“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.

Future Blessing

Praise God! One of the girls from my Bible Study Group asked her neighbors if they can help me move on Friday and they said Yes! Most of my stuff is coming in on Friday and I will be getting the cats on Saturday, , I hope.

Cin and I painted a bit, today. I really want to do more by myself but can’t tell her that. Here are some progress pics:

I also took some pics the other day of some of Las Vegas, so…

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.

Move Done

No Saturday Sharing today, but my move is Done!

The moving company I used to load and unload (Jackie’s Movers were okay, but I won’t use them again. They arrived on time, were friendly and the price was reasonable but for being “Professional”, I don’t think they packed the truck correctly and they couldn’t fit my washer/dryer in it. I had to make a quick decision and sell it to my Buyer for a lot less than I should have!

It’s only been a night but I seriously can’t live here, long.

The bed is hard, Cin had ants in the microwave so she sprays ant spray all over, she got an attitude today… I don’t want this situation to ruin our friendship.

Please, Please Pray something opens here, soon!

Tomorrow, we are going back to the house to clean and pass the keys to the new people!

At Cin’s

I am here! It’s been a day. It was hard dropping off Tara and Monkey, then we paid for Storage. Then I had to go home with a double header Migraine and get sleep and meds without vomiting. After which, Ame came over and helped put the mattress in the protector, take the cat tree apart and a few other things. Cin came back and here we are.

Upon arrival, the power was out in the neighborhood, and I had to close Suzy in the bathroom so we could get all my stuff inside. We missed a few things, but there is always tomorrow.

Suzy is really happy to see me and it is going to be quite interesting sleeping in a practically single bed with her.

Suzy Leaves Today

My Suzy is going to her Aunt Cin’s today. I know it’s early but I don’t want to many major changes to fast for the cats sake, plus I need to use the big box she lays in. Also, Cin lives 30-45 minutes away so it gets a little difficult driving back and forth constantly, she needs a few days break. She will be with Suzy and her cats getting them acclimated.

I must add, I am a bit nervous about staying at Cin’s and hope it doesn’t last long. She lives in a small, Fifth Wheel Trailer and I will be sleeping on the table bed. Most of my stuff with be on the bed, also. She keeps the television on all day for background noise, and if I have a Migraine, there is nowhere to go! I did order some Earmuffs but they aren’t noise cancelling since I will need to be able to sleep in them.

I really wish and pray something opens soon, whether it’s a small Trailer like Cin’s or a Studio Apartment where I can be alone. I also don’t want to keep Tara and Monkey in the Pet Hotel to long, despite how nice it is. It costs as much per week as Siegel Suites!

I am thinking of getting a small, Pumpkin at the store today and making Pumpkin Seeds before going to Cin’s. She doesn’t like them so they would be all for me!

Weather, Observations, & Memory

It’s a majorly, windy day here in Las Vegas and the wind is cold! Please pray it isn’t windy or rainy on Saturday, when I actually move!

Speaking of moving, I love watching other people move. I don’t even mind helping. Seeing what people own gives you a glimpse of their lives. The neighbors were back, yesterday, and moving out more stuff. Leather Sofas, a Dresser, a large Television Set and plenty of toys for their two little ones. These are the neighbors across the way, that I thought were already gone.

I remember years ago, I helped my apartment neighbor move. She was a major Hoarder and had boxes and boxes of things never opened; as well as brand new clothes that would never fit her size. I found a really pretty dress that was my size and I took it. Yes, it was stealing. But, in my defense, she wasn’t paying me and when I said she could keep a few things at my place, she put so much in, my cats and I literally had a pathway and it was a fire hazard. I had to get a friend to take all her crap to her parents place which was a half hour or 45 minute drive, to get it to her! I did buy a Rocking Chair from her, though..and have since asked and received Gods’ Forgiveness for that theft.

Quiet Paper Work Day

It was quiet so I spent time sorting paperwork.

That is, until I got frustrated and said Screw It! Packing the rest in a box and vowing to get a Shredder in the future.

Speaking of boxes, I think mine are multiplying by themselves.

I counted 52, but I am sure I missed a few, and I still have the kitchen and clothes to pack! My Goodwill bag is also filling up, which is a plus, but, damn..where does all this stuff come from? I am thinking if I can put some smaller boxes in some bigger ones, it will at least bring the total down.

The one thing I will miss when I move is seeing The Stratosphere out my kitchen window at night, so, I took some pictures.

Enjoy!

It’s the red light above one of the houses. One of the neighbors have lights up which the flash bounced off, on the far left.

People Disappear So Quickly Here, Etc…

My neighbor across the way, is moving. Apparently, his mother has a Studio she is going to rent them until they find a place. I also think my next door neighbor is moving. They don’t speak English, but, I have noticed someone in a white truck take a mattress, and today, they (neighbors) waved at me from same truck while moving a Nightstand and Dresser. I have also noticed a bug UPS box, I think, in the side window. I think a lot of people have had enough of the management with rules that rarely get enforced and space rent being raised over and over. I feel sorry for the new people coming in, but, they’ll find out on their own.

Finally saw a Good Realtor today. She explained more about how FHA works and why I am not qualified for some of the places I like. Nothing is open in my price range at the moment but they have added me to their Portal and they get Pocket Listings (Private Listings that don’t hit the MLS) so, they will keep me updated. I finally feel comfortable with a Realtor!

Since we were in Green Valley today; we checked out Green Valley Ranch Casino. It’s nice, but it’s one of the first casinos I entered that reeks of the smell of Pot. We also tried Pizza Rock for lunch. The food was good, but, they only had one size pizza available, and the prices were high. Needless to say, I can live peacefully without returning there.

Migraines, Moving & Holidays

It’s been a bad start of the month with Migraines. Between the Flu Shot, Cat Stress and a Dirty Heater Vent.

Yesterday was a Double! But no more side effects from the Flu Shot, I am using extra blankets, and no reason to stress over the cat situation. I have booked rooms (Kitty Cottages) at a Pet Hotel called, Animal Inns. They have great reviews and take all types of animals! I recommend checking out the website. Plus, Monkey and Tara will be able to see each other and have playtime together. Monkey isn’t much for sharing a room though, so I couldn’t book them, together. I am looking at this as Vacation Time for the animals!

Plans have changed a bit. Suzy is going to Cin’s a few days, prior. Monkey and Tara go to the hotel on Friday, and Saturday, the big move takes place. This is in two weeks.

Still debating on movers or help from workers in front of Home Depot, etc.. Can anyone in Las Vegas recommend reasonable local movers?

I can’t finish this without observing what today is:

Columbus Day

and now,

Indigenous Day

Any parades scheduled to celebrate either? Or, is it just another whole group of people that can be happy their group will be acknowledged per the Calendar?
