Omgosh getting out of the house even for just an hour really helped..it's so nice out..the wind is a bit chilly but the air and the sun really did wonders..

Got great new..I went to the HDC office and got an application for HUD housing and they have apartments for 55 and older..and there is only a 2-4 months waiting list..unbelievable..I'm so excited about that..

So picked up an application and Christina and I will be filling that out..and turning it back in next week..

And then Christina is going to talk to Section 8 about getting at least my deposit back..I hope so because omgosh it's going to cost me a fortune to move again..

Then I think if I did my bills right I can afford the bed..that's $75..for bed, box, frame and all..I just hope he don't charge me to deliver it..because I really don't have the money for that..

If nothing goes wrong and I don't over spend..I will have $5 left out of my check and am going to treat myself to McDonalds on my birthday lol..or Wendy's or some other place that's sort of cheap lol..

I'm getting a full size bed today.. HappyDay it cost $75 without the headboard..he had said I would get one but he had forgotten..and got all of them sold..that's ok though..I will use my cushions off the couch to put behind my back for support..he normally charges $15 for delivery but I didn't have that so he is just charging me $5..

I will be getting this in about 30 minutes..so I will be on and off getting that done and some laundry..

If you have heard of the Storage Wars that runs on HGTV he does this kind of thing..he also brings in a professional to clean the beds and furniture..so no bedbugs, roaches and fleas

I'm off to go wait for him outside..

I haven't even slept in it yet..have to give Tiffany a bath and wash blankets first..got all the stuff in the bathroom to do that but just no energy to get on my hands and knees to do it..she isn't hard to wash she don't like it but she will stand there lol..may force myself here in a bit to do it..I really want to sleep in a bed again..it's been years since I slept in a bed..this couch really looked comfortable until I lay down..no back support really..the cushions for the back of the couch is so big and fluffy they are not really working for me..but again I will have to use them to place against the wall until I can find something that will work for my back..

Got to sleep in the bed last night..still not enough back support though even with the large pillows..going to have to figure something out..but I did sleep more than I normally do..and Tiffany really liked the fact that she can now spread out over the bed instead of stuck with a tiny place on the couch lol..
Going in this afternoon for a lung cancer screening..just to keep the doctors happy..nothing wrong with my lungs..
Still waiting on phone calls from the allergist and nose, throat and ear specialist..
This week will be taking my application to the HUD office and get on a waiting list..they take care of their apartments better than Section 8..and they have 2 inspections a year..one for state and one for federal..and they really go through the apartments with a fine tooth comb..2 to 4 months waiting list for the 55 and older..not as bad as I thought..

Rained here last night..and it's cloudy out..I think there might be more rain on the way..and it looks breezy out I can see the branches blowing..

Have a great day everyone

Sounds good Sam. We have finally gotten rid of all that snow. I live in a rural area so many people were snowed in and couldn't get out, or they had to dog their way out. I stayed home, the road here to the main road was like an ice rink, with cars sliding all over. Not for me, no way. The puppies loved it, especially when I threw snowballs for them to catch. So cute.
Anyway, a busier week for me now, as I have to play catch up from last week.

Sam - Do you sleep sitting up? What do you need the cushions for? I know you said there's no headboard. I was going to suggest maybe getting a piece of plywood to put under the mattress and on top of the box springs to firm it up if it was the issue of the actual mattress being too soft and not supportive enough.  That apartment sounds great! Right after I got divorced (many moons ago) I lived in Govertment Substidized housing, which I think is HUD, rent was income based. And, they were pretty strict about everything, you HAD to plant flowers outside of your apartment in front, no junker cars broke down in the parking spaces. They inspected it once a month to make sure you didn't have a bunch of trash inside, and were really good if anything broke down. And a 2-3 month wait list is great! For these apartments, it was 2-3 YEARS to get into one!

Tilly - Hopefully spring is just around the corner for you. I'm a little nervous because it's been pretty warm, unusually warm actually for the month of February, and now we're into March. Haven't had any more snow since the last time, and I'm afraid we'll end up having a final late in the season snow storm for the last Winter Hurrah before it's officially spring! A few years ago, during my daughter's spring break from school, we were flying to Florida to see my parents, we had a HUGE ice storm while we were gone and that was the first week of April!

Your funny TJ..that really sounds good right about now..I love, love sea food..I could live on it, if it wasn't so expensive..lol..

The mattress is doable don't need the plywood as of yet..I might later on get a piece..

I sort of sleep sitting up..I have 4 pillows under my head 2 of them are really thin and I fold them..and then tuck the top one under my neck..the pillows for my back is what I really need..I have the bed against the wall and then I put the pillows off of the couch on the wall and then put my whole back up to it..the pillows are just to soft..and then I have 2 small pillows that usually go onto a chair or the couch you know the ones like I recolored those and have them between my knees..I can't lay flat on my back or on my stomach anymore..I will think of something and look around the thrift stores..

There was one place I went..let me think oh Good Will they had a lot of pillows in a bin..I may check on them next month and see what all is in there to help my back support against the wall..just need some firmer pillows..

I went in and did my lung cancer screening..that will make my doctor happy lol..and then went shopping..just now getting home and put just what had to go into the refrigerator and freezer up..the rest will sit till tomorrow..that is usually how I have to do things..but for the life in me I usually take a nap right about now..but am wide awake..and that's a good thing..so I will go to bed at a decent hour tonight I hope lol..

The cab driver said it was supposed to get back down into the freezing point for the lows in the next few days..not a good thing..I WANT SUMMER lol..

You know how men like to talk right..how macho they are and all that..well the cab driver was doing that..he said he was from Michigan and how the Canadians would come over and have rival fights and well he said that no Canadian could whip their butts..and all that..well I'm not stupid or naive..when men talk like that..that means they got their butts kicked all the time..all I did was keep my mouth shut and smile..men are idiots..lol..

I feel a bit better right now..since I got out of this place and got some fresh air..may try and get the B.A.D. going..tonight..while I am up to it.. just haven't found everything I need..and will have to recolor the couch and maybe the chairs..and may have to show you the picture so you all can help me find the right colors for it..you know me and colors shame

That sounds delicious TJ....Im a vegetarian, but i do eat seafood or fish if i go out for dinner. Lots of restaurants still only offer one selection which is vegetarian, and often I dont like it. Dont give me kale or quinoa ...yuk. But i live in a rural farming area. Its mothers day on Sunday and my favourite restaurant is serving haunch of venison, duck, rabbit, pigeon or lamb. No way would i eat that. Even more yuk. But they do have gnocchi with a wild mushroom florentine. I shall be very happy with that. I love scallops, but they are serving it with black pudding (shudder). The food is delicious, it has a michelin star. Im looking forward to it as Florence is home for the weekend. Yay!

Here is the winter when more snow came this morning but it's only a few minus degrees out so it's nice.

Hi All,

Yes, it's snowing right now and I love it. It's soooo peaceful. The air is cold and crisp. And, it just smells good. Oh my goodness, what a beautiful day!

I loaded Sims Jungle Adventure on my computer yesterday. It's okay. However, I believe a Seasons expansion pack would have been better.

Stay warm,
Easter01
