The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Right Jab, Left Hook

Yesterday, I finally took my car to the shop. I couldn't take it anymore. My car's tires were bald, misshapen, and out of alignment. The vibration was enough to liquefy internal organs. Since I've sold most of mine over the last few years, I can't really spare the ones I have left.

Four tires and an alignment later, the car rides much smoother, but it knocked a crap load of money out of our checking account.

This morning I nearly stroked out when I opened our credit card bill. And, it didn't include the range we charged to it last weekend. Ouch.

If my wife hadn't gotten a job a couple months ago, we'd have been down for the count. As it is, I'm wondering if I'll need a second job pretty soon.
