Life Happens When You’re Busy Making Other Plans

HEY everyone, missing MIA blog girl here. I’m here to explain why I haven’t written a blog post in a very long time.

Reason No. 1 I bought a car! This was months of searching and testing and I finally bought one, Kia Optima! It’s amazing and the freedom is great but bills are not.

Reason No. 2 I (sorta) moved in with my boyfriend, so for awhile I didn’t have my laptop (not to mention my laptop broke for awhile) and I’ve been busy making dinner, working and cleaning.

Reason No. 3 Work, work, work, work, work! In my line of work the closer you get to Christmas and New Years Eve the crazier work gets and that’s exactly what happened in my life.

Reason No. 4 My boyfriend and I got a puppy! His name is Drax and he’s the cutest little monster.

He is currently 5 months and 45lbs, he’s going to be huge but he’s a big cuddle monster and power chewer that takes up all my time.

That’s it! That’s my life, that’s what I’ve been up too. Sorry for the very late post and I will try to keep at it!

Thanks for reading,

Maeg.

New Puppy + Reptilia the Reptile Zoo

I know I have been the worst blogger lately since I’ve been completely MIA for a month. Have no fear I come with something interesting to write about!

Last weekend my boyfriend had a fun weekend planned for us since we haven’t really seen each other due to work. The day started off with driving up to my dad’s house to see my new puppy! Yes I haven’t written about him so I’ll tell you now. One of my step-mum’s friends has two Bernese Mountain Dogs and they had puppies, one day she brought one home and said it was ours. Yea, I know.

Meet Sully. This is when I first found out about him, my dad picked me up with him. He’s honestly the cutest dog and funny.

This was about three weeks ago.

And this was last weekend. He is definitely getting big.

We spent some time at my dad’s house then around 2 pm my boyfriend and I left to go to Reptilia. My boyfriend has already been to this place but he wanted to take me to go see it. This place was pretty crazy because of how close to the animals you could get. Instead of having to look from far away like at the zoo, the animals were right next to the glass. You will see what I mean in the next couple of photos.

(Picture Above) Alright I know this doesn’t look like very much but there is a Green Anacondas head sticking out of the water. He was pretty cool but the main reason I’m posting this is because….

10384455_10152564445178750_8633697825835962160_n

…this is the body that went with the head. He was massive and scary. The moment I saw him I just thought of getting crushed by his body. Truly scary.

Alright the next picture I’m going to show you will show you what I mean how close you are to the animals. I can’t remember what kind of snake these are but I thought they were pretty cute all curled up together.

They were right up to the glass and didn’t move except for their tongues. This place just gets better and better!

I’m not going to show you all my pictures since I took about 30 of them and I just want to make you guys go see this place if you can. This next picture is one of my favourite pictures and it also shows how close the animals are.

This guy was just chilling under the water sleeping, you could literally sit next to him and he wouldn’t do anything.

Alright, on to one of the best parts and the funniest part of my time being there. I read about this place before I actually went to go see it, I read that there are two gators/crocs that were boyfriend and girlfriend. They are pretty big but the story of when I was there was funny.

10563091_10152564463913750_3058937925531713885_n

(Picture Above) There is a tank just off to the right of this picture that I was looking at then I turned and instantly saw this croc. This is the girlfriend of the two, she was amazing, sitting so still that she looked fake. As I was looking at her I was right up to the glass just looking not knowing there was a massive 14 feet croc right in front of me. I just happened to look down for some reason and saw a huge thick tail right in front of me. I yelled, “HOLY SHIT!” then turned around because I was just like woah. This is what was in front of me.

10473074_10152562263098750_556930946548947823_n

This guy is 14 feet long, he was longer at one point but before the girlfriend was in the tank there use to be a different croc. They apparently didn’t like each other and fought, in this fight he lost some of his tail. I couldn’t even get his whole body in the picture, I think this would scare anyone to see this randomly in front of them with out them knowing. While I yelled holy shit my boyfriend starts laughing his ass off and everyone starts looking at us, my boyfriend told them that I didn’t see him and it scared me once I did. It was pretty funny moment for my boyfriend and I. This was almost the end of the place but it goes into a store where you can buy/see more animals and much more.

I would totally suggest going this this place if you are somewhere near the area, I’ve lived in Brampton my whole life and didn’t know that this place was only 30-40 mins away from me. It’s only $15 dollars to get in so it’s going to kill your pockets.

Feb 14th, 2012

This was the day that my ex boyfriend broke up with me for the hundredth time and made me walk a 30 walk home from the mall. When I got home I was done crying once again after hearing the same words over and over, and of course it was Valentines day. I believe I had to work this day as well, so I worked my shift that ended at 9:30 pm and when I came home my sister came into my room with the phone in hand with my dad on the line. My dad told me that our dog was really sick and that they don’t know if she was going to make it. He told me that I could come up to see her tomorrow if I wanted but I couldn’t because I had to work and finding a cover was really hard, especially last minute.

Feb 15, 2012

So the next day my sister went up to see her and I went to work thinking that I could see her on the weekend. My sister came home and everything was the same as it was the next day so I thought I would be able to see her, but when I came home my sister once again handed me the phone with my dad on the line to tell me this time that our dog Montana had died. I was completely crushed because everyone had gotten to go up to see her to say goodbye at least but I didn’t. Now every year on Feb 15th I put a picture up on facebook, write in my journal “R.I.P Montana,” and cry my eyes out because I miss her so much. 

Feb 15, 2014

My boyfriend called me to just to talk before he went to play video games to tell me sorry that he worked on Valentines day, that I won’t see him until Sunday and he knows the 15th is a hard day for me. I was good until he said that, I held back my  tears until we got off the phone and now I’m crying. I thought I would write this because maybe it would help a little bit but this is going to take a lot of time.

I’m sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye to her, it honestly kills me all the time when people bring her up. I know she’s in a better place, not feeling pain or being sad. I just miss her like crazy. 

R.I.P Montana 
I love you,
I miss you,
and I’m sorry I didn’t say goodbye.
