{Insert Witty Title Here}

Well I haven't posted in a little while so I figured I should say a little somethin' somethin'...although there isn't too much to say. Life goes on. All things are good (or decent at least) here in Hali, still working away, being bored, the usual.

Actually I got some fairly good news at work today. They said that they are going to keep me on as an Admin through Kellys for awhile longer, they said that they are trying to get it approved until March 31st, and then they want to go even longer after that...but the really good news is that they are at the same time trying to get approval to hire me on as a "Casual"...basically it means that I woud work full time for a specific amount of time (they are aiming for 6 months), and I would be employed by the government, not Kellys...this means a raise for me! That would be awesome too, 'cause then I would officially be 'in' with the govi and it would maybe make it easier to get in somewhere else for something more permanent. I'm not sure if I would be in the Government Union if I was just a Casual, but oh well, at least I could put "Government of NS" on my resume later hopefully that all works out, I'm still liking it there and I would really like it if I could stay until we had to move in the sounds of it they wanted me to stay on a lot longer, because everyone was really surprised that I didn't officially apply for the position back at the beginning of the Kathy (someone at work) said that all of the big shots in my department were in a meeting and someone mentioned that I didn't apply for the job and they were all really dissapointed! They like me! It made my day, because sometimes I'm not sure if people like me, or if I'm doing a good job, but by that reaction I would say that they do like anyway, hopefully I'll find out in the next few weeks if I will be hired on, if not, I can at least depend on this job until the end of March, so another 2 months! :)

So that's me and me at home, that's another story...Over the last few weeks I've been getting really agitated at Dan, and I know that alot of it is not his's his job. The overnight shift is really starting to get to him physically I think and it's affecting us here. He's tired ALL THE TIME, and he's been getting alot of colds and stomach aches and things...he'll get up at 5:30pm when I get home (I always have to wake him up and I don't know why, but I resent the fact that he is still asleep when I get home, so that's a bad start), and then he'll shower and eat, and then by 7:30pm, he's back on the couch napping and snoozing and lying around until he has to go to work...part of it is boredom I think, because we really don't do much, but I mean, it's not normal for him to be sleeping so much...last night he didn't go to work because he was sick, so he slept from about 8am until 5pm, woke up, and was back in bed with me last night by about 12pm and slept until 9:30am this morning...that's a crazy amount of anyway, because of all this, I'm always agitated and pissy with him, because he's always asleep and I guess I resent the fact that he'd rather sleep than spend time with me, or something like that, I just don't like him sleeping at all these weird hours, I wish we were on the same schedule...this isn't a new thing for us, he's always slept more than me (I usually sleep 6-7 hours, 8 tops, but he averages about 8-10) and I've always disliked it, I guess I think it's a waste of time, but this job is just emphasizing it...anyway, we have to live with it for a few more months, there's not point in him quitting now and working somewhere for 3 months or less then go plant I'm stuck with the zombie for awhile longer. I just hope I can learn to be more patient with him, because it's getting in the way, it really is.

(And yes, we did talk about him having this high iron thing-hypochromatosis, I think-that all the boys have, but he doesn't really want to go, or doesn't have the time to go, get tested by the doctor....he needs a blood test I think, he was supposed to get checked a little while ago for this but hasn't yet, and he was the one with the highest iron amonst the boys, and fatigue is the most common symptom, so I'm hoping he'll go in and get it done sometime, maybe when I go in to get my blood work.

Well that was quite the babble, I suppose that's all...oh, our new computer is beautiful, we just need a few cables to hook it up to the printer and the stereo and things....and also the a cable for the digital camera (which I LOVE having)...all courtesy of our awesome brother/brother in law Trevor :) We went to visit last week end and it was very nice, Sean is as cute as can be (and he liked me!) Definately got the baby fever after that...

Ok, that's all for real I think...ciao
