I've been without a computer for days, weeks, and thanks to Mike Wilder (a man I will be forever grateful to), I've got a loaner laptop until we can find a cheap computer to replace the one that died. And honestly, after the two months that we had been thru, it's amazing that the computer is the only actual fatality.
We're in our new apartment now, and it's delightful. Lovely neighborhood, less than three miles from the girls, first floor of a duplex. Three bedrooms, lots of light, GORGEOUS bathroom with a washer and dryer, living room, dining room that's big enough for a ten person dining table and a little play area for Julianna, and a kitchen that boasts of a microwave and a dishwasher. I don't know that I want to live here forever, but for the next year or two, it'll be perfect. Long term, I still want a house, with a dog and two cats and a ton of space, but for now... I'm content.
Marc's working away at his new job, and thus far, it seems to be working out really well. His job has the added bonus of a company car, which makes my life a thousand times easier. I'm very much an in the car, on the go, driving around kind of mom these days. And adding in dropping him off and picking him up (especially picking up - right in the middle of dinner/homework) was tough. But now... life is back to smooth sailing. Financial worries are minor, relatively - compared to how bad it was for a few months there, and now, I feel like my life is back to normal.
And I'm unbelievably grateful for it.
