Once Upon a Fat Girl

Has it been that long?

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I updated!

Things are going pretty well. Our offer on the house was accepted. We ended up paying a little more than I would have liked, and a little less than they wanted us to pay. The house is so amazing! I'll try to get some pics up soon. It sort of feels like a jinx until we are actually moved in.

I love my job. Turns out I'm really good at being a special ed teacher's aide. Maybe the 13 years of experience with a special needs kiddo did the trick? Yah.

In fact, everything would be perfect except for two things.

One, Kevin isn't here. I miss him so much!

Two, I have some insane neighbors who are making life miserable right now. I started to tell the whole story, but frankly it's very sad and hard to tell without coming across as a snobby little bitch. Let's just say that ten minutes ago the man behind me was arrested. Likely having to do with his habit of hurting his family. That habit has led to the mom and 12-year-old daughter searching for someone to take their unhappiness out on. Unhappily, my son is an easy target.

On a happier note, Nick, Ruby and I went to Cave Lake with two students from school and their parents. We had SO much fun! Ruby and Nick swam and fished. Nick is a natural fisherman--who knew? The two kids we went with are two of my favorite kids at school. You know the kind of kid who is just so neat, you want to take them home with you? Yeah, that kind. It was a really awesome day.

I'm feeling a little at odds without Kevin. I'm sort of surprised, because I was a single mom for a long, long time and I didn't think it would be hard to fall back into it for a couple of months. I was so, so very wrong. Three more weeks!
