A few of you have been wondering how my move has gone and how things are going now that I've had a chance to settle.
To honor the privacy of the one whom I love, I can't divulge too much, but I will say this: this past month has been a wonderful time in my life.
I have never felt more taken care of or more loved.
I come from a chaotic background so the cocoon of gentleness I step into when I walk through the front door is an indescribable feeling.
MiniWarrior is thriving. He's doing wonderful at school and growing taller every day. He'll be outgrowing me soon! We caught a brown preying mantis on Thursday...along with 3 grasshoppers. (his last preying mantis was green so he was beyond himself with excitement over catching a brown one)
It promptly gorged itself on two of the grasshoppers heads, went into sleep mode then fell dead to the floor of the habitat when MiniWarrior went to his Dads, Saturday evening. What is it with the preying mantis dying after eating?? Freaky ass bugs...
On the work front, I heard that our jobs were funded through May of next year now. So I will be employed through the holidays :) WOO! Definitely good news. What the future holds after that, I really don't know. I pushed out my resume to different jobs while waiting for the news on my current job. I think I will continue to do so as our jobs are still on shaky ground. It was a real experience updating my resume and writing cover letters after 13 years at the same job. I'm definitely rusty.
Oh. I do have one more bit of news. Last night, I talked to the realtor who was selling the house I last rented...She asked me if I had ever seen any sign of bats.
"Yeah. Did you see any bats while you lived there?"
"Apparently this house has a huge bat problem. They are living in the fireplace."
"Yeah. Big brown ones."
"You never heard anything or saw anything?"
"Well that would explain why I heard things banging against the windows at night..."
"Oh yeah. That was probably them. They were big."
turning and shooting a look to my man
"I told you I heard noises at night!"
"Honey, having been in your bedroom and laying surrounded by all your hello kitty's staring at me with their freakish eyes, I just assumed when you said you were hearing things it was just the voices in your head."
