My attorney just called. My claim is settled. Words cannot describe the relief I feel. He may have the papers by the time I get out of class tomorrow, and he may be able to get them finalized since the arbitrator is still going to be in town. After class I have to drop by and see if everything is in place. It feels like 50 lbs was lifted from each shoulder.
My only concern is if I get the money before my roof gets done. The funds have already been ok'd, but I don't know if this counts. I would still rather get the loan and pay the house off since its at a higher interest rate. I won't be rich, but at least I won't have to worry about making house payments for the next 5 years. Holy COW! Its hard for me to comprehend right now. If the roof thing doesn't go through, its going to take almost all that I get after attorney's fees to get the roof done, and that would really suck. I am just going to think positive thoughts.
The speech is over with. It went good. I got compliments after class by a few of the people. That made me feel better. Everyone can tell how nervous I am. I don't have the grade on it yet, but I read over the instructors evaluation and it was all good. All the classmates evaluate us too on strong points and what we need to work on. I saw one of mine laying on the desk and it said I need to work on eye contact. Thats a valid point, but these were manuscript form and everyone had a hard time with that since she wanted it at close to word for word as possible.
Life is good. Thanks for all the prayers. I am almost speechless.
God Bless. *sigh*
