It takes being given seven days to get out to realize that I have entirely too much stuff.  Four closets packed to the brim with junk.  Items that I haven't used in the three years just sitting in there molding away, some things weren't even mine.  I have a bag of clothes that my mom gave to me, a bunch of toys that my sister left, and countless other stuffs.

I've thrown it out, whittled it down and there is still too much.  I've packed more garbage bags that I can count.

To top it all off, there is Shadow's things.  He hasn't even begun to pack and if we even get this efficiency apartment, then his things won't fit.  He thinks he's gonna set up a corner workshop, but there won't be any space.  There is only one closet, where clothes and toys need to go.  I DON'T want clutter, which is all his stuff.

It's just piled haphazardly on the sofa bed, which is going in the garbage.

He can't work anymore, so why does he need scaffolding tools?  Why does he need any tools at all?  The average apartment dweller needs a hammer, a few screw drivers, a tape measure, and a pair of pliers, perhaps, if you're pushing it, you may be inclined to own a drill gun and a wrench.  Anything after this is sheer over kill.  Shadow has stuff that could be sold that could make us money that could go to someone who actually needs tools.

In either case, this place doesn't seem promising at all.  The guy was 3 1/2 hours late, and we waited, then he took all day to email the application, which I just emailed back at around 10pm.  We have to move everything Wednesday at 5pm.  We're running out of time.  I can leave some things at my sister's loft, but not much, I can give her the food, and she's willing to buy our fridge.  After that, I don't know what to do, we have three choices, the shelter, my parents house (for me and the baby only) or Shadow's mom's house for all three of us, or just him.  Then there is my son to worry about who lives with his father who he hates.

I don't know what to do.  No one wants us in the shelter, they're dangerous.  So our options are few.

Now With More Meds

They, meaning my doctor switched me to Stelara.  It's over 10K a shot, of course, I don't have to pay for it.  My skin is clearing up super fast, but my joints are another story.  I still have to take a low dose of prednisone and meloxicam.   I feel like I'm getting better.  At least I need a lot less lotion now, and can definitely walk better.

My hands are doing better too, which allowed me to get some knitting done on a tight schedule.  I had to get 10 wash clothes and 6 pairs of mitts done for a pop up shop that my sister is helping put together.  I'm hoping they sell!

 My sister liked them.  I used whatever yarn I had in my bin.  I really wish I had money to buy some good quality wool to make a sweater and things for the baby.  Perhaps sometime soon.  I'd like a wool sweater for myself as well.

Anyway, after all that work, I get to work on something for myself.  A new pair of socks.  They shall be lovely.  I'm almost at the toe for the first one.


I've already painted my nails a sparkly dark grey in anticipation for Samhain.  I suppose I'll just dress in my witches costume, I don't have funds to put together anything else.  Costumes are so expensive for the fabrics they use these days and my sewing skills are just not good enough to sew my own.  I wish I could though, they do have excellent patterns.

As for the actual night, I have no idea what we're going to do.  It's a Monday evening, so at least there won't be that many crazies out too late.  New baby is only 18 months, so the parade is out of the question.  I suppose I'll just have to figure it out.  We will however be having our feast the night before while Dino boy is home.


I forgot to write about my Quantum Balance Crystal.  I received it from a very nice person on the Healing with Crystals Google + community.  I wear it everyday, when I was worse I would wear it at night.  I think it has helped me immensely.  The one I received is green.  It's actually a lot bigger than I expected too, but because it's cast from resin, it's warm to the touch and isn't cold putting it on like the other four crystal pendents that I wear.

Well, that is all for now.  I'd like to try and finish the toe of my sock tonight.  That will be sweet.
