There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day.
Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!
I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.
I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 storage unit. Kept our clothes and bedding out and loaded into my little 4 door Jetta and off we went to Grandma’s, 150 miles away on October 6th. 4 days later we scheduled Chevy Man for a doctor appointment in this area. While there we learned his foot wasn’t broke, he didn’t need crutches, but he would still be out of work the total 8 weeks. A lot better news! He had in fact torn the ligaments in his ankle. This is often worse than a break but no surgery!
As of today we are 5 weeks into recovery. Chevy Man is doing well and we are all adjusting to living with my Grandparents. It has been a fun challenge. I enjoy learning and helping them every day. I currently am looking for a job and getting signed up for school. I am narrowing the prospects of schools and should come to a decision soon. I can’t wait to say I’m a college student again!
