We are now officially completely homeless and here I sit doing a blog post, NOT looking for somewhere for my family to live... ahhh priorities... bloggy first.
Hey, overseas friends...I'm 'House Of The Month' over at Home Beautiful, HERE (thank you for spotting it Vanessa!) and you can see some of the Home Beautiful article online. Yay! Thank you once again Home Beautiful. Total icing on the cake. I really needed this pep up this morning.... just rescued hubby from his broken down car, homeless and desperately unwell. Nice to have a lovely start to the next part of the day!
We are in total panic mode now. We managed to get out of the lease we signed, due to the discrepancies between the real estate agent's condition report and ours... which is a great relief, considering the non disclosed 'cat habitant' and 'whatever lives in the carpet thing'...... and my son's streaming eyes and gasping breaths... but that now makes us completely homeless ...unless I find something absolutely pronto. We did have a beautiful brand new rental lined up, months back, that we had to let go as the new owners extended the sales contract... so we have gone from pillar to post over the past few months. Coming? Going? I don't know. My big boy keeps saying, "things are never as bad they seem Mum"... ooh where did your wisdom come from son? Added to the fact, I spent a day in the local emergency dep't this week, due to my lungs.... wanted to keep me in overnight.... but I had to pick the boys up from school (hubby away)... that would have been nice.. a night at the Mater Hilton, meals included.
I must admit I am struggling with everything.... health, exhaustion, one car broken down (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT... like a bad movie) but I have my lads to help so we'll get there. You've gotta laugh... life does change on a dime... doesn't it.
Will let you know how I go with the debacle that is our life at present!
PS. Thanks again Home Beautiful - you've made my day.
