It snowed last night. Great fat wet "flakes" of the sort that made the ground look like it had had a giant slushie spilled on it. Still cold today, but most of the snow is gone, and there is *sunshine*. This is not to be taken for granted. Looks like it should actually stay dry today, too.

Trying not to have existential living arrangement angst. Is a one-bedroom the right thing? Can we live that small? Debate it up one side and down the other; pros, cons; old worries and new hopes. In the end, just have to trust that we WILL find what's right for us. Time to pack a box.

Unrelatedly, I seem to totally suck at fighting as Link-okami. Srsly, this game. Herding cats and transforming into a wolf? This is not the Zelda I knew. Harumph.

Breakfast. Coffee. Maybe find pronouns and grammar again. I blame the meat.

For as much as moving sucks, the great thing is that for as long as you continue to rent (is the next endeavor a rental or purchase?), you can always move on to something else.

Finished Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass night before last! Was slightly disappointed with the ending (I wanted to be able to stay in that world and sail around a bit, mostly because I still need to catch Neptoona), but overall a good game. Thanks again!

Rental - now would be a really really bad time to buy, plus we have no downpayment. But we're tired of moving on -- we average moving every two years, and by the time you add up stress, movers, first + last, and time of work, it's just too much. We really want to settle for a while. :p

Yeah, I was disappointed with the ending, too. I don't see why you couldn't sail around longer. I restarted the game, and was collecting ship bits, but decided it was boring after a while. I think I managed to do everything in the game. *scratches head*

Glad you enjoyed it! I'm playing a borrowed copy of Twilight Princess right now (er, as mentioned) and it's kind of irksome.

Oh yes, I definitely understand that moving sucks up one side and down the other - my average move-span through life comes out to something like every 2.5 years. But the one thing I always find comforting in renting is that if it's bad, there is an end in sight. I wish you guys luck on this new place. :)

Yeah, I think I might go back to my save point before I defeated Bellum and collect the rest of the ship parts/catch Neptoona/get all the Power Gems. Depends how quickly it gets old.

I've never played Twilight Princess but it doesn't sound like much fun! *laughs* I made the mistake of going to Future Shop yesterday and there are so many good DS games out now. *drools*

Thanks :) (oh, I forgot winter in my litany of evils. bah)

Alas for I must wear my reading glasses to play the DS. ~_~ Games on the TV are much easier on the eyes (even if they drive me bonkers: Vincent, Okami, Link!!!)

Wii games take some getting used to. Mostly I'm flailing around trying to figure out attacking birds when I'm a wolf. Who thought that was a good idea? ^_^; For things like cow racing, though, it's a hoot!

Ooh, a Wii. *_* If only the Canadian government would get off its arse and process my paperwork, then maybe one of those would be in our future. :) Ah, well. Just means I'll appreciate it more when we get one.

argh, gov't paperwork. >.< I wish you luck with that!

Anticipation is a good thing, though. ^_^

**makes a face** While I was married, we moved every 3 years or so due to my ex being USAF; major pain in the arse, and at one point the time was halved because of base changes. No fun at all, and I seriously sympathize.

Totally random: I love your icon. Veeeerry nice!

I used to get asked if I was an army brat all the time because of how often we moved. >.> (so did Kiro for that matter)

At my house the slushie remains. (It rained a LOT yesterday.) And the snow is still falling. <.

ew. you have my sympathies. :p

Hope you can at least stay indoors for the day and avoid it all.

That is my plan. ^_^

*I* will trust that the housing market continues to bottom and that in a week or two owners of two-bedroom condos will be desperate to rent at a reasonable price.
