UPDATE...not much else but...
OK...so the state put me up at a motel for 28 days at which time the cash on my general relief came so that I could no longer receive the motel vouchers. So, the money is there but I had no place to stay. I spent the weekend looking and finally found an acceptable place that charges, literally, 7/8's of your benefit. Whatever, I'm good with it.
My daughter left me some cash yesterday so today I walked and bussed from the place I'm staying to Target. The last bus stop I was at before I got to Target was in Watts. They actually had quite a few signs announcing your arrival into their infamous midsts. Anyway, I bought a decent sheet set and a clip on light so that I can clip it on the bed at night if I feel like reading. They don't have WiFi. But, I can always find a Starbucks or MccyD's.
So...yesterday my daughter and her son left by airplane to visit her father's family. He has a lovely family and my kids are blessed to be a part of it.
One more thing...I decided to treat my life like a game. Remember that game where kids all leave the house with a bobby pin and they trade their way up to bigger things? The one who comes back with the biggest item wins. Let's see how well I can parlay the support of my daughter and you guys into bigger(by that I mean better!) things.
