2015 has just begun.
It finds me on a new journey, with a new relationship, a new dog, the beginnings of a 'new' house.
And it is all good. Very good, in fact. My journey with Old Fish is beginning on solid ground, with both of us enjoying being together. In fact, since my basement has been destructed, we (the dog, cats and I) have been living with Old Fish. It started out as a safety thing for the pets due to the wreckage in the basement. Lila is terrified of the noises we were making, Pips was in the way all the time (and so not safe) and Teak just got anxious. So Old Fish suggested we move everyone to his place while all that is going on. Of course, that meant me too, because there would be no point in me being in my house, all alone, and him looking after my pets.
So I brought the animals and all their accoutrements to his place. And some of my clothes and such. And me. We are together as much as you can be, given our work schedules. And we like it. Both of us. Very much. I worry that it is too much too soon, and expressed this to him just yesterday, but he held me close and told me me really likes having me here.
So here I am. Not fully ensconced in his home, but enough that it is comfortable. We will be working on the renos in both my house and his (yes, he has a partially finished basement that needs work, and he wants to redo both the kitchen and bathroom eventually) in stints as time allows.
Will I ever move back into my house? Only time will tell that. For now, I am cohabiting with Old Fish and loving every minute of it.
Wishing all of you a Very Happy New Year and all the best that 2015 can bring.
