running water, electricity, heat, internet, a refrigerator, waking up in the same place every morning, a bed, hanging up my clothes in a closet, a medicine cabinet, leaving the shampoo in the bathtub after a shower, keys, neighbors, pillows, hand washing lingerie and hanging panties on the shower curtain rod. . . .
i am a very lucky homeless person: i have a credit card, i have means, i have a car, i have friends. the friends are the most important part of the equation. still, i have been tired. i have been scared. i have been weary of being on the road. it is good to have a place to call home and i promise to never take for granted the things i have been blessed with.

wow………lucky me, today is the day I begin reading your blog, and I look forward to every moment. Cindy Clark Hudson turned me on to your blog (thanks CCH!). I don’t know about you, but sometimes I rent a whole season of a show I want to see, and have a little “marathon” day. That’s how I feel today about starting at the beginning of your blog! I can already tell that I will have to drag myself away at around 9pm…………thank you!

I’m glad you have found a sanctuary where you can be comfortable and call home. Because really, there is no place like home.

i’ve not realized how scared, lonely, depressed, and generally down i’ve been with my clothes in the car and my plans in the air. i came down with a mild case of pneumonia and i find it to be no coincidence that i finally have a place where i can hide under the covers (the bed got delivered yesterday!) and just let myself be sick.

Hugs and a homey bed to you as that is tough… yes, I like routine. We do take that for granted. 😀
