There has been so much going on and more stress added to the mix. My daughter (Stephanie) got laid off yesterday. They said it was because the real estate market is so slow, but I really think it had everything to do with Stephanie's health problems. The thing I am most concerned about is her health insurance. And her ability to get and keep a job. Not because of her abilities, but because the obstructions and everything related to them keep happening. She has her resume out and hopefully will find something soon. If nothing else, she will be working temporary jobs.
Because of all this, both of my daughters will be moving in with me -- Bethany until her wedding in March, and Stephanie until she gets on her feet for a while. I had checked with management to see if I might be able to transfer to a 2-bedroom at some point, and they had told me not until March. So we were going to make do in my 1-bedroom. I told management about both girls needing to move in and they said only 2 people are allowed to live in a 1-bedroom. So they are letting me transfer to a 2-bedroom. I will be moving in 30 days. I really like this loft. The only thing I don't love about it is the kitchen is not as big as mine. But that's okay. We will work around that. The bedrooms are bigger than mine, and that is the thing I like least about my present loft. The bedroom is very small. The best thing about the new one is it costs less than what I am paying now! However, there will be some extra expenses with moving -- deposits, etc. The timing on this is not great -- moving right at Christmastime, and it is totally unexpected for me, but that's where we are now.

That's it for tonight. I just wanted to check in.
