  • More then a month!

    It’s been almost 40 days since our wedding and how does it feel? About the same lol  I’m not really sure if I expected it to feel different? I really don’t know. Eddie and I talked about it some over the last few days and have come to the conclusion that that’s a very good thing

    If anything I love him more and more and more every day so I know it’s the right decision for us. We are settling down and enjoying the married life but honestly day to day life doesn’t feel so different and I love it. I know that if you don’t live together first it must really seem different but we already knew what we wanted and had already established a pattern before getting married.

    I love being at home with him during the day and I love still having the weekends together. I wish I liked to clean more and was a better housekeeper lol but I can learn. Cooking too. I really need to concentrate on cooking and nutrition and getting my diabetes more under control. I need to take some cooking classes or something. [...]

  • Leave of Absence

    After a lot of stressing, talking, more stressing and more talking; Eddie and I have come to the conclusion that I need to take a Leave of Absence from work for the summer.  Three and a half months to be exact. Returning September 1st, 2016. It was not an easy decision to make and stressful in itself because we just bought a new car and our payments are more, where was I going to get money since there is no paid leave here?

    But thanks to my mother and my sister-in-law it is going to be possible. My mom contacted her boss and asked if I could take in some typing (transcription work) to do at home and my sister-in-law has asked me to babysit her kids part-time. Between the two I should make just enough and can do it from home for the summer and still have enough to pay my part of the bills. In September I’ll re-asses. I got a doctors note and yesterday was my last day till September. [...]

  • New car and wedding planning!

    So we bought a new car today! It’s not brand new but it is a 2015, a Nissan Alitma SV. It was a really good deal. It has 67,000 km on it but they extended the warranty free of charge so we had another 100,000 km which is what the original warranty for a new Nissan Altima would be.

    The pictures are not the greatest but they were just quick ones Eddie snapped with his phone. We will get some better ones this weekend hopefully. It’s a really nice car and so much bigger then the Fiesta!

    I can’t wait to take it to New Brunswick and maybe into the US with us next weekend. I hate putting that many miles on a car we just bought so fast but we are just going into Maine. It’ll all depend on if we can get the plates switched from the old car to the new one before next weekend. [...]

  • Wow, where has the time gone!

    I was looking at my site today and can’t believe it has been almost a year since I last blogged. So so much has gone on since then. For those of you who are not following me on Facebook or Instagram. I’m getting married! To a wonderful man named Edward Eddie for short.

    We have been living together since mid-October 2015 and been together since the beginning of June 2015. He asked me to marry him on Christmas day. It wasn’t really a surprise as I knew it was coming but I am so happy. I couldn’t be any happier.

    I am still working at the same place but I have moved to a permanent night shift working from 4pm to Midnight. I still enjoy it there. November 2016 will be 5 years! I don’t really miss days at all.

    So anyways back to the wedding. We are getting married on August 27, 2016. We have the venue booked, have the invitations mostly done up and we have the dresses picked out. My mom and I are making them. She is teaching me to sew. My best friend Erin is going to be my maid of honor and guess what she is pregnant so I am going to be an Auntie again as well! [...]

  • Moving day

    Yesterday was moving day. What a long day! I don’t know if it was anticipation or the fact I forgot to take my prescription however I did not sleep at all on Friday night.  I finally gave in around 6:30 yesterday morning, got up and got showered and headed to Halifax.

    I picked up Erin and we met my parents at the apartment, we did not finish packing and moving everything till 11 last night. I am beat. I didn’t sleep well last night either. I should have but I didn’t. Hopefully everything will get back to normal. I have my own bed back now.

    Today I went in to Walmart and spent about $120 on sheets, pillows, a few t-shirts and some food.  I am going to give my Aunt $150 every two weeks, since I did not pay rent before this will give me time to get used to paying about $300 a month so that we I move into an apartment here shortly then I will not have to worry. I will just be changing who I am paying. [...]

  • Getting settled in

    I am really excited for the summer. I am looking forward to saving up some money while living with Aunt Ferne and the kids and then moving into my own apartment in August or September.

    Right now the plan is to save up the damage deposit and a months rent. I mentioned that my brother is planning on coming up. He’s going to come up the end of July or whenever his course is finished and start looking for a job.

    I am excited that he is moving in with me. It’s my turn to take care of him. My parents have been doing it for his whole life (24 years) and it’s time for me to take over and help. I think he will do good up here.

    In the meantime I am getting settled into my Aunts. It’s a little awkward since I am used to taking care of myself and not worrying about anyone else. Good practice for my brother actually. I am hoping that however long he lives with me I can help him take control of his own life and stop acting like a child. [...]
