were into 2017 by a bit

i am so sorry to have left you in the dust my 2-3 followers that i have. I havent been that busy i just have other ways to blog such as tumblr which makes me wonder how the heck i have been able to stay here and makes me think i should leave this blog because i have more blog followers there than i do here. Im still thinking there are lots of viewers here but maybe more there? i really dont want to move this blog or close it.

I started this blog back in 2004 or so. I left it unused and then in 2006 found a real name for it and called it livinginbanffnow.blogspot.com and used it as an active daily dose to talk about the town and then when i decided to move home id call it living in ontario now and its been like that since 2008 or so.

I dont think i am gonna close down my blog (this one most likely) ill just add that you can see more up to date blogs on tumblr. I think its darrenvox.tumblr.com and its got some great posts there and i stated that in the last half of 2015 or start of 2016 and i hoped to blog as much as possible


thanks for viewing this blog over the years, even if you followed. And what i miss so much about the blogging thing is the MEME's like the 20 things that are in youre room or where are you? and stuff

anyways ill talk to you all later

why the long time?

it seems as if my living in ontario blog needs some updates. I am so sorry i haven't updated  lately, its either because im busy or not busy and i havent had alot of time or have forgotten.

Whats new you ask? not much. Im keeping busy and enjoying the end of the year,  as we inch ckoser to the last day of the year. This year isnt gonna be the best for me, i lost my mother 9 months ago. Sure my days are better and happier but any thoughts or her or when i think of times when mom was there i cry.

What i just said isnt new or big, that happens to everyone whos lost someone, wether through an accident or a heart attack etc. Its all matters of the heart that when someone dies, sure you will cry and sure you will have good days after and the thing is youull never stop thinking of him/her in a sense like you and someone else over a loved one dying.

There are times though that catch me off guard, when i see a pic on a computer screen that shows mom and i doing something like hearing the news that i was gonna graduate, a few years ago, still makes me cry, thats not new, we all do. We just dont cry whole heartedly like we did the moment i heard the news.

So that in conclusion is whats going on here in ontario, theres no snow here yet and i dont know when it will come, last year it was 12 degrees and warm and we bbqd from the front deck as we listened to christmas songs, still then mom was with us that time!!

anyways theres an update for this blog
