Said goodbye to these lil’ clowns yesterday. Today I’m off for 4 months of treatment at Homewood Health Centre in Ontario. Looking forward to this next part of my journey but I’m super nervous about the changes to come. ❤️
So it begins. I’m going to be on the social media stuff much more sporadicly over the next few months as I take on this next leg of my journey. If you want to get ahold of me text or DM me and I’ll get back to you when I have a chance. ❤️
One toque, one long sleeve shirt, two sweaters, one @hoodlamb winter jacket, one pair of long Johns, one pair of pants, one pair of wool socks, and one pair of winter boots is what it takes for me to sit outside on this chilly morning to take in some sunshine. Winter is coming folks. 😱
I love these chaotic clowns. They are my main motivation on my journey to better days. I was blessed this summer to get to know a mom who had her child apprehended by CFS. We talked weekly and she shared all the hard work she was doing to get her child back. This month, after 6 long months apart she was able to get her back and they are both so incredibly happy. This mom inspires me to do what I need to do and I am keeping her story close to my heart these next few months. ❤️🤪🤡
This is one of the funniest and independent ladies I know. She was so proud to see her son walk my cousin down the aisle. She is my grandma. She has a witty sense of humour and wants the best for all of her children’s children. She is a social butterfly that loves time away from the chaos. She may not have the energy she used to but it doesn’t hold her back from enjoying a good celebration for someone she loves. When I was young I used to think she was a tough woman that didn’t care but now I realize she is a tough woman that has survived and seen so much in her day and now lives in this wacky time of social media and extravagance and I think she had taken it all in stride. She lived through the depression and is now around for the age of technology where you can press a button around your neck and people will come running. I’m so glad every time I see her and it makes my heart happy to give her a hug and tell her how much I love her- even if her response is only “that’s nice”. What a great evening spent with my sweet family.
I may have asked @iron_buddha to buy a bag of carrots to feed my next door neighbour’s dog (with permission). We have mastered sit, lie down and have almost mastered speak and quiet. I feel so ridiculous giving commands through the fence sometimes but this dog brings me so much happiness. I ❤️ Queso.
Anxiety is a killer. Today has been one of those days. The stress of the next few months is weighing down on me and grating away at my nerves like a cheese grater. I’m grateful for all the support I’ve gotten over the last few months but I’m so incredibly nervous about this next phase. It may be a tad mellow dramatic but I’m really afraid. I’ve been trying really hard to be easier on myself and give myself a bit of breathing room- but not working, having a partner taking a lay off to be home and having to prepare our kids for the next bit of this journey is killing me inside. I’ve always been really good at being productive but now success is measured by waking up in the morning and getting out of the house. I look forward to better days.
