I'm having Christmas all over again! I've heard from DB three days in a row, 3 count them 3!! This is absolutely unheard of because he is usually very unavailable to talk online, but thankfully things have just worked out well the past few days. I also came home after visiting my parents, and after getting everything settled I checked the mail. Lo and behold, there were 2 envelopes in the mail with cards from DB! I am loving hearing from him so much!
So since we have actually had time to talk, he's been telling me about his new "fun hobby". He's been talking to one of the guys in his shop who is a former day trader and he's spent a lot of his extra time learning about the stock market. It sounds to be a lot like betting at cards, but there's a better chance that you can actually make money if you know what you're doing. Now one of my nicknames for DB is Mr. Moneybags ;)
Also, DB is head of his shop and he tells me all about how he "rules with an iron fist" and that he may have people that yell at him, but at the end of his day he's "king of his castle". I disagreed and felt like he was probably more of a "captain of his pirate ship", but it was fun to joke about it. In celebration I drew him the following pictures:
The pirate one is my favorite, mainly because of the bird :D I realize that this post probably doesn't make sense to a lot of people, but I think that DB will get a kick out of it (I emailed him the pictures).
In other news, my dog was not particularly fond of the snow that I left at my parent's house. However, he does look pretty dang adorable in his little sweater in the snow.
