Updates From My World

So. Things have changed in the last few weeks. I’ve gotten somewhat employed (yay!), I’ve found a place to live for the year (yay!) for a ridiculously reasonable rent (yay!), and I’ve gone on more intense medication for my migraines, which so far has resulted in my first span of five full days sans headache in about six weeks and surprisingly cold fingers and toes. This is a tradeoff I am more than willing to make. It is 11:41 pm and I am strangely hungry. Weird. Silly stomach, you’ve already had dinner! Wait for breakfast!

My current roommate and I have waged extensive war upon the ants that threaten to invade our apartment whenever we turn our backs, and for the time being, we appear to have been victorious. It was truly horrifying there for a while, though. I got up in the middle of the night, only to find our bathroom COMPLETELY overrun by them. Seriously, they were everywhere. I looked down, and suddenly it was all skittering legs EVERYWHERE. AGH. Anyhow, ant traps and some strategic swiffering seem to have stemmed the tide.

I’m moving into my new place, doing all sorts of grownup things like unpacking dishes and buying myself a bed. I’m pretty excited to have a full size mattress all to myself this year, even if I’m sleeping on it in a somewhat shared space. It’s like grownup lite!

I have mosquito bites. A lot of mosquito bites. I caught one today at work, in the process of biting me. I squeezed my skin and the bug blew up and left a smear of blood on my arm. 4 showered me with rose petals, pink ones, repeatedly, and then made up a new word to mean “volcano,” specifically of petals, which she repeated delightedly. I burned the roof of my mouth on my dinner. 6 asked me if I believe in Jesus. I said that was a very personal subject she should discuss with her parents, and not with me. I need a haircut. I need to go to bed.

    I’m apparently in some sort of weird space/time situation because you wrote this in the future?
    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, be sure to write all of this down so you can write your blockbusting bestseller, A Year On The Playground: The Nannying.
    Also: Grown Up Lite! Half of the major problems with all of that refreshing Grown Up taste!

    Ah yes, writing from the future. I didn’t so much do that, as started writing it a couple of days ago, and then finished it later, so the mention of 11:41 is from like, 11:41 four or five days ago!
