Found a room in midtown for 2 weeks. It's not much but it's clean and convenient. To those who have offered space or to help, I cannot express how grateful I am. I made a promise to myself to take care of this myself. I'm working very hard to do so.|
Have gone thru most things. Old clothes, sheets, towels were laundered and dropped at a store that collects such things for Haiti.
Found good homes with furs for many large plush. Found a charity that will send smaller plush to children in Haiti and elsewhere; will box and mail tomorrow. Larger plush I don't keep will be dropped at the Salvation Army in Newark, which is one of the few nearby that takes plush.
Have large pile of furry related items I'm not keeping... art, fake fur, etc. Looting should begin this evening ;) Whatever's left will not be coming with me, so, last chance!
Got storage space and moving van set up for Sunday.
Found a home for Betty. She is from Brooklyn; she is going home to Brooklyn. A social worker with a tuxedo cat is adopting her. She will stop by this evening to take her. Who knows, Betty could be living with a true life brother or sister. When I reluctantly agreed to take that tiny kitten home from the thrift store one frigid day six years ago, the clerk saying they were closing and she would be put outside if nobody took her, I promised to find her a good home. I'm keeping that promie.
Ashton and I are fine. We may not be defining 'us' as 'mates' per se. I can't predict the future. Heck, even when I dream of the future it doesn't necessarily come to pass ;) This break, or phase, or whatever it may be, was necessary. Being in love is not necessarily being happy. We'll find the level of relationship that best works in time. I did make a promise to always be there for him, and that too is a promise I intend to keep.
