Let the temporary stay with the ‘Rents commence!!
Already I have wreaked havoc on their calm and orderly lives. Yay! Change and variety is good for them, I say. Keeps the blood moving and the mind churning. Heh.
Even though I only lived in this particular house for less than a year before I moved out, there’s still something very comforting about this place. I can’t really describe it. Maybe it’s just because this is where my parents live, and have lived for a little over half my life. It’s warm and familiar. And it’s just completely them. I guess that’s a great comfort all on it’s own.
But this time around, when I don’t really follow their rules (which has already happened and I’ve only been here less than a day!), they don’t get so bent out of shape. They say it’s up to me; I can basically make up my own mind.
Woah. It’s like I’m being recognized as an adult! The times. They are a’changing.
I do miss my roommates though. And their goofy dogs…
It’ll definitely be an adjustment living here as opposed to the City. Although, I did stay with my parents for about a month when all this mess with my wife happened. But I barely remember that time, to be honest. I was in such a dark, horrible place back then and all the days blurred together. I am very happy to say that I am in a much better place now. It’s not a perfect place, but it’s infinitely better then where my mind was dwelling before. The days aren’t so cold and I’m starting to see a really awesome and really bright future ahead of me. Particularly one involving the roaming of our vast country in my house-on-wheels while simultaneously documenting what mischief I can get myself into… all legal of course. ;)
But for now, the saving for my future RV and/or Tiny Home begins in earnest!!! I’ll try not to stress the parentals out too much while I’m at it. Scout’s Honor! (Does it even count if you’ve never been a scout of any sort?)
And I’d say so far so good for spending half a day here. Fixed up/rearranged my “new” room. Had a yummy home-cooked meal. Scared the crap out of Mama when I snuck up behind her in the dark living room where she was watching some overly dramatic singing competition… I’d say it’s been a pretty good day. :)
Let’s hope this trend continues for, oh, say, 4 months…
