Spirtitual Reading

Last night I went to a spiritual reading by two Native American sisters.  It was very cool and a lot of my family came through, some of the messages I still need to sort through.  They brought up things that only I would know , like the making of jewellery out of Joanne's fingerprints. I am excited to see Theresa Capputo in June now, of course I am not expecting a reading from her as there will be way to many people present, but it will be fun to see her regardless.

Psychic Mediums

Tonight I am going to see two sisters who are psychic mediums.  I decided last minute to go, it also involves some meditation so I am looking forward to it.  Maybe I will get a message from a loved one, maybe not, either way it is something to get me out of the house. I am meeting up with Jen who was in my grief group last year .  I went to that group after the death of my mom as I was having difficulty with it.  The group was small , just 4 of us, and we all bonded over the 8 weeks and Jen and I keep in touch which is nice. Tomorrow I will fill you in on the experience

This and That

Yesterday was 3 weeks since I have gone wheat free.  11 days since Joanne has passed away.  Everything seems to be difficult, I feel unmotivated and lost.  I suppose this is normal but who knows.  I don't want this to be a whiney post so I will move on from the whiney stuff.

I am going out today to buy a Magic Bullet so I can make smoothies, I think that will help me with my cravings for something sweet.  I treated myself to a piece of chocolate last night, dark chocolate with 85% cocoa in it which is what the Wheat Belly book recommended.  It was heaven , I hate dark chocolate but when you have not eaten anything bad in 3 weeks it sure tastes great!

Yesterday I picked Ash up from the kennel so the house is back to normal with all 3 dogs together.  Lync had an injury while I was in Thunder Bay, his right shoulder.  It is proving difficult to keep him and Ash from running around and playing, I don't let them out in the yard together and stop them from their normal tug of war game.  I might take Lync to a clinic in Calgary that does rehabilitation on dogs just to make sure he heals.

That is all that is happening here , boring I know

Joanne


On Friday April 15, my sister Joanne passed away with Debra and I by her side.  She fought hard these past 5 years and her fight was finally over.  I am still in Thunder Bay and her Celebration of Life will be this Thursday April 21.  Last night we had a family dinner over at my niece Sherri's house, at the dinner we were presented with gifts that Joanne had arranged to be given to us after her passing.  They are beautiful lockets with the inscription " Love You, Always & Forever"  Even in death my sisters kind heart continues to show.  What an amazing person she was and the world is a sadder place because she is no longer in it.

Day 4

4 days into my wheat free lifestyle and I am doing well.  No cravings and actually not as hungry as I was while eating wheat. So yeah for me !

Yesterday I found out that Joanne is looking at only about 2 more weeks. I have booked my flight home for April 22, if I have to change it to earlier then I will.  I am still not dealing with it, meaning I have chosen not to think about it at all, I'm afraid what might happen if I do.  I have dog sitters in place for the boys so that is a lot of stress off my mind.  I am so happy I went home in February as I was able to have quality time with Joanne. She was hospitalized shortly after I left actually.
