Another rainy, wet & humid day in Halifax

I was hoping to get out this weekend and go fishing or do something with Cory but it seems we are pretty much limited to getting groceries since the only thing we could do is go for a drive and I’m to unsteady driving in the rain and Cory doesn’t like driving. Not to mention gas is too expensive to waste. So home it is.

Monday is Canada Day! I have to work till 5 but then we are gonna take the bus downtown, take the ferry to Dartmouth and watch the fireworks from there. I haven’t been on the ferry in a while. Plus it’s expensive to park down there and will be hard to find a place to park cause the parking lot will fill up quick. I wish we were with my parents camping, then we’d have our own fireworks.

I need sleep

How many nights can a person to without any sleep? I spent another sleepless night last night. I went to bed around 11. But I was tossing and turning and could not get comfortable, it just hurts all over. There is nothing worse then constantly watching the clock tick down the time till you have to get up in less then an hour and then you finally fall asleep. 2 extra strength ibuprofen and 2 extra strength Tylenol later. Only to be awoken by the cat 5 min before you have to get up. Talk about frustrating.

That’s been my nights for the past few months. After 4-5 nights I finally get one night I sleep but I still wake up feeling tired and sore. I just don’t know how to get to sleep. 9 times outa 10, I get up and come out on the couch (still don’t sleep but at least I’m not disturbing Cory’s sleep as much) or he gets up and comes out on the couch (sometimes cause I keep waking him and sometimes cause he’s in pain himself). How do two people with chronic pain sleep together? King size bed… that’s how. Our queen even isn’t cutting it. READ MORE


Yes, I’m using that word…

I found out two really disappointing things today. I got home from work to find out my internet and cable has been disconnected. We’ve been struggling to pay bills since I first went off work sick. Between the car, the insurance, the cell phones, the rent, food, gas and everything else I had to let the cable, internet and home phone go for a bit. I’m hoping to catch up in a month or two. So in the meantime, I probably won’t be blogging as much. I still plan to get a couple in per week. READ MORE

Posting with speech recognition

I’ve been playing around with my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and found something pretty cool. There’s this app called ListNote that uses Google Voice to turn speech into text. I figured out that after you’re done talking you can share it to the WordPress app. This means that you can speak your whole blog post and it will turn it to text and post it for you. Pretty neat huh? I found this pretty convenient since I find it hard to type with this, it hurts my hands. It also seems to be very accurate.

I’ve got to say I absolutely love this tablet! There’s really only one thing that I think needs improvement on. The screen is not as responsive to touch as it could be. Other than that I’ve got to say it’s a great little tablet. I would definitely give it 4 out of 5 stars. I love the live wallpaper! Right now I have panda eyes follow my finger around the screen. Isn’t that neat? I can’t wait to use it at work tomorrow! READ MORE

Everyone deserves a break


I’ve been wanting a tablet lately but I didn’t know what kind of tablet I wanted until I was in Costco yesterday. I happened to see a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 there for $169.99. I played around with it a bit and was sure that his was what I wanted. Mom said she would give me he money next Friday as an early birthday present, so impatient as I am I bought it early with my own money. I just felt like treating myself and I needed a pick-me-up. I’ve been in such a bad mood lately.
