Too Much Info

Hey, everyone. How many times have I disappeared now?

Answer: WAY TOO MANY.

I think this is the longest gap I've ever gone between updates, and for that, I'm deeply sorry. Not because my life is super fascinating and you've all missed it, but because I've missed inundating you all with updates on my mundane life.

So, where to start?



First, and I can't believe I missed this: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME AND MY LJ! This blog became 10 years old and I became 25 years young on January 31. What a wild ride it's been so far. Maybe I'll backdate a cakeday post for us to celebrate.

Second: we moved! Tim and I got told in February that our rabbits had to go because they were bothering our landlord's sons' allergies. We, of course, couldn't bear to get rid of them, and we had been thinking of looking for a new place anyway. So we started seriously looking for another place to go.


We appreciated everyone's support, though.

Market wasn't (still isn't) good for buying, though, so we looked at renting a place. My mom suggested instead of us renting some condo or something, we look at renting a house and moving my grandparents in with us. She also jokingly suggested moving my brother Yvan with us, and we had no issue with that. Yvan was onboard the moment he realized how much faster our internet was than my parents'. XD

Fast forward to April 15; we'd begun the process of moving in! It's a slow process, though, as of the current day we still haven't gone through a lot of our stuff and it's just sitting around in boxes. Whoops. Yvan moved in about a month after us, and we finally got everything out and cleaned out of the old place at the end of May. Good riddance to that place, tbh.

As of last weekend (June 17), we made the last big push - my brother Stephane and a few of his friends (+ my mom and I) went over to my grandparents' place to get major furniture out and them out of the house. It went a lot smoother than I would have thought, given everything we were trying to move out. But we got them over in our house, which is the important part. :)

Third: Tim left his job. It's been 10 years for him at that job, but this needed to happen, we think. So as of June 17, he's been off work, and as of June 26, he'll be off for the summer working a cadet job up at Quadra. What an odd role reversal; I'll still be up to visit for Alumni Day, though.

Fourth: I know I say this a lot, but I'm really hoping to get back into the swing of things and start writing my stuff again. I know everyone is just dying for me to delete the Smitty Story and banish it far far away never to be seen again continue writing the Smitty Story, as well as seeing the remainder of my other writing projects (my UNIT!100 stories, listographies and Wreck This Journal, mainly).

Well, we'll see what happens - only time will tell!

Also, RIP Adam West - my favourite Batman. September 19, 1928-June 9, 2017. You will be dearly missed. :(

Big changes! Congratulations for the move. They can be awfully tiring and bothersome, but it sounds like that one was worth it. I hope Tim finds his big change to be a positive one as well.
