I’m always amazed at how nice and genuine some people are. Words can’t quite explain it, but I get very flustered around it. I keep feeling like someone is going to jump out and go, “HAHAHA YOU FELL FOR IT!” Either that or they won’t pull through on their end.
The whole high school mentality of writing in people’s yearbooks, “I don’t know you very well, but you seem really cool. KIT” It’s like, uh… thanks? The empty offers, the never calling back, etc. So much of that has gone on and it irritates me. But when someone comes out of the blue saying wonderful things it’s like, “Whoa. .who. .what…. ACK!!” I feel very confused and it takes me a minute to get words out. I go into shock.
On another note, my little Percy arrives today!!! My parents are coming down to VA for the Head of the Occoquan to spend time with us. We’re living at Grant’s parent’s house for now while we look for jobs and see where our lives travel to next. I’ve applied to several jobs and am looking for more. Grant has had a few interviews but no, “Yes we love you” replies. We’ve got a feast of tasty goodness planned. Tasty meats and such. I hope there will be vegetables, or else my mom really will have a fit.
Last night we had potato soup, and it was SO GOOD. I like soups. A LOT. Last weekend Grant and I made vegetarian French Onion Soup. It was just amazing. We made a Peasant Loaf of bread to go on top of the soup, and provolone cheese. Mmm mmmm mmmmmmmmm There was not very much left. 🙂
I’m thrilled my parents will be here. I just hope they get here sooner rather than later. Hopefully the traffic won’t be too bad. Apparently last night things were a bit nuts in DC. Grant’s parents headed over there to see the sights with their friends who are also staying here. There were drunks and crazy driving and people in costumes (it was Halloween) everywhere. I am glad I wasn’t out driving around. I’m avoiding using my car on Tuesday as well. There have been a ton of articles saying how accidents sky rocket on election day. I’d rather avoid it all.
