a change will do you good

Although it doesn’t look any different to you guys as you read this

The ‘backstage’ area of the website has been upgraded to a new version of the blogging software that I use

Which is kinda cool

But it also kinda sucks arse

‘Cause for the last two days, I’ve logged in to write up a new post

And didn’t have a fucking clue couldn’t navigate my way around the new layout

And of course now I can’t remember what I was even going to say on those other posts that I couldn’t write

But I’m pretty sure they were awesome

With a touch of genius

And of course funny as fuck

So, cause I drink too much and have no brain cells now all I have is this post

Which isn’t really about anything much so far is it?

Yeah, sorry ’bout that


I’ve spent the last 24 hours browsing the internet with Diamond

Looking at houses

Diamond has ALWAYS wanted to live near water

Specifically a lake

And we’ve always said that one day, we might just get that house on the lake

But for now, with his family being here in Chiacago

And me being able to see my family a few times a year wherever I live

That this is where we’d stay


But we’ve recently found out that Diamond’s parents, Mama & Papa Diamond

Are planning to relocate to Arizona

Where Diamond’s sister is

And his only other sibling, his brother

Plans to leave Chicago as soon as his son is off to college in a few years


So we get to talking and we’re like

Remind me again why we’re staying here

The long, cold winters

The long drive to get to the nearest lake

Don’t get me wrong, Chicago is one of the best cities in the world

But we think we might just be ready for the move we’ve always been going to do

You know how everyone has that “one day” plan?

Like, “one day” when the kids are grown we’re going to…

Or “one day” I’d love to live…

I’m thinking that our “one day” is fast approaching


We went back & forth about where we’d like to go

Somewhere warmer

But not melt your tits off weather like they have in Arizona

Somewhere with lots of trees

A bit of land for the kids and the Fluffster to run around

Good schools

And of course, a lake


Now at this stage we’re still at the, “will we won’t we” stage

But it’s looking like it is something we’d really like to do

I’ve told Diamond I’m happy to move wherever

As long as there’s an airport a starbucks and a 24 hour liquor store so I can get to work


And here’s the kicker

After saying no to just about every place that each other suggested

The place we’ve agreed on?

Go ahead, feel free to laugh your boxes off

I’m chuckling as I type this…



Cue the music from Deliverence mother fuckers
