A meme started by Beth Bernobich, the idea the consent prior to intimate activity can be sexy cuz Consent is Sexy.

Martha Wells follows up with the Consent Meme.

Surprise


 
~I'm engaged~

Before anyone asks, there really wasn't a proposal involved.  It was more of a stated fact, plus we talked about it earlier prior to looking for a ring.  Booo, no romance.

By the way, I am very happy with this ring. It's a ruby. Hehehe. 

Soon, Old Guy says we can get doggies!!!! =D I am so very happy about that.  I have several dogs at the shelter in mind.  I love dogs. Love them! Horray to animals that makes life complete.

Also, even though we're broke, he's still supportive enough to look through seed catalogs with me. And we'll be working on growing and making our own food.  That means my ambition of canning shall start soon afterwards.  So excited about these new things to offset the horrors and burdens of responsibilities and bills. Ah, adulthood.  

I still prefer good romance novels. Hahaha.

Guess what?

Look who's back?

My adorable nephew. =D This was him completely pooped out at the hotel. I gave him the blankie but he was too tired to move his body onto it, so I covered him with it.  The pillow though, no problem moving that head for a greater comfort. Lol.

So, I was not being a good little writer and writing away at Nanowrimo.  Granted, I wrote a little but mostly I was busy with this:

My sister's wedding!!!

I don't have any better pictures at the moment, but once we get some, I'll see about posting more.

All I can say is: why in whatever sane person's mind would they want to through a wedding?
Oh my freaking goshes, it was beautiful and fun and wonderful but the preparations beforehand? Oh effing goshes, is the only response I have.
I am so burnt out. So so burnt out.
How can a single event for a single day costs so much money? Have so many details? Why are there so much to do? What the hecka?!?!!!
It was so exhausting and I was just the maid of honor. They even had a wedding coordinator/planner and thank goodness for that wonderful woman and her team otherwise... I would not even want to imagine.

So, while all the well-wishers at the wedding began turning the eyes towards me...my current response is a big no thank you.  Much to my parents fury. 

Cuz...wait for my next post
