We are mostly settled in. It has been an intersting and busy couple of months.
I tore something in my knee about two weeks before we moved, that made packing super easy and super fun. So easy to pack when yoy can’t walk. That Murphy and his laws, asshole.
But we are moved (thank god we had decided to hire moves). The new house is great. Except for the stray cat that had kittens in my yard last week. Now we have 6 more cats in the house. What am I going to do with them?
Their capture was a story, but she is a stray and not feral and has warmed up to us (probably because we bring her food).
In other news, I haven’t heard a word from the horribles since we moved. Moving day came with no help from either Lilybelle or Marigold in spite of the FIVE times that Jonquil has moved Marigold to and from school. No offer of help from Jonquil’s mother either, but she did call him for help the day before we moved. Not “can I make you dinner because all your pots and dishes are surely packed?” but instead “can you come and help me’.
And today, Marigold is graduating from college.
Remember the stories of tears and anger when Narcissus would bail on Marigold right before she was supposed to move her to or from school? Five times. FIVE FUCKING TIMES!?!?! Only the last time did the Unfortunate Sucker move the child, he apparently thought it was his turn.
And when Marigold needed to apply for student loans she needed Narcissus’ income tax information to complete the application and Narcissus REFUSED to file her income tax return so we had to lie and give Marigold her dad’s information.
But Narcissus is the one that got invoted to Marigold’s graudation ceremony. Narcissus and the Unfortunate Sucker.
I guess the apples don’t fall far from the trees. Narcissus, Narcissus Jr. and Narcissus Jr #2.
It may be time to completely cut the poison out of my life.
