I had some good news yesterday.  I was able to work an extra shift yesterday, someone has a family emergency and is unable to work for a week.  Not that it is a good thing for them, but it will help me.  Especially since someone came and bought 3 rooms of furniture yesterday.  They just bought a bigger home.  So that was very nice for me.  Sales have picked up a bit over the past two weeks.  I am not sure if it is the big sale they had or maybe it is starting to take a turn for the better.  That remains to be seen.  But at least my paycheck will be not be something to laugh at only. 

I want to thank the people who have helped me out recently. I want to tell you, this is the first time in such a long time that I am hopeful.  The light at the end of the tunnel is still aways away, but at least I can see it now. 

Apparently I have corporate sponsors now.  So click and get some gold and silver prices.  I don't know how they found me, but I am thankful that they did. 

I didn't have time to get my car checked out yesterday since I had to go to work.  I am also wondering if I should spend the money now before I have enough to get it fixed.  Sometimes I think at least I will know what it costs and other times I think why give them that money when I may need it for some other emergency that comes up.  I have almost no cushion.  I need to think about it some more I guess.  Or maybe some of you can give some input.  The test is $100.  I already know that the fan doesn't work.  I already know which hose is leaking.  I shouldn't have an issue with the housing (I think that is the right term) because I had to have that fixed a year ago. The radiator itself is also not leaking as far as I can tell.  I have to think on this.  I can't get it done until Thursday due to my schedule, so I have time to think about it. 

Also, I met a boy over the weekend.  Well, I actually met him a few weeks ago, but we got to talking.  This is a very strange situation.  I can't exactly hide the fact that I am homeless for long and I would think that would make him run in the other direction as quickly as he can.  So what is the point?  But he seems nice and he is cute too.  Who knows maybe I am reading too much into it and he was just trying to be friendly.  God knows I have been really lonely.  I have only been out with a few guys since Dickie and I broke up.  I did see someone about four or five times but it fizzled out after that.  Once money got really tight for me, I closed myself off to dating thinking it would be pointless.  So, it would be nice just to go out on date and have adult conversation for a change.  I am amazed at how little I hear my own voice now.  My world is so small I don't really talk to many people anymore. 

Have a good day.


  1. check your car. You NEED that thing. Even if it costs $100.

  2. take the $100 I sent via paypal and check over your car. OK?

  3. 1) Get your car checked out asap.

    2) Go out on a date!!!!! :)


  4. The car is no danger of being additionally damaged. I am not driving it. I just use it as my bedroom and a closet.

    But I guess I should just so I can start budgeting for it.

    The least amount it is going to cost is about $200. That I can handle pretty much right away.

    You two are right, I need to bring it on Thursday to get it done.

  5. Hi! Glad to see that you changed the settings and I can comment now. YAAY! Before, I didn't have the right ID's.

    Just wanted you to know I've been following your blog since I saw JustAConservativeGirl's post about you. Have been praying for your safety and provision.

    I have one suggestion that I've wanted to make, as I've read along. You have mentioned more than once that Sundays are your least favorite day. I understand it has to do with fewer places to pass the time. I wonder if you have considered attending a local church; that would be several hours worth of being inside, plus the benefit of meeting more people who might be able to help out, or maybe have some work for you. I would introduce myself to the pastor, and just start attending, every Sunday, and get to know people. The larger the network of people you know, the better your chances of finding a job. Or a place to live. Or a great hot meal.

    Best wishes to you; I say a prayer for you each day.

  6. I wish you were closer, I am in upstate New York and my husband is a mechanic - I would get him to fix your car. You can email me with any car questions & I can try to get informaation for you so at least you'd have a clear picture of what you are dealing with if any more car issues come up: MJStevenson@ymail.com.
    You probably should get your car checked out, but if it is just a hose & you can find where it is leaking from, duct tape works as an emergency (very temporary) fix. I only know that because I've done it. It really only works for long enough to get the car to the shop (or in my case, home) but at least it can keep you from being busted on the side of a road somewhere.
    I am glad that you met a nice young man, no need to tell him about your situation unless you feel comfortable enough around him to do so. If he asks you on a date, go, it will help to lift your spirits to spend time doing something fun. Get to know the guy, if he's a good guy, when he learns of your situation, I don't think he'll go away.
    Know that you are in my prayers. I know that you will get through this.

  7. Ms. Zilla:
    Thanks I will keep it in mind. Maybe I will send your husband the list of what needs to be fixed with the cost and see what he says. It seems reasonable to me, but what do I know?

    Mr/Ms. Pup:
    I do go to church every Sunday. But my church is very small. People don't really gather after the service is over. They do a money thing for me every month and buy me a gift card for food. So I am grateful to them for that. They are nice people, but just not a real position to help all that much. But they are a good moral support for me. Which is just as important in current situtation.

  8. I'm glad to know that you have that support.
