I made a new word. Neglection. I realize it isn’t a word and probably makes you writer folks cringe, but I like the sound and the way it rolls of the tongue. I have been neglecting the blog a wee bit. I am just SO frigging tired I don’t have the energy to write when Aaron is in bed or napping. My summer cold is kicking me in the ass. I think I may have to go on antibiotics to kick it, which I really don’t want to but the damn thing won’t give.

Eight sleeps. This is how many nights until Eric leaves for two-and-a-half months. It will be the longest we’ll have been apart since we started dating. It’s a precursor to his six month deployment that will be happening next year. To kill time I will be will be high tailing it over to my dad’s with Aaron and the cat in toe as per the norm for us.

I foresee a lot change in the fall. I will be seriously looking for a job, and not being so selective and/or going to school. I plan to enroll in a math course as a prerequisite to nursing. Being enrolled in course as opposed to doing it online is probably going to better so I don’t have to motivate myself. I am having a bit of a hard time seeing the “bigger picture” and need to short term attainable goals, meet these goals and move on.

Eric pointed out the realistically that I have been out of the “real” working world for 2.5 years that I might be setting the bar a little high in my wage expectations and may need to kick it down a notch to build up my resume which will lead to better work.

I don’t want to apply for jobs in the coming weeks as I have a list of things I want to do with Aaron while in Vancouver. We will be going camping for the first time with my sister, my youngest niece and seven year old nephew. The older kids are away at camp.

I also plan on taking Aaron to the PNE, Vancouver Aquarium,(where we get a nice military discount) to the pool at Kits beach, Granville Island where we’ll ride a little ferry in False Creek, Dinotown and maybe we’ll even make it some waterslides. It will be busy, but I am looking forward it.

I also might have something on the go to which I had thought the door was closed but the door is slightly ajar.

This tired gal is off to bed. I’ve had a long day. I went to Vancouver and back all in a day to deliver a dress and a camera to my friend who leaves for Europe tomorrow. I managed to get lunch in with the girls, and to writing a draft copy of a letter to my MIL. All whilst on a bus and ferry.

Sometimes you have to neglect the blog in order to have a life to blog about.

Good luck on the job search.
