So I had this “friend” Part One….

I usually have really good judgement on reading people when I first meet them. The key word here is “usually”.

When I first moved up here I made friends with a few girls at work pretty quickly. One of them declared that we were going to be besties because of my sarcastic and witty attitude. I must modestly say I am a pretty funny girl.


So this “new friend” and I hung out a few times outside of work and I learned a few things about her. One was that she at one time was a drug addict and was still weekly visiting the methadone clinic. Ok, I thought as long as she’s not doing it anymore and she’s working hard on changing her life.Give her a chance. She also liked her drinks and I thought hey, when she’s not at work she’s free to do what she wants with her own time, she’s a big girl.

This new friend is a single mom and has 2 children. One a boy in his early 20’s who she was proud of because he was working full time as a skilled laborer. And she has a beautiful girl who had just started high school and was excelling with great grades.

I also have another friend who we will call “friend #2”, and on one hot summer afternoon I ran into her outside of the Legion where there was some kind of festival was going on with a band playing. She invited me to sit with her and her daughter to enjoy the music and have a few cold beers.

So a few hours later and a few beers later, friend #2, who was and born and raised here, told me some stuff about friend #1 who also was born and raised here.

She confirmed the rumor about the drug activity, but was happy to say that yes friend #1 had worked very hard to get her life in order. Which included working her way up to the full-time position which if I may say is a very hard thing to get in this small town. Friend #2 also told me that friend #1 was going to receive a pretty big inheritance from her grandmother who had recently passed away and friend #1 was planning to buy her first home!

Wow, I thought this girl friend #1 had really worked hard and changed her life I thought. Good for her!

So, when friend #1 asked me to go with her to help her arrange for her first mortgage at the local bank I was honored and quite pleased. Have I mentioned that in the past I worked as a Real Estate Agent?  If not, well yes I did, but that’s a whole other story.

What happened at the bank should have been my first clue………..


Coming soon Part 2….


Holy Crap!!!!!……….

It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve posted here. It’s not like nothing’s been going on there has been ALOT going on in my life.

Don’t worry, I’m still single not going done THAT road again.

Big C had a big down fall mentally and physically so I’ve been mostly focusing on her getting diagnosed and well again.

Basically she ended up again in the hospital a few times but we have FINALLY gotten a diagnosis she has Fibromyalgia. After many doctor’s, psychiatrists, counsellor, dietician’s we have a diagnosis and a treatment plan!

She is on permanent ODSP which is disability and just recently she did a Skype call with a Dr. in Ottawa who has prescribed her marijuana to manage her pain.

As the result of her fibromyalgia she lost almost 50 pounds drastically and we couldn’t figure out why. She also has, IBS irritable bowel syndrome,, and the depression and anxiety. This is all tied in together with the Fibro.

Anyways she’s on the right track physically and mentally now and GET THIS she has a BOYFRIEND NOW!!!

We will call him Mr. C.  He seems like a nice guy, treats her well all he needs to do now is to get a j.o.b.

Then I will like him even more.

We are still living in the Great White North and I’m still at the same job. And now that Big C has a life and is not home as much I now will have to find some stuff to do for myself now or I may end up staying home and be a “raging alcoholic” lol,,,, This does have a story to it and one day soon I will tell you about it. Let’s just say I work with some prreeetttyy weird people and there is some prreeettyy weird individuals that live in this small town.

Oh and we have a few more furry friends added to our family:


Kipper                          and                               Lola


Ya ya there are certainly a handful but they are worth it!

So let me know of any ideas of some hobbies I should look into,,,,give me all you got!


The World’s Best Looking Prime Minister!


You know you live in a small town when……….

I call into my local Radio Station ( which is called  97.7 The Moose ) and play the morning game and Win on the first try! And the prize is a free refill of propane for the bbq tank that I do NOT own, lol, guess mom and dad will reap my winning benefits and I win by getting a bbq dinner. Haha,,win, win.

So our radio station is named after a Moose


It’s also our only option of radio programming, good thing they play mostly what I like 80’s and 90’s music. Unfortunately, I now have no idea what’s on the top ten. Oh wait there is another option,,

The Christian Rock Channel


I know this because sometimes the Moose goes off the air,,and I am forced to listen to this channel, many a early morning I have woken up to my alarm and there is a sermon going full swing on my radio,,,,,,sigh.

Oh wait there’s more,,, so we have radio stations named after our wildlife I know what you are thinking, how much more cra cra can you all get up in there in the Great White North,,,,Oh it gets even better,,,guess what our local bus company is called?

The Trout!trout2

Awww lawd what have I done with my life?!

The winning song was this one by the way, have a great day all!                                                       

It’s November you know what that means………!!!


I don’t want to hear anyone complaining that I should wait until after Remembrance Day to decorate, because I’m not going too. My decorating my apartment to make me happy in no way takes away my respect for our Veteran’s.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about a group that I have set up on Facebook for a Christmas Card Exchange, everyone loves to get Christmas cards, and because of the internet this past time is slowly disappearing. Let’s not let this happen people!!

Please sign in to your facebook and join my group!

Life is good!

Time to have a feel good post!

Since moving up to Bancroft, I have reduced my rent by $300 a month which has freed up more funds.

This week I was able to update our crappy old television to this baby!

RCA 42 incher of course big C has been playing Playstation non stop since Sunday!

By moving north we also reduced our cable and internet fee’s, for the same amount we paid in the city we now get all the cool channels, unlimited internet (gotta have that so Big C can talk to her lil lady overseas) and a home phone! We went without a phone for almost 2yrs before.

I also have a job that keeps me really busy and I have progressed from a measly 24 hrs a week to a average of 37 hours a week, not too bad for just starting over just 2 months ago. I also have now been trained on not just my hired position, but also on pricing and signing!

In August I will finally be able to start putting money away for my retirement, AND hopefully to be able to go on a trip south sometime during the winter 🙂

Big C is doing really well. She now has a job she really enjoys and her anxiety and depression seems to have disappeared for the time being. She’s making friends and enjoying the freedom of spending her hard earned money on things she wants. I’m giving her a grace period until the end of August then she will need to start paying a little in rent.I so love waking to hearing her giggling and laughing again.

Working at a grocery store has it’s benefits I get all the sales and we sometimes get the opportunity to buy meat at a really reduced cost. So we now have a fully stocked freezer, fridge and cupboards!

The hot and humid weather has finally broken and I took the opportunity to try out a new recipe:

Strawberry Nut Loaf mmmmmmm!

Strawberry Nut Loaf mmmmmmm!

Oh my goodness,,it turned  out so good, sweet and moist!

Oh my goodness,,it turned out so good, sweet and moist!

So folks, that’s it things are looking up. It’s not perfect there will be some posts about some of the downsides, and I still am having a hard time meeting friends, BUT still it’s alot better than at the beginning of the year!

This Is (not) A Test

Awesome News,,,Rara is out!!!!
Finally some really great news in the blogging world. I am so excited to hear and read her wonderful worlds and stories!!


This is just a blog post.
You’ve posted before. Over a thousand times, actually.

You’re a little rusty, sure.  It’s been over 400 days since you so much as glimpsed the internet…
but you don’t need a license to be a blogger so it’s not like you expired.  And it’s not as if they can revoke your blog if you post something foolish.

I mean.
Remember the time you posted a series of unicorns photoshopped into fine art?

Rembrandt - Danaë (loves her Unicorns) Rembrandt – Danaë (loves her Unicorns)

Remember Brussell Crow?

Yum! Yum!


It’s just a blog post.
It’s not a test.

It doesn’t have to say all the things that need saying.  There’s time.  There’s always time for everything you need.

You can tell everyone later about how you went to state prison for over a year and experienced strange and wonderful and terrifying things.

And you will find a way to…

So I stayed had a few beers at the beer tent and watched the concert alone.

Sunday was when the bikers came and another afternoon concert with a blues band.



It was so friggen hot but I stayed and listened to some more music, went home had a cool bath and relaxed in front of the tv and enjoyed my new love: This Candle:
