Travis and Becky Fletcher: June 2007

Monday, June 25, 2007


We just found out on friday that Travis got the job at Captaris!! Yay! It was a good thing, because he spent almost a whole month going through the interview process, only working (building playgrounds) for about a week of that. So he starts next Tuesday. Captaris is actually really close to my work, so, depending on what time he works, we might be able to carpool! And it will really help with eventually buying a house, rather than having jobs on opposite ends of the city and deciding who gets to drive longer to work.

I am so anxious for the next stage in our lives.... Homeownership. We just need to get Travis' student line of credit payed off and save some money. Hopefully that will be motivation enough to live cheaper! I heard on the radio that Calgary is starting to become a buyers market! The houses are still very expensive, but there are enough on the market now that the houses are actually worth their selling price, and people can't just charge any rediculous price. Let's hope this trend continues for a few months!

Travis' meez

Seven Random Facts

Since I was tagged by Susan, it's now my turn to share 7 random facts.

Here are the rules… Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog.

  1. My big toe is ABNORMALLY bigger than all the rest of them, and the rest of them are all curled (hammer toes). This creates some problems for shoe purchasing, and I wear a hole into socks within days of buying them where my big toe goes. You can see a picture of them here.
  2. I'm not a neat person. I really wish I was, and I could be if I wanted to. But... lets face it, I like a good sit on my rear after work.
  3. When I was little I was SUPER shy. My parents kept trying to get me out of my little world by enrolling me in sports. That didnt ever last too long. I was in figure skating for one year, but didnt want to go back because I WAVED TO MY DAD during our final performance, which we were strictly told not to do. I was in gymnastics for a year, but I broke my arm, and of course didn't go back. I got out of Volleyball camp before it even started.
  4. Also when I was younger I was very fragile emotionally. You could make me cry at the drop of a hat, just ask my brothers. My catch phrase was "you hurt my feeeeeelings". Physical pain, however, was a different situation. When I broke my arm in gymnastics my parents didnt believe me, and it took a couple of days before I got a cast on it.
  5. I fell (actually was accidentally pushed) out of the back of a truck at my cousin Dianna's house when we were little, and I stayed in the Coaldale Hospital with a big goose egg for a night.
  6. I have no will power when it comes to fries or Starbucks. No diet will ever hold me back. Travis calls me a "fry monster".
  7. I have not found my passion. I like interior design, but I am not passionate about it. I wish I had that. I thought it might be photography, and dont get me wrong, I looove taking pictures, and love my D50, but I'm not passionate about that either.

I tag Lisa, Christy, Amanda, Courtney, Robyn, Meghan, and Janice.

I should be practicing my AutoCAD for work tomorrow, but I discovered a website ( that lets you create a character for yourself. Here's me, and Chloe as a white dog. Make one and post it!
