THE FOLLOWING IS A PITY PARTY, THEN A REALIZATION AT THE END.
Not the greatest of weeks. Our dream house was sold officially as of Tuesday evening. I got the link update Wednesday morning. I spent Monday evening & Tuesday evening worrying about it & stayed up to late. Felt better as Thursday went on. There was a viewing of our place Thursday, which is great, but if anyone makes an offer, where do we go? Regina’s not a big city & something accessible for me seems to be a rarity at best. We took the viewing time to see another house (just the neighbourhood & the outside) in an area that’s nice, but so far away from every other part of the city!
I’ve been trying to educate myself for the federal election on Monday. The more I dig, the more I realize why I haven’t voted in 21 years. I watched the federal debate twice which was oh so uninformative. It was pretty much me & the candidates at a bar for an evening at the end it felt like “Well, we’re the last 2 people here, I guess you’re it”. I’m sorry but 6 candidates to choose from & not one of them has EARNED my vote. I’ll vote since I said I will, but I’d much rather continue to exercise my right not to vote! MAYBE I’ll vote again………….in 21 years. Waste of my time & energy. “Let’s promise the moon to everyone, then pretend we never said that”. I don’t know of an elected politician that has followed through on what became empty promises. Somebody please prove me wrong after this election?
Kim’s teeth are done & she’s happy with them. Now the bill. Then Brewster’s tests & medication. Then Christmas gifts to purchase.
So I’ve spent this week stressing HARD about all of this, mostly finding a wheelchair accessible house, which seems hopeless.
I haven’t felt like eating or working out this week so far. What am I looking forward to this week? Watching the Rider game on TV tonight that’s in B.C. Other than that “I’m broken” for now.
I may be down now, but Monday is the start of a new week!
How I’m feeling as of Thursday night & even more so Friday morning. Instead of stepping back & looking at a big picture of overwhelming stuff, I took a step closer. I saw one thing at a time. I can chip away at things one by one & clear up all of this one thing at a time.
The election will be over on Monday, after that we can focus on Brewster’s health. While doing that we’ll look for a house. Through all of this I’ll get back into my smaller routine of exercising daily. There will be interruptions but that’s life. Ideally we’d be moving into our new house by mid-November, but it’s been purchased, we can’t change that, just move on & keep doing our thing.
If you’re of age & not easily offended I hope you’ve seen “Deadpool”, if not you’re WAY too late! Since the 3rd Deadpool could be in the beginning stages!?
Sell out or don’t, as long as you’re happy with where you are & how you got there & didn’t forget the people that helped you get there, be happy but humble!
My last 2 album purchases before Christmas are released today. “Alter Bridge” & “Jimmy Eat World”. I know I’ll be listening to a TON of “Alter Bridge”, “TOOL”, “Big Wreck”, “In Flames”, “Billie Eilish”, etc. for the rest of the year! There was a TON of great music that was released this year & it’s only mid-October!
If you’re getting this through Facebook, give it a like or other reaction. That’s the only way of promoting this site, since I’m not profiting from this in any way.

P.S. I had to pick up a prescription this morning for my bladder infection, that’s why this is a bit late. Back from the doctor, no bladder infection I have to “retrain” my bladder. I needed some refills on other medications too.
