I didn’t get much sleep because of driving the Naiad home at 5:30 this morning (*yawn*), and I was sick this weekend, but yesterday and this morning were awesome. The Naiad spent the night in the guest apartment with the Valkyrie, although the three of us hung out a bunch too. She is SO NICE. And she’s coming out of an abusive relationship and is so timid and I want to scoop her up and save her from the universe. And then shower her with presents because she has a beautiful smile and she deserves happiness. She’s totes adorbs. And I think she may be smarter than me, which is slightly intimidating but also makes her more interesting. She has a razor-sharp wit and a scientific mind and I maybe have a little bit of a crush on her myself. *blush*
My MIL is a little confused about the whole thing. She keeps asking me if I’m okay with it, and this morning I was all, “They’re just so CUTE together!” and she did the confused head tilt. But she loves rescuing strays, be they people or kittens, and she wants the Naiad to be safe and happy, although she says that if the V&N relationship ever starts breaking my heart they’re dead women. MIL is very protective of me and loves me like I’m her own, which is really sweet and I’m grateful for it. But I suspect everything is going to work out well, considering that MIL is nagging her to get out of her current situation and come live with us immediately. (The Naiad is remaining in her emotionally abusive ex’s home until January when the ex can afford child care, which is honorable but dangerous to N’s mental health. She works from home, so she minds the kids before and after school.)
I have homework to do. Later, internets!
