I’ve almost finished cleaning the house. I still have the laundry so I can take a small break for my house chores.
While I’m writing this, Marlanu’ is drinking water and Pluto (also known as Smotocel) is sleeping on my foot. You might wonder who Pluto is. Well, he is a 2 months old Labrador puppy. Yes, we got a dog. After many months and a lot of begging, Johnny caved in and now we are 4.
As you might imagine I am really happy with the outcome. We’ve bragged about him to everyone, except to my parents. In fact, it would be for the best if they didn’t find out just yet. I know it’s their house and they’ve allowed us to stay (we pay everything and take care of everything), even with a cat, but I don’t know how they’ll react to a dog that will grow to be 30 kg.
I hope we’ve done a lot of good things so they won’t be that mad when they find out. Because, they will find out and they will be mad. It’s just a matter of time.
Pluto is a really small pup for his age, even if we bought him from a “breeder”. He came to us dirty, with a fake health certificate and no pedigree. We don’t care about the pedigree, but he wasn’t dewormed and he doesn’t have his first vaccine. The vet we went today told us that the signatures and stamps on his health certificate don’t have certain things that all vets normally have.
That means we have to start from scratch with Pluto as we did with Marlanu’. That’s not a problem for us. We wouldn’t have gotten a dog if we couldn’t afford it. It’s just annoying we’ve gave money to someone that does this kind of things.
I’m also happy that Marlanu’ is not aggressive towards Pluto. We we’re worried on how the cat would react to the dog. Well, we left them together alone for 5-6 hours and nothing bad happened. Even the house was in one piece.
I just can’t wait to take him for walks and for him to learn to sleep alone. When people say dogs are like children they aren’t joking.
We’ve just returned from our vacation. We were away in Italy from the 7th till the 23rd of August. It was an unique experience for both of us.
It was my first time out of the country and it was our first time away from Marlanu’ for more than a week.
My first thought was to make one huge post with everything we’ve done and all the places we went. But, I don’t feel like sharing all of that. First of all, it wasn’t a dream vacation. There is no such thing as a dream vacation. Second, we’ve stayed away from all the busy places, all the tourist attractions Italy has. After all, it was August and the country was packed with tourists.
We were also lucky that we were in the south. In the north of the country it rained and it is much more expensive than the south.
And we have so many photos. It’s really hard to pick just a few to show off. We’ve been to MagicLand (an amusement park), Zoo Safari (where we saw many animals), Reggia di Caserta (a beautiful place, spoiled only by the company we had), Old Caserta (again, a beautiful old village with small streets and lovely houses), Mount Vesuvius, Ischia and of course the sea side.
Below you shall find some of my favorite photos from our vacation:
It was a good vacation. I do hope we shall have more opportunities like this one.
I really do miss the Wonder Girls and their cute songs. It’s such a pity that they’ve each gone their separate ways.
On the other hand I am happy to see them grow and each taking different directions. So far, SunMi was the only one that made a music comeback. But, it seems that Yenny will also make a comeback, and this will be happening pretty soon.
The teaser is already out.
She changed her stage name to HA:TFELT (to distinguish herself from the Wonder Girls days). I can’t wait for her album to come out.
It’s finally over. I kept my promise and here I am, at home and currently unemployed.
It’s actually my second day of being a “lazy bum”, but I’m still feeling the effects of the night shift and sheer exhaustion. Yesterday I had a full day. I’ve cleaned, washed, had a mini trip to the country side and more housework.
But I did took time to have a bubble bath. It’s been such a long time since I had a bubble bath. Heck, in the last year I only had quick showers. It was so relaxing that once I got of the bath, I just dropped in bed and woke up at 6 AM. Yup, I still need to fix my sleep pattern. I am unable to sleep more than 6 hours per day.
I’m also happy that I had the chance to take some photos with my new phone. Mostly flower pictures, but I am still getting used with my phone.
And, I forgot to mention the Minions. They were fun to have. I was actually considering of leaving them in the yard for my nieces to find them when they visit. But, the weather had not been that great. It rained almost every day so far. I can’t complain much since it hasn’t ruined my vacation. And I didn’t want the Minions to get dirty.
I mean, my vacation has barely started. This weekend, will be going to Fetesti. Next week Marlanu’ will be going to my in-laws where he will stay for 3-4 weeks. On the 7th of August we’re going to Italy and we’ll be back on the 23rd. I think that’s about it for now. I mean, there might be other things to do, but I seriously don’t want to stress too much over them.
I just want to be the laziest bum ever. It’s not that I deserve it, it’s more that I need it. Working with people kinda messes you up.
July is almost over and it’s still cold and it rains almost every day, and night I might add.
It’s quite depressing.
Now, I do not like the summers when it’s so hot that you sweat even when doing nothing. It’s just that I was expecting more sunshine and less rain.
Not only that, but it feels like time has stopped, especially if I am at work. You know, at first I was reluctant and thought that it might not be the best idea to quit. Well, I’ve changed my mind. I am glad I’ve quit and hopefully I will not have any permanent damage from this job.
Oh well, 25 days to go. Yes, I am counting each day till freedom!
Till then, I hope I will finish my second needlepoint project, that I will lose some of my belly and that I will learn a new recipe.
Regarding the belly fat, Johnny bought this new thing (I’m guessing it’s called a juicer in English) we now keep in the kitchen. It can make fresh juice out of almost anything. We now have a fridge full with apples and carrots, and I’m planing on buying other fruits as well. One glass a day of fresh juice really helps me not to binge on ice cream or other stuff.
Not only that, but I’ve cooked a new type of pasta this week. It was pasta with tuna! I know Johnny doesn’t like fish so I made it mostly for myself and it was so good and easy to make!
We’ve kinda splurged this month now that I think about it. We bought new phones, the juicer but we’ve paid all the bills as well and we haven’t starved yet. So, that’s a good thing.
While Johnny got an iPhone 5, I got an AllView X2 Soul. He likes the Apple operating system, while I like the Android since I find it easier to use (I still have traumas after trying to put music on my iPod using iTunes). Not only that, but I bought my phone for pictures, storage and the fact it moves so smooth and nice. Johnny bought the iPhone for reasons I am not yet aware.
Well, I cannot complain about Johnny’s iPhone, after all I got the headphones. And, the headphones are not cheap if you try to buy them from the store.
