My daughter & son in law moved in with me last July ...after John passed. My sil got laid off at work, and they were having some "marital problems" He found a job in Eastern Washington -- 4 hours from here. They are working on their issues and he comes back on the weekends. My daughter really likes the area over there. She has been working at a job she got through a Temp agency. There are job openings where her husband works and she is applying there. I found out she gave her 2 week notice here.
She said they will come over twice a month to help with mowing, and other chores..
I am a 9 yr stroke survivor, but do okay ... since they work.. I am alone all day, I usually have dinner ready for them.
I am going to a bankruptcy lawyer this am, see what they can do, I also have a number for credit counseling.. With the business debt and other things.. I may be better off to just let it all go. This breaks my heart.
I said well if you find something over there, I could even live in a larger travel trailer on the property. I don't need a lot of room. I will try 1st to stay here for as long as I can. I have no real ties.. other than the 16 yrs here on the property, and all the work, clearng, planting fruit trees, etc.
My 19 yr old grandson just moved back in, It is closer to his job.. so he will be here 5 or 6 months. Could be longer.depends on where his next job is. He is learning to be a Marine electrician. working on boats. so his job moves him around. he leaves for work at 4 am and gets home around 6 pm.. so other than a Hello, him eating and good night... there is not much interaction.
I have a manfactured home on 5 rural acres, I also have 5 "old" dogs and 2 elderly cats.
Well whatever happens.. will happen.... I am getting to the point where nothing surprises me anymore.
It is what it is.... I give this up to God to help me in the right direction. Material possessions.. not important. they come and go.. My heart is empty right now.. but I will do everything in my power to keep my fur babies safe until they cross the Rainbow Bridge and get to be with "daddy" and when it is my turn...
