A little update and a new shop!

Well lots of changes in the Wasney household lately.  Both Chris and I are at new jobs and very very happy  to be enjoying work.   I am sure Chris will tell you all about his job, so I will leave that to him.   I am now at the Office of the Chief Judge, and really liking it.   I am hoping they trust me with more work soon as I could use it.

Girl guides is starting up into full swing now, it will be very wierd not to be going back to a unit, but I think I am going to enjoy the new job.

No baby news yet, but we are still practicing! :)

I had another shop today with Denise to get rid of some coupons that were going to expire.  I thought I would tell you about it.   I have been saving the money that people have given me for items they have purchased from our pantry/storage and today I went and did a shop and spent that money.   I wanted to know how much I could get for my 27 dollars.   Well I went to LD again and I had $219.75 in coupon savings!!! WOW!  I picked up a few groceries at no frills as well and saved another $13.00 in savings.  I ended up spending 8 dollars of my own spending money.

Here is a picture of my haul:

The picture is missing 2 tubes of sensodyne and a head and shoulders that I left over at Denise's house and 1 bottle of aveeno body wash that is already in the shower:

3 paks of cascade actions packs, 2 packs of pasta carbonara, kashi bars, 2 packs of pampers cruisers mega packs, 2 packs of newborn huggies, 2 jumbo packs of wipes (3 packs in each bag), 16 bars of irish spring soap, large bag of pasta, Aveeno baby gift pack (5 full size items), 2 lash blast mascara's, 2 packs of finish dish washing packs, 2 bounce dryer bars, always pantyliners, dove deoderant and body mist, 2 herbal essence shampoos, 1 dove hairspray, 2 tide stain release sprays, 3 dawn dish detergents, 2 dove shampoos, 1 dove intensive conditioner, 2 dove conditioners, 1 rubermaid refillable bottle, 1 package of royale toilet paper, 6 rolls of scott paper towels, 5 st. ives apricot scrubs, 20 pack of elastics, 4 large boxes of tampons, 2 large boxes of pantyliners, a free tshirt, a clothes dryer rack.

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us


 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…
