Been a while.

Ya, so it has been a while since I last posted. It will pick up again. A lot has happened since I let this thing lapse. I have been almost 3 years not smoking. I have been living here with the sister out in butt-fuck-nowhere for about as long.

 Now the sister is getting married, moving in with her ├Čntended`and selling the trailor. So I was on the hunt for a new place. I am really not interested in buying (or I would consider buying the trailor). I don`t want all the hassle that owning property entails.

 So, as luck would have it, one of my friends is moving to another province and renting her house and the basement apartment that we once shared back in the good old days when we were 19. Back then, the place was an utter mess, dark and dingy, full of garbage and cobwebs, but once our eyes adjusted to the light?
We saw the bar! Back then it was straight out of a 70's porno. Mirrored wall, glass shelves, and I am pretty sure there was a lamp in the shape of a stoplight. It had no bathroom or kitchen. We looked at each other and smiled, 'Oh ya, we can live here!'

We spent a year partying and partying some more. Best year of my life. So, when my friend (The Bride, btw) said her father was going to renovate it into a one bedroom... I jumped at it. I am on vacation from the 21st to the 31st so moving my home office won't be an issue, it just all fell into place.

 Now I am starting to worry that the reno will not go as planned. The infloor heating is in but there is still no kitchen or bathroom. I am getting excited, however, to be on my own. I have never really been on my own since... well...since we lived in this apartment almost 30 years ago. There was a few months when the boy moved out before I moved here, but that is it.

And while living with the Sister, it was a bit strained so I really didn't feel comfortable blogging about our daily lives like I used to. The Sister is a bit more sensitive, and when you have to live with someone? know how it is.

Any who...starting in the new year the blog will come alive again. I promise.

And to celebrate? I give you....The Twelve Days of Christmas.
