Ok so I guess I left a lot out of that last post. First of all, I didn't write anything for 2 months. That is basically because I had meant this blog to be about the big move we are embarking on, and I wasn't sure about the details and hadn't told the appropriate people (ie employers) so I didn't want word to get out too much. Also, I just got really busy. So we had Christmas and New Year's, spent 2 weeks in Oregon during a crazy snow storm that everyone kept assuring me was NOT normal, and Pat (the same Pat I had just written about) thought it would be fun to go get a brain tumor and scare the crap out of me. Turns out its not cancer, which is nice. Didn't find that out for like two weeks though, and then there was another two weeks of the hospital and gibberish text messages from him at 2am. Found out later that the hospital stay included a couple reactions to meds and meningitis. Since he didn't share that info in his drugged stupor, I just thought he was being his weird self. Truth be told, he has had weirder moments when nothing was wrong with him.
So...you know those movies that start out with the family in a station wagon packed full of kids and boxes, pulling up to a house that the kids and wife have never seen before? The kids are yelling about which room they want, the wife is amazed at how big the house is...."it needs some work but it will be great!" Apparently, the wife was never involved in getting the house, and she can't believe her husband found it for such a great deal. The house is in a small town, the neighbors seem friendly (maybe a little strange, but we're not in the city anymore!) Then the kids start hearing stuff....and seeing stuff....and pretty soon people are getting possessed/people are dying/people are freaking out. Yeah well, we've put an offer in on a house, and it has been accepted. A big house. In a small town. We just can't believe what a great deal it was! Don't worry though, I've watched a ton of scary movies, I know how to stay alive. **2 points if you know what the house is in the picture.
