I thought it would never happen in my new home, and I think it's because my vision wasn't the way it should be in order to find them.... but I finally did it.
Since my totally awesome company has gone, I tend to have this sort of clouded strange off in space sort of starring into nowhere type of vision and as I was doing my business on the toilet I glanced downward (umm... not THERE... down to the floor, sillies) and finally discovered a shape in my linoleum!! I know...hard to believe it took me a month and a half, but it did. I have to tell you that it's probably a bit far fetched but what I've discovered is a rather short stubby tree with two branches on top and the trunk of the tree has a face on it. So it just sits there perpetually now, and will be my source of amusement while I do the things that need doing on the pot.
I want to come up with a name for my stubby tree figure. Perhaps I'll just call him Stubby. Cuz you see, I feel like he's going to become an important confidant for me over the next month or so while I'm recovering from losing my company... so he deserves a name, really.
