Hmm…. or Hmm? My Wood side of the family is struggling with mourn and grief. It’s hard to lose someone in your life. My grandpa passed away July 1, my aunt passed away August 9th, and my cousin passed away just last week. Dealing with grief is an hard. It takes away your ability to go through the day and run your daily errands makes it almost impossible, which leads to depression. Bleh.

But anyway…..

IMG_20160902_003815My aunt, who passed away on that date. It was an emotional service when it was being held in Winnipeg. I couldn’t go back up north with the family because I had to travel to The Pas.

My aunt was a good person, despite of what was going on in her life she couldn’t control, she had a good heart. She always helped out the needy, always helped out those who couldn’t help themselves out. Every time I would run into her, she would say something encouraging or something positive. I never saw her mad or angry. The last thing she said to me was she loved me very much.

And this bloody mess! This is what I had to take when Bells Palsy affect my face again. It was heck I yell ya’. And it’s not a pleasant feeling. The week before, I was going through a lot of migraines and headaches. With those migraines, It was H.E.C.K!!!! I don’t think any living human being should have to go through that. But unfortunately, I had too. I didn’t see the Dr. until way later. The following Monday, I went to the clinic. The Dr walked in and asked what I went there for. I showed her how my face was (because half of it wasn’t moving at all. I had no control over it), and she asked me how I was feeling. The look on her face was….I don’t know. It scared me because of the way she reacted after I told her all my symptoms. Other doctors walked in and saw me and they all agreed I had a STROKE! bahahah. Can you believe that? They were all worried that I had one and that was why my face was doing what it was doing. Ugh, seriously, I couldn’t do anything because of the pain that was going through my head and the nausea. ugh. BUT……I was sent to the Health Science Centre Emergency where I sat around for 5 freaking hours. Oh man, did they ever poke me with their needles everywhere. I was given a lot of medication for pain and other shiz. BUT……after a few hours of waiting for my results, it turns out it wasn’t a stroke. Thank goodness for that. heheheheh. This was why I had to take a lot of steroids.

But I’ve relocated to The Pas. It’s nice here…I can’t complain. The sucky thing about though is that people have been telling me it’s really hard to find a place here. We’ve been applying EVERYWHERE! Not only that, I’ve been applying for a job almost anywhere I can hand in my resume. I still have faith and hope!!!

Yup, and there’s my update for …September.

 

August 10, 2016

You’re probably wondering how I’ve been doing. Well, truth is everything has been going down hill for me. At first you think life is great and you don’t need to worry about anything. But something in the universe just decides it wants to fuck up your life and just watch you suffer and see how you’ll handle it. But yeah, everything isn’t fine. Maybe it’s my drinking that’s making it feel like this way. Or maybe people just hate me. I don’t know really what it is. But I’ve decided I’m going to climb under a rock and stay there……yet again.

But anywho, I just wanted to post random images. :D

St. Johns 14 1-6

“14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”

Theres mama, putting flowers on her dad’s grave. We knew his time was coming to an end because after we took him to grace hospital emergency in winnipeg, we were told he wasn’t going to make it.

On the 28th of june, mama, nookim and noomsoom flew out to winnipeg for noomsooms medical appointments which was dated june 29. My brother and I drove to the airport to go get them. My mom was worried because noomsooms well being was a little off. They had said that hes been asleep for a few days and hasnt really eaten or drank anything within that week. When they wheeled him out of the airport, i saw noomsoom in his wheel chair, his eyes were closed. Mama said “thats all hes been doing…”. My brother ken and I had to carry him into the vehicle because noomsoom was unable to do anything for himself. Finally, we were at the hotel room. mama and i drove to walmart to get a few things to eat and buy some hygiene products for them. It was just about 2 hours after they landed. We got back to the hotel room, nookim said “im scared for him. Hes usually not like this. noomsoom said he wants to go to the e.r because hes not feeling well” sure enough we drove him to the e.r. At the grace hospital. We went at 9 in the evening. We also didnt wait that long for him to get a room. We sat around and waited for his results from an xray, blood work, ultra sound, and other techy stuff. They found out that he had pneumonia and that it was worsening and whiteblood cells were growing. Mama and I went back to the hotel room for a quick snooze because we were really tired. Nookim didnt want to leave. But that night while noomsoom was laying at the emergency room, he kept talking about the bible, the word of god. “Its true what the bible says. Do not be afraid. Believe and have faith….” He also mentioned that his mother was there to pick him up. he also said that he kept seeing 2 of his desceased kids (my late aunt sandra, and my late uncle kevin). He said alot of things….one of them were “ask for forgiveness, and he will forgive you”.

on the 29th, i didnt go back to the hospital because I had to attend an appointment with my case worker. I didnt arrive until later that afternoon. When I walked into the room on the 5th floor, he was laying on the bed. I was in deep shock. noomsoom looked different! His skin color changed and looked very pale. Nookim then told me that he wasn’t going to make it. I couldnt help myself but cry. It was hard. His breathing was also abnormal. We just sat around him and spend as much time with him. It was the same on the 30th. We just spent time with him…as much as we could.

On the 1st of July, we received a phone call. I checked the caller ID but didn’t recognize the number. “Hello, is this Cynthia???” I said “hold on”. I knew right away it was from the hospital. My mother burst out crying…..nookim jumped out from the bed and kept saying “what what??? What???? What!!!!!!” We were told noomsoom passed away at 7:25am. It was heartbreaking. nookim wasnt in her right state of mind. I saw her grab a bunch of junk and stuffed it in her purse. I just got up, got ready as quick as i can and we left.

it was heartbreaking seeing noomsoom At the hospital bed. He was at peace. The nurses told us that he died peacefully too.

we knew his time was coming, we just didnt know when. its still hard for my mom because she lost her dad. Its still hard for me too. Everytime they flew out to the city, i would stay with them because i knew nookim and my mom couldnt lift him up. I was always driving him around in his wheel chair Too. Im glad I was always there.

But i guess i should leave it at that. My grandpa….will be missed. But never forgotten.

May 17, 2016

December 8 2015 seems to be the last time I’ve updated. Only because there was something wrong with the website. I honestly didn’t know what was wrong. This whole time I was wondering what was happening, and I figured it has to do something with the spam everyone’s been getting on their homepages. This went on for quite sometime. After while, I started ignoring my page and not do anything about it. Finally a week ago, I sent an email to Knet service saying that I couldn’t log into my knet homepage. I explained in my email that it wasn’t working. A few days later, I got an email from the knet service people saying that the only problem was that I should “change my password”. I thought to myself that maybe it really was the password that made my homepage go bizerk. For a few years, it was always asking me to change my password (lmao), I immediately changed it and figured my homepage would work again. But NOTHING! I was getting a little frustrated, so I sent ANOTHER email saying that I already had changed my password and was still getting the same messages like “Your user name is not registered” or “This user name already exists”. So yada yada yada, I finally decided to log on to my homepage and vola! I’m in. Eeeeeee :P

Anyway, I’ve moved to the city. I got tired of living in the reserve and wait for nothing. Honestly, the only reason why I stuck around was to look for a job there, but no…..there wasn’t even any job openings. Well, there was, but I went to most of my interviews and I tend to get really nervous and start talking gibberish. So I finally said to myself that I should just move. I got on the plane and flew here.

Ever since I moved here, I asked myself why I didn’t do this sooner. There are so many opportunities. Opportunities won’t just come around to you. I realized that myself. I had to get up and just chase after what I wanted. So now I have all these things I’m doing. I could possibly attending Culinary Arts just like how I’ve always wanted. I’ll know by the end of June on what will be happening. So keep your fingers crossed!

There were a few downsides when I moved here. I LOST MY PRECIOUS CAMERA! Man, was I ever feeling down. So….no more new images to show. But hopefully, I’ll be able to get another camera real soon. Always have faith!

Anyway, just wanted to share a few things. Good Night!

Anyone know whats going on? It seems like the majority of knet has been hacked. Stupid knet. I can’t log into my knet email either.

Of course it’s spam. But what can we do? I just noticed on the dashboard where we edit our posts and shit, you notice there’s a new “plug-ins” menu.

jkhkjhkjh

“Akismet” is a new tool that blocks spam apparently. I signed up and activated it and I hope it really does block all the spam we’ve been getting on our blogs. We’ll see when I update the next time.
