Saturday Sharing

This is the part of my Blog where I share things I have learned or relearned during the week and everyone participates by sharing what they learned, in the comments.

This week, I’ve learned that I can accomplish things I never thought I could before. I’ve also learned to continue focusing on Prayer and I will be blessed.

My original Handyman (Lyn) checked out my place today and is going to start working on Monday. He thinks it won’t take to long. My problem now is finances. I am considering a Loan but don’t know where to go. Dollar Loan Center and most others like it are way to high on Interest. Any suggestions?

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.

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?

Sharing Saturday

Hey, It’s Saturday! This is the part of my Blog where we Share what we have learned and relearned during the week. I Share here and everyone else Shares through comments. The class participation here, is a bit low.

This week for me has been a bit full of minor annoyances. I guess I am learning patience and how to react in certain situations. I am also relearning that I can’t do everything and while I don’t appreciate others telling me My Priorities; sometimes it’s best to go along with the group.

While not fitting in either category, I am continuing in Faith and Hope that something will open here, very soon.

*Something has changed in Suzy. I have to physically put her in the litter box, periodically . After she goes, she leaps on the bed so she doesn’t get attacked by Miss Kitty. She did a lot better when she first got here!

Midnight Wednesday & Possibilities

I believe this is technically my Tuesday Post since I was exhausted last night. I couldn’t keep my eyes open after 8.

I talked to the Manager, yesterday (let’s call her Mgr… Yeah, I know. My creativity is over the top!) and she told me TWO rentals are coming up, soon. So, I will get a choice! She also reminded me that they are small and old… BUT….I DON’T CARE! It would be affordable and I can get my babies out of the Pet Hotel and have them with me.

Small, is here!

Plus, it would be My Own!

Remember I told you about being scratched by Miss Kitty? My Suzy spent almost two days under Cin’s bed after that until I got her out. Now, she is back with me.

We believe she does eat and go potty, at night, but even she is tired of feeling unwelcome. Not saying we are Unwelcome. But, the crazy rules and ways Cin lives, is getting old.

I will probably do another Post later today, as it is Tara’s Birthday. I might just share a bit about how I came to be blessed with her. She is 10 Years Old, today!

Grateful? I am so grateful for the future possiblity! I have been praying, trusting, and believing. I am so grateful God does what he promises and listens to our prayers! He knows my future and I continue with continued prayers and belief in him while waiting for it to come true!

Keep praying this happens really soon, please!

Oh Yeah, Life Goes On

“Long after the thrill of livin is gone”. But, it’s not the thrill of Livin that’s gone; it’s the thrill of living here. Not that I was thrilled about it in the first place.

Miss Kitty attacked me the other night. She may have been going after Suzy but I had just fallen asleep and she scratched my inner thigh causing blood to go everywhere.

She also chased Suzy clear into the other end of the sofa and I had to open it for her to get out. Since then, Suzy has been under Cin’s bed and doesn’t want to come out.

I am tired of sleeping on this table bed and am not happy with some of the rigid rules Cin has.

I am seriously considering an apartment even if it does have a 12 month Lease, if nothing opens here, soon.

Had a Migraine this morning. But got through the weekend without one. I would say “Oh well, it’s only the first of the week” but it’s also a Monday. Of course, I am sure the Time Change messed me up, too. I hate it and wish we all had the same time.

Sorry this Post was whiny. Actually, No, I am not. I guess I can be Sorry, I didn’t warn you, though.

I am grateful, I was/am able to afford Storage and to put my other two Fur-Children in a Pet Hotel.

I hold on to my belief that something will open up, soon.

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.

Blah, Etc..p

I was supposed to go to a concert tonight with my church group, as, one of the girls plays the Flute, but I am feeling a bit Blah, so I didn’t go.

The main thing I did was take a shower and thankfully the water heater was fixed so now it’s lukewarm verses freezing. Yep, Thankful for the little things.

Cin is insisting on not flushing t/p despite it being disgusting, and there is nothing I can say or do about it.

Can’t wait to get out of here in hopefully a few more weeks.

Adapting

Living alone, you have your own ways. When you live with someone else, it can be hard to Adapt to the the ways of others. Cin is 8 years older then I, yet she comes off quite mother ish which can get annoying.. Examples:

She doesn’t like to use hot water unless she has to (small water tank)

She would prefer you put t/p in a bucket after each use verses flushing the toilet.

There are certain ways of doing things…etc..

She can yell at her cat for going after Suzy but I am wrong to comment or reprimand her, myself. That’s when Cin starts defending her.

Also, there is No privacy.

At least tomorrow Cin is leaving for a few hours. I am going to wash my hair and maybe do some laundry..or just kick it in a quiet trailer and pretend it’s my own. I can handle small if it’s me and my babies. At least until my Realtor finds something for us.

I have looked into a Weekly with Suzy but hate to spend much more money when I am trying to save.

I I can only pray something opens soon… maybe even sooner than the Manager expects. I am also looking into low-cost apartments but

1. There aren’t to many that will take 3 cats.

2. There are very few in my price range

3. Very few offer a 6 month lease. Most want a year.

Fur-Children Don’t Understand

I wish I could explain to my Fur-Children what’s going on! Tara was mad at me last night for taking Suzy away.

I can’t say I blame her. She and Suzy play constantly.

Suzy is also having a time, adjusting. Cin’s cat greeted her with hisses and growls and I guess they did that all night. Suzy is so confused, she even hisses and yells at the outside cats, as well as her own reflection! She doesn’t know these two cats we put her with and it’s going to take time.

In possible good news, Cin’s Manager is dropping hints of something opening in her park in the near future. It will be small, but my babies could come back with me and we would have our own place until a Condo or Townhouse becomes available. I will keep you updated. I don’t want to mention it again, without facts, and jinx it.

I have started to analyze my feelings about this move and I would so love to be able to tell my sister and brother I did it and am in my own Condo or Townhouse. I know my family sees me as the Black Sheep and Family Fuck-Up. They still see me as a child who makes bad decisions. I am doing this move for me and to prove that they are wrong! I would love for them to be proud of me! I said Sister.. Singular..only because I don’t talk to one, but I am sure she will hear the news from the other.

I sincerely pray that God will make this dream come true!
