There we were. A couple nearing an empty nest. For never having kids, I was looking forward to the Brother-in-Law moving out so we could have the house to ourselves.
That was June-ish.
July found us letting a young (19) woman move in to escape a bad home life. By the end of July her 15 year old sister had moved in after DCFS got involved and felt her mother needed to get her shit together.
So now we have the two of them for the indefinite future.
Bringing us to today. Or last night to be more specific.
It was a dark and stormy evening.
It was a dark and stormy night.
A night that saw an apartment lose its roof. The apartment where “my” girls’ best friends lived.
And who have no place to go but a shelter.
So, now my little home is up to eight. (The friends, their mother and brother)
- Our 2 dogs and our 2 cats and in told their is a third cat, but I haven’t seen it.
