Story time: I had part of my toenail removed surgically

Yes, you read correctly. But let me start from the beginning. About three weeks ago I had been cutting my toenails as you do and some how I guess I cut the corner of the nail too short and skew.

My Maternity UIF Submission with Mom's Link to UIF agency

I’ve had to claim maternity UIF benefits twice in my life and I’ve got to say it’s the most irritating process to have to go through. Any mom who’s had to claim will tell you the same.

Story Time – Our Wedding day

Story Time - Our Wedding day
