the house – we talked to the wife of the owner (whose baby is due today) she said the house isn’t for sale. she’s been nothing but lovely and honest with us, so we’re choosing to believe her. no other noise has been made about it – no other realtors, etc. i wonder how soon we can start talking lease extension?
and remember how I was all disappointed about not even having the opportunity to chaperon s9’s overnight field trip to the lahu village? well, the same is not true for A12’s 3 day field trip to Khun Tan. I get to go! I was really worried that I wouldn’t. I have none of the redeemable qualities that they were looking for in a chaperon. no survival skills, no bird watching skills, I can’t identify poisonous plants or snakes. but turns out I have the right attitude. and I haven’t told them yet, but I can tie a knot. bonus.
oh, and then there was the post about the dog murdering the hamster. turns out undying love for a hamster is revivable and transferable. to the next cutest hamster ever that comes along. licorice has been replaced with caramel’0. sounds just as tasty. but maybe not to dogs. perhaps she’ll stay in her cage.
so, that leaves the dates for our trip to the states unknown – we won’t know actual dates until we’re able to book flights, but we’ve got a very good estimation, so good it’s almost precise. and the only other unknown I can think of right now… the where and the when and the what of my next tattoo.
