I’m mechanically inclined
I’m blissfully insane
I’m rescuing the sacred
From the jaws of the mundane
-- Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, “Captain Suburbia”
In case anyone’s wondering, I’m very much not dead. I’ve just been…busy. Really busy.
So, to recap, I bought a house on April 20th. I finally moved in to said house about two and a half weeks ago. It’s been kinda weird, too, since I now live in Wheaton, Illinois, known to most at the place where Wheaton College and the Billy Graham Center are. To me, it’s my hometown. Which, if I’m honest, is kinda weird, too. I never intended to move back here. Hell, on a fundamental level I never wanted to move back here. Yet, here I am.
I’m still trying to adjust to the notion. I’m also still trying to get a sense of how my schedule is going to work. I’ve got some ideas kicking around in the back of my head about what to do with the blog and my writing and any number of other things.
For the moment, though – and especially for the last two weeks or so – it’s just nice to be able to sit on my couch in my house and, y’know, just sit.
But, in case you want to see a few things, here are some pictures.
There’s my car, parked in my garage (this is kind of a big deal to me):
There’s the TV in my office, which may or may not be attached to a NES, a SNES, and a N64. Are you jealous? You should be jealous:
And here’s Daisy, trying to eat her way through a chain link fence:
There was a softball game on the other side of that fence. She really, really wanted to play softball.
