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.
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.
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.
The last few days have been quiet. Being sick does that.
But today I was feeling better and went on my walk. Talked to a neighbor and heard some wonderful news! I only hope it’s True! Our Park Manager has been demoted to Assistant Manager! Now, we just hope it will make a difference.
My Bible App keeps saying Good News will come this week, and I really hope it does.
I know tomorrow is the Jeff Dunham Show live on Rushtix. It is going to be awesome to watch from home. He has a new character he is introducing, too.
Yesterday, I visited the neighbors who got another new cat. Now, they have 2 cats and a bird. Bad Idea. They asked my opinion and after observing one of the cats obsessing over the bird..well… Cin would love to have a bird but, she would be in the same situation in an even smaller area. I had that situation once and wound up giving the bird to my mother.
The Mortgage Girl took a few days off to celebrate her Birthday, but, I have asked her to do a Hard Pull on my credit, tomorrow to see where I am at. It’s hard to be patient when there is literally nothing you can do to change the situation.
Cin did not get the Love Seat because B. wasn’t able to pick it up in time. I mean, it was Free! The people weren’t going to hold it, forever. It was first come, first served. Needless to say, someone else’s behind is probably sitting on it right now! Next time, I find one that might work, I will see if I can get the neighbors to help me bring it here for B. to pick up. This is the same guy who painted my house so you know he isn’t the most dependable on timing.
Ame and Ken had their cat put down, this morning. They gave me her cat food.
She was 20 years old.
It’s sad, but:
The neighbors next to them came over and asked if they wanted their bird. So now Ame and Ken..and Jer since he lives there.. have a green parakeet. We’ve determined it’s a girl! The neighbors that originally had kept putting her cage on the porch during the day and taking her in at night. It’s to hot here, for that! I guess Ame went and talked to it, which is why the neighbors offered it to her, stating they can’t keep it because they have a baby. There was a Cheeto at the bottom of the cage so.
At least, this little bird will get a good home, and they won’t be getting a rebound cat, just yet. They need time to grieve.
I cleaned the bathroom, today. You know it was bad when not only do you not know if the pipe is purple or gray, but, you find a tube of lotion which is empty that you have never heard of or use.
Had Linner (Lunch/Dinner) with the neighbors on Saturday, which was interesting. Let’s call them Ame and Ken.. Anyway, they seem like nice people but..Ame admitted she has some mental issues and Ken is frying his brain with drugs. They probably both are. They live with his father, Jer, who has been gone for a month and returned, yesterday. Anyway, Linner was okay and Ame even took me to Pinkbox Donuts after, for dessert. The donuts are good and very, unique. What was weird about visiting, though is..they bought a lot of J’s furniture from her yard sale. So, I remembered the sofa I sat on, and the tables I ate at. Weird in a different environment.
Today, Cin took me to the bank before driving around, a bit. It is cool to see the housing options around here, despite the fact, I can’t really look, yet.
Yesterday, my neighbor came by, along with his Cousin. His Cousin is very interested in purchasing my place (which isn’t even up for Sale, yet!). That knowledge has given me serious Motivation.
I started the Pre-qualification Process with a mortgage company through Zillow, while the house was being painted on the outside this morning – I scrubbed like a crazy person on some of the cabinets and counters. I did not do the entire kitchen at once, for various reasons, and… although, this might sound silly to some…I packed a box which includes Pumas’ Ashes. I have written Fragile, Important and Puma on the box for when it is actually moved. But, I know I will not be having her Ashes turned into anything until I get settled in my next place…. I haven’t given up the RV idea, if I could find an affordable one, I really like. It’s funny, but even being smaller than here..some of those places feel huge!
Anyway, tomorrow should be the final day of painting the house, plus, it’s another early morning so I am going to call it an early night.
Well, I somehow forgot to post, yesterday since it was a draft so I posted it today; which means tomorrow might be todays Post…Have I lost you, yet?..But actually this is todays Post and I will still Post something tomorrow.
I took a nap today! That was my big excitement. Hey, when your my age, a nap is wonderful..especially when it isn’t induced by pain medication.
The other excitement was hearing a pounding on my door, I believe, and nobody being there. Even had a neighbor check it out for me.
J. gave me her Washer and Dryer and surprisingly, they will fit! The only issue is what to do with this
A while back when I really wanted to move, I started packing. Although, plans have changed a bit and I may not move for a while, I am not going to unpack..just in case. So, I will need to find some room for those boxes in here
As you can see, that might be a bit difficult.
The box with the bear will go back in the middle room with the washer/dryer. The bear is Susys’ Love Bear and I can’t stand watching her hump it in my bedroom/kitchen area. I told you she wasn’t as innocent as she looks.
