postponed wedding, cancelled Dragon Con, new address (eventually) - KRAD's Inaccurate Guide to Life
ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
postponed wedding, cancelled Dragon Con, new address (eventually)
So New York State has a thing whereby if you don't have a formal rental lease, you are considered "month to month." That's the situation I've been in in this apartment building (first on the third floor from 2001-2008, then on the second floor from 2008 to the present), and it has its good points and bad points.

One of the latter is that the landlord can announce that the lease is cancelled with only 30 days' notice.

Last Thursday, we were given notice that our lease was cancelled and we must vacate by 31 August.


Just as things have been settling financially for us for the first time since Wrenn's contract gig ended in 2013, this happens.

On the other hand, two major expenses have been removed for the nonce: we have postponed our wedding, so we are no longer getting married on 17 September as planned. We're looking now at April 2017 for the new marriage commencement date.

The other, sadly, is that I have cancelled my appearance at Dragon Con 2016. The timing is just awful, as Labor Day weekend is a time that will be required for moving and/or unpacking.

We are now frantically checking real estate ads, talking to people, and generally running in circles and screaming and shouting -- plus, y'know, getting work done, seeing as how we've both got deadlines that don't care about our personal crises. We're looking at a place in our neighborhood this afternoon, and have a ton of other feelers out as well.

Please all of you send happy thoughts in our direction. The next month is going to be insane..............................

Well, that's just typical. :/

I'm really sorry you have to deal with that now--those blindsides that come along right when you're settling into your groove are the worst.

Sending major positive house-hunting karma.

Sorry about your travails, Keith. I hope you and your lovely fiance will find a place soon.

Sending good luck, best wishes and white light. Hope you find a good place soon. Moves are hell, but the worst part is over once you find the right place. Hugs to you both.
