Visit with Josie!

I went to see my baby cousin Josie or Jojo today, she is the most beautiful baby I've ever seen. She had dark hair and the same dark blue eyes that I had as a baby.
She has a bit of a rash, but that should clear up soon. You have no idea how much I am going to worship that little girl. All I wanted to do was to hold her close to me and never let her go.

I also got to see my auntie as well. She is doing really well too, her swelling is going down considerably and she isn't in a whole lot of discomfort which is great for just having had a C-section on Monday of this week.

Tomorrow I will shoot her a text message and ask if I can post a picture of the cute little darling on my blog for everyone else to see. I have a feeling I will be visiting family as much as humanly possible. With summer coming I'll be around a lot anyways, especially at the cottage. I assume Josie will be up there with my Auntie since she has a year off for her maternity leave.

In other news I got all my laundry done today, thank goodness for Mums right?! She always complains a little bit but I think she misses doing my laundry just a little bit. Either that or she is afraid I'm going to mess up her washing machine, which is entirely possible. I never was very good with household appliances.

I also managed to get the rest of my photo's that I wanted to put on facebook uploaded. I have managed to clear out a lot of space on my computer from old videos and stuff I didn't need anymore. It's nice to have a little bit more room to work with until I get an external hard drive.

In other news, I'm booking my vacation to Ottawa with my next cheque. I am really excited! I am hopefully going to be checking out the city and seeing what everything in about. Trying out the transit system as well. I am hoping that for next spring I get into Carlton University for there nursing program. However, that means that I have to start doing my online courses pretty soon through Fleming. That just means I need to get my internet up and running at my apartment.

Anymawho, time to chill out for a little while... leave me a comment or something ;)

Old Photo's

Long ago my Papa Jim was driving down the highway when a drunk driver collided with his car. He survived and spent many months recovering. They took some pictures of him being removed from his decimated car.


My Daddy found some old coins, I figured a few shots would be interesting! Enjoy!

Help me raise awareness for DDD

I just wanted everyone to take a look at the article in the Trentonian, my friend Barb suffered with Degenerative Disk Disease and is looking to spread awareness and educate people on this debilitating disease.

I love my Barb and she is a wonderful person who does not deserve to feel any pain, but she is a tough cookie and is always helping others! I know more than one person who has DDD and I would love to see awareness spread about it so more people can help fight this painful disease.

You can view Barb's article Here! and you can join her group on facebook!.

If you can help her raise awareness, I'm sure she would love the support.


Blogging infinitely!

Please Help Me Support The Heart & Stroke Foundation

Hey Everyone!

This year I am participating in the Heart&Stroke Big Bike to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Heart disease and stroke take 1 in 3 Canadians before their time.

Together, we can help improve this statistic.

$100 can teach three classrooms of children the foundation for heart-healthy living with the HeartSmart Kids program.

$500 can administer an AED training course that can save lives.

$1,000 can equip a doctor with a blood pressure monitor to help keep patients healthy.

$4,000 can equip a community with an AED, which can increase heart attack survival rates dramatically.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal by sponsoring me online. Click on the link below to make a secure online credit card donation.

The donations we collect will help us to continue to fund live-giving research so that all Canadians can live longer, fuller, lives.

Thanks for your support!

Fear & Loathing by Moira, Darling

Check out Moira, Darling's newest song and video Fear & Loathing!

This is a pretty sick video and I'm hoping that this blows up and gets some serious views for them. The solo towards the end is amazing and the camera work is great! I'm so proud of these guys and the music they make!

Check the rest of their stuff out on Facebook

Apartment & Happenings!

Just wanted to update everyone on my apartment situation. It is getting better. The conditions are definitely not what I would like to live in but it is getting mildly better.

The landlord's sons came by last weekend and started doing some work. They determined the mold was from condensation gathering in the apartment and they sprayed eco/pet friendly mold killer to kill the mold and spores, removed the chipped paint and are repainting the ceiling. They also got the sink fixed by replacing the pipes underneath and the whole faucet. It looks a lot nicer and is much easier to manage now. I couldn't be more pleased with the fact that I can do dishes in my apartment now without constantly wiping up my counter and needing a mop bucket under the sink.

We did have a mild issue with the hot water, but it turned out someones child was running amok through the building and turned down the heaters... I tell you, it was a very chilly morning shower to start my week. I was not pleased at the situation.

I also was not pleased that they showed up a day late and then bitched that the apartment was not pristine. I mean there was maybe a couple pairs of shoes on the floor and a few things out of place but everything was tidy and pretty much put away. I had even swept and mopped the entire place and washed down the walls, I even managed to put away almost all the dishes into their proper cupboard! (Which, by the way,no small feat in my home!)

Oh and did you know apparently cat shit is supposed to smell like flowers and fresh linen, because they were having a fit that they could smell the litter boxes when they were standing right beside them. If they think there is a better way to deal with 4 cats, they can let me know, but I think the fact that my whole home doesn't smell like a crazy cat lady's home is a miracle. My animals are kept happy and healthy and I told them to feel free to bring in animal services if they wanted because my animals are well kept and loved. I don't think you will find a more affectionate brood of cats and a more well feed clan of sugar butts. None of them are sick, malnourished or hurt. No one has even complained, nor could the landlords tell how many animals I had until they asked and were shocked at the number because "There is no way you could have that many in here and have it look like this!"

In other news, still no baby cousin as of yet. Twice now my aunt was supposed to be induced but they stupid hospital screwed up. Hopefully it happens for her on Monday, my aunt seems to be getting fed up of being pregnant. I have to admit the suspense is killing me! I am looking forward to meeting my baby cousin!

That's all I got for now, I'll probably give you some new tidbit later!

Camera Shenanigans

So as you know I got a new camera for Christmas and lately I've been playing with it to take some interesting pictures. I got some really neat ones that I would love to share with everyone =) Check 'em out.
