2nd (or 10th) Guessing

Life sometimes forces you to revisit your decisions.

Small: Invariably, whenever I schedule a haircut, I will immediately have a time period directly before the appointment in which my hair looks perfect.

Large: Within one month of our break-up, T changed certain elements of his life that had previously caused a great deal of contentiousness within our relationship: he moved to the city, began taking better care of his health, and started to reconcile with his estranged mother.

Currently: I've gone 4 nights without seeing a bedbug or getting new bites. However, I've already informed my management company that I'm terminating my lease and started to make preparations to move.

Don't be fooled into staying; the bedbugs have probably gotten wind of your plans to move & have been on their best behavior to trick you into remaining their meal ticket.

you're right! nefarious little fuckers...

At least they're making moving a bit easier on you. Just make sure you steam anything you take along and to toss anything you don't really need. They are sneaky mofos. But four days is a good sign.

hi caitlin: i'm going to the talk to the museum of natural history guy soon - i think steaming or freezing would work. in any event, nothing is coming with me to the new place that can't be put in a washing machine or dishwasher.

ouch --- re:Large...
why does that always seem to happen in the complicated breakups (ie didn't cheat, got along great aside from the slow painful realization/acceptance that some things couldn't be ignored nor compromised)? "I love you, but I can't be with you if these are your choices"...they let you leave then make all the changes and the new girlfriend gets to wonder how crazy you must have been to let such a catch go. *sigh*
