Another year has passed without my updating this thing. Oh well.
On July 17, 2017, Don and I got married. We got married at the Cheboygan courthouse with my parents as witnesses and then went to the park on the beach in Cheboygan to take some photos. It was a nice day. The day before that I stopped working at the gas station in Indian River. We had paid off the property, finally, and things were getting really stupid at that job, like a lot of customer hostility and they were only scheduling us to work 1 person at a time during the insanely busy summer months and we couldn't get the cleaning jobs done and then we'd get chewed out because we couldn't get the cleaning jobs done. Stupid. Don said I don't have to work anymore if I don't want to because we're financially stable enough now, so I took him up on his offer to let me stop working. If I do have to go back to work later it won't be in customer service because I'm sick of being treated like I'm not a human being and like I'm not of any worth. I'll find somewhere where I can be shut in the back running a dish machine, or something like that, where I will never see customers. A person's self esteem can only take so many beatings.
On July 23rd the internet stopped working and Frontier refused to fix the problem, so we canceled our service and went without internet for 7 months. I had to give up on YouTube vlogging except for a few very rare, special videos since we had no way to upload except trying to find public wifi, which is not of very good quality in this town. So I decided to shut down the TkDw Vlogs channel (I didn't delete it, but nothing new will ever go up there again) and start using Don's channel instead, which I've named Wilton Adventure Vlogs. There's quite a few videos up there now because we were finally able to get internet through Verizon, if you want to check it out, just search the name. It's not daily anymore, but I try to get videos up pretty frequently. Right now I'm sick with a cold, so I haven't felt like filming for a couple days, but maybe I will tomorrow.
As for art I've done none except for 2 pages in the 500 Drawing Prompts book and a few adult coloring book pages. It's all here in my gallery.
We haven't gone to any concerts since the We the Kings/AJR in Detroit weekend last year. We just haven't had that kind of extra money and the shows are always so far away since there are no venues in this part of the state. But that's okay, I'm sure we will go to more shows someday.
I had to retire my car and we started using Don's car because the underside of my car is starting to rust out and it's becoming unsafe. Don will try to weld the rusted spot later, but until then we're just using his car.
Our black cat Sammy passed away in February, but in October we got a little yellow kitten we named Gizzard and he's 6 months old now and doing fine. We do miss poor Sammy, though. Tug and Eevee are doing fine. We babysat Don's sister Becky's Alaskan Malamute Roxy for 3 1/2 months this year because her landlord sold the building to a new landlord who changed the rules to no pets, but Roxy is very dog aggressive (and aggressive to any other animals, too), so she couldn't stay here without our pets being unsafe, so Becky recently found her a new home with an old man who has no other pets.
I've been reading the Warriors books by Erin Hunter (even though I'm 42, lol) and I'm taking a break from those right now to read Stephen King's It, which is ridiculously long. We recently watched the first season of Westworld, which was really awesome, and we enjoyed The Good Doctor and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World when they were on. Now we're watching the new season of Roseanne and it's just as good as it always was.
As for weight I have majorly failed there. I lost 150 lbs. in 2014, but I've gained almost all of it back and I cannot get back into the same mindset I was in in 2014. It really sucks, but it's nobody's fault but my own. At tax time I got a FitBit and I enjoy making my daily step goal, but the weather has sucked here lately for walking, with snowstorms galore even though it's spring, but I'm also too lazy to want to ride the exercise bike anymore, so again, my fault. I'm hoping to get back on track because I don't feel or look worth a shit anymore.
I guess that's all for now. See you in a year or 2 mostly likely, lol.
