Westjet Airlines Suck!

So here is the total break down of why i’m annoyed as hell today.

 

I go to this even every year called ” Kinetik.”  It is a 3 – 5 day long industrial music festival which use to happen every year in Montreal.  This year it got moved to Toronto so they had a better venue… then it was cancelled due to “Unknown” issues.  That is a little annoying, I have waiting 2 years to go back ( Last year I was pregnant ).. and this year it gets cancelled permanently.  BAH.  Sad but not really pissy off worthy.. no what is, is the stupid policy of westjet airlines.  I am a mother of an infant.. I don’t plan on going anywhere plane wise for a long time.. yet according to westjet because I’m actually a good planner and like to have this planned out in advance instead of leaving everything until the last minute… I’m screwed.  They not only want to charge me 80$ for cancelling.. but they won’t give me the remaining sum back on to my credit card.. no.. they want to put my remaining money into westjet credit instead..

so not only am i out 80$.. I am out the other 600$ because I don’t have the time to go on any vacations.  This was my one trip that I have been planning all year for.. and that’s it.. I’m not going anywhere else, I’m staying home and being a mother and I’m getting charged 600$ for that?… What the shit is that about?.  West Jet is freaking stupid.  The flight isn’t for another 1 1/2 months.. I’m cancelling way in advance.. and they want me to just surrender 700$ to them?

You think they would help me out here, instead of treating me like some stupid idiot.

Westjet is robbing me because an event I love so much is permanently cancelled…. WTF.

Proof that I shouldn’t be doing school

So I’ve been waiting and waiting for my English work to be graded so that I may move on to the next module in my course… it’s been almost a month since I’ve uploaded it and I haven’t even heard from the teacher with him saying he’s backed up.  So waiting and waiting… and finally I get annoyed enough to send an email off to my teacher asking why he hasn’t graded my stuff yet.  Turns out that the computer essentially ate my homework.  Something went wrong in the upload and now the teacher has to flag it and get the entire drop box reset.  Yup… I can actually use the excuse the internet ate my homework.. how wonderful is that.. lol.

I think this is the world telling me that I shouldn’t be doing school work.. that I should be doing something more productive with my time… like… baking 🙂

Yukity Yuk Yuk

So I have a morning ritual, it goes something like this…

1.  Get up and Get the baby out of the crib

2.  Change Baby

3.  Play with baby until 9am

4.  Make Breakfast

5.  Feed Baby

Instead last week my morning went like this…

1.  Get up and get the baby out of the crib

2.  Change Baby

3.   Play with baby until 9am

4.  Make breakfast

5.  Discover Baby had gotten into the diaper pale.

6.  Spend the next hour cleaning up poop from everywhere including all over the baby.

It was awful.  In the 10 minutes it takes me to make breakfast in the morning, she managed to get into her diaper pale and pull out a poopy diaper.  Then she proceeded to what I can only guess is play with it and eat it.  She had poop on her face :S.  It was one of the grossest things I have ever had happen after becoming a mom, and I pray to god that it doesn’t happen again… I really don’t want the smell of poop taking over my house again.. or to ever see my little girl covered and poop while smiling up at me.. yuck.

Now for all of those who ask, isn’t that bad for your baby?.. Here is the answer I can come up with, possible.  My little one ended up getting sick shortly after doing this, could be coincidence, could be because she ate the poop.. all I know is that she caught some sort of mean stomach bug that caused her to have sleeping and eating problems as well as caused vomiting.  It wasn’t terrible vomiting, but it was vomiting non the less so I googled about babies eating poop because nothing else in her diet or daily activities had changed and we didn’t interact with anyone that was sick.  I got mixed answers on the net about if poop was bad for her to eat.. some mothers said it was gross but fine for them to do it, and others talked about rushing the child to the doctor because it’s really really bad for them.  My over all conclusion is it’s possible for them to get sick from it, but not all babies do.  My daughter ate poop from a diaper that sat in a diaper pale with old dirty diapers that had been sitting there for 1 to 2 weeks.. where as a bunch of babies that have eaten poop have just managed to yank their diaper off and tada eaten what they found inside.  So perhaps my daughter got sick because of bacteria that was growing due to the other diapers.. or maybe it wasn’t even the poop at all, again I can’t say for certain.  So if your baby eats poop just monitor them, I took my little one to the doctor and all they said was keep her hydrated and watch for a fever.. so if your child does eat poop and get sick, just up the fluids in their diet and watch out for a fever, other than that there is nothing you can do.

That is mommy advice for the day.

Talk to you later 🙂

Homework To Do

English : 3 Modules = 18 Assignments + Reading 3 Books

Photography: 6 Modules = 23 Assignments = 3 Presentations + 1 Diagram + 110 photographs

 

That is exactly what I need to get down by April 15th.  Think I can do it?  Perhaps if I didn’t have a house to clean, parties to plan, a daughter to raise, and the need for sleep.  Guess I better bust my ass for the next month.  I’m sure I’ll keep you all posted with how horribly I’m keeping up with all my homework.  *sighs*  Life is so busy, I don’t know where my time goes, but I’ve figured out it hasn’t been to homework.

Tomato Soup – Homemade

Not sure if anyone will like this recipe, because the only person I had to test it out was someone who will eat just about anything.-giggles-

Anyways, I hope at least a few people who try this out will like it… I’ve never made a recipe of my own before.  If you do try it out, please let me know how you liked it, even if it was disgusting 😛

Where is the Weed Tea?

So I had this passing thought, and I wanted to ask the world out there if i’m crazy or i’m a genius. I could be both, i would accept being called both.  First off I would like to say that I do not do any drugs, I don’t judge those that do partake in certain drugs, but i do expect everyone who does to do it responsibly and within reason and limits.  That being said, here is the thought… where is the weed tea?  I hear the argument all the time that marijuana is not a drug it’s a herb, and all that other crap to try and convince people it should be legal, and for certain reasons i agree.. but i’ll come back to that.  If weed is a herb, than it should be able to be turned into tea like all those other medicinal herbs.  I’ve heard of people smoking it, and eating it… but i have never heard anyone mention drinking it.  Does anyone actually use one of those loose leaf tea balls and make pot tea?  I’d think that it would be doable if it as herbal as people tell me it is.  No i’m not interested in Mary Jane tea, I happen to dislike the taste and smell of pot and don’t suggest to anyone to try it.  It was just a random thought that occurred to me, has this been tried and it just failed?  or has no one ever thought to have some tea with there happy brownies?

Adding to this thought, because it was mentioned above.  I do believe that pot should be legalized, for many reasons.  Top reason is once it’s legalized we will stop using up resources to put pot smokers and dealers into jail, and use the resources to put the more harmful criminals and drug dealers into those same jail cells that are now empty.  Second reason, if it’s legal we can tax it, if we can tax it we have more money going towards helping our cities pay for the things we really need, like more school buses and properly maintained roads.  I’m not saying that we should make all drugs legal, but weed is one of the safest ( in most cases) drugs out there, it’s on the same scale as caffeine or ginseng.  We let anyone who wants to stay awake, or just enjoy the taste to but an energy drink like red bull or monster at our local convenience stores.. but if they want to mellow out or just enjoy the taste of pot we make them go to parks or alleys where it’s more likely for something unsafe and terrible to happen.  We will never be able to stop people from smoking pot, but what we can do is make it legal, charge a price and a tax, and put an age restriction on it.  No that one stop every single person who isn’t a certain age from smoking pot, kids have a way of getting their hands on things if they are determined enough, but at least we can make that small difference of putting a deterrent on it.  Those are just my two cents.  I could be wrong, i could just be talking out my %@$, but there you have it folks.

Pot tea and legalization.

Homework Blegh

One of the many joys of doing school from home is that absolutely everything you do can be considered homework.  I usually am one to enjoy homework, you get to do it all by yourself, in the comforts of your own home and you don`t have the pressure of having to finish it in 1 hour; which if i recall is the length of a single class.  Down side is, not all homework is fun.. especially not my english homework for this week.  I have to write a thousand word essay on “People around the globe are impacted by the choices that we make as individual consumers.”  It’s going to be a very long and boring week in the school department.  Plus side is that I get to balance it out with photography homework, in which i have to make a slideshow of the history of photography.  Woot Woot.  I love photography, so this one should be a lot of fun.  I’ll be sure to post a link when i have it all finished.

The Begining

It’s an interesting time to make my first post, but if i start putting off the blogging already I’m doomed to having this blog fail like all the rest.  I obviously can’t let that happen, so here we go 😛

The crazy universe is trying to tell me that i’m either doing too much, or I’m not doing enough, because it’s been throwing some major curve balls at me.  I just faced one of the hardest things I have ever had to face in my entire life, a sick baby.  I thought that babies were hard sometimes and easy others, but I have discovered a whole new level of hard.  A baby that can’t eat, and doesn’t sleep well equals a very tired, stressed out mom.  Trying to find different ways to help her breath through her nose long enough to be able to down 4oz of formula was even harder than figuring out how to make her hold still while trying to put close on her.  To make it even that much harder, I have been sick with an unyielding cold that has left me zombie like for the past few weeks, I keep claiming I have the plague.  I can be pretty pathetic when I’m sick, and I have a crappy immune system so I’m sick a lot 😛

Continuing on… This is also my month of mourning.  I have suffered from a large amount of loss in the months of February in the years past and I have turned February into a month of mourning for those I’ve lost.  It’s drawn out and I know that people would suggest I move on instead of mourning year after year, but I mourn those that I will never forget, that i should never forget, not those that have no place returning to my thoughts again and again.  So here is to a new beginning for me, to honor those that don’t have the second chance that I’m gifted with.

Here is a playlist for those lost.  I know that most of you will appreciate this ❤
