Things are looking up.

I just got off the phone with the local Timmy's. I have an interview tomorrow afternoon. :) I know that I'm excited over an interview at a coffee place but it's at least something. It pays minimum wage, which is over $10/hr now. I really hope that I get the job. It would REALLY help us out every month with the extra income I would be bringing in.

Life's stresses

Money just makes life so much more stressful than it needs to be. Honestly I think that money is the reason that I am so stressed out. Do we have enough for the bills? Food? Diapers? Gas? Sometimes it just gets to be so much that I'm not sure I can handle it.

I need to get a job. That is a definite. The husband doesn't pull in enough to cover all of our expenses and for us to put away money to save. We're living from paycheque to paycheque and it's hard sometimes. I honestly don't even think that we have enough to get the child a little something as an Easter present.

So getting a job is getting to be a bit of an issue. When we moved back to the Hometown, I applied to get my job back at the call centre. They don't want me back for some reason. I have no idea what I did wrong as to why they wouldn't want me back. As far as I know I was a good employee, had good stats and quality. I was talking to a friend that still works there and he's not too sure what the problem could be as well. Since he loves me <3, he's going to look into it for me. I have applied to other places. mostly things in my field, since I have a business diploma. I haven't heard back from anyone of them. The other day I had to finally drop my standards and apply at a Tim Horton's. Hopefully I get a call from SOMEONE for a job. It's not fun living like this.

And now to top it all off, I think that I'm getting carpal tunnel because my wrist is just KILLING me as I'm writing this post.

Update: The Week So Far

As my life is at it's pinnacle of dullness. I'll probably won't be able to update as much as I would like to.

Saturday night was pretty fun. The Ceili was cool. They were showing how to do some of the Irish dances. The Husband got up and danced with his aunt. We left before he got me to join the dancing. But didn't hesitate to mention that the next time that we do go (if there is a next time) I'm going to be dancing. I just hope that when that time comes, I won't make a complete and utter ass out of myself.

The first half of this week has been pretty uneventful. The weather has been gorgeous so I've been taking The Offspring out to play in the sun. As expected, she loves it. She has taken to throwing the rocks from the driveway into the mud puddles that are around. She also enjoys walking through the puddles. At least they're not too deep or there would have been more of a mess for me to clean up.

My evenings have been low key. I'm trying to get back into writing some fanfiction. I have several started, but I have never been able to finish a serial fiction beyond a couple of chapters. I have an idea that I think might be pretty good for an InuYasha fanfic - AU not canon - but I'm not too sure as to where I'm going to start. I guess I just need to sit down, start writing and see what comes out. I have an Escaflowne/InuYasha crossover fic in the works, maybe I should try and give that one a little more work... Hmmm

Tomorrow night we're going to a Caleigh. It's basically a Celtic dance for those who aren't too sure what it is. It's kind of formal, so I've been running aorund my room part of today trying to find something to wear. Too bad most of my nice clothes hadn't fit since I got pregnant two years ago.

I did throw something together. It looks okay, but I'm still going shopping with the MIL tonight to try and find soemthing else. Hopfeully It goes okay.

I'm actually kind of excited for this. I seems interesting. I've been told that there's going to be dancing and a meal. I have a cute dress picked out for the baby. It's a plaid dress so it kind of goes along with the Celtic theme.

This is going to be SO FUN

High School Drama and Other Things

Last night was a change from the normal monotony that usually consumes my life. I had two friends from high school come and visit. And to be honest it was an awesome night. We talked about what's going on in life, remembered high school, and gossiped a bit about those who we don't really hang out with that much.

My girlfriend had brought her son with her, and he was playing with my daughter. Theyr are a year apart so it was interesting to see them interacting. It kind of made me want another kid. LOL. At one point during the night, they were hugging! It was so cute. Too bad I forgot where I had put my camera, because I would have that picture as my desktop background.

During the night we got on the subject of the drama in our lives. Everyone has it. My girlfriend is separated from her husband right now, I have told her that I"ll be there for suppor if she needs it or wants to talk. Well someone found out and proceeded to write nasty messages to her via Facebook. They were the kind of thing that you would expect in high school. It was completely stupid. Last time I checked we were out of high school and in our fucking twenties. It seems that stupid shit like that cannot leave us. It's just so frustraing sometimes.

In other news, I really want FFXIII. Whether or not I get it is up to my husband. We're both gamers so it might be a possibility, but he doesn't like JRPGs like I do. He thinks that I should play some of the other games that he got me but don't really play. The problem with those games are that I"m not really into them. I've tried to play, but it just doesn't get to me. I've kind of adopted the same thing with games as when someone buys me a book: I have to choose what it is. I have gotten books from my MIL and my hisband that I have tried to read but cannot finish. Same with the games. I like choosing what I'm going to play.

Well, hopefully I get the game at some point... Or my husband renews my WoW subscription.

Cross your fingers!

Corey Haim - Dead at the age of 38

So, I haven't been much of a Corey Haim fan, and didn't really watch a lot of his movies and such. But it's always sad to hear that someone has passed and because he was in the public eye, it touches more people than I can imagine.

Even though the ahy day of his career was in the eighties (when I was born), he was still a famous person. But also, he had a family and friends that are going to miss him. Sure he struggled with substance abuse, which in the end killed him, he was still loved by those who called him family.

I always find it interesting when a celebrity passes, because it reminds me that everybody reaches the end of their life. Celebrities are no different - they may immortalized by their work, but their lives will eventually end.

I'm going to take this time to send out my condolences to the friends and family of Corey Haim.

The beginng of something new...

Good day internet people.

For all intensice purposed, my name is C.A. and I am a military wife. My husband is in the Canadian Forces. It's not an easy life by far and I have decided that I'm going to try and blog about my experiences and the things that we are going through.

I'm usually not much of a blogger, but I am hoping that I will be able to touch some people and let them know that others may be experiencing what they are.

With any luck, this is going to be the first of many posts.
