We all do it regardless of the reason.
Some people do it when nervous or just for fun.
Other do it when over joyed or stressed a ton.
Sometimes its short sometimes it long.
There are millions of reason for why it happens.
Sometimes we do it and end up clapping.
There are times when there’s just no stopping.
and we end up doing it till we’re sobbing.
When done in a group it might sound like hens.
It’s hard to fake and try to pretend.
It’s comforting, only when it’s genuine,
and better when shared among a group of friends.
It’s something that should be thought after.
Always thrilling and never lack luster.
This thing is hard to control and Master.
The thing I am talking about is Laughter!

So I forgot to mention in my last post about something my four year old did. Which made me laugh.
There has been this random piece of trash on the stairs leading up to our floor. It has been there for almost the entirety of our occupancy thus far.
So my daughter likes to hold my hand as she makes her way up the stairs. Well the day in question I was in somewhat of a hurry and so I was rushing her along. She was moving pretty briskly for a toddler taking on stairs. I wasn’t paying to much attention to her cause she has climbed those stairs countless times before.
It wasn’t till we reached the trash on the stairs that I felt a jerk on my arm. It seems in an attempt to avoid stepping on this sticky piece of trash, my daughter chose to sacrifice herself to the dangers of falling. Putting all hope for her life on the precarious grip our hands shared. Luckily I had repositioned my grip moments before and managed to pull her 40 pound frame safely to the next step.
It was in that moment that I realized, my daughter was ready to die for her cause, no matter the outcome. I am not looking forward to her teenage years. This is going to be a hell of a ride!
We have been here for over a month now! It really feels like we’ve been here so much longer though! There have been some growing pains, to say the least over the last month. Yet we have made it! I hope that this place keeps feeling like more and more like home, as we wait to see what will happen.
The neighbors still make noise so no surprise there. Katie said, “they sound like they are dropping bombs”. It is still pretty annoying but on that note, the smell of marijuana has decreased, fingers crossed it stays that way.
Today the 32nd day of survival in this place was the most trying but that was only because my internet provider is stupid! I went to trade in my old modem/router for a new one, due to issues with the old one, and they gave me just a modem. So I went and bought a Wi-Fi router cause I needs me some Wi-Fi! Well, conveniently it did not work. So I called them and the guy said hey you can get a panoramic modem that does both without any deposit on it. Well, when I went to the store to get it they told me I had to pay the deposit – insert eye roll- we went back and forth and now I’m 25 dollars poorer. I’m also waiting to see if they will reimburse me for it since it was their people who said I wouldn’t have to pay!
This has been the most stress full day since moving in. Aside from that Life here has been rather nice!
A lot of us have experienced what seems like paranormal activity in my room. I have taken to a high fiber diet in order to battle these entities with their own weapons! I think it’s working it has also been keeping the kids away from me so, great success!
In honor of Katie’s “dropping bombs” comment, I leave you all with this great song!
The apartment is now becoming more of a home! New décor, more personalizing, and feeling comfy. Than there is the same old relaxing things we’ve come to love about the apartment like the rock quarry upstairs, the fragrant smell of cannabis, and the ghost!
Also, as for my lightbulb dilemma, it’s still a pain in my ass! I went to Lowe’s and could not find the lightbulbs, when I finally found lightbulbs I couldn’t find the ones I needed. Not to mention the employees at said store (Huh? What? You mean I’ve already said the name of the store? Oops!). Lowe’s employees were no help!
My sink was draining really slow! I bout a cheap snake to clean it out. Oh my Lawd! It was disgusting, that’s what the picture up top is! 😛
I introduced myself to the new neighbor and she offered me milk. Yay it threw me off too!
They did come and fix my A.C. so yay victory! More to report in a few days
