Oh Canada

I am officially starting on my second week in Canada and I miss my Hubby and Miss Sophia terribly. The first week went rather smoothly other than the fact that they have now cancelled my father’s heart bypass surgery TWO times. Stinkin Canadian healthcare system. I used to think that Canadians had such amazing healthcare but I guess times have changed. Truth be told, I would like to karate chop it in the knee caps if it had some. Where is that Kung fu panda when you need him?

Any who, we are keeping our fingers crossed that they do not cancel his next surgery date this coming Tuesday. Mother Nature must be pretty angry about the situation too as she has gone and gotten her panties in a knot and is punishing all of Alberta with winter like weather. I am not even exaggerating. Some places only two hours away from where I am got snow today and lots of it. Really I shouldn’t complain as it gave me a good excuse to go shopping at the most amazing mall in the world  West Edmonton Mall to get something warm to wear. ( if you have some time click on the link to see Wikipedia's break down of one of the coolest malls you will ever see)

All in all, other than missing Greg and Miss Sophia more than I ever imagined (thank goodness for Skype), it has been nice to spend so much time with my family and friends. I am lucky that I was able to pack Jennie B. Goode Collars up and bring the shop with me as I could be here for at least two more weeks.

So due to the fact that I am here because my Daddy has a sick wittle heart I decided to search out some cute heart items on Etsy and share them with you.

  1. Wow Jennie, what a lovely surprise! Thanks so much for featuring one of my items alongside those of some of my most favorite Etsians---I'm thrilled and flattered:D!
    Hope your Dad's surgery goes perfectly---my Dad had bypass surgery 3 years ago and he's good as new. Best wishes to your father for a speedy recovery.

  2. I am hoping for the best for your Dad, Jennie, and that the Tuesday surgery is a go this time... and once that is taken care of, that his recovery is swift, amazing and easy. I can only imagine what your family is going through though. This has got to be tough on all of you for so many different reasons. Sending you big, huge hugs!!!

  3. My best wishes to you and your father! Get well soon!
    Thanks for featuring my heart plantable tags on your blog!
    Happy to meet you :)
