Home Alone

I'm sitting at home alone on the Friday of the long weekend. Starting to feel bored for the first time in months.... I remember when I first moved to Grande Prairie. I knew no one, and was hardly involved in anything outside of work. I don't know what I did with my time, or how I wasn't bored every night! 

Mr. A went away for a few nights. He'll be gone for another few days and I thought I would take advantage of the time by myself to relax and re-group. When he's here, I continually use every minute we have together to finalize wedding plans, and do housework, and get his opinions on things. Without him here I feel like I have all this time available to relax. Only problem is that I don't really know how to do that anymore... After sitting for five minutes I'm already making lists of things to do. Once I finished the things on my list, I sat down, watched tv for an hour, and felt bored already. How did I get to the point where I have to be busy at all times?! I don't know... Maybe this is how God is preparing me for the busyness of marriage and children down the road. 

Anyway... One year ago my life was so different. No man, no plans to stay in Grande Prairie, still had the ability to relax in the evenings without making lists... And then I met the man of my dreams! We just celebrated our one year anniversary. Went out for a lovely dinner, and he gave me these lovely flowers :) 

 A new plant for my living room....

.....AND some gerbera daisies :) 

They are so beautiful and a very nice reminder of my man while he's away working. He'll be gone until the middle of next week now. I'm left at home caring for two puppies... which surprisingly, is MUCH more difficult than watching just one puppy. Walks are much more difficult when you have two big leashes, and one dog pooping every chance he gets, and one puppy not understanding how to go around stop signs properly, and both puppies wanting to travel in different directions, and both puppies wanting to chase after other puppies, and chaos everywhere! Seriously... a walk has never been more challenging! How am I gonna do this when I have a stroller too? I guess we'll cross that bridge when we get there. 

Daisy the princess....  

....Joop the prince. 

It's gonna be a fun weekend taking care of these puppies :) Maybe I'll even get another blog post in!

I was totally going to call you last night! But then.. I went to bed. LOL. So there wasn't really anything inspiring happening over here either ;)
It's good for you to take it slower though! You should go to Starbucks with your journal (if you still have one) and write something about all this excitement with being engaged, etc. It'll be fun to read later :)
I'll call you today!
