About Me

Alberta, Canada
What's My Deal? - - - There is so much to say, but I will give you the basics in regards to this blog. I am a Canadian 20 something woman married to a wonderful man, and we are the parents to our wondeful son who was born in the fall of 2010. As you will read, I am a supporter of breastfeeding, baby wearing, co-sleeping, cloth diapering, and so much more, but mostly learning about babies! Oh, and I also love reading blogs and playing jigsaw online!!! I blog to share things that I have learned, read, heard and experienced.

Another month bites the dust!

Well, it has been forever again since I last posted a blog entry. 
Things are continuing on as normal.  Alan and I are coping well with the changes life has brought us recently.  We are strong and excited people and look forward to our new life together!

On another note, we are busy starting to get ready for England.  We leave in a few days, and haven't yet done anything.  Well, this isn't true.  We have got the suitcases we have selected and thrown them on the bed in the spare room.  I was staring at them yesterday, but they weren't filling themselves, perhaps we chose the wring cases or something?
We do have out passports out though, our UK money, Rail Passes and a few other things.  I think that we have bought everything we need to buy, and have written down all the items we figure we will forget to pack. The trip is coming in days, I can't believe it.  We booked it so long ago, and haven't thought too much about it since.  The part I am really dreading is the 3 hour drive to Calgary and then of course the 7 hour flight on what I have read is not a comfortable airline.  I guess when you fly at a very low cost on a discounted charter airline, this can be expected.  Damn, maybe we should have spent the extra couple thousand dollars....ya right!!
I will also have to pack so much food, as I think we only get 1 meal, and I hear it is horrible.  Can I take a carry on bag full of food?  I have bought 2 new books for the trip though, I hope those 2 will last me, I have a feeling they won't.

The other thing I am dreading is not being with Bitey for so many days.  Whatever will he do without his Mum and Dad.  Will he think we have abandon him?  I hope he has a good time. He is friends with the other dog he is staying with, and has stayed with this family before, so I hope all goes well.  I just can't imagine no pup hugs and kisses for 10 days!!!  Omg, I am tearing up just thinking about it. 

Christine, Todd and Josh have come and gone.  That went well and no one was killed,  I think Todd was very surprised by this.  One thing I did realize yet again, is that Christine and I are SO different.  Our personalities are very different, yet all worked out okay.  I think we will also have very different parenting styles.  To each their own I guess.  They seemed to enjoy themselves, and the activities they participated in.  Mall, Waterpark, Zoo, etc.  I was very sick though.  It may have been food poisoning, but I am not sure, as it left this horrible wet sounding cough.  And everytime I cough I get this crazy pain in my back, and it is so annoying!

Hope you are all well, I will try to update again while I am in the UK!!!!
