Hello mylotters For some of you might know that I have been trying to find a place to rent before winter hits us. We currently are living in our camper and it is taking a toll on me with the cold weather coming on. So a couple of weeks ago we decided to start looking for a place to rent. This past Saturday we had an appointment to look at a Mobile Home. We went and we both fell in love with this place. It is out in the country and has 12 acres of land, gargage,outbuildings and a real nice mobile home. The lady that is renting it took our name and some references and said that she had others coming to look at it and she would let us know if we get to rent it. I have been so nervous over this that it is unreal. I want this place so bad. I feel like that because I want it so bad that she will choose someone else to live there. You know to want something so bad that you just know that you cant have it. Has anyone felt like this before? Do you think that I am just expecting the worse? Tell me what you think.

My situation is far more different, but everyone has had something they wanted so bad that they cant have. But you just have to have a little hope and faith with trying to get what you want. Maybe it's not the right time for you to get what you want yet, since there are a lot more things to be done in the present for a more positive future. Not everyone gets what they want in the present, it shall come in time when they're ready. It won't be the exact place, but you'll eventually get what you want soon enough just try not to expect too much out of the situation and just relax. And live in the present.

Hi LifeGuru Thanks for that. I really needed some positive thoughts to help me get thru this. I know that I need to patient and have some faith to go with that too. I just hope that she will allow us to be the ones to rent this trailer. It is like the perfect place for us both. Thanks again for sharing and have a great evening my friend.

Hi kitty That prayer must have worked out for me. The lady called me last night after she got home from church. She has decided to let us be the ones to rent it. She said that she liked our attitude and thought that we would take care of it. I was so excited that I jumped right into my husbands arms. I had this big smile on my face that would not leave. It is the next morning now and Im still smiling. I go meet with her on Tuesday to go over the lease and get the keys. I will then try to move into it toward the weekend if everything goes well. Oh kitty Im so excited. I will take some pictures and send them to you as soon as I can. Thanks for sharing your kind words with me. Have a great day my friend. Keep smiling..

Oh yes I cant wait. Just the little things that people take for granted are now big issues to me. Like being able to to stand straight up when making your bed, walking around the bed, and then the kitchen. Oh gosh, having room to move around in the kitchen..LOL..I real ready to get into that trailer..Thanks for your kind words. Have a great day and keep smiling.

Hi rosepedal, I really hope you get the place you want to rent as a camper van doesn't sound too good for winter and you need a bit more floor space to clean and keep you happy. Remember that one? You just have to keep your feet on the ground and keep looking in case you don't get it. I know what it feels like to want something so bad, but I didn't get it.

Hi thea I just got the call and we did get the trailer..YEAAAAAAA...Im so happy right now that I can't hardly type. I guess good things do come to good people. I was ever so thankful for this. It is such a pretty place. I truly love it. It has everything on the outside for the hubby and then it has everything on hte inside for me. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I greatly appreciate it. Have a great day and keep smiling..

Hi thea I was just telling book that I go over tomorrow and sign the lease papers. If all goes well it might actually be this weekend. That is my goal. It will depend on the money that I will need to transfer all the utilities in my name. I will let you know how soon. Thanks for sharing your excitement with me. Have a great day and keep smiling..

It was that way for me when I was waiting to see if we were going to be the ones to buy this place. I knew they were showing it to others. IN fact, I brought my mother-in-law out to see this one after we put in the paper work on it and other people were here looking at it. We made an offer, which was $5,000 less than the asking price. The other people I saw out here offered him the asking price. I just knew that he would not let us get it since they offered the asking price. But he counter offered for us paying another $2,500. and we accepted. He said that we were the first ones to put in for it and he was going with us. That was the longest 2 months for me. My nerves were on edge. Plus if I had not gotten this place I would have had to come back to Tennessee from the coast in Mississippi which was 10 hours drive. SO I would have had to come and rent a hotel room for at least another week to look for another place again. I had started making plans on what we would do with this place if we got it. SO did my husband. We got it and I have not been through that again. We were also staying in our motorhome so having a place bigger and roomier was a huge plus for me. We have been here for 13 years this month. Good luck getting this place. I hope you do!

Hi moondancer Im glad that you got thru your nerves and seen that it was worth it in the end. I know how you felt. But , I will say this...She called us back last night and told us that she would rent to us. She liked our attitude and thought we would be the ones to take care of it the best. I have been on cloud nine since then. I have a smile on my face that won't go away. Since I live in the camper right now I don't have a lot to pack up here. All of our stuff is in storage. We are going to try to start the move this weekend. I just hope that we can. You know the sooner the better. Thanks for sharing your story. Have a great week and keep smiling.

Hey moondancer I got the keys today for my new place. I have to paint the utility room before we move in. So Im going to try and get that done toward the end of the week. Then if things go well then we should be able to move starting this weekend. Thanks for all your kind words. By the way I still have that smile on my face. It feels so good too. Now you keep smiling too my friend.

The way i look at it is if you expect the worst then any thing that happens will not shock you or upset you.I expected the worst about the house we are living in and we got this one.We had to put an offer in and our offer was slightly better than a few other peoples offer that they had put in.So good luck i hope you get it.Let me know.

Hi jugs I did start thinking that we wouldn't get it just for the reason that you said. Then last night I got the phone call from her. She has decided to let us rent the trailer. She said that she liked my attitude and thought that we would take care of the place. I was so excited that I was jumping around like crazy. I cant wait to go meet with her to get those keys. I will let you know what comes about now.

It is a buyers market for mobile homes right now so do not despair. I hope this one works out for you but if it does not, you will find another. I've seen people buy them in this market for less than the first and last month's rent and deposit would cost on an apartment!

Hi drannhh I got the news last night that we did get the trailer. I am so excited about it that I have had a smile on my face since then. It is Monday morning here right now and I still have the big smile on my face. I just can't wait to get those keys and plan on moving. It probably will be this weekend if all goes the right way. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and have a great week. Keep smiling.

Think positive until you have reason not to. I was stuck living in a tent and then a camper for months with 3 small children. I was so so anxious to find a place it wasn't funny. I actually NEEDED to find a place by the time school started because a camper is not considered a legal address and my oldest daughter needed a legal address to start school. Also it was getting pretty darn cold. I tossed pride aside and literally begged various landlords to rent to me. I got a place and it wasn't one I'd have chosen under any other circumstances but it was a roof over our heads and it had running water and heat and it was home. It wasn't the home of my dreams but it was better than the camper so I took it. I hope you get this place. In the meantime, keep looking.

Heck Im still smiling.. Thanks for your kind words and I hope that things work out for you too. Keep smiling.

yes, I do know about the camper life. It was heaven at first as we'd been living in a tent. Trust me...it got old fast. Well, I'm so happy for you that you got the trailer! Congratulations! Me....that situation was a long time ago. I still remember it clearly and never ever want to be in that spot again. I remember when I finally got a place we were so so excited. Just to have running water and real beds! Have fun packing and moving. Sounds like this will be an exciting move for you!

I think we have all had that feeling a few times in our lives. It's like forbidden fruit. You become more intrigued with something because you are either not supposed to have it in your procession, or you can't afford it. You at least have an opportunity. For that reason, your situation isn't exactly like that, but it reminded me of something from my childhood. I remember my brother getting a a soccer ball from the mall one day, and taunting me with it for a few minutes before going outside. I told him that i had no interest in soccer, and didn't care about his stupid ball. Those weren't my exact choice of words, but that was the jist of my response. He told me that the ball was off limits, and if he saw me kick it even once he was going to body slam me. We were both wrestling fans...he did slam me before...I knew he meant business. That ball became an obsession for a few months, then he lost it at some point and we both moved on.

Hi cbjones Does your brother still body slam you from time to time or do you body slam him now...LOL..Well I did end up getting the mobile home after all. I did all that worry for nothing. We got the keys to the place today. Im proud to say that I am a renter of a grand place. Now I have to get things ready to move in. Thanks for sharing and you have a great day.

hello rose pedal yes i had something that i want for once in a while. but unfortunately i don't always get it. i am the one who mostly prefer to compromise and sacrifice and get what i want later. but that's okay, not all my wants are worth getting, some are considered useless and became useless in the end. before, i want to earn 100$ from mylot but i got screwed and got my old accout deleted. so, am starting a new now, no more mistakes...i think.

Hi knight That is good that you didn't give up totally. Im very proud of you for that. I have heard from the lady. Guess what...She has chosen us to be the renters. I am so glad for this and very happy. I have this smile on my face that I can't seem to rid of. Thanks for sharing with me and have a great week. Oh yes, don't forget to keep smiling my friend.

Hi Wow i so hope you get that place to rent it sounds like it would be a very nice place to rent. One thing i have found in my past is that sometime when we dont get what we want or what we think would be for the best only means that there is something better out there. I know this is hard to think this way being in that situation but you have to hang in there and keep going if you dont get that place to rent because it only means theres something better out there for your family. When will you find out who the landlord picks? Hope you dont have to wait to long its got to be hard to wait to find out.

Hi good I have now found out. She called me last night and told me that she had choosen US to rent it. I have been so happy since then that I have a smile on my face that hasn't left yet. Hopefully we will get to move in this weekend. Thanks for sharing your concerns, Have a great week and keep smiling.

Yes, I do experienced it once. I want to buy the dress that i saw when we are walking in the mall. I want it badly because the stle is unique and pretty. It is so expensive that i really cnt afford to buy that time. What i do is I beg my mom to lend me some money an for return she will just deducted it to my allowance. Finally I bought the dress and it really made me feel good.

I agree with you. Getting what you want is a great feeling. Not only do I want this trailer but we really need it too. I have been looking so hard for something to rent. I would find something and then when I called it would have already been rented. But the lady did call me last night and has choosen us to be the one to rent this trailer. I am so happy at this point.

Personally if it was me, and you are a Praying person, I would be Praying about it and asking God for his will in this situation. It does sound like a nice place and if you can really afford it this would be a Great thing for you as well. Just don't get too upset if someone else gets it, and keep trying. When you find the place you are supposed to have, it will happen.
• United States
19 Oct 09
Hi Krause Thanks for those kind words, and you are very right. If it is meant to be then it will happen. Well I guess it was meant to be. She called us last night and said that she decided that she wanted us to rent her property. I was so excited. I go over there on Tuesday and sign the papers and get the keys. Keep smiling and have a great day.

oh yes I have also Rosepedal64 but mine did not happen, but you have as much chance as any of the others so think positively, I am going to get this mobile home. yes when we were evicted and this English internet friend of my son kept telling us she would pay the rent on a two br.room apt in Antioch Ca for us for 3 months so my son would have time to get a job. I wanted that so badly. the only thing is that even after she had signed an agreement to the manager of the apts. she reneged at the last moment and told the manager to tear up the agreement.This was sickening in that it threw us right out on to the street. Of course now I am in this Retirement center which is still better than being homeless, and my son, my only family,is in a gov. sponsored apt with three other men all of whom are looking for work. so its not what we wanted but at least we are not out on the street.

Oh my gosh Hatley That sounds terrible for her to have done you guys that way. I will also tell you to keep your head high and things will work out for you too.
