Thrills in a trio

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Relief!

Whooooaaa!

Thrills in a trio.

One at a time …

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

… is to angelic beings, divine guides, protectors and helpers for bringing me a new place to live.

The deal’s not yet signed; the landlord, however, is holding it for me until we take care of business, make it official in a coupla days.

It’s a tiny studio. Tiiiny. Like 215 sq. feet tiny. But it would be my space. No roommates (but a neighbor above). There’s more to the story — and space; save for another time.

I’m in disbelief. Disbelief that in this extremely tight and competitive housing market that (a) a studio even became available and (b) that it’s mine soon as I sign on the dotted line! Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

Yep, I’m in disbelief. And …

Relief!

I cannot tell you how arduous this search has been! Nearly two months looking. A d-e-a-d dead rental market in December. I fluctuated wildly between panic, resourcefulness, terror of becoming homeless again (a very real possibility in this town of housing crisis/shortage). Struggled to remain optimistic and ward off pessimism and despair.

That I’m assured a place to go before Jan. 31 is a  RELIEF of gigantic proportion! Again, homelessness was biting at me there on the butt. Not a lifestyle I wish to repeat. Not a lifestyle I CAN repeat with two jobs (and one crazy schedule).

A tiiiiny space of my own. Wow! And …

Whoa!

For just yesterday I viewed the tiny studio … and today moved a step toward  confirming.

Then just today two emails arrived.

One from a lady looking for a roommate in a spacious and apparently beautiful home.

And one from a dude who was seeking a roommate two months ago! I’d responded to his ad “way back then” and never heard back. ‘Til today. Guess he’s resumed his search or the roomie he did get is departed.

Short of it is: Either or both of these sudden room-share openings are arrived on one day — unbelievable in this housing market! — and on the very day that the tiny studio becomes mine, unofficially.

Whoa!

Relief!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Circling to the beginning.

How it’ll all ultimately shake down remains to be seen. And see we shall soon enough — with departure from Lord George’s home imminent.

Yes, 2017’s gonna be an amazing year! Amazing for me. For America. Trump’s inauguration is Friday and boy am I celebrating! The country’s mood has shifted dramatically with his win.  That too, another post.

For now, I look assured new digs … {and simultaneously a pullback from the precipice of homelessness}

To the forces above, I can’t say it enough:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
