Getting on with life! by Liz Saunders

I can’t believe two weeks have passed since my last blog. During the cruise, when I was in so much pain from my arthritis, I promised myself that when I returned I would get on the phone to my hand and foot surgeon and make appointments.  Well, I like to keep my promises to myselfContinue reading “Getting on with life! by Liz Saunders”

It all boils down to customer service! by Liz Saunders

The trip is over.  I type this sitting on the floor of the plane because we’ve got the best leg room ever  right beside the emergency exit.  But I’ve never seen this much leg room, it’s awesome.  One of the best things of this trip. The ship was quite impressive compared to the tug boatContinue reading “It all boils down to customer service! by Liz Saunders”

The Cruise – the Beginning

Welcome to the Carnival Freedom.  Within minutes of being on board, a waiter was rude to me.  Unbelievable!  I was so stunned at the time that I didn’t react but I will be talking to guest services…for sure! Unfortunately, Monday I pushed my body way too far so my hands and feet are shockingly painfulContinue reading “The Cruise – the Beginning”

Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders

In preparation for our vacation, I made a trip to Riverdale Homeopathy on the Danforth to pick up some Calcarea Phorphoric.  This is the most amazing stuff that Witchy Woman suggested I take for pain relief for my arthritis.  The one thing I know about Florida is that while there’s a Dollartree, CVS, Publix, WalgreenContinue reading “Homeopathics, Rx and Cuba – Who knew? by Liz Saunders”

On our way to Fort Lauderdale…No Wait, Make that Montreal by Liz Saunders

 It has been a very interesting start to our vacation.  First thing this morning, I heard from daughter Siobhan – my computer would not connect to the internet.  This is a serious issue as she’s looking after The Virtual Alternative while I’m away.   I think it might stem from the fact that yesterday IContinue reading “On our way to Fort Lauderdale…No Wait, Make that Montreal by Liz Saunders”

An interesting month… by Liz Saunders

Where did the last month go? Back at the beginning of September (I know, that was 2 months ago) I signed up a new virtual client, who was actually someone for whom I had worked as a subcontractor for a colleague, a few years ago.  Great fun, booking appointments, talking to lots of people onContinue reading “An interesting month… by Liz Saunders”

And the journey continues….by Liz Saunders

It’s now been 17 days since I took the B.C.  I had a meeting with Witch Keila on day 12 and she tells me that based on certain incidents over the first 12 days, it’s working.  For the record, despite my threat to Google B.C., I have restrained myself. I mentioned in a previous postContinue reading “And the journey continues….by Liz Saunders”

B.C. plus 9 by Liz Saunders

You will recall that 9 days ago, at 6:20 a.m. (in accordance with Witchy Woman’s instructions) I took my dose of B.C.  I was hoping to report back on changes or experiences but there’s been little to report. I had no idea what to expect – which is probably a good thing because I haven’tContinue reading “B.C. plus 9 by Liz Saunders”

B.C plus 3 by Liz Saunders

Wow, I did not sleep well Friday night.    Sometimes my Restless Leg Syndrome actually affects my back – don’t ask me how – and I end up with back twitchies.  Not sure if I was over tired or this has anything to do with B.C.  In any event, I slept on a golf ball forContinue reading “B.C plus 3 by Liz Saunders”

B.C. plus 2

Nothing much seems to be happening so far, other than I finally caught the cold that’s been chasing me all week. Not sure if no obvious change is a good thing or a bad thing, but it’s a thing. My left thumb might not be as painful as it has been – or is itContinue reading “B.C. plus 2”
