It's part of this nutritious breakfast!

Found this pic online, and I have to say that's over doing it just a bit. Bloody Mary with Old Bay seasoning rim.

I just read one of Rene's posts and realized you guys are still in MD. Ask your guy's friend that you're staying with for some Old Bay. I'm sure he has it. It's very popular in Maryland. You can put it on French Fries, potato chips come with it a lot of times, it goes with shrimp, and crabs! You have to at least try it before you leave!

I'm not sure where I made it sound like we were still there... Sadly, we left on the 11th!

We were originally gonna be leaving around the 31st of May, but with flights getting cancelled we were able to stretch it out to 32 days instead of 20. It was amazing getting to spend a whole month together with him! Can't wait to be back. I'm hoping that'll be early August to early September (including my birthday :D).

So far we've been spending 40% of our time physically with him despite the pandemic (with massive precautions, as you know), which is pretty cool considering he says he usually takes things slowly and he hasn't been seeing *anyone* else he knows out of concern for the virus. The rest of the time we've been IMing every day. :3

He actually went back into work for the first time in 3 months yesterday. Longest vacation he's ever had. In the end, he started DIYing and getting lots of stuff done on his house and wishing he had a few more weeks off work. :P

The other day he said "I have to shop for a 12 ft ladder and a pressure washer"
I was like "That sounds like a dangerous combination..."
Breathed a sigh of relief when he replied "Lol they are for different projects silly!" :lol:

You'll have to rush back to MD immediately. If trying Old Bay isn't the best excuse for a transatlantic flight to the boyfriends I don't know what is! :lol:

It might be a good thing he has to go back to work. If he does too much DIY, he might be more reluctant to consider moving to Scotland because of all the effort he's invested in the house!

Exactly our thinking! Although maybe he'll rent it out and the improvements will mean it'll fetch a higher rental price? Or he'll be able to sell it for more.

It's pretty exciting to think what a house we could buy here with our incomes combined... :D
I sooooo hope that'll happen.

Apparently he has to arrive at work around 7am, which seems crazy. And he's a night owl!! Maybe we can lure him here with a job opening that offers more reasonable hours :lol:

My dream would be a job that started at 7am. If they do a normal 8 hour day and they make you take a 30 min lunch break, you're out at 3:30 PM.

Long story: I had a job once where I just needed to work 8 hours and I could come and leave whenever I wanted. Of course, once the job started, that did not last due to office politics. There was already someone I worked closely with that came in early--same job level as me but had more seniority than everyone on our team.

She was always sneaking in overtime with the manager turning her head to it. The manager liked to come in at 9:30AM and would stay late. Well, when I started, and came in at 7am, and if I needed to stay after 4, it meant overtime. But they didn't want me to take overtime. But if I needed to meet with the manager later in the day, it was the only way I could do it. I didn't even want the overtime. It was just automatic after you work 8 hours. Also, since the manager usually had meetings in the AM and early afternoon, I really wanted see her until around 4pm. So without taking OT, I never really had office time with my manager, where I could build a rapport.

One of the lawyers I worked with told me that the girl who snuck in overtime once got in big trouble for it. She was making more after overtime than the lawyers were, who were salaried. I didn't last long at that job. The sneaking OT girl did not like me at all - I had no idea why at first but I think she thought I was threatening her OT and she just wasn't that smart either.

I love going to bed at like 7pm and waking up at 4 or 5 myself. I get straight on my computer and that's when I'm most productive. No emails or other distractions when everyone else is still asleep. It's just not happening now with the time difference; I would be asleep right when the boyfriend is off work in the evening. :P

I'm actually just staying on US east-coast time now for simplicity, so for me it's 7pm now. :D
Somehow I'm actually more productive thinking it's earlier... waking up at what my clock tells me is pretty early and feeling like I have the whole day ahead of me (even though Brenden would argue it's past noon or some rubbish like that :lol: I just need to convert the time for work deadlines :D).

You can at least hope!

It seems to me I've heard that for selling improvements may or may not make a difference--some apparently really add to the price, and others have no change. I'd assume this applies to renting, too.

Of course, perhaps this may help prepare him to be able to do lots of interesting projects if/when all of you buy a house together.

Well, I imagine having a clean, pressure-washed appearance, a working ceiling fan/light unit in the master bedroom, working ensuite shower and working dishwasher etc. can't hurt :D

Brenden helped him replace the ceiling fan/lights :3

He's fixing the dishwasher himself. I would have just replaced it with either a whole new one or a second-hand one, but he's just got to get out his multimeter and try opening it up and fixing it himself :P
He's a tinkerer I guess.

It can sometimes make sense repairing if you do it yourself. With some dishwashers, even professional repairs might be worthwhile.

Although I have to admit that "replace with used" would likely be my bias. Then, all of the appliances I've had dealings with in recent history have all been low end, not very good, and have lots of small issues. And, with dishwashers, there are a lot of cheap dishwashers in my area from kitchen remodel projects. The old model, which was just fine, just didn't match the new stove or the new color scheme. (Oddly, my childhood home had nothing match in the kitchen...and yet we somehow got by just fine. And I did more ambitious cooking/baking in that kitchen in the last years we lived in that house than I've done in any kitchen since.)
