I'm a mom of two beautiful girls trying to get healthy in order to be a good role model.

Long time no blog

Whew. I know it's been a long time. Sorry!

Update on my cat. She has something called fatty liver. It means that for some reason or another (stress due to all the furniture removal or work being done at the house or my other kitty Phoebe eating all the food) Chloe did not eat for a couple of days. After a couple of days, her body started living off the fat in her body and liver problems started. Apparently when they have this condition, they no longer have an appetite and slowly starve to death. It would have cost $1000 for an ultrasound, biopsy (to confirm diagnosis) and then a stomach tube inserted. Fraser and I opted not to pay that amount as we just bought a new house and have a child to think of. Our only option was to try and force feed her until her liver started working again and then she'd hopefully start eating on her own eventually. Well, I am happy to say that as of Saturday, Chloe started eating on her own! She has her spunk back as well. Although I am waiting for a "I told you so" from Fraser (who really was the one rejecting the treatment) I am just so thrilled that my kitty is on the mend.

As for my friend, she did end up getting her period (which was 3 weeks late), the doctor had scheduled an ultrasound for her and she is going to be keeping that appointment. She says she still has cramping and is wondering if maybe she has cysts or something like that. Her appontment is in the next 2 weeks so hopefully all goes well.

Our house still has not sold!


There is my house if anyone wants to see it! I don't think the pictures make the house look as good as it really is. We've had lots of walkthoughs though so I'm hoping we can sell within the next month.

I'm so happy to hear Chloe is doing better! Good luck with the house, there are tons of townhouses up for sale around our neighbourhood that just aren't selling...

Yeah, it's so frustrating. I keep panicking that I'll have two mortgages that I will have to pay (that i CANNOT afford!). We do have time on our side at least. Our closing date isn't until April 30th.
