I have internet at home again! No more sitting on a bench inside Walmart using their free wifi, no more posting from inside a 12-step meeting, no more sitting on Mr B’s deck stealing his wifi, no more trying to get a signal at work (that metal roof is murder on a cellphone signal).
Yesterday, the gas company delivered a tank and some propane, so I now have hot water and I can use the stove. Not that I really want to cook anything, its fucking hot outside and hot food just sounds so unfun to prepare. However, it is nice to be able to use my percolator for my morning coffee again. The drop coffeemaker was a life-saver, but it’s time to send it to a new home. DaRule needs a coffeemaker and we happen to have an almost new one!
Rude Ass has been finishing up lots of little projects this week. The stove is now level (the floor is not), the toe-kicks have been added to the kitchen cabinets, the drain lines have been installed in anticipation of septic system install (hopefully soon), the coffee table is finished, the bookshelf for my craft stash is in place…
I think Mollie is adjusting to a new home quicker than I am. I’m still having trouble believing that it’s real. I’ve completely moved all of our kitchen stuff from the RV, and I’m not anywhere close to filling up all of these cabinets! And my fridge looks so empty even though it’s got a week’s worth of food in it! I even moved all of Sunshine’s meat processing stuff down to the new house and could probably still fit half a Walmart in my kitchen cabinets.
I’ve slowly started putting things away, but you’d never know it to look around right now. I had to empty my craft stash so Rude Ass could fix my bookshelf, and it’s still scattered from here to Kingdom Come.
Side note: I have no idea where Kingdom Come is, but my mom always talked about it when talking about big messes. It seems appropriate, since it looks a bit like the apocalypse happened in my house.
Sunshine is out of town this week, which is making it easier to organize stuffs. I think it’s making it harder to wrap my mind around this being our new house, though. It feels like something is missing, I think.
Some day soon, I’ll post pictures of the new house, but not today. It’s a total fucking disaster in here right now and it’s making me twitch. I gotta go clean it!
Final note: I’ll have an interview with Mr B going up soon. If you have any questions for him, let me know so I can get them added in.
