I’m Human And Life Gets Hectic Sometimes

jenn and the city

Oh, hey there! How are you doing? I feel like it has been awhile since we chatted and caught up!

I’m sorry for the lack of updates here on le blogaroo. It’s been a rough couple of weeks on my end, mainly because I had to say goodbye to my best bud…my fur baby, Precious.

It’s been just over a week since I had to say goodbye to this face…and not a day has gone by that I haven’t cried. I’ve suffered through my fair share of heartbreak over the years, but nothing compares to the pain I have felt this past week. Saying goodbye to my best friend was byfar the hardest thing I have ever had to do. She offered me unconditional love over the 11.5 years we spent together and our bond was undeniable. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered their condolences, and a big thank you to everyone who has shared with me some of the memories they had with Precious. The reminder that she was loved and adored by not only me has been comforting. Precious was stubborn. Precious was set in her ways. Precious did what she wanted, when she wanted. But Precious was also fragile. She was a gentle soul, and all she ever wanted was love…both to receive and give. I wonder where she got that from? September 17, 2005 – March 15, 2017 xo

Some sort of silver lining on the rough couple of weeks though is that we found an amazing apartment! Yup, that’s right – in case you didn’t know, the BF and I are making the move to cohabitating.

*deep breaths*

While we were only searching for apartments for about 3 weeks – it was stressful AF! We’d go see one, like it enough to request an application…then find out the very next day that it had already been rented out to someone who viewed the apartment literally 15 minutes before we did. *sigh* But, we kept going and eventually snagged ourselves an amazing, and HUGE, one-bedroom.

But here’s the thing…the tenant who lived in the unit before us, lived there for 30 years…and did NO work on the apartment. So, when we went to view it, it was not in the best of shape. I’m talking – 1970’s wallpaper and all. The building management will be working on the apartment throughout the entire month of April, and have assured us all the work will be done by the time we move in on May 1, so – let’s keep our fingers crossed! LOL

When we go back in the next few days, I’m going to take some pictures so that we have a before to compare to. I’m already putting together some ideas and Pinterest boards of some DIY projects I’d love to tackle – so stay tuned to le blogaroo for those! Maybe I’ll even record some video tutorials of the projects I take on…would you guys be interested in watching those?

Anywho – after the stressful and (emotionally, mentally, and physically) draining couple of weeks I’ve had, I’m getting back into the swing of things. Meaning – back to that #bloggerlife. LOL Tonight I’m heading to the media preview for the Green Living Show.
