Slightly better day…..

Bombarding ourselves with OTC medicine seems to be helping (me anyways)….. coughing has fell off considerably and sneezing and running noses seemed to have subsided a skosh….. a damn site better than yesterday anyways…. feel mostly human. Still looking for places to live, we decided to run out to a place our agent was talking about. Holey Moley is this place nice~! (pix below) We are however, running into the same thing we have been running into everywhere else…. FEMA…… Owners are getting 2 – 3 times the amount for a place they would normally get, because Uncle Sugar is footing the bill. While it may be short term, 1-2 months – they are making 2-3 times what they normally would in that time span, so they are not renting to long term people, in hopes of getting a FEMA person in there. Seems a tad bit short sighted to me – but I don’t have a place to rent out…… and what makes it even worse – is that the few people that are willing to rent long term now, have jacked their rates up to just plain ole goddamn  ridiculous rates, which is just blowing our ‘plan’ right out of the water…… DAMMIT Emmit~!

Anyhow – went out to check out one ‘possible maybe’…. Wow – not real shot in the ass about it’s location on the island – but everything else is just WOW. Waiting to see if owner will opt for a long term rental or not. The place we really want is still on the market, but the owner is holding out for a FEMA rental….. I swear – I am sick to death of hearing that word~!! Trying to work on my “Island Time” and patience – but as most of you know – patience was never a strong suit of mine…. yea, yea, yea….. I can almost hear the eye rolling from here — bite me   😉     So – it’s hurry up and wait – kinda like being back in the military~~~ In the meantime – we still have 83° or better every day, palm trees and that beautiful blue water — thinking maybe tomorrow, let the realtor do her thing – and I’ll just go snorkeling and see what kind of fishes we have swimming around out side our back porch~!

Thankx for checking in~~~

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
