Moving Day
Well, it has finally happened. After months and months of struggling and trying desperately to make ends meets, the ends have frayed beyond recognition and we have been forced to find a new way to make them meet. In other words, we have lost the house. We have until Monday to be out.
We have 3 options:
1. Tommy quits his job and we move in with my family.
2. Tommy quits his job and we move in with his family.
3. Tommy keeps his job and we move into the motel he works for.
We chose option number 3. So we are moving into a tiny, dingy room at a 50 year old Days Inn. The entire room, bathroom included, is about the same size as my studio now. If things work out, I might actually be able to carve out a small space to get some work done and maybe even have the internet in a couple of weeks.
For anyone who reads and is involved in either of my swaps on CQForNewbies, this has no affect on them at all. Of course so far there has been absolutely no interest in the ornament swap. I had actually hoped that would be a big swap. I would love to be able to cover a small tree in handmade ornaments. Oh well, cie la vie.
Well, better get back to packing so we can go on the road. I will be back and hopefully sooner rather than later. God Bless.

Mary,
Bless you! I am so sorry to hear this. We have the same struggle and will have to get out as well. Never had to go through something like this before and it is miserable. Best of luck.

Oh my goodness. I am so very sorry this is happening to you. How awful. I hope whatever choice you make that it will work out.

I send my sincerest regards.

I'm hoping you can get comments on your cell -- I hope the move went as smoothly as possible. You just carve out some space for yourself -- after all you're the one stuck in the room all day.
