Friday Catch Up

This past week has been continued catch up of school work, with an upswing. I'm unofficially finished 1 of my courses, which leaves 5 more to complete. End date is December 16th, and I'm doing my best to finish before then. It's been long days and nights but I'm doing my best to plough through, so I can have one less weight upon my shoulders. Breathing room, or grieving room, which I can not do right now. I need to finish all of my courses with great marks. Passing, no matter how bad the circumstances, is not good enough for me....more

Kai's Annual Vet Visit

It was about a month late this year, but with good reason. She's healthy, although at the top of what her weight should be, 11 lbs. She didn't need any shots, or blood drawn. Her rabies vaccine is good until 2017. I was happy to find out that the rabies vaccine is the only one required for domestic and international flights. A certificate was provided, although I'm going to bring her passport in, closer to when I leave and have the office fill it out....more

Life Continues

and I wish I could put it on hold. I know that's not possible but that's how I feel. I'm kind of on autopilot right now. I'm trying to catch up with my classes, continue with the sale of the house, and deal with all of the tedious estate things that go along with death. I really can not grieve the way that I need to because I have to stay focused on my classes. If I let go now, I don't know if I'll be able to get back up....more

Broken Heart

I will probably write about this chapter in my life again, here or on another platform. I'm sure over the next several months/years I'll have a lot to share. Here is the first one.On October 19th 2014, my mom lost her battle to cancer. It doesn't make sense. I'm heart broken, sad, empty, and angry. My first love is gone and I don't know what to do with myself, other than take life one hour at a time. I can't even do a day at a time quite yet....more
I am sorry for your loss. One day it will be a bit easier, but for now, do what you can when you ...more

Review of Enoki Mushrooms

(This review is not sponsored.)The company is Enviro Mushroom Farm Inc., out of Burlington, ON, Canada. I was especially drawn to it because it is a product of Canada. USDA Organic, Certified by ECOCERT Canada. This is important to me, so that was a major selling point....more

Friday Wrap-Up

This week has flown by far too quickly. A few extra hours in the day would not be frowned upon. I have been enjoying this warmer weather, but I pretty sure that it's done now.House is up for sale, again. Hoping for a quick & painless sale. The process is annoying and tiring but when I get aggravated and impatient with the process, I have to remember that it's a means to an end....more

First Week of Autumn

and I love it! It's my favourite season and so far it's warmer then normal. The calm before the storm, according this years Almanac. A long, cold Winter is on the way. I'm not complaining because other than moving to somewhere in Southern California or Vegas, there's nothing that I can do about it....more

Fall is Almost Here

The unofficial start of Fall. Kai has graced my bedroom with her presence, for the first time since the end of last Winter. A new/old sleeping buddy. Claps for getting woken up several times during the night....more
