Love Hate Weather Relationship

I have a severe love/hate relationship with the weather were I live. I love it because of this:

Because how can you not love having a view like that? Autumn is by far my favorite time of year.

But then, it also brings the snow, and we won’t get into my snow hatred yet. Although it will probably snow tonight just to spite me now that I’ve brought it up and thought about it.

But what I hate about autumn in specific in Ohio is the yo-yo’ing temperatures. Granted, I love 60 degree daytime temps, don’t get me wrong. But the 30 degree mornings? They too would even be okay if it didn’t go from 30 in the morning to 60-70 in the day and then back down again. All that does is make me miserable with sinus and allergy congestion.

So here I am, feeling miserable during my favorite time of year. Gotta love it.

What season do you have a love/hate relationship with?


Again with the new job?

Yeah, I got a new job…. again. Seems as though it’s becoming a trend for me, eh? But this is it for a long time. I am finally where I want to be. I just kept looking while working at other places, and now I have happily landed back in my field of choice, advertising. I started at the end of October and worked from home for a week as the new office was being painted and prepped for us to move in. I’ve been working in office for a little over a week now and it’s awesome!

I don’t have a technical title yet, as they wanted to bring me in and see where everything falls before I get a “title”. Currently my title would be PPC/SMO monkey. I got handed my first big client and have been spending alot of time in AdWords and Analytics, working on a local social media campaign for them, and writing monthly stats reports for them and another client.

But, I love it. I never really thought I would be into advertising, but I am. I love working in AdWords and Analytics, writing up a social media strategy for a company, and spending hours researching effective marketing tools to make a campaign go perfectly. I’m super stoked about this field, my new job, my new company and were we will go.

The only downside I have is a 2 hour a day commute. An hour in and an hour back. But if thats the worst part, I can’t complain at all.


Proof That My Animals Are Odd

Not that I needed actual proof. I knew this already. While out buying cat litter one night at a local pet shop we had just found we came across the cutest little rabbit. Wanting a friend for Chloe still, we couldn’t pass him up, so we bought him and brought him home. After pondering over names (I wanted Kirby, Bill wanted Cribbs) we agreed on naming him Austin. Not willing to take any risks, Bill and I went out to Lowe’s to buy the materials to build a more expansive cage like the one we had Chloe in. After being up until 2 am throwing it together, it was done. We now call it the bunny condo:

A couple of days later I was looking into the sunroom to check the rabbits water and I see Zedd sleeping in Austin’s side with Austin. At first we were sort of worried, but when I pulled Zedd out Austin actually appeared to be upset. So I put him back and just kept an eye on it. Now, Zedd and Bella both like to sleep in Austin’s side with him, and cuddle with him while they do it.

Not that I need more proof that our animals are odd or anything. But seriously, a cat cuddling with a rabbit?

This doesn’t even include our kitten rescue Chase’s newest trick with Bill:

LOLcats doesn’t quite cover it for my house. LOLanimals is more like it. At least I can say there is never a dull moment in my house.


Day 06 – Your day

Today is our typical lazy Sunday. Bill and I were up late last night building a new bunny condo so we slept in till about 10 am, which is super late for us. We got up and got the dogs up, then scooped the cat boxes and spent some time with the kitties, and then with the bunnies. I got our new bunny Austin out (Poppy got very sick and passed away last week, so Bill let me get a new bunny yesterday, pictures to come soon). After cuddling with Austin and petting Chloe for a bit we got dressed and headed out to pick up Bill’s friend Jason to watch the Browns game.

We ran to Walmart quickly to pick up hamburger for tonight’s dinner (chili) and picked up Subway for lunch while we were there. Since then we have been vegging out on the couch watching football. I sat for a bit and tried to use my “Learn to Knit” book and a website, but failed miserably and got confused about casting on. Tonight will be spent cooking said chili, eating, watching more football, and possibly some laundry.

How has your Sunday been? Is Sunday your lazy day?
