What a year

I haven't been blogging at all this year, it has been quite a ride. I went through 8 weeks of cancer treatment in Vancouver and am now fine. It has taken quite awhile to get back to normal, but now hopefully things start looking up and I am going to try to get back to doing what I like to do, gardening, sewing, crocheting and getting my blog up and running. Wish me luck!!!

The big C

On March 6th of ,this year I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Shocking, well unfortunately no, the signs had been there for awhile, but like a lot women I ignored them, you know the its my age excuse or whatever, you know who you are so go right and make an appointment for a PAP test.
Well now I am in Vancouver, at the lovely Jean C Barber Lodge, facing radiation, internal radiation and chemo until May 10th. Problem is that I don't live in Vancouver, I live in Terrace, over 1000 miles away. That's why I now "live" at the Lodge. I am so very lucky to live in British Columbia Canada, sure I have to be away from home but at least I know that my needs with be dealt with and I am in great hands with the BC Cancer Agency. The page I am starting is about my journey and also what I felt was very lacking practical information, transportation, lodging etc. Sure the doctors get your appointments all set up but there is more to than that, like Where do I stay? How do I get there? Where do I get money? Especially for those of us not blessed with money.

Really… June?

Seriously, this can not be June… I mean this is horrible, rain, rain and when you think it couldn’t possibly rain any more… it does. Well don’t quite feel so bad about not tackling my crab grass patch, nothing would grow out there anyways. Oh well bet the ducks are real happy.
I haven’t been on at all getting all that stuff done, that is the slight problem with mobile internet sticks, 5Gigs go REALLY fast !!!!! and going over well …REALLY expensive so…..later. That is if I am not floating down the river, but it is a MOBILE internet so I could really post from anywhere… even floating down the river.

June has been quite cool and rainy up here. Oh well more time to spend on other things. Well you would think anyways…
I have recently started doing surveys, why not earn a couple bucks?? I have also recently started using Google Chrome too, found this amazing extension called cortex, you can send to any of your social networks with your mouse, very cool.
Really been enjoying my laptop.. love being able to sit in a comfy chair and surf. I just love this Windows 7 too, much better than Vista.
Anyone out there a fan of Doctor Who, just loved the middle of season ender… love that show.
My third daughters birthday tomorrow, 21..seriously I now am banning all birthdays!! Happy Birthday Kimberly.

Its already the end of May?

How time is flying this year. Thankfully we have had a cool spring because I am so behind on the gardening. It would help if the garden wasn't such a weed patch! The kids are getting so big, I have to update this blog and get posting now that I can access the internet. I am going to try to get some stuff on my blog that I have had stuffed away for years, recipes for perfume, lotions, gardening stuff, home stuff and of course updates on the kids. I love this new page feature, makes organizing everything much easier.

Happy Holidays

It has been almost a year since we have moved. Things didn't go the way I had wished but what does? The garden was in pretty rough shape and most of it the soil is just dead. The fruit trees where in pretty bad shape, but I managed to get one pruned pretty well. The backyard had quite the hole in it, from where they had repaired the septic system,we managed to fill that in. I am not sure what will be happening as far as living here this year, personally I would kill for high speed again !!!! We did have a pretty nice X-mas, the kids made out like little bandits. I am going to try to start writing again, I may be getting a laptop in January so...... there is always Tim Horton's. (Hot spot). Bye for now.

We have Moved

We moved to the country and now zippy internet is now just a memory. Dial-up only out here. I am so saving for Satellite. May be flakey but anything is better than Dial-up
