Misc ramblings


I am so relieved that this election is over and more importantly, that Barack Obama is the president elect.  There is a god!  I didn’t realize how keyed up I was about it until last night – I cried, actually sobbed once it was all over.  I didn’t think it would affect me that much – of course, it’s partly the hormones.

I may have had a bit of a breakthrough regarding our house. I have pretty much spent the last 2 years feeling a little bit displaced and homeless. I moved in with Mr. CC in Oct 2006. I moved into his place, which used to be his parents house. His father passed away in 2001 and his mother continued to live here until 2004. The house was pretty much a shrine to his father in that very little had been moved since he had died. When I moved in five years after his death, the closets were still full of Mr. CC’s father’s clothes. The entire hallway smelled of medication because Mr. CC’s father had been sick for a very long time, and there were entire closets stuffed full of bandages and medications. It was quite possibly the creepiest and saddest house I had ever lived in. To be honest, I’m not sure moving in here when I did was a good idea – the house and all the accompanying craziness came pretty close to breaking us up. On the other hand, we’re still together and our relationship has never been stronger so who knows, maybe it was a necessary step – but it was bloody hard.
