Today it became official: I now own a mobile home.
Lock, stock, and barrel.
It still doesn’t feel real.
Someone is living there illegally, so I started procedures
to evict them today. Once they are out, we can move into our new (to us) home!
My daughter is sad to be leaving her friends, but I am

another move and another school, but after this we would be settled for a

save a few dollars here, enough to hire an attorney should my ex decide to
start harassing me again. I would have the money to stand and fight
instead of run.
It is all

I got a camp stove it would be all good.
What do you think of the place?
