A continuation of last nights weblog


It is Monday and so emotionally drained very tired and stressed out because of what happened yesterday at my old apartment having the locks changed so I was not able to move my belongings out how convenient was that. As a result of this issue yesterday I will now have to get the police involved if this goes on for much longer this is something that I was hoping would not happen instead I was hoping to resolve this without any further issues but, yet again it seems that this is all about power and control and have to tell you I am sick and tired of this as well as these stupid mind games that people play. I will now have to take more time off to deal with all this nonsense of moving.
On the brighter side I will be getting my children back very soon and hopefully into a regular routine where I will be able to get to bed at a decent hour and get back to doing some reading before my bedtime getting a good nights rest and having a small breakfast in the morning before heading off to work.
I have plans in the very near future to get out and go to comedy clubs, out for dinners with a friend I have met here in shelter she is a woman from India her and I get along quite well and we are sharing the same room in shelter perhaps in the future we might travel together to Banff go sightseeing and stay a few days so I am truly looking forward to doing many things, meeting new people and making new friends all part of a new chapter in my life.

The end of the weekend update


This past weekend has been all full of up’s and down’s Saturday was not too bad, I had many things to do like my banking, getting ready to move into my new apartment and I think the most stressful thing I had to do is go back to the apartment where I used to live with Colin, I had felt very anxious and nervous not knowing what to expect upon entering. Much to my surprise I was happy to find no-one at home and the reason I say that is simply because all Colin and I have done is fighting and arguing and that kind of stress is something that I can do without as I’m stressed out enough, anyway I finished doing some packing but started to get tired a couple of hours later so I was planning on coming back on Sunday to finish off all my packing and so I took a taxi home and went upstairs to get some rest.
Sunday however was anything but a pleasurable experience the first part of my day was great had plans to go up and see my new landlord do inspection and get my keys which I did no problem then I called some movers that were recommended by the shelter staff they showed up at the apartment complex and we went up to the apartment much to my surprise when I tried all of my keys none of them worked so I was locked out! There are no words to express how I was feeling but you can just about imagine so I called the landlord and she explained to me that if I was not on the lease which I was not there was nothing that she could do except for me to call the police which is going to cause me more of a headache than I already have so that’s exactly what I did.
I will have to continue part two of this story tomorrow as I am getting very tired.
Goodnight everyone

Updates for the week


Hello everyone:
Well, I am extremely happy now, the last time I wrote in my blog I had many things up in the air not knowing which end is up.
I was able to get my apartment a one bedroom that excepts my children (the kids Keenie and Weston). The landlord is very nice and is very strict regarding bylaws meaning that it has to be quiet in the building after a certain time which I like, he will also not tolerate any late night parties which I am very happy about, needless to say I am very anxious to be moving/getting settled in my own place. I am also looking into getting movers in the near future and to be reunited with my children.
I recently spoke with one of the ladies at the pet resort and Keenie and Weston are doing great it almost makes me wonder if my children will even want to come home after having so much fun at the pet resort, I am just glad the kids are happy and since they are it gives me peace of mind, needless to say I will have no problem in the future taking my cats back out to the resort should I need to leave town or something comes up. Country Club Pet Resort if you are interested to learn more here is the link http://www.countryclub-petresort.com/.
I also had an appointment with the worker for Income support today (she comes to shelter every week) and I was able to get the funding that I needed to move into my new place so everything thankfully is falling into place and will finally be able to have some normalicy in my life and get on a regular sleep routine all I need to do now is get my furniture (two of my bookcases, bed, file cabinet, dresser drawers,high boy and my chair in the bedroom and get my boxes that have been packed from months ago brought over to my new house and and give the landlord my money and will get the keys hopefully soon.

Friday a good day and a brighter future ahead


Hello everyone:
Well, It is now Saturday Jan 12th and here I am on the computer at 3AM unable to sleep because I am so excited, I am hoping that I will have some good news later today.
After all this fiasco of being in shelter, juggling work and many other things now on my plate I think that the end is near and soon to be reunited with my children Keenie and Weston (the cats) I miss them terribly.
I spoke with one of the ladies at the country club pet resort earlier friday and my children are doing just great Weston Is loving every minute of this wonderful vacation and Keenie has, for the most part come around and being himself once again which I am very happy about as Keenie does not seem to adapt very well to changes of any kind they are both loving all the attention that they have been given all I have to say is when my children are happy then mom is very happy too!
I had a great day at work very productive to say the least my mindset was much different than it has been in weeks, in fact, I would even say months, I was able to focus on work with a very positive attitude and my end result was 19 mail-outs now if you know anything about telemarketing this is a hard job to do even trying to get people to stay on the other end of the phone let alone send them out an invitation to attend an open house, I think they should hire me as the trainer for telemarketers.
I spent a couple of hours soaking in the bathtub this evening yet again, reflecting on stuff past and present at the end of the day I really think that I made a wise choice in so far as moving from Colin’s apartment I really do wish him all the best in life and truly hope that he will make some serious changes for his own sake, if he does choose to make some changes things might change for the better for him but he needs the help and this is something that I, unfortunately am unable to help him with anymore I have tried everything possible so now all I can do is pray that his life gets much better for him and his mindset will change.
I’m getting tired now and think I will go upstairs and get some rest I will write again soon and give you updates as they happen

Day eleven in women’s shelter


Hello everyone:

Well, I am happy to report I am still among the living and have not lost my sanity yet but had a few meltdowns already, I am missing my cats, feeling very lost, being homeless and waiting for the other shoe to fall I tell you what a way to live but I am now hoping for not much longer hopefully some good news will be coming for me soon I might still be living here in the Calgary area or I might not at this point it is just a waiting game for me.

Many things have transpired since I last wrote in my blog, Colin has called one of my friends back home and have no clue as to why, at this point I’m not exactly sure what to think anymore so yet again my trust is next to none at this point with anyone I feel that it is best this way for the time being.

I called Colin last weekend to let him know that I will be by hopefully this weekend to come and get the rest of my things out of his apartment that we both shared, for me it was only a temporary solution until I was able to get on my feet. Hopefully it will be this weekend and have decided for all parties involved that it would be best to not have any of his friends move me due to potential problems in the future I really do not want our friends getting in the middle of all this, I would not like to be stuck in the middle and besides it can make for an uncomfortable situation.
