Here are a few of my favorite online haunts:
[This is the site I visit to fantasize about
living in Toronto again, which is almost
day during the winter]
Jonathan Cainer's Zodiac Forecasts
[This is where I visit in the morning, when
I need a positive spin on things past, present
[This is where I go to see what Canadians
are up to, sometimes I even buy things from
the businesses listed there.]
Environment Canada Weather
[This is the site I visit every morning,
and before every road trip during the winter]
I've not been writing of late, and I miss it
I'm working at my little job, at greatly
reduced hours. This job does not provide
enough hours that I would qualify for Employment
Insurance when laid off. I was promised a
small raise, but they reneged on that, saying
that they would give me the raise in July.
Their business is feeling the economic times,
and I think they are finding it harder to
come up with the funds for their children's
private school bills. So far their lifestyle
seems unaffected by the times, but there
has been a definite down side as their employee.
I work mostly
on the few days that Attila has
while Attila is working and working the rest
of the time when everyone else is visiting
and has time off. Not a good mix, but nothing
for it but to get on with things and suffer
through the situation.
I am going in to work a little late today,
so I am making time to write this entry.
I've had another infection in my jaw; this
one snuck up on me with no pain and just
a twinge of discomfort. The cost of keeping
the teeth involved is far beyond our means
and is not possible. The teeth go on Monday.
I have to sign a release form indicating
that I am OK with the possibility that my
jaw may be broken and/or tooth chips may
be left behind. There are no complicating
factors involved. When did competent dentists
start demanding release from the results
of their work in order to provide needed
treatment? I am a captive audience though,
and there are no other alternatives, so I'll
sign my rights away to get the help I need.
I am grieving the loss of these teeth, but
resigned to the necessity to eliminate the
source of serious infection. The only antibiotic
I can take, due to allergies, causes increasingly
unpleasant side effects.
On the up side, a recent eye exam revealed
that my eyesight has not deteriorated at
all since the last exam. Good news indeed.
Times are challenging for Annie and Frank,
a dear relative of theirs is dying and they
are staying close and honouring the process.
Our thoughts are with them and their loved
Helena is recovering from her surgery, and
is looking and feeling fantastic.
Everyone else is healthy as far as I know,
and that is a blessing.
Well, I'm off now to prepare for my day at
work. Yesterday I was on my feet for nine
hours solid and this morning I could hardly
move! I've taken my painkillers and now that
they are "kicking in" I can get
on with my day.
I've just read over this entry and I am thinking
the title might well be "Winge",
rather than hectic! I will allow myself a
little bit of a wallow though, but only a
little bit. After all, the sun shone this
morning and the birds are singing.
