House Plans

Advertisements

Alright, I finally figured out what I want to do with my trailer. After planning and putting the numbers together, I’ve got a plan. This is so exciting. My place has some, issues in my brain. I’m ready to move on! Sorry this is late by the way.

My Current Place

So, my current trailer is worth money. I figure, sell this one and have it taken off my lot. Right? That makes sense. However, my trailer is two stuck together, so whoever buys it, technically only gets half. That’s still a two bed one bath trailer though. And this whole side has been rebuilt since all the renovations I did. The more I think about it, the more I’m torn. Selling it would help so much, but then what if it doesn’t sell?

If I Can’t Sell

I’m going to rent a bulldozer. Running over this trailer will feel so good. So I double checked with management, I’m not allowed to run it over. Going that route would mean doing it without consent. But the free therapy…

I’ll Still Need A Place To Live Though

And with that, there’s a few companies in town that actually sell modular and mobile homes. I’ve been in contact and have some rough quotes on what I’d need. With this new job, I don’t think I’d have to work a whole year to save up enough! But we’ll see, it’s up to the bank after all. Brand new modular homes are cheaper than condo’s, so I could do it if I tried.

Models? Size? Floor Plans?

This has been the best part! I love looking at floor plans for places and just seeing where I’d put everything. I’ve got a rough idea on the size of place I want, but I’m aiming for at least a 3 bed and 2 bath place. A bedroom for my work from home office and our (my boyfriend and I’s) computers, and then my current roommate and a place to sleep. It would be a HUGE upgrade from what I’ve got, but the biggest thing is the space. I don’t want to outgrow it too quickly. Or even if I grow out of it, if I take good enough care of it, sell it and look at a real house in the future. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

My plans are just starting to really flow, so I’ll have more info soon, stay tuned! And be safe out there!

My Body Hurts

Advertisements

Yesterday (at the time of writing this) my roommate convinced me to climb Boucherie Mountain again. We’ve been walking around it to get some good mileage in. Well, she did a good job. Here are some pictures from out first real hike of the year!

We tried to be up before the sun came up, but the sun beat us (bully). Even though we couldn’t beat the sun, this view is just perfect. Onto breakfast, picnic style! Midna is such a good girl, she loves hiking with us! Sitting and waiting for mum and mum to finish their breakfast though, not so much. My feet are sore and my lungs are sad, but this is some great quality time! Well, back down the mountain I guess.

It’s just after 8:30am and I just got out of the shower. My feet still hurt and breakfast wasn’t enough, so I’m going to go cook something. Calorie burning makes one hungry. I love the views up there so much, I hope you enjoy them too!!!! Climbing the mountain is and always will be worth every minute it takes. 

Be safe out there, especially if you live near me with all the bears, mosquitoes, and rattlesnakes!

Went Out Again

Oh, my goodness! I get to go for a walk with the boyfriend and his precious pup too??? FRICK YEAH!

We ended up going the wrong way and walking way too far. My feet hurt and my legs are aching. And my underwear was rubbing my legs wrong so that fabric burn is just… Great… Tonight, dinner and relaxing on the couch, and only that. Catch everyone tomorrow morning.

The Next Morning

My feet and legs are surprisingly okay today! My hip on the other hand, is straight up fucked. Standing in the mirror, I don’t know if it’s my brain or what, but my butt also looks extra good today too. Maybe Onlyfans isn’t too distant of a dream..

Story Time

Back in high school I took dance instead of the P.E. class. And one day I decided I was going to try my hand at a pirouette, or three, and I landed very wrong. Turns out there isn’t much muscle in my hip and the bone grinded on the other bone and… yeah… Long story short my hip is messed up and will be for a long time. Slow muscle gain can help a lot, at least that’s what I was told years ago. Since then, I started working my hip more through basic workouts. 

But Yeah

I had a fun day. Between the mountain, both my dog children, and the sense of adventure, it was a great day. Thanks for coming with, and have a great day!

Stories From Recently

Life has been quiet lately. I’m mostly streaming, so I haven’t really been out. Well, that and I have no real reason to go out right now. But there are some, interesting interactions I’ve had that stuck with me. So, I’ll share some today. As well as some updates overall. With life being quiet, I’m thinking of changing up my schedules. 

(TW Body Image)

My amazing wife wanted to look at some shoes. Shoes are fun, and the mall is a fun trip to make, so off we went. The bus ride in was quiet. We were basically the only passengers for the first half of the ride. The mall is one of my least favourite places in the world. It’s draining and likes to remind me that I’m not as thin as I could be. Especially Garage (the clothing store). Back when I was in high school, there was a crop top I loved. I needed it in an XL (or extra large). Naturally, asked an employee who said to me, “we don’t sell clothes to fat people”. In high school I was maybe 90lbs, severely underweight and had a toxic relationship with food. So as one could imagine, I avoid that store now as best I can.

In Case You Couldn’t Tell

We stopped there. By now we’ve walked around a decent piece of the mall and all the models in windows and constant watching and worrying about everyone around me, I was out of my “customer service” voice. Now at the till, there’s only one open right now, which makes sense, and the person in front of us in line is a new employee trying to get her new discount. Everyone is new at some point, so like, have at ‘er, we’ve got time. Took a few minutes, and in that time, another employee said we could download their app for a discount. We decline, and it’s downhill from here. 

I’m A Dick

Our turn. This employee is adorable, I very much loved her hair. And she does her job “do you have our app,” I messed up. I declined this time, and aggressively. My tone of voice went straight “Karen”, and I didn’t even notice… When we walked out, my wife then decided to tell me, instead of WHEN WE WERE IN THERE SO I COULD APOLOGIZE! I felt terrible! This poor employee even asked for another staff member to come to the desk just in case. JUST IN CASE!!! I’m the worst!

Doctors and Older People

Sitting in a waiting room, an older gentleman sits across from me. Why not start a conversation? We talked for like, a half hour-ish. About everything too; doctors, moving, and living in a world like this. This lovely guy moved here from Hope, which is a small enough town everything is closed on weekends. It’s also in the bottom of a valley, so the weather is an issue and lack of doctors are just not making that a good home anymore. And he moved there from Surrey. Having a conversation with someone, and such a quality one too, that guy really made my day. I didn’t get his name though. 

And Now, Updates

Life is quiet and I’m not as busy as I used to be. I’m going to cut back posts for awhile. At least until the weather warms up and I can share hiking again. I’m going to try a post a week, but if I still don’t have much to talk about, I’ll be one a month. I’ll still be streaming, and I am on both Instagram and Twitter quite a lot. Make sure to follow me to see my new posts and updates!

And thank you for stopping by. You are amazing and I hope you have an amazing day!

Housing Differences

Advertisements

I know and I’m sorry. But homes are fun to look at! I, yet again, fell in love with a house that I currently cannot afford. There’s a place up in the fancy residential area going for $675,000. I say fancy, anything under a million is the “standard” in my part of the world.

This particular place I’m looking at has a separate driveway even. A nice back yard, and the upstairs is about three of my trailers stuck together. That kind of space is nuts! Having a room just for my computer is like, a dream I never thought I could achieve, but running the numbers, I bet I could do it this year. Especially if I try hard enough, I could easy get a place this year.

Even looking from $500k to $600k is a crazy change a lot of the time. A lot of places in the five range don’t have things like a suite, or an unfinished suite. Whereas a 600 home has a full suite already and considered legal. My big thing is, for  me to afford a house and not be completely reliant on a co-signer is I need a suite.

Do I Really Need A Suite?

The average basement suite in my part of the world goes for like, $1200 to $1500 for a single bedroom a month. That’s like, half a mortgage on a home that’s $500k-$600k. See why I said I need a renter.

I Mostly Want Something New

So I have more space to grow. My trailer would be great if it were say, just me, or me and one other person, but two people, two cats and a decent sized dog… I want me family to live comfy, ya know?

The only reason I can do all of this is because of this trailer though. This place has been home for so many years, and I can’t really see myself living anywhere else, but this is something I really want to do. Plus like, unless the world dies, I own a house doing that. It just feels like the next step in my life I want to take.

But yeah, that’s my life today. Next to working out with my roommate. I’m going to go make lunch. Have a good day and be safe out there!

There is a Potato Museum

Advertisements

Guys, guys, guys, there’s a potato museum. Now, as you know, I’m a po-ta-hoe and love potatoes! Maybe that’s my inner Englishman just craving a good side of mashed potatoes, (I’m pretty sure that’s a German thing but shhhh…). This museum is in PEI and all things considered, that isn’t that bad. I live in BC if you didn’t know, so I would have travel to the east coast . For potatoes, it’s worth it. In light of my discovery, should I share potato recipes? Or maybe some crafts and such? Potatoes.

Prince Edward Island huh? I’ve never been to an island on the east coast, so that trip would be one for the books! I just looked it up, I can drive there! Without traffic, it’s a fifty-five hour drive. I’m excited, don’t mind me. I’m reading a “12 Top-Rated Tourist Attractions” post for PEI, and it’s very old fashioned, the province that is. Aww, it’s the smallest province, isn’t that cute! I’m not very good at being a tourist, I find I often get bored. So, finding stuff to do ahead of time helps me a lot, and hopefully bringing people with. Being a coastal province, there are lighthouses! Oh frick yeah I want to go for sure!

Friend overseas taking awesome pictures again

I’ve pulled up a list of restaurants in the surrounding area of the museum, and there isn’t much. In fact, there’s really nothing out there at all. This part of O’Leary? is very family oriented. A local hospital, schools and quite a few parks are all that really fills the space out there. Well, dang. The bridge to drive onto the island must be quite the sight, and happened to be finished the year I was born too. Like, that just sounds awesome! The shots you could get on that bridge, oh I’m excited thinking about it! Wait, is it a toll bridge?

I’ve never been that far east before in Canada, so that trip would be so awesome! Planning a trip around on particular sight is something I’ve done before. My trips to England are usually based around one particular thing I need to see, and then the rest of the trip falls in place. Other than that, I’m not sure what else there is to do besides hike, which I’m in to for sure!

Like, look at these!

That’s all I have for today though. Thanks for stopping by, and be safe out there! And stay warm! It’s snowing here and I’m excited!
