seriously...its been 357 days???

Okay, thats almost a year!!!

What a freaking wierd year it has been!   so what, my new readers, you may be asking was 357 days ago?

It was the first day I noticed I had a problem with my vision and we started out on this journey with Intercranial Hypertension.    The end seems so close, I have an appointment to go see the specialist in 7 days and it should be when she takes me off the medication!   YAY....

But in the last few days I have been having more headaches (possibly due to sinus infection?), I have needed to wear my glasses WAY more, and have had 1 or 2 days with some wierd vision things.

I really, really, really don't want to be taking this medication forever!   Chris and I would really like to stay on the road to good health and start having a family in the next year, but that can't happen until all the meds are out of my system!

I am getting older, it could be because of stress, it could be I am not drinking enough water, it could be because of being sick.    Whatever it is, only the scans will tell!

Please join me in praying for good results, we really just want to get on with our lives!   

Thank you to all of you who have been praying along with me and my family for my Mom's quick recovery from Cancer!   Her second round of chemo went much more smoothly and we are praying for better and better results each and every day!

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

This week in online dating - you are Amazed by Me....

Or..alternatively - How does this chick get all these guys??

I think sometimes people are a bit amazed when they see me and see that I don’t really have a problem getting dates.  Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a post about me bashing myself so get off your soap boxes; but I think we have this media culture that tells us


 I am going to have to call bullshit!
I will admit, if I a guy is super-hot, I generally don’t email or wink at him first.   I automatically assume that they will not be interested in me.   It always boggles my mind when a total hottie messages me and tells me how beautiful I am.   I regret to say I often ask them if they have seen all my pictures and know that I am a bigger more fluffy girl.   99.8% of the time the reply I get back is:
OH YES….I love a girl with gorgeous curves like yours.
I have to be honest; I get about 3 times as many messages as I te…

17 Million Dollars Last year.....

That's how much money Canadians lost due to romance scams!

Astounding isn't it!
Hello my lovelies,
Spring is finally upon us and it seems (this week at least) that it is trying to jump headlong into summer!   I hear the rains are a’comin mid next week so maybe we won’t get stuck with water restrictions and dead grass everywhere for another few weeks
Things are pretty quiet on the dating front as the Foreman and I have been spending a lot of time together.  It’s hard to balance the casual nature of it with the feelings that come when you spend a lot of time with someone awesome! 

Since I wrote last, I had spoken with Mr. Adams, Mr. Poly, and a handful of others but not had any other dates.  
Dutch keeps messaging me but I have taken to just ignoring him now.   I also told Rico that I am not interested in seeing him again.   I wasn’t feeling it and when I told him I was seeing someone and wanted to see where that went he immediately asked if we could just Bang one time….so….
