Do I dare dream... : )

Monday, June 29, 2009

Hi again. It's been awhile, and wanted to update you a bit. It has been a journey into the most chaotic crap I've ever been through.

I got all the info into the CPA... with one follow-up appt, a week later. I've been so numb, I don't even recall if I have celebrated that goal yet. (5 full years, and amended one year)

So, since my husbands been out of work, and no pending contract, we broke our Lease Purchase agreement on the house we're in and have to walk away from 23k. We don't even get back our $1,000 deposit. Does anyone have a clue how hard it is to find a place to live, to move your family to, when you have NO money, no job, no down payment, no rent? And, just trying to keep on your utilities? It sucks.

We were told to be out by July 1st.

I know that so many other people are going thru the same thing... and my heart goes out to them because it's difficult and scary. I have wanted to sit in the middle of my living room floor and just cry. A part of me wants to feel defeated... martyred and dance a bit with self-pity. I go there for a few minutes and then I remind myself to get up, keep moving and get things done.

So, I've been to Walmart at 11pm or later, picking up boxes... (free) and then back again at 6am, when the stockers get off. We have a few liquor stores that stash boxes in their front windows and I gather them up quickly. I just remind myself to keep moving. I have been packing, keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for a miracle.

I have two days until I'm suppose to be out of here... lock, stock & barrel, and pets.[s]

I don't have a place yet... (I have a place I would love to go to, that's empty).

And, Rod got a phenomenal call today for a possible year contract, starting July 6th.

I guess my reason for sharing such a vulnerable part of my life, is asking for your prayers. Just a 5 second cyber hug of good wishes & blessings will be received with JOY in my heart. I'm just exhausted with all this upheaval and need a bit of help, and that's why I'm asking. And, please keep your fingers crossed for us and I will update you. My DH is to get his confirmation call tomorrow.

It seems I've been traveling a road full of pot-holes for so long, do I dare dream a more smooth and graceful path? I sure hope so!

Keeping my fingers, toes and eyes crossed! emoticon
