I am chocked. We went to get some good walking shoes for me and I was actually able to find some which fitted me right off the shelf. This is the first time I haven't had to go from store to store, trying pair after pair of shoes. I've never been able to do that. Of course we had to pay more than I have ever payed for a pair of shoes, but I have the feeling it will be worth it. :) Now I just want to walk, but dh says I need to wear them at home for a couple of days, so I can walk 'em in.

This possible Option Tax Revote in Linn County, Iowa is yet another case of:" We'll not accept the results, but keep putting it on the ballot until we get the result we want."

*sigh* Another sleepless night. I was in bed when my mind started to race, trailing all the possible and impossible outcomes my immigration case might or might not get. I'll be a basketcase before this is said and done. Hubby didn't think they would accept a lookalike sockpuppet as a substiture for me when the interview comes up sometime later this year (hopefully).

I absolutely love to watch HGTV and get ideas I know I'll never be able to realise in a rental setting, but why does all shows have to deal with expensive remodelings or building from scratch which not many people are able to afford anyway? For once I would love them to focus on building new homes below $100.000 or even better below $90.000 which isn't part of a habitat for humanity project they take on for the good advertising value. Nothings is wrong with habitat for humanity. I think it's a great idea, but not everyone has an income low enough to participate, but doesn't have an income high enough to buy a basic home of their own. I would love to see them deal a little bit more with those people who isn't poor enough neither rich enough if you know what I mean.
In case you hadn't guessed it I'm having one of those days where I'm really, really tired of rented apartment living where you cannot do anything to make it feel a little bit more like home and get things to fit or put those things away which doesn't fit. I'm tired of listening to people spinning their wheels and burning tires in the parking lot, while listening to the neighbors upstairs stomping around like elephants. I'm tired of having a bathroom which doesn't have any shelving to place stuff on. Since we moved here, we have had our toiletries in a basket sitting in the hallway. I'm tired of having an AC which can only cool off less than half the apartment and I'm tired of a kitchen which has the amount of counterspace you need a guidedog to find. Since we moved in we haven't been able to use all 4 burners on our stove and the closet doors in the office has yet to be fixed (with the result of kitties trying to climb the mountain of boxes). This is by far still the best place dh and I have lived together, but it is starting to get on my nerves. I hope that getting a workpermit and permanent residence will mean more changes than just a change in my legal status, but with the way things have been going I do not have any hopes. :(

Why is it, that just as soon as I took the websets offline I get loads of ideas for new stuff?

This seems to be the year of happenings for me, but I am not totally sure I like dealing with so much all at the same time. One particular thing I've been waiting for to happen for a very long time (not the child issue) will finally start happening this coming monday. It will be a nervewrecking time with a lot of uncertainties, doubt, frustrations and all of those kind of emotions. Hopefully the outcome will allow me to finally get a life other than the one consistng of sitting in this apartment day in and day out, not knowing where the future will take me/us.
Please cross your fingers, say your prayers, light your candles or what you feel like doing for a good and speedy outcome for dh and I. It will deeply appreciated.

I am having a serious problem these days. I seem to be breaking everything I touch. This weekend it was one of our ovensafe glashdishes and today I manged to break two drinking glasses. Made dh ask me to try and not break anything while he was at work. I wonder if it has anything to do with all the changes I've been going through lately or if it's just plain bad luck?

I am feeling so very tired this morning. Almost like I was run over by a fright train during the night, but dh says the kitties have been quiet. Guess I just wasn't totally ready to wake up when I did. Hopefully I'll wake up during the day because there's things I need to get done and distances which needs to be walked :)

I think I almost have figured out what to do with everything at SMG Design. The websets will be taken offline, since I've kinda lost interest in doing them and they were never the stringest asset to SMG Design anyway. Most of the goodies have been moved to New Horizons and then I'll prbably give the PSP Tubes their own page/site. It's kinda sad restructuring like this, because I have put so much work into SMG Design, but if I'm not to lose interest completely I need these changes, and I kinda feel good about them because it looks like it might be easier for me to handle :)
