24 weeks! 16 to go

So, yesterday (Nov. 25) was the 24 week mark! and I still look like there's nothing going on inside of me :( I will take another picture anyhow...just for kicks.

Speaking of kicks...this kid is going to be a soccer player when he/she grows up. There is not a dull moment in my day...actually, the baby is kicking now as I type.

Dh and I were lying in bed, and he was getting dissapointed because he couldn't feel the kicks yet. I had my hand on my tummy, and I FELT A KICK! and I grabbed his hand, and put it on my tummy....a few moments later...he felt the kick!!!! He was soooooooooo happy!!!!! I'm so glad he felt the kicks.

I got new glasses yesterday, they are nice...but boy oh boy....they're gonna take a while to get used to...either that or something is wrong with the lenses...which I actually think it is. Things look closer and a little warped. So, if I can make it to the optical today to get them looked at, I'll try.

Today is also my 6 mth checkup...can't wait for that one. They're always good!


Thanks for reading!

Baby Wojcik




So, I finally decided that it was time to show the world our little miracle's first photos. These pictures are taken at 19wk,5days. We do not know the sex of the baby, and we do not wish to find out, we'll know when the baby decides to meet us. Thank you for letting me share this wonderful joy with you.

Random thoughts

DH and I went to our interview in Halifax...and well, it was a complete waste of time and money for us. The guy just talked about this one property that he wanted to hire for on Monday....this monday...so that would give us 2 days notice to our bosses. Plus it was bigger than the one we have now...and we're trying to downsize no go bigger. So we said no. Well, that was pretty much it for discussion. We were under the impression from the HR dept. that they would talk a bit more about other properties, but there was nothing there..the guy couldn't wait to get us out of the office...as you could tell he was very bored. WE took the time out of our day where we could have been doing things around the property or whatever else...UGH!!! it just made me frustrated! DH did have another interview with a company in Truro....and the base salary would be exactly what we need! So, we are just praying and hoping that something works out for us soon.

We recieved the ultrasound pictures...17.00 for 2????? that's quite a bit of money there dont ya think?? anyhow...they looked different than what I thought they would. I thought that they'd be bigger...but the tech was zoomed out. Either way it's our miracle that we're looking at :) I will post them as soon as I can :)

Today will be cleaning/packing/storing day. We've decided that we're going to be SUPER prepared for when an opportunity opens up. No, we're not packing away everything we own, but things we dont need will be put away.

I guess that's enough rambling for now...more will come later. thanks for reading!

random mumblings

Today is such a dreary day outside. It's funny though, because I love rain, and I love snow. It's not snowing yet...not until Thursday/Friday. I CANT WAIT!!!! I love how the snow gently coats everything like a cashmere blanket. Everything looks pristine, almost as if you're afraid to touch it because you would ruin perfection. Then again...I love sledding, and snowballs, and snow angels, and making snowmen, and skiing...gotta love skiing.

I've been in a huge rut since I left the DT for LCOM. It seems as if my creativity has left me as well. I'm making cards...but no layouts :( I'm really not too pleased with this at all. If anyone has any mojo, I would certainly love to borrow some until mine comes back.

The project that I'm working on now is a layout for Rememberance Day. Dana posted a note about a Card challenge. However, I asked if I could turn it into a layout instead...I just might do a card too though. Here's the link: http://www.letscaptureourmemories.com/forum/index.php?topic=2827.0 Aren't those cards fabulous!!

So, on another note...I've made it 1/2 way through. I have to admit...I'm truly scared out of my mind...what was I thinking when we decided to do this!! I've never raised kids before....I've only babysat, and heck...I've never even held a newborn! What if I do something wrong? What if I dont feed him/her properly?? What if I dont know why the little one is crying...what if I buy the wrong kind of this or that....what if i'm not a good mother....I know worry is a common enough thing...but I'm near loosing my bloody mind!

Onto another thing...dh and I have an interview on Thursday for a transfer within the compnay, but to another province. If we get it, this will mean yet another move...2 in one year...not bad...right, i'll just keep on telling myself that! It'll mean moving to a bigger city, more traffic, faster way of life, faster everything. But at least we wont feel segregated from our family's, and we wont have to pay a fee to get to the other part of Canada. I dont get it...when I went home to my home town...we paid 20.00 when we left....here for the boat it's 62.00 and the bridge is 42.50!!! Why is it so friggin expensive!!!

I am waiting for paint to dry...maybe that's why I'm rambling so much...and off to make lunch! Thanks for reading!

15 Weeks pregnant...and some big news

Okay, so, we're nearing the end of the 4th month...wow!! I can't beleive how fast it's going by! Today was my doctors appointment, and it was to hear the heartbeat. I was so incredibly nervous...afraid that I wouldn't hear it.

I also felt my uterus today. The doctor felt it, then I asked if I could, and she showed me where it was lol. Then it was time to hopefully hear the heartbeat. Well, she started with the magic wand on my belly, and within a minute we heard the baby's heart beating!! I was sooooo happy and relieved that I started crying. To be quite honest...I was terrified that I wouldn't hear the heartbeat at all, and that something would be wrong. I'm so glad my fears were put to ease.

My ultrasound is scheduled for October 26th, and my next doctor's appointment is for October 29th!!! So very very excited!!!!

10 weeks

Well, each Wednesday, I am a new week pregnant. I am so excited to finally be given the chance to be a mommy. I am due March 17th which is my mom's birthday. At first we thought we were going to find out the sex of the baby, but we decided not to. It was also brought to our attention that they dont allow it at the hospital here. I didn't want to have a doctor at first, I wanted to go with a mid-wife. The only downfall to that was that there are no practicing mid wives here on pei. And I am not travelling the distance to visit one. So, I guess Doctor it is. We're not buying anything yet, we dont see the need for it, but we're keeping our eyes open and looking out for things we just might like. I guess this is enough blabbing.

Sweet Thing


I love this page that I did for the Sketch Team application with http://www.letscaptureourmemories.com/ I'm really like the outcome of it. I've never used flocking powder before, and I thought that I would give it a go....the butterfly tail turned out nicely. TFL!

Design Team, LCOM

I am so excited tonight!!! I came home from work ,and had a really hard night. So, I go about checking all my internet stuff as I usually do. And I honestly did not think that I would make the DT team with LCOM, but I did :) I'm so excited. There's a great group of girls on it too!! I feel so incredibly privileged to be with them. I can't wait to start!!

Sketch Team

So, I applied for the Sketch Team at Let's Capture Our Memories and I've got my fingers crossed....really, I do. But, if I dont make it then that's fine too....I'll just keep scrapping!

Fathers Day Card


I find that men are hard to make things for. However, it didn't take me long to make this card for my dad. I grabbed a piece of pp, and then based the colours off of that. I really like how it turned out, and I know that he will too! TFL

Cherish This Moment


I originally did this lo for the design sketch team tryouts....and completely missed. I didn't realize that I was supposed to do a lo from their sketch....oh well, I'll give it another go. This is of our Wedding Day, October 4, 2008

Where's my scrapping ability?

Sometimes, when I sit down to scrap...I can gather all sorts of ideas onto a page. However, a lot of times...I come to a blank. I have beautiful paper in front of me, a great photo....and lots of embellies....so why is it I dont know what to do or what to create. I'm afraid if I put the wrong pp's together it'll look really nasty, and if I dont put the right embellies on it...it'll look really bad. Maybe I need lessons on how to scrapbook again. I started off in the beginning, and I loved it...and now...I still love it...but I just can't get anywhere with it. Maybe I need to learn how to position things on the page properly.......whatever it is....I dont like this feeling :(

In Awe


I've been in a non scrapping mood lately...dont know wth is going on. But, I managed to do this one. I didn't like this picture of my sister at first, but then I kept looking back and it ...and I love it. So, I did something to fit her personality.

So...aparantly....

So....I just had a huge post of our Cavendish Beach trip....and it's not here....WTH!!!!!!!!!

Today is just not my day. It really isn't...I'm sick and tired of seeing negatives on the HPT's....I just want to give up. And If I stop trying, I feel like I might miss my month, or maybe I haven't tried hard enough, and I'll be kicking myself in the behind for not trying. I'm recording my temps, and I'm charting with Fertility Friend. So...I keep thinking...maybe I just can't have kids...or maybe I'm not good enough to have children. It's scary having all those thoughts run through a persons mind, it really is. I mean, I feel inadeuqate because I haven't gotten a positive result yet. I know I haven't been trying for a year or two, but for those of us who have tried and kept trying...and just keep getting disapointed....you know what I'm going through...it's painful, and heart breaking. Sorry...I just had to vent, and get that out.

Well, here's to 7 months of trying....maybe we'll just stop this month...and completely stop. Thanks for letting me rant.

Cavendish Beach











John and I went to Cavendish Beach on Saturday, here are some photos. I absolutely love the scenery there, and the cliffs are gorgeous. Yep, the water was decent enough to walk in. It's funny though, the beach was not red sand as I had expected, it was normal beach sand.

Grandma's 80th Birthday Card

I cannot believe that my grandma is going to be 80!!!

Finally, it's done! And I am pleased with how it turned out! I was going to do something with Owls, because she has a mega collection. However, I was reminded that her favourite colour is purple, and without further adieu...here it is :::

Dare to Have Fun


Since moving to PEI, I haven't really had much of a chance to scrap lately. The move was hectic enough, and then trying to get this apartment in order as best as possible, while realizing that it is in fact smaller than what our 2 bedroom was. However, with all that being said. I did manage to get a layout done. I submitted this one to Canadian Scrapbooker...in hopes that I just might...might get a submission :) Nothing I'd love more! Thanks for reading.

Geocaching!!!

Geocaching, outside of Scrapbooking is one of my most favourite activities to do in any spare time that I may have. If you've never heard of it, go to this website: http://www.geocaching.com and read all about it.

We found 4 this Friday. Although, one of them..the cache was missing. We started in St. Martins and plotted our trip back to Saint John. The first one we found was on top of the caves, and oh boy was it ever high up. Here are the pictures from that one.

Then, we moved onto another one. I dont have pictures of it though, because we didn't find it. IT was missing. But, it was the hardscrabble bridge...very lovely. Our third cache, and I can't mention where though...was located near some caves. The trail was a little washed out, but we managed.


My husband takes joy in getting the weirdest shots ever lol. Or, at least I think he does! So, then we got to go and see some awesome caves!! It was low-tide, and perfect for "cave dwellers"

Easter Eggs!!


So, John and I thought we would re-live childhood and make Easter eggs. Well, here is the finished product!! I love how they turned out! I also improvised and made this fantastic backdrop out of tissue paper!! hehe!

Blueberry Pie

Today upon John's request, I made a blue berry pie. He's been wanting one for ages. Everything about the pie crust turned out beautifully. However, the filling sucked!! There was no taste to it...it was rather bland. This is the 2nd time that I've tried to bake a pie, the first time was an apple pie. And the same type of thing turned out with that one. Next time I do baking, I just might buy the pre-made pie, and bake it in the oven....and no one will ever know the difference!

Taxes and other stuff

I started out by doing paper taxes...you know, ordering the kit and filing it myself. Now, I'm using UFILE. It's not too too bad...but I still hate it. UGH....I almost wished I had someone to pay to do it.

Our car has to go into the dealership on Tuesday, were having transmission problems with it...just our luck

My day isn't really a complete disaster, just some of it.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be better!

Finally...my blog is decently presentable

Ugh....after nearly 8 hours (not consecutive) working on this dang blog...I finally have it just almost to my liking. The only problem is...is that, I cant get the title to work. Sure, it says my name...but that's it. I'd like to have it a little prettier than that :P I've gotten this far with it, just cant figure that out.

Last night, I did my turn for the February Scraplift Challenge for paws. IT was great!! I really want to post it, but not until the reveal!!

I guess it's time to do more scrappy work. DH and I are packing up because we're moving at the end of the month, still dont know where yet. However, our plan B will be revealed on Sunday/Monday of this month. This is in case he does not get a solid job. We're not finding lots to throw out which is good, just a few small things here or there.

Anyhow, gotta get back to blog surfing/scrapping.

Loving you


I have to post this picture that I did for one of the Winter Sketch Fest Challenges at paws. I really like the turn out of this layout, and I'm posting it today, because....today John and I have been married for 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooooooo happy, because he makes me so happy, and I love him to pieces. TFL!

A hamster...

My husband took me to the pet store last night to look at getting a hamster. He thought that it would make me happy to have a pet to take care of around the house. While, I believe his heart was in the right place, we really cannot afford it. I mean, when you think about it...it's 50.00 upfront fee(hamster,cage, food, shavings) I could spend that 50.00 on food, or perhaps it could go to buy a new tire (were saving up for all seasons) So, as much as it might keep me company, Im sure there are other things we could do with that money...heck! Even scrappy stuff :o)

Paws Winter Sketch Fest - 6x12 album challenges so far

This was my first attempt at a 6x12 album. I really like how it turned out :o) The journal says "In December 2007, John and I were living in Edmonton. We wanted to save money on our engagement pictures, so we went to Rundle Park, and had a blast, & took them ourselves. We ended up saving a lot of money and got beautiful pictures." This of course isn't our engagement picture, but it's of us having fun in the park, and just enjoying ourselves.

This is my 2nd attempt at the 6x12 album layout. I really enjoyed doing this one, as it brought back memories of when I was a child. The journal says "We sure loved our poppy. We would always be poppy's girls. I dont remember him, I was (I think) 3 when he died. But I do know that he loved us very much. (1983)"





This is my 3rd attempt at the 6x12 album layout. This special one was fun to do. I really loved taking road trips with my younger sister, and we always had a blast. I'm not going to type out the journalling because theres too much of it, enjoy reading! TFL

I feel like a social reject

Tonight, was supposed to be a fun night for me. No, really it was. I have no idea of what kind of fun I was expecting though. I was going to the movies with the paws girls, and not my husband - first time going out with people other than just my husband and I.

The girls all stood around afterwards and talked, and I guess that's where I consider myself a "social reject". It is not anyone's fault but my own. I wasn't being "snotty" or "stuck up" I guess maybe it's just because for the last 7 months, I have not made any friends, haven't gone out anywhere, and I dont do anything unless my husband is with me. Maybe, it's because I don't know how to react to being around people, maybe I just dont have any kind of social skills.

Whatever it is, as I sit here typing this, a few tears are falling. They're falling because I so badly want to make friends here, and yet...it just seems so far out of my reach.

Maybe this goes back to when I was a kid, and how I sheltered myself. I would always be in my room with my nose in a book...not wanting but desperately wanting to have friends. When the chance would happen, I'd always pass it up. I guess maybe I felt I wasn't good enough to be someone elses friend.

Maybe all this babbling is nonsense, and makes me seem like a pity party all to myself. I'm not like that though. I'm a very nice person, and I believe I have good qualities that would make me a good friend to lots of people. I just dont have the social skills to be that person.
