I am moving to a new apartment

sorry I have not written the thing is that I had to move to a new place .
Unfortunately the owners of the old home needed to sale that house .
the new owners did not want to rent to use ( my mom and me) .
We were at that house for a little over 12 years with no problems.
All I can say is ,it is extremely hard to move but when it is the holiday season it is a pain.
I thought that maybe I would be done by now, but now I need to unpack ,
I think in 2 to 3 weeks I will be done :)
When I come back I will start to bring you some more interviews .
Thank you .

this is a pic of what my tiny studio looks like now , what a mess.
