Sir Talksalot, my boyfriend's new boyfriend

Out with Cece and in with Sir Talksalot!
Sir Talksalot is CB's tour buddy I mentioned earlier, they've been together for 2 tours now and are really close. Overall he is a great guy and means well but I still have some major concerns about him.

First off he spent like almost his entire leave with us.... Not a fan. CB and I were really restricted.
Before I completely start bitching about him I should clarify that I do understand he didn't want to spend him time alone on base, especially since him and his common law wife split up on tour and she's seeing another soldier. BUT I should also add he isn't completely innocent as he was "courting" a female soldier while they were away and has another girl out here where I am. Needless to say he is a mess, I understand him not wanting to be alone, but I hate that he uses CB's place as room by the hour.

He hangs out all day waiting for her to come over after work, so we are left entertaining him or not entertaining ourselves..., then she shows up super late... we all fake small talk for a little till it's time for bed and then go our separate ways. By the time we are up in the morning she is long gone and we again are stuck with Sir Talksalot while he sits around and wastes time to see if she will be able to come over again that night or not.

The upside to Sir Talksalot is that he keeps CB company while I'm at work, the downside...he doesn't SHUT UP! CB loves it because he isn't a talker, I hate it because he talks in circles and changes his mind every 4 seconds. He will talk real estate all day if you let him and if you don't then he switches to the "poor me, I love my wife but I like my new playmate too". He's literally telling me how he wants to fly the common law wife to Hawaii to purpose and as soon as he finishes that sentence he starts telling me how amazing and how much he likes the new girl. And the whole time all I can think is "hmmm, I wonder how much damage a plastic fork would do if I stuck it in my own eye to get out of this converstation? Fuck, he'd probably just tag along in the ambulance."

The reason I'm annoyed about him at the moment is I just got off the phone with CB and it turns out the 2 men have decided they are both coming down together to stay at CB's for the whole weekend and all 4 of us will watch the fight this weekend together like a nice big double date. Yay...?? I told CB to please only have him come in on Sunday as I would like to spend at least SOME time alone with him.

My other issue with this whole thing is, there is a new tenant moving in on Sunday. CB and Sir Talksalot need to realize that 1) he wont have the spare room to pimp out anymore, 2) the new tenant is not going to enjoy waking up and seeing another couple on the sofa every weekend, and finally 3) I'm not crazy about Sir Talksalot! 

If I were the new tenant and I was told the living arrangements were suppose to be one way and all of a sudden you spring another couple on me, I'd bolt! And she can, she's only signing a month to month lease. I feel bad because I realize this will make it harder for Sir Talksalot and the girl but CB and I have enough things to worry about before I can start worrying about someone else's booty call.

The upside of the boys new found relationship is Sir Talksalot is teach CB a lot about repairs as they are both doing projects around Sir Talksalot's place. CB will be handy in no time lol.

What a sad sad day....

Cece is MOVING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't think I need to explain how excited I am! But my word was it hard to hide my excitement every time I saw a set of bags waiting to be carried out.

In true Cece nature the whole moving out process has been dragged out over a span of like 2 weeks. What would normally take a person 1 day to move some how has taken her 2 weeks. Whatever, she's still gone and I am as happy as could be. Unfortunately though she really is a piece of work and managed to piss CB off one last time before she left. As I've bitched about before, the girl doesn't pay for anything. CB simply asked her for 150$ to cover the last few bills, which is more than fair seeing as how really she owes WAY more than that. What did the lovely Cece respond? "Well it's not like you need my money, you make way more than can afford the bills." Okay so it's not a direct quote but that was the just of her response. WTF?
What difference does it make how much he makes? Did you not live here for 8 months? Did you not run up the rogers bill and not pay it? Did you not benefit in a million other ways from his kindness and get him to pay for things he didn't need to?
UGH so happy she is gone.

Well she pulled one last stunt that I have to blog about because it's simply hilarious. I guess she was the last one to buy toilet paper, CB and I didn't notice. We came home one night from stuffing our faces at a friend of the family and poor CB has to run to the washroom....To find no toilet paper.... ANYWHERE! She literally left like 4 squares in the entire house.

Well that's more than enough about her.

As for the rest of what's been going on....
I wrote my finals, waiting for the results. No summer school.... I'm already lost.
There is a new girl moving into the spare bedroom, we found her online and funny enough she knows one of the girls I work with very well so that's comforting. I'll post more about her later because the whole "interview a roommate from Kijiji" was something special lol.
I'm still waiting to be promoted at work but it looks like it's in the works.
CB is back at work and I am back at my moms house. Spent my first night alone last night, have I mentioned that I love my bed?
CB's tour buddy spent like the entire leave with us....I definitely have some bitching to do about him.
CB and I went to look at houses for fun, there was talk about our future.
Wow I really have a lot to write about....

Time flies

I know.... I suck at this lately! I realize I keep saying that and not changing but really there hasn't been much to blog about. Life has been simple and sweet and kinda boring.

CB has been home for just over a month at this point, he is going crazy with nothing to do in his days while I am at work. It's getting harder and harder to come up with things for him to do to keep him occupied, he's beaten countless video games.

His best time filler has been buying a second property, which he is currently at the bank signing the mortgage for. He has decided to become a real estate tycoon lol and has purchased his first rental property. I must say I'm pretty proud of him.

We sat with a financial advisor the other week, for 5 HOURS!!!!  I couldn't even see straight afterwards. She was really helpful. It's cute though because now CB is all worried about my debt and what not.

"Well honey, you know, one day your debt is going to become our debt, we really should get a head start on paying it down." Too cute, that's a HUGE step for CB. So he has offered to lend me 600$ to pay off my best buy credit card and I'd pay him back monthly instead.

Our anniversary is just a couple months away and I have no clue what to get him so I am coming to you ladies for ideas. What did you get your men for your last anniversary or their birthday??
