Upside down, but hanging in there...

Whew! What a ride this last 2 weeks has been! Everything went a lot haywire and for a little bit of time I truly felt that nothing would be right for a long, long time. But I have a place to sleep, the cats are safe, and my stuff is in storage, I'm still moving to a new place, but it's a different new place and it will be ready on Saturday. I don't really want to go into a lot of details, so I'll just say that there was a breach in contract, a really unstable person, and a lot of scrabbling to keep the pieces from falling to the ground. Now things are almost done and it will be alright. The people who came together to help me out are fantastic and there is no way I could hug them enough for the help they've given. A huge shout out to J & J for helping with the physical task of moving my stuff out of the apartment, into the mobile home, out of the mobile home, and into the storage. Another one to C, who has opened her home to me. To the Asheville Humane Society for providing my cats a safe place to sleep until my apartment is ready. And, to another J, who made me smile with a simple invitation to hang out at the pool. These people are super awesome. Also to The Mobile Mechanic for replacing the rotors and pads on my car (holy moly, they were terrible!).



In the middle of all of this, I started my fundraiser! I'm really excited by the perks that I'm offering to you all and I'll be adding a few more with time. I'll be spending this weekend getting things settled in the new place (for those who know anything about Asheville, it's on Merrimon Ave and is walking distance to Trader Joe's, GreenLife, and lots more) and after that I'll be working my fingers off to get new items into the Perks list for you.

If you have a moment, please check it out and share it with your friends. I can't wait to come out and see you guys!
