Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- Thanks so much to Eilidh from Eilidh Horder for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award. (And if you haven’t already, check out her emerging blogger post)
- My guinea pig Oreo has finally gotten over her UTI. Poor little munchkin has had a lot of minor health problems over time, but she’s a total trooper, and she can tolerate just about anything if she gets cookies as a reward.
- The friend from a previous life that had followed me on Instagram a few weeks ago liked one of my Insta posts the other day. I know she doesn’t have negative intentions, but it still feels a bit big brother is watching.
- I have been getting a ton of presumably spam phone calls this week. I don’t answer if I don’t know who’s calling, but these have all been the weird numbers you know right away are spam calls. Canada has a “do not call” registry, and supposedly if your number is on that list telemarketers aren’t supposed to call you. As if that would actually work. Spammers used to leave voice mails if you didn’t answer, so you could at least report the to the do-not-call people. They seem to have wised up and stopped doing that, so without answering the phone I have nothing to report.
- I’m so grateful to have a doctor who’s very reasonable. I saw him today, and suggested maybe we should try increasing my stimulant (Dexedrine) dose. Not a moment’s hesitation, and it was done. He knows that if anything I tend to use less Dexedrine than prescribed, so he didn’t make a stink about it the way some doctors would. I like that.
- After being stumped for the last 6 weeks about how to get my blog store to not ask for unnecessary personal info, I’ve finally managed to find a plugin that takes care of that. Always nice to be able to check off something that’s been lingering on the to-do list for far too long.
- I found out that my strata is doing a special assessment for next year, of which my share will be $2100, and there will be even larger assessments over the three subsequent years. Oh, the joys of homeownership.
As guests on my blog this week, I had:
