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.

Since its literally scratches and with the other scratches it seems silly to fix it, I asked if I could just settle for cash instead and they said yes! They are giving me a cheque for $692.90 and I don’t need to use it to get the car fixed! It’s mine to keep and use for whatever!!!

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

New theme

There now I finally have a theme that I am happy with! I’m hoping to leave it up at least a month and maybe work on a few more themes that I can chose from later if I want. A theme a month maybe or a theme a season. Something like that.

In the meantime this theme is available for download on the themes page… Yay.

More things to think about

I’ve pretty much been sick all day again today. I talked to one of my coaches at work, didn’t even recognize her at first even though she is one of my favorite people in the world. She wanted to update the project manager on how long to expect me to be out. Since I am not really sure I pretty much said that. But we figured it will take a month or so to get into the ENT so like a month or two.

That’s kinda concerning money wise. EI pays you next to nothing (like 55% or something). So now I need to add that stress onto everything else. Cory gets paid good but it is not fair for him to take on what I can not pay for. And besides even if he tried it would still not be enough. Not sure what we’re gonna do there. I have tried to figure out what we could do without and we can’t really cut back much more. It’s kinda frustrating. I’ve never been very good at finances.

I was thinking about getting rid of TV but I need to chat more with Cory about it. I hate bringing stuff like that up though. Part of me figures I can just wait it out and try and get back to work ASAP but I have to face the fact that before I went on the leave of absence things were so slow they were offering voluntary leave early or VLE everyday and were letting lots of people leave early. From what I’m told it’s no better now. In the past I have always lucked out and been able to work on other projects but I doubt that would happen just after coming back from a leave of absence.

I Need Something To Do

I’ve already started a new theme. This one is cute and I love the colors but there is a lot of mistakes in it (mostly hidden mistakes in the html and stuff… but I just don’t completely like it. I remember when I had this domain before that I would sometimes go months without changing my theme then other times I would have 3 themes in one week. I have the new one all mocked up in Photoshop and I have it half coded in HTML5. I just need to finish coding it and then code it into a WordPress theme.  I like the colors in it too. All shades of blue/grey.

Sunday overnight I had a really bad night and was up all night not able to sleep. I was literally laying in bed feeling like I was in the cabin of a ship (and I have been on a ship before in rocky seas). I just felt a constant “rolling” sensation and tilting sensation, and I felt constantly like throwing up. My ears have been “fluttering” on and off – like water rolling around in there – for days now. On top of that my legs hurt (no idea why).
