So my phone died this weekend when I was on vacation, but it really was a very good thing! You see, I am a closet techno-gadget whore. I fully admit it. And I love to shop... food and finances are things I knowingly abuse. Bear this in mind a... Read more

Hi y'all. Just a quick note to update you on all the stuff that has gone on since the last time I posted (June 13th seems like forever ago...) I did the triathlon on the 27th - I finished it in 1 hour 40 secs - the run kicked my ass - I accide... Read more

Wow, I have been away a little while and I sure have missed SP. The residency program rocks - a lot of new stuff and it is really challenging, but not beyond me. The house is getting there, we have had the AC go out 3 times since we moved in, ... Read more

It is with much sadness I share with you the news of the passing of my mum Bev - her battle with cancer ended this evening. She died peacefully at home as she had wished. It is a great loss for all who she touched. Read more

I don't know how it happened, but...

I am two pounds lighter this AM than I was last Wednesday. I have been doing a lot of things that do not lead to successful weight loss, so I am not looking on this as the best way to live a healthy life, but it was a little morale boost to hav... Read more

I nearly lost my mind last night after my idiot oldest brother texts me "I went to the Drs with Dad today. he is exhausted according to the dr." The only appointment I was aware of was the Palliative Care appointment for Mum, so why is the fo... Read more

I'm back from saying good bye to my mum. I won't be able to be there when she dies (which will be likely the end of the month), so I made the most of the time we had together, and I think I left her in better shape when I left than when I got t... Read more

I am so glad DH and I are leaving tomorrow to see my mum - she is really starting to fade away. She is sleeping far more, eating far less, but seems comfortable when I talk to her. My gut tells me the end is soon - before the end of this month... Read more

I hate waiting for the weight to come off, for cheques to come in the mail, for my Green Card, and all the other things that tax my patience, but today, I am waiting for HR to get the paperwork done for my new job, and we are coming down to the ... Read more

This was the reaction both my DH and I had when we got our credit score yesterday (part of the application process for renting a house here involves a credit check, but not a criminal background check - they seem to take your word for behaving y... Read more

My inner whiner has been working overtime this week keeping me from getting a little cardio in - soccer had a bye on Sunday and got cancelled on Monday, did I go tot the gym? No... Tuesday, did I go to the gym, or even walk in the sun? No.... ... Read more
