    I stopped in at my parents place on the weekend. Took a quick jog from where I'm staying to their place with my elevation mask on (damn thing nearly killed me!). No one was home but I went down into my room. I had barely noticed the smell of mold before after being there for a few days but after being in an extremely clean house the smell was damn near unbearable. CS comes home tomorrow but the old roommates haven't finished moving out of the house yet. His sister in law had invited me to stay at the house for the summer so I may take them up on it.

    So far in this house a few major things have happened healthwise.

    My sleep- damn near perfect. Getting up before the alarm clock every day (around 5:10am) and springing out of bed: no parlor tricks, no supplements, no grounding... hell, I'm sleeping on a couch. To boot I'm waking up fully ready to go! No drowzyness or anything!

    My digestive health- absolutely outstanding. I haven't played with eggs yet again but I haven't had a runny poop since 2 days into staying at CS' place. Everything has been healthy and productive!

    My appetite- Since moving back into my parent's place I had stopped eating breakfast. My dad is on early shift in the morning and I hate using their kitchen as it is but refuse to use it if my dad is in the vicinity. Since there is no accountability at CS' place about sharing the kitchen I've started making/eating breakfast again. And packing lunch. And making killer dinners instead of the mediocre heaps of food I've been making and eating in the basement at my parents.

    Starting to pray harder for work. I'm expecting to hear from PI by the end of the week. Hoping for good news there. Then I'll be ready to move out into my own space again.

    Really praying that this job works out for you and that you'll be in your own place really soon! Otherwise maybe you should take up the offer on staying at that other place. It doesn't sound healthy in any way to be at your folks house!! And mold is BAD - don't mess with it! Get a tent and stay in the backyard since it is summer

    Thinking of you and with you in prayers for the New job and finding a better place to stay near term. I remember during my divorce (I was 37) I spent two years hopping from place to place, living wherever friends would take me in or at cheap hotels or with various members of my family. I spent several nights sleeping in my car at one point. It sucked...Big time.

    Having a safe place to live, where you feel at home and welcome is among life's most important things, I think. I hope you get that soon!

    Thanks Coll and Dave!

    The waiting continues. Friday can't come fast enough. Til then though I've gotta continue the hunt for new work.

    I pick up CS from the airport tonight. I'm half going to miss being the caretaker of the pups but at the same time I can use a break. They are cute but they can take a lot out of me! They were fighting over a new ball I bought them last week this morning- but they were doing it on the beanbag chair so on top of squabbling they were really loud- cute to wake up to- just not before the alarm clock. I set the alarm for 20 minutes later today hoping to sleep in since I didn't have to take them to daycare. That didn't seem to matter

    Going to get greedy on prayer requests here. Today I'm supposed to hear from PI as to whether or not they have a job for me. Please pray for me!
