Check 1: My partner pestered me about moving in together, which mostly involved a lot of thinking and changes on my part (shared custody of children with the co-parent, commute times, trying to maintain two residences in the effing Bay Area, my partner getting an out of control incompatible dog in spite of my daughter's cat) to figure out how it could work. Luckily it never came to fruition, because as soon as she graduated from her Master's program she took off for 4 months (within three days of graduating, so we had not even a weekend together to celebrate!) for Mexico to "learn Spanish via immersion" and then to Italy for some professional development from which she has yet to see any benefits. What would I have been doing in that shared home?

I stop to miau to cats.
