It’s Come To This

I miss Jeff a heckuvalot.  This long distance thing is getting really old, really fast.

We’re married now for god’s sake!  For the love of Pete!  For the love of all things sacred!!!  If it wasn’t for all those pesky immigration fraud cases in Canada, I could legally live + work there right now!  There’s gotta be all those bad apples in the barrel to ruin it for all of the folks who are truly in lurve!!!!  Curses!!!!!!




Jeff + I are back to the FaceTime, phone calls + exchanging of pictures throughout the day.

It’s not enough, I tell you!!!  I’m ready to start our new lives TOGETHER!!!  Together, meaning: in the same country, darn it all!!!!  Is it too much for a sister to ask?!  Dang blast it!

Even Megumi is really devastated about it all.

Look at that sad, sad feline.   Jeff + Megumi really bonded on this most recent trip.  She’s always emitting a howling, longing, deep meow.  She misses her Dad. Cat lovers take notice!  Jeff was highly allergic to Megumi, but with an air purifier, regular brushing + Allerpet C , those two are old cronies now!  Cuddling, petting + hugging!  It is possible!  Do not lose heart!!!!  Press on, cat lovers!!!

Jeff sent me a picture of our future child:

Baby Nanook, y’all.  I want to put that thing in my pocket!!!  Baby Nanook looks like he’s ready to hunt some caribou + make a sea kayak out of seal skins at the ripe old age of 2 1/2!!!!!

I’ve been so down, at work they dressed me up in some Carhartt coveralls.

Yes, coveralls make me happy.  Yes, they’re supremely unflattering!  Yes, I look like I’m wearing a mattress underneath!  But guess what?!  They are utilitarian!!!!  I don’t give a rat’s ass!!!  I’m comfortable!!!  That’s what happens when you become complacent!!!!!!!  Jeff, you better turn those immigration papers in fast!!!  Watch out, or pretty soon I’ll be wearing pajamas to work!!!

    We miss you sooo much Shelli! We hung out Saturday night, ate dinner, drank and read design books and I perved out on Jeffrey’s “Free & Easy” Mag – Drool! But it would’ve been way funner with you here. Chin up sister, you will be together again soon….
    And Baby Nanook – I want to put that in my pocket too. That baby is like the living representation of “lilo” from Lilo and Stitch! Adorable…

    I just laugh all the way to the end. As a proud future grandma I hope my grand son would look a little bit, or tiny bit, a little, little bit more handsome. To think that is not crime.
    Love mommy,

    Ah, Shelli, it breaks my heart to hear you so sad but even in coveralls you look beautiful!! Okay, and what’s with your last post of flash back shots with your buddy from high school … you totally look the same as back then?!! Freakishly flattering that you haven’t aged – at all. You and Jeff will have your own Baby Nanook one day …
