Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.
I’m so excited! I have a house picked out. I’ve been approved for the loan. I have a buyer for my current house. I have someone to move my quilting machine. The only thing left is the waiting. Waiting until all things start to happen. And packing of course.
The people living in my new house are staying until school is out so the kids don’t have to leave before the end of the year. My life is on hold for the next month or so which means not a lot to blog about unless you find that seeing someone putting stuff into boxes exciting. There may be a post or two but for the most part this blog will be on hold until about July 15.
I want a food garden but it looks like it won’t happen this year. If I planted one here I’d have to leave it behind. It will be too late for planting a garden at the new house. I’m not going to the food bank for awhile and I’m not canning more than a bit of essentials because it will be less to move. I never knew it is so difficult finding boxes for packing. Stores don’t want to let people have boxes for some reason.
The posts on this blog will be very few, if any, over the next 5 or 6 weeks while I finish up the last of the in house quilts before my move. 🙂
Its hard to describe the relief I feel knowing I’ll be leaving this horrible neighborhood. When I bought this house I believed I’d eventually pay it off and live rent free the rest of my life. The day I paid the final payment I had hope for an easier, less stressful time. I never in my wildest thoughts believed I’d have a new mortgage at this stage of my life. Sometimes free isn’t worth the risk.
Well, with my news told, its time to head into the quilt studio and get to working. I have three more quilts to finish and if possible a quilt of my own for entering into the fair. Entry deadline is in July.
