“Well, hello there!” The vet technician’s greeting was cheerful, but loud. Sam quickly stood and moved in front of me, then barked once. It was a no nonsense bark - warning. He is protective of his mistress. The only time I speak loudly to my beasts is when I am not happy. In his mind she was a... Sign in to see full entry.

We can safely call this house a senior’s residence. Human, beast and fowl – we are all up there in age, and I am steeling myself for what is coming; the inevitable. Mommy, my oldest beast, is already 11. She is deaf, starting cataracts, and has a bit of dementia. Her back end gives out often enough... Sign in to see full entry.

“You are not blogging anymore?” The question comes up regularly. Unfortunately the answer seems to be the same month after month. Life is getting in the way. So much going on, and with the speed I get things done nowadays, time to blog has been regulated to the back burner…the item lowest on the ”To... Sign in to see full entry.

Catching up on your writings this morning and it seems that Thanksgiving was enjoyed by many, a delight to read. In Canada, where we celebrate it in October, the holiday is not so regarded, except by my little mom, may she rest in peace. I believe she is the only Canadian I knew for whom...

And...for the first time ever in my life, I “flunked” an exam. Twice! A week before writing it, I pulled my back badly. I was on daily pain killers; it was impossible to stand straight, to sit for more than a few moments, and forget sleeping. There was no delaying it, however, so I sat for 3 hours...

This is it. The last part exam was sent in on Thursday (there were up to 4 quizzes per week and a part exam each month) and in 2 weeks to the day I’ll be writing the dreaded final exam which, hopefully, will end my year of tortuous study. The cool thing is that we will be setup with cameras and... Sign in to see full entry.

I am sitting here in the middle of the night reading your posts and I had to write this short note to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the giggles, for the information, the insight, and for just the clean(except maybe CCT's poem - still giggling on that one), uncomplicated...

Oh my – the last time I posted was in March, nearly 3 months ago!! I do come into Blogit and read, take a few moments to comment here and there when I can but, at the risk of repeating myself, this course I am taking is arduous and consumes any energy left over from the job.

It started to snow yesterday around 3 PM, and it looks like an accumulation of 8 inches or so already, and continues falling – those big, fluffy flakes giving us another splendid winter-wonderland view. Karen, although SHE has been doing the shoveling, remarked more than once how lovely the whole... Sign in to see full entry.

Here we are, Monday again. I had some catch-up work to do on Saturday, so it feels like the weekend was too short. It was filled with hockey games and basketball games and some reading and cooking, the eternal studying, then housework and sleep, although there was not enough done of the last two to...
