Days 13-17 of #100happydays

The past couple days have been a complete whirlwind, so I apologize for being MIA with my #100happydays challenge posts. My life has changed quite a bit.

First, Curtis and I spent the weekend moving into our new place. We had a lot of help from our family and friends. We are officially out of the basement dungeon and into a bright, three-bedroom, main floor of a house. And we are loving every second of it.

Some areas are more organized than others, but it’s starting to come together. I finally get my own office! Curtis gets a man cave as well. I’m still waiting on most of my books – I stored them in Leduc at my grandparents when I was in moving limbo for the past month – and the office will look a little more complete. My parents are also taking care of Neville, my little bunny furbaby, and I will get him back soon as well. Just need to find time for a trip out to the farm!

Yesterday we were starting to feel pretty settled in. The living room and kitchen are more or less done, and the bathroom and our bedroom are not far behind. Just when we started to feel organized, we went and picked up theĀ other furbabies. I was expecting chaos bringing two little playful kittens into the house – but the good kind of chaos! We were so excited to bring them home. Well, this has been about all the chaos that we’ve seen so far…

The handsome little man in the tuxedo is Leonardo DeCatrio, and the mostly white guy is Wickham. Curtis and I are so smitten with these little kittens. Leo has taken to Curtis – following him around, sleeping right on him. Wickham is my little buddy. He curls up by my feet when I’m standing and doing the dishes, he naps right next to me on the couch as I’m on my laptop, and he stares me down with his little green eyes. These two brothers are great friends. We can’t wait to watch them grow up and into our little family. Thank you so much to Zoe’s Animal Rescue Society for giving us these little furry and purring bundles of joy.

I’m still working on settling into a routine here at the new house. I’m such a creature of habit, so I feel a bit out of my element right now. It will probably take a week or two for me to settle in and feel at home. But am I ever excited that Curtis and I have our own home – devoid of roommates and with tons of space for each of us. Now I just have to go grocery shopping so we actually have something to eat!

Day 7 of #100happydays – Bunnies at the Pet Expo

Day 7 of my #100happydays challenge, and I ended up being let off work early – which itself was a pretty happy moment. Curtis and I decided to use the rest of the afternoon to check out the Edmonton Pet Expo. There were puppies everywhere, and we even got to meet and talk to the foster mom of the kitten we are in the process of adopting!

Since I moved out of my apartment and am in a bit of a limbo waiting to take possession of our new place, my parents have been bunny-sitting Neville. I miss that little guy like crazy. So you can imagine my excitement at getting to see a bunch of bunnies today at the show! Not just bunnies that I got to hold and cuddle, but some really impressive ones that were running obstacle courses!
