Date Night. I was glad, not only for myself but for him. He hasn’t slept since Sunday evening and that was only for an hour or so.

I want him to have a nice, hot bath and a comfy bed to sleep in with his “sexy pillows”.

Hopefully that is what we’re doing when this post publishes :)

Matching Phones

samsung-convoyLoverman’s replacement phone should be here by this coming Friday. Yay!

I bought him a leather case for it that latches onto his belt ($5 – gotta love Ebay!) because few months ago we were messing around and I accidentally broke his old plastic cover. I feel partially responsible — if his original phone case hadn’t been broken, he would have had somewhere to put his phone.

Right now he is using one of my spare phones.

This weekend I got a good giggle out of it because, right now, Loverman and I are using the exact same phone.

We have matching phones!

How cuuuuute!!!



The Before Time


How on earth did we make it through life before the 21st century? Without constant contact with every one and every thing at every moment?

I am one of the last ones out there, under 65, who doesn’t have a smart phone yet.

It’s just not on my list of priorities.

Plus, if *I* get a smart phone then I have to get one for Thing #1, Thing #2 and Doom-n-Gloom. I can’t afford that monthly phone bill! Four data plans?!?

Besides electric and rent, my phone bill is the largest bill I pay! And some months in the fall and spring, electric is less!!

Back to the point…

I don’t know what I am going to do while Loverman doesn’t have a phone!

We touch base with each other almost every single day.

Even his friend said something about it the other night, “Do you guys like have to talk every day or something? Why is she messaging me to see where you are? What’s the big deal?”

Loverman’s response was perfect, “We have a check-in system. If my phone is dead for too long or I don’t answer my phone or I am not where I am supposed to be, she sends out smoke signals for my ass. She checks in with me every day, too.”

Hopefully his phone problem gets solved before the weekend is over.

I don’t know if I can go that long without knowing anything and everything about him.

But, I will try.

And I will keep reminding myself that worry is stupid.

And pointless.

Because things will happen as they will

No matter what I know or think or feel.
