Hello everyone! I'm back and I have lots of news! I've had lots of changes in my life and I decided to share them with you! You have been my friends for years now online and some of us have even met in real life. I care about you all! So here goes.
I have reached the point where I cannot get by on the money I get from Social Security. It has been so hard to try to stretch the meager amount I get to last all month. When I lost my job, I started supplementing my income with the little online fabric store I had. Well, that quickly dried up because I didn't have more money to put back into the shop. Some months I have less than $100 after utilities and rent for groceries all month (that's if I buy my prescriptions). So, I've decided to just live in my car! That will give me the extra money from utilities, rent, etc. to live on. I found a variety of blogs by people who are living in their vehicles. Instead of RVing they call it CAR-Ving. There are a surprising number of women my age (old) with their dogs! Some of them have really fancy rigs but some just live in their car so there's lots of information out there. They go south in the winter and north in the summer.
It's been a hard decision to make but I've done a lot of research and I think I can do it. I'm going to use my blog like a diary. I don't know if anyone will be interested but I will have a record of how this part of my life is going and my friends can keep up with where I am. Yes, I'm taking Blossom. We've been leading a sedentary life so she will get more exercise and see some of the country. I decided that I can either barely get by or I can take off and have my last great adventure. Until I leave the house for good, I'll write about my preparations for the road. Wish me luck!
