Everything I love about this experience are the things he hates (the nice drive up, the nature sounds, the change of place). Oh well, being in a couple means making compromises. And I pay for everything, so he has to put up with doing stuff I want to do that he doesn’t.Continue reading

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Hide From Snow!
Happy Saturday! I am so glad to have my nice warm house. I woke up early and did our watchalong, than ran a bunch of errands, then walked the dog, and then was SO COLD. It’s not super super cold here, just around 7 degrees Fahrenheit, which means it’s warm enough that if I dress for it I don’t realize how cold I am. Until I come home and go “wow, I was outside way too long! I am so cold!”Continue reading

My nephew is 2 years old, and Albie Dog is 3 years old, and apparently they are exactly lined up.

But right now, perfection!Continue reading

Ramadan Kareem! From Me and My Dad and Albie Dog!!!!
Ramadan Kareem! If I were Muslim, I would get to wake up early and eat a ton of a food, and then stay up late and eat a ton of food. I suppose I could do that anyway just for fun, but it wouldn’t be the same without the big family/social aspect.Continue reading

Help Me Pick Albie’s Adopt-a-Versary Gift!!!!
