Mirror Mirror On The Wall

I love mirrors.

Growing up, our dining room had a wall that was completely mirrored and when my sister lost her contact lense, we searched all over with flashlights in the blue carpet next to the mirror.  Turned out,the dog ate it, we believe.. but whatever.

Anyway, I put up a wall of mirrors in my last house and it was really cool and made the house look bigger. It also made my dog think there was another dog and bark at his own reflection..

I still have most of those mirrored tiles and am taking them to my new place.  I love the way mirrors change our perception, as well as, make us face reality.

I am still a bit annoyed and sad though; My favorite mirror was broken when being moved and the friend that broke it never apologized or offered to pay for a replacement.  I have found a replacement but, can’t get it yet, because it was a $200. mirror.

Guess who is Not helping me move. this time.

Daily Prompt Integration

I may be posting two posts a day since I joined the Daily Prompt.  Ot, I can add it to my usual post.

Anyway, today’s prompt is the word, DELIVERY.

Moving immediately comes to mind and how I am going to get two places worth of stuff delivered to Arizona.  I have a friend that is going to help. But, I have to look into UHaul pricing and how much to keep the U-Haul for a few days or if it would be cheaper to pay a storage fee.  I can’t afford a Pod, plus, we have two places to fill it from.  

Pardon the italics, I don’t know wbat happened there.

School & Moving

I am taking a free class on Future Learn on Teaching Children English as  2nd Language.  What’s funny is,there are even Teachers Pets on the site.  You can tell by their comments they are kissing up to the teacher and the teacher says “Great Comment” and quotes those people in some  of their upcoming lessons. 

The Buyer is coming to inspect the house today, even though it was purchased ‘as is’. He is an Investor.  Although, I know he will do what he wants, I just hope he doesn’t tear out my beautiful, expensive, floor.  I bought this floor thinking I would live here, forever. It’s to bad I can’t take it with me. Lol. 

Speaking of which, my sister is freaking out about all the stuff we are taking and how small the mobile homes are.

  I am going down from over a thousand square feet to 400. Crazy is losing about 90 square feet.  I am pretty much replacing the furniture in the home with my own.  There are some things I am keeping because.. who knows?  maybe I will move into a bigger place later on..I don’t know what God has planned.  

I guess in some ways, that is how a Hoarder thinks..or, maybe not.  I just know that is one reason to save things.  I have edited quite a bit, though.  I have almost half a closet full of things to take to Savers to donate.

I need to plug my BFF’s Blog again, since she just started.  It’s http://www.Prince12.WordPress.com

She is totally new at this and needs readers.  Her therapist had to drop her due to insurance reasons, so she is going to use wordpress for therapy, as well as, for fun.

Leaving Las Vegas

The move date is set for September 15th or sooner.

I need to be out of here by or before the 8th and will be moving in with Crazy for a few.  It’s going to be interesting because we will have the cats in the bedroom and the dogs in the Living Room. But, it will only be a week, so we will survive.

I don’t feel nervous anymore, but rather, a bit excited.  Also, a bit sad..everything considered.  I will always remember D. and will always pray for him and carry love in my heart.  I know some people can take years to change and some never do.  I wish him all the best.

I know I will miss Vegas, but, this move is good in many ways.

While in Vegas, I have owned a house, fallen in love, gotten married, had my marriage shattered and ended, found a church, was hurt by said church, left the church, found a 2nd, very, welcoming church, adopted cats, adopted a dog, gave up a previous cat (to her dad), gave up the dog ( to my last husband), inherited my last husbands two cats, had animals die, got (and still have) a Betta Fish, seen shows, stayed at hotels, made a BFF, etc. I am sure I could go on.

Las Vegas was my dad”s dream and I hope I’ve made him proud.

Do I really want to move away from here? No. But, this move isn’t about what I want. It’s about what God wants for me.

Sold Before Showing & New Shoes

Once again, it happened with this condo. But, this time the Lockbox had been hooked up for maybe an hour.  

My realtor had two showings scheduled today and one for tomorrow.. But, my counter offer was accepted so the house is sold!  

Now I have to deal with the actual logistics of movimg, which is going to prove interesting.

Also, I saw my doctor today and I am walking!  My foot is healing well and the cast may be off in two weeks.  In the meantime, I am going to wear a shoe over the cast when I walk and will push the chair I use.  I am going to try to walk a little bit every day. I bought a matching shoe to make a pair to make things easier and look better.

  It’s just to bad the shoe isn’t purple like the cast.

A First

When I bought this condo, the lockbox wasn’t even on the door yet.  I had left my 3rd place I looked at, that fell through, and came to see this one.  There was someone already looking and another couple behind me when we came  out from viewing; so, I know it will sell soon….

However;

They just took pictures yesterday and listed it, last night.  The pictures still need to be added to the listing site.

Imagine my excitement when my realtor told me this morning, I have a cash offer, sight unseen from an investor.

It’s the minimum I want, so I countered and we will see.

We may be out of here by next month!

I hope you enjoy joining me and Crazy on this exciting adventure.

HERE WE GO!

Sold in Half Hour.

I listed some furniture on Letgo and Facebook Market Place and most sold fast.  I only marked most things at $10 to get them out of here.  I sold a white dresser with silver colored knobs, a white, tall bookcase and two cat trees.  I also gave my karaoke machine with table + mattress with bedframe (single) to friends who really need them.  I still have one tall, white bookcase for $10. and a really nice cat litterbox holder for $10. It is wooden and looks like a table.

Here’s the thing; some people are so cheap, they want to negotiate $10.00 for the bookcase.  Ot is $20.00 or more at the stores.  That is ridiculous.

I still have the bookcase and litter box cabinet, if interested. I  in Las Vegas, Nevada
