Welcome to April

Well, this year just keeps getting better and better.

Sadly On April 1, 2014 at 2:10PM my awesome guide dog Noah was put to sleep. The hard was that I received a call the day before to let me know that although he definitely was sick, he was doing ok, not great, but ok. Then the next day, April 1st he had to be put to sleep.

James and I had just finished joking about Noah and I was remembering the first day I got my boy. I took the call pretty hard even though I knew the call would come sometime before he reached his 5th birthday. However much I knew it was coming, I still didn’t want that call.

my awesome Prince Noah you will live in my heart always. I miss you terribly. Rest in peace my golden boy!

Now, lets switch gears to a lighter note.

I am now registered for my summer courses at Carleton University. I’ll be taking Childhood in the Global Context from May to June and then July to August I’ll be taking a course in Canadian Studies. Ha, I keep forgetting the name of that course.

I’ve had a chance to communicate via email with my May to June instructor, and she seems pretty nice. Although I’m nervous as hell I’m looking forward to class starting. Now my july to August instructor is MIA and have no idea what to expect.

It’s challenging now learning Carleton since I’m learning it with a cane, but if it wasn’t for learning parts with Noah and already being comfortable about getting around I’d probably hesitate more and nervous about getting lost around there, lol. I mean Carleton is like a small city. So much to learn and so many ways to get turned around. But OMG, I’ll be sooooo glad when I have that dog by my side again!

I still wish I could start this year overhand change the events of some things, but onward I go to see what else is in store.


  1. Nope, I’ve had it there since I started my blog. You’ll only hear her though on the main page. So somehow you ended up on the main page when you’ve heard her, ha!

    I didn’t want her on every page cause then she’d be annoying instead of cute, lol.

  2. Ok then. Is that a new addition? I’ve never heard her on there before.

  3. lol, isn’t she adorable? I’m assuming you’re asking about the sound you hear when you go to my main page? That’s actually my daughter when she was 2.

  4. Who’s that little kidlet? Once they stopped making me jump, s/he sounds cuuuute.

  5. Heya Carin. Guess that makes us even. I keep meaning to keep up with your blog too, lol.

    Thanks for thinking of me. I’m doing a little better this week.

  6. Aww darn it. Meant to go find your blog again, but was slow to do it. I’m thinking of you.

I look forward to your comment. Please keep it respectful!
