    …..and that “lie” is, as some of you know, that I have actually been living in Pioneer Square (mips) for the last several months, in a Transitional Housing Program.

    During that time, I was getting help with applying for permanent, Subsidized Housing, and other benefits.

    I was awarded Social Security Disability, and was able to start looking into affordable Market Rate Housing, as the waitlist for Subsidized are so long (typical minimum is three years.)

    Anyway, I signed a lease on a very reasonably priced apartment, in Highland Park today, so I’m officially back in West Seattle!

    I’m still paid up through the end of the month in Transitional, so am not going to be rushed out the door there. That’ll give me a chance to get some basic essentials (which is looking good already, thanks to friends that have already replied to an e-mail I sent out!)

    Anyway, I know many of you have been wondering what was going on in my life now, and this is it!

    I would like to thank everyone that has helped me out throughout all of this, and also to thank everyone that has helped out Nickelsville, and continues to do so, even long after I left!

    Mike:

    Glad you will be MIWS again. I was amazed by your knowledge of Ferry Trivia recently. Just let your community know of a need and we’ll kick in unless it is an upgrade to Arbor point with 270 degree views…

    Thanks everyone!

    I might wait a few days to post a wish list, because the offers have been pouring in already! (And it’s a small apartment, not enough counter space for 30 toasters!)

    Jo, thank you. But I had a lot of help too. ;-)

    Mike — SO glad to hear it! I have been following your journey via the Blog with you. I too would be happy to help you set up your household if you need…. an idea I had was maybe a couple people could each pick a room of your new home. I could stock your bathroom, I’m in the process of purging extras and have found a shower curtain, towels etc…. Would even be happy to buy soap, shampoo, toothpaste, TP etc….. Please let me/us know and Merry Christmas!

    Mike-

    Glad you are coming back to this side of the bridge.

    Thanks again, everyone!

    jissy, a shower curtain is needed, and would be much appreciated!

    Also, the towels and such. TP is “on the list”, but I checked and there is a partial roll on the holder! ;-)

    I just recently bought some shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, to replace what is running low in my current situation. But, liquid hand soap is on the list with the TP!

    Mike — I will be happy to get all that stuff together and anything else I think a bathroom might need. Can you give me an idea of when you would like it? I’ll just set out to do a bathroom-like care package, how ’bout that!

    Thanks Rich!

    Jissy, I don’t have an exact date pinned down yet.

    I’m guessing it could be about anytime in the next few days.

    Sorry to be so vague, but I’m waiting on seeing when getting a couch and microwave can be acquired, so I’ll have a place to sleep, until I get a bed (used to be able to sleep on the floor easily enough!) and the microwave for cooking stuff, until I can get some pots and pans. I have some very basics of other stuff (plastic plates, plastic bowls to heat soup, etc)

    The other thing, is once those are in place, (or on their way) is co-ordinating a ride for myself and my rather few, but a bit cumbersome, belongings I’ve had with me in transitional.

    I’ll try to keep you posted as best as possible!

    Thanks!

    Mike

    We have gazillions of pans, dishes, etc. JoB can come by and select what you want :-) Seriously, the stuff is in good shape and it would be wonderful to get it out of my tangled hair.
