speaking of home Jul 13, 2006
I got back from Brooklyn and have been mostly enjoying being in Bethel for more than a day or two in a row. My car still has a mystery ailment, but it's being attended to. The rains are unyielding and yesterday we saw a family of skunks walk through the backyard.

The big news here is this: Ola, my landlady who I live with, decided not to sell the house. Instead, she's going to go to the Peace Corps in the South Pacific, assuming they accept her application which is preliminarily accepted, and then she's going to rent the house out. How this affects me is that I get to stay, live with a law student, manage the place and NOT MOVE. This is sort of big news. Back in November when Ola told me she was selling the house, when Greg was still living here, we went through a lot of talking about moving immediately, doing something different, something, but we stayed, then I stayed.

I hate to be all "things happen for a REASON" which just seems like so much after-the-fact rationalization, but staying here strikes me as the right thing to do and I'm glad circumstances aligned to let me do that.
The other night while we were sitting around the fire pit making s'mores a skunk wander up toward us. We were just finishing up, so we gave him/her some space.

Sound like good news about the house situation. Where will Ola be heading in the South Pacific?
