And So Life Goes On

How are you, gen­tle read­ers? Long time no update. Things have been crazy these last cou­ple of weeks with Troy’s grand­pa get­ting sick, one of Troy’s cousins passed away, and on the day of her funer­al, Troy’s grand­pa passed away. In addi­tion, I’ve been down with a nasty cold since last week.

We made some efforts to cheer our­selves up this past week­end by going to a con­cert and see a movie, but it didn’t quite work out because, well, both the artists we saw at the con­cert (Cana­di­an artists named Sarah Slean and Roy­al Wood, in case you’re curi­ous) had to men­tion some­thing about their grand­par­ents pass­ing away and sang sad songs about them. Seri­ous­ly, what are the odds?

And then of course I had to sug­gest that we went to see a movie called Young@Heart with­out think­ing that it could poten­tial­ly make us sad again. The movie is a doc­u­men­tary about a group of senior cit­i­zens who sing punk rock songs (among oth­ers) in a cho­rus and a cou­ple of the cho­rus mem­bers died dur­ing the film­ing. :( It was a good movie nonethe­less. I’d high­ly rec­om­mend it. Check out the trail­er.

Every­thing else seems to have tak­en a back­seat late­ly. I haven’t tak­en any pic­tures oth­er than snap­shots in ages. We haven’t bought any­thing for the house in a cou­ple of weeks. At least my plant col­lec­tion is still going strong, though I think I’ve killed my lychee plant. But my avo­ca­do plant is grow­ing like crazy!

Um, what else? Tomor­row is our anniver­sary. We will have been mar­ried for 3 years! Woo! I think we’re going to a schnitzel place for our anniver­sary din­ner. And then we’re going to go up to the cot­tage the week­end after this week­end to spend some time with friends, play a lot of board games and eat a lot of meat. Should be fun.

There isn’t real­ly much else to report. Hope­ful­ly excit­ing things will start hap­pen­ing again.

  1. Hap­py Anniver­sary guys!! Sounds like it’s been a bit rough late­ly — I hope that time and love will com­fort (and friends and cot­tages and good food…!). Will see you soon.

  2. Hi there. Found your blog via an auto­mat­ic lay­out gen­er­a­tor at Fir­damat­ic some time ago. Just want­ed to tell you to keep tak­ing pic­tures… your human shots are very nice in terms of col­or and move­ment. Take care. Pat
