We’re moving to another house.
(I couldn’t take the barrage of bat sh*t any longer! 😱😱)
Warning ~ post contains foul language. Do not visualize (if you can help it)!
This house is huge, obviously built with parties and large family gatherings in mind. Unfortunately the owners haven’t shown interest in its upkeep since the family patriarch died a few years ago. So it continues to fall apart a little day by day.
Such a pity really because it is a beautiful house and I find its flaws rather charming. I would’ve been happy to stay because it afforded me so much space and quiet ❤
But since May obnoxious things have been happening 😮 😮
First the housekeepers come to me and say “ada hantu” (there’s a/are ghosts) in the house. Well, I’ve never seen/heard/felt one! (Not that I want to). But we were worried that the housekeepers might stop coming because of this since Indonesians are generally still very superstitious.
And then there are the rats and their liberal ‘droppings’ all over the place. It wasn’t like that always, something must’ve happened in May because that’s when they all decided to abandon all decency and just sh%! all over the place! Literally. Like for instance, right there in front of the door to remind you to “have a nice day” 😫😫
And then the body count started to climb. I couldn’t keep up. It became all too frequent for my daughter to cry out exasperatedly “ugh! why must there always be a dead cockroach in/on/at ….”.
And those pesky bats! Good Lord – I’d be out on the verandah after dinner contemplating the heavens when “whoosh!” Batman and Robin would fly so near to me that I can feel the air from their wings on my cheeks and I can literally smell them. 😰 Such brazenness!
And every morning a generous offering of droppings right there on my favorite reflection place. Do they like me so much or what?! 😰
Sometimes they’d come in and my husband would be so frustrated chasing them out that he’d lock us all in the bedroom while Robin would lie (or hang) in wait somewhere inside the house to (this is my guess) scare the living daylights out of the poor, unsuspecting housekeepers the following day 😱😱
Such creepy fun to be had in this “haunted house”.
But alas the party must stop at some point.
So this weekend we are moving.
I’ll see you on the other side then! 😀 Have a great weekend y’all! ❤
