Our Tree.

Tree2011 We put up our Christmas tree( pictured here) and have our outdoor lights on and it LOOKS like the Christmas season now too we finally have snow! I also did ok on my own doing all the work by myself for the 2 weeks my mother was away(the 10 and 12 YR olds said what they missed most was the camera!), everyone got fed every day, laundry got done every day, the garbage got put out, beds got made, school got taught, groceries got bought, the house got cleaned, dishes got washed, etc. I did my work, made sure everyone else did their share,and kept things running smoothly, proving to everyone(and to myself) that I CAN do it without falling apart, even though I’m sure they still probably thought I “didn’t do anything”, and proving that I AM more capable than I thought! Now my hubby’s 50 he got a letter in the mail from the gov’t as well( Big Brother monitoring him) to get his prostate screened for cancer, and I joked, “How’s THAT for a birthday gift; a hose shoved up your butt?” and our oldest gets 5 WEEKS paid vacation off work every YR(most people in this country only get 2 weeks!) and he’s already taking a week off even though he’s only been working there since August or September(I forget) and the 19 YR old has an interview next week at a plastics place,too!

The roofers are also starting on the work now even though originally they said not until spring, and I’m mad I missed the TV news on Thursday because of stupid f*cking redneck football( and it hasn’t been on Sundays for MONTHS because of that loser crap,either!) and it’s not right that regular shows always get pre-empted for redneck garbage, and they said on the news as well at the G20 Summit Canada let(and even helped) USA spy on other nations( which is illegal) and just when I think this country can’t *possibly* suck any more than it does already it still somehow finds a way to manage, and in response to citizens’ outrage at skyrocketing hydro bills the Minister Of Energy just said too bad; they’re NOT lowering the cost; he just said to pay it or use LESS electricity! Even when the hydro company offered to build 2 new stations to meet the demand and lower the cost they REFUSED and just said we either pay more or use less, even though we still have appliances we need to use to cook our food and clean our clothes, furnaces we need to heat our homes in winter,and A/C to cool our homes in summer, etc.but what do you EXPECT from the Liberals? I hate this country so much!

As well, the gov’t stole an 85 YR old farmer’s land; he has over 200 acres of farm land plus 60 acres of woods and he refused to sell(they want it to expand an airforce base) as it’s been in his family for 200 YRS so they just expropriated it and stole it right from underneath him! How fascist! They’re nothing more than big bullies and in the end they strong-armed ,threatened,and blackmailed him into finally signing it over by saying if he doesn’t  agree to sign it over now they’ll give him less than HALF what they offered before! They’re so heartless,and it was so stupid on the news report how they showed a report about a 14 YR old girl who was stabbed and killed and they showed a grisly blood-soaked snowbank without warning and then before the very next story had a warning “Warning, graphic content that may disturb some viewers”…and all it was was about a dog that had string tied around it’s balls in a home-made castration attempt! So they didn’t think the gruesome murder of a CHILD was disturbing but tying a string around a DOG’S balls WAS? Clearly someone’s priorities are all wrong; they care more about animals than about people,and they even said farmers ARE allowed to do it to castrate livestock but you can’t do it to a dog or you can get 5 YRS in jail, but what’s the difference though? They’re all animals(so then why can you do it to pigs and cows but not dogs?), and either it’s cruel or it’s not….

I also had a dream I was stripped by bullies and forced to be outside naked, so I’m even bullied in my dreams,too, and it hurts that everyone always hates me(incl. my own family) and bullies me for my Asperger’s( and I’m pretty sure I’m bipolar as well) when I’m just doing my best to survive and most of the time I just go into survival mode as I can’t handle life, and everyone’s always disappointed in me and I disappoint myself all the time and I never meet anyone’s expectations and I fail at everything I do, even being a mother.That’s a hard thing to realize, to deal with,and to live with.

First Snow!!

OurSnow We FINALLY got snow at long last! A few days ago we got flurries for about 5 minutes but now we got REAL snow where everything’s all white! We got 13 cm with 5 cm more coming! The 6 and 10 YR old’s spent HRS playing outside in it and making a snowman and my mother and the kids have the camera with them in the Caribbean so I improvised and took the photo seen here with the Tablet instead, so enjoy!  School buses were all cancelled here but my kids complain since we homeschool that they never get snow days and still have to do school( they get to go out and play in it but not until school work’s done first!)The 19 YR old also threw out my pills so I made him pay for new ones as the rule is if you throw something out, lose it, or ruin it you either fix it or replace it, and the 12 YR old said to my hubby, “Pay attention to ME, I’M the pretty one!” and when I said, “What about the 10 and 14 YR olds? They’re cute,TOO!” she huffed,”They’re ugly cows!” and my hubby didn’t wash the pot he used,either, and told the 10 YR old to wash it for him( lazy, now I know where the 19 YR old gets it from;he just leaves his dishes in the sink and expects someone else to wash them for him,too) but my rule is if you cook with it you wash it,if you eat off it, you wash it. I’m not doing everyone’s dishes; they’re not crippled ,and there’s no reason everyone can’t wash their own dishes and clean up after themselves! I’m not a slave!(“Just because you have a hole in your arse doesn’t mean you’re crippled!”)

As well, my old friend’s(I’ve known for 25 YRS) best friend from highschool died (I think he had cancer) and it makes me feel really old now,too, that people my age are DYING, and they said there’s going to be even MORE redneck hockey on TV now which’s ALL I “need” as it already monopolizes the TV, takes over the news, and pre-empts the TV shows all the time as it is and I’m sick of seeing it everywhere as it is now and certainly don’t need more of it: I wish it wasn’t on at ALL and when they were on strike was the best, and on the news they said of the developed world that seniors in THIS country live in poverty the worst( it figures; Canada sucks) and the Auditor General’s report showed rail safety and food safety in this country is poor as well( no surprise here; we always lag behind other countries) with inspectors poorly trained and follow-up is lax, and a Facebook friend’s husband’s getting his gallbladder out in 2 weeks, and he just had the ultrasound this week and I had to wait 3 MONTHS to get a surgery date from my diagnosis and by the time I had mine finally removed it was so full of stones and so inflamed it was on the verge of rupture!

Iran also agreed to a deal with 6 or so other countries limiting it’s nuclear capabilities to energy and not weapons in exchange for harsh sanctions being lifted yet even so this stupid country refuses to ease them, saying they don’t trust they’ll keep their end of the bargain, not even giving them a chance, wanting to be hostile instead of diplomatic( once again, Canada sucks) and my friend who had her brain tumour removed found out it IS cancer,afterall(after initially the biopsy said it wasn’t when they checked the fluid, but examining the tumour itself they did find cancer cells) so now she has to have chemo twice a week for 5 months and until now she’s never had surgery or even been in the hospital and she’s 41, and  I found out as well a Facebook friend’s fiance beats her up(and it isn’t the first time,either) he punched her and broke her wrist yet she refuses to leave, saying she loves him,can’t lose him, he “didn’t mean it”, and they’re going ahead with the wedding and I’m really worried about her! I was shocked and surprised too as he seemed so nice and they seemed so happy but I guess you never know. Today’s the American Thanksgiving,too(we already had ours back in October) and they make a much bigger deal about theirs than we do about ours, and in fact, for them it seems to be an even bigger holiday than Christmas!
