Travis and Becky Fletcher: March 2006

Time goes by.. so slowly

No offense Madonna, but time has gone by so QUICKLY! I know I whine and whine about Travis being gone and how hard it is to live here all alone without him, blah blablah.. But guess what! He has been gone for 11 months!! And there is less than a month to go! I only have three weeks of school left, then one test during exam week on the monday, a dress fitting in Calgary on wednesday, then I am up to Fort McFaraway to help Travis pack up! Then, thursday the 27th is his last day at Suncor!!! On the 29th, Amanda is so nicely planning a wedding shower for me in Edmonton, which is halfway between Fort McMurray and Lethbridge, so that will nicely break up our drive on the way back. Then, he is HOME FOR GOOD!!! Things are looking up! I hope Toby likes the drive down. I "called him", since we are taking separate vehicles home most likely, and I don't have the priveledge of living with our kitty cat. Although a 10 hour drive with a cat is most likely not the best way to get to know and love one. He has not enjoyed the car in the past.. OK maybe I'm having second thoughts. What do you think, Amanda? (long story short, Gizmo peed on Manda's lap right in the beginning of a long drive = big stench all the way. awww, the howler)

So I was nicely arranging my material samples on my bed for my project, and Nikita felt the need to walk across them about 20 times! Why do they always lay or walk right in what you are doing? She loves to sleep on my homework. But when I want to cuddle, she is nowhere to be found.

Oh yeah.. back to the countdown.. after Travis and I get back to Lethbridge, there is only a short month and a bit left before the BIG day!! Wish us luck!

P.S. Mom did take the camera to the land of summer, so no pics of the wedding yet.

One Hundreth Post!!!

Well, it's been a while. It's been a crazy little while. I have really been trying to focus my attention on schoolwork since I have only one month left! its official, only 4 weeks! Our business professor just informed us that we only have 2.5 weeks left of this class, because of holidays and what-not! I'm not sure what the what-not is, because, to tell you the truth, I rarely listen in this class.. Just write down the notes that are on the board. That is awesome that there's only 2.5 weeks left because I hate this class!

Travis came down this past weekend! We had a really good time. It was a super short weekend, since he got the friday morning flight, not the thrusday night one, and he left on Sunday in the afternoon instead of Monday morning. But guess what! That was the last time he ever has to fly down!! Can you beleive it?? There is only one month left of his stay in Fort McSucky! He might drive down in two weeks to pick up the family van to he can move all his stuff down, but if he doesn't, I have to bring it up when I'm done school. I really hope he comes to pick it up, not just so I can see him again, but because if he doesn't, I have to drive it all the way up instead of flying, and we would have to drive back down for 10 hours separately! How dumb is that?? Anyway, I think this was the first time I didn't cry when he left, I was actually happy because the end is in sight!

If you haven't already read my sister's blog, I would like to share some exciting news that she is pregnant!! YAY Christy! The only bad thing is that her bridesmaid dress is made already, but we bought lots of material, so if we need to, we can make her a new one. Who needs Dupioni Silk table runners anyway? Baby Heigh comes first!

So back to this weekend, our good friends, Gord and Courtney got married this Saturday! It was a gorgeous wedding and we really enjoyed ourselves. I'll put some pictures up soon. Unless mom has the camera in Summerland... We'll see I guess.

I guess blogger hasn't been much of a priority in my life at the moment, but I thought I'd give you all an update. Hope you enjoyed it. Only 74 more days until the BIG day, and 27 days until all my classes and tests are over and I can go up to Fort McMurray and help Travis move back HOME FOR GOOD!

In dire need of a break...

Office Studio is soooo draining! I'm trying to get the floor plan of my office done, but it is taking forever, and I am not really into it. I actually haven't been into any of my classes lately. All I want is to be done, and have Travis back home, and GET MARRIED ALREADY! haha. This year has reall gone by really fast. I can't believe Travis has already been gone for almost 11 months! Only 1 more month to go!! (plus a week and a half..) It's so unfair.. all these couples who have gotten engaged after us are getting married before us! No fair! I wanna be married now! On the 25th, Gord and Courtney are getting married, so expect some pictures soon after that. It may be the baby boom in Summerland, but it is definately the wedding boom here. I think we know of at least 13 couples getting married this year! We are not going to all of them, mind you, but we know a lot of people getting married! Anyway, I think I'll go waste some more time by checking other people's blogs.. Sorry I'm boring!

3 months!

So, this is my 97th post, and there are 3 months until the big day! 41 days until classes are over, 91 days until the wedding, and 94 days until the Honeymoon! So much to look forward to. Can you believe that in just 3 short months I am going to be a MRS??? AAAND only a month and a half until I'm done school and Travis comes home!! For GOOD! weee! He actually said yesterday that he's kinda sad that he only has 1.5 more months to play WOW uninterrupted. He doesn't want to cut back when he's back. He's going to set up his computer at my mom's house since it has cable and play there! I guess that could mean that he will be around me a whole bunch more, but it also could mean that whenever he comes to my house he is going to be pre-occupied. Oh dear. What am I getting myself into? No I'm kidding. Im super excited to live with my computer obsessed husband. notice no exclamation mark. YAY!

The pictures I was telling you about

These pictures show some of the great architecture in Barcelona by Antoni Gaudi. cool, hey? and also some other sites I hope to see on the cruise.

So this is the B&B that Travis and I might stay at while we are in Barcelona for 5 nights (and 4 days, but its the nights that count on the honeymoon, or so I hear) It is a 5 minute walk from the beach, and close to the old sector of town, and they have bicycles that we can use! How cute!

What did he tell me?? Let me tell you. He told me where we are going for our honeymoon!!! Now get prepared.

So we decided we would have our Valentine's day today, since Travis was gone for that special love day, and hasn't been back until now. Anyway, first we helped his dad put in some tiles at his house and then we went out for supper where we love to go for special occasions. La Bella Notte. It's a beautiful restaurant made out of a restored old firehall. Supper was really good, but thats not the point.

So Travis handed me the letters A, L, B, A, C, N, R, E, and O individually and told me to try and figure out the puzzle. Can you figure it out? It actually took me a while and took a couple hints for me to spell out Barcelona!! So I was really excited. I did not expect Travis to tell me this early! He had always said he wanted to tell me right before we left, but he said tonight that he wanted me to be able to be exited with him. And excited I am!! So then he proceeded to give me the flight itinerary, and we are leaving June 13th, 3 days after the wedding, we load on a plane in Calgary and head out to London, then Frankfurt, and finally Barcelona, Spain! On the 25th we head back in the same direction, but get to spend 2 days in London, England before we head home. So this, and some pamphlets about Spain were all he showed me at this point. Then he said, "So we have to figure out what we are going to do for 4 days in Barcelona."... 4 days, it shows here we have 12 days in Barcelona. Then here comes another surprise.. He handed me another pamphlet, this time for Norweigian Cruiselines!!! We are going on a 7 day Mediterranean cruise! On Norweigian Cruiselines newest, biggest ship!! We go from Barcelona to Messina, Italy, then to Naples/ Pompeii, Italy, then Rome, then Livorno, Italy, then Nice, France, and then back to Barcelona. Can you beleive it?? I get to go see some of the best things in the world! Check out our ship, at . Theres links to pictures of our rooms, the restaurants, and all sorts of good stuff!

So in Spain we get to hang out on beaches, see all the awesome architecture I learned about in class, mostly by Gaudi. They are gorgeous, eccentric places. Then we get to see all sorts of things like the Leaning tower of Pisa, Roman Collosium, go on the Gondolas (love boats) in Italy, and all sorts of cool stuff! And in London I get to see a bit of Travis' past.

The picture toolbar is being annoying and not letting me post them, but don't you worry, they will be coming soon!!

100 days!

Can you believe that there are only 100 days left until our wedding??? In and HOUR, it's going to be 99 days!!! There's only 2 digits in that number!!! I'm so excited! It's actually getting closer! I have to admit, I said I would be pretty panicked when there would be 100 days left, but I'm not! After that marathon of a week last week getting so much planning done, we are in pretty good shape! Next up, addressing and sending out INVITATIONS!! I'm actually really excited to do this. We have the addresses very organized so it's just a matter of following the list and getting them done. Although I'm sure I'll get sick of it after 20 or so. Or maybe not. Maybe every single invitation will be a pleasure to address, stuff, lick, seal, lick the stamp, and put in their appropriate piles. Good luck to me. haha. And then will come the mass mail-out and hand deliveries. It may seem cheap, but I'm planning on hand delivering some of the invitations to people I see regularly, like people at school and work. But lets not call it cheap, lets call it personal. Since they will each receive an invitation personally delivered by the bride-to-be herself. Yeah, sounds fancy to me!

So I thought I would put this out there, what do your computer desktops look like? Take a screen shot and post them on your blogs, if you feel like it. Just hit the "PrtSc" button, paste into paint, and save. Just make sure you save it as a JPEG file, or blogger won't post it. I've made that mistake a few times! So, without further adieu, here is my desktop: I think that a desktop really shows what is important in a person's life. You'll notice the picture of Trav and I, and the two countdowns, one for the end of school, and one for the wedding. You'll also notice that the wedding countdown already says 99 days, 23 hours etc, because it is an hour faster due to the upcoming time change! woohoo! 99 days already!! I've also got all kind of AutoCAD programs, Herman Miller (office systems manufacturer) software, and all sorts of other goodies. If only I could keep all that software after school....too bad this lappy is a rip-off!! Have a good day!
