|Roxy and Afro getting some treats|
|Afro in my new place!|
My apartment is on a quiet little dead end street. Directly behind me is an elementary school. My kitties are going to have fun watching kids play! I live in a pretty residential neighborhood, and it definitely feels safe. I've met all of my neighbors, and they all seem pretty nice.
As I mentioned, yesterday I took a bus for the first time, and made it out alive. Today I am looking for a job, a bank, and Sprouts market. The grocery that is closest to me is the worst grocery ever. I am definitely living in a food desert. But, the awesome news is that there is a Sprouts market downtown somewhere, and I am pretty close to downtown. I've never been to a Sprouts before, but from what I understand they are a mecca for all things bulk bin. I will also be applying for a job there, because it's close to my home, and discount!
I have to say the one thing I am most struggling with is grief. I am so happy to have my kitties back. but I would be lying if I didn't say there is a void. We are incomplete. And I feel that loss so strongly. I worry about the others, I wonder if they're okay, are they lonely? It's a wound that will always be there.
I don't want to end on a sad note, today I am going to conquer the world, and make sure this never ever happens to us again.
I'll be back tomorrow with kitty and apartment pictures. The pace is pretty much empty, but hey, it's a home! And of course my kitchen has the most stuff of any of the rooms! Ha ha!
