Horrendously hectic
Things are beyond crazy so blogging is taking a back seat.

First the good news, my friend from San Fran will be arriving tomorrow afternoon for a mini-vacation/girly weekend! I plan on showing her all Canada has to offer on Canada Day. And of course, Saturday, we are off on the zodiac boat to go whalewatching.

I bought a new camera for the memories this weekend.

Now the bad news that is causing a lot more concern. My Mom has been ill for the last little bit, and with emphysema, even the most basic cold can send things into a spiral. Since the party last weekend she has taken a turn and is extremely ill. She is unable to move and has been bedridden since last Sunday. However, bringing up the thought of her going to the hospital is met with open hostility. My Mom is one tough lady, but she's also stubborn and it's very frustrating to see her unable to get more than two words out before gasping for breath.

If you could keep her in your thoughts, and wish her well, I'd appreciate it. Of course, a few prayers couldn't hurt.

I am trying to get tomorrow off work, but it's looking sketchy. The computers at work have been down all day due to some server trouble in Austria (apparently a very bad storm in Zeltweg?) so the work is piling up and I can't seem to get ahead.

Todd update, just to throw it in....haven't heard from him in 4 days but got a quick email that they are working 14-16 hour days and he's exhausted. That and AT&T is demanding his next born for the phonecard and he has to wait until payday for that to happen. He's forbidden me to spend more money on phonecards, as he wants me to save, but well, after hearing that, somehow my credit card number slipped onto the AAFES site and bought a 550 Card. Oops!

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
