• Trying To Conceive
  • Let the TTC begin!

    Eddie and I have been trying a few months now to conceive and so far nothing much has happened. I am 35 going on 36 and with the medical issues I’ve had I am a little concerned about conceiving in general. About 2 months ago I came off of Lyrica, Naproxen and even Reactine. I have been taking a pre-natal multivitamin since then as well as a supplement called Vitex which is supposed to regulate everything and help with conceiving.

    I am so happy that Eddie and I are on the same page with this and he is willing to do whatever it takes for us to have kids. We have decided we want to consider adoption as well. We have called the adoption hotline for Nova Scotia and have been invited to an orientation session. We can not make this one due to our schedules but we are hoping to make the next one in May in our area. [...]

  • Wedding
  • Our first trip to the US together

    The last weekend in April my parents and Eddie and I are taking a trip into Maine to Bangor to hopefully buy material for the wedding. We will be staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage in New Brunswick for 4 nights and will be making at least one day trip into the US.

    Eddie and I are so excited. It is his first trip to the US. We went and got a passport for him the other day specifically for this trip. He’ll need it anyways for our honey moon. It’s soon going to be time to start planning the trip.

    We are planning for the weekend to go to Jo-Ann Fabric in Bangor. We have the pattern’s already for the wedding dress and for the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. I can’t wait to get started on them.

    The wedding dress is just a regular dress pattern. But we are going to turn it into a wedding dress using charmeuse and lace. I can’t wait to get started on it. Mom and I are going to sew it together. We are making all the dresses. We are also doing the food ourselves, cold platters and we are doing all the decorations ourselves. [...]

  • 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. [...]
