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!

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…

I’m Back

Ya so I’ve been missing in action again.

I’m not going to make any excuses life was pretty boring and I had much more important things to do like,,,ummmm

playing Bingo on Facebook.

Had a nice Christmas, ten times better than the year before, in fact I really over compensated for last year and ended up throwing out extra Turkey and baking that I did because everyone was so over it.

I was enjoying life until the Shit hit the fan on Jan 15th of this year.


Yep,the mother fucker’s decided to close all the Target stores in Canada!!  The fucking dream job that I had found and loved,,,gone poof. They didn’t even have the decency to tell before it was in the news. Nope, we got the pleasure of learning of it from the customers walking in after seeing it on the news. So as of May 16th this chick is unemployed again.

Anyhoo,,,I’m over it. It truly was like going thru a grieving process.

This now leads to making some major life changes and decisions,,,,stay tuned and see the MAJOR life changes that are coming up,,,,,that’s if I mean I have any followers left!

Day 22 & 23 of 25 Songs in 25 Days

Day 22:

A song that someone has sung to you.

I can’t really think of any one song that someone has sung directly to me. I’ve sung songs along with people but I haven’t had someone exactly sing a song to me. I think. But I do remember this song being sung AT me by my parent’s quite a few times growing up. Lol!


Day 23:

A song that you cannot stand to listen to.

The radio stations where I live are horrible for playing the SAME songs over and over. I went the other weekend to play some of my CD’s on my old style boom box type of stereo only to find that it no longer works le sigh….

I really need to get one of those ipod stands that have speakers so that I can download music of all kinds and play instead of having the radio on all the time and don’t have to endure the streaming of the same songs over and over. I guess I have to add that onto my rather long wish list of purchases I need to make once I amass more fundage.

I couldn’t pick just one that drive me up the wall.



I wrote this post btw at 3:50 a.m because my cat’s woke me up playing, fighting and meowing at 3:10 a.m. After me yelling, throwing things at them, feeding them, pleading with them and making deals they are now at 4:10 a.m rather quite comfy and off to dreamland again. While I am WIDE awake!


They are lucky I love them so much the little F*er’s!

Day 3 of 25 Songs in 25 Days.

Day 3:

A song that reminds you of one/both your parents.


My parent’s loved music when I was growing up and my mom still has the radio or cd player going on in whatever room she is in.

I distinctly remember my dad playing this song but it wasn’t this version or even the original version by Neil Young. All I remember is is that it was a female singer and the cover of the vinyl album was in the old fashioned blue pattern of a old plate.

So I picked a good ‘ol Canadian version sung by a chick.


Now if any of you out there know my mum, you know that she absolutely loves Enrique Iglesias!

Yep, picture a 60ish woman with her rum and coke, rocking out to this latin cutie as she is baking up some home made bread.

Hahaha sorry for the blindness.


Truth be told this little diddy sum’s up good ‘ol mum and pop to the tee!

Have a good day all, and see you tomorrow!




Happy F$%&*#G Spring!

So folks it’s the official first day of Spring. When I opened my beautiful brown eyes this morning and looked out the window THIS is what I was expecting to see:

Cute Puppies

Cute Puppies


Sweet Kitties

Sweet Kitties







Ok, ok I admit that’s a little bit too hopeful but come on Mother Nature really another 4-8 cm’s of blowing snow, c’mon that’s just a horrible cruel joke.

Now these pics I took last week these made me happy, they aren’t pretty but these are small glimpses that make this Canadian gurl know that winter is finally coming to a end.

This is the snowbank that has hidden me from the local buses,,it's finally melting! Look at all that ugly dirt and garbage yuck!

And this looks like a river right???  Nope, it's the sidewalk that leads to the bus stop, with the snowbank. Yep the crap is finally melting!

Anyway I look at it. I have resigned too myself that I’m going to cooped up in the apartment for at least a few more weeks, before Spring really has sprung. Till then I will continue to work on my new project.

My first attempt at a little quilt, it's slowly coming together. Mostly because I'm lazy and choose the computer and tv over the poor thing.
