As of this past Saturday I am a Waterville resident again. It's one of those things that one wouldn't believe could be a happy event. It seems that generally when people get out they want out for good...or at least for longer than I managed. But fact is that I need my family and friends. If I am going to fly and grow and be what I want to be I need a home base - a place that feels good and like home and is full of people I love and trust. I may travel the world, I may try new things all over the place, but Waterville will be home and I'm finally okay with that.

I still have my own place and it's an even more incredible place than the last. Location is pretty great (though I will miss the water so much) and the place is just perfect for me. My mother even said the place is very "ME". It's close to my family and close to many friends. I lucked out so much on this place. It is disgustinly underpriced which is fabulously in my favor. I can't explain either how I just feel better in this place. Last night when I slept there for the first night I had none of the anxieties I had in June in Eliot. I fell asleep in the bedroom where I belonged (like I couldn't do in Eliot) thinking about how good it felt to be in the bedroom and feel like I could breathe. This place is more mine on the second day than the other place was in 4 months. This is an amazing gift.

I just now have to figure out the job thing. I thought I had that secretarial job at the hair salon, but the woman I know has neglected to call me...two separate times. The first time I had to go out there and see her and she was strangely noncomittal. Apparently her business partner had some issues with hiring someone, but this woman thought she could talk her into "no problem". She was supposed to call me back the next day - this was two weeks ago and I still haven't heard from her. So it's back to the drawing board I guess. Pounding the pavement again. November rent is not going to come easily.

So, a little nervous about the job, but overall just happy. Not giddy, not wildly excited. Just comfortable and at peace. Which at this point in my life and in my opinion is so much better

I'm at my parents' now cooking dinner for the family. :) And I'm exhausted in a pleasant way. So, enough for now. Better update sometime soon.
