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