Well, I made it to May and that’s indeed something.
If you had asked me back in November if I thought I could make it to May, I’m not sure I could have answered that.
But now that we are inching ever closer to Spring, I feel I may absolutely survive our rookie northern Winter, and yet, had it not been for that gas gas furnace and the realtor who pushed me on the issue, I’m not so sure that I would be where I am. However, I feel maybe this is going to work out. I just completely underestimated the sort of Winter I was going to be taking on when I moved up here. That was sort of part of the whole thing about following your heart. You just do it and then deal with whatever happens. And I’m absolutely in love because along with surviving the Winter, I proposed. My husbandy and I moved up here when he got a once in a career option at a local museum. Since I can work anywhere there is internet, I decided to accept the invitation to join her. It was that or we were going to have to call it quits. The two of us had both experienced long distance relationships and they sucked. So that wasn’t an option, but for a southern boy to willingly leave a Winter that needs practically no heating for this sort of mess, it has to be real love. And I’m now in love with the up-to-date gas gas furnace that we negotiated for when we bought this condo together. Hard to feel that in one Winter, I became a fiance and a homeowner.
