We are here. It is a bit surreal but so far so good. The path so far has been one crisis after another... or in the moment they feel like crises. I think we both feed into each others neurosis and anyone who happens to be in our path, watch out! First, it was the rogue mortgage person. Then it was the craptastic lawyer. Then it was the shitty car dealership dude(s). Now, whether or not any of these people actually sucked as much as we thought they did remains to be seen. what is more interesting is that both M and I have become so insane with anxiety in the past few months that I'm not sure anyone could have done anything right in our eyes. It is good that we are discovering this about our dynamic now. We are a bit of a swirling vortex of "don't mess with us" when we are stressed. One mis-step and yer doomed! Something we for sure have to keep in check but it is also good to know that we aren't afraid to complain when we need good service.
So... farm and country living related adventures this week have included:
-watching the dogs chow down on horse manure
-having new neighbors tell us that the dogs escaped and tore down the highway at breakneck speed (strangely... when I came home they were locked up tight in the barn. So either the neighbors are crazy or the dogs are magic. I vote for number 2).
-realizing that it doesn't take long to smell like horse shit basically all the time (I like it...kinda).
-there is always something to do, another thing to keep on top of
-realizing that a generator is probably not a nice to have, it is a must have.
So much to do before winter!!!
