Good and Bad

Good news: Precocious Daughter and I are moved into our new home.

Bad news: The sale of the house has completely fallen apart, and I don't if we can put it back together before financial collapse ensues.

Good news: The Siamese kitten is exploring her new home.

Bad news: She was completely traumatized when we brought her here, and she spent the first 24 hours either yowling miserably or hiding in a drawer.

Good news: My almost-ex has decided to work with me instead of against me, and we're communicating better than we have maybe ever.

Bad news: Everything we're communicating about is sad and stressful, and although we're in agreement, that's not the same as finding a solution.

Good news: I'm finally independent.

Bad news: I'm scared out of my fucking mind.

Good news: Everything works out in the end.

Bad news: Everything doesn't always work out well in the end.

Good news: I'm not relying on vodka to get me through this crisis.

Bad news: I'm not relying on vodka to get me through this crisis.

Remember, I have drama so you don't have to.


  1. You're strong! You're badass! You got this!

  2. It's okay to be scared, I think. I am almost always scared.

    When I'm not scared, I'm bored and complain about how nothing ever happens in my life.

    Life without a net = new memories!

  3. I agree. You're stronger than you know. You've got P.D. and the kitty to help with daily, and there's finally good communication with the almost-ex. You'll get through this. I promise. I wish I were closer so I could get all up in your bubble and give you all the hugs!

  4. You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both and there you have...okay, I'll stop because I'm kinda starting to feel like Mrs. Garrett.

    But you're finding the good in your situation and that's what will get you through.

  5. Just repeat after me, "It WILL be fine...eventually." And usually, it is.

  6. House selling is a bitch. But when you're done, you'll be un-encumbered. That's a hell of a thing. Hold on to that thought.

  7. That's awesome! I'm so sorry.

    Damn. Well I truly hope your luck scale starts tilting heavily towards the 'good' side soon.



You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
