First of all, huge kudos to you if you understand the reference in this post’s title. Not many folks would so if you do, you are awesome.
I am very slowly adjusting to my new surroundings. My appetite is finally coming back, which is nice. It sucks when you truly just can’t eat even though the food in front of you is delicious. I even cooked tonight for the first time since getting here. I had given serious consideration to ordering a pizza, since there had been coupons in the mail. But I ultimately decided that the wait time for that vs cooking something would be about the same and I did want to try out my new range. Maybe I will order a pizza later in the week.
The dogs are adjusting as well. They have already learned the layout of the new house and of course they know right where their treats are kept. They are still exploring the back yard and investigsting new smells, and are still intrigued by all the new sights and sounds as well. Princess has an amusing new habit of spinning in circles as she goes down the hall when she is excited about something. Which slows down Rascal, who just wants to beeline to wherever we are going at the time. I will have to try to get a video some time.
I am still certain I will never come to like the neighborhood, and I will never truly be comfortable here. I need more space between myself and the neighbors, and I’d prefer a quieter area. I am also not a fan of the, shall we say, “extracurricular activities” that go on. But for now at least I need to learn to tolerate the negatives and try to focus on the positives. And hopefully in the not too terribly distant future I can move once more to a better area I will really like being in, instead. I also really want to be somewhere where I can have some chickens. Lol
I’ve begun the hunt for work, as well. Most of the companies I looked into tonight either are not currently hiring, or are hiring but require experience and/or college education. Yes folks, I looked at some job listings for factory work that require a college education. Who knew? I always assumed factory jobs tended to be for the average joe who would be trained upon being hired. But as they say, when you assume things… anyway. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Until next time. xoxo
