The verdict is in.
The old allergy list has been altered....by 3!!!!
Tuna, blueberries and raspberries are now allowed back onto my place.
And I don't want to sound like an ingrate because I am indeed grateful that I can have them again....but let's be honest.....
Eggs, wheat, dairy, tomatoes.
THESE are things that are in EVERYTHING!
It would have been nice if I could eat them again.
I think my rotten attitude stems from this....
I now how 13 new allergies.
The new allergies are as follows:
Eggplant, Cantaloupe, Cranberry, Lime, Malt, Perch, Pineapple
SUGAR CANE, LIME, MUSTARD AND GARLIC
What the what!?!?!!? I've already had my precious wheat pasta and spaghetti taken away from me....now GARLIC!?!?!?!?! And I can't have ketchup and mayo anymore (eggs and tomatoes are no-no's) and now MUSTARD!!?!?!?
Also, SUGAR CANE!?!?!!? WHAT!
And HOW, pray tell, is one allergic to Tangerines and Limes but not Lemons and Oranges?!?!?!?
I am peeved. To say the least.
Our landlady had a specialist come out and test our apartment today. We are waiting to hear the results. At this point if they come back negative I guess we are going to move anyway, since the issue is that I am testing sensitive to the apartment, maybe it's fine levels for someone else. (I'm a mold light weight???) But then, if they come back really high then she said she'll start gutting the apartment and tearing stuff out...but then how do we live here while she's doing that? AND what if they don't get everything out. (I've heard from various home owners that it's pretty tough to get rid of once you've got it)
The Mr. went up to the foothills today to just be alone and pray without distractions. We are praying for guidance and clarity. That's the thing we are lacking most right now.
Clarity. Not that we demand to have all the answers, but just that we would know what we should do or not do with the info we have. Some sort of direction. (again, if you're the praying kind, feel free to add that to your list, if you feel so led)
There is an apartment a couple blocks away that is available and just so happens to be next to an old friend (and former student) that is only $25 more a month for rent (no idea on utilities) and actually has a very small second bedroom. That would be a step up for us, though I am nervous about living on a ground floor. I like be up above things, it cuts down on a lot of worries. (Wow, that statement is very revealing of my biggest weakness...worry)
But it has a garage, hook ups for a washer and dryer, heating and A/C. and partial hardwood floors. That is a huge answer to a lot of things we were praying about. The location is in the neighborhood we want but is on the corner of two MAJOR streets and there is a bus stop directly in front of the apartment. I've always wondered how the tenants handle it when I drive by and see all kinds of random people hanging out on the porch of that apartment waiting for the bus. They trash it...a lot. So, that is not ideal....but again, there's a lot about it that I like. What to do. What to do.
PS. It may or may not have a murphy bed hidden behind a built in china cabinet. How ridiculously cool is that!?!?!?!
I wasn't going to include pics with this post...but now I will.
Ladies and gents.... pics of the apartment....
This looks like a murphy bed, right!?!?!
My other concern...there seems to be NO closet space. Egad.
Lovies and Lentils
(which I am not allergic to...but lentils without garlic??? Meh.)
