So this is the first night I have taken time for myself in my new place
Last week is when I signed the paperwork and kind of started moving things into the house, mostly it was spent with my 17 year old son acting like Chiro from “Spirited away”
He was cleaning the floors and by that I mean he was running up and down the length of the room, behaving like the character in the anime
Sunday he went to the inlaws where my other two have been
that left me alone in the new house and I have been loving it
I still have no fridge or freezer or dishwasher or oven/stove or washing machine and no dryer…
The french are odd in the fact that they require you to have your own machines but I am getting there slowly
So while the hubby has been away, I have been using “his” house… as long as my name is still on the paperwork I will keep using it and if he objects …well he can suck my big toe
Almost every night for the last 2 months I have been suffering from major stress and insomnia
Now that I have a house and life is kind of fitting into place… I have LESS stress
There is still a large amount trying to float around but I am better at dodging.. ha, like dodging raindrops as you walk through a thunderstorm (I love the mind of Terry Pratchett!)
For the last 3 nights I have spent my time awake until 3, 4 or even 5 in the morning… I admit I have been productive!
Organizing what I have in the house, cleaning, buying things by day and putting them together by night..plus keeping Google entertained … he is enjoying the freedom to explore outside when I am home and the 3 other cats in the area
Tonight I worked my ass off shopping, hauling shit inside (by myself) and building up what I can
School starts on Tuesday. crazy times ahead!
I will empty out my storage unit this weekend, I have two friends helping on Saturday and one on Sunday.. hopefully my boys will lend a hand too but no big deal if they don’t
cant believe it will be September already
so yeah, tonight it is midnight and some change, I am sitting at my table…. the long white folding kind that you can use at parties or when crafting… cheap and easy
I have eaten my fancy dinner of ramen noodles, 2 fruit cups and some ham…..and beer :)
not much…. though it is a good start…. but damn I hate being without internet!!!
ps… kitten just came in through the window and noticed the ham… he is currently behaving like he has NEEEEEEEEHHHHHHver been feed lol
