Now that all is right with my world and my attitude...the Universe shows me what's up around the corner.
Last summer I had my heart set on moving to Phoenix, AZ and when it didn't work out, I was very depressed. If I honestly look at the circumstances surrounding it though, I would have to admit that I knew it wasn't meant to be.
The flight getting me there landed me stranded in Charlotte, NC for a whole day. I had to buy a new ticket to actually get to Phoenix and I caught pneumonia on the flight back! I think the Universe was trying to tell me something...
So, I've accepted the fact that I must deal with Ohio for a while. I still torture myself with daily e-mails telling me what wonderful real estate is available in Phoenix - why? I have no idea. Call me a sadist.
Yesterday, my girlfriend who lives in Phoenix called me. We've been friends since High School but hadn't talked since her birthday in December. She told me she is house-sitting for a friend who's daughter is sick and so her place is empty.
She has a nice 4 bedroom townhome in a nice complex with a pool. She asked me if I still plan on moving and I explained the situation with custody of the kids and such, but she added that I could stay at her place RENT-FREE for as long as she is at the friend's house.
OK - so NOW what do I do? Generally, I can let things go if it leads nowhere to think about it, but in this case, I can't NOT think about it. Some part of my Soul still feels like it belongs out there.
I could pay off my car and actually have a savings account for a change! Something to seriously think about - but I'm not going to do anything until after May 21st when I go back to court over medical expenses my ex owes me for.
I don't need the added stress.
