I've decided that my first post will be a rambling of mine about how hard it is to write first posts. I tried to write an intro of sorts but it made no sense to me so I stopped that nonsense.

I need an outlet for my thoughts and this is a good as any. I feel that by the time anyone reads this blog (if anyone ever does), they probably won't start at the beginning so kudos to anyone reading this.

I am going to write about my trying to cope with my health through crafting, baking, and general crazy thoughts. I don't really know what is going to happen with my self yet, re: lung transplant so I feel in a sort of limbo. I will know more after my appointment in July with the big doctors in Toronto. I realize this makes no sense to anyone starting to read this because you know nothing about me so background. I have CF, I may or may not be getting a lung transplant. I have been off work since February and have decided that to cope better with my boredom and general anxieties and possible depression, I should start a blog.

Actually, to be honest, I was skyping with my brother showing him some coasters that I've recently made for some friends and he told me that I should start a blog because 'they looked cool'. I said 'yeah I thought maybe I should do that'. He said 'yes you should, it would give you something to do'. I replied 'yeah ok' and he quickly countered that I would probably never actually do it.

Challenge accepted.

Hi Alley. I don't know if you remember me, one of the crazy Australians who visited your family at Christmas the first year that Gary, Helen, Esther and Jasper had moved back to Canada. We still remember and talk about the fantastic time we had with you all and in Canada in Winter. Someone posted a link to your blog on Facebook, so Leanne and I have been reading bits of it over the last couple of days.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through all the tests and uncertainties. Well done on sharing with the world. I hope it is helping you, too.

Yes I do remember that Christmas. We actually had snow that year! Thank you for your kind message and thoughts. It has been helpful to write things out as I try to process and work through every new situation.

I think the first real snowball fight of my life was on the way back to your place from church on Christmas Eve.
