I have taken to decorating the whole house (call me crazy) and taking our pooch on huge long walks! Quite solitary but it keeps my thoughts to myself!!

Lately it hasn’t really been working to keep my mind off things BUT normally I’ll do a bunch of different things. Hang out with friends. Clean the house. Watch my favourite movies or TV shows. Listening to my favourite bands helps, finding new music to listen to is fun as well. Take a bubble bath and do girly things like paint my nails. Learning something new or taking up a new hobby [I’ve recently been trying my hand at calligraphy, it’s time consuming and requires focus lol…definitely not as easy as I thought it would be!]. I’m also into photography and playing around with photos in Photoshop, graphic design type stuff, etc.

On some days I’ve actually even found that looking at wedding stuff has helped improve my mood and has kept me excited for when it finally happens. 

And, of course, posting on here has been a lifesaver! πŸ™‚

I never understood this whole “keep busy whlie waiting.” I just kept on with life and when it happened, it happened.

I went to Guatemala for the summer, started grad school, lost 25 pounds, etc. I kept busy, to say the least. My evolving relationship with my now Fiance was and remains at the center of my world, but my life is varied and interesting. Time honestly flew, and I came out a better person and more ready for the committment I so wanted.

Suzy133:  press reply at the bottom of the bee’s message to highlight. And nope he doesn’t know even though I do it on his laptop! Means I have to do it when he’s not around which is an extra challenge πŸ˜€ x

I own a business that’s open 7 days a week, have 2 teenagers, and a Husky pup so that keeps me pretty busy but when I do have free time I try to do something nice for myself..massage, manicure, get my hair colored etc. It makes me feel pampered and feminine πŸ™‚
