So next week Rachel starts work. It’s going to really suck but be awesome at the same time, considering right now we are kind of broke, and everyone knows how much being broke sucks! But at least we are hanging in there. I’m not so much worried about money anymore, everything has just been going really well. We’re both really happy and living life.
I got a new Alienware computer from Dell, so that Rachel could have my Acer laptop. She has a laptop but it is very old and even requires an external monitor just to see the picture because the laptop monitor is shot. Pictures of the Alienware below. It is quite awesome and I have been playing Watch Dogs on it, which is the most epic game I have played in awhile. It is like Grand Theft Auto meets Assassin’s Creed but in the modern day!
Other than that, things have been quite peaceful. Bobbie has been getting along well to all the changes and he and Oli have become best buds. It’s really cute to see them getting along. They aren’t exactly all buddy buddy with each other yet, but they play and rub noses and can be in the same room with each other without freaking the fuck out, which is an accomplishment! Speaking of Oli, I really thought she had killed Rachel the other day, I heard her vacuuming in the second bedroom (which has become totally fucking epic btw and I will be posting pics here in a sec) and all I hear is Rachel screaming”OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWE!” and I mean SCREAMING, like at the top of her lungs.
I am freaked out because I have no idea what the hell is going on so I rush in the room only to see Oli with all four of her paws in the air in attack mode leaping at Rachel, hissing, growling, spitting like the craziest fucking cat I have ever seen in my life. I go “what’s going on?!” and suddenly Oli comes at me growling and hissing, gets me somewhat in the leg… next thing I know Bobbie comes in, walks between everybody, sees what is happening, turns right around and shits in the living room.
This somehow seemed to calm Oli down and she hasn’t done that since, thank God. She had just got spayed literally a few days prior to this happening, so we think it was just because she was high on pain medicine or feeling sensitive from being spayed. Looking back at it now, we laugh every time and wish we had got it on camera. Bobbie’s reaction was totally priceless. We read that it is perfectly normal for cats to behave like this after being spayed, which is the only reason we would actually laugh about it. She has shown some strange aggressive tendencies, but from what we understand and have researched, it’s a typical thing.
So, on to the second bedroom. We bought an awesome futon for it and have rearranged it so that it’s actually a guest bedroom for when we decide to have our parents come out. I will be taking more updated pics as they come, because we have been dishing out a few things here and there for the bedroom to make it a bit more homely. Rachel has claimed her stake on the room and is designing it, since most of the stuff in the apartment was already mine when she moved in, and she deserves to have a room that she designs for herself (though we re running stuff by each other so it is something we can both agree on).
I really need to get more pics of this because we have rearranged and done a lot of work on the room and it looks awesome. We got a new dresser for the bedroom and a new lamp:
We also got some epic artwork in the kitchen:
The apartment just looks amazing. I can’t get over how good it looks. As soon as the lease runs out in 2014, we are going to be moving into a house. We are going to rent to start, and then when we’ve accumulated enough savings, think about going somewhere more permanent to buy a house. You never know what life is going to throw at you though, I can’t talk about it a whole lot, but at my job we are on a contract to contract basis, that contract, for all I know, could run out any time and not be renewed. Just a couple years ago the company split into two companies (Marathon Oil and Marathon Petroleum) and even way back when we didn’t know what the fuck was gonna happen. Life is just unpredictable. Do I think I’ll lose my job? No. Is it a possibility? Yes. But I always like to look on the bright side since we have such a high reputation with Marathon Oil.
That pretty much about does it. Here’s a couple cute pics of me and Bobbie after I took him for a walk a little bit ago:
Thanks for reading guys and I hope you have a good weekend!!
