There are so many things going on at once around here. We’ve got things going wrong left and right. We are in the process of trying to find a new place.
Our needs aren’t out of reach. We need a place that is affordable, preferably with 3 bedrooms. We need a place near enough to my husband’s work so that he’s not spending copious amounts of his check filling his gas tank. And, we need someplace that will allow Bear B. He’s only 65 pounds of mostly fluff. He’s a border collie/chow chow hybrid. Neither of those breeds is on any banned list (although I don’t believe ANY breed should be on any banned list, because, like children, puppies are innocent until someone teaches them to be otherwise). Most people think he is much larger. The average person guesses he’s between 90 and 95 pounds. It’s all the fur that comes from his chow chow mother.
So, like I said, our needs aren’t much. We are currently applying for residency nearby. It fits our needs perfectly. We are awaiting to be approved. Neither of us have the greatest of credit. Mostly, it’s those stupid student loans we took out to get degrees in fields that seem to either not exist or not have the need for people that was claimed when we signed up. Student loans we may NEVER be able to afford to pay back with the job market being what it is and wages barely covering the cost of living for most Americans.
I’m not much for praying, but I am praying now. Praying that we hear back quickly and that the words we hear are you’re approved. I’m praying that we will find the money we need to finance this move. We’ve needed to move for some time. We’ve need to get a place of our own. We’ve been playing caretaker to my husband’s grandmother’s estate since she passed away last year. Before that, I was her primary live in caregiver while she was sick. We’ve put our lives on hold for almost two years, now.
Truth is, I feel like it’s gotta be our turn. I feel like we have given and given, receiving nothing in return. I’m ready to cash in on all the good I’ve done. Is that a thing? Does anyone know where the good deed bank is? I need to make a withdrawal.
I wish I knew a thing or two about using GoFundMe (or something like that) to obtain needed funds… However, I’m not above collecting prayers. If you happen to be having a conversation with God, could you ask Him to look out for my family and help us move on to the next chapter in our lives?
