It’s a cute kitten kind of a day! Why? Because I just need to look at their sweet faces. Actually, we are getting a kitten in about 5-6 weeks. Two little orange ones we are naming Mango and Marmalade! These are not them by the way. Just two cuties I found on Unsplash. I don’t have any pictures of the ones we are getting yet. We are taking Marmalade and Mom and Dad are taking Mango, as long as Max does alright with Marmalade, if not Mom and Dad are taking both but one is still ours.
I guess it doesn’t really matter in the long run because we are actually moving sometime within the next couple of months into the house they are in sort of with them. I say sort of because they have a trailer behind the house that they want to stay in, it has heat, a/c, a full washroom, kitchenette, etc. It’s a camper trailer, not a mobile home, but the plan is for them to eventually start travelling Canada and the US with it and only being here a couple of months in the summer and staying on the property with it down by the pool where it is now.
It may be a year or more before we get there though, one because of COVID-19 and two because they both need surgery. Which is why we are moving there. Dad needs surgery on his back, he has a few problems including a couple of herniated disks. Denton will be moving into the cottage on his own (fingers crossed) and we will be moving into the old house, the “haunted” one, which should be interesting. We are moving into the master bedroom, there will be a spare room which we hope will be used soon enough for a foster child, which we will start the process for once we are moved in and things are settled down a bit and then the 3rd bedroom will be a spare for Mom and Dad or Denton in case they need to sleep in the house.
Dad can’t use the upstairs at all so they have not been sleeping up there, which is why they were initially out in the camper, they love it though so they want to stay there even over the winter. We will just have to see how it goes. I am both excited and somewhat scared it won’t work out well. It’s important though to try and get my brother out of there and into his own place because they can’t handle him anymore, but I am not going to get into that at the moment, maybe later.
In other news, I have been experiencing some major fatigue, like completely debilitating fatigue. I am having the hardest time sometimes just sitting up on the couch. I’ve had issues with fatigue before, but nothing like this. I am struggling with everything at the moment. Mentally wise, not so much. I am actually okay. Maybe a bit stressed and slightly anxious but, no depression. I am not sure if the fatigue is from being in the pool so much. I am in there a few hours every other day. This started before the pool was up though and I have just been fighting it for a long time as it gets worse.
I start school at the beginning of September again so this should be interesting considering I will need to be in Halifax (a 2 1/2 hour drive) for 2 days a week. I am just going to have to power through. I am absolutely determined to make this work despite all the setbacks. I have been doing my best to just keep occupied and deal with the pain, fatigue, headaches, dizziness and nausea(and more) that has been going on forever and has just gotten worse since COVID-19 started (of course when I can not get in to physically see a doctor). At least now I can get in for certain things if needed, so I am going to try and get in and see him as soon as I can.
In the meantime, I am just puttering around waiting for things to happen. There was no point getting a job for a month as I won’t be able to continue it if I am in Halifax two days a week (weekdays at that) and home the rest of the time. I still have a bit left over from my last student loan so I am just making it last as long as I can while I wait for the next (new?) loan on September 5th. Oh, and I have been designing some stickers for my Redbubble store.
I’ve always liked to draw and doodle so I am teaching myself how to doodle digitally on my tablet. The designs are also available on a lot of other merchandise as well. So if you’d like to support me and help me keep Life With Kadie (and this blog) going this is a great way to do it. Right now I just have the four doodles but I plan to make a few more today. Hopefully, I will improve some as I go. Pen control on the tablet I have seems so different from pen on paper, at least to me it does, am I the only one that thinks this? I am completely new to drawing digitally and don’t have the best equipment but wanted to try with what I have before I commit to anything more expensive.
