Yippee, Chris is finally here. Actually he arrived on the afternoon of the 31st, and i was basically too sick to entertain him in the way that most of you might suppose i would be entertaining him, but he was awfully tired himself from an extra 3 days worth of journeying (and being stuck helpless in Des Moines) so it worked out just fine.

He says being here is like going to sleep in December and waking up in June, as far as the temperatures go. It's been consistently 70-80 degree weather for the past few weeks. Hard to imagine this as a high, when all around me people (chicken-bloods such as myself) are wearing fleece and sweatpants--Chris is sporting t's and shorts, and noticing the strength of the sun even in the off season.

We spent New Year's Day at the sweat, lolling about with other like-minded folk and taking in the sun's rays and the cleansing properties of steam. I declined to go in the sweat as i felt lizard-like and didn't want to exacerbate any of my URI symptoms--Chris went in for a couple of rounds and seemed to enjoy the day.

Since then we've done some shopping, a bit of bike-riding, a little movie-watching, and a lot of dog walking! (Don't even ask about the extracurricular activities. I'm not saying anything except, big grin, "we are very compatible"!)

Angus and Sun Bear aren't too sure what to make of the suddenly ever-present extra human being--Sun Bear is too mellow to do much objecting, but Angus has stopped sleeping on the bed at night and whines every time we embrace, which is often. He's not aggressive about it, just concerned--I think. But they are getting 2 walks a day now, not just one, and both of them love the extra outing. It's a lot easier to manage with company, that's for sure!

The next school session begins tomorrow, and i'll need to be at work at 8. This is way different from Chris' last visit, when i took a complete time-out from my working life--now i'll be working and he'll be doing whatever he feels like! But so far, so good--so far, very good! After 4 days, i'm declaring this experiment a wonderful success!

Ciao for now!

I'd be running nekkid in that weather. LOL! It was 30 today here and I was thrilled to not have to wear a coat.
I'm glad you two crazy kids are enjoying each other's company. Don't be wasting all of that good energy on work little lady. :)

It sounds like everything is going great. Tell Chris the weather here in MN has been terrible. We haven't seen the sun in over 2 weeks. At least I too, have a little sunshine in my life.......

Keep the posts coming.....

I will take the higher path and not probe. Partnering is uncharted territory, huh.

(Just kidding... but a post would be nice... even though I don't have a lot of room to talk.)
