Big change for me in 2017

 

Pray For Me

If you been watching my YouTube videos you know that my grandson moved out a few months ago and I setup his room as a office.  I moved stuff into his old room.  Made a lot of changes.
  Yesterday my ex-wife and son, they live in an apartment next door, made a decision they are going to move into this apartment with me. 
  Yes Darlene is going to be living in this apartment with me.  James will also be living here.
 
  I will be telling the apartment office today.  I sign a new lease for the year today if the office has it ready.  Darlene will be telling the office that when their lease is up, two months, that she will be moving out of their apartment.

  The reason for this big change is financial reasons.  Darlene and I are both on Social Security.  The rent each month goes up on the apartment.  Our Social Security benefits do not go up. 
  Now with President Trump in office we are not sure what is going to happen.
  So by sharing this apartment we can cut our costs.  All of us should be better off, at least in a financial way, and have a little extra money each month.
  Darlene and Jimmy have a cat, DD, and DD will be coming over here.  That is the cat that bit Darlene and put her in the hospital.  I am going to have a cat litter box over here.  (Something to look forward too!)

  Right now I pay $715.00 a month for rent.  Not counting the extra charges the apartment has added.  We now pay for trash, water, gas and a pet fee.  We play for the electric bill also.
  Right now I pay about $737.00 a month.  That does not include the electric bill.  When I sign the new lease the rent will go up. 
  It is not because Darlene and Jimmy are moving in here. 
 
  It will be nice to have some extra money free each month.  But living with Darlene, Jimmy and DD for me will not be easy.
  But life is not easy.  I suspect this will be my Purgatorium

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
