Five on Friday

Image
Happy Sunday, Friends! I will get to my second week of Spring Break, I promise. I just haven't been as into blogging or even journalling lately. I did an InstaStory this afternoon, which I might add on to tonight. I have been going through some health issues that last 6 weeks, and we are trying to figure out what is going on. This is kind of similar to what happened 8 years ago. You can read about here and here. This isn't worse per se, but it definitely isn't pleasant. I will do a post about it another time, but for now, let's do some Five on Fridays!!!


1)  Today got up to 17c (62.6F) today! And it was sunny!! I could have worn my capri pants and sandals; it was that warm! It was too hot to sit in the car without the window down.


2) I found two great thrift finds last Monday at our local Value Village. I found a spring coat for $6.50, and runners for $15.


3) Anker had I had a couple of date days the last while, and on Monday, we grabbed some cheap chocolate. I know Ea…

Spring Break; Wk 1

Hello from sunny, but chilly Calgary, Alberta :) Vienna and I are here for the week visiting family and friends, and being all adult and driving the BIG CITY, and feeling quite proud of ourselves :)  I will blog more about that later, but I thought I would blog about my first week of Spring Break.

Friday (March 16): We didn't do a bunch of work at school; it was mainly hands on stuff, and the adults the kids were more than ready to be done. We also dressed in green for St. Patrick's Day. After school, I went to/for coffee with my teacher friend whom I work with. We talked for a couple of hours. After coffee, I went to Wal-Mart, and bought a few things, and then went home for the evening. (This line was also written on March 31). I also woke up not feeling well (along with the other health issues that I have been having lately), and I basically still don't feel 100%.





Saturday: I am pretty sure that I slept in super late, and I hung out and ran errands. I went to the library…

It's Friday... But Sunday's a Coming!

I love this, and I share this every year. I am thankful that Jesus died for my sins. I am not enough, but He is!!!

***Please note that this involves talking about intimate health details; if this is not your cup of tea, then I would suggest you move on by!!***

***Please ALSO note that this is not a sponsored post. This is just something that I have been wanting to write about for awhile, and I MIGHT have some sort of cure to/for this***

K, so the first tiny part was written who knows when....I have since discovered no cure yet...:(


For quite sometime now, I have suffered from Bacterial Vaginosis, or BV. It has a range of different symptoms; anywhere from a horrid smell, to itchiness, to burning when you pee, to discharge...well, you get the idea. I don't know on how long I have had it for. I have had the smell for YEARS. I think I naturally just have that sort of smell, but I also know that I also suffer from BV. My symptoms are the smell, discharge, and itchiness (though I could have reoccurring yeast infections). I have been on a round or two of antibiotics, but it always comes back. I have …

I haven't felt the need to blog much lately, beyond doing the odd FOF post. I hope that with the 2 week Spring Break, I will be able to hammer out a few posts. Here are some of my favourites from this last week:

1) Hello, 2 Week Spring Break!!! I am SO excited and SO ready!!!! I cannot wait...and HELLO...we actually HAVE spring-like weather now!!

2) I made my first ever Instagram/InstaStory today! I kind of like it, but it is a bit annoying; having to do it in increments. I do kind of like the idea of, though. Head on over to my IG Account to take a look and check it out!

3) Remember the my blogging about the phone charger for the car that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago? Well, it didn't work. So, I took it back, and prior to that I bought two cheapos from the dollar store. So far, so good! I hope they last longer than the ear buds that I got a month or so ago. I used them a few times, and one of the ear buds stopped working. Thankfully, I had kept the other set who's …

I am going to make this quick, since it is nearly midnight, and I have spent who knows on long blogging my last post.

1) Red Shirt

I bought this shirt a couple of weeks ago, and I really love it. It was only $15 at Wal-Mart. I love that it is light, and that it covers my butt, and that it is also a shirt that I can wear to work. I don't have to wear a camisole with it, but I will sometimes, just for extra warmth.


2) Big Bang

I FINALLY found the 10th season of TBBT at (where else?) Wal-Mart. I have been looking for it for ages, and they FINALLY had it!

3) Car Charger

I have been wanting to get a phone charger for our car, since my phone is a such a battery suck. I got one at (you guessed it!) WM the other night.



4) New Mascara

I didn't really need new mascara, since I only wear it on a semi-rare occasion, but I was wanting to buy some sort of make up, and I feel that I could only really justify my buying mascara. And it was in a pink tube! So, I couldn't resist it. I haven&…

Random/Useless Info

Just a few random things before I get into this week's FOF:

I am back into watching Mike and Molly again. It has started to grow on me :) I decided to give on 9-1-1. At least for now. I couldn't get in to it, plus, I didn't have all the episodes, and I don't know where to watch the first few. I might try to pick it up in the summer.

I was very sad to hear of Rev. Billy Graham's passing over a week ago. He was a great man of God, and he has gone to his reward. I grew up watching him on TV, and he had such simple, but powerful sermons. I got a couple of books from the library about him (one that he has written), and I will probably read through them. I think my parents have his autobiography, which I will probably see if I can borrow to look through.

I was having "lady issues" (which I may or may not blog about in the next while), and I went to my doctor, who gave me provera. I had to take a day off over that. Suffice it to say, that I will no longer be nee…
