If you don't know what I'm talking about, read the blog below. A few answers about "The situation" - mom's will left the house to us equally. My brother(the executor) says the estate can no longer pay the insurance or house taxes, neither can I. My brother gave me $100 a month while taking care of mom - there was nothing else he could do from Missouri. The estate gave me $7,000 when mom died. I am mad, but at the same time a little resigned. I may have found a home for Neely Shae. Another answer - I can't afford four cats, nor would I take four of them to a one bedroom apartment. There's a small part of me that's kind of relieved. No more watching the house fall down around me, no more worrying about who's going to mow the lawn, etc.

Anyway, while I've been contemplating everything, I've discovered YouTube. So here's something else to look at.

I know that you have conflicting emotions right now. 4 cats in a one bedroon is feasible, but I understand what you're saying. If I wish I lived closer so I could give Neely-Shae a home. I'm praying for you, sweetie. Hugs.

well that sucks, the video is no longer available. Guess I'll get around to taking it out eventually.

Bailey Stewart said...

now it says it is - so I guess you have to give it two tries?

Brandy said...

Ack! I just reread my comment. I MEANT, I WISH I lived closer. I was thinking "if only I lived closer". Just so you know, my prayer and hugs are with you.

That's a bit clearer, thank you for going into more detail when you probably didn't really feel like it.

If you're resigned to it, then perhaps this is what you need, a fresh new start and something to build on rather than, as you say, watching something you can't really afford fall down about your ears.

If you've found a home for Neely Shae, good luck and I'm sure she'll be happy there. But if it falls through, I wouldn't panic about 4 cats in a small place either, but that's entirely down to how you feel and how hyper/outdoor the cats are.

My heart goes out to you. Hopefully you'll find a huge silver lining in this hard time. Sending big hugs to you. Hang in there sweetie!

I loved the video!

Love the video :) You know I'm thinking of you. It's a difficult situation and I support whatever you decide to do next. Hugs!

I know most of us are resistant to change - I hate it - but perhaps a new start will be good for you. As you say, there will be no more worrying about the house. It will give you the chance to make a fresh start and do what *you* want.

That video is the BEST! Always gives me a laugh. (It was the cat one, right? I saw it yesterday, before it disappeared..)

I'm so sorry about all the upheaval in your life!
