|My kitchen cupboards|
I have ot sell my house soon, so I'm painting my little dollhouse to match my cupboards.

I've had some really bad financial news and will have to sell the house soon, so we're enjoying the deck and yard as much as possible.
I'm not sure what we're going to do next, but something will come up. I'm hoping I'll have enough money left over after selling the house to pay off my bills and buy a trailer in a trailer park, so we'll still have a yard. I need a yard, with the dogs, and the apartment rentals in town are outrageous; they all want to charge a ton of money (for the area), and discrimante against smokers and pet owners. I'm not a smoker, but I have dogs and birds and fish, so I'm thinking a trailer may be our best bet for affordable pet friendly housing. I'm just not sure how much it will cost to heat a trailer in Northern Ontario. Lots of people live in trailers, so it must be possible. The one I want to see has a wood stove, so there'd still be heat in case of electricity failure. I've heard that trailers burn quickly though, so that's kind of scary.
I wish I was healthy enough to return to teaching. I saw my doctor last week, and he said it's not possible; he told me "don't even think about it". I'd end up in the hospital again, he said.
If I relocate to someplace like Ecuador or Panama or the Phillipines, I can live off $800.00 per month, or so people online who are doing it say, but then what about health insurance and health coverage?
What about my pets? I've looked into ther countries, and some are OK but others are not. Mac needs a good vet. I need a good doctor.
I wish my book would have sold better. I have others I can send out, to see if I can find a publisher or agent, but that's beginning to look as likely as winning the lottery.
Lots of people are in the same boat, with this terrible economy, so i'm not alone.
Something will work out; it has to.
