Finally! I've been cleared for sports and and exercise! The recovery wasn't as long as originally thought and thank goodness for that! I don't think I could have handled 3 weeks of no Dodgball. We're in the middle of the season and I need to be there as often as possible.

March is just around the corner and there is so much happening the month. I'm still amazed at how much has changed since meeting the girls a new comers event a couple of months ago we've become a group of 5 and it's so freaking awesome! I've never had a group of friends like this. We can all hang out together or we can hang out separately and we just have fun. It's fascinating. We have lots of plans for March, inlcuding Miranda's 26th birthday party, my 25th Birthday dinner, OUR birthday hotel night for just us girls which will be taking place at the beautiful Chateau Frontenac and so much more! It's intense but so freaking awesome.

We've started looking at houses! We're not rushing into anything but we've definitely started looking. We have a lease until next year but we found out that we can pretty much get a mortgage with nothing down and we qualify for a good amount. We're just waiting until we find the perfect place :) I, of course, am obsessed with looking at places but I'm being reasonable. There are a lot of things on my hubands checklist which makes it pretty hard to find something for him to be interested in. But, like I said, we're in no rush. Though, I am hoping that we have something before next summer! I'd like to use some of the money from the mortgage to visit our friends who will be moving to France for a year! Shhh....

Baby talk has not been uttered out of my mouth for quite some time now and it's SUCH  relief! I think because of having a life and friends again it's really really helped with that. I think the whole baby thing was about filling a void and now that void has been filled (for the moment) it's a lot of pressure off.

Me and the hubby have been doing AMAZINGLY well! We've kind of gotten back into a honeymoon stage or we're just truly, madly and deeply in love with eachother! I'm not sure but I LOVE IT! We have so much fun together and it's just so great. We're going on 6 years this year and 2 years of marriage which I know isn't a LONG time but it's special to me. I love him <3

That's about it for now. I gotta meet the girls for dinner very soon. ciao and HAPPY MONDAY!

shortly after that last post my appendix decided it was tired  of being inside of me and went into attack mode. I had emergency surgery and spent the weekend in the hospital. I'm on bed rest for the next week and  cannot play dodgeball for atleast the next month! all I can say about this is that Thank Goodness it happened here in Quebec and not while I was in the states! My insurance paid for EVERYTHING. So, all we have to worry about is getting better. that feels good. i'll keep you posted.

We go in expecting everything to work out the way it's supposed to. In a perfect world we expect to always be happy. If only life were that simple.

I've experience a lot of emotions in that past 8 months and even MORE throughout the last 6 years and it's been hard and impossible sometimes but that's because as humans we seem to focus so much on the bad and we let the good slip right by us. I'd like to think that if there was a chart of my life the good would more than out weigh the bad.

I've met some amazing people in the short time span that I've been living in Quebec. I've started going to school, I've made some amazing girlfriends and I've become a part of a community. I've made a life for myself here. I feel at home.
