Bad To Good

Friday was bad and Friday night was worse. Developed a stress headache from fighting for my medication which turned into a Migraine. Full Blown, Nausea..the works! Yesterday morning I called to get medicine delivered only to be told they don’t deliver on weekends. Called everyone I could think of. Finally, my Handyman (Lin) came through. What A Blessing! Needless to say, I took a whole pill ( I am supposed to take half when a headache starts) and woke up about four hours later feeling normal again. I am Definitely calling tomorrow to get a new doctor!

I woke up to some packages at my door and in my mailbox! The first was from my Reddit Secret Santa! It’s the Final One.. which is sad..but a different group on Reddit is trying to get another one started by next year. Anyway, I got this from my Wishlist!

Bloody, Horror themed bottom sheet! I love it! I know I will be the only one that sees it on the bed, and it’s to cold right now for sheets (sleeping on a comforter) but it totally fits my house theme.

The 2nd gift was a Birthday present from TXFriend (some of you know her by another name, here)..she got me a box full of snacks like Red Hot Candy Canes and Razzles plus a book she’s read and recommended.

Anyway, today is a new day and I am going to visit Cin!

A neighbor knocked on the door a while ago and took me to get some free cat food so I picked up a bag for Cin, too. Gotta pass the Blessings.

I also listened to an audio sermon about Christmas. I hope to start attending church again, soon.

To those of you going on trips this week, Merry Christmas! To the rest of you, I’ll still be here blogging away.

I’m Here

In my new place, that is. I won’t show you the boxes outside I need to go through but the inside is at least functional.

My muscles ache and I have blisters on my feet so I am planning to play some games and go to bed. Tomorrow I will start putting things away before and after we pick up Monkey and Tara.

As you can tell, there is still a lot more to paint, but I have lots of time.

I am extremely grateful to Cin for letting Suzy and I stay, but really glad it’s over.

Situation Moral

Prayers continuing please as this should be over in a few more days.

The Handyman finished most of what he is doing and will come back in a few weeks for the rest of it. We are going to paint one wall, tomorrow. I can do the rest after my family gets settled. I am hoping to get everything.. well not everything..out of storage and moved into the house on Friday and to pick up the cats on Saturday. Just praying I have access to the remaining funds in time.

This morning was bad. Suzy spent a day and a night under the sofa and I finally got her out. Then, she immediately pee’d on the bed. I got dressed and ready to do the laundry when Cin had a yelling fit about cleaning the house and wanting me to clean under the bed/table and needing help, etc.. I am not saying I was an Angel in all this, but I did talk to her later and said I would really appreciate if she would just talk civil and not yell at me, but she goes, “Oh, you think that was yelling? You haven’t heard me yell.”

Later, when we went to my place to prepare the wall for paint, I asked Cin to do the top and I would do the bottom, she immediately started doing things her way. That’s when I decided I just want to finish most of it on my own time, after I get moved in.

I don’t want to speak up and get snapped at especially when we can’t leave yet.

I think the moral from this situation is:. Live with a friend Only as last resort no matter how close you are.

Sharing Saturday

Good Afternoon,

This is the part of my blog where I Share what I have learned during the week and you join in with your comments. You can Share about anything at all!

Anyway, this week, I have learned that I am stronger than I thought. Both independent wise and physically. I have been making some major decisions lately which is financially responsible and look what Cin and I did, today!

That used to be the table and bench set.

One of the neighbors has offered to help on a few things, but I am proud of what we have accomplished, so far!

Nervous And Excited

I told my Sis (the one I still talk to) and Bro about my move. My Sis had a point. I have to be happy!

I am a bit nervous because I am not sure if this will make me happy. But, I will definitely be happy to be back on my own with my Fur-Children. Plus, I am getting excited at the things I can do in the future. Like, I can get a Shed and turn it into an office. Plus, I can start saving again for a car! I really want a Smart Car, again..or a Volkswagen.. something small.

I have made bad decisions in the past, but I am proud of my decisions now. I don’t have debt and I am doing everything on my own.

Sometimes I get worried about family and others opinions, but I live my life for Me, not them. That’s something I have to remember!

I’m Grateful to have found this RV, I have purchased. God is answering my prayers.

Before Thanksgiving

It’s Official! I did the walk-through and my trailer will be delivered on Friday!

I have been sort of numb since yesterday. I’m still praying I did the right thing. I believe I did. If you think about it, it is what I was originally considering. I can save some money and maybe even get a car before I try again. You never know, the Market can turn around, but right now, everything was out of my reach.. until this. God answers prayers in mysterious ways.

I am totally looking forward to getting my girls and my privacy back. And, I am looking forward to sleeping on my own mattress, again. Most of you have probably shared a place with others before, so you know how difficult it is. Plus, where else can I live with Space Rent less than $400 and no pet deposit?

I am considering getting a Shed in order to get all my stuff out of storage soon, too. And maybe another Catio. But it’s getting cooler, and the cats don’t like it outside when it’s cold.

The picture and description at the top is the one I purchased. I will take and share some pictures of the inside, once I get it set up. I will tell you, it has a full bath with closet and a Loft type bed.

Per the title, I will probably have my babies back and be in my Thanksgiving!

Made A Major Decision/Purchase

Quick review for those that are new:

I lived in a mobile home park for the last 3 years and the rent climbed until it was unaffordable. I sold my mobile home and put money in the bank with the intention of using it as a down payment on a condo or townhouse for which I am FHA approved. In the meantime, I moved in with my friend C. and my cat, putting my stuff in storage and my other two cats in a Pet Hotel.

Next week will be a month and Nothing is available! C.and I are both losing patience and I want my babies back so…

I found and purchased a 25 foot Trailer. I will soon be able to get my babies back. I will need to get a Handyman to do a couple things, though. There is a Lot available here and the Space Rent is only $378 a month. Plus, my Trailer Lot # will be the exact same as C’s. Just a different street name. How cool is that?!

The Cons of this are;.

I may need to Downsize some more.

I will probably need a shed.

It’s not exactly larger, like I wanted.

There really wasn’t another option.

Pro’s:

Space Rent is definitely affordable.

I can save for a car and/or a bigger place in the future.

It has a Bathtub

My little family and I will be back together!

I will be close to Cin, but, we won’t be in each other’s space.

I’m sure I can think of more Pro’s. I’m just a bit nervous at the moment. But, as usual, I have Faith. It doesn’t look like the housing market will turn any time soon, so, this is the best choice, at present. Plus, in a few more years, I will see where I am at, financially.

I should add that I am Grateful to get my family and my privacy back, soon.

Good & Bad

Let’s start with the Bad and get it over with:

The Manager still doesn’t have access to the places yet and it probably won’t be before Thanksgiving.

I have to take Suzy in for her Vaccines today and get her in the Hotel with her sisters! She is peeing all over, and we can’t do this, anymore! At least by doing this, it will help the stress with Cindy and me…but….

Good News:

Well, not really…But… I have to find positivity, somewhere.

We went to Macaroni Grill the other night and it was delicious! There is only one here in Vegas.. which is a bummer because it’s one of my favorite restaurants. Cindy didn’t like anything there though. Some people have more of a refined pallet, then others.

Most of my Christmas Shopping is done and some is already mailed. They say to mail early but the gifts I sent were through Amazon.

My Bible Study group is planning a Brunch and gift exchange which will be fun. We are going to play the Exchange Game and I got a really cool wooden notebook and pen set to give. Hey, everyone likes to write!

I am still keeping my options open with low income housing or even an apartment, at this point. Please Keep Praying?

Today & Whose Priorities?

Today was a double Migraine Day which sucked. I am really trying not to stress but am praying a place comes open here, soon.

Suzy has been acting weird and I am afraid she might be peeing in places she shouldn’t be. I seriously hope I am wrong.

This morning, C. and I went to Three Square and worked on the Backpack Program. C. tied the bags and I helped stock. It was definitely going exercise and we filled over 1400 bags in 2 hours!

Now, to the Priority, issue.

Last night I went with C. to her Flute Rehearsal, but I stayed in the other room because I was planning on going to the actual concert, tomorrow. H. was going to pick me up and we were all going to dinner, afterwards. However, tomorrow is also our Zoom Bible Study from 10-12, and in order to attend the concert, I would have to skip Bible Study to get some errands done. Well, H. and L. did not like that. They feel, I should prioritize Bible Study, and after explaining that I cannot do both, H. said she would prefer I attend Bible Study instead of the concert. I did ask which she would prefer, and while I know this is my decision, I don’t think she is right, on this. But, that’s how it is going to be, unless plans change. I just regret not watching the actual rehearsal now.

Getting Saved, Etc..

My friend over at PurpleSlobInRecovery has been sharing a lot about her Christian Walk, and has requested I share my Testimony.

I was raised as a Catholic and was Baptized as a baby, but, that is not the same as a accepting Christ as my personal Savior! I have always loved to read and my mother kept giving me books. The books were about children in my age group…I was 13 at the time… and I soon discovered they all had the same ending. “Then, I discovered Christ as my Savior, blah.. blah.. blah.” It got to where I would read the last page first, due to the predictability. So, one day, I threw the book across the room and said, “Okay, God, Change Me!”. Mind you, I was 13! The fireworks or lightening I expected didn’t happen, so I was like “Okay, Whatever”. But, the next morning, it was like my world changed! I was seeing clearer and even smelling the flowers! More aware and grateful for the things God put around me.

PurpleSlob is adding something she is grateful for, in her daily Posts until Thanksgiving, so I have decided to try to do the same. I will try to add one thing at the end.

In other news- I was really sick last night and this morning, but am doing better. I hate being sick at other people’s places, but technically, I don’t have my own place, so…

In Good News- Cin saw a bunch of furniture by the Dumpster, so we are really hoping/praying the neighbors are moving soon so I can get my own place. Even small, it can’t be much smaller than the space I have here, plus, I can get my babies, back.

*While I know I complain a bit, I am grateful to Cindy for taking me in. I am sure it was hard to open her house to another person and their cat. That is a sign of a true friend, and I am thankful that God put her in my life.
