The house sold.

I now have 28 days to find a new place to live.

In five days, I've gone from unpacking and settled to not knowing what's next -- but I am used to that.

One thousand and seven days ago, I wrote the first blog post here about checking into a Motel 8, standing in line behind a woman who had two convenience store bags as luggage. The manager of the joint listed strict rules who could be in the room and what would happen if the guidelines were violated. When he started his speech to me, I said I'd heard them and assured that I was a professional, an executive editor just minutes ago. He said it didn't matter and repeated his speech.

As I've written, finding a new place to live in Hayward, buying or renting, is virtually impossible. Consider the house I rented was never on the market and I found out it was up for sale five days ago. The house last sold in August 2020 for $140,000 and it's being sold for $194,500 just 18 months later.

So I'll pack what I had unpacked and move into a room at the Steakhouse Lodge, where I stayed during my first month in town. The staff are no longer staff but my Hayward family. I was invited to Thanksgiving and Christmas parties with them. Some of them have had me over for dinner.

At the same time, while working at the two newspapers where I'm general manager, I'll pursue two paths. The first is finding another rental but that's like looking for Sasquatch. You hear about an opening, you might spot a sign but it's fleeting and untrue.

I'll also seek to buy a home so I'm no longer a victim to the whims of the market. Someone is willing to co-sign for me as I have bad credit given what's happened over the last couple of years. I'll have to buy something small and imperfect and actually saw a Realtor today about a house. 

The house is so small, it could move into me.

Thank you, ladies and germs.

The intent of this blog has never been to be a pity party. Just a journalistic timeline of what's happened to me. I'm no Debbie Downer -- although we have something in common -- neither of us can have children.

I'll find a way, with help from my Hayward family, to move forward. I've been through worse. And while I remain the luckiest man in the world, I'll be honest, I'm tired.

But now back to repacking.

Peace and certainty unto all of you my brothers and sisters.

  1. Rich, Why don't you try to find someone with an extra room or two to move in with. Might even not need rent if you can help them in some other way. Many people would love to have a good roommate for companionship and maybe some help IF they could find someone they trust and like. and,don't even need any money and would not consider renting to a stranger.

    I can't imagine there isn't someone in Hayword (sic) who hasn't lost a spouse or empty nested and wouldn't welcome a good roommate guest. after all you aren't just an ordinary person looking for a place to live. And, you're NOT homeless! Just believe! Mustard Seed.

    Maybe write an article on it in your newspapers which I would think You could do. I'm guessing most people there don't know about your situation and haven't read this Blog. Good luck.

    2. BEST WAY TO GET YOUR EX LOVER BACK REUNITE TOGETHER CONTACT LORD ZULU DIRECTLY ON WHATSAPP +19097814612
      How to get your ex back fast! I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again, and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children pass through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back, after much begging, but all to no avail. and he confirmed that he had made his decision, and he never wanted to see me again. So one evening, as I was coming back from work, I met an old friend of mine who asked my husband .So I explained everything to him, so he told me that the only way I can get my husband back is to visit a priest, because it has really worked for him too. So I never believed in spells, but I had no other choice, than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the priest whom he visited. So the next morning, I sent a letter to the address he gave to me, and the priest assured me that I will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me, and told me everything that I needed to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, by the help of a priest. So, I will advise you out there if you have any problem contact LORD ZULU, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.. or WhatsApp him on +1(909)7814612 OR EMAIL:; ALLSUPREMEPOWERSOLUTIONHOME@GMAIL.COM

  3. My partner (38) recently decided he was no longer happy in a relationship with me. To exit the relationship he started dating this other person who is way older than him (15 years) and specifically told me he was doing it to ensure there is little chance of us working out whatever problems we had. All of this is happening before my very eyes as we are still working out the split of the family home and other details.I have been grieving for a month now because the relationship lasted nearly 11 years. I am trying to be supportive rather than disruptive however I feel she uses my attachment to our 4years daughter. On several occasions he would leave her with me just so he can be with the new girlfriend and be happy . I understand he shouldn't wait for my grief or my permission to move on with a new partner but the fact he does it so soon and so openly is really hurtful to me. I am even considering moving to another city and cutting all ties to her and my daughter just to escape the pain. I recently found out how they were planning to raise our daughter and are making arrangements for this without even consulting me. I am completely lost but since I contacted Dr Peter my Lovers came back to me without any delay. contact Dr peter if you want your lover back in peace and joy contact him via email drpeterspellcaster21@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2348162247974 or Facebook page https://web.facebook.com/drpeterspellcaster22 blogspot: https://drpeterspellcaster22.blogspot.com/
