He called on Sunday night asking for two favors. One, he needs a place to store two boxes for a bit. Not a problem, but like everything else we have that belongs to other people, it will have to be collected before we move (whenever that will be). The second is that he wants to have his mail forwarded to our address. Again, not a big deal.
Obviously, he’s not moving in with us–which is a huge relief. He’s also not moving in with the person he thought he was. Apparently, they are the type of friends who shouldn’t live together. All he said was that he’d be staying at a friend’s over the holidays, housesitting, and then would find his own place. He’s having a hard time right now getting housing assistance because the house is still in his name. Once it’s gone (I believe that’s this week), he should qualify.
I don’t know if we’ll see him for Christmas or not. My guess is that we probably will. He’s upset with my grandmother again but I’m sure he’ll come around for the holiday. Apparently, carrying a grudge against a family member isn’t something anyone in our family can do. We decided to get him a gift certificate to his neighborhood grocery store. Not sure when we’ll get it to him if he doesn’t show up at Grandma’s.
In other news, the baby is very active today. We had our big ultrasound on Friday and fortunately, he was asleep during most of the necessary measurements. He woke up when it was picture time, so once again we have some pretty lousy pics. I’ll spare you all the scans. But yes, I wrote that correctly–we’re expecting a healthy, active, baby boy!
