Hello from snowed-in Toronto.
You may or may not have noticed I have changed my first name out of all the apps I could think of…I got scammed, and I will blog about that later, when I get confirmation. I think what happened was someone is posing as a mom from the ‘hood – I’m in the process of verifying with another email address I have for her that she is not sending me that email (and requesting money)…
Anyway, stay tuned. I’m working on not quitting writing…but I have my hands full at the moment. Also, I will have to go shovel out the cars because…
Sometimes you just gotta type out your frustrations…am I right?
In my defense, the PMS gods are striking so that’s my excuse. 😇
Anyway, this is what has got my panties in a knot last few days:

…is irking me a bit. And I will complain about it in a minute 😛 but first, I wanted to share a couple of photos I took on the way to the polling station. Because…today we vote for a new federal leader, and my polling station was next to a college campus and I tell you, the colours and scenery were absolutely breathtaking. I walked the 25 min round trip and stopped to snap some photos.

It was a PA day today, no school, so I didn’t have to make breakfast or lunches for the kids. As expected, both slept in which meant I had an extra quiet morning for writing.
I wrote a blog post I think you will enjoy. But I thought it was a bit long and a bit wordy and figured later, after I do some things in the garden, I’ll come back and finish it. I intended on publishing it by Friday evening.
It is now late afternoon and I just spent 42 minutes waiting for my laptop to load. To wake up. To DO SOMETHING.

Yesterday and all this week so far has been crap.
If one more thing happens I will lose my mind. Again.
My Pity Party in full progress.
So last night, in utter desperation and with no one to cry to, I emailed a friend from the parking lot at a rink at 10 o’clock at night that I was thinking of quitting blogging.
This morning he responded with:
Don’t kill your blog!
So basically, it’s his fault that this post is Pointless Stupidity. 🙂
Anyway you wanna know about all my issues?
Disclaimer: it’s a lot of whining and complaining, so feel free to exit now.

I can feel it coming, the depression. It’s creeping in. Taking hold, slowly, cell by cell.
I try to figure out the source and stop the flow but I don’t know what it is – Genetics? Seasonal changes? Hormones?
Let’s blame hormones. 🙄

Addressing all GenXers:
I want to know what you wore when you were in highschool during the 80s. (This is for research purposes for a piece I’m writing.)
