Here we are at the beginning of the new year!

No bullshit about how I am going to do this or that, I just dissapoint when I do that!

This year Chris and I are looking forward to continue to try for a family, and just generally enjoying our life if that does not happen for us.   We hope to spend lots of quality time with friends and family and we pray that this year will find us in good paying, fulfilling jobs!

Speaking of jobs, I am still looking and I hope that if you hear anything you will let me know.   I also ask that you pray for Chris and I while we struggle through this time.   My last severance cheque is on friday and I have two interviews this week.   I have a handful of outstanding applications out as well.   We are trying not to be worried.   We have saved as much as we could and hope that will carry us through.  

I can apply for EI on Friday, but that will mean 2 weeks waiting period and that waiting for the first cheque to come.   The cheque will not be anything close to what I was making before and we are in a lease.

We are very very optimistic about this new year and we hope that you are too!   Our sincere prayer is that you find true joy, real love, complete health, the wealth you need and the wisdom to see it all.

I am going to try and do the 365 photo challenge this year and then do a year book with those photos.  Here is my first photo!  

I chose this photo as my first one because this is one of the best places in the world.   We love to sit out on our patio and enjoy the view while we hang out together.   We spent a number of lovely nights out there eating amazing food in the summer and Chris has taken to taking photos off the balcony most nights.

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…
