I decided not to write about any of the kids’ ISSUES for a while because, while all these situations are very real and have nothing to do with me or anything I’ve done, I’m feeling a bit weird about it all. I was joking with a friend earlier today and I told her that my blog is turning into the non professional medical journal. If I didn’t know me from anyone else I would maybe think that I was a bit munchausen by proxy-ish. heh.
The fact of the matter is that there is a lot more going on over here. I just happen to stew about these issues at the end of the day and that is when I check in here to write. Also, I feel like I should point out that my kids are very much “normal”. I hope I’m not painting a bad picture of my monkeys, because they really are so wonderful in many ways. Maybe I should focus more on MOVING stuff. So much moving stuff. How about the fact that I was approached by someone today who wanted to know if I still watch babies? I was a little surprised at first, but then started to think about the whole idea. Do I dare do that again? Steady money and I wouldn’t have to work at night any more. What to do???
So moving! We are moving, moving, moving. Any advice on moving with a cat? Yeah, I didn’t see that one coming either. I looked into air transporting but that costs like a thousand dollars! No way Josie! Fish and I are starting to plan how to downsize this home as we live in it and start boxing up things that we know we’ll never use in this house ever again. Like, decorations. SOB. I put away the Halloween decorations and shed a little tear for our neighborhood that does Halloween so well. They really do know how to do it right. Starting out with Boo-ing each other. The night of Halloween is lots of fun with lots of people outside throughout the neighborhood sitting around fires while passing out hot apple cider, sodas and chili. This last Halloween, as we walked with the girls I started to feel a little sad knowing this was our last here.
We’re in the phase of the “lasts” and it hasn’t quite hit me square just yet. I’m just trying to balance in the moment with what is to be. It’s kind of a wild ride.
