  • 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! [...]

  • 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. [...]

  • My cat, the elastic thief

    I thought this was too cute not to share. My cat the elastic thief. I am careful about keeping elastics hidden because he will steal anything not nailed down. However I failed to take into consideration his determination and apparently how smart he is too!

    Since not much has gone on in the last 10 days I have not bothered to post, figured it was about time. We are getting a snow storm (go figure) again this weekend with up to 50 more cm’s of snow. However the last few days have been really warm (well above 0°C anyways) and some of the snow is melting, still lots there and more to come but we had a few days of spring like weather, more to tease us then anything I am sure.

    I have been doing good at work and have had a whole month without a cold or getting sick somehow and work is starting to slow down some and the work is starting to make more sense to me. I had a few weeks of feeling so lost and not understanding what I was doing that I just wanted to quit but believe it or not a 30 minute chat with a colleague helped immensely and I am understanding more and catching on more.
