First off, were your ears burning? If so, it’s because I was talking about ya’ll today. Good stuff, I promise! My mother in law was asking who all those people were who donated to my Gofundme fund, and I told her fellow bloggers and authors mainly. She was just astounded that this was coming from people who didn’t even “know me”. So I was bragging on y’all and the encouragement, and all the support (emotional and financial) you’ve given me throughout this. I am eternally grateful, y’all rawk and are awesome so give yourselves hugs and pats on the backs. You deserve them and more. I appreciate all the kind words and help you’ve given to me.
Secondly, I’ve taken another step toward normalcy… I get the keys to my new home on Thursday. YAY! No more sleeping on my mom’s futon, maybe my back will straighten up and maybe I will be able to feel my big toe again 😛 Someone said it’s Sciatic Nerve issues causing my leg pain…
Whatever it is, I hope it goes away when I get back into my own bed. It will be weird moving into a place without hubby… and my son’s birthday is the 16th. It will be rough for him, and we don’t have a lot of money to get much but I’ll do my best to keep things positive for him.
The Penske truck I rented broke down outside of Atlanta, I’m super grateful that I did find someone else to drive it and that it wasn’t me sitting there at midnight on the side of the road waiting an hour for someone to come out. I’m super grateful that it wasn’t me driving a limping defective truck up to Atlanta and through the rough streets to the repair center. They are SUPPOSED to be refunding some money, but it’s been a few weeks and we’ve heard nothing yet. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
At least I’m home with my relatives, I’ve been keeping busy and entertained. Going to the Eagles with my aunt and uncle to watch them do Karaoke, music, however is not my friend right now. Every song that was sung was a sappy love song, something hubby sang, or broken heart songs or the like and I spent the first 30 minutes crying or fighting tears until my uncle got up and sang: Sweet Transvestite from The Rocky Horror Picture show. I was laughing so hard! It was amazing, wrong, and seemed so out of character for him, but it was awesome and it was soo worth a few tears.
I’m shooting pool with my cousin and his wife and going to bingo with my aunt. I’ve had dinner with my sister in law and am enjoying getting to know her. She’s pretty great and cool, very nice and funny. 🙂 I like her a lot. I’m getting to see my old friends and made a road trip to Florida with her, but then on the way back her car went up. Seems like if someone tries to help me, they get sucked into the black hole of my screwed up situation.
I’ve got 2 congressmen working on getting documents I need from China, the consulate refused to get me the police report and the medical exam that was performed. I’m working with Bill Nelson’s office in Florida to try and get that, and they are trying to help me with the workman’s comp claim. It is life changing money for me right now and I’m sorry but something STINKS about this whole situation, and the congressman’s aide agrees with me.
I had a job interview last week, drug test and background check this week and possibly will be starting training the 17th. So things are looking up, but the upcoming holidays will be emotional ones. October … my son’s birthday, November is Thanksgiving, December is hubby’s birthday and then of course Christmas and the New Year, then Valentines day and my birthday. So continued prayers and positive thoughts will be needed for this stretch.
I hope to return to writing and getting into a routine again, looking forward to my own space and some privacy. I want to get some exercise and get healthier. Anyway that’s it for now.
Thank you all for the support
