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….


Wait….can it be….did she get boring already?????????????


 Dig way back and think about Mr. Seattle….do you remember him?

He told me telling me Good Morning isn’t just good morning it means I was the last and first thing he thought about.   Sent me sweet messages throughout the day…almost seemed to good to be true?


 It started innocently enough we talked about the mundane of life and our families and friends.   His dad had passed away not that long ago and he was actually leaving town in a few weeks to deal with the estate and court.   His father had been a big shot or something on a rail line in Malaysia.   He would be gone two weeks but he really wanted to come up and see me when he got home.

They day came for him to go and he sent me a message before he left and another when he hit the ground.   He touched base with me throughout the day, telling me how awesome it was there.    We frequently missed each other because of the time difference but he texted every day regardless.   He was pretty stressed about court and one day he sends me a picture of a bank letter outlining they account and that it is now in his name.

I thought it was kind of weird but I just assumed he was really happy it had finally been dealt with and hadn’t thought about the fact he just sent me some pretty personal info including his address.   2 days later he sent me a screen shot of the final court ruling as well and the letter saying he just needed to pay the court fees and then it would be done.



HOLY F^%&$.....

OMG…..

He is going to ask me for money!   

I did some quick research and It appears that the name and job do belong to someone in Seattle but they are older.   The address belongs to two women….I mean it could be he is legit right??  Maybe he won’t ask for money right?

Here…I will let you read it yourself

     


He was not pleased because I told him I asked my mom and dad to help me (I didn't LOL)

   

I have to say…I want to believe in people so I tested him and asked him to send me a selfie….I have after all only seen 4 pictures of him.   I mean I watch catfish I know this is an issue!


      
      

 So there you go dear readers….I was a target for a romance scam….someone update my crap stats page LOL.

I feel really bad for the women and men who get sucked in by things like this.   I mean don’t get me wrong I felt that dissonance and that desire for this not to be a scam.   He was such a nice guy.    Those exist still right?
Sigh….

It’s that fine line between erecting the wall and being vulnerable. 
  I often wonder how many times it will take before my faith in humanity is totally shattered?

 
I think sometimes people think I am too trusting and too understanding but you know…I am not sure I want a life lived the opposite way.  

I hope you have a fantastic day, it is beautiful out here on the west coast and I hope you get a chance to enjoy the sun this weekend!

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

Its been awhile dear readers but I am back in the land of the english speakers (i have been for almost a month sorry!!!!)
I was trying to get some time in with the handsome man in my life, get my house in order and get back on track with work after a month away, so of course i got SICK!!  YAY.    I will have lots of pictures and some stories to share with you all who are not on my facebook.  
But first I want to tell you about the one and only subscription box I keep around (even when money is tight).  This is my gift to me as an incentive to keep working hard on being a bigger, badder, sexier, stronger - more healthy version of myself.
I have reviewed a few boxes but for those who don't know, FabFitFun is a lifestyle box filled with full size (and occaional travel size) products that are focused on keeping you fabulous, fit and having fun.  I am so excited about this next box that I have to share with you the spoilers we have been given.
