Hmm, as long as I have been blogging, I always have a hard time starting my entries. I often forget that people actually read my blogs until recently. I received an email from Oriol who works for Poz. He forwarded an email that was written to him from someone who had been following my blog. The person was concerned about me. It touched me to know that someone who knows nothing about me could actually care.

Yep, expect the unexpected, that has been happening to me a lot lately. I finally have found an apartment. All the paperwork has been done. I am just waiting on it to get inspected next week. Thank the Goddess for that. For a minute there, I thought I might have been on my way back to Erie, feeling like a failure. Instead, I will be out shopping for appliances and new furniture.

I’m not sure if I mentioned it or not but the court situation turned out good as well. We both decided to drop our orders against each other. We both agreed it wasn’t worth the stress or aggravation. I was totally blown away by this but also felt blessed by the unexpected turn of events. Truly, it felt as if a weight had been lifted.

My last day at the shelter was suppose to have been April 26th but I was granted an extension. I will be allowed to stay until the paperwork is completed for the apartment. These six months of being homeless has been long,hard, and frustrating.  It caused me to become depressed but it also made me humble. More importantly, it has showed me just how strong I can be.
