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?

Sorry no pic because this butt fuck of a town doesn’t believe in posting pictures online, lol!

It’s been a few months, but I have a excuse.

In the last 2 months, I have made major life changes.

1. Started a new job with a lot more responsibilities and management duties.

2. Packed up and moved over 3 hours north to a new small community.

3.Had to live with my parent’s for 3 weeks (that was a hard one, lol).

4. Had my daughter’s girlfriend from Wales, UK, come visit for 2 weeks during the move.

Suffice it too say, I’ve been a tad busy. There was a few mishaps but all in all the move went well and we are adjusting well.

I’m adjusting to working early hours now (I used to close at Target all the time). I work 6 days a week from 7 am to noon, work is a 15 minute walk so that’s nice, it’s not too fun in the rain tho and I am already dreading it during the snow season, lol.

Here’s a pic of my walk to work every morning,,,it’s a hard life, le sigh!!!

The kitties handled the move relatively well my couch didn’t fit into the new apt. so I ended giving the old one to one of the mover’s for his kids play room and went and bought a used one at the used shop for $60 Tink likes it as you can see:

Big “C” is doing so well, she has got a job and is enjoying it with only a mild case of anxiety, the kid is smiling all the time now, it’s wonderful. Her gf came for a visit from Wales. They have never met in “real life” before but they hit it off and now she is planning to go for a visit in the fall.

The love bugs!

Look at that smile my girl has!

Now that we are finally settled in and things are starting to slow down, I am going to start posting and writing a lot more, I have missed it and need to get back to it!

See you all very soon!

Guess what??

I’M MOVING!!!

To Here:

BANCROFT, ON, CANADA

BANCROFT, ONTARIO

Here is the town’s official website, in case you’d like to take a peek!

It’s a quaint little town of around 4,000 people with around 40,000 people in the surrounding area. So, basically I am moving from a City of 150,000 to 4,000. Crazy right??

You might be saying to yourself,,,what the hell is this chick doing moving to God’s country for?

Well let me explain to you why. There is many reason’s.

The day that I lost my job, I arrived home to a nice letter on my apartment door notifying me that my rent was being increased. Lovely.

My daughter then went thru a major depressive and anxiety state, that ended up with her being hospitalized (she’s home now and doing well).

When I turned to who I “thought” were my best friend(s) for support, I learned they weren’t who I thought they were and found myself all alone and wishing I was closer to my family. One morning I found myself venting this wish out loud on the couch and my daughter heard me and said. “Why don’t we do it then, let’s look into it?

I spoke to my parent’s who surprised me by being really supportive and welcoming. So, I pulled up my big girl panties and knowing that it’s hard to find a job up North, I took a day and emailed my resume to every business in town. Surprisingly, I received responses quickly right away. I took a few days vacation and went up for some interviews.

I accepted a job at one of the larger grocery’s stores in town as a Inventory Control Manager on the condition that my start date would not begin until I was released from my Target job so that I could get my measly payout. They worked with me and I start on May 11th. It’s only part-time but I know if I work hard, I will get more hours. I took this particular job because it is unionized and working up there where winter lay offs happen every year I would be ensured not to be laid off and I will eventually get benefits again.

Finding a place to live was more difficult then I anticipated  because I don’t have a vehicle I needed to find something in town so I can walk too and from work. I put my faith in my parent’s hands and they went to see a apt in smaller building and based on their opinion I took a leap and took the place. I’m moving into a place I have never seen EEEK!!!

This is a winter pic of the place. Our new home over looks the the York river and it's actually on the same road in the above pic. Simply beautiful country.

We don’t get the new place until May 30th.

I start my new job on May 11th so that means I will be staying with my parent’s and my daughter will stay down in a virtually all packed up place to take care of our kitties for almost 3 weeks.

With my parent’s getting older I will be closer to them if they need me. My daughter’s Dr’s believe a much smaller community and being closer to her grandparent’s would be better for her and with rent being quite a bit cheaper. I believe I have made a good decision. I hope!
