Do you all remember how I said I knew there was a reason God put me at my new job but I didn't know why yet (other then it is awesome!) well today I was smacked in the face with one reason......I was talking to one of the people who work there, just about us looking to buy a house in the next few years and then the conversation turned to her daughter and buying a house because she was pregnant and her and her boyfriend at the time wanted to move into a house. A few seconds later she says "they didn't end up buying it, they broke up and she lost the baby"....cue my heart starting to RACE! She didn't say much about the baby but I asked, I asked how far along she was and what happened. She was 23 weeks and they don't know what happened but OMG talk about a small world, I mean infant loss is so common it seems like everywhere I go I know someone who has been affected by it yet its such a taboo subject no one speaks of it. I told her my husband and I had two losses so if her daughter ever wanted to talk I'd be more then willing. She didn't ask any details about the boys but maybe in time she will. If not I hope at least I can talk to her daughter and let her know she's not alone. My heart was POUNDING though, as soon as she said that I was like, no way.....and then I was so nervous to mention the boys but thankfully I didn't have to go into detail yet. With time though. I really hope I can talk to her daughter, I know how hard it can be to not have anyone to relate to. I think it's really important to talk to others who have been in your shoes and gone through such an experience. It helps you feel less alienated and more supported.
Work was great this week and I know a lot of people say that about their first week of work but I really do mean it. I don't see me not liking it ever. I do see myself growing into a career there and going to school for my credit counseling course and moving up that way. Another great perk about small offices, when the boss says it's time to go home, it's time to go home. I was able to leave at 4 today which was great because hubby and I went out for dinner to catch up on our week. We'll be together the whole weekend too (Yah!) Then he is off for a few days next week on overnight trips but my mama is coming to stay with me (yah) and since we got an extra pay cheque this month I am going to finally get my eyes checked and get some much needed new spectacles for myself. My current ones, I have had for over 7 years and there all scratched and junk, I really need a new pair and I'm happy I finally can do it! I've been scoping them out online (zennioptical) and with there prices I may be able to get a pair or two (there about $12-$40 each) Yet another good solid step on the ground for us. We are getting there, very very slowly but surely we are getting there. This week has been a good week. It feels good to be back into a routine and the days are flying by! I can't believe next week is the beginning of August (which means Ribfest yum yum) but it also means only one more month until Jacob's one year. Then after that it's Ty's 2 year.....and Fall. I didn't book the days off for Jacob's one year and haven't for Ty's but my intention is to always book those off. I just didn't feel right with starting a new job and having all my doctors appointments right now, I'm sure I'll be okay. At least during the day. I guess I need ti start thinking of what to do and find a good recipe for Carrot Cake for Jacob.
Alright time for me to go enjoy my apple cake we got at Perogie Place which was deliciously yummy! If your in London, you should check it out.
