keeping on

Well, I thought I should update this. We sealed our fate for what WE can do when we paid the dentist for my teeth. No chance to make up past house payments. That’s so hard for me to know. Can’t change it. I knew this was coming, but still, it’s hard. I guess we are going to loose the house tho Steve is still not saying that out loud. I really have no idea what we will do when that happens or how long it will be before BOA moves on us. Statistics say one in 45 children are homeless.

On a bright note, we got another house to clean this week and we have sold some things on ebay. I wrapped those old food cans with wrapping paper we had, stacked them, and made us a tree using old garland, lights and ornaments. It’s really cute. I may never buy another tree we got so much help with being creative! No one really cares about presents anymore. We have what we need.  :0)

People have ideas they share and I listen well in case there is something we haven’t tried. 3 yrs of this though and two things are very clear. ONE: we are all suffering from depression. and TWO: we need a storefront. I don’t know how to get rid of the first or pull off the second.

I don’t want this to be so negative. We are OK. Everyone is healthy. There is work today. We aren’t hungry. The animals are all ok. The car is running. The phone is on for emergencies. The sun’s out.

One day at a time works with blinders. :0)

Like today, work with Don is out – painting is out – but we sold $35 worth of stuff on Craigs List. I’m working on a knitting project and Steve is rebuilding our gardening table. It’s 70 degrees, sunny and G came home early from school. Finals = half days.


About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
