  • What a pain in the @$$

    Sometime over the last few days my site got hacked along with another site I host. It’s so frustrating, this is the second time for me, last time I just said the hell with it and started over, I think I moved hosts at that time to and just completely started over. With the help of Erin Nicole and Ofblue Hosting everything is back up and running. Thank you guys so much!

    I lost my posts between New Years Day and the last one I posted last week sometime and all my image files. Which really sucks but it could have been worse. I decided not to use the same theme again. I think that is how they hacked the site. I am using a temporary one I downloaded from the WordPress themes database which I kinda like. Might keep it for a bit, or it might be changed tomorrow. Who knows! [...]

  • 3 more days…

    Until December! It’s my favorite month besides July (summer and Birthday gifts, nothing can beat that!), I love the festive lights, the snow, candy cane hot chocolate , cinnamon, peppermint, holly and the smell of a fresh christmas tree!

    I decorated my blog before I decorated the apartment. I couldn’t help it. I was looking for some inspiration and found this free theme and I love it! I figured I couldn’t have done better myself right now so why bother. Plus it features an adorable snowman. I love snowmen! I also added a math captcha, I was tired of sorting through the spam akismet stopped for the occasional legit comments that it caught.

    I’m heading home to Mom and Dad’s tomorrow. I would have left today, since I have a 4 day weekend (Thursday,  Friday,  Saturday and Sunday) but I have to do a sleep test tonight and bring the thing back tomorrow morning. I’ve always had issues sleeping but since I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia my Doctor(s) have been concerned with my sleep and the fact I wake up as tired as when I go to bed. So I’m leaving tomorrow. [...]

  • Where did November go?

    Wow it’s almost over already. I can’t wait to put up our Christmas tree soon. I wanted to do it this weekend but I am going to visit my parents for American Thanksgiving. Odd I know. No one in my family is American (not immediate family anyways).  However our client at work deals with mostly US citizens and because of that made the decision to close our phone lines over American Thanksgiving . For those of you that do not know Canadian Thanksgiving  was Monday October 14th this year, it’s always the second Monday in October… Just a little Canadian tidbit  So anyways I guess I will have to wait till the week or the next weekend to put it up.

    November really did go by fast, I spent half of it sick and at home so I suppose that’s partly why. I was doing so good in September and October money wise and got so much paid off. My last pay check was a measly $77 lol. Oh well. I saved $100 from the one before and got the bills paid for the month and Cory kinda picked up the rest. It’s gonna be a struggle to get Christmas shopping done. It’s times like this I wish I was more pro-active and had most of it done already. But I am such a procrastinator when it comes to Christmas shopping. I have always been one to wait and then rush the week before Christmas to get it all done on a limited budget. If I planned it better I would not feel so stressed about it. Every year I say I am going to start early and never do. [...]

  • A ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day

    I don’t usually like using my iphone to write but since my site is down and I want to blog now I really don’t have much of a choice. This is one of the reasons I am just trying my host before I purchase anything. Just because the price is right doesn’t mean much. So we’ll just see.

    Anyways, I love good news! A few weeks ago a woman bumped, and I literally mean bumped into my car in the parking lot of my building. Just some scratches on my bumper. I was upset but whatever… My car’s been hit before and I hit something [someone] once. So it’s by far not the first scratch on my car (I drive a 2008 Cobalt Lt), but still I’ve just had nothing but bad luck. Including a 3x hike in my insurance. So anyway, I got a call from the insurance company saying the estimate is for about $1300. [...]

  • Happy Easter!

    I changed the font to one called Andika Basic. Thanks Erica for letting me know it was hard to read. I tested it in Chrome, IE and Opera on my computer and it looked good but then when I downloaded Firefox it looked really hard to read Oh well I like Andika Basic better anyways.

    We went out for supper last night with Cory’s parents, his sister and her boyfriend to SunnySide Restaurant in bedford for Easter. It was pretty good! I had Newfie Steak and Eggs (they serve breakfast all day) which is fried bologna (yummy!) and eggs, in this case scrambled eggs. I never took a picture but I think I am going to start doing that when we eat out. I really enjoyed the food and the company.

    Poor Cory was stuck having french onion soup lol. Everytime feed came to the table he would grumble how hungry he was and how good it looked. Since he seems to be feeling better tonight I was going to make a scalloped potato with ham but he says he wants to wait till tomorrow, just in case. So instead tonight he is having chicken wings… yup, that’s much better [...]
