FIRES AND CRAZIES

FIRES AND CRAZIES AND I AM NOT EXAGGERATING. WE WENT TO TAKE THE DOGS OUT TO USE THE BATHROOM AND THIS IS WHAT WE SAW. ONE OF THE CRAZIES (AND IT IS A FACT..I FOUND OUT THAT THE STATE PAYS FOR A ROOM FOR THEM AND COMES AND PICKS THEM UP AND TAKES THEM TO THE FOOD PANTRY). THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO COOK OR ANYTHING IN THEIR ROOM SO DOES THAT MEAN THEY CAN LIVE ON  BREAD AND BUNS???
LAST NIGHT WE WERE EATING SPAGHETTI AND BILLY WAS NEAR THE WINDOW WITH THE CURTAIN OPEN A LITTLE SO HE CAN LOOK OUT AND THE ONE CRAZY CAME BY THE WINDOW AND SAW HIM.   A FEW MINUTES LATER HE WAS POUNDING ON OUR DOOR AND ASKING BILLY IF WE COULD GIVE HIM SOME SPAGHETTI BECAUSE HE HADN'T EATEN ALL DAY. THEN HE COMES BACK A LITTLE LATER WITH PACKAGE OF NOODLES IN HIS HAND (FROM THE FOOD PANTRY) AND TELLS BILLY HE SHOULD COOK THEM FOR HIM BUT HE WANTS BUTTER ON THEM...NO SAUCE ETC ETC. WE CAN'T GET HIM TO STAY AWAY FROM OUR ROOM
LAST NIGHT WE WENT OUT WITH THE DOGS AND CHECKED FIRST TO MAKE SURE THE MAN NEXT DOOR ISN'T OUT WITH HIS DOG (HE IS ABUSIVE TO DOGS) AND WHEN WE GOT OUT IN THE PARKING LOT HERE COMES HIS DOG RUNNING WITH A ROPE ATTACHED.&..LOOSE, AND I KNOW HE (OWNER) DID IT ON PURPOSE.... OF COURSE OUR DOGS WERE PULLING HARD ON THE LEASH AND WE COULD BARELY HANG ON TO THEM AND THE JERK (MAN) JUST KEPT WALKING REAL SLOW. SORRY BUT I LOST IT THEN AND WAS YELLING AT HIM TO GET HIS DOG AWAY FROM OURS. HE WAS JUMPING ALL OVER BIANCA AND ANNIE AND THEY ARE SMALLER THAN MAGGIE AND CALLI. THE DOG JUST WANTED TO PLAY AND I WAS REALLY SCARED HE WOULD HURT THEM PLUS IT COULD CAUSE ANNIE TO HAVE A SEIZURE AND THAT COULD KILL HER.
 I PULLED OUR DOGS BACK IN THE ROOM AND ALL THE OWNERS HERE AT MOTEL DID WAS TELL HIM TO TAKE CARE OF HIS DOG. HE TAKES HIS DOG OUT BACK AND THEN DOESN'T CLEAN UP AFTER HIM. BILLY GOES OUT ONCE OR TWICE A DAY AND PICKS UP THE POOP FROM ALL OF OUR DOGS AND EVEN THOUGH MOTEL OWNER TOLD MAN THAT HE HAS TO CLEAN UP AFTER HIS DOG...HE JUST REFUSES. BILLY PICKS IT UP SINCE HE HAS STEPPED IN IT AND ALSO BECAUSE MY DOG'S COULD PICK UP PARASITES AND I CAN'T AFFORD ANOTHER VET BILL.
THIS STORY GOES ON AND ON WITH DAILY HAPPENINGS BUT I WON'T GO ANY FARTHER...YOU GET THE MESSAGE.
THEREFOR I AM AFRAID TO GO OUTSIDE FOR FEAR ONE OF THEM WILL COME OUT AND EVEN HURT MY DOGS. THERE IS A CRAZY LADY A FEW ROOMS DOWN AND SHE CALLEED 911 YESTERDAY AND THEY SENT AMBULANCE BECAUSE SHE SAID SOMEONE STABBED HER CROTCH. ANOTHER ONE IS AT OUR DOOR WANTING A RIDE TO DOLLAR STORE AND SHE COULD BE GOING TO GET DRUGS FOR ALL WE KNOW (AND WE ARE NOT A TAXI SERVICE) ANOTHER ONE COMES AND WANTS A RIDE TO LIQUOR STORE...WHAT DON'T THESE CRAZIES AND DRUNKS UNDERSTAND..THE ANSWER IS "NO" (MOTEL OWNERS WILL RENT TO ANYONE WE HAVE FOUND OUT....
WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID I AM TO THE POINT OF BEGGING FOR SOMEONE TO RENT US A HOUSE. I HAVE LOST 20 POUNDS IN 2 MONTHS OF BEING HERE. HAVE TO TAKE SLEEP AIDS TO FALL ASLEEP JUST TO GET WOKE UP WITH YELLING OUTSIDE OR SOMEONE POUNDING ON DOOR.
MY DOGS GOT SICK BECAUSE IT WAS SO HOT IN HERE AND I TALKED TO THE VET ABOUT THEM AND THEY ARE VERY DEPRESSED.
I WENT TO DR TODAY AND THERE ARE A LOT OF TESTS AND EYE SURGERY I NEED BUT SHE SAID TO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT UNTIL WE FIND A PLACE TO LIVE. SHE CALLED IN A SCRIP FOR ME TODAY FOR DEPRESSION AND SAID IT MIGHT HELP MY NECK AND BACK PAIN TOO.
I HAVE MONEY SAVED UP FOR A HOUSE (ABOUT $600 MONTH OR EVEN UP TO 700 IF I HAVE TO AND I DON'T CARE HOW FAR AWAY WE HAVE TO GO. I AM TRYING TO SELL SOME MORE STUFF TO MAKE SURE I HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO RENT A U HAUL TO GO 100 MILES IF NEED BE.
I WILL BE RUNNING A SPECIAL FOR MY COOK BOOK AND ALSO MY HAND MADE PET BEDS TO HELP THE TRUCK RENTAL. I HAVE 3  ITEMS ON EBAY AND HOPE TO LIST MORE....DIRT CHEAP... ALSO HAVE SOME MORE FURNITURE FOR SALE THAT WE CAN DO WITHOUT ON CRAIGS LIST.
I WOULD LIKE TO ASK ANYONE THAT LIVES WITHIN 100 MILES OF WHERE WE ARE (ROCKFORD / WINNEBAGO) TO PLEASE LOOK FOR A RENTAL FOR US. I WILL NOT LIVE IN ROCKFORD OR FREEPORT AND REALLY PREFER WISCONSIN.... WE PREFER RURAL BECAUSE OF THE DOGS AND MOST TOWN CITY LIMITS ONLY ALLOW 3 DOGS..I CAN NOT GET RID OF 1 DOG. I AM AT MY WITTS END AND AT THE POINT OF JUST WISHING I COULD GO TO SLEEP AND STAY ASLEEP....THE ONLY THING THAT KEEPS ME GOING AND PRAYING FOR A PLACE TO LIVE IS MY PETS. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD END UP LIVING LIKE THIS AT ALMOST 72 YEARS OLD. I KNOW PEOPLE SAY YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL FOR HAVING A PLACE TO LIVE AT ALL, BUT I WOULD CHALLENGE THEM TO COME AND LIVE HERE FOR 30 DAYS (WITH THE PETS AND A SPOUSE THAT HAS THE ONSET OF DEMENTIA)  AND THEN TELL ME HOW I SHOULD BE THANKFUL
SORRY FOR SUCH A LON
G AND GLOOMY POST BUT MY BLOGGER FRIENDS ARE THE ONLY ONES I HAVE TO TURN TO NOW...THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE STUCK BY ME THROUGH ALL OF THIS AND LISTEN TO ME VENT

Oh Nancy I can not imagine - well I can and I don't like it one bit.
I feel so bad for you and your animals - they do stress easily and you have been moving around...I pray for them as well as you.
If I knew of something I'd certainly let you know.
Blessings and keep your head up kiddo.
Have a happy Memorial weekend.
Karen
