Good EARLY morning all!
Yes, it's about 3:00am here & I can not sleep, so I thought I'd pop on & update this lovely page for y'all. :) I hope everyone is doing well & having a good weekend so far (yes, I realize it just started. lol). I, unfortunately, always work all weekend, so I don't really get to enjoy it like most people. But, that's okay, because then I can get stuff done in the middle of the week and not have to worry about pushing through crowds and whatnot. Hehe! :)
So, as I said in the title of this, things are beginning to look up on my end of things! :) During the last 2 weeks, my husband & I went around and looked at apartment complexes and managed to find one that we REALLY like & we can keep the kitties with us. We filled out our application & turned it in and all the checks that they do have come back clean, and we have been accepted! :) Yay! Now, the only bad thing is that we have to wait until another apartment opens up. The one that we had looked at did become available earlier this week, but unfortunately, there is NO way that we can be ready to move by March 1st...no matter how much I want to! LOL! It's ok though. This will give my husband & I time to save up some more money and buy a few more things that we are going to want for the new place. We are basically looking at getting all new furniture and that stuff doesn't come cheap. Haha! But, we will work it out and have quite a bit saved up already, so we've got 1 foot in that door! ;) I just can't wait until we move. It will be another fresh start for us, which we desperately need. Living right next door to my in-laws is soooooo old now! I'm ready to get away and have a place that I can really relax in & not worry about people looking out their windows to see what the hell I'm doing, when it's really none of their business anyway. Ya know what I mean? Well, if not, consider yourself lucky! :) Plus, I just absolutely LOVE decorating new places! I have so many ideas in my head for the apartment & I can't wait to get started on it! It's not going to be anything fancy, but it's going to become "home" for us & I can't wait!!!!! Gee, can you tell I'm excited!? LOL! I'll keep you all updated on how that goes...hopefully by May or August we'll be in a new place. Keep your fingers crossed for us! :)
Other than that, not a whole lot has been going on. Been trying to get over this insomnia thing, but I just can't, so I deal with the best way I know how: writing. Yup, I'm writing again. I'm trying to finish up a story that I've been working on for the last year & lemme tell you, when you start a story and then stop it for a long period of time, it's hard to get the ideas flowing again. So, when I get stuck on that story, I just write something else until I get a good idea for the 1st story & I go back to it. :) Hopefully I'll have the first one finished soon & can share it with the people that want to read it from beginning to end...hehe! Plus, I've been reading a lot of books lately. I just can't seem to put them down, whether I'm reading romance, mystery, crime drama, etc., I just get sucked in & disappear into "that world" for a few hours. Especially when I've had a bad day or just need some time alone, it's great to grab a book, sit in a quiet room, and just let the words on the pages take me away. I love it. Plus, it also gives me ideas for my stories!
Well, speaking of stories, I think I'm going to end this here & go grab my book & read a little bit & hope that I fall asleep before 4 or 5am, unlike the last few nights. Again, I hope everyone is doing well & I promise to update again soon! Take care & stay safe! Later gators! :)
