I am allowed to apply for work...and I have. However, it seems like wherever I apply there is the dreaded check yes or no box that asks "are you legally entitled to work in Canada", and there is not a "no, but let me explain" box to check. Its frustrating.
Its not that I don't enjoy staying home with Liv. I do...its quite the blessing. I can admit that much. But, I am in a new place with no friends of my own. How do I meet people? I feel like I'm not an outgoing enough person to make friends at a play group or somewhere like that. I just can't picture it happening...not saying I'm not willing to.
So I have a few goals set for myself.
First: Start using my gym membership more regularly. Which I have started...and I'm feeling the effort.
Second: Find a class/play area for Liv and I to attend together. I took her swimming yesterday!
Third: Re-style 2 old dresses. I have one dress that I bought for $6 on a target clearance rack and another I got from Dani...I found them and decided I could really make them into something. I need to use my sewing machine and this is a great way to get going.
Fourth: I'd like for Pat and I to start a date night. It would be nice to do something as a couple on a regular basis.
Fifth: Keep up with laundry....there's 3 of us and I feel like I constantly have 2 loads in the basket.
So there it is, It may not sound like much...but for me, it will definitley make the weekdays fly by a quick faster than what they are at the moment.
