I was raised Christian. When I was a child my parents would church hop every few weeks. I have been to Catholic services, United services, Anglican services, you name a denomination and I’ve probably been to at least one service. We eventually settled at a Community Church which we still attend and love. However, when […]Read More Back to Basics
The last time I posted on this site was in 2013 just after my Sweety was allowed to return home after his transplant. In 6 weeks it will be his 3rd year anniversary from his transplant which is amazing. It has taken a lot of work to get to this point, especially since it took […]Read More It’s Been A Long Time
Today Sweety and I had two people come to our door from Just Energy. They came several hours apart and the first time I was the one that answered the door. I thought it was a bit strange that they were asking to see my energy bill to find out if I had “rate protection”. […]Read More Why Does “Just Energy” Need To See My Bill?
Today I woke up with a migraine. It wasn’t the worst migraine I’ve ever had but it was a bit worse than my normal ones. The throbbing in my head was made worse by the fact that our house has blinds that do nothing to block out the light. As well, the cats decided that […]Read More Migraines and the Inability to Block Out Light
Today I spent all day cuddling with the kitties in bed. Sweety was with his father who is visiting from BC until tomorrow evening which left me free to read in bed. There were a few times when I was left unable to turn a page because my arm was taken over by one of […]Read More Kitty Cuddles
Today my OCD was getting the best of me in a strange way. I was panicking over the state of all the plastic bags we have collected in the house. We don’t have a bag holder and Sweety was just tossing the loose bags under the sink. Not only were the bags taking up a […]Read More Folding Bags
I had been planning on getting Sweety a cat for his birthday and on Friday I went to the SPCA and Alberta Animal Services to look at cats while Sweety was getting a transfusion of red cells. Unfortunately, I cannot go to those places without wanting to bring home all of the cats. Therefore, when […]Read More Kitties!
Last week Sweety’s family really came though for us. Sweety’s mother is moving in with her boyfriend and they are giving us their extra furniture so that they don’t have to put it in storage. While it is kind of a selfish reason for giving us the furniture, I am not going to say no […]Read More The Furniture Fairies
Sweety has decided that since we have come back home, he will take over the kitchen and finances. I’m thinking that he’s feeling rather useless because he can’t go back to work for another year. He even went so far as to hide the grocery list from me the other day so that I wouldn’t […]Read More Sweety Takes Charge
It’s been over a month since my last post but I am still around. Unfortunately my plan to schedule posts when I had internet access went south. When I was able to get internet access, I had more important things to do such as keep contact with family and pay bills. At the moment, we […]Read More Still Kicking
