On The Move...

HI Everyone,

Right now its about 7:30pm on Wednesday. I don't know if I told you or not but the owner of this house told us on Monday that she is moving back in here and we now have to be out by the 30th.
WHAT!! That's about a week.

I spent the past 2 days panicked and stressed and we have both been wondering what the Holy Heck are we gonna do now?? We realized that we are not gonna be able to buy a house at all for now because of the Short sale we did almost 2 years ago.

Tuesday and today we went and looked at a bunch of houses to rent. Apartments have a weight limit if they accept dogs so a house was our only option with a yard. We found one in Rancho Cucamonga today. Kind of small 1100 sq ft, but big enough for us and it has a 2 car garage to store our stuff that won't fit.

I filled out a online app and pd a deposit to hold it and hopefully by tomorrow we will hear if it was approved. The house was a foreclosure that a investment company bought and fixed up so its clean. I am hoping we can start moving this weekend.

Oh by the way - he did not pass the loan exams. We are both so stressed - feel like complete poopy - and no sleep for either of us. Well he can take it again later after we move but has to pay again.

You know me - a trooper. Always eat good no matter what is going on. I don't have any more time right now. I have to go do something useful. I've been carrying stuff down stairs so it will be easier when we move. Hubby is working nights Tu, Wed, Thur and then has Fri-Sun off. So I am alone right now, at least I have my Furry Besties.

I did make time to walk last each night - not as much as I would like but some.

Someone please message me and do a guest blog for me on my cell or email... I feel bad but might not get to blog for a few days.

Big Hugs - Thanks for listening.

  3. Rosalie, what a mess life can be sometimes!! I can feel for you completely because I'm so stressed about my Mom right now. Why is all this happening to us?!! Sounds like you will have a whirlwind, hectic, hardworking week coming up. The plus is that you found a house to rent so quickly! Once that's approved you'll feel a bit better. Can your sister help you with the move maybe? Only blog when you can, we are pulling for you.

  4. Our little blogging group is so stressed right now. I can feel it through the pages. I know you are at the end of your rope...but tie a know and hang on! Something good HAS to happen!! Sending hugs and love! XO

    1. that should be "tie a knot"...although tie a 'know might work too! Hang tough!!

  5. Wow! that's stressful to the max. I really hoping for some good stuff going your way soon...like right now.

  6. On September 1st, you will be able to take a breath. I have Faith in you that you will get through this. It certainly wasn't what you planned, life is funny that way....NOT!!!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
