I think I have a plan and I hope it works. We have been trying to figure out a way to go up North to look for a place to call home but not having much luck with wanted ad in newspapers this time.
When you put a phone number in the news paper it draws attention for places it was not intended for. Now we are getting calls from companies trying to sell stuff...even ATT telling about the new great deal they have going on. What don't these people understand..I am looking for a house so why would I want to talk to them about whatever they are selling.
I really am trying to stay positive and look at the bright side but so far it is staying very gloomy.
I really don't want to ride up there by myself to look around and have to make decisions myself and if Billy and I both go we could take the dogs but would have to leave the cats home alone. I would have NO one to check on them because I do not have any close friends here and just don't feel comfortable letting anyone have the keys to my house.
I think the cats would be O K since 2 of them are Farrel and the other one just stays in the guest room 24/7 unless we go in there and carry her out.
I think if we leave a lot of food available and more litter boxes and a lot of water they would be O K for 3 days and 4 max. Could even leave the lid on the toilet up if necessary (we don't have anything in there that would hurt them) but of course I would worry about them the whole time.
We would stay at the motel in an apt where my son lives and look around every day while there and maybe find something if we got lucky. It would be hard with the dogs unless we decide to leave the 2 Labs boarded at the one vet office (and of course I would then worry about them) My dogs have a very secluded life here..no one walks by our house and if someone just rides a bike past our house on the road they go crazy barking. There are a lot of people that would walk by our room at the Motel so they would bark constantly and that could be a problem.
And again..there is no one I could leave them with since they do take off when they get a chance and Maggie is a food thief. They have us trained but no one else could handle them.
They do have some fairly nice apartments at the Motel complex where my son lives and if push came to shove we could just pack up and put our furniture in storage and stay there for a while until we found something.
It is hard to ask anyone for advice since it is impossible to be in our shoes.
Just not sure which way to go but will keep praying that the Lord will lead us in the right direction.
This is what keeps me trying
