Ugh........ Just letting you know I am still alive. Not having loads of fun right now, trying to find a place to live and a vehicle so I don't have to keep walking EVERYwhere. It is fairly chilly (especially for a wimpy "Florida" girl) and it keeps RAINING. And then RAINING some more! Businesses are all done at 4:30 or 5, so I can't get anything accomplished after work. I'm tired and cold - and fairly cranky. Right now work is the least of my concerns - it sounds quite easy so far - but of course I could be sadly mistaken.... After all, I am still only in my second week and don't have to do a whole lot. On top of it all, my internet monthly allocation for "downloading" was up on the 7th day I had it (yeah!), so I am probably going to pay an arm and a leg until I find out if I can upgrade my plan at all.. (DOn't ask me how internet works in NZ - I couldn't tell ya!)
Oh well. It was to be expected. I knew I'd have challenges and the bottom line is, Bruce and I chose to do this. It will get easier. I will forget how much I struggled with some things. I will eventually eat a home-cooked meal again. And, on Friday (homeless or not!), a new friend I've made is taking me on their monthly family "bar crawl" with them!! It promises to be an evening of laughter, some good beer, and lots of Karaoke (only definitely NOT by me!) I could use some fun. Especially since it'll be my birthday and I won't have anyone here with me to celebrate it. *looking very pathetic and fishing for sympathy here*
I miss you all. A LOT! Be patient with me. Eventually I'll feel more settled and maybe I'll even find my smile somewhere.
