Wednesdays Are For Gratitude: June 26, 2013

As of a couple days ago, Rick and I have been apart for a month. It's been really difficult, to say the least. We have been spending some time together when I've had to work. It's easier for me to stay with him when I work a few consecutive days. This past weekend, I wore some new shoes, which caused me to get a pretty awful blister on my Achilles tendon. This blister got all icky and infected, and the infection spread to the rest of my ankle. I went to the clinic and got some pretty stellar antibiotics (they stink something awful, so I'm assuming they're good) which are already working their magic. I was told by a couple people that it looks like cellulitis. I don't knot much of anything about that, so I'll just say that's probably what it is. I won't put the image in the post in case some of you are sensitive to stuff like that, but you can see it here. It's not gruesome or anything, but it's not the prettiest of things to look at. I'm hoping it's mostly better by Friday so I can get back to work.
Here is a short list of what I am grateful for this week:
-having free time to knit, make earrings, watch podcasts and read.
-free healthcare in Ontario. I had to pay for my antibiotics ($40 for 40 pills), but I didn't have to pay for the clinic visit.
-my mom having crutches. I was told to stay off my foot as much as possible.
-Richard helping me oodles with rebranding stuff.
-friends entertaining me via crazy youtube videos while I am stuck in bed
What are you grateful for this week?

Another Entry On This Now Sporadic Blog

I've honestly been meaning to post more regularly, but I just haven't had much to post about. Rick and I went up to London earlier this week to bring my computer in for repairs, so that's been another obstacle. Yes, I have the iPad (where I am updating from now) but its just not the same.
Since my last post, I've acquired five skeins of yarn. All but one were prizes in giveaways.
I still haven't been knitting much. No real reason, I just haven't been.
I'm still planning on doing a whole rebrand, so that's another reason for my blogging apathy, I'm sure.
I have been making earrings though! I got my findings a little while ago, and I've been cranking stuff out. As soon as I'm done this mediocre post, I'll be getting back to those.
I hope you're all doing well.

Wednesdays are for Gratitude: June 5, 2013

Still trying to get back into the swing of things. I'm hoping that forcing routine back on myself will help all the other stuff fall into place. This is a short list of what I'm grateful for this week.
My parents  /  My brother  /  My job  /  Having my own space at my parents  /  Visiting with family friends  /  Volunteering at the food bank  /  My friends  /  My iPad  /  eBooks  /  Richard and Winston

Sorry For the Radio Silence

It's been a while since my last post. Life has gotten in the way, and some things just needed to take a break, this blog being one of them.
My boyfriend of nearly four years and I have decided to take some time apart from each other, and I've moved back into my parents. It's been very difficult, but I have a pretty good support system. I'm in the process of sorting my belongings and deciding what to put into storage, and what to keep in my parents already full house. I'm also attempting to get a transfer to a Beer Store closer to home. I'm about 45 minutes away from my current store, which is a bit of a trek. In addition to this, I'm trying to find a second job to help get me out of debt faster. Crossing my fingers for that.
Thank you for your kind words on Facebook, twitter and the comments on here. They mean a lot. I hope to be back with some actual knitting content very soon.
