You will no longer see me on facebook

Happy Holidays (Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkahto my friends, family, and readers across the globe.
Honestly, I've been thinking a lot about the public sharing of the details of my life on facebook.  
Not that I have anything to hide but it makes me feel uncomfortable.

Equally on my mind: I could be spending the time I would spend creeping facebook, farting around with sims/family feud doing something productive, creative, relaxing, or playing with Audrey (although right now the majority of my wasted facebook time is while she is napping)... 

So - I've decided to cut my ties with facebook.  I wonder what will come of all my photo albums.  

I will continue to make random, awkward posts to twitter,
 send pictures to google photos and
occasionally upload videos to youtube.  

I will probably continue to blog when I feel inspired to do so or have something to say.

Keep in touch with Audrey and I via e-mail or leave a comment on my blog.
Come for a visit, or give us a telephone call, or a video call. 
My Skype name is kelly_poo_poo.

Things are great here, we are very excited for Miss Audrey's first Christmas.  She's bright and comical.  
After tomorrow Anson has something like six days off for the holidays.  Yay!

Health update: Cardiologist declared my heart to be healthy,
 and is arranging a referral to the neurology department for a ct scan.  
I'm still feeling woozy and as if I'm two drinks in, but not fainting as much.  

Wishing you all the happiest of celebrations and a fabulous 2012.
Hugs and kisses to my nearest and dearest.
My big New Years Resolution is to make better use of my time, starting.... now.

It's beginning to look a lot like a crazy December!

Our Christmas tree looks lovely.
My sister, Tara, came over tonight to help us decorate it.
Candy Cane Hot Chocolates were enjoyed.
Anson made a nice broccoli spinach and pepper pasta for supper, followed by cinnamon toast made on homemade cinnamon bread.  Audrey's sleeping peacefully in her crib.
Life is good!

Baby girl is rolling around, reaching, grabbing, eating cereal/fruits/vegetables, laughing, making faces, and almost sitting up on her own.  She's teething - her two bottom teeth are way in and it looks like the top two are next to come in :)  Audrey is such a joy.

I received treatment for post-partum depression from the Reproductive Mental Health team at the I.W.K. Hospital, and I'm quite happy to report that my head is in a much better place now.  I'm really enjoying being a Mum to our lovely girl.  

I want to write a bit about my health to keep my dear friends and family up to date.

I've been feeling light headed and woozy (as if I've had two beer), and frequently had fainting episodes, for the last month and a half or so.  My doctor has me doing all kinds of tests and so far all my ecg/ekg/echo/blood/pee tests have been normal (my family will be pleased to know I have no nutritional deficiencies!).  He has suggested that we look at treating my "anxiety" - I don't really agree with that diagnosis as I am not feeling panicky or nervous, or on edge at all.  Any anxiety that I'm feeling is because I don't know why I'm feeling woozy.  I'd be glad if a cat scan ruled out anything neurological, given my history with the pituitary tumour.  I am seeing a Cardiologist next week and hopefully he will be able to get me that referral to a neurologist.  Apparently unrelated, I've been fighting this bronchitis since October and am on my third round of antibiotics.  Also I need an impacted wisdom tooth removed after the two root canals are done. There's another private thing too, that I won't get into here, but holy crazy December, right?!  

Good thing I'm a tough old bird...

We are planning on a family trip to Trinidad sometime soon, once we get the Doctor's go-ahead to fly.  The thought of smearing Audrey in sunblock and swimming in the ocean together is such a nice thought.  She loves the water!  

Here's Anson and I being idiots

I'll try to keep up with this written diarrhea in the next few weeks.  

I hope you have a fabulous Christmas!

Yours truly,
