Announcement

February 4, 2007 at 10:03 am (Personal Revelations & Whatnot)

I’ve made a decision, and I’m not moving from it.

If you, or someone you know, has a problem with something that I’ve posted on my blog, then you need to contact me directly to begin a discussion about removing it.

I’m sick of 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th parties trying to judge me and what I say here, and make their demands on behalf of others. I understand you may think you are being helpful to a friend, but unfortunately, things are getting mixed up and twisted in the interpretation phase. Do not contact Emma in hopes that I will listen to her more than I’ll listen to anyone else. Do not go to Emma’s mother and ask her to talk to Emma about talking to me about removing anything. They have nothing to do with my blog, so leave them out of it. I’ve told Emma the same thing I’m telling all who read this:

If it’s not worth it for you to talk to me directly about issues you have with what I’ve said, then it’s not worth it for me to take it down.

End. Of. Story.

Moments with myself

December 30, 2006 at 9:05 am (Personal Revelations & Whatnot)

Emma’s gone off grocery shopping with her mum, so I’ve got some time alone for the first time since being here. It’s so quiet. I’m sitting in our livingroom, near a large picure window. I can see the hills through the fog. Like always, it’s raining. More like a drizzle, but a cold one. The neighborhood we live in is full of retirees, and every so often, they walk by the house, going who knows where. They are always polite enough to wave to me, even though they don’t know who I am. I wave back, since maybe I will get to know them.

I walked in our back garden for a bit, barefoot, in the rain, like I used to do at my house in Tiverton. The ground was much colder but softer, and the grass had a different texture. We’ll see how it is come summer time, when I like to just sit in the grass and read or crochet. I put some stale bread in the birdfeeder, and some ravens came by for a snack. From the back yard, I can see the chapel that the town was named after. It’s older than the USA, and I went inside it this past summer with Emma’s dad.

I started crocheting a blanket on the plane, and I’ve kept it going since. It’s going to be one large granny square, made of Caron’s Rainbow Dream, in Jet Stream. It’s like a mixture of greens, purples, and blues. It’ll match the colors of the bed set we have. I lost my reading glasses a while back, so when I was out shopping yesterday, I bought a pair from Boot’s. It’s a cheapo pair, but they do the job.

I think I wrote this in my sleep?

Well, not really. But I think whoever did is in my head. I found it while browsing Craiglist’s Top Posts of 2006. Read the rest of this entry »

Funk.

October 25, 2006 at 7:55 pm (Personal Revelations & Whatnot)

This will be a slow blogging week. I dropped off Emma at the airport this afternoon, so I’m in a HUGE funk. I won’t see her until December 27th. 😦

When I get out of it, remind me to let you know about me getting a flat, but changing my tire on my own, about the assholes I’m dealing with for my car, and getting more wedding pics up.

Em left me a sticky note on the framed wedding picture I have in my room that I didn’t see until just about 45 minutes ago. “Sarah, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m going to miss you. Please take care of yourself. I love you.” Yeah, I cry everytime I look at it.

Worst. Morning. Ever.

October 23, 2006 at 7:43 am (Personal Revelations & Whatnot)

I absolutely, positively did not want to come into work today. It was a combo of things – Emma leaving on Wednesday and me wanting to spend as much time with her as possible, me being in such a deep sleep that I was dreaming up to the minute that my alarm went off, headache, and just overall fed up so much with “Steve” that I don’t want to go into work.

But, I have to. Crochet Club today. Meeting with the principal to let him know I’m leaving today. Meeting with “Steve”, his mentor, my supervising teacher about Steve’s “lack of abilities” today.

Ugh. I wanna go home.

A few wedding pics

October 17, 2006 at 7:08 pm (Personal Revelations & Whatnot)

Emma has downloaded the pics from our wedding off the camera (the candids that my family took). She’s going to spend tomorrow editing them, but just for my pals who read my blog, she did up a few Read the rest of this entry »

And…..breathe!

October 17, 2006 at 9:02 am (Personal Revelations & Whatnot, The Big Move)

God, I’m glad it’s all done and over with. Don’t get me wrong, I had a WONDERFUL wedding and honeymoon, but the stress was getting to me. I don’t know how people can have the anxiety of such a huge event looming over their heads for months. I had to deal with my small bit for about two weeks in all. I couldn’t imagine if I had to also include all the odds-and-ends that I didn’t have at my wedding, like flower arrangements, hall rental, full course meals, djs, bride’s maids and groom’s men…forget it! I’m glad I didn’t honeymoon in Hawaii, that’s for sure.

So now, I’m back to my normal life, as a wife, as a daughter, as a teacher. I’m back at work, seeing my chreubs again. Em and I spent yesterday running around to get things ready for my passport renewal and visa application. I’m hoping to send off my passport this week on a rush, that way I can get it back sooner, so I can sent out my spousal visa application sooner. We still have to get copies of the marriage license and wedding photos in order to include them in the packet.

I have photos of Crochet Club, and candids from my wedding that I’ll put up later today, when I get back to the house. My Wedding Story page, and my Honeymoon story page (linked above) is all done, too.
