Back to Basics

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 […]

Folding Bags

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 […]

Kitties!

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 […]

Sweety Takes Charge

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 […]

Insomnia and Sleeping Pills

Over the last few days I have been trying some new sleeping pills in an attempt to overcome my insomnia. Unfortunately the pills I took yesterday didn’t help me fall asleep like they were supposed to. Instead, they helped me stay asleep. I took the first pill at about 9:30pm and by midnight I was […]

I’m Not A Touchy-Feely Person

Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like being touched by people I don’t know or trust. For me a simple handshake can set my tension level high for the rest of the day. I have even been known to have violent reactions when people get too close without warning. And I am perfectly […]

No One Wants To Talk To Me

As much as I am grateful for all of the help that Sweety and I are getting from the government in terms of finances, I am frustrated with how difficult the last week has been. Sweety gets disability from the government because of his transplant. This is great because the disability allows us to pay […]

My Car Is Registered

In order for me to register my car I needed to get the inspection done. Unfortunately my car was not able to pass inspection because it had several parts that needed replacing (one of which was a brake cable and I hear that those are kind of important). To add to this, the parts are rather […]

Yoga

When I was a child, Mom taught me yoga. I remember that she had this old book from the 70’s that had pictures of different yoga postures. We had a foam mat that Mom would place on the ground for us to use and we would do simple poses. Then, when I was in elementary […]
