I'm going to warn you guys ahead of time that this post might be a bit long and random and contain a lot of rambling.
To start off I'll give you a bit of a back story.
November 1st my Fiance, our son, and I moved from BC to Alberta (one Province away from each other) when Mason was only 2 months old. The reason we moved was because Mike is in the Military (Army) and he switched from the Reserves (part-time) to the Regular Force (full-time) because we needed the increased salary that would come with it (for obvious reasons).
The only family that I have in Edmonton is my Aunt, Uncle, and 3 Cousins whom I don't really see all too often. I like them, it's just they live 25 minutes drive away. Mike on the other hand has basically his whole dad's side of the family here even though he doesn't really keep in touch with them.
So on to my "rant".
Since moving to Edmonton I have met a few people but I'm reluctant to make friends because I won't be able to do much or go out much with them anyways because of my son. I'm nursing Mason exclusively right now (although on Tuesday we started giving him Rice Cereal) so wherever I go, he goes. Since my son has to go everywhere with me pretty much I am VERY limited in the places I can go.
Another thing that sucks other than knowing practically no one here is the fact that I don't have much time to myself anymore except after Mason goes to bed at night. The weather doesn't help either with snow and ice on the ground because then you're limited by that as well to what you can do outside.
I'm just seriously feeling REALLY homesick right now and am wishing I was back in BC. At least THEN I'd be near my friends and my family.
Don't get me wrong, I love Edmonton and it has so much to offer but I miss BC so much. I hate being away from my family.
I feel like I have no life right now except for being a mom. I mean, I LOVE being a mom, it's so rewarding, but I want a life at the same time!!
I'm not so social in the first place (I'd rather have a few REALLY good friends rather than a bunch of aquaintances) but this sucks.
All I do every day is take care of Mason, go on the computer, MAYBE go out to get coffee or get groceries or pick up something for the pets. Me and Mike watch a lot of stuff on Netflix and play videos games but seriously, my brain is MELTING because of not being used! I'm worried that by the time I DO go back to school (to be an Animal Health Tech.) that my brain will have melted away and I won't be able to learn anymore, lol.
Ugh, I just wish I could at least go back to BC for a few weeks to visit and "refresh".
I wish I had more to keep me occupied.
Blah, sorry if my horrible mood rubs off on any of you...
