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!

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.

Another Box Checked

Tossed and turned all night before developing a Migraine. Was up at 3 a.m. praying for guidance and peace.

I told God I am going to say a prayer before every house search or call regarding this move, from now on.

Boarding is set for Monkey and Tara. They will be staying at Animal Inns. They gave me a 15 percent discount if paying by the month but said if I get them earlier, they will refund the unused amount. I pray it doesn’t take a month to find somewhere.

I am going to take Suzy with me to Cin’s which is going to be an adventure.

We had some rain this morning, which was nice and now it is really windy and chilly. I have already started using the heater, at night.

Bible App & Good News

I don’t believe in Fortune Telling (Well, I do, but, not in a positive way) but, I do believe in Gods’ Word.

This morning, my Bible App said ‘You will get good news this week.” and so far, it’s on point.

My Bruno dog has been adopted! He has been with a foster family for a week and they have signed to adopt him! I am so happy! He deserves to be loved and spoiled.

Also,..and this is silly… While going through paperwork, I found a. Refund Check from an old insurance company for $1.04. Yeah..Not much, but I still put it in the bank. After all, it’s $1.04 more than I had before!

Today is only Monday and I hope/pray the Good News keeps coming.. especially with the Background Check.

Solid Sleep & Faith

I seriously slept Solid last night.

What with Whackjob and family gone and selling my house; I feel like I should be stressed about finding a place. But, I truly believe Gods got this! That’s not to say I am not looking. Gonna call Cindy’s Trailer Park Manager again today and/or check into a nearby apartment. I really don’t want to go into a weekly unless I know fer sure, a condo is opening in a few.

Keep the prayers coming, please!

A-Z Challenge-E = Elves

I must say I have some smart I Followers.  Katiegirl06460 got it right for today’s topic….You really should check out her blog.  Like me, it’s pretty much her daily life…

Anyway, before I continue, just a quick update.  Today sucked.  I got a double Migraine so bad I almost thought I would wind up in the hospital.  I thank God for taking the pain away.   

So, today’s Christmas topic is Elves:

Now, I didn’t really feel like doing research on Elves but we all know they help Santa make toys.  I have to wonder what requirements are on the application.. aside from some wood working experience.  I mean, you would have to be honest if you are going to help Santa with his lists of good and bad children, you would have to work well with others, plus, you would have to like animals since you would be taking care of the reindeer.  Plus, some Elves need to be able to cook, sew and clean.  But, Santa does provide room and board, and it seems like a lot of fun, I’ve noticed. 

The first Elves made most toys from wood and they would literally have to keep track of all the children. Now, with technology, the tracking is easier but they need to know how to work with plastics and machines to crank out the same toys over and over. I don’t think that would be as much fun.

I wonder how many children wanted to be an Elf or where Santa found the Little People, he hired. Were a lot of them family members from those in The-Wizard-Of-Oz? and here’s a thought… Could Santa be related to an Elf in the past?

Just some thoughts before I post tomorrow about Christmas and the letter F. Should be Fun,…but.. maybe not.

Freak Wind

I was going to walk to the mailbox today, but, my head said No. I live at the back of the park from the mailboxes, so it is a bit of a distance…Anyway, we had a severe windstorm with sprinkling and I probably would have gotten caught in it.

During this, there was a knock on the door and some people from a local church were passing out Food Boxes. They didn’t care what church we went to, and even asked if we needed prayer. They were from Assemblies-Of-God and the box contained Butter,Sour Cream,Milk,Potatoes,Onions,Carrots,Cheese,Chicken Meatballs and Chicken Legs. While I may not believe the same as them; this is seriously how God wants you to behave and help your community.

Nothing to say about Valentine’s Day. It hasn’t meant much in the last 4-5 years. When your alone, it’s not the same and my memory this year will be my car going away. They are picking her up tomorrow afternoon.

Have a good day, if that’s what you celebrate.

Decisions Made & Gods Timing

I talked to Carvana today who 3- wayed my finance company and will be picking up the car on Sunday. Despite the fact, it is the best decision; I have to admit the tears started and it will be hard to watch them drive her away.

This decision made me think a lot about where I am in life and how I got here. I have been lost and making a lot of bad decisions since my Divorce. Then, I was happy during my 2nd marriage, but his drug habit took precedence. I could go back over. and over on “If I hadnt..If I had never…If I had only..” ..which I thought about, this morning…but that helps nothing. The past is over and I need to keep moving forward.

The car is material. I still have my cats, food, health, and a roof over my head. This is a step in the right direction. I will get over this hurdle and things will get better.

This experience is also very humbling in that I didn’t want to date someone without a car. Now, look where I am?

But dating is the last thing on my mind. God’s got this and everything works in his time.

Helping J Move

Her Realtor plus the new people want her out in two weeks but…

This lady has so much stuff! I worked for a few hours today taking things down, packing boxes, etc… My lower back hurts and I’m tired.

Getting ready for another Yard Sale next week although this one will be a Moving Sale! Almost everything in the house is being sold.

She still has to figure out the cost of a moving company, schedule a flight, and figure out what to do with the dog. He is 18 and has 3 legs.

I am afraid if she takes him to the shelter, he won’t have a chance! She doesn’t want to pay for him to go on the plane. C. says it might be better if they put him down because both she and J. believe he won’t make it in the cold in Idaho. It just kills me to see people give up their animals so easily. They become part of your family. How can you just abandon them or put them to sleep to get out of the responsibility! But, it’s her dog and I can’t stress over that, either.

I pray God gives me peace over the situation with her animals and trust whatever is done works out for the best for all involved.
