today is a better day...

I found the apt of my dreams...and its around the corner from my current house (which is still cold as hell...I'm sitting in the kitchen in front of the stove)...as a matter of fact I can see this house from my new bedroom window...its three bedrooms, but one bedroom is very small...I will use it as a library and office...and two full bathrooms...its owned by a youngish hardworking spanish couple...
In my happiness I still feel sad...choclahontas still does not want to move with me...i keep asking her...but she hasnt looked for an apt. either..she doesnt understand the time frame...I'm out on Dec. 1st...I will be damnned if I give idiotlandlady another dime...but I found a one bedroom in harlem...I hope it works out for her...
I told the couple that there is a chance that she might stay for two months, but I doubt it cause choclahontas doesnt want it...but shes sad and overwhelmed and I'm sad too...she's a slob, but I will miss her...shes lived with me all her life...It's going to be quiet, but I know she will be there alot...

Well, I'm happy to see something happening back over here on your blog. I was missing the updates on your life.

Congratulations on finding a great apartment so quickly. And somehow it seems that much better that you can see the old place from it. There's some kind of metaphor for life in that - don't stay where you're unhappy because something good is right there in front of you, if you only got looking for it.

I know it's going to be strange without choclahontas actually living with you - but it really is a good move. It's all part of her growing up. There's a certain kind of maturity that is really hard to come by unless you go out on your own for a while. And she needs that maturity so she can take care of her beautiful little boy.

I'm trying to let you inspire me right now. I've been sitting on my ass in this tiny little apartment for 8 years now (well, longer, but it's been 8 years of it being too small) and yet you can manage to turn around a move in less than a month. I definitely have something to learn from you.
