The Move Is Over

 
I sold the house and have moved out. A short sale avoided a foreclosure. It was hell moving out. You never know all you have till you move. And collecting over the years hadn't helped either. One thing I did learn was that I need to go to the storage and get rid of more things. But instead of just donating I need to sell some things. I have things I know I can sell. 

It was exhausting work. I had friends helping but it took it's toll on all of us. I had so many bruises in places I didn't think it could happen and wondered just how I got some of them.

Now the downside to this all. I am still looking for work, and have no permanent home. I am in fact living in a Residence Inn. It's too expensive to stay here for much longer. 

The three things I need and pray for are, a car, job and a home to live in. I am even considering re-locating out of state for a cheaper place to live other than living in high priced California. My son leaves for College in September for Oregon, so why should I not take that opportunity to do something as well ?

Thank you to those that still come by once in awhile to check in. I do hope that someday I will be back to blogging or at least using the blog to sell things.

Glad to hear from you. I just recently checked to see if you had posted and I missed seeing it on my reader. Sure wished I had some answers for you. I bruise easily - always have. Moving is no fun under any circumstances, especially what you are going thru. (((hugs)))
Take care of yourself.

Well at least you got the move checked off your list. Why did you go to the Residence Inn rather then an apt? Wouldn't an apt be cheeper for you?

I sure do hope you find the perfect job soon and everything falls back into place for you.

You have been so strong and I have and will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Hugs,
Joanne

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Glenda. I know you can sell some things too, I know you have fantastic taste and people would enjoy purchasing from you. I agree with you... why not try a move, it may hold something very positive for you.

I'm so glad you checked in with us.
There are many that are holding you up in prayer.
A relocation may be the best thing.
I will pray for a job, a car, and a place to live.

Sending hugs and blessings your way.

I think a change of scenery to give you a brighter outlook would be a good thing. I'm glad your house sold. Everything else will fall into place also in its own time. My thoughts and prayers are always with you. You are always welcome in Florida, though I know it's very far from Oregon.

Glad to hear from you. I know many people who have moved out of California. It is an expensive place to live! It sounds like you have the opportunity to start fresh where ever you would like. I'm sure you could sell some of your stuff. Maybe even try an acution house so you won't have to move it with you if you go and can get some quick cash. I know one day you will be back on your feet and living in a sweet home again. Good luck and I'll keep you in my prayers.
