i just want my sweet boy to be okay

So I got fired for no reason, literally none. They can't give me a reason, they just did it. And now my cat is very sick and at the vets. Costing me a shit ton of money. I have to do it. He's part of my family and I will pay whatever to get him healthy and home. My brother in-law Dan brought me wine....he is incredibly thoughtful and I was so surprised and thankful for the thought. The vet seems very positive but I'm still an emotional wreck. I'll update more later.

Fer (that's french for iron)

I've always been moody, our family seems to breed moody women. Like super moody. For the last 2 years I've been in a bad mood at least once a day.

The other day Will finally had a mini freak-out about it and informed me he couldn't handle my moods anymore. So we had a long long talk about it and kind of resolved it. Went back to work the next day and hear that iron actually effects your moods. And because I'm vegetarian I know I am low on iron, which maybe is effecting my moods. huh.

So I informed Will and we immediately went to Shoppers and bought some iron and started taking it right away. I started taking my multi-vit again as well, and vit-c because apparently it helps the iron get absorbed faster.

Well it's been 4 days and I've never felt so good. Not one single bad mood or grump. It's probably a combination of getting a new job I like, the pills and finally talking to Will about it. But whatever it is, I finally feel good.

I told Will that I knew when I was being a bitch but I couldn't stop myself. I guess it was a mixture of lots of shit in my life at that time. Getting laid off seems to be more and more exactly what I needed. Financially, mentally and for my relationship.

I'm happy and excited for the future. I'll be moving from the training clinic to my own clinic in the next couple of weeks. And we're going to look at townhouses in Barrhaven, which is a huge upgrade from this dump of a 'hood we live in now. I'm excited for the future!

s dub

I only got the chance to start the grieving process for Sun Media. But instead of that I got a new job and bought a 50 inch plasma HDTV.

Thanks for the severance, Sun Media. You had to close, and me and my giant T.V accept that.

Sometimes decisions you make do not make everyone happy, and some of your decisions are silly and hurtful, but me, my giant T.V and higher paying job accept your apology.

Although my giant TV was kind of an asshole for a bit. I had to remove the seats from my car to get it home, and putting together the TV stand was goddamn annoying. It's worth it though. And tonight Will and I are going to get a high def box so we can fully enjoy our new tv. I can't wait to watch Big Brother in HD, my god Rachael is gonna look so gross, lol. Then we can watch HD TV and have our taco night!

We moved our downstairs TV to our room and I offered our smaller TV to Holly for free, cause I know she wants a TV for their bedroom. I called and texted her about it but she's not answering right now. I don't know if she's not getting my texts and calls or if she's ignoring me. Either way, the TV is going in the garbage next week.

So today is my last of 2 days of unemployment. I guess I'll do some laundry and clean the house up, there isn't much else for me to do. Although I sound like I'm bragging I do know how incredibly lucky I am to have found a new job the day after getting laid off. I would have quit Sun Media Friday anyway, so this lay-off happened at the perfect time. And I do wish everyone there the best of luck finding a better job, where your respected and not lied to.

bad then good

I still don't have a new computer so I'm quickly using Wills when I can.

So Coles notes of my life:

11am Thursday - get laid off, the whole call centre is closed, I am out of a job.
1pm Thurdsday - job interview.
2pm Friday - get new job.

And I still get my severance so we're gonna buy a new tv and a dining room set! Awesome. I start my new job on Tuesday! Wish me luck!

Are you stressed yet?

So when do I start getting stressed about this wedding thing? Cause I'm not. And people keep asking me if I am, like I'm supposed to be sweating and power drinking due to all the stress. We still have MORE then a year, and I realize this year will probably fly by but I'm still not stressed yet. I have a lot of time left to worry about things.

Right now I'm just enjoying being engaged and occasionally buying something wedding related when we get a 40% off coupon for Michael's. We have random adorable napkins and our invitations already.

We have our guest list ready, and almost all the addresses (getting addresses out of Will's family seems harder then it should be.) We picked colours, theme, location (just have to make the down-payment), we have an idea for the DJ and photographer, honeymoon location picked, wedding parties asked and confirmed, and the date picked. Just got to put it all into motion.

I realize its going to get stressful at some point, I just don't get why everyone thinks that has to be now. I just want to enjoy the engagement before I start being a bitch about wedding planning, har har har, nice joke, eh. I'm always a bitch.

Please fire me.

I'm useless today. I did so little at work, which was a feat considering I have zero motivation today. I sucked at work. I did. I should be fired for that massacre of an 8 hour shift I just completed. Fingers crossed no one noticed, cause I wont be surprised if that was my final hurrah. I'm literally going to have to make Will propel my legs to actually go for a run tonight...

Not feelin' it

I've been working out a lot but I'm not seeing or feeling any changes. It's ridiculously frustrating. I need a glass of wine, but this doesn't mean I'm giving up. It means I worked out 4 days already this week and I deserve a motherfucking glass or 3 of wine. And I'm gonna freaking enjoy it.

So my life is so pathetic this is what has been plaguing me the last few days. How much cheese is 30g (1 oz)? My cheese is 120 calories for 30 grams, I assume each slice is a gram, but Will insists my slices are so thin that 4 or 5 slices would be 30 grams. Goddamn, I'm confused. I was informed it's the size of 4 cubes the size of dice...but I don't eat my cheese in cubes, I eat them in slices. The trial and tribulations of a cheese addict on a diet...

I'm very pleased its a long weekend, I feel like I need it. There are some very good things happening for us in the next few months. Something good (fingers crossed) for me this week, and something good (fingers crossed) for us by December. More news on that as it develops...but it's exciting, I assure you.

And I finally found a picture of how I'm gonna get my nails done for the wedding. Crazily enough, it was Will who found this design and suggested it. I just love it, so cool and funky...and non-traditional!

Busy Day

Happy Birthday to my awesome and beautiful sister Holly!

And Happy Anniversary to my loving and always understanding parents!

I love you all!
