Hey you two!!
Here I am - back home!!! Sorry I have not dropped by - there was soooo much going on and such a long time getting back, and then internet being wonky. Anyway, hubby and I have agreed never again so far as we can help it will we fly with American Airlines. It was a very unpleasant trip both ways. If you can fly West Jet - they, on the other hand, have really nice staff and less squishy seating.
It is very good to 'see' you guys here again. What is your weather like? We came back to SNOW and a proper cold Canadian winter, so I am feeling much better. lol! No more like a duck out of water...or should I say a penguin out of ice. haha.
The house is worse than we remembered. When we
opened the door the smell of mold came wafting out. The bathroom is sickening with the smell and I have not showered in days because of it! I mean, the mold is so bad, and I am affected quite noticeably by it. Was going to shower tonight but then the water from the dishes backed up and came through the pipes back up into the bathtub carrying grime up with it. Gross! Needless to say, we gave the landlords notice tonight!!! And we are applying to get help from our disability office to spend the month in a hotel while we find some place healthy and decent to rent instead. So this has kind of taken some of the kindness out of the coming home experience - but we are both trying to keep telling ourselves and each other that we are moving forward. I have a lot of resentment toward h re. how we came to rent this place as well as finances in general, and I am recognizing that forgiveness is going to take time, but I'm working on it.
So been enduring this place a couple days, but hopefully will be in a hotel by the end of the week. That is both a relief and like a brick in the stomach as I'm not looking forward to living in a hotel again for a month. Depressing, depressing and depressing. But will try to make the best of it. I guess I'll probably be having more nature walks to post about
if that's the case! lol!!
Made it through Christmas. I actually was quite sick the night before the big hoopla so coudn't go. H went without me. Glad to hear Christmas went well for you both.
It is good to be back here - you help me remember to look on the bright side of things and I really need to do that right now.
So the bright side is that we are home safely, and that we have options and still have the hope of a better home to come. When I come back to post about
the great home we have found, and, if after a month, I am still posting about
the great home we are living in, then you will have witnessed a miracle and you can all say Hallelujah and Amen okay? haha. Seriously, I am hoping for a miracle - for a really great place to turn up. These crappy rentals are really something h and I are mroe than ready to leave behind. It's very hard on our marriage and on our physical and emotional and mental and uh spiritual healht to keep moving like this!! Oh well, here's a new years toast to a brighter future and good days ahead for all of us! Cheers!!!
Hope you both are doing okay and enjoying new years with those you love. May blessings surround you and your families and all the wonderful people here at healingwell throughout this coming year and beyond.
