Life Update:

I had my second interview with the Bank this morning at 9 am and I am hoping that I get the job but I am really wanting to get a new job that I came across two days ago. The job is for a part time county clerk position that pays substantially more then the bank and fits in nicely with what I have been studying for the last forever years.

Yesterday I started an "around the world" competition at my gym that is "the ultimate body challenge" and is kicking my butt. It consists of running 38 miles, doing 2100 feet on the step machine, 279 sets of core training, 120 miles on a bike, 148 miles on the elliptical, 300 sets on free weights and 250 sets on the circuit machines all in 30 days and we are only allowed to do 1.5 hours per day. My body is screaming at me :P

Last week Tim, Ava and I bought furniture for our house. If you have ever been here you would have noticed that all we have is a couch there is no kitchen table, no coffee table, no chairs, no carpet, no place to put shoes, no place to eat dinner... It was really exciting to be able to buy new things since neither of us have ever really owned anything new before.

For about a month we have been going back and forth to the Skagit Humane Society looking for a dog and as of today are still waiting and looking.

So maybe next week I will have a job, a dog, a sorer body and pictures to show you of my new furniture.

I need to work

When your married in America
Yet hail from Canada you cant always do the job that you wanted to do because of the many many different social structures of the town you live in.

So you (me) apply at a bunch of places and wait and wait

Until today comes along and you have two interviews in one day for two completly different jobs.

1) a hotel
2) a bank

I interviewed (if you can call it an interview) at the hotel at 10am and it went well even though the hotel dog (the owner's) growled at me.

In about 9 mins I will start an interview with the bank.... I am nervous. I like being nervous. I just ate a bunch of ice cream too. And hummas. Gahhhhh

Feet Day Three

So I once again I forgot my camera as me and Timmy went on a mission to Skagit Valley Humane Society and N.O.A.H to find our family a dog and/or cat to adopt.

We found no cat that would be suitable but we found two dogs that we liked...one a pit bull and the other a jack russell terrier that was recently rescued from a huge puppy mill bust that happened at the beginning of the year. We put an application in for the smaller dog and now are patiently waiting until Monday to see if we qualify.

1pm Eating lunch together at Red Robins ( I wear these shoes alot)

230pm-3pm Patiently but not so patiently waiting in the car as Tim picks up electrical supplies.

4pm Washing dishes together before we begin to make some food.

If you don't already know I was born and raised in Canada, west coast Canada to be exact.
On October 18th 2008 I got married to my American love, I packed up my things and moved to America and because I got married in America there were two things I needed to do to be legal.
1) Apply for Green Card
2)Apply for Social Security Number

I did both of these things the beginning of November 2008. I received my not-so-green Green Card in January and was excited because it said I was legal to live and work in the States.

My social security card is another story. At the office they told me it would be 2-4 weeks, well I applied November 3 and excpected my card by the end of November which would have meant I could have started some type of Job but it never came.

I went back January 6th and told the social security office that my card never came and the man who originally talked to me said he forgot to send my information and that my card would come in no more then 4 weeks but it never came

I went back for the third time March 4 to figure out what had happened with the time frame they told me and talked to the exact same person but what did he say? He told me that I did not exist in their computer, I showed them the official document that they gave me in November saying I would recieve my card in 2-4 weeks and they looked baffled, then pushed some buttons on their computer and said it would be at my place in 2-4 weeks ( ya right is what I said) . Well today I found out they lied because I got the card today, one week earlier then they said.

So to commemorate that I finally have my SSN, here is some cute pictures of my step daughter Ava(there is no real correlation between what happened today and her but I thought that she looked so cute while we were out eating)

Feet Day 1

7am laying in bed with Ava, not quite ready to get dressed for the day.

8am Ava dressed for school and me getting dressed for the gym

1pm At Penguin coffee "studying"

6pm About to start cooking some dinner... Here I am standing in the doorway from my room to the hallway highlighting the two hardwood floor colours we have in our house.

The Start


Welcome here.

This is my new blog.

Because I live a new life.

Join me while I am married in america.

Feet for a week

In an attempt to be more diligent at blogging I am going to utilize a concept that I really appreciated on my friend Leah's blog in which she photographed "her life in feet" for a week, so starting later on tonight you will be invited to join me via blogger and photos "in my life according to feet" for a week.

First Post

Married in America has made it so that;

Instead of driving my sweet little Honda Civic I now drive a Cheverlot Truck that needs bungee cords to keep the doors closed
