I'm not just here to profess my love of America's pastime, however. No, no...it's about to become even more fascinating. Our Leo is kicking his Diabetes to the curb, my friends. Yes, I get it. He's just a cat. But again I say, he's also a breathing animal with the ability to feel pain and display emotion. I don't care if he's one of those little crabs with a painted shell. He's given me a little bit of positive energy of late. I just took a video of him chasing his tail like some frisky kitten, but my videos always play upside down, which makes him look like he's chasing his tail on the ceiling, and I thought for now I will spare you
Oh, and we decided where to send our oldest to kindergarten next year (undoubtedly, that is if I remember, I will be writing about this later). And that led to us deciding that if we're going to be in this area for the indefinite future (i.e. no job(s) elsewhere yet...teaching jobs are usually only up for grabs at the end of the school year, which has required another round of I-shall-learn-patience-if-it-kills-me) and if our kid(s) are going to be going to school in a certain school district, then we should probably live in that school district at some point. So we accidentally found a house that is pretty much everything we've been looking for: 2-story, right school district, 4 beds, 2 1/2 baths (that extra 1/2 bath will be a dream come true, I kid you not), decent yard, decent kitchen, and not insanely expensive or right beside a meth house. And in the spirit of "patience," we found the house five days ago, have walked through it twice, and are making an offer on it tonight. The best part is that I am 100% OKAY if we do not get this house and I'm 100% OKAY if we do. I feel very zen about it all, that what will happen will happen, and either way has it's fair share of challenges. Either way, life will happen, and we will be okay. Granted, we might lose a few financial pounds in the process, but who doesn't need to lose a little weight these days?
Here's to good things and resolution happening. There can be no coincidence that this all has come down right when baseball has started again. It truly is the harbinger of good, good things.
