New Home

We've been in our new home for almost a month now but we haven't been able to fully move in yet because we are waiting for the carpeting in all the bedrooms. The stink of dogs has been eliminated thankfully but it's been a lot of work and money as almost all of the baseboard and baseboard heaters have been peed on. And we even had to replace a few doors as the pee made the bottom of them swell, so that not even paint could have fixed them.

But things are coming along and we love this town/city. The temperature is at least 10 degrees warmer than our old town and we relish the choice in things like shopping, dining and entertainment. Jason is finding it somewhat stressful that his new job is very much stress free :-). He's been working under pressure for so long now that he thought he wasn't working hard enough if there is no stress. He is learning to be more chill!!

We purchased a new diningroom table because our old one didn't fit the esthetic of our new house.




I have spent most of my time working on our patio area while the weather is still warm and since I can't do much upstairs yet. I think I've made a nice transition from the old to the new.



Jason wanted me to make a zen garden and I had a lot of fun picking plants and such for the project.




My favourite purchase though has been a new treadmill which we bought because without a second vehicle it would be hard for me to get to a gym. We have installed it in our garage which is still full of stuff but I get an excellent view when I open the door.



We will be turning the garage into a studio space for me and I can't wait! All in all I am quite happy here and feel more alive than I did in the eleven years in that isolated little town.

Stupid LJ app won't let me resize images and now when I click the tab to add a picture it crashes. 😖 very frustrating!

We are in the process of moving down island. We're very excited about living in a more civilized place and being 2 hours closer to the ferry. Jason has secured a job that he thinks may be a much better fit for him and even though he will be taking a cut in pay, he feels that he will quickly work his way back to what he gets now. So Hawai'i may be a few years away, hopefully as they say "a change is as good as a vacation".

We are also in the process of buying a beautiful townhouse but I'll wait until it's for sure before I post pics, which I will probably do because I really love it. We are getting it for less than the current owner paid for it in 2012 because she let her two dogs pee all over all of the carpeting which is on the top floor and the stairs. So we will be ripping carpets out the first night there and then having new carpet installed hopefully really quick.

The whole place is also very dirty but its nothing a little elbow grease and new paint won't fix.

I can't tell you how happy I am about getting out of this small nothing town!

Last weekend we went to Vancouver and had a blast!

Friday night we went to The Roxy night club. We have never been dancing because jason doesn't dance. He knows that I love dancing (I used to be a Disco Queen) so he wanted to take me.

Test

Just testing the update for the LJ app and to see how well videos post.

Hmmm apparently it won't let me post videos!

In the famous words of Gilda Radner as Emily Litella..... "Never mind."

A few of my favourite images from yesterday when we were invited to go for a boat ride.
Amazingly beautiful sunny day for February!



I apologize if you're on my Instagram and are seeing these again but I think they might be worth seeing twice :-).

Wishing all my LJ friends a very Happy New Year :-). We had a quiet night


And had Apple crisp and ice cream for supper and then toasted the hour with BC bubbly.
I have a feeling that 2015 is going to be a good year!

I'm so proud of my son Logan, he doesn't drink or do drugs and last night his girlfriend who is a nurse had to work all night so Logan posted his phone number on FB and instagram and told people that he was bored and wanted all his friends to get home safe so to text or call him for a ride home. He got 16 people home safe and sound! I am forever proud of all my kids and it's because of how they've turned out hat I feel accomplished.

My New Years resolution is to post more on LJ and my blogger account as I feel bad about not participating more.


My oldest son Donovan and my grandson Oliver, I hope to see more of both of them this year. I feel like I'm missing so much living so far away.
