So much has changed over this past year. I threw myself into school and I'm proud to say that I'm finally a Registered Nurse. I find myself exhausted at the end of most days, and I'm working on getting a new routine down.

I'm looking out onto the horizon. My too-big house on Pleasant has quickly spiraled out of control into a behemoth that I can no longer afford to repair and remodel. The old lady has given it her best, but after decades of patch-and-fix jobs, she needs to be completely gutted and redone.
March was a significantly difficult month here. A week of temperatures that hovered around the -40*F mark split a massive water main in town and we were without water for a week (no water = no heat in Pleasantville). In that time, the pipes here burst. The boiler failed and had to be replaced, and when the water was finally turned back on, the bottom of my water heater gave out. About a month later, the ceiling in the upstairs bath collapsed, and an ice dam on the roof above the dining room threatened to do the same. It feels like I'm running as fast as I can to keep up, while other major issues surface in the meantime.
This coming week, I'm on a mission to find a new home.
