a long update.

I don't want to jinx myself, buuut I have a second interview tomorrow!! This would be the second, second interview I've had. However, I didn't follow through with the first one because the hours were 1pm-9pm monday through friday and I am not willing to give up putting Liv to bed every night. This job is something I wouldn't have ever saw myself doing, but seriously, posing "I need a job" as your status on facebook opens up a lot of opportunities (who knew??!) and I realized I know more people in Calgary than I thought I did. So wish me luck on that!

Also, last weekend I threw Pat a 30th Surprise Birthday party! I obviously didn't write about it because I didn't want him to find out. I can confidently say he had no idea, it was so much fun, and it felt great to surprise Pat...he's not an easy person to surprise. I was a weasel and called Pat's friend to take him golfing for the day of the party. However, Pat was being difficult and wasn't sure if he wanted to what did I do? I nagged him and nagged him. He kept saying "I don't know why you care if I go golfing or not?"...bahaha. So, his group of friends got him to the pub where I was throwing the party and the rest is history. There was great friends, food, lots of drinks, decorations, and sticky moustaches for everyone! It was truly a blast and something I know Pat won't soon forget.

Speaking of Pat, he's out of town. He left last Friday and he'll be home Wednesday. This is the first time that Pat has been gone, and keep in mind he used to work out of town for months at a time, that Liv has communicated that she misses him. She has been asking where Daddy is and pretending he is a little polly pocket, carrying him around with her ha. Tonight though, she cried and cried for her was heartbreaking really. We called him up and I let her talk to him so she could hear him tell her he would be home soon, but she told me again at bedtime "I reawy want dada come home soon".

Since Pat left on Friday, Liv and I had a girl's weekend. I wanted to keep her busy because every mom knows how long a day can seem if you sit inside the whole time with your toddler. We got up bright and early on Saturday because there was a "parade of garage sales" in our neighborhood. I was on the hunt for a tricycle and not only did I find that, but we got a picnic table, a cozy coupe, and a tool set all for under $40! Liv threw a little fit because she wanted this playhouse that was very used and marked at $35, so I said no. She talked about it all day a few hours later she said to me "mawbe daddy bring me and git it for me?". I told Pat he's in trouble because she's got his number :).

Like I said, Pat will be home Wednesday. Usually when he is out of town, his return date is wishy washy. This time is different because he has to be home for Thursday because it's my immigration appointment, so I will FINALLY be a permanent resident of Canada! whoop whoop! It's only been about two years in the making and damn it feels good to almost be finished with it.

I'm going to follow up this lengthy post with an absurd amount of pictures :).

Birthday Boy smooth! With Moustaches of course :)
