Boy or Girl Result

Ultrasounds are incredible, despite all the other stuff that goes on with pregnancy and how enjoyable or in my case unenjoyable it can be getting to see that baby inside your belly is amazing.

So I ended up driving to town Tuesday night and stayed at my aunts with my dog, as my jeep had a flat tire so I wanted to be close to the garage in the morning. I was wide awake at 5:00 am anxious for 9:30 to come. But since the clock was ticking slow Aella and I got up and went for a walk. We chatted with my aunt for a bit and that got ready. Aella was going to doggy day care for the morning and I had my appointment. Before dropping her off I went to McDonald’s and got a breakfast sandwich, hash brown and a small coffee. We don’t have fast food up where I live and I don’t really like it much anyways but Egg McMuffins are my favourite, the hash brown was for the dog. Once we got done in the drive through we continued on out the highway to Markwin Pet Resort it’s in Farm Country but only 10 minutes away from my Dodge Jeep dealership. I pulled out my breakfast sandwich broke off a piece of hash brown for the dog and started in on my breakfast. Two bites and the heart burn hit me instantly, it was bad too. To the point that I didn’t know if I was choking, needed to burp or needed to throw up. I dropped the Egg McMuffin back in the bag and proceed to watch for the next exit to pull off the highway at. No such luck there’s one every 5 seconds except for when you need one! I put on my hazards and slowed down. I couldn’t pull over as the shoulders were too narrow. About 10 seconds later I quickly grabbed the McDonalds bag and throw up all over my breakfast and Aella’s hash brown. I don’t know about her, but I was no longer hungry. New rule: no more eating while driving.

Anyways you don’t care about that part, I hear Scribbles & Tostitos saying to me right now…. get on with it. 😉 I have no idea what her voice sounds like as she is a fellow blogger and a talented one at that but I still hear it.

Married Life, Money

Two Become One

“Come a little bit closer baby, get it on, get it on. ‘Cause tonight is the night when two become one”
And a couple dates later, a ring, a white dress and the words “I do” you now have joint income…..
When I got married there were so many changes all at once. The month before the wedding I gave up my two jobs, my friends, my apartment I still had separate from my fiancé’s house, and 90% of my belongings. Out of all those changes, one of the hardest things and that almost two years later I struggle with is financial independence and joint income.

Did you find this finical transition difficult for you?
