The last couple of days I have been just exhausted. It seems to take all my energy just to get up and get to work in the morning. S reminded me that I have had a lot of life changes in the past month and that is probably why I am tired. I just wish the next 3 weeks would fly by so that I can get moved and then I can finally have a moment to sit and relax.

On Sunday I noticed that I was getting a yeast infection. I really didn't want to spend the money for the treatment so I looked up on the Internet to see what home remedies they suggested. I found one where you take a tampon, dip it in plain yogurt and then insert the tampon. I tried that and it did not work, so I ended up going to the drug store today and buying something for it. Hey don't laugh, I was trying to save some money.

Speaking of money...I am so broke right now. I know that once I move and get settled things will be a lot better financially, but right now I just have more money going out then I have coming in. What has really hurt me is the money I had to spend on my ticket for the expired tags. I am glad that is all over with, but that was a big hit to me financially. Plus the new tire I had to replace on Dottie and well, I feel so poor right now. Every Friday all the managers go out to lunch and I will not be going out with them this Friday. I would rather use that money for gas to go up and see S on Sunday.

Speaking of S....boy do I miss her. It has been almost 2 weeks since I have seen her and I miss her like crazy. Whenever I get stressed or overwhelmed (which is not that often) by this move, all I have to do is think about the fact that I will see her almost everyday once I move. In our six months together we have probably only spent 12 nights together, so it will be nice waking up next to her most mornings. I do imagine that will make it harder getting to work in the morning. :)

Yesterday I thought I had a refrigerator all lined up, but the deal fell through. So I am back to square one for looking for a refrigerator. I really don't have the money for a brand new one, and there aren't a lot of places around my small town that sell used appliances. I am not going to worry because it will all work out.

Each night I have been doing a little more packing. I have settled down and don't mind living in total chaos, but it will be good once I get settled in the new house. Oh, when I was packing last night look what I found:
Snoopy is going to look so good in front of my house next Christmas.

Snoopy will be the hit of the town. Sorry about the money situation that's always a big downer.

Lynilu said...

You STILL have Snoopy!?!?!? Very cool!

Tiredness - don't forget your body is still healing from the wreck. Then add all the stress you're going through, and it is no wonder your body is out of energy. It will be over soon, and as you said, you can rest and get calmed down quickly after that.

The fridge - might be better to buy it after you move than to have to move it. have you looked in the paper up there or at thrift stores in that area?

mj--i think he will be. i have only seen a few of these snoopys.

lynilu--of course i still have snoopy. i had to get rid of most of my other x-mas decorations, but there was no way i was going to part with snoopy. gee, i keep forgetting about the wreck...well, not forget, but forget that my body is still recovering.

It will get better...once you are moved and settled. Hang in there.

Caroline, if you want to save $ for a fridge, you are welcome to this old college fridge I have sitting in the basement. It doesn't have a lot of space, but it could get you through until you find a good one. I was just going to put it in my garage sale in the spring and then if no one bought it, put it out for large-item-pickup. It is kind of old and clunky, but it worked the last time I turned it on... It's only about 3 feet tall -- not much space.

Caroline said...

renaissance woman--you are right..once i move everything will be so much better. (not that things are real bad right now)

amy--thank you so much for you offer. i sent you an email.
