Moving on .

I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

Sunday Snippets

Rebel and I were supposed to go to an Alumni Dinner for transplant patients.  Her dinner was even paid by the Heart Institute.  She called me this afternoon and sounded awful.  Flu - upchucking through the night she said.  So far... no other symptoms... but I am a tad freaked... I told her if she felt anything in her breathing to get to the hospital ASAP.   She's living way the hell out past the other end of the city so I can't even get to her all that quickly.  I hope it doesn't turn into any thing else.

I've paid - post dated paid for Scrap and Spa ... first weekend of March.  Yippee.  LOVE my Scrap & Spa annual weekend.

Alouettes won the Grey Cup... whatta Game.. typical Canadian game, it went right to the last two plays.  OMG!!!  The Riders got called for too many men on the field. - HOW does that happen in a championship game?!?!  Als  missed their first field goal attempt at 38 yards,  Riders got the too many men penalty and  The ALs tried again at  33 yards - 28-27  a heartbreaker!   I NEVER thought I could go for an eastern team, but I just can't make myself cheer for the Green Machine.  It's a western thing.   AMAZING game  I might even get an Als t-shirt now. Why not! Until my city has a team I can sneak around on my Bombers.  

My high school is going to have a 50th reunion in 2011.  Right on my birthday and over the May weekend.  I am signing up to go!  I think it will be great fun. Now there's a good reason to work out, deal with the flabby thighs and keep colouring the hair!  botox?  face work?  hmmmmm

XSU has agreed with me - for once - that RJ needs to get the H1N1 shot.  I am going to go this week at some point.

WHY ever did I sign up for the cookie exchange at work?  I am SO NOT good at baking cookies.  I can't roll dough for the life of me.  I did find some easy drop cookies on Epicurious so I am going to have to get on that and hope to goodness I create 3 dozen of something.   The good thing is, I'll get back 3 dozen cookies from those who do bake.  I guess there is some method to my madness.

 Roof is reshingled.  Bank has been semi sorted.  But next go around on my mortgage I am going to shop it around a little more.  As much as they've been good about the financing, the service is not where it should be.  I shouldn't have to be calling every other day to see what's going on with my file.

So... I am offically in reno fatigue.  Bathroom counter tops, fans, paint, changing the outlets and switches, kitchen paint, counter and back splash is just going to have to wait.  I am done with this for now.

Sunday evening.  I think I'll just crawl into my bed with a little glass of something and finish reading my latest book.

Hope that the Rebel is okay and YES, she should get to the hospital ASAP, I've NEVER been that sick in A.Long.Time. it is one nasty bug.

Wasn't that a game? Holy doodle!

I'll email you with my hand the money over lady's information....

I'm contemplating doing my kitchen and going totally broke, hey, what's money when you don't have it?!?

Rebel is not barfing any longer, and managing to keep down some light food. BRAT diet only plus jello. Heart Institute told me if she gets a sore throat and fever to come to hospital ASAP. So far... none of that. Cross my fingers. She threw up three of her pills - found them in the sink, washed them off and swallowed them again. gotta love it!

Got yr email Lily. Thanks. Kitchen "refreshing" is on my list for after Christmas once I get back all my rebate cheques. New counters, back splash, paint and door pulls.

Go glad to hear that Rebel is feeling a bit better. Poor girl. Hoping and praying she kicks this fast.

Take photos of your cookies. We wanna see.

Excellent that the roof is finished. Now you have one less thing to worry about as winter sets in.

I love Sunday Snippets. Very cute.

love and hugs,
