It seems the only time I find for blogging is at night, and often only a few minutes coz’ everyone’s fighting for the pc…or I’m too bushed to even try….
We’ve found a house, finally. Costing us an arm and a leg, but that’s what you get when this won’t do and that’s too small, and the other one’s location is outside your radius, and you insist on 2 bathrooms, and you want a garden just because you want one. Whoop whoop
And you know what’s the irony? I haven’t even seen it myself yet. (insert warning bells here)
I saw it on the internet. Marked it to call the agent the following day, which I didn’t find time for, but then I get an email from the relocations agent bragging that they’ve found the perfect house. And guess what?? Yip, the same one moi found on her ownsome.
I wasn’t at home, on a short business trip, so dear old Boo had to go view it. Gave him a call afterwards. He said it was perfect. And I signed the offer. Without having seen it. “Oh my….”, I hear you say (my friends won’t believe it either..lol) ….well, I trust him. I liked the house (ok, what I saw and read of it)…
And yes, I am relieved. One less thing to worry about.
And now to some serious stuff…
I was reading about this guy who killed himself and his kids – a 2 and 9 yo. Ek verstaan regtig nie. HOEKOM?????
I’ve asked this before, and I’ll probably ask it again…..what on God’s earth and in one’s life can be so bad, that you’d decide to off your kids?
Everyone has bad days, some have bad months and years. But surely there is some remote possibility that things will improve? There must be “a silver lining” or a “light at the end…”. Can things really be that bad? Am I ignorant or naive to pain and suffering people experience out there? Ek weetie, regtig….
But, this is my take on it – off yourself if you want, but leave the kids alone!! I think these cowards do it for purely selfish reasons anyway. To punish the spouse, girlfriend – classic case of “If I can’t…then you won’t”. Bloody monster. Maybe it’s better that he didn’t survive it anyway….
Now shoot me if you can find me 😉
