It seems everyone is getting a new home these days around here. We got Ferret comfortably moved into Monte’s house so he is no longer homeless. I then drove him down to Wal-Mart to buy some sheets, pillows, and a warm comforter for his single bed in his new room. He seemed very pleased with his new accommodations. “Just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas,” I thought as I helped him put the sheets on his new, soft, and warm bed. I was just tickled pink to see him so upbeat and happy. His mood has been absolutely dour these past few weeks. Sitting out in winter’s cold living in a tent will certainly put a damper on your mood if you are not a camping fanatic like me.
I then drove over to my new house to check on the new roof the workers were putting on. They had finished the work and I now have a brand new roof upon my new humble abode. They are also almost finished with my laundry/utility/smoking room as well with only the stairs and the backdoor to add. I so wish I had my camera early so I could take some pictures and put them up to share. Things are looking great and I am on track to be moved in around the New Year. If you have been reading my journaling for a long time (years), then you know this has been one helluva long, drawn out process. I thought getting a new home would never come to fruition due to a lack of funds and various setbacks.
Christmas is going to be very nice this year because of this gift from my father. My mortgage is paid off. I have lots of nice furniture that was once my grandmother’s. I will even have a brand new dishwasher, stove, fridge and also a used set of a washer and dryer my brother and his wife are giving me. It is hard to believe that three Christmases ago my home was a tent in the woods over in Waverly, Alabama and my family was barely even talking to me and actively shunning me. I can’t wait to move in and will often just drive the short distance over there to walk around inside and outside to admire my new house. It will certainly get you into the Christmas spirit.
