A SINGLE WOMANS BED!

Single Woman’s Bed!

Now where do I sleep! Want to know a secret! I had a sleep number when I was living with my husband. You know those fancy beds where Lyndsey Wagner asks what number are you and talks about how you can fill up your side with just the right amount of air to keep it as firm as you want for a good nights sleep. Yup I had one. Well the day the man I am married to said those magic words, “I want a divorce”. I took an ice pick and popped it! Poooof!!! Take that and that and that!!! I thought I was the Bionic Woman! So the joke was on me. I have been sleeping on the floor for 4 months, 2 of it on a blow up mattress which I swear I have dreams that I am in an ocean floating in the Pacific Ocean on a lifesaver!

So yesterday Catalina made her first big purchase as a single independent woman. SHE BOUGHT A BED! Yeah that’s right! Give me some skin!! Whoop Whoop!
I have not been able to afford it, but I finally got my taxes and I told myself hold on and soon as those taxes come that is the first thing on my list. I am moving up in this world.

This may be a small thing to your average person. But to Catalina, the person who thought she could not even be able to afford a candy bar alone without the help of her husband…this is huge and I am doing this on my own. I had to sleep on the floor and that was ok. I did it people…I survived the storm and tonight will be my first night on a real bed!!!

      1. Oh, money… my goodness! Do you know what I do? When I pay a bill, I write with a large marker “Thank you for the money” on top of it. One little victory at a time. xxx
