The time has come to renew my domains, and since I haven’t been as active on my other site as I had hoped, I decided it’s pretty well pointless to keep paying for it. So why this one? Eh, because frankly I’m too lazy to reassign my email address information. As long as I keep this site going, I’ll won’t have to change my registrations at multiple whatevers. So there you go. That’s not to say this one will become necessarily more active, because I seem to be at a point in my life where having an online presence isn’t important. I guess priorities change once you tick over into your third decade on this planet we call home.
So what’s been going on lately? Well, some time in the middle of last year, Dude and I packed up all of our belongings and drove down to the Tampa Bay area. Neither of us had jobs lined up, but his mom was gracious enough to donate her spare bedroom to us until such a time when we could establish ourselves as real functional and responsible grown-ups. That took a bit longer than I would have liked (I found a gig in about six weeks, and Dude took about three months). All in all, it took five months to get established, so we moved yet again into our own humble abode in the great sandy floodplain that is Tampa Bay.
Our spare bedroom is still nothing but boxes. Work in progress.
Currently it’s just me and the Dude. We lost our sweet Doop in September of 2014, and Beast passed in April 2015. They both lived full and (hopefully) happy lives, but losing them has been hard. And my darling furchild, Scully’s Alien Baby, passed late last year. When I moved out on my own, she stayed with my parents, since I was not financially able to support her. By the time I could support her, she had been living with them for so long I thought it cruel to tear her away from them and from the place she knew as home. Leaving her behind while I moved to Florida was hard – I cried on the last day I snuggled her, because I knew, at her age, it would be the last time I ever would. But I do take some comfort in knowing that she will always be home, along with those who have passed before her.
As of yet, we have no plans to adopt any new fur into our lives. The day will come, I’m sure, but not right now.
There have been other updates, of course, but for now, adios.
