I found something that will allow me, a wheelchair user, to live anywhere, so we’re moving.

My husband and I have become distraught with our home situation. The things that sold us on our condo, on the ground floor, wood burning fireplace, downtown location, and the ability for hubby to smoke his cigarettes in the enclosed patio space, have been taken from us via the strata council, or,in the case of living downtown,have not been comfortable for me emotionally., so we’re looking for a new place and putting our place up for sale. I’m very excited to see some places on Monday. We’ve picked 4 places in 4 different locations around the city, and I can’t wait to start the process because of the product in the video below, we’re looking at places that are a little bit higher up than the first floor!

If you are a wheelchair user, like myself, and would love to live anywhere but the ground floor, I highly recommend you watch the video closely. I’m particularly looking forward to the 2 floor penthouse on the list that I never thought I’d be able to consider!

And it’s officially winter

I live in the warmest city in Canada . During the winter, it’s rare for us to get snowfall, let alone of any real depth. So, imagine my surprise when I awoke this morning ,and looked out the window to see this!

It won’t last long, though we had a bit of a cold snap, but temperatures are on the rise shortly, and it’ll be too warm for snow by weeks end.

Xmas came early for Graham

I’ve been meaning to replace Graham’s old kitten tree ever since he grew out of it, mere months after purchasing. Back before we knew that he’s a Maine coon mix.

Just as Graham the kitten grew into the handsome cat,so must his kitten tree grow. And grow it did. It went from nearly halfway up the wall to this

His eyes lit up, and it only took a second, and he’d conquered the apex.

He’s been in need of more exercise, and we couldn’t change the square footage of our condo, so building up made sense . I found this on Amazon, and it wasn’t horribly pricey. It only took the hubby 10 minutes to assemble, and it’s quite sturdy. Sturdy enough to deal with 20 pounds of Graham jumping onto it with some speed behind him.

Happy HoHo Graham

Tyler Bucket reacts to my neck of the woods in British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦

Since he’s so impressed with the area, I would like to extend an invitation to you, Mr Bucket, to visit British Columbia, specifically Vancouver island. We have something pretty cool that I’d love to show you . It’s outdoors, and yet I can do it in my power wheelchair 👩‍🦼. And I can guarantee it’ll spark a childish glee.

Watch “Disability Etiquette: How We Can All Be More Considerate in 2023” on YouTube

And we’re back with our lovely British lady to discuss disability etiquette. Things like shopping, parking, and toilets even hotel rooms, Gem takes you from what each thing is, why it’s important and necessary for someone and why you shouldn’t use it.

My butt feels better too!

I’ve been with my current lift chair for over 5 years now and unfortunately so has Graham the tenderizor

It’s beyond time for a new chair!

So I got one! Actually two ,the other one is on order and will have heat and massage built into the chair. Once that arrives, this chair becomes the hubby’s.

One of my issues with the old chair was that it didn’t recline far enough. This one will get flat, but I won’t but I’ll be working on it.

This is what loving your fellow man looks like.

I never intended to wade into any of the antisemitic nonsense spewed by Krazy Kanye but then this YouTube short came up. I love Jennifer Lewis and here,she shows true love for her colleague in entertainment. I sincerely hope he sees it and does as he’s told, asks for help.


Taking a break

Graham has the best work ethic and he takes his job VERY seriously. What does he do, you ask 🤔

Graham is a tenderizor. Uses his manly claws tomake sure that anything upon which I sit is soft under my boney butt!. The damage you see here is only the tip of the iceberg. I really should have this wheelchair reupholstered. But then all of this beautiful work will be gone and this wheelchair doesn’t go outside, so 🤷
