2/22/13 TGIF!

Aristotle said, "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." Do you agree or disagree?

Completely agree!!

Long day today.  Wasn't all bad, but still, long.  I'll skip the junky stuff, and tell you that I got to see my Monkey for a while.  Oooo, why does she have to be so damn CUTE!!??  I can't even believe I didn't take a single picture of her today.  I'm slipping.  But, we all know how adorable she is, right?

Ok, just in case anyone forgot, my brother sent these the other day, with a subject line that said, "What?!  Can't a girl play dress up in the morning?!"

We got snow here overnight, so you know I'm one happy penguin right now!  Even Monkey got out and played in it for a bit.  And, I didn't even have to really shovel, thanks to my awesome neighbor.  He was out there with his snowblower bright and early this morning.  I planned to still shovel at my parents' house, and threw my boots in the car before I went to the gym, but my brother beat me to it.  Truthfully, I was a little disappointed, as I was looking forward to the workout.  I didn't get to do my own giant driveway (although I did have to do a little that my neighbor couldn't get to with our cars in the way), I didn't get to do Jean's (my sweet 89 year-old neighbor) because Magnum did it, and then I didn't get to do my parents', either.  Poop!!  Good thing I really pushed it at the gym today.

But, not having to shovel gave me more time to play with my Monkey, so that's a good thing.  Out of the blue, Magnum popped in to see her while he was working*, and she was SO happy to see him!  She literally RAN to the door when I told her he was coming, since I saw him pull up in front of the house.  She ran, screaming his name, to greet him.  She so damn cute with him.  I don't know what it is, but she's a bit obsessed with her Uncle Magnum.  I'd be lying if I said the feeling wasn't mutual.  He's really funny with her.

Stud happened to pull up right behind his father, so they both got to see her for a while.  Stud can't get enough of Monkey, either.  I know I mentioned the other day that he wanted to go "steal" her.  He has this upcoming Tuesday off, so I have a feeling he's going to try and spend some time with her then.  He'll have to fight me for her, though. =)

Well, I'm beat.  I'd love to keep giving the mundane details of our lives, but I've got to hit the sack.  See you tomorrow!

*Ok, don't get excited.  No, Magnum didn't find a job yet.  But, back in November, after being out of work for a month, he was freaking out about not finding a job.  So, he took a pizza delivery job just to get some cash flow going.  It was killing him to not have a paycheck, and he's not above doing whatever it takes to take care of business.  He's kinda awesome like that.  It certainly isn't a full-time gig, but he usually works 3-4 afternoons/nights per week.  Every little bit helps right now.  I'm on Month 8 without a job, he's almost on Month 5. =(

Magnum is awesome like that....taking care of his peeps.
I vote that we start a fundraiser for Monkey. Clearly, she is lacking on toys and cute clothes.
