With Change Comes Happiness

Another birthday come and gone, and this one was one I will remember.  This past year has had it’s ups and downs, but it has been, by far, the best one I’ve had in ages.  I celebrated my birthday three times this year.  The first was a family afair, which took place on Thanksgiving day…

Who Did I Call?

Holy Crap I’m tired.  It’s been a long, productive work week, and I’m beat.  I made it through the whole week without wine — pat on the back.  To reward myself for this accomplishment, I will cut my workout short, put on my PJs, and savour a couple glasses of my favorite vino.  Do my…

Babble Babble Babble, Wine, RHyme

100 bottles of wine on the wall, 100 bottles of wine….. what I wouldn’t give to have that wall.  WINE!  I love wine!  I am a self-professed wineaholic.   Perhaps my European heritage is to blame for this.  A love for wine most definitely could be genetic; at least that’s what I’m going to keep…

Doctor, Doctor… Give me the News

  It’s Doctor Day!  For the past few months, I’ve spoke little to nothing about my anxiety. Why or why?  Because I haven’t felt anxious.  Back in April, I decided to go back on meds.  It was a really hard decision to make, but in the end, it was the right one.  It took a…

What Tired Looks Like

Dear Brain: It has come to my attention that you once again called in sick.  This has become an increasingly frequent occurance, and we need to talk about it.  First, I want to state that I know your role is demanding, and I can understand you wanting some time off.  However, when you do not…

A Treasured Gift

One must be kind to a gentle heart; For it feels more than it’s counterpart. Nothing compares to it’s undying love; The sweetest kiss; pure as a dove. So please beware and understand; It can shatter when placed in careless hands. And if the broken heart never mends; The love it shared comes to an…

Good-Bye Is Never Easy

Letting go has always been hard for me.  I usually know for some time that it’s time to move on, yet I hold on waiting to see if I’m wrong.  I don’t know why I haven’t learned to listen to my gutt.  It’s always the same; in the end, I wonder why I didn’t do…

My Life Transformed

Sadly, I have neglected my blog over the past couple of months with only random posts from time to time.  I started this blog over a year ago, and since that time, I’ve created some positive change in my life.  Slowly, I’ve crawled my way out of a very stagnant time in my life, and…

What a World We Live In — Junkified

There is nothing better than receiving an unasked for Dick PIC on a beautiful Friday morning.  Seriously, what has this world come to.  You can’t even have a drink with a man without him assuming that’s code for “please send me a picture of your flaccid penis.” Maybe I’m getting old, but is this really…

Firestorm

My view of the world is full of smoke and ashes.  The wildfires in BC have full cities evacuated, and over 40,000 of them have come to our city for refuge.  The air is thick with smoke, and everyone is feeling the stress of the situation.  I haven’t written in over a week because I’ve…

Smoke On The Water — AND Everywhere Else

The whole province is on fire, and we are living in the land of smoke and ash.  Thousands of people from cities all across British Columbia have been evacuated from their homes due to 100s of out of control wildfires.  High winds blow smoke and ash through the valley, and it’s near impossible to breathe…

False Hopes and Face Cream

It’s amazing the amount of money women spend on beauty products to make themselves feel pretty.  For me, it’s all about my hair.  I have very fine, curly hair, and it’s been greying for years.  I spend approximately $800 per year on colour and cut, and who knows how much on products to keep it…
