Back in my home town.

Like I posted a few weeks ago I am pregnant. I spent 7.5 hours in the hospital on Saturday just to make sure I was ok. Saturday morning I woke up with spotting, it continued throughout the day, so in the afternoon my mom took to the hospital to be safe. It didn't help that I had mild cramps too. I'd normally get my period at the beginning of the month. So at the hospital they took blood, did a ultrasound, and took more blood. My results were I had to infections, the baby was fine and the doc could see the heartbeat, I also found out that I'm O+ blood type.

I start my new job on the 15th of July. I'm very excited about it. It's been 5 years since I worked, but I know it's a part of my new life now. I currently live with my mom, so she can dog sit for me while I'm at work. Having a job will help me save for when baby gets here. I also want to save for a vehicle for me while I'm here.

I go for my prenatal blood work on Thursday. I was suppose to be tomorrow but that's all the way up in Kitchener. My old family doctor from 10 years ago took me back as a patient once she found out I was pregnant. Now it's closer, the doctors office is in Kingston. So I'm excited and nervous about that first appointment. I'm 8.5 weeks pregnant.

Well I guess that's all for now.

Absent again, I know I'm horrible

Well I have some news to share even though I shouldn't yet, but I can't keep it to myself. Two weeks ago today I had a positive pregnancy. I went to the clinic and they confirmed that yes I am indeed pregnant. I'm not positive on how far along I am but I'm at least 6 weeks today it may even be 10 weeks. I have to call and book my first prenatal visit the first week of July.

Just wanted to share.

Pretty close to a year . . .

Hi Everybody,
It's been pretty close to a year since I actually posted here. It's a overcast sky day today, they are calling for thunderstorms again here today. It's heart breaking to hear and see the damage left by the tornado that struck Moore, OK. It's scary knowing that when on the road Hubby and I go threw there quite often. We have been on the outskirts of tornadoes before and that was bad enough. We have also been on the out skirts of hurricanes before. It's magnificent the power that mother nature has. There is no rhyme or reason to what gets demolished and what is left standing. My heart goes out to everyone in Oklahoma that has to start over and that is grieving the loss of loved ones.

On a more positive note Hubby and I have been enjoying so time off work. We went to the drive-in on Sunday night. It was a long weekend so they had an all nighter. The movies started at 9pm and ended about 5:30am. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to going again. We watching Star Trek: Into the Darkness, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Hansel and Gretal: Witch Hunters. I enjoyed 3 out of 4 movies. The best part of Pain & Gain was the Rock and Marky Mark. I'm waiting to see what's playing there this weekend. Hoping the list goes up tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Procrastination at its best

I lost this last week to the procrastination bug. You would think I'd accomplish so much more being at home but it doesn't usually work out that way yet.

On Monday we delivered our load from Colorado into London,ON. From there we went back to the yard empty. It was 41°C with the Humidex which ment that it was too hot for the dogs to be in the pickup while we went out for lunch. With Molly not feeling well and her being heat, she would have had to in the box or cab by herself and Axle in the opposite. We decided to go home and relax. That night we took Moo and monster to meet with her friend. They are spending 2 weeks at their friends place visiting. I must say it's been strange without them around and I miss them.

My goals for this last week were to walk at least 3 miles and make it to the library. I did not accomplish either goal. We were home until Saturday but the temperature stayed in the 40's all week. So all I did all week was veg out and watch TV while on the computer. My goals for this week is pretty much the same. 1) walk 3 miles, 2) drink at least 2L of water a day 3) if we are home make it to the library.

Yesterday we went to Guelph,ON to load auto parts to take to Marysville,MI. It should have been an easy load, deliver the auto parts and reload watermelons 2 miles down the road in the same town and bring that load back to Kitchener,ON. Well not with our luck. Our load in Guelph was suppose to be ready when we got there but of course out wasn't. We ended up waiting close to 2 hours before we were loaded. From there we had to go back to the yard to get our paperwork, then straight to Sarnia,ON. At customs we had to get x-rayed, which took over an hour. The delivery was about 15 miles away and we got there just after 5. They unloaded us and we made our way back the 2 to the pickup but they had already gone home for the day. So we stayed at the truckstop across the street. It was kinda nice though because we watched movies and the dude waiting beside us was actually waiting to delivery there in the morning, he cut up a watermelon and gave me 1/2. I ate it ask to myself.

So today our day started out in Marysville,MI. We got loaded with watermelons, delivered them into Kitchener, went back to the yard to drop off paperwork, got our new paperwork and headed for border. We went to Emporium,PA empty to get a load of auto parts to take to Guelph,ON. We are now making our way to deliver, we are about 3 hours away. From Guelph we should just be going back to the yard.

Well I think that's all for now. I'm going try to accomplish all my goals this week. Until next time . . .

Where does the time go?

I can't believe its been over a week since my last post. Of course this week has been a week of procrastination. I started this blog post 3 other times. I guess the forth time is the charm.

Monday we just done a small run over to New York then drove over 2
hours to the reload for them to tell us they had no loads going to Canada. Finally after 3 hours waiting they came up with a load for us. We delivered into Guelph,ON then brought the empty back to the yard. We switched trailers and headed for Centennial,CO.

We spent Tuesday night at the Iowa 80 truckstop in Walcott,IA. Its the worlds largest truckstop. They have a big truck show there next month called the Walcott Truckers Jamboree. We have yet to go but we'd like to check it out.

We got into Denver Thursday and delivered Friday morning. Where we delivered there was a Walmart right next door so I picked up a few things. We picked up a load of bricks in Castle Rock, CO and deliver them Monday morning in London,ON.

Ms. Molly isn't feeling well, but she seems to be doing a bit better today. I'm trying to stay positive and not stress out but it's extremely difficult with how we lost Annastasia. But the good news is that Molly still eats, drinks and pees.

The first two pics were taken at the truckstop in Walcott. The next two were taken when we were in Castle Rock. The pic of the gruesome sky I took about 5 mins before getting an alert for severe thunderstorms in the area. The next 2 are of Molly and Axle. He had the chair first but she didn't care, she sat on him for a few mins before curling up with him.
Well that's this blog post. Thanks for stopping by. Until next time...

A Fresh Start

It's been a long time in the making but I'm finally back on track. It's time to make a fresh start.

In February our dog Anastasia passed away in my arms after fighting for over a week to get better. It hit my husband and I really hard. Three weeks later we resqued an abandoned dog in Houston. I would have loved to have kept him but because he was a intact male Axle viewed him as a threat and after having him for a month Axle starting fighting with the little guy. So we took the new guy to the Humane Society where he has been adopted by a new family. I'm happy he has found a good home but I miss the little guy. I really got attached to him.

Randy and I had planned to get married in July but decided in May that we'd just elope instead. So on May 7th we did, we had a small ceremony with 3 witnesses and the grand baby. I figure maybe on our anniversary we can have a party to celebrate.

On June 1st I celebrated my 29th birthday. Randy got me another dog. We adopted her because she reminds us of Oxie and Annie. They figure she is 5 months old. She is fitting into our family nicely and we are seeing an improvement in Axle. The loss of his sister hit him hard too.

Another one of my gifts was getting the new Android phone for using in the States. Which is how I'm blogging right now. With being able to get all the apps again I'm wondering why I even switched to a Blackberry in Canada.

On a side note after seeing the pics we got done for our wedding I am disgusted with myself. Enough is enough already, I'm sick of how I look and feel. I'm 5 feet tall my body is not ment to carry around 200+ pounds. I have decided to get healthy and lose weight. I downloaded some apps to help me and I always have my good friend @sweetmarie83 to encourage me and keep me motivated.

Thanks for stopping by and getting somewhat caught up. I promise with the new phone and the blogger app I'll be blogging a lot more often. Bare with me while my touch screen typing improves as does my app blogging.

Back again.

Where does the time go. Four months have pasted since I last posted to my blog, I do apologize. Life got pretty hectic there for a while.

 Right now we are in a motel room in Strafford, Missouri. The air conditioner in the semi crapped out and wince we had to wait until today for our load, the boss said to grab a room. Finally I was able to get online on my Blackberry's wifi.

I still don't have my laptop fixed and am hoping to get a new laptop for Christmas. I promise to blog more often and fill you in on what has happened over the last 4 months. I apologize for the lack of editing but I'm unable to do anything but type, bare with me. I hope everyone is doing good.

A - Z Blog Challenge: Q is for . . .

For today's entry in the a - z blog challenge I'm going to write about something I would like to learn.  I would like to learn how to quilt.

For Christmas I received my first sewing machine but I have yet to use it. I have made a tote bag before with the help of my dad on his machine when I was quite young. I quite often find fabric I like when I get the chance to shop in the States. Most Wal*mart Supercenters have craft departments that sell fabric. They have had some really nice fabric and a lot of it goes on clearance as the holidays and seasons change.
I have been interested in learning to quilt for over a year now. Every few months I pick up a new quilting magazine to see what beginner patterns they have. I have found quite a few that interest me.
Now its just a matter of buying all the supplies and breaking out the sewing machine. I have lots I still need to purchase in fact all I have is the sewing machine. I love crafting so getting new items is always fun for me.

A - Z Blog Challenge: P is for . . .

I could easily write about being a procrastinator for today's p entry in the a - z blog challenge but i think that by now its very evident that yes i am a procrastinator. Instead I have decided to write about being a pack rat and potlucks.

Pack Rat
Yes, I am a pack rat and my boyfriend tells me this at least once a day. I tend to save everything that I think I can use at a later date. I also tend to keep a lot of useless crap. I have paperwork that there is no sense keeping. I have broken things because I can make them into something. I have been slowly starting to go threw my things and throw away all the useless junk and organize whats left. I'm sick of all the clutter. So I have 3 Rubbermaid totes that I've been using to help organize myself. One is marked garbage, one is marked keep and one is marked donated. The garbage one fills up very fast, the keep pile is rather small and the donate pile is starting to become a decent size. So hopefully I can keep myself motivated enough to get rid of all the junk.

This is another one of the many fond memories of have from spending so much time with my grandparents. Camping was always at the same trailer park and we always had the same spot for as long as I can remember. The trailer was even in the same spot when my grampy sold the trailer when he was really sick. Every weekend when my nanny was alive our whole row of trailers would have a potluck supper. There was 11 trailers in our area and everyone brought a different item. We set up all 11 picnic tables in a row between the trailers. It was always so much fun to see what everyone brought. There was always so much food. I really enjoyed helping out Nanny with whatever I could. Most of the time on the very hot days she just sent me away to play since being in the camper cooking was hot enough on is own let alone having a youngster around. I wish potlucks were more popular now. I think they are great.

A - Z Blog Challenge: O is for . . .

I've made it all the way to the O posting. For today's entry I have decided to write about 3 topics. One is something I haven't done and the other two are something I am.

I am extremely obese according to my BMI. I am 5 feet tall and at the beginning of this month I weighed 192. My weight is slowly coming down but I'm still have a lot of work ahead of me. I'm not looking for the next quick fix even though it would be nice, I do realize that it took time to put the weight on so of course it wont come off over night. I have made some lifestyle changes to be healthier and in turn lower my BMI which will eventually make me not Obese. Its a long journey but I am here for the long haul.

I can become very obsessive in a very unhealthy way. I do not stalk or become obsessive with people. I become obsessive about thoughts, dreams and items. Right now I have 3 obsessions. 1-Trailers and the thought of living in a trailer full time. 2-Helping children and starting a Charity. 3-The Civil War. I tend to get fixated on things. I have spent countless hours lost in my own little obsessive world learning everything I can about my 3 current obsessions. With multiple google searches on the topics I learn what I can. I always have the best intentions but with being an obsessive procrastinator with a short attention span within 2 weeks I'll have new obsessions. In a few weeks or months certain past obsessions will return and I'll start the whole circle over again. My obsessions can include my crafts, watching TV or movies, listening to music, playing video games and even working out.

I have never swam in the ocean. I had been to Florida 13 times before my 10th birthday, but only remember swimming in pools. I have pictures of myself when I was three, chasing seagulls on the beach but swimming in the pool in the background. I almost had the opportunity while we were on a run in California. One of the rest areas has ocean swimming, but it just happens that at a certain time the military use the area for tests and training. Of course you can guess what time we were there. I have swam in the Gulf of Mexico though. I'm sure you'd think it was on one of the trips my grandparents took me on when I was younger but it actually happen while in the semi. We were delivery at load of kitchen cabinets to Orange, FL. We were so close to the Gulf that I left my boyfriend in the truck (sports were on) and I walked over to the beach. There was no one around everyone else had jackets and sweaters on. The must have thought it was too cold to go swimming yet there I am walking down the beach in my swimsuit and towel. I swam for about and hour and walked about and down the beach for about the same time. The water was a little wavy and by the time I got back to the semi to change I had sand in places I never knew existed. My boyfriend still has a good laugh about it today.
