Praise the Lord, I have an apartment.

I was shocked. I was told a 5 to 10 year wait list. It hasn’t been even been 2 years yet, but this is senior/disabled housing and the wait list is shorter.

I was terrified I wouldn’t get it because I am still in the throes of bankruptcy and my credit score is very low, but high enough to make it.

I am excited, but terrified. I have only lived aione for no more than 2 years in all of my life.

I have to leave the town I have lived in for 14 years. Though this place is over across the street from one of my past homes.

I will supposedly have a move-in day of March 1st, Being low income my rent will be 30% of my gross adjusted income. It includes heat and hot water. The stove is electric and I am not used to one,

Luckily I won’t have a problem waiting since I can stay here til my family can get together Sunday the 4th of March. Wish the first was on the weekend and the kids were available then.

Don’t know what things I will need.

Thanks for all prayers and well-wishes,

        You have to overcome that and get rid of things you don’t need and really have no use for anymore. The best part of this is that it frees up more room and space to acquire NEW things that you don’t need or have any use for !

    I am so very happy for you! On that electric stove? one of the things I learned (after destroying several pots and pans) was to start on low heat, and move up gradually. if you start on high heat it is darned near impossible to lower it when you need to! You’ll do fine. And even though you have to move away from where you have been for a few years, you at least are going somewhere familiar. I wish I could help you with the move…but there’s an ocean between us!
