So, pretty much everything is the same as it has been. Nothing new to report about the house situation. It looks as if we will not be getting that home I previously talked about. It sucks. Big time. I really love that house. I have been overly depressed this past week and had a mini break down. I screamed. I cried. I threw things. I thought for sure my head would explode. The what-I-think-is-a-stress-induced-headache has continued on for several weeks. No matter the amount of over-the-counter painkillers I pop it still remains. I have tried several different stress reducing techniques and nothing works.
I am still not giving up on the getting the hell out of here idea. It just seems like it will take me a little longer. Today, while driving to the store I saw a house with a “For Rent” sign. I grabbed my cell phone and called the number posted on the sign. The man on the other end of the line said he was sorry but the house was just rented. He did not even have the sign up for 24 hours and has to go take it down. That’s the problem I keep running into. The houses in my area are snatched up in a matter of hours. It would be nice to broaden my search but I do not want to take Raven out of this area. She will be starting high school this fall and even though it is technically a new school she will be entering high school with all her friends. My parents took me out of several schools and I always hated it. I do not want to do that to Raven. Especially when she has been with these other kids since kindergarten.
Besides all that crappiness, the outside cat I feed (we call her River) had 2 kittens which she is now bringing around. They are adorable and I (of course) want to keep them. One is striped (just like River) and the other one is black. I think the black kitten is a girl and the striped kitten is a boy. And because cats make me happy, I will leave you with pictures of the kittens.

I can even imagine the frustration you must be going through having to deal with the whole house issue. I love my inlaws but if I had to live with them for very long, I’d tear my hair out lol. If you ever need to talk, I’m usually on facebook. If you don’t see me on the chat, feel free to inbox me 🙂

Oh jeez, Manda! I’m so sorry to hear that you didn’t get the house! Don’t worry, your luck will change and for the better! Just keep praying and wishing it will! I will do the same!
Thanks I needed that. She is a bit of a downer right now, cause she had to move twice. She’s literally been bashing me since day one, trying to make herself look like the good one, and me like a person who’s going to fail no matter what I do. Well; the only thing that pissed her off was the fact that I took OUR dog out for a potty break, and she had to have her non-spayed female 3 year old dog up with her. Well; I was still outside and just talking to my dad and my dog hasn’t seen his daddy in so long other than a few potty breaks and that’s it (he usually sleeps with him and now he sleeps with me cause his girlfriend doesn’t want her dog violated). So she was pissed off that I didn’t come back in and say “I’m done with the break”. But still no reason to be pissed off at what she dished out. Yeah things may have been taken the wrong way. But it’s how she said it is what hurt. Ya know? But it’s over with. I’m hoping I can convince her to let me help prepare a Father’s Day meal for my dad tomorrow WITH HER. We have some veggies that I brought home from the food drive which is awesome. He loves all the veggies I brought home. I’m going to try and find some recipes that I can make out of them. So maybe that will lighten things up a bit? I dunno yet. She got pissed off at me again today cause she said I threw a temper tantrum last night just by removing her desk out of my room, and two of her pillows which she gave me. I didn’t throw one. If she wants to see a tantrum she should be around me more often. I curse up a storm when I have one. But just removing her desk out of my room when I have a perfectly good small desk, isn’t necessary to say I had a tantrum when I didn’t. She doesn’t want any negativity, in the house that’s fine. She doesn’t like horror movies. I DO. She wants me to sell mine. So I listened. Bad mistake there, cause now if no one buys them on ebay.com I’ll have to pay a dang fee for it. -_-.
So yeah. Another thing that drove me nuts is the fact she called one of my idols a pompous jackass just because of what she had seen of him doing on Celebrity Apprentice. (Meat Loaf). I was shocked. I defended him. But a pompous jackass he is not! Ya know? Sure he has his flaws just like the next person and I understand she’s under a lot of pressure right now. With the move and what not being away from her kid (whose 35 and a grown woman with two kids but can’t support them which is her own fault really) but to be bad mouthing my dad behind his back and me for that matter. Aint gonna fly. He talked it over with her. And I guess, she told him that the guy I was talking to, I said was in love with me. I never said that. I said he likes me but has a girlfriend and she told me don’t go there. And I’m not. I asked if he could come hang out, and my dad said “You don’t know this guy, and he’s not in love with you”. I slept half the day to rid the depression and stress. For many reasons, they were busy upstairs all day figuring out bills and she was pissed off. I texted my dad and I said I never said that the guy was in love with me. I just wanted to know if he could hang out. That’s it. But I got your answer and I told him no to begin with. But yeah. I also said he’s too young for me. And dating someone else too. So I’m not going there.
But dang your kitties are so cute!!! I have a kitty too!! She’s my everything! Best friend and everything! So is my dog! I take care of them both (kinda have to now). But yeah. I wish you the best of luck in finding a new place and soon! However, it is tough and if you have to take Raven out of that high school, you may just have to do it. But there’s nothing wrong with driving her back and fourth if you have a car and what not. Ya know what I mean? Well; I hope things works out for the better, and you’ll get a new house sooner or later! I’ll be praying for you guys! Happy father’s day to your hubby!

Aw, I’m sorry you’re not having any luck with the house search. I think it’s great that you don’t want to take her out of school. I remained with the same kids for my entire school years and I can’t imagine switching. Just keep searching and you’ll find one soon.

I feel you, I’m currently in a similar situation. Kind of. For the past four-five months I’ve been searching for an apartment since I can’t imagine living with my ex anymore and I can’t stay in hospital forever (even if they’re not pushing me out) but there’s just no apartments/houses for rent in this area. None. But I’ve decided that when it’s time for it to happen, it’ll happen, just as I’m sure it’ll happen with you. You’re not finding a place yet because just around the corner, there’s something awesome waiting for you. 🙂 *hugs* Just hang in there!
And oh my AWWWW those cats are adorable. <333!

I’m sorry about the housing issues. I do give you kudos about caring for your daughter. I hated when my parents always took me out of schools and wourld “threaten” to move again. We would tend to move every 3 years but they would tell me every year how we were going to move and I could make new and more friends and I could keep in touch with the ones I had made. Yeahh, lies… I’m glad we’re finally staying in one place and I’m glad where I’m at now. So none of that matters anymore. I hope you find something nearby!

I wish that was a problem where I lived. Everything would prolly be a lot cheaper, but we’re paying almost 900$ for a ONE BEDROOM apartment. TWO BEDROOMS is like 1200$… it’s insane. I hope things work out for you and get better 😀 Good luck!

It’s such a kick in the tummy when you want something so badly and then realise you may never get it 🙁 I am really sorry that may be the case …
