Rent and Mortgage

I think my water heater has a leak. I’m waiting to fix my rent problem, so I can call the landlord.

That’s underneath my sink, and that’s a bucket of water because the piping is messed up. I caught a mouse in it this morning! I haven’t bothered the landlord with it because I’ve been a month behind in my rent for the past three months. Since September, since I had to buy all the kids school stuff. I couldn’t really afford it, you know?

That’s a foreclosure notice with the amount on it. After my mom died I thought she was paying taxes, but then I got a notice in the mail that says $3,000… almost $4,000 owed in back taxes. Now, the city has a nice way of saying even though you've been dwelling in this house for however long, we won’t help you.
