I havent been posting because my brain has been missing. Coming down to the end of the school year with a very difficult class, a more difficult principal, a husband dealing with some major job-related depression, and the general insanity of a four year old; we decided to decrease our stress by planning another cross country move.
It will be so peaceful to pack up all of our stuff over the next few weeks, locate jobs while living in a hotel with a weirdo kid who wakes up at 6am for the sheer joy of being obnoxious and three cats who want to whine at us or sleep on our heads, and to do all this back in Colorado – a bare hour from where we lived 5 years ago – well, i know i’m just overwhelmed with joy and relaxation.
oh no, wait. not that. the other thing.
Seriously, though, this will be a good move for us. Brandus is miserable here and I hate my boss, and frankly, I can be put down pretty much anywhere and i’ll adapt without too much bitching about it. my issues with colorado mainly consist of hating to drive in active snow and a deep loathing of having to scrape my windshield. I can deal. Or i’ll whine and make brandus scrape my windshield and drive me places. it will all work.
plus, half of our stuff, believe it or not, is still in storage in co. we put it there when we moved to alaska, and then have never wanted to spend the money/time to go back and pack it up and bring it here. Especially after we’d been here six months and brandus declared himself violently opposed to this place and all it stood for.
so. come hell or high water, here we go again.
