bits and pieces

- Chris finally got his last pay cheque from the company that laid him off today. It's a seasonal layoff, but seriously, his last day was March 18th...sheesh. Funnily enough (is that even a word?) they told him they are going to try to call him in next week for a bit of shop work!

- While he was in the city, I sent him to a career fair. He was able to put out 8 resumes in person, so here's hoping...

- I'm working on a huge engine overhaul pre-authorization claim, it's a comparitive repair versus replace worksheet and it's way over my head. I'm waiting on the foreman or the service manager to help me out, but they are too busy...ugh, it's annoying me to no end.

- We still haven't recieved his EI payment. I'm starting to get really sick of living off of nothing and waiting for unemployment to kick in. I hope he finds a full time, non-seasonal, regular paying job soon.

- It's getting super nice out lately. I love how warm it is and sun-shiny! Although, wish I could spend more time out in it.

- Chris started a project on our front lawn. He is putting up a border, hauling in tons of dirt, leveling and planting grass. It looks like crap right now, but I'm excited to see how it turns out. We are hoping to build a deck this summer and a shed for the yard. We did a huge spring clean a few weeks ago so the house is in good shape, but the yard is in need of something. It's all brown, dirty, and yucky. The snow has finally melted all away.

the big 2-8

Today is my birthday. I'm 28. I feel older somehow. But since I turned 25 I've felt like I'm on the downhill roll to 30.

I think part of my issues lately rely on the fact that I'm not exactly where I pictured myself to be at 28.

Overall, I'm happy, but I can't help but think that something is missing.

How much flirting is allowed when you are in a relationship?

When is it crossing the line?

When does it really just mean life and normal human interactions?

Can men and women really be friends?

Can 2 people that once dated, after a time, be friends? Talk regularly?

These things are on my mind today. And an ex that has resurfaced in my life....and on my phone.

I need advice. I'm not sure how to proceed, or what to say or how to say it.

I'm not sure I really want to put into words the confusion that is around my head. It might make it worse that way.

It's like the old saying, if a tree falls in the middle of the forest and no one is around, does it still make a sound?

So, if I feel the way I feel and I have the thoughts that I have, if I keep them to myself, are they still bad?

I'll come back to it... I need more time to decide if I really want to go there. ugh.
