When will this end..

As many of you know I am in the process of filing for my Canadian residency. But its so freakin over whelming.. just when i think its possible something comes up and i feel i will never be a resident.. yesterday i met with my lawyer for a little pow wow to show her all the paper work i have collected in hopes of filing everything by the end of April (with all the set backs i felt that my April deadline would be possible) and come to find out it takes 16-18 weeks to just get police clearance from the USA.... so that pushes me back another 4-5 months to file, USA are you kidding me!! I am so angry with you guys right now, Seriously you guys make it very difficult. Why don't you get off your lazy ass's and get some people in those government buildings that can actually work and start processing paper work a little quicker. Ugh I'm so frustrated!

Mexican Cheese Cake...

Today I made a Mexican Cheese Cake... people i think its something you gotta make. its super easy and tastes fantastic. Heres the link to the easy recipe.

Don't wear socks with holes...

When I first moved to Canada, one of the things that surprised me was that very few people wear their shoes in the house. Go into someones home and you leave your shoes by the door. I thought it was just a polish thing at first, but nope its everywhere, even the gym (which i have been attending regularly for the past 2 months) have just noticed a big fat sign in the front saying to leave your street shoes in the front and to have a second pair to put on indoors. Even at the tanning salon and the spa everyone that comes in leaves their shoes at the front.

One factor is undoubtedly the weather - when its wet, muddy, or snowy outside, you dont want to be tracking all that muck into your house or business but this "take your shoes off" rule also applies during the summer. Heres an example from last weeks b-day party I attended:
