Endless frustration

So, It’s December! 2013 is almost over. Since I seem to be having a little trouble with inspiration (with the exception of the last 3 days) lately when it comes to posting, I have decided to join BlogHer‘s NaBloPoMo for December. My goal is to post every single day for the whole month of December. Since the weekends are for free-writing, I decided to tackle something that has been on my mind a lot lately. It took me 2 1/2 hours to write this out last night, by 2am I was not quite done so I decided to finish it this morning and proof read it and then wait till I got home before posting it. So here goes…

I’m going to be thirty-four in seven months. Up until recently age has never been something that has really bothered me much. I just skated by feeling like I have all the time in the world. I’ve known since I was about eight years old that I wanted to have kids someday. But it was the furthest thing on my mind. In my teens, I had a little brother who was really young. He was just barely four when I was fifteen. He had lots of little friends and my Mom babysat neighbourhood kids during the day when their parents were at work. I often babysat them after school and in the evening. I have always been around young children and always loved kids. READ MORE

And the car strikes again

Either I need to start taking care of my car more or my car has a vendetta against me… maybe a little bit of both? I now have an air leak in one tire and my drivers door jams and wont close, you slam it and if your not careful it bounces back and hits you in the gut. It’s only 3 years old!

I took my car to Canadian Tire to get it fixed yesterday and walked out without getting it fixed. They wanted change a bunch of parts that didn’t need changing (although the way it is going I am sure they will need to be soon) and wanted to charge me for 3 hours of work cause their “book” says so… A mechanic my dad knows says it shouldn’t take more then an hour and that half the stuff they wanted to “fix” had nothing to do with the fuel system and did not need to be touched.

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. READ MORE
