Now that I finally changed the header (after almost four effing years!!), I guess I can finally update my life. Not living in Pennsylvania anymore, obviously not working for Verizon anymore...oh yeah, a lot has changed. Bum is old enough to drive, Dude is will be driving soon enough, and Cutie (formally known as Sir) is starting kindergarten this year. Wow, it really has been a while.
Okay, for starters, I now live in Iowa...aka Boonieville, USA. It's a long, complicated story as to how I got here, but I've honestly never been happier. Another change is that I'm a overpaid government employee now, working for the USPS as a carrier. I absolutely love my job, and the pay makes me love it more (hee hee hee).
The kids are doing awesome, although having two teenagers in the house isn't the greatest of scenarios. At least it's not all the time--Dude lives with Dad most of the time (who only lives four miles down the road), while Bum stays with me. Cutie bounces back and forth, and it's all good.
It's funny how one of the worst things that happened to me turned out to be one of the biggest (and best) life changes. If you had told me ten years ago this is where I'd be, I would have pissed my pants laughing at you. Never thought I'd ever go through this drastic of a change in scenery--from somewhat busy East Coast city life to small town Midwest country living. But as they say, everything happens for a reason.
There's more to the story--there's always more.
til next time...
