hello there. sorry i have been mia lately. i haven't even posted my weekly challenge words for the linked 52 project. i have just been down a bit lately. would you like to join me in my pity party? i live in a travel trailer and some days i just get down about it. when i am busy it's ok but the days where i don't have a ton to do and i just sit around wallowing in my houselessness i just want to "as wendy so eloquently put it" stab myself in the eye with a fork!

i miss having my own home
i miss sending my kids to their rooms when they are in trouble
i miss beautiful open spaces to take pictures of my family in their natural environment.
i miss windows
i miss light
i miss doing my laundry when i want without someone being very concerned that i haven't done it in over a week
i miss my bathtub
i miss cupboards and places for everything
i miss my kids all having a bed (bonnie sleeps on the couch)
i miss a time when i could go more than a day or 2 without stubbing a toe
i miss real tv
i miss alone time with my husband (because face it...in 250 sq feet, you're NEVER alone)
i miss staying in my pajamas all day and not caring because nobody saw me

OK enough complaining. I know this is temporary but every once in a while i just need to vent, and since you are here reading this i assume you care. pray for me and i the next time i post it's not from the hospital because i stabbed myself in the eye with a fork!

I'm so sorry K. Are you building a home? Why are you in a trailer? Whatever the reason I feel for you! I would feel that way too--just the longing to be rested in real space. I will pray that you can find some peace and maybe some time with your hubby. :)

LOL!!! Okay, can we have your husband's email so we can ask him to keep the forks away from you?

Chin up! I can totally relate. I'll be homeless in a few short weeks and living in a hotel out of my suitcase for about a month or so. In the meantime, we'll pray for you because we care like that!!! ; )

It's funny you posted this on my birthday because I was having a HUGE pity party that day (Just ask Andrew) I felt like nobody cared that it was my birthday or that I'm not special enough - I mean, my own parents didn't even call!!
So I will join your pity party anytime. I know what you're going through - I lived with my inlaws (and great grandma) for 2 1/2 years with no car. So chin up and just keep swimming :)
