Waiting... [Jan. 20th, 2006|09:33 am]
alcaison
...is mostly what things are about these days. We're waiting to get our appointment with the fertility clinic. We're waiting for the election. Waiting for my hair to grow out. Waiting on employment verifications. Its boring to wait. The fertility appointment thing isn't that big of a deal anyway. The appointment won't be till May or June, regardless and Becky has to spend at least 3 months charting her basal body temperature anyway before anything can get going, but it would still be nice to have a date to look forward to. The Canadian election thing is rather fascinating. There is so much I can't even fathom. Like, having a record of voting liberal and then deciding that well, for this election I think I'll vote conservative. What is that? In the US, I think you are born one way or the other and barring some religious conversion (or unconversion) you pick your team for life. Regardless of who wins, its going to be minority, but it is still worrisome if the conservatives win because that means that Canada might lose that which makes it so attractive to us. We could lose our marriage if Harper gets his way. Sure, a lot has to happen between now and that outcome, but still, it makes you think. We did all of this, moved all this way, just for that right, and to have it threatened within 6 months of getting here is pretty fucking rotten. Bastard conservatives. Why? Why you gotta hate? Cause it doesn't matter how you dress it up in morality and religious fanaticism or plain ole stick-up-the-ass, it comes down to you telling me what I can and can't do because you're passing judgment on me. Well, I got some judgment for YOU. Just stay the fuck out of my life because believe me, I want NOTHING to do with yours. And we're also waiting on employment verifications. We're applying for permanent residency in Canada ( gotta do it cause if Harper has his way and same-sex marriage gets killed, I could lose the right to work in Canada because my work permit is granted because my spouse has a sponsored work permit) and it means I have to have a letter from every employer I've had since I turned 18 verifying I did indeed work there. Jeez. Yep, even all of those summer student jobs. Such a pain. Like I would lie about making $745 (for a whole summer of work) from Holden Beach Surf and Scuba. Oh well, elections make me grumpy.

Hi Amy!!!!

So glad to see you guys on here. I wanna hear all your bitching and moaning. Keep up the good work.

I like how you said bfd if your relatives find this blog. I feel the same way. In fact, I give mine out to them. I figure if they don't wanna hear it, they don't have to read it.
