Saturday Night

It’s 10:30 on Saturday night and I am sitting at home alone. I had better get used to this. I originally started this blog out of loneliness and boredom as my man is in the navy and sailed a lot, I had just moved to be with him and knew nobody. It is almost the same now. I had one good friend who happened to be the girlfriend of of one of Scott’s friends and he got posted on the other side of the country. Bye-bye friend. My fiance will now be know as Scott. It makes things a lot easier. I sort of made became friends with a girl from work but I am not sure where that’s going. Is not that I don’t have friends they just all happen to live on the mainland where I hail from. It only happens to be a 95 min ferry ride away so I go home more often than not on the weekends (or I did) now it is becoming more annoying to travel being pregnant. Or people will come and visit me. I am trying to stay home more to plant some roots which never seems to happen. I haven’t plugged into an activity or group and I have been here 10 months. There are a lot of navy wives around here once the weather is nicer hopefully I will meet some. Their is a couple next door about our age with an infant so we will see if anything will happen with that. It seems that I just got back from being away and now they are.

As of late things on my mind are:

-Getting this place organized

– Painting the nursery

– Ordering the nursery furniture

We found out today that painting the nursery will be a lot more painful than originally thought. As we have some sort of oil based paint that is shiny we have to take sand paper to the wall to scuff it up, use an oil type primer (which apparently stinks like crap) and apply 2 coats of paint. I have never really decorated a room so it will be a fun little project. When else will I get to take sand paper to a wall?

As for baby furniture I am undecided at this point as to what I really want. I have always thought natural was the way to go, but this antique black crib is really posh… But the price isn’t. I will probably go for something more like this but I will order it from Wal-Mart where to price is about $130 cheaper than Sears for the exact same thing. They just do not have the selection that Sears does or Wal-Mart in the U.S. I am tempted to order my crib from walmart.com and pick it up across the border, but that isn’t as feasible then I will have to pay duty on top of it. The prices are so much cheaper though. I bought the baby bedding set down there and it was so much more cheaper especially with the Canadian dollar doing as well as it has.

Well I am going to get going and do something useful like organize my toiletries in the bedroom and have a hot bath as my back is aching. The joys of being pregnant. So far as a housewife, I suck.

    When you buy the primer, get the store to tint it the same colour as your top coat. That way, you might be able to get away with only one coat of paint (since you have to paint over it again when you move out).
