On Some Recent Developments

· I sent the Boo out Monday night to get a new chew toy for the crazed mongrels as they are being true to form and literally driving me up a effing wall. (The new house is so much bigger than the old that they’re running around like maniacs ready to piss themselves in ecstasy every 10 seconds.) Suffice it to say they needed a new distraction. Anyways, the Boo comes back 45 minutes later and what does he have? Not just the chew toy but a fish. (Ya know, one of those ones that lives for like 2 weeks and then gets unceremoniously flushed down the toilet before their new name even sticks. Can you tell I’m jaded? I’ve had and killed way too many Betas in my day.) The Boo let me name him and of course I picked Totes Magotes. Duh. We’ll see how long he can make it in this crazy, dysfunctional home.

· I’ve started working out again and boy does it severely suck. But I have to do it. I feel like a behemoth in my baggy $2 Hanes old man under shirt and stretchy yoga pants at the gym soooo something’s gotta change. (And by something I mean my exponentially expanding thighs…and ass…and waist. Let’s just say we’ve got some work to do.)

· My little sis is flying in from Chicago on Sunday to spend 5 days with the Boo and I. I’m so excited because I don’t get to see her often and I miss her like crazy. We’re less than 2 years apart so we’re cut from the same cloth. (As kids we used to call ourselves “bosom buddies”…not sure if that was supposed to be a joke or if we were serious but it happened…and it wasn’t pretty). Anyways, when the two of us get together there is no doubt lots of alcohol consumed, lots of sarcastic and cutting remarks exchanged, and one hell of a good time. I’m so excited but the only thing is the timing kind of sucks because….

· ….I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (In case you’re all jumping around and squealing obnoxiously like me I’ll give you a moment to compose yourselves.) It’s the highest paying one that I really wanted which is frickin awesome! I’m super excited and so relieved and willing myself not to shout from the rooftops. However, their looking at starting me the day after my sister gets here so that would kind of suck…not being able to see her. But there is still a possibility the start date could be pushed back a few more days so cross your fingers that it is and I can hang with little sis.

Ok so that’s all that’s new with me. My life is kind of starting to kick ass right now. How’s yours?

I so feel your pain when it comes to working out. I was going steady for a couple months, almost everyday. Then, somehow, mysteriously, my motivation slowly withered away. And I've got weight to lose as well. Good luck! Hope you stick to it!

And congrats on the job! These days, it's super hard to find anything, let alone something decent that pays well. After my school semester, I'm totally looking for a better job!

Congrats on the job! That's awesome.

And I had a beta for almost three years. I forgot to feed him and he died, totally my fault (I'm horrible), but he would've lived way longer otherwise, so it is possible.
