Hello my fellow bloggers and followers:

It has been a while since I have written on my blog, I have been so busy and many things have happened to me in the past month or so not to mention my stress level has been on the uprise for the last week.

In January I don’t know if I told you about this but I was in an accident with a transit bus, I was also in the process of moving into my apartment at the end of January 2013 after having been in women’s shelter for approx one month it sure was nice to have my independence, live my life alone with my cats as I really do enjoy my company.

Two weeks into February 2013 we all had a surprise in our call centre, the general manager gave all of us without having any notice what so ever was closing down the call centre immediately, this was our last shift I have to tell you I was not in the least bit impressed so here I was just having moved into my apartment I’m beside myself so what do I do now?.

Other than being stressed out wondering what I am going to do, not knowing how I am going to pay rent, put food on the table, have a bus pass and I am unable to work due to this accident as I have physiotherapy three times per week for the last two months now, today I have had close to fourteen treatments of physiotherapy with no signs of physiotherapy ending anytime in the future and now that I am unable to work for an extended period and have had to apply for unemployment insurance which, turns out, will only be paying me $119 per week for fifteen weeks not to mention that social assistance will have to cover almost everything at this time.

I also forgot to mention that the owner of the building that I moved into in February 2013 well he plans to hike up the rent yet another $50.00 needless to say I am not very happy to say the least. I am  frustrated about many things it always seems to me that when I take a few steps ahead I get further behind.

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.
