Good News and Insanity

This is less of a blog post and more of an announcement… so, uh, yeah – hi.

For a year now, we’ve been living in depressing circumstances. Buuuuuut, we moved…


Into an apartment!

It’s small but has all new carpeting, tiles, and a new oven. Awesome, right? Still no dishwasher though, but I’ll survive. I’ve trained everyone to wash off their own dishes. Miracle.

I keep waking up and expecting to wade through bags to find my jeans, to take three steps and bump into my sister, to wake up on a bed and roll over into the springs popping through, to wear flip flops to the only shower in the building.

But now I’m sharing an actual room with only one person. I can cook in an actual kitchen. I can sit on a chair (gasp) in a real living room. I can eat at a kitchen table. I forgot what one of those looked like. I forgot there were chairs that went with tables – don’t laugh. I’m not joking.

It’s insane! But a good insane. 😀

Lucky is loving that he can run around for the first time in a year. He also loves putting on his shirt before going out at night (as its freezing up here!). No, really – he does like putting on his shirt, he wags his tail like a maniac, gets all excited… He just doesn’t like having photos taken of him.


We have a place to live! And it hasn’t sunk in yet.

I also have internet now. Permanently. 😀 So while my brain is mush and I have no idea what to say, how to put it, or why to bother telling you a bunch of random things, here are the blinds in my room.



We found material at the thrift store down the street.

Because you just needed to know this.



That is all.
