Ending Of A New Chapter

I started this blog to replace my former blog Mad Serenity. The purpose of this blog was to document the journey of Chad and I, especially the immigration process. Well, as in every blog I start - I pretty much sucked at keeping up ... But I did want to make at least one final post.. To document a very important event that happened last week...


I am now, officially a permanent resident of the United States of America, without conditions. It felt good amazing. Something I spent so many hours and so many tears on - was finally complete. Of course I am still married - mostly happy. (ha ha) but our relationship is fairly similar to any other. My life has taken a different path now. Rather than it be all about Chad and I. It's all about the family. The job. The dogs. So - "Chadella" while the foundation - is no longer the main focus.

I may start a new blog. I may still post here. But I am not going to feel guilty if I don't - because this particular chapter has been read. :)

Peace Out.

I don't know who I think I'm surprising as I am pretty darn sure no one reads this blog and if they do - they're total freaky stalkers. Stop stalking me you loser! ha!

For reals - I'm back so soon! Naturally, I have absolutely nothing to comment on. Well actually I do! Halloween has happened, as has the Part 1 - Of Haven's Birthday!


Chad beat me up for Halloween. KIDDING! lol That's make up sillies. The plan was to scare the bajebus out of the trick or treaters. We decorated the yard, had scarey music and even bought a fog machine. But due to lousy weather, we had a grand total of 16 trick or treaters. Lame.

You can see the decorations by Clicking Here!

Haven's Sweet 16th Birthday was on Sunday! We had a family thing which pictures will follow when I upload them from my camera. This Friday she has invited friends from school (that's Part 2).

Okay truth be told - I'm not in the mood to write. But I remembered so I thought I would check in.

May The Force Be With You.

I know, I suck.

I think I either need a more interesting life - or a more interesting theme/hobby to write about because coming back here frequently - or more frequently just doesn't seem to happen. I read some blogs that my friends write and they're really interesting - how do I become interesting?

Life has been swell lately *knock on wood*. Sure we've have some moments of ... displeasure but for the most part I would say I am happy. *Gasp* I know I totally just fucking jinxed myself but I DID knock on wood. Even if it's only pressed particle board - it counts right?

The knocking on wood thing began for me in University. I was President of the Athletic Council for Bethune College at York University. We were days away from winning "The Torch" which is like the Stanley Cup for intramurals at the University. So everytime I or someone around me mentioned winning, we knocked on wood. Some folks did so ... reluctantly, but they valued their life and didn't want to piss me off.

By the way? We won The Torch :D

Life On The Home Front

Healthy-wise, Chad has been okay. *knock on wood*. He's had a few days where he's been less than wonderful but he's functioning. The good news is he finally has medical coverage of some sort under the VA - so that is a definite plus. He has a meeting in about a month with the doctor to hopefully get a physical and begin some sort of determination as to what could be going on with him.

Financially, times are difficult. Medical bills we can't pay, a $600 Immigration bill to pay and just life in general gives me no option other than to try and push the stress out of my mind. I just need to keep hoping that there is light at the end of the tunnel and everything will work out.

Work is super busy right now and it's back to school time in a week and a half! Woo-Hoo! Only stressful thing is coming up with the money to Furnish the kids with new clothes and supplies. Sigh. It never ends! :D
