I need to record this down since I am such a scattered brain nowadays.
I have moved out of the home I shared with DB last weekend. Reason???? Guess my readers are damn curious to know.
I am done enabling this fella. Some would say, Amen, it’s about damn time. Yeah I know, I should have done it earlier. Well, I did it. What put me on the full trottle to haul ass was the debts I have to pay where my salary is garnished and saving accounts with held by IR*S
However, before I moved out, I was stressed to the max from looking for a place to rent, where to put Chase or to bring him along which then adds extra to the rent check.
I then remembered what my friend K whom I met during bible studies and she helped and guided me during this year Lenten Retreat. She told me if ever I’m ready to move out from my house, I can always stay with her and her hubby, M, in their basement which is fully furnished.
After checking around a few apartments, looking at my current and future take home pay, I would not be able to pay for gas. So, I “knocked” on K’s door, which I pretty much sent her an email and asked her for that favor.
She replied right away I and Chase are more than welcome to stay with them till I can get back on my feet.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
Now that Chase and I are out of the house, I’m happier, less stress and having a great time with my new room (house) mates. Chase took a while to get use to the new environment though.
Before we left the house and his master (DB), Chase was stressed to the max, too. He had major diarrhea for 2 days. How? He saw me moving stuff, packing up my bags and boxes, moving them to the car, disappearing for a few hours with those bags and I didn’t allow him to come with me then that weekend (Fri, Sat and part Sunday). His diarrhea started on Friday, just plain old burst water pipes. It was bad.
When K, M and I went to pick him up on Sunday evening, he was really distress because :-
- 1. He is going into a different truck.
- 2. DB was not coming with us.
- 3. He was looking for DB in the truck.
- 4. His bucket of food, treats, leash, frisbee were in the back with him.
So yeah, that boy was trying to get away from K and M’s home after we got him out of the truck. Throwing the frisbee for him has a temporary effect on him. Once I said “Let’s go inside” he got all confused and ran to the front of the house and was practically shaking. He didn’t eat for 2 days.
I got some anti-anxiety and diarrhea meds for him on Tuesday. I even took Monday and half of Tuesday off just to make be with him in the new place. The meds work great.
He is now on the mend. He is having a wonderful time with K and M. He really respects them, listens to their commands in a heart beat. But once I’m in the picture, all hell breaks loose.
So, that’s the nutshell of what had happened to my life so far. Thanks be to God for bringing these friends into my life.
Will write more later.
