A good way to start a week

A good way to start a week

Today is a good day. My dad and stepmom drove up from Florida this weekend. This is the first time my dad has been in NY in years. This will be the first time they are both seeing my condo but more importantly it is the first time I’ve seen my dad in a year and a half. I normally go down to Florida once a year but this year I was in Mexico and it was too much for…

A dogs life in a new condo

A dogs life in a new condo

I’ve waited for days like this. To sit, look out the window, watch the water, drink my coffee and write my blog. I think I’ve finally come to the point where I’ve annoyed my mom. Yesterday when I talk to her I said I’m just so happy and she said I know I know I know LOL The dogs are adjusting well, but find two aspects difficult. We lived in an apartment in someone’s home, now I live in the…

Home Sweet Home By Motley Crue

I thought I’d go really nostalgic here. I might also be showing my age. I don’t care this is one of those songs that just should be good at all ages. I thought it was fitting for me moving into the condo and finally doing the walk-through on the apartment and being closing that chapter. Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue Song Link You know I’m a dreamer But my heart’s of gold I had to run away high So…

Moving stinks

Moving stinks

OK moving should come with a gigantic warning, this was horrible. I thought I was so prepared. I wasn’t! I think moving would be hard for anybody, but adding multiple sclerosis to it is just a recipe for disaster. Unfortunately, in the morning my aid was running late so that left the beginning of the day on me. I had a couple things left to pack up. I didn’t think it was gonna be a big deal, IT WAS A…

I own a condo

I own a condo

Technically I don’t own it,  but it’s mine. But I happy day it was. I’m sharing my picture which I normally would never do because it’s not a flattering shot at the smile on my face was pure joy. This is my mom and my stepdad with me. They were just as happy. It was exciting to go to the condo with my own set of keys and open the door and see this…. My own blank slate. It was…

It’s TODAY

It’s TODAY

oh my God it’s today, we close on the condo. We all meet at 10 o’clock this morning and by 11 o’clock, I will have the keys to my new place. It’s so surreal. I was there yesterday to do the walk-through and it was basically clean but there was still some stuff laying around. Today when I come in will be my blank slate. Today I’ll see the condo for the first time with absolutely nothing there. I’m so…

Ten days left until close

Ten days left until close

The first piece of me was added to the condo yesterday. My light fixture over my dining room table. This is a terrible picture because it looks gold in this yellowish light but it’s silver. It actually looks like this. In the condo she has these lights with lamp shades makes everything look yellow. Today my step dad and I are going to Home Depot to pick out new door locks and sconces. On a side note yesterday was the…

No going back now

No going back now

My apartment I’m living in has already been rented. A nice woman came yesterday and immediately left a deposit. First person to see the place. No going back now. Well hopefully we close before December 31st otherwise I’m homeless. I know we will but it still made my mother and I a little nervous. This other woman is putting notice on her apartment with her landlord so it’s like a ripple effect. Work done in the condo or not, I…
