I didn't make it around these parts yesterday, I meant to but the day kind of got away from me! Thursday I gave in and called the Dentist to make appointments and they told me they would put us on the cancellation list because at this time they were only taking appointments for October (CRAZY!) So I agreed hoping it would be at least a week or two as I had just read the horrible tail of Jaclyn's bloody (literally, bloody) trip to the dentist that day! Well, no such luck on that front as she called me back a half hour later and said they could get Jason in at 7:00am and me at 10:00am! Great... I absolutely HATE the dentist and as soon as I knew we were going the next day I was extremely anxious! I have ZERO pain tolerance and I wince and whine the entire time I'm there.
So yesterday morning Jason got up and headed to the dentist, he picked me up after his appointment and I took him to work so I could have the truck to go to my appointment. Unfortunately there is pretty extreme road construction going on in Estevan and on the way to take Jason to work he told me the road that I knew how to take to get there was closed... ugh! I honestly I'm sure I have mentioned this before but I have the WORST sense of direction EVER! I get lost all the time and generally don't venture too far out of my comfort zone because I would never find my way back. If I know how to get some where, but there is a way I could take that would get me there a lot faster I would never try, I will always take my long way because that's what I know... ridiculous I know!
I made it to the dentist, although I went right from Jason's work because on the way he showed me how to drive that way and I didn't want to forget and I still feared getting lost so I wanted to give myself plenty of time in case that happened.
The dentist was tolerable, the girl cleaning my teeth was super nice and the fact that we chatted throughout gave me something else to concentrate other than pain and the taste of blood.. did I mention I hate the dentist? They took 18 x-rays which seemed excessive and their technology was a little outdated so it was kind of uncomfortable but I made it through it. The cleaning itself goes about how it always does, I was quite thankful when it was over! When I left the dentist I went out a different driveway of the building then I went in and took a wrong turn (which I immediately realized) and had to turn around.. you see I wasn't exaggerating though.. one change in scenery or direction and I'm totally screwed!
The afternoon went by quickly and I had to pick Jason up at work because I had the truck, I didn't mind because I never have the truck and I miss driving sometimes, and it was a cold but beautiful day! Here is a picture of Jason's work and its surroundings!
Believe it or not in the mornings these fields are full of cows! Unfortunately when I went to pick him up they weren't out or I would have snapped some pictures of them. I know it sounds funny but I absolutely LOVE cows.. I don't know what it is. I especially love baby cows, I get so excited when we drive to see a field full of mama cows and their babies.. they just seem so peaceful and content!
Last night Jason and I went to the movies, when I was on my way to the dentist yesterday I noticed that they were playing Grown Ups 2 and Jason has been dying to see that movie. He is a huge fan of Adam Sandler and absolutely loved the first movie! I was a little hesitant to see that movie because when we were home my little cousin Brittney and her friend Sophie went and saw it and proceeded to tell us the ENTIRE movie when they got home, haha and truthfully I didn't think it sounded nearly as funny. We went anyways and I wont lie it wasn't all that funny. You know those movies that have parts that are so stupid and unrealistic it just isn't funny? Well that was this movie, some parts were just so ridiculous I just couldn't get into it, but none the less I am always happy to have a night out with my hubby!
When we got home last night and got out of the truck all I could smell was a camp fire.. I love that smell, it was such a great way to end the night!
I love the smell of campfires and fresh cut grass.... I love the sound of baby laughter and a Harley Davidson.. haha!
So before I sign off I will share my super exciting news.. I don't talk a lot of our immigration stuff on here because its pretty personal. But if you are new around here or havent made the connection Jason is American and I am Canadian. We met while working on the same job in Toronto (where I am from) and it kind of progressed from there. Since deciding to get married immigration has dictated much of our lives. After we got married I received my two year green card which expired in March, two months prior to that we had to apply for a removal of conditions and if approved I would receive my 10 year green card. I have always had a really hard time dealing with immigration, we have never had any problems but in the back of my head there was always the thought that someone else could take away my happiness, someone else had a say over what my future would be and that is terrifying. We sent in our last round of paperwork in January, I had my bio-metrics in March and we waited. We waited to hear if they would request more information, if they would want to have an interview with us or if my green card would come.. and today.. my green card came! I got out of the shower and there was an email from Jason that our lawyer had sent the confirmation papers from Homeland security. I sat on the edge of the bed and sobbed.. happy tears of course! This is such a relief, I feel like I have absolutely nothing in the world to worry about! Jason and I are starting a whole new chapter in our lives with our home and I just feel like everything is falling into place in the best way possible.
I am so grateful for all I have in my life, for all the so many blessings!
So on Tuesday we find out a definite closing date on the house, we were set to close for sure on August 30th but there was a few hiccups (windows were delivered in the wrong size, etc) and therefore we thought the date might be pushed. We will find out for sure on Tuesday and then start getting house insurance, etc in the works. I am so excited.
Here is a picture we got from the builder today, I'm not sure if you guys can tell the difference as most of the work being done is in the house but I see changes!
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I will be back around tomorrow with some of my favorite Pinterest finds for our new home!!
