The men are hard at work as we speak. My brother in law Terry’s back is wet….he says it’s because it’s raining but it’s not. Silas came home from a walk with Auntie Leanne and was looking around wondering what was happening to his world. I hope he doesn’t cry when he wakes up and sees his universe is gone. I’ve been supervising as I need to be here for Ike. Everything is almost out of my house, it’s too weird. Another chapter closes. We’ll stay here tonight and then move the rest of the stuff that we need for the next month over to J’s house tomorrow. It’s really bitter sweet leaving here, I like my apartment. I know I’ll get over it when I get into my townhouse. It’s just the month waiting period that’s not going to be the most comfortable for us but such is life. I can’t wait to see my kids growing up in our townhouse, I have no idea how long we’ll be there but it seems like it’s going to be a happy place for the time we are there. In this market, people with our income need to fix places up and sell them for profit before we can actually afford a house. Man, if it were three years ago we’d be able to have a house for what we paid for the town house. 5 years ago we could have afforded a nice house. It’s annoying. Wrong place wrong time, oh well. Anyway, I suppose I should make myself useful. I will be without internet from tomorrow until next thursday. I’ll try and get somewhere to blog. I’m going to feel incredibly disconnected from the world. No phone, no internet. I hope I can get cable hooked up before that.
PS Silas shocked himself yesterday. He unplugged an alarm clock and I said “no no” and plugged it back in. Being his rebellious self, he unplugged it part way and then touched the metal prong, silly kid. Perhaps he’ll learn that no means no? That earned a soother time for him though, being shocked really is one of the worser feelings one can feel in the minor injuries department. It shakes you up. I thought a soother was a good idea. Speaking of soothers, (this is becoming a long PS) I’ve realized that I can swaddle Ike with a soother in his mouth and a blanket around his mouth to hold the soother in and he goes to sleep by himself. So that would make life easier on me. Now is it harder to avoid the soother or to wean a person from the soother? I’m thinking it needs to be embraced, even though I so don’t wanna go there. Any thoughts?
