It's that time of year again

Although I forgot to officially sign up, I just can't stay away.

It is frustrating to realize after the fact that the code on most of your post failed and you have to go in manually to fix them all. *sigh*

I haven't been on in FOREVER

Seriously, its been years. I don't know if anyone uses this anymore. You can find me on Twitter as AramintaCrisis.

I am coming back here to beg, really, for some help.



You may remember me. I am still single. My kids are awesome. I have three cats and two dogs and now we need a new place to live.

I severely damaged the cartilage in my knee after doing the Tough Mudder and the Dirty 30 charity runs one week apart.

I was on medication for a year and finally got approved for surgery to "help"

It was the last resort, since I do not qualify for a knee replacement.

It did not help. I am still in nearly constant pain. To add insult to injury, i racked up over $7000 in medical bills that I could not pay, that was my portion AFTER insurance.

My credit is abysmal so I cannot get a traditional mortgage. I cannot afford to pay rent plus pet deposits and/or pet rent and most places will not let me have dogs over 40 lbs. My "little" dog is 42 lbs. He's also 12, has arthritis and cataracts.

I am not going to get rid of my pets. So I have a found a house. It's an old house, in an old neighborhood but the current owner will let me "rent to own".

So, if you could find it in your heart to help us, I would be incredibly grateful.

I don’t even know if anyone will read this

Ok, when I saw this picture of myself I hated it immediately. I look miserable and fat. But you know what? This was at the end of a 5k I RAN (ok, jogged and occasionally walked but still). Actually, this was the 2nd one I did this year. It was the middle of the day, in freaking JULY and it was 95F outside. It was so hot, I kept that ice cold water bottle in the waistband of my compression shorts because it felt awesome (and kept my hands free; win-win). Also, I had fun.

So what if I’m not where I’d like to be, athletically or weight wise? I’ve lost NINE clothing sizes. More importantly, I’m PROUD of what my body is capable of. That little ensemble I’m wearing is a Medium. No, I don’t have the physique of a Sports Illustrated girl and I probably never will but I don’t even care right now. I may only run a 12 minute mile but I’m a galaxy above when I just used to say, “I can’t run”. To Hell with that. I can and I will.
