Barf Bags, Being Different, & Bloggers

When moving into an RV, there are things you need to consider:. Barf Bags! I learned this last night when I was sick. I am not going into to much detail but vomiting in the sink clogs it up, and with the bathroom on the other end from the bed..Well…. Anyway, today I ordered some of those bags you keep in the car (or, in my case, RV) they have the cup to go over your mouth, are leak proof and tie at the top after each use. I also got some Anti-Nausea meds.

I am blessed in the mornings to be able to see the birds on the wires. This morning, there were about 5-7. What was funny was there were 4 birds facing front, one facing backward, then two more facing front ( approximately). The one facing backward even went around in circles for a bit, while the others watched, probably thinking, “What the heck is wrong with you?”. I like to believe I am That bird. I am Myself, and don’t really care what others think! I have never wanted to be “like everyone else”. God made me Different for a reason!

It’s Coming Along

My place is really starting to take shape. At least the shape, I want.

The Handyman came and fixed the heater, took out the stove, replaced an outlet, and added a bench among other things.

There is still a bit more to go, though.

We are expecting a major storm in the next few days.. well, at least Las Vegas is..so that will put a damper on some organization, but it was really nice tonight.

I got my Jury Dismissal from the doctor and they actually Did fax it, so that’s a relief. I still say they should have told me I needed to pick it up. I might just get a new doctor closer to here. I like mine, but it’s a drive.

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.

“Tomorrow – Only A Day Away”

As the line in the song, Tomorrow from the musical, Annie, “Tomorrow, Tomorrow..I love you, Tomorrow. You’re only a day away!”

Tomorrow, I am getting stuff moved from the shed to the house/RV and tomorrow night I and Suzy will be in our own bed. It’s going to be so nice to have more room and my privacy, again.

Cin and I had pizza tonight as our last meal while living together..not that that was the reason, but it will also help tomorrow so I don’t have to cook.

Getting Excited

I bought some beautiful peel & stick tile, as well as some paint for my RV… Okay, it’s a Fifth Wheel…I’ll let you guess the paint color. While I miss the idea of getting new furniture, etc.. due to the size…I am definitely going to make the place, Mine! It is being delivered tomorrow and the Handyman is coming on Saturday. I am keeping the girls in the hotel until the 30th so I can get what I need out of storage before they enter.

I am still not planning on living that way, forever..But, I have decided to be grateful for this opportunity that God has provided. So many people are Homeless and/or getting rid of their pets when they have to move. I am doing neither of those things. It’s been a trial living with Cin, but, I am still doing it until I get settled in another week, I hope.

My 2nd batch of Christmas Gifts went out today, which actually consisted of two. What with slow shipping possible, I am trying to mail things as I get them ready.

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.

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.

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.
