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. READ MORE

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! READ MORE

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. READ MORE

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. READ MORE

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. READ MORE
