How we decided to mark his/hers on our walk-in closet. Yes, that is Iron Man and Iron Patriot masks. They glow in the dark! Can you guess who is who?

Hello my lovely readers!

Someday, some archivist will look back at this blog and go “Why is it called Friday Fun when it’s never on a Friday?!”  I will leave that mystery up to you, future archivist, to discover on your own.

So!  On July 2nd I turned 27 and suddenly I had to start ticking off late 20s on everything. I joke about being upset about it, but I’m really not. My late 20s are turning out much much better than the rest of them *knock on wood*, so I really can’t complain.  Also I honestly like myself a lot better at 27 than I did at any age prior, and who can complain about that? It is fun to joke around with bf about me being old since he’s still in his mid-20s though.

Speaking of, I brought him home to meet my family, and it’s the first time that’s ever happened, so you should kind of be able to imply what a big deal that is.  My family was awesome and very welcoming, and everyone got along just fine, and it was lovely!  My dad even taught us how to make doughnuts from scratch while we were home.  It was just that awesome.  Also, also we celebrated the 4th with them, and my uncle got fireworks to set off in the backyard.  I’ve been in the city for so long, I hadn’t had a chance to do that in forever, and I really enjoyed it.

So as soon as we got back from that adventure, we had to start working on moving.  With the way the rental market is in Boston right now, we decided to have him move into what was my place (what is now our place) with me and rent a garage nearby for his motorcycles (there are 5).  He gave notice and had to be out by July 31st, but really we had to do it quicker than that since he was going away on a mini-vacation with his dad at the end of the month, so we wound up doing it all in 2 weeks, and honestly it was incredibly stressful, mostly because we had to spend so much time apart sorting shit in our own apartments.  I had to morph everything I own down into half the apartment, and he had to do the usual sorting that happens when you move.  Honestly, most of the choices we had to make were surprisingly easy. We have a lot in common, and we stressed out far more over worrying about making the other person comfortable than over the actual choices when it came down to it.  As of today, we’re officially living together, and honestly it’s the best feeling ever. I get to come home to my person and my kitty every day, and it’s just wow. That’s what home is supposed to feel like, y’know?

I’m pretty proud of myself, given all of these goings-on, that I managed to finish 4 books this month.  Two of them were audiobooks, and that makes total sense.  I could listen while I sorted and packed.  Three of them have yet to be reviewed here, so hopefully I’ll get those reviews up soon.

I’m incredibly happy it’s finally August!! Although it will still be a bit eventful.  I’m meeting my bf’s mother and one of his sisters, it’s the busiest month in the calendar at my job, and I’m getting my wisdom teeth out. Phew!

How was everyone else’s July? Did you have more time for the beach than me?
