High Hopes for the New Year: Update, Helping Those in Need

27 Mar

Back just a few months ago, when everyone was making New Year’s Resolutions, I posted a blog called “High Hopes for the New Year“. So far, so good.

Here is the update of what I’ve collected so far. It doesn’t look (or feel) like much, but the goal isn’t to save the world. The goal is to inspire others, and to even help a little bit. Something, after all, is better than nothing.

The items I’ve collected, January – March:

  • Pads
  • Socks
  • Tampons
  • Razors
  • Instant Mashed Potatoes
  • Brown Gravy (2)
  • Lipton Noodle Soup
  • Hormel Compleats Smokey Bacon Parmesan Rigatoni
  • Motts Cinnamon Apple Sauce
  • Brown Rice
  • Canned Mandarin Oranges
  • Canned Cut Green Beans
  • Canned Sliced Peaches
  • Campbells Vegetable Soup
  • Chef Boyardee Beefaroni

That is 15 items, representing 15 trips to the store over 3 months. That is 5 trips per month to the grocery store. By the end of the year, that will equal 60 items.

I would still love to have someone join me! The rules are simple: 1) items have to be generally non-perishable, 2) you have to buy something each time you go to the grocery store, 3) items don’t need to be large or extravagent

 

Death of a Roommate: One Month Later

24 Sep

First of all, this isn’t going to be a life update. I will save that for when everything is finalized and done.

It has actually been a little over a month, but I haven’t really had the time to post an update. In this month (actually 6 weeks on Friday), I lived with a couple I am friends with for a week, and the remainder of the time I have been living with another good friend (bless his heart for putting up with me for so long). My doggy and my kitties are currently living with my parents.

It has been interesting, but definitely not bad.

The reason I haven’t been living in my house is because the insurance company hasn’t come to an agreement on how much they will spend to repair the damages. Three of the four companies who have done quotes for my landlord have given an estimation of 50,000 dollars in repairs to make the house liveable again. Included in that cost are things like carpet replacement, air filtration, and removing asbestos they found in the ceiling (really, universe…really!?).

It almost feels like I am living in some strange dream when I think of how long it has been since I have been misplaced. And sometimes I don’t even know if I really want to go back to reality.

Well, that’s all I have for you…at least until I update you on my actual life, which will come later. And until then, I don’t suppose I will be blogging much more than I currently am.

See you soon [hopefully].
