Today started out as another not so great day.  It has been raining for several days now.  That is always hard because you have to keep the windows closed and it gets stuffy.  I am feeling very tired and that always gets me down.  I am obsessed about the ticket that I received and the cop that pulled me over.  So all of this has been weighing on me.

I also talked to another agency today and they were less than helpful.  Matter of fact all they did was give me the phone number of the shelter I already stayed at where I was almost robbed.  I told them that I would not go back there. 

I was sitting outside during one of the breaks from the rain and three people came up to me and wanted to ask me some questions.  They are from a bible church that I have been trying to get to.  It is not on a bus route and too far to walk.  They were very helpful.  One of the men gave me a phone number of a shelter and crisis center and told me that they find ways to get through almost any problem and really help people.  He also told me that I will not be robbed if I stay there.  I also can go there on Thanksgiving Day.  That was another thing that was starting to weigh on me, wondering where I would spend the day, since virtually everything is closed that day.  I was hoping to have enough money to stay in that flee bag motel for the day, but that would require a two day stay really.  Not something that is really in my budget.  So maybe I can just stay there after having a meal at the shelter. 

But the three people I met today were very nice and gave me some useful information, they also gave me a pocket bible.  I have come to the conclusion that it is a total waste of time even attempting to contact any state or government agency.  They have zero interest in really helping me get out of being homeless, they are only interested in finding a place to warehouse me, like jail almost.  Any help that I receive is going to have to be from the faith based groups around the area.  Not that I want to minimize the people who have helped me through this blog.  Many have helped.  Thanks to all that have.  I don't think I say that often enough. 

They also gave me some money, which was a good thing because I had no cash and not enough money left on my bus ticket to get back to my car.  My car didn't pass the inspection as I expected it would.  I have to get two new tires, which I of course can't afford.  I am afraid to drive it because of that cop.  So I am back to the bus full time again for the time being.  I have enough for one tire, and I am hopeful that I can get enough together to get that taken care with my next paycheck next week.  My sales this week so far have not been great, but I have that extra day, and I also have at least two more extra shifts over the next few weeks.  So that should help out with the tires. 

Like I said, every time I feel like I am getting somewhere, something else happens.  I guess that is just life.  Or least my life.  But I have my phone paid for the balance of the month and there is enough money in my account to pay for my storage unit.  Those are both important to me.  I am very afraid to be without a phone while sleeping in my car.  I don't want to lose what few possessions I have left in my storage unit.  Especially since I have things from my mom and dad in there.  They are not valuable in a monetary sense, but they are priceless to me. 

Have a good night all. 


  1. I've been reading your blog for a while, and I'm wondering,where is your family?

  2. The only family I really have left is an Aunt who is living in assisted living due to poor health. I lost both my parents before graduating high school. So I am on my own.

    I do have a twin brother, but he is all kinds of trouble. So we don't speak anymore.
