Closure and Finish Chip!

Friday, August 31, 2012

Good Evening All!

First off I hope you all are enjoying the long weekend and that the weather is good for you all. IT is for me here.

I was able to get a good night's sleep last night, about 7 hours which is a lot more than what I normally get.

So I got up at my usual time and did a short walking workout while waiting for the coffee maker to finish perking.

I then sat down to log on only to find that the computer system was down. I had no internet service and then I found out that I had no phone service. The entire networking system was down city wide and Shaw was working very hard to get everything working again. After an hour and a half the computer started to work and then we got our phone to work. Good thing that I have my cell phone to call shaw and report the problem that they knew about.

I am so glad it was only down for a short time and I was able to get my sparking and phone calls done.

I had some very important phone calls to make.

One was to the Pension Office and to find out why mom's pension checks haven't been deposit in two months. It seems that I forgot to call them and tell them mom's change of address and I also was informed that they can't make the change because I am not recorded as mom's POA.

UGH! UGH! UGH! I wished someone told me, all of this would have been done.

The second phone call was to the Tax Office to find out about mom's taxes, again they didn't get the notice of POA or the change of address. I told them that the Office where I did my taxes and my mom's faxed over all the paper work and the POA. He put my on hold and finally located the fax and informed me that I was accepted as mom's POA and that they are just now going over the reports and that I should get a notice in the mail soon regarding mom's taxes and the GST Rebate!

One good thing about this phone call is that the Taxation Department has allowed me to put mom's down as a Disability Dependent or something. This will help me with my taxes next year I hope.

After being on the phone with these two agencies and pacing up and down, burning up this pent up anger I figured that I did a lot of walking. Still don't have a pedometer and soon I am hoping to buy one for cheap.

Then it was lunch time and I was not hungry at all, so I made myself a cup of tea first and sat down to crochet until Leigh calls me. (my ex boy-friend).

We are getting together so that I can get my cell phone transferred into my name since he had been paying the bills for it these past four years or so. It is a good business write off for him since I still did some of her paper work and my payment for doing the work was the cell phone.

We did get together and now the cell phone is him my name. I am very happy about this and the cell bill is only going to cost me $24.50 a month.

I also gave him back some of the stuff that belong to him and I got back some of my stuff as well. There are still a few things left at his place that belongs to me and I will get them back soon.

We are still going to be friends just not in a romantic why. We had a good long talk and closure was made. I feel good about this and I have no regrets and he doesn't either.

I think now I will sleep even better and maybe my weight will go down as well as the stresses in my life.

I am still trying to figure out about mom and POA. If I missed calling a person about mom. I have made a list and everyone I can think of has been notified except for mom's dentist and eye doctor. They provide them at the Care Home.

After Leigh left I made dinner for John and I, Cheese burgers and baked fries. While that was being baked I finished a second Chip, the first one came out perfect,very cute. The second one that I finished tonight turned out to be a tad bit bigger and still just as cute. I am now making a third one for my Co-worker's Daughter as a gift.

Then when I go to work tomorrow I will pick up the right yarn colour for Dale and start on him.

In fact I can't sell Chip n Dale cause of the Disney Copy write laws but I can give them away as gifts if someone make a donation or is will to pay extra for shipping fees.

So I guess the next thing to do is to show CHIP to you all!

This is the first one that I made.

This is the second one, just a little bit bigger

So that's my day and evening. Tomorrow I go back to work and I work a full shift, 9-5pm. Sunday and Monday I am off.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of this great weekend, Hugs to all, Prayer for all.

    Sorry about your frustrations with bureaucracy, it is difficult as they are all bogged down by government red tape! I am glad you and your friend worked things out, that is stressful to! You said you are lucky to get six hours of sleep, I would love to see you get more since it is so important for your health! Keep up the good work with your creative knitting.

    Sounds like the bumps in your road are manageable, that is good. If we didn't have bumps we wouldn't appreciate the smooth times. But why do we have to have so very many bumps compared to the smooth? an age old question.

    I'm so glad things are going well for you. :) The poa thing is a real pain, I went through a little of it with my dad, but just made sure that everyone who needs to know got a copy of my papers, that's the hard part.

    Your chipmunk is adorable. A donation is great, good way to do it! :) Love you! HUGS!

    So glad you have had an amiable parting with Leigh and that you will remain friends. Its good you made a list of who needed to be told of your POA with your Mom! That is interesting you are being given a disability deduction dependent for your Mom as I thought they had to be actually living with you under your care before you got that. That will be a bomus!
    The clouds and much colder weather have moved in here now. We only have a high of 16 and thundershowers later and rain on Sunday. We usually have a tradition of bad weather for the long weekend. Hope it doesn't interfere with the fireworks tonight, but as I enjoyed the ones last night I won't bother going a second time. Not worth freezing and getting wet!!
    So glad you slept well, hope the rest of your weekend is restful!
    Great work on Chip N Dale!! Just fantastic!! Love seeing what you can do!!

    I'm glad that you and Leigh finally resolved everything.
    Now you can move on. Sorry to hear that you are still
    having problems with your mum's affairs. I hope it all
    gets sorted out soon. Your Chip looks fantastic.
    Take care and have a great weekend. emoticon

    Chip is adorable! And I'm glad you were able to find some closure with your ex; that's by far the healthiest way to end things (if you can).

    I hope your day goes well.

    Hello there, sorry I have not been getting notifications on my e-mail! Been busy and and have a week off so am hoping to catch up with everyone!

    Sounds like you are still having major issues with dealing with your mother's financials. Very hard to keep track of who and what you have called.
