The life of a porn addicted housewife.
Wednesday, October 12, 2005
Our daughter and our granddaughter are both doing fabulously. The baby is healthy as can be. She weighed 8 pounds even and was 22 ½” long. That is the exact same weight and length our daughter was when she was born. Happy coincidence!
After the baby was born we ended up leaving the hospital at about 3:30am and stopped at Steak ‘N Shake on the way home. We got to bed at about 4:45am and slept for 3 hours before we had to get right back up again. Ap0k went to work and I headed back to the hospital. After that my little sister and I went to WalMart and bought all of the baby clothes with chickens on them that we could find. Those who know me and Ap0k will understand the chickens. Then I had to go home and pack Ap0k’s bags. He came home and we jumped in my truck and headed for the airport. I figured it would be a nightmare being that it was 5:00pm but it was actually pretty empty in the passenger unloading zone. I always hate dropping him off at the airport because I miss him before I can even get back out onto the road. He’s off to Ohio until Thursday night. He goes back next Monday for the whole week if not longer. I will drive up in 2 weeks to look for a house to rent then come back and pack everything up.
The enormity of what is coming up is just starting to hit me. How am I going to find a house to rent all by myself? Ap0k isn’t going to have 2 spare minutes to help me. If it were around here it would be a snap, but I have to do it somewhere I have only visited for a week a year ago. I don’t know where anything is or what areas are good or bad. It is a daunting thought yes, but I know I will be able to do it.
We also have to come to a decision on which girl will get to stay in the house here. Will it be my daughter or my little sister?
I also have to decide what all I am taking with us and what I am leaving. Whoever gets to stay here gets all my leftovers (I can see them shaking their heads now.) I know I am leaving the TV, the microwave, a few bits of furniture, dishes, a lot of food (canned, boxed, and frozen), all my bookshelves, etc etc. Basically some of this and some of that. We were planning on getting new stuff eventually so we figured now would be a great time. This way we will have a lot less to move.
With all of the work Ap0k is going to have to do at the new DC I can see that I am going to be spending a majority of my time alone for a few months. What a depressing thought.
One thing I have caught myself doing the last few days is this…..I will be driving down the road saying “I might not see that ever again”, or I will be in a store and think “I might never shop here again.” I have found that none of it has upset me in the slightest which does surprise me.
So much to do, so little time. I can feel the stress starting to set in. I had better make sure to take my St. John’s Wort every day!!!!!
