Its been one of those 2 weeks where so much has happened that I am not sure what the days have been filled with.
It has been a whirlwind of chaos. Bouncing from one place to the other in the bay area for a week. A Place I have lived for 7 years and I went out just like I came in. Living in my car! On our way to Seattle, WA
Once we left our studio in the Mission area (cost $1450) Sean and I have been going between my families places.
First night of no home: my little sister Katie's apartment. Funny story: I am on the lease still for this apartment in Oakland ($1050 a month for a 2 bedroom. Which we all know is a steal!) I asked Katie and her boyfriend to move in so they could have their own place once I left. It was nice being able to be in a familiar place.
Then we were at my Dads in Campbell. We stayed in this spot for 3 days. At first, we tried sleeping inside. We loved the company, the hospitality but as soon as it came to sleeping, the problems started. A leather couch that was not big enough to hold either one of us was offered, and though it was a kind gesture, we couldn't stand how hot it was. Our Cat, Lady Wigglesworth, on the other hand, was ecstatic and loved being there! She is a female cat who LOVES male attention and at my dads there are 3 boys, my brothers Garett and Tommy, plus my Dad. So while Lady enjoyed being stationary for a few days Sean and I tried out our car bed. We discover that it was semi comfortable. It was still small but a great alternative to sleeping on a couch or paying $100 a night for a hotel. Personally, I love sleeping in the car!
The only problem we ran into was the night life of a cat. Once we put Lady in the car to see how we all would get along, we quickly realized what she does while we are asleep. Looking out the windows, stalking and playing. Sean and I woke up to Lady walking over our faces to try to get to the exposed back windows. The result, cat scratches on our bodies and faces! lol…. It has taken some time for all of us to get comfortable in our mobile home but we soon all got the hang of it!
