Unfortunately, it’s raining today, which puts a big damper on the Canada Day Festivities!  But we will still probably make our way to the fireworks later tonight!!

Check out Oh She Glows cute Canada Food post!!


I have to be honest today… I’m not really in big blog writing mood right now.  I got some bad news yesterday, and while I try to keep my blog up beat, this has put a bit of a damper on me and making me feel a little low. 

I have been working since September (since being laid off from my job) with Employment Insurance, to get funding to go back to school.

I was approved for my funding and they were going to be paying for 70% of my life (including school) for the next 10 months while I was in school.

Yesterday I found out that they rejected my funding, so now with a month before my tuition is due, I’ve got nothing.    It’s not the end of the world, but it’s pretty heartbreaking because I have been working hard this year to get my funding.  (it’s been a ton of work)  They said they don’t see this often, but it does happen. 

I do know that everything happens for a reason, and I am trying to stay positive, but it’s been a hard year this year for school/work/family heath reasons.  So I’m just feeling a wee bit down right now.

I will be back after the weekend, hopefully back to my normal self!

I hope you all have a great weekend!!

  7. Happy Belated Canada Day! Hope there was a lot of maple syrup and...ummm...moose to be had for everyone ;)
    (I'm kidding! My fiancee is from Vancouver and we had a good laugh because I wanted to do something "Canadian" and I said "I'll make pancakes with Canadian Maple Syrup and what else?" and he says "Ummmm...we have beavers and moose!" so I say "Moose it is then!" ) hehehe
