I’m sorry that there hasn’t been much going up on the blog lately. It’s not for lack of wanting, I just haven’t been inspired for much these days. We’re still trying to sort out a place to live, and that’s been stressful for us. We believe we have two possibilities right now, we’re just waiting to find out if they can get high speed internet. If one of them can, we’ll be moving forward.

Unfortunately, everything is so expensive. It looks like rent is going to be $800-850 for a place that fits three, plus utilities, and replacing all the stuff we’ll be losing in the move, not to mention the non-refundable application fees. We still don’t have enough money for everything, but donations on GoFundMe dried up some time ago. I’ve been trying to drive sales to the Zazzle shop, my books and my jewelry and crafts, but sales have been really slow. I was especially hoping to have all the jewelry sold off before we moved.

I’m trying to stay positive, but I haven’t been sleeping well and this whole situation is just wearing on all of us. It doesn’t help that Zazzle has been broken for two weeks and I just don’t have the energy to do much. I really want to be well-rested and inspired and moving through life like a squirrel on candy the way I used to. The will is there, the energy just isn’t.

I have managed to keep up with my walking though, so there’s that. I can’t seem to get my weight down the rest of the way to my goal, but at least I’m not gaining. I’m grateful for that.

I want to write more, to have more to say, but my mind is just blank most of the time. I can’t think and it’s killing me. It makes me want to cry, a lot. The lack of money and not being moved yet are just so stressful. I keep praying that everything will get sorted soon and that we can get moved and start a new life and things will be better.

    Hi Briana
    I’m sorry to hear that life is so stressful for you right now. i wish i could help in some practical or financial way but, unfortunately, I can’t.
    At times like these, I cling to the old saying “what’s meant for you won’t pass you by”…..life has a way of working out – not always, when we want it to, how we think it will, but it does; and eventually we come to understand why.
    Be kind to yourself…..don’t worry about the weight – you’re keeping up the exercise, which will benefit you both physically and mentally – the weight’ll sort itself out and balance at what is right for you.
    Keep going, my friend, I’ll be thinking of you.

      Thank you. I’m really hoping that everything works out. I guess I’m just impatient. I hate being stuck in a holding pattern when all I want to do is move forward.
      Just for the record, knowing people are out there thinking of me is a practical help. It’s always good to know that you’re not alone in the world.
