Well, I am now officially moved in with my parents. All but one of my boxes have been unpacked and except for an unfinished bathroom the downstairs is livable and actually quite cozy. My old cat is adapting to his new environs better than expected, although he still won’t venture upstairs. It’s going to be interesting to see how he and the other two cats will get along.
It’s funny because I’m pretty sure the cat is adapting better than I am. After all, he’s been sleeping comfortably since the night we moved in, and I’ve barely managed five hours each of the last three nights. Also, I’m absolutely exhausted and pretty sure I’m getting a sinus infection from all the dust and dirt we stirred up. My mood has been low, since moving home is no small blow to the ole ego. There was no help for it of course, but it still stings. Couple that with my work situation and you have the makings for a full blown depression. That is, if I let it go that far.
There are some upsides, though. It’s nice being back with the family, and as I said the downstairs is very cozy. For the first time in a year I have cable, and the internet is a bit faster as well. And on the job front, I’ve recently began to substitute teach and might have a chance at a job at a local library. Things are looking up on that front, if only a bit. A whole lot of things have changed all at once, and it will be some time before I’m used to it. I’ll try to keep up with the blog and writing, but in the short term things might get a bit irregular around here. However, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled weirdness soon!
