All signs point to GET OUT!!!!!

-Horrible grouchy lady at the trailer park (we live in a trailer if you have never heard me talk about it before)has decided if I don't give her a reason to threaten eviction she will make one up. This time, the yard is too messy. Now people, DH is the first one to give me a heads up if the yard looks bad, and even he says it is fine.

-Other grouchy rental trailer lady told me I have to move my trailer or sell it because I have had too many people move in and out this year. Once again pulling rules from her butt because she hates us. Is there a club? Do they have shirts?

-By some crazy mix up the utility company credited one of my other accounts and the gas was shut off because of non-payment at our little rental house. Also an all things against us situation because the mailman has decided to stop delivering mail to that address because it is empty even though I have told them to keep delivering like 100x's... So I never got the disconnect notice.

-I got a call at the warehouse the other day, a person saying they were inquiring about a job listing, when I told them what we had open they said no they saw an ad for DH's job title. Now, it could just be a mix up... But DH is pretty upset and thinking they are offering his job up in preparation to fire him. Feeling that way about your job is no good even if you are wrong.

-Some lovely person called the police on DH the other day while he was waiting for me at the school saying he looked suspicious (code, he looks like a ME man).

-We went to the rental trailer to clean up, etc. and found that they have shut the water off. Why, because they like us, yeah sure....

-No one in the "community" here has even called us to wonder where we are, wish us happy Ramadan, whatever. I think they are probably spreading rumors about us converting or something by now.

I'm sure there are a few I am missing, but enough... I get it, now could He send DH the memo too?????

Oh my God!!! What a community!
When I was living in Virginia, some "good" neighbors said that I damaged their cars with my car’s doors. I was the only foreign in the building. So, I called Geico that was my car insurance company and I explained the case to someone who transferred the call to Geico's lawyer. The lawyer advised me to move out of the state, because she got afraid of my security.
Please take care! We never know what is in somebody's mind!

what a life. You must be made of saber, mashaAllah. I have been following your blog for a while, but perhaps not long enough, so may I ask why you're living in a trailer?

I'll make du'a for you. Have you considered calling Ty?

Imaan, we are living in a trailer because it is the house we could afford w/o interest. It is big, 2000 square feet and we have a nice yard too... So it's not really like what might come to your mind when I say trailer. Just one ? What is Ty?

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sister,

May Allah Most High, make it easier for you and your family, and reward you for you patience. Ameen.

I wish I could say more.. but I know there is nothing better than du'a :)

Asalamalaykom EW,

My hub announced one afternoon that maybe a trailer could work for us. I was adamant: NO WAY. Your posting of the hardship at the trailer park only confirms that my suspicions were right.

And, ya, girl GET OUT :)

Ok, I understand. Trailer for me is one step - kitchen - one step - livingroom - one step up - bedroom. Would be interesting with some pictures! I realize american ways of living is different than swedish (naturally). And surely square feet must be a meassurent I'm not yet familiar with. I myself live on 78 m2 with my husband and 3 children, so... 2000?!

And, "Ty" is Ty of Extreme Home Makeover, something I thought all americans were familiar with he he.

Best wishes //Imaan

I'm sorry to hear the culture of fear fostered by the current administration has touched you in that personal way. When running a prison, it's easiest to get the prisoners to look after one another. I look forward to the day when this mentality is no longer pervasive. Bet y'all do, too.
