First, I want everyone to know that Charlie is doing really well. He gets a bit of his prescription dry food and can't seem to figure out how to eat it yet.
He had nine teeth taken right in front and one on each back side. He's my little trooper. And I thank you all for your concern.
I need tranquility right now. I've been searching for some place to move for over a year. I'm at the point now where I want to move before I have to pay for the upkeep on the yard (mowing, trimming of trees) that I can't handle myself, because that is an added expense.
I'd like to be able to save a bit for my taxes so I don't have to find a way to come up with it all at once.
I've looked online for lots of places out of town, but am afraid with my ankle it would be hard for me both to move.
What it has boiled down to is this: I HAVE to be able to have my pupsters. I really wanted a small yard for the dogs with some sort of a fence, a washer/dryer connection, non-carpeted floors, and obviously something I can afford.
Seems I just can't have all that, so will have to give up something. And it WILL NOT be the pupsters.
So I've been anxious about all this for weeks, actually months, now. I go to bed thinking about it and I wake up thinking about it.
I scour Craig's List every morning and make calls. It's about to do me in, to tell you the truth. Because I just can't figure out quite what to do.
I'm really tired of moving, but I can't keep paying for plumbing and electrical repairs on this house, which is in my lease.
The landlord that has a house next door has so many broken limbs in a huge tree, and won't ever take care of it.
Then we get an ice storm and it falls on my old electric line to my house and brings it down. That's $200 I have to pay to get that hooked back up and working again.
I really need to find that landlord, but I've got so many other things I'm trying to do that I just haven't.
Oh, to have a home I never had to leave. To have one that was mine and I could do what I wanted within it. Doubt that is ever going to happen. Such is life.
