Hey folks. I thought I’d start posting a lunatic loves post once a month. Sort of a what I’ve been up to all month type of deal. I used to do them once a week but I just don’t post as much as I used to. Although that may change with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up.
Some quick life updates:
Me: Busy with work. I love my job. Who knew I’d grow up to play with my food for a living. For anyone who may not be aware I also have a new grilling site called Kiss My Smoke. I love to grill so it was an easy leap to make. My health, well, that’s a whole long story for another day. I’m alive and kicking if that means anything.
Hubs: He got a new job, back at his old job. I know right, sort of confusing. The place that laid him off over 6 years needed engineers. So he’s back to being a local dude. He gave up the apartment in Sarnia and is back here full-time. So no more half time hubs. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. We’ll go with good.
Mini-me: Doing year 3 at the U. Working in her free time, horseback riding in her spare time. She’s still dating boytoy. She came home with an early Christmas gift for me tonight. She bought me Kimba The White Lion on DVD. I used to race home to watch that show. I hugged the heck out of her. In fact I picked her up and jumped up and down. I may have gotten carried away.
B-dude: Still out west (Lucy wail) getting his PHD. He’s going to school, teaching and writing. He’s moving into a new apartment in November, it’s a bit bigger than the one he’s in now. Same building so it won’t be too hard for him to move. He was able to have dinner with my sis which was nice. I keep hoping he’ll move closer to home but honestly the wild west is too pretty.
The Zoo: All the pets are good. Ginger Horse is getting her fuzzy winter coat. The three ragdoll musketeers are driving me to drink with their late night antics. Malia the demon spawn of satan is busy being evil. Mini-me’s 3 birds are doing good. They miss her now that she’s in school.
The B House: Some breaking news. We’re tearing down a wall. It’s a wall that’s been moved about a million times. Now that sucker is coming down. It’s the wall between the living room and kitchen. That way our kitchen will be one giant living room. We’ll take some pics as move through the project. If you follow me on Pinterest you will see tons of DIY pins.
