Hi there and welcome to my blog. I am a married 60 year old woman who still has the mind of a twenty year old. I have three children and two grandsons. I've been to hell and back each time stronger than the time before. If I can help you then it was all worth it.

The Darling Inn #NewBlogger#LowIncomeApartment#StaySafe

I, with my husband, have lived at the Darling Inn three years now. Before this, we lived in an efficiency apartment. When we went to go look at it when we walked in I loved it right away. The way the apartment was set up reminded me of my grandma. It was very quaint. Behind there was the Passumpsic River, with that sound of a river traveling over rocks. Behind the river was a baseball field which at night in the summertime we could hear the ball being struck, the cheers of the crowd. The noise was comforting. The apartment was so small tho. I used to have another blog which I posted this about my tiny shower.


MY TINY SHOWER

I find this funny and wanna share:  

Now I love a good hot shower like the next person but our shower has a personality all its own.

 First off my husband and I live in an efficiency apt. which seemed like a palace after being put up in our in-law's tiny trailer, which we were very grateful for, didn't have a working shower or bathroom for that matter so we defiantly were moving up.

Since we have moved in almost three years ago come this April of 2015 either we got larger or the shower shrunk. I prefer the latter.

I say this because there is a ritual to taking a shower here. It's a very chilly bathroom so you open the shower door to this large squeaky noise and turn on the shower to hot. Then always if not every time the shower door has to be adjusted making more squeaking noises. Sometimes the husband had to be called in to help do this.

You very carefully step in sideways trying to remember to shield your breast or the very cold edge of the metal will molest you getting in.

Shaving is a defiant challenge for bending over constitutes either banging your head on the shower wall in front of you or getting goosed from behind on the cold shower wall behind you.

When you are all showered up and ready to get out again shielding your other breast so the metal shower wall doesn't rip it from your body your home free and clean!

Mental Note: Next place will have a large bathroom. It will be so big you will have to follow painted arrows to find the tub!

We had applied for low-income apartments, the wait became eight months. When we got the approval letter we were overjoyed. The apartments charge 33% of whatever income you have. We have a 2-bedroom apartment now with a very large bathroom. When we first got here we didn't have much but I knew that it wouldn't take long to fill up and it did.
There are 28 apartments each with a person or persons with their different personalities. I enjoy getting to know them. The mail is inside the lobby. The door is locked at 8pm. It's nice to feel safe. It has a meal kitchen that sponsors a free Thanksgiving dinner every year. A big common room, a huge basement with laundry facilities.
So if you need to find a place that you can afford just type in low-income housing and Google will find low-income apartments close to you. Or you can do the same thing by the state you want to move too. You will have all kind of help through these low-income places and not be on your own.
