I had the most hectic days of my life since the start of 2011!  2 jobs, a puppy, house hunting.  But everything is pretty much settled now.  I moved in my new house, a very cute townhouse, matter of fact, on May 12, a day after the closing date.  I'm so glad that I have all these people around me helping me out since moving by myself wasn't easy and Louie Louie (if you forget, it's my puppy's name), as much as she wished to help, I believe, couldn't do anything.  But she's been really good in our new house, she even slept in her own bed every night.  I'm having my regular single job back since May, and I have actively going to the gym 4 times a week!

Owh... have I mentioned that I just came back from my long weekend vacation to Puerto Rico?

Life has been super good!  I wouldn't complain but feeling so blessed.

Lastly, I'm sort of addicted to Tumblr these days.  I find the site more structural especially for pictures, video, audio, postings.  So I have migrated there.

Here is my Tumblr site if you are interested: Sanny's Fancy Wall

I really hope to see you there, though.

Some envy others and others don't mind

I know it's just a coincidence, but it still makes me feel like I have just jinxed it.  Earlier today I told one of my friends that finally the snowing day of the season is over.  And bhammm! here comes sudden warning that another snow is coming later tonight, for up to 6 inches.
I'm getting so used to having Louie Louie on my bed when I sleep, that I couldn't sleep well when she is not there with me.  Er... I guess I'm the spoil one here.
Best friend just told me today that he has broken up with his girlfriend.  All he could say to me was that they had too many issues and he didn't feel like working it out anymore.  Then I went to see another friend today for catching up, and all she did was reminding me of the Monsieur.
 Got this head and ears warmer from ASOS, the weather was actually above 40 degrees for the whole week and it just dropped back to 30s today that I finally got to wear it.  It was not so comfortable at first due to my floppy ear.  Hahah...

Small matters might grow

Hah!  I feel like a criminal for not making a post for more than a week.  This blog has been part of my life for half of 2010.  2011 so far has been the busiest time of my life.  Here are my list of excuses.  Pardon me.

I was offered a part time job at a CPA office.  At first, they wanted me to work twice in the weekdays from 6 to 10 PM, and Saturday 11 to 6 PM.  Now they want me to work every weekday and Saturday.  So basically I work 11 hours per day, except Saturday and Sunday!  The pay is not bad and dinner is provided, since I don't have much accounting background and experience (I got my Master in Information Systems), I think it will be a very good experience for me.  Keep telling myself to hang in there, until April 18, when tax time is over.

  Also feel guilty for Louie Louie, I only get to see her and play a little bit with her in the morning and after work.  Therefore, I bought her this sparkling black dress.  Hahah...

Found the house I really like.  It's a 3 bedrooms, 2 and a half bath townhouse with a garage and basement, and I super adore its wooden exterior and interior.  A little outside my budget but I think it's worth it!  Crossing my fingers so hard now, because I'm so close to the closing deal with the price that I offer.  I will post pictures once it's officially mine.

He is so so so adorable that I wish I could keep him in my pocket, FOREVER!  Get well soon, Mister (:

Unlike disputes, disasters are not foreseeable

The wind walks in front of us, the swinging skirts are drawing circles
The flowers are jubilant, the fragrance slightly insidious 
He was standing next to the person next me, but our shadows were shoulder-to-shoulder
I stole a glance, to see whether the side of his lips has also formed a smile

Plainly it was something that happened yesterday, but I still think about it today
One tiny bit of memory can be earth-shattering
I really want to ask him a foolish question:
If we continue on like this, where does he think we will end up?

It’s like the four seasons of a year, have been turned into summer because of him
My face is always red and burned, when facing him

Eek, I never felt this silly before!  Met someone new.  He was so awkward but I think it's so adorable.  I just can't help to giggle each time we talked.

We have had 8 snow storms since Christmas.  Can you believe that?  Here are some pictures.  I still think that snow is pretty.  But the mess that it causes, it's so whatever.  They called it the beauty that kills.

A start depends on a finish

I love life!  It's just filled with great surprises each and everyday.  I never expected 2011 to be such a busy start.  I've been really busy with work and got another raise (yay!), so it's so worth it when we are dedicated and put our heart into what we do.

We got snow here almost every week!  What's the weather at your location?
 I join the gym again with a friend, so we could motivate each other to hit the gym at least four times a week.

There's some delay with the house hunting, but I think it's better not to rush into things.  I realize buying a house is not like buying a car or dress.  Heheh!   So I decide to slow down and make sure I make the right choice.
Louie Louie is getting better.  I found someone to take care of her while I'm at work, I do have to spend some money but I think it's fine.  I have her to walk Louie Louie twice a day and brings her to the dog park to play.

Despite the fact that the Monsieur and I may never go back to that path, I'm glad to still have him around, when I need him, about anything, I know he is still there for me. 
 And gosh, I miss blogging and you guys!  My busy life has taken so much time that I barely have free time for myself to just  surf the Internet or read blogs.

A finger points, a hand joins

I was told many times to get a flu shot in each winter season.  I never bothered because I was fine each year.  Now, I've learned my lesson, it's better to prevent than cure.  I got really sick for 3 days straight and is still recovering now.  I never felt this sick before.  Glad that I'm feeling much better now.  That is also the reason why I haven't made a blog post or check out / comment on your blogs (I miss you guys heaps!).

So while I was away, these two super stylish and nice ladies, Carina of BadTasteToast and Mona of La Bohème, passed me another Stylish Blogger Award (2 awards at the same time, HURRAH!) in which I appreciate so much!  This has just made my boring resting day at home, heheh!  I'm supposed to post 7 facts about me, but I have done this before, so I'm going to share the link HERE.

Latest picture of Louie Louie.  Robyn of Twitch Vintage (psychic lady?) got it all right, Louie Louie does has 'stink eyes' (she does it so often!) and is very sassy.  She is not afraid of big scary looking dogs, she barked back at them and chased them around!  And to answer one of your questions, yes, I got her name from the song by The Kingsmen after dancing to that song a lot from the Wii (RIP).  She is still a handful, even the Monsieur said that I'm not ready to take care of anything yet but myself.

Going to take some rest now.  I'm going to save my tonight for blogs reading and comments.  Hurrah!

Bring on the wonder

9.02 AM
At work!  Since I have Louie Louie, I manage to arrive at work on time because I wake up early each day to feed her.

12.31 PM
Hurrah!  Boss has agreed to cosign for my mortgage.  I'm so excited for house hunting now.  Aiming for 3 bedrooms townhouse.

3.25 PM
Came back from checking Louie Louie.  Caught her trying to eat her own poops!
4.17 PM
Just called the vet.  He laughed at me because I sounded upset asking solution about Louie Louie eating her own poops.  But according to him, it's very normal for puppies to eat their own poops, I just have to go and pick up the medicine for that.

6.21 PM
Been talking to the Monsieur for advise about house buying.  Just glad to have him around again especially at this time because he is so familiar with this subject.

The Monsieur was so silly the other day when he tried to cheer me up with his ' cup of hot chocolate' talk.  Weeh!
6.35 PM
Got to walk Louie Louie with a friend now.

6.52 PM
Gah!  It was freezing cold out there, friend said there will be another snowstorm tomorrow.  Hope it won't be all bad this time.

10.46 PM
Washed hair and just replied an email from the Monsieur.  I'm getting more excited about getting my own place!

Will talk to best friend for a little bit, he was not so happy that I've been 'abandoning' him lately for Louie Louie.  Will then clean Louie Louie, make a blog post then call it a night.
