Wow I can't believe it's been so long before I've written in my blog... In my defense I have been a very busy momma... So I will do my to catch you all up... I'll do a recap on July & then do one for August...
July was a very busy month, with doctor appointments, counseling appointments, Avery's birthday, my birthday, dentist appointment, & getting my award letter and fulfilling all the requirements for that I have been super busy... Avery had a birthday bash at Chucke Cheeses & a friend of mine came and got us for a small birthday party for me... I should say small surprise party, lol... Yeah she asked what I was doing & I said nothing and she said how about I cook dinner for you tomorrow & I said sure! It was a great time!!!
It's only August 10th & it's been very busy as well... I do believe this trend isn't going to stop due to counseling appointments, more doctor appointments, nurse visits, more tests for Avery, teaching pre-school arts n crafts at Vacation Bible School, workouts, and more...
So the latest is my soon to be ex hubby called to let me know he cheated on me... Yeah, nice.. I guess 8 years meant nothing to him... So sad we have a son & he kicks us to the curb for a one night we had a couple drinks & blah blah blah... Sorry but that's the last straw.... Anyways I've forgiven him and I am moving on... I have signed up for counseling myself after all of this... Also I believe that my son has aspergers... A nurse came out and did an assessment on him and he scored low in multiple areas... His doctor is sending in the referrals on Monday for tests... The roadblock that we might encounter is that the insurance might not want to pay for it all... So that's my prayer! That they will pay for it & Avery will have a diagnosis & he will be able to get the help he needs! I am in the process of getting the paperwork for the divorce & permanent custody of my son... Also Legal Aid might be able to take my case & I won't have to pay for an attorney and such... That would be such a blessing!!! I didn't ask for this, I was the one who was faithful raising our son & taking car of all the responsibilities... He is the one who cheated on me and then had the audacity to tell me that I could cheat on him... In one word WOW!!! So I reported the contact and he is in jail at the moment & looking at 2 years in prison for 4 PV violations... Anyways I just started Rockin Body three days ago & I am feeling great! I can't wait to see my results in a month!!! Well I think that's pretty short, sweet and to the point, have a great August!!!

Hello all, hope your week has been a good one! Mine has been a mixture of good and bad. So we were approved for housing and I have been online looking for a place and calling places. Let me tell you, there is not a whole lot of managers that will take housing in the South Salem, OR area. So on Tuesday, I had an appointment to check out an apartment. We drove up and all I can say is what a small shack. We waited for 10 extra minutes and then we left, the manager never even showed up. So we went to a place she suggested. They didn't have any availabilities and they also didn't take housing. I asked her if she knew anyone who did. And she handed me a sheet of places that had whether or not they accepted housing or not. She then asked me what I was looking for. So I told her I was looking for an apartment, duplex, and/or town home. She went over to her computer and said that she was helping at an apartment complex that accepted housing and she had to go by there anyway. So she showed me the place on the computer. It looked lovely!!! So we waited 5 minutes and then she drove us right there.
She showed us the upstairs apartment first. It was nice, it was carpeted, the bathroom was small, not enough cupboard space, a small master bedroom closet, plenty of kitchen cupboard space, a big fridge and freezer, two balconies, lots of light, vaulted ceilings, and our bedrooms were right beside each other. We then checked out the laundry room that was down stairs. It's four flights of stairs so it's a ways up and down... Not so good with a toddler. So we were walking up the stairs to go checkout the other side where there was a downstairs apartment and as we were walking up I hit my head hard on part of the building. All I can say is ouch! It almost knocked me out... So we finally made it to the downstairs apartment. It was incredible!!!! The floor plan is way different... There's one bedroom right across from the door, which would be my son's room. So there would have to be a door guard on the door so he doesn't open the door and wander outside. Then there's the kitchen with a few less cupboards, a smaller fridge, a nice linen/pantry closet, a nice spacious bathroom with plenty of cupboard space on the bottom, two patios with a small back yard on each, a huge closet in the master bedroom, and two doors that open the master bedroom, a door that leads from the master bedroom to the bathroom and another door that leads to the hallway, and last but not least all hardwood floors. Can you guess which one I loved? Yes your right the downstairs one!!!
So I got all the information on it and it fit into the housing budget! So we went to the agency filled out the application. I submitted all the other paperwork today that they called about, so I should hear something on Monday! The way it all happened is God ordained!!!! I know we got the place, just waiting for the agency to confirm it. So then what's left is housing to do there inspection and it will pass in Jesus name!!!! Then after it passes I give my 14 day notice and we're outta here, whoohooo!!!!
So I have been downsizing and getting rid of a ton of stuff that I don't want to take with me when we move. I have been packing in Faith, knowing that it is just a matter of time before we move and I want to be ready!!! I also got another TADVS grant that['s good for 90 days but I won't need that many days. I believe we will be moved out by the end of this month!!!! So that is what I have been up to this week!!!! Have a great weekend all!!!!!!

It's only My 6th & I have sooo much to share with you all!!!! So here I go.... As you know I had my housing appointment & was waiting for a letter in the mail that would be here no later than Monday April 29th. Well Monday came and there was no letter, so I thought it would come on Tuesday. Tuesday came and no letter, so I called housing and left a message. My housing worker called me Wednesday morning to let me know that we did qualify for housing and gave me the time and directions to go pick up my voucher!
May 3rd through May 5th was Womens Retreat! So we left on Friday May 3rd at 4:30pm & arrived at 5:30pm. We got out our luggage & made our way to find our room & check in. The place was beautiful and it wasn't far from Silver Creek Falls! The food was awesome & so were the staff!!! The owner was an elderly woman who has been there for decades. There were 30 of us women who went. The name of the retreat was "Walk into the Holy of Holies." Our speaker & fellow sister In Christ was Corrine Stanley. She was awesome!!! For free time I hiked 3 miles at the falls with some gals and I did the zip line! I had a blast!!! I am refreshed, rejuvenated, restored, and I am Spiritually filled!!!!! We got home at about 2pm & my son came home at about 4:30pm. I sure did miss him!
Now it's Monday May 6th, and it's been a very productive day so far!!! I have called several places today & most of them do not accept housing. And the ones that did accept housing were full. I did however come across one on Craigslist that does accept housing & I have already made an appointment to see the place tomorrow!!! We will see what happens tomorrow. I also found a couple of other places that do accept housing but I had to leave messages. So we will see if they are still available. I know that God has a place & He will lead us to it, I just have to be patient... Please keep praying, thanks!
So that's what has been going on. I will update you as I find things out. Have a great day!!!!
