Too many ups and downs

Well just when things were looking up, they went down, but I won't bore you with the details. My staph is better and finished my last pill last night. The eye is still a little black and the bump still there, but luckily nothing serious. It took me 2 weeks to completely clean moms kitchen.

I could use some prayers for money right now. We found a cute little cottage for $22,000, but can't seem to find a way to get the money to pay cash. It needs work, which we can do and it has a little apt in the back. The good news is, it's in the next block from our house in Crowley. If any of you come into some wealth and would like to loan us the money until I get my inheritance---that would be nice. Just kidding of course. I know that if God wants us to have it, He will show us the way. I could move back into our house and Al could move into the little one and I could get my life back. I want to craft so much and have the energy and the desire, but not the time. I will be leaving on the 7th and am so looking forward to a break.

I miss my computer and my friends here, because as it goes, except for my children, my aunts and a few cousins, you're all I have now. I made some mistakes with comments to my siblings and even though I called and apologized, I had my niece call and told me off. Seems apologies don't mean anything, even when my heart meant every word. I've been down this road before, but I am now taking a detour for my own sanity. They don't want to understand my bipolar, so I am labeled "mentally crazy". Tell it to the brain!

I hope everyone who is sick is getting better and prayers are being said for all of you that I know needs them.

I will be back after the 1st of May to pack, so I will have time to post some great finds and some of the beautiful flowers blooming in my dads garden. See you soon, Love and Hugs, Pat

Wow, I was so sorry to hear about your family situation. Maybe things will calm down a bit after awhile when everything isn't so "fresh" as it is now.

Crowley is a nice little town...we used to live near there for many years and we have very good friends from there and know others that are there.

Maybe that is indeed what you are to do for now.

Just pray about it......and I will too. It could work out maybe.
Look for the "peace" in the situation. That is what will help you through it all and to make decisions.

Hey maybe they could "drill" for oil and you could end up with that money for a "cottage"...HA! They are always drilling for oil around these parts so you never know. HA!

You have a GREEAAAAT trip. Get out of here for awhile I say.
Hang in there otherwise.....craft making is on it's way! :~)
I know it's a good outlet for you and you love it.
Be blessed,
