Omg finally!!! I’ve been trying to get a hold of this local gym since we moved into the apartment, and no one was returning my emails/calls until yesterday. We’re going up to check it out later, and hopefully get back into the swing of things. Little will enjoy having some other kids to play with, and I will enjoy getting myself back to the bar!! I mean, I have my barbell here at the apartment, but I don’t really have the room to do any vigorous workouts, and I don’t have any plates so it’s just a piddly little 35lbs. 

Getting back to the gym and burning off some of my excess adrenalin will definitely help everything else. I’ve been fidgeting around the apartment for several weeks now, wanting to get out and do some physical activity but being unable to with the kids in tow. I should have invested in the double jogging stroller, but I didn’t really plan on being on my own with the kids, or needing a double jogging stroller for any reason. So… I’ve been pretty much stuck to wandering around the complex with the kids when it’s not raining, which has been like two days since we got settled lol. 

I’m a little excited, and a little nervous to venture out into our new slice of the world here and actually interact with people aside from cashiers at various stores. I almost enrolled Little in a local preschool, but I’m hesitant to do that since our living arrangement is temporary. As much as I like it here, I really don’t see us coming back to visit after we leave and I don’t want to form too many friendships. Ha! Like people are just flocking around to become my friend… But still. Mostly for Little’s sake. Her life has already become a mess of transitions and uncertainty. I don’t want to introduce her to peers only to leave them behind and never see them again. 

I’m not real keen on the idea of forming aquaintences myself. I’ve already started talking to my neighbors way more than I usually interact with my neighbors. Lol. I’m like hey how… I gotta stop that or I might actually miss these folks when we leave. Lol. I don’t know. I’m the weirdest extrovert. I love people, I love meeting new people, but I’m also guarded and wary of everyone I encounter. Then I come home and throw my life on the Internet where ALL THE PEOPLE can see it. I don’t know. I’m a hodge podge of contradictions. Nothing makes sense, even to me. Lol.
