Psst! it’s SoCS

Psst! Over here!  I shouldn’t talk about money, my mom told me that was wrong but I’m so excited I’m bursting!

Yesterday I got a notice from CRA telling me what my monthly OAP will be and it was way more than I thought! I swooned with happiness! I had to keep looking at the number to make sure it was true!

I had just got my car back with it’s new $1800 exhaust system. Ouch. Picked up my mail on the way in and there it was….. Service Canada. drum roll

I won’t say how much because, as I said before, my mom said that’s in bad taste. But It’s more than I’ve been making these years at Sobeys and I can live on it easily.

I’m working all weekend and I haven’t been this happy going into work in forever. Today I have my favourite shift: 10:00 to 3:00 and tomorrow 9:00 to 3:00. No cleaning floors!

I’m so freaking happy today! I love Canada!


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “psst, or any other attention-getting noise or word.” Find a word or noise that you’d use to get someone’s attention, and start your post off with it. Enjoy!

  1. I am so glad for you….see all that anxiety and for what? You never know what’s going to happen in the game of life…you just have to learn to bear what appears to be burden and see what follows. Again, I am so glad for you.
    …and jealous. I’m living in the divided states of ‘merka and my future appears bleak (esp. reagarding retirement) but…I’ll keep rolling with the punches ‘cuz, you never know what’s going to happen. 🙂

    • Proving once again it’s useless to worry. A misuse of imagination. I know how you feel, I was hired at this job at 61 years old and did NOT want to work. Even though its been tough, in the long run the job was a good for me. And I made it to 65!
