A Story About A Girl

Last weekend of freedom

I go back to work on Monday! I am doing a 6 week return to work program. I can’t believe it has been over 3 months. I start out on week one with 3 3-hour shifts (mon, wed, fri) and then the next week is 5 3-hour shifts, and so on until I am back to full-time. I am happy about that. EI just isn’t cutting it. We are so behind. I even sold $350 worth of gold jewelry this morning to try and catch up and it barely made a dent.

I have been so busy the last couple of weeks with doctors appointments, balance/physio appointments and work related stuff. I also cleaned our apartment from the top to bottom, only took two weeks lol. Well I really only cleaned 3 days out of the two weeks.

We also went camping twice. Once with my parents and some friends of theirs and the second time with Cory’s friend, his fiance and their baby boy. That was fun. I got to hold the baby a lot and even got to put him to bed one night. I want one! They are so cute and cuddly. Maybe soon. [...]  READ MORE

I guess that’s what I get…

for not logging into my blog for over a month. I didn’t even realize that my site was hacked. I think I fixed it but I couldn’t really find much on the internet about it or in the WordPress forums.

It’s been a busy month and I really have no motivation at all to work on my site. I know what it is. It’s the medication I am on, Celexa. It’s caused a complete lack of motivation in everything I normally do. All I want to do is lay around all day and do nothing. It’s not me at all. I stopped taking it. Which I know is not a good idea but we went to my parents for the weekend and I forgot to bring it with us. Then when we got home I forgot to take it for a few days. Then it dawned on me that I was feeling a bit better and wanted to get up and get out of the house and do things.

So it must be the medication. Unfortunately not taking it means my nausea is coming back and the dizziness a bit. Since I am starting work again on the 3rd of June I want to get this all sorted out soon. I am going to talk to my doctor next week to see if there is something else that might help. [...]  READ MORE

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!!! [...]  READ MORE
