Pinch Me

I found a great apartment today, even better than I expected. And yes, it is as funky and as non-luxurious a place as this Gal could want. I can walk to the beach, or I can just stare at the waterfront. I am in heaven with this.

Work continues to feel okay. In fact, I felt almost happily comfortable tonight.

I know I can’t let my guard down. I know a thousand rugs are waiting to be pulled out from under me. They always are.

But maybe, just maybe this time the rugs will wait to be pulled. Or maybe they will finally stay put.

To quote Acoustic Son, again, almost a year later, “Maybe this time…”

    Well, good for you! You seem a bit more “chipper” than before.

    Maybe It’s just because I am confused, but I worry about you. I don’t know why, you are obviously able to take care of your self.

    But still…

    It must feel so good to have found a great apartment. I’m sure it relieves some stress because you know where you’re going to land. Congratulations, RG!

    Oh, Tinker, I worry a bit, too.

    Well, I’m a member of the “worry about you” group — or maybe it’s really “care about you.” I’m glad to know I’m not the only one here who does that.

    And I am very happy to hear you have found a nice place to live. Everybody going through a big change needs a bit of beautiful scenery to steady them.
