A new chapter

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.

Pluto Smotocel

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’re back from Italy

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.

HA:TFELT (Yenny) “Ain’t Nobody” Teaser Video

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.

Freedom at last!

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.

Cleaning is fun!

I’m just taking a short break right now. I’m in the process of cleaning the entire house, which is weird.

It’s weird because it’s my weekend and I should be resting. I still have 6 more days of work on the night shift and then unemployment. Meaning I will have plenty of time to clean and do anything I wish in a week or so.

Yet, I felt like cleaning. And it feels so good. I still have the laundry to do and to vacuum every inch of the house.

After that, I can watch a movie or some cartoons if I feel like it.

And, yes. This is a post dedicated to cleaning. I feel so proud of myself when things are clean and nice.
