finally over the stomach flu

So I think I am finally recovered the ultimate stomach flu. Anyways that's what I think it was. It was awful and I'm just starting to get my appetite back. I have hardly ate anything in the past 5 days. My body is catching up to it now i'm completely famished.

Tonight has been nice. No class, no work. Just good old relaxing. I am listening to a little bit of Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan trying to pick out possible wedding songs. And no i'm not engaged. I am like my friend Manda. I like to make lists. I'm obsessing I think actually. About my non-weddding wedding. It's childish and almost silly really. I'm sure it will pass soon.

My cat is trying to eat my printer. Oh dear.

it's a crazy time.

I've been getting a lot of random phone calls lately.
I have been getting phone calls from mortgage lenders, credit card companies, health care. I almost want to just not answer the phone lately.
I've been sleeping all afternoon. And most of these people have been calling me and waking it up! I guess they are just doing their job. Oh well.
I really hope I feel better by tomorrow but it's really hard to tell.

I have to do my ASL exam tomorrow. I haven't studied yet tonight. But I will hopefully feel better soon :(

motion sickness - every time i move.

So far this week has been HECTIC.

I went to a beautiful workshop at the Waldorf school in Blockhouse on Monday. It was so uplifting and wonderful. I really gained a lot of information and it was so wholesome and sweet. They have such a beautiful school. It's almost like a dream of mine to work there someday.

After the class my car decided to hate me. So Troy had to drive me back to the city.

I had my last class yesterday night. I am going to miss it but I'm at the same time glad that it's over so I'll have some time to myself.

Today I'm at work. And honestly I really shouldn't have come. I feel sick to my stomach. My co workers are upstairs enjoying the potluck and the smell of the food is making me nauseas. Oh well there will be more.

I have to stay though because Troy is coming by and I have to go with him to pick up some free furniture for work. I don't know what the evening will hold.

techno-geek

Troy loves anything electronic. Most people seem to be like that these days. I love electronics too but I find it so difficult to be up-to-date with them. I still don't really get the whole "mp3" player thing. One day for sure I'll fall into the craze. I always come across some interesting electronic stuff like these used cisco machines. I think Troy would love trying to figure something like that out.

oh the plans.

It's been a good weekend so far! I love the weekends even though they go by so quickly. I got all my laundry done and I had a chance to play some mandolin and study some sign language. My exam is next week so I'm trying to prep a little bit.

Tomorrow my co-workers are coming down a night early for our workshop that we have in Mahone Bay on Monday. It's going to be nice to hang out with them in a non-work related setting. It is going to be sad to not spend that extra time with Troy but I'll be able to make it up hopefully next week with the hopefully long weekend I am going to take. I still have to figure that all out.

I need to get my car all fixed up and inspected hopefully this week. Crazy times.

children's book

I'm always looking for lots of children's resources. I'd love to write a children's book. I've been given it a lot of thought over these past few months, and I'm sure I'll think of a really good idea to start one. I'm just waiting for the inspiration to come and for the ideas to flow!
I love finding new songs that the children love and new stories that are interactive. It's great to find those special ones that you can do over and over with them and that they still love! It's great :)

Another weekend bites the dust

My weekend was lovely to say the least.
Saturday I got a nasty sunburn while taking a little tour and adventure to Georger's Island. It was way too cool. This was an island that was fortified in war times to knock out enemies before they could reach too close to the harbour. It was really fascinating. I took lots of pictures. I'll post a few sometime this week.

I was able to visit with my friends Stephanie and Chrisitian for awhile yesterday- it was so great to see them. I miss them so much. I hardly ever get to see them now with summer and working schedules.

Troy stayed with me all weekend. It was so nice. We watched some movies, lounged, walked, went out to eat. It was just such a great time. I can't wait till next weekend already!

I'm going to look at a potential apartment tonight!!

too many choices!

I'm really trying to save money.
But...
haha there is always a "but". I hate it when you get an idea in your head and you can't get rid of it. I've been wanting to travel (as always) and I've got it stuck in my head that I need to buy luggage. Every time I go to the mall or any store I look at their luggage and think about all the things I could fill a suitcase up with. I try not too look online too too much. I've been really neglecting the internet lately - that's probably a good thing. I like some stuff at this Johnston and Murphy website - but there is just too much to choose from. Choices! Choices!

For a loved one.



This is the pendant that I painted for a girl in my American Sign Language (ASL) class. She lost a friend not too long ago and this friend's favourite colour was purple. She wanted a pendant painted "in memory" of this friend. That is why the flower is purple. I wanted to add a little baby flower in it as well to express the growth of the person through others. Does that makes sense?! :)

I have the morning off this morning! I went for a little jog now I am going to go the post office then buy some groceries! Ta ta!

oh so tired.

This new jogging kick is wearing me out. Once I get into shape though it'll go well - i'm sure!

I've been so awful lately. I've been planning my wedding.
A wedding in which I'm not even engaged for yet! It's so crazy because I am actually thinking concrete thoughts. Not thoughts like, "oh I would really like to have this, and that" thoughts like "I know I want a yurt, I have my invites picked out and everything". let's say it's going to be a very etsy wedding!

Our children are going to have awful complexions. Troy and I were dosed with TERRIBLE acne when we were in high school. Troy's all cleared up now because of his wonderful acne treatment. I wish I could say the same. Our poor children~

End of random - tired - weekend post.
Off to start my new novel!

Almost the weekend yet again!!

This week has been shorter. Here's a photo from LAST weekend:

But I'm so glad that the weekend is coming up. I've been so tired lately. I have had class after class and Troy came up last night so I had no time at all to clean or do anything. I went for a walk/jog when I got home last night and then I watched "So you think you can dance" then I cleaned a little bit. And now i'm writing in this. I'm really trying to find time to do everything. I'm going back to Bridgewater this weekend to spend time with Troy. It should be lovely.

ouu lala

Speaking of dieting! I just remember. I'm thinking about either taking a pilates class, investing in some fitness equipment or taking a dance class. I think I'm going to try and do this come July. I really want to take pilates but I'm not totally decided yet. I've been looking around on some website and it is pretty expensive for any of the choices but we'll have to wait and see!

Diet?

Today is my first day of my "diet". It sounds incrediably silly to even say that. I can't remember ever being on a diet before. I don't think I'm really doing the "Atkins diet" but I am reducing my carbs and mainly limiting my sugar intake to zip! That's right - no more ice cream, no more chocolate, no more sweets. It makes me so sad to even think about it. But I want to be more healthy so this is what I must do! I wish I had time or someone to walk with tonight. I have to leave for class in about five minutes. It doesn't give me much time to eat and sit for a minute. Oh well. Class will soon be over then I'll have the summer to look forward too.
Apartment hunting hates me.

wedding bells.

SO many people this weekend asked me about "when am I getting married!" I would sure like to know - no pressure Troy. Hahaha.

I haven't been to a wedding in years. I always love getting invited to them and I love going to them. The ones I have gone to in the past were weird relatives or acquanites that I didn't even really know all too well. I can't wait in a few years when some of my closest friends get married. I love buying gifts too. I love looking at bridesmaid gifts and wedding party gifts. I always try and think about stuff that I want to give.

I've decided that I want to rent a Yurt for my wedding too. I want mine very low maintence yet very "me" at the same time. I can start to plan even if I don't have a ring... right?

Mini vacation

I really need to post more!

It's June already and I have hardly written anything in May. Oh well. Time sure does fly. It was strange because April seemed to go on and on forever and ever but May just zipped right by.

I just got home from a mini-vacation to P.E.I (Prince Edward Island). It was wonderful and I was able to visit with a lot of realitives who I haven't seen a long time so it was very lovely. I'll post pictures soon!
