Things are gradually coming together, falling into place . We have a phone that works in our new apartment and the net up and running. Last night, I started to sense the pieces falling together, I felt we had turned a corner in this move. It feels safer here. The cats are settling down as we are settling down.
There are small readjustments that make them feel more secure: like feeding them in the kitchen area instead of the back porch. It takes a little trial and error to get it right.
The Charter guy who came by was great. We had a good conversation about animals. He has a pet possum who sits on his shoulder much of the time. Cute. He also has two horses, dogs and cats, etc. He told some great stories and I told him he should stop by the Ugly Mug on a Wednesday to engage in some story-telling and hear the music.
The fact that he showed up when he did suggests that things, indeed, are coming together.
It did take a lot of work to get to this point but I think we have turned a corner. I feel much safer here.
Things have been proceeding slowly, step by step. Things that could not be rushed. Things that had to unfold in sequence.
My son takes off for China today to undertake some exchange teaching. Yes, I am a little worried because of the timing, the human rights crisis or mini-crisis there.
We may have found a way to finally sell our house in SC at long last. This would be a weight off our minds, a source of worry and a financial drain gone.
I am concerned about preparing our old apartment for the landlord's inspection. I have a sense of foreboding surrounding this seemingly small matter. You have to trust the person you are dealing with in a business matter and I am not feeling that now. I guess the answer is to just do the best we can.
I see that in business it is important to be responsible and, at the same time, stand up for your rights.
I would like to say goodbye to this man on good terms.
I love the sound of birds emanating from our back screen porch area in early dawn.
