Risky Business

I’m not doing that great today but I’m sure it will pass. My van broke down and I don’t have much money to fix it.  I’m waiting for a friend to look at it tonight.  Yesterday I biked and bussed it all day and my body hurts.  Wow I probably need to give up sugar. I’m sure it is making things worse. I was afraid I’d have terrible bad back this morning from lifting my bike onto the bus rack but it’s not too bad. The worst part is that when the van broke down it was right in front of someone’s house. I almost slept outside last night because I was SO afraid someone would see me getting in the vann realize I’m sleeping in there and call the cops. I probably lay there for about an hour shaking and being startled by little noises. At one point I heard people talking and I imagined the neighbors outside waiting for the police to come and deal with my criminal self.  I have quite the imagination. I finally fell asleep and slept right through til morning.  Can’t complain, I guess.  Well by morning I mean 5:15. I wanted to be out of the van before daylight and before people started leaving for work. I also stashed my bike “in plain sight” the night before and thank goodness it was there in the morning. My body hurts but I feel glad to have gotten through the night.  Hopefully my van won’t need a new transmission or I’ll probably have to go live back east and live a normal life again.      I love my family back East but strangely enough I don’t want to leave this paradise even if it’s hard on me sometimes.

I am also supposed to go on an appointment today about housing for me. I REALLY hope it isn’t a waste of time because it is going to make my day even more difficult and I may even lose a client over it, which would not be good.

Thanks for reading.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.
