I moved into my new place on Tuesday..

Hi All,

I moved into my new place this Tuesday (April 1st) and have been driving back and fourth moving my stuff into the apartment..it's amazing how even if you've not really got any furniture how much other "stuff" you have!...plus I have tons and tons of boxes of paperwork! When you go through the system of the government with social security disability and housing and more "stuff" all you do is constant paperwork...I hate it but must...it never ends..

All is well and soon I will hopefully be settled and get more rested...right now it's a lot of work but I am getting help when I need it. My kitty Lizzie is pretty freaked out about the move but she will adjust in time. I've got a top queen mattress a charity organization gave to me for free andI put my large organic futon on top of that...so that's my bed for now...low on the floor but comfy and I feel very blessed to have any kind of bed to sleep on! There's so much you feel greatful for when you've lost almost everything....only then will you know what it's like and the things that you don't really "need"...only by losing "things" do you learn and know...it's amazes me what we take for granted....and I've now got a kitchen so I can actually cook my meals and eat better!...WOW!....and privacy and my own bathroom!...I took my first bath in candlelight the other night..only been showering the last year and a half!

Love you all and just letting you know that I've arrived!

Angel Blessings,

Rhi

I am pleased to be the first one here to say Welcome Home, SisSTAR Rhi ... I am so pleased and happy for you and Lizzie. You'll both be settled down soon. Hope you can take pictures and post some when you do your magic with your new apartment! Don't forget that you've got awesome artwork of your own that'd look awesome on your walls! (sorry...just being nosey!)
What a blessing to know you are in your new home.
Love and best wishes from
Your SisSTAR xo

Your journey brings me such awareness and such joy, Rhi. I honestly couldn't be happier for you. Am a bit worried about Lizzie.....be sure you watch her carefully so she doesn't bolt out the door. I've had to watch our 6-month-old kitten like that as she adjusts to the rules of her pampered life here.

Just saw the title of the book you're currently reading. Looks like a good one!

An organic futon? You made that up!

All I can come up with is a lot of straw wrapped in cotton with a bag of seeds for a pillow. Sounds comfy.

Don't forget some flowers for your hair

Rhi, there is an award for you over at my blog. Hope you are getting settled in and feeling cozy!
