Wow, where did February go? It’s been a while. I kept meaning to post something then something would happen to take my mind off it and I would forget. It’s been a rough month. To me, it seems like this year may end up even worse than last year. We have had storm after storm through the middle of Feb, almost every few days with tons of snow. At least my car is new and tires are good snow tires with studs.
Earlier in the month, I had a third repeat pap test come back abnormal so now I am going to Halifax on Wednesday for a colposcopy which I am not looking forward to. I need to bring someone with me in case they do a biopsy, but the city is not very safe right now as there are both the Brazil and UK variants of COVID found in the central zone. Even so at least our number of cases is still fairly low compared to just about anywhere else in the world.
The weekend of the 19-21 was supposed to be a good one for us, we had a long weekend and stayed at a motel in Yarmouth in their executive/honeymoon suite with a jacuzzi tub. It was supposed to be a late romantic 3 nights in a motel an hour and a half away as we can not leave the province.
Instead after the first night, Saturday morning, we woke up to my mom calling to let us know that there was an early morning house fire and tragedy in Digby that morning and that 2 people we knew fairly well had died. A 65-year-old mom (that my mom went to school with) and her 31-year-old son who had autism (who my brother went to school with).
After talking to her she convinced us to stay as there was nothing we could do at the moment and she wanted both of us, who had planned on 3 nights basically in the jacuzzi lol to just try and enjoy our stay, but she also did not want us to find out on Facebook, which is increasingly an issue in this little town and I am sure everywhere where you can access any sort of social media.
Yesterday, the last day of the month we were told Nan’s (my grandmother) brother has been transferred to critical palliative care for his cancer and a friend of the family that had Hodgkin’s lymphoma 4 years ago may no longer be in remission. Let’s just say fuck cancer.
