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 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
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 […]Read More Insomnia and Sleeping Pills
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 […]Read More I’m Not A Touchy-Feely Person
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 […]Read More No One Wants To Talk To Me
