When Does It Count?

Jason is moving in. (This is both scary and exciting.) However, it is a long process and I don't know when to really decide that he has MOVED IN.

We haven't spent the night seperatly since the start of September, we have spent the night apart but never seperatly with each sleeping in their own apartment (instead, only apart at night when one of us is crashing at a friend's place.)

The King Size Bed is now at Rrunuv Bayit (much thanks to Kristen & Noah for helping with that) but he could still sleep at his old place since there is still a futon there.

Yesterday, there was a huge move of pretty much all the major items and furniture (huge thanks to Rob and Jason's brother-in-law). His computer is set up at Rrunuv Bayit though we haven't sorted out getting the internet to the back room being used as an office so it isn't super functional at the moment. He also could also work back at his old place on his laptop and he hasn't cancelled things yet so the internet would probably still work.

He is still paying rent at his other place and we haven't totally sorted out rent splitting yet for Rrunuv Bayit.

I think it will be OFFICIAL at the end of October when he is 100% out of his apartment and then we will be totally and utterly living together. (I am still finding this a very exciting but also overwhelming prospect.)

Yelling At Strangers

Sometimes I just want to have someone drive me around Toronto so I can lean out of the passenger-side window and tell bareheaded bicycle riders, "Wear a fucking helmet!" It drives me crazy to see so many people who don't. Idiots!

Two Is Helping

Two is a very helpful kitten. She loves to help with the cleaning and now she is helping with renovations. My parents are visiting and helping with some work at Rrunuv Bayit before Jason moves in. We rent so obviously the renos are pretty much just painting. I am switching the colour of this side table to match the new room colours and had taken it apart to prime it.

We All Grow Up

Summer weekends get so crazy! Jason and I have been very busy. I can't remember when either of got a day to sleep in, let alone a day when we both had time off together. With this last long weekend of the summer, I asked Jason if we could spend the entire Monday in bed.

I remember early in Jason and my relationship we could spend entire weekends in bed: talking, reading, fooling around, napping, watching TV, laughing, etc. I wanted to recreate that feeling; those days could turn into a full weekend and it was always such a joyful blur of time.

Well, a year later things are different, the day didn't speed by in a blur. I had a great time spending a relaxing day in bed, but I spent more time than I would have liked worrying about things I needed to do in the coming week, both for work and other things. A year later and the blur is gone, however, Jason is still amazing and I think I will always love spending a day in bed with him: talking, reading, fooling around, napping, watching TV, laughing, etc.

Time didn't blur but joy is still there.

Day Off - Pants Off

It is Labour Day and I am thoroughly enjoying not having to go to work on a grey Toronto Monday. I have decided to celebrate by refusing to put pants on all day. No Pants!

A Wonderful Wedding

I had a great time last night at Jason's friend's wedding. It was the perfect combination of sweetness and fun; it was beautiful while still being a total blast!
