Having housing dreams of moving into one of these co-op townhouses
Bruyere, Lebretton, Loretta, Rochester, Ron Kolbus Place or Spadina. Any of those would do. Rochester isn't very nice, but the Ron Kolbus looks *gorgeous*. We'll only be able to actually view any of these apartments when our name is called up on the list. The person in charge of the housing says that the list goes pretty fast; there are a lot of properties. I really am hoping we can move in 2011... but we shall see.
We'd need to buy our own fridge, stove, washer, dryer, but really, you can get those for fair prices. I'm faxing the application on Monday.
Slightly dreading the 6 hours (total) of driving back and forth to Peterborough for a shower lunch at the Olde Stone Brew Pub with all my Ottawa family and who knows (Kayren does) how many of my PTBO family. There's going to be family there that I didn't invite to the wedding. My mom asked me the other night to give an invite to an aunt that I'm "supposedly closest to" who is genuinely going through a hard time; I wouldn't say no, but I could have used the heavy handed suggestion a month or two ago.
Although, you know what? Having 3 family members heavily suggested that I invite to the wedding has been the only action my mom has taken towards the wedding. She's going to pay half for the school bus & that is the end of her involvement. So, really not bad. Mason and I don't take well to other people trying to twist things the way they want them; we've been open to suggestion, but the vision for the wedding has always been there. Through months of finaly realizing that we can't just let people do whatever we've taken excruiating steps towards telling people what to do finally... which should have been done in the first place. It would have saved us a lot of pain. There's still small items that people are trying to be individual with, but they'll be worked out... and the wedding day will be what it will be. Awesome!
I ordered this necklace from etsy and had the lady use ivory pearls
and it was stolen from inside the apartment building (past the locked door). Mason found the opened package. So So So not cool. Isn't pretty though? That broach is just... anyways. I contacted CA Post, the matter has been escalated and I'm hoping to get my money back. Postman shouldn't have put the package on the stairs like that. It should have been returned and a notice put up saying I have a package. SO if I get my money back I'm going to order this beauty
Which will probably stab my neck, but isn't just gorgeous? I'd get it in ivory too.
OH I am *loving* my new job. I've already gotten notice from one of the partners I assist that I'm doing an excellent job and she let my admin manager know. All hail the big corp! Eff yes. Show up, do your work, stay forever, heh. I'm not used to having positive reinforcement at my jobs... Ottawa Magazine didn't treat me very well. My new company has good mat leave too I guess.
Mason and I want to add to our cat collection with one of these little beauties
Tonkinese kitty. We'd have to get him from a breeder, so likely a kitten... which I'm ok with. I don't want my cats dying all at the same time so a bit of an age gap will be ok. Shadow-Cat is just passed 7, Ace is probably 5. Kittens are bloody nuts (I've had Shadow since being a kitten and he's just a twisted little cat now).
I'm still on the path of not washing my hair, although I've decided to shampoo it once a week. I have it down more than I did before; it really does behave a lot more well. Still need to brush it more often though.
My hair at my wedding hair trial!!! It's kinda like celtic knots. It will go very well with my 50s-ish dress.
