It's been a long while since I last wrote on here and lots has happened in the past few months.

We went to Europe and it was fabulous.  I could live over there. And the coffee, so much better than the shit we drink here.

Feeling rather crappy lately, trying to sort my feelings out but I don't know how.  I am just tired that I always try so hard and work so hard, but it's never good enough.  That is one HELL of a feeling to live with day in and day out.  It's such a heavy weight on my shoulders.  I need a holiday for myself.

Had a third session with the massage therapist today and my shoulder/arm/wrist is starting to feel better.  The two knots in my shoulder and shoulder blade are pretty big though, those are going to take some time, exercise and better posture.  I used to do modeling and dance and I know posture is everything but dammit it feels good to slack.  Just have to tell my back muscles to supercede the pectoral muscles that always want to win and thus the slump forward, bad posture.

Oh well.  See, I write this blog because often I like to write down my thoughts just for my own sake. Funny, got a "Gay" comment yesterday which I find amusing. Really, then don't read it, Mmmhmm?

Tomorrow, going to Buffalo to do some shopping with Tera. Wooooo!

19 days until our European getaway.  Going to miss the two boys though, I don't know what I'm going to do with myself.....I know, they'll be in good hands but still, ya know?

They kids are going for a sleepover at my Mom's house tonight so that means tomorrow night when I go and fetch them, they'll be nice and wiped out from all the happenings over there. :)

Have a good remainder of the weekend. :)

Sunday, July 11, 2010

Well, hello again. It's been awhile since I wrote.

Left my old job approximately 3-4 wks ago, then had a week off in between and then started at my new place last Monday.  It's so much different than what I've been used to for the last almost 5 years. It's a refreshing change and I feel like I'm actually using my brain again.  I could certainly get used to this. :)

Yesterday we did our boat tour of the harbour with the TPS marine unit and holy shit that was so much fun. A 600 hp oversized zodiak.  It was devine.  :)  We're going to bid on that again if another package comes up at the St. John's Ambulance Silent Auction in September.

Not much longer for Europe.  I believe we're at 32 days left or exactly 1 month tomorrow until we head out.  That is coming much faster than I thought it would.  We still need to purchase some more Euro's and Pounds...not too many pounds though. 

Ran some errands with Jeff this afternoon and got our grocery shopping out of the way.  Went to Costco and bought a shit ton of meat for the next few weeks.  It's certainly different coming home 80% of the week to Jeff having made dinner.  I get in the door now at 6:30 which isn't the greatest but I'm not complaining.  It works for now.  I'll definitely want to play with my work hours in the near future...Maybe change them in the winter.  I am also on probation at work until October 5th so I have to do it most certainly after that.

Other than that, been battling a cold that just won't go away and it's rather annoying.  I gave it to Jeff after about 5 days, he didn't make out unscathed.

Anyways, that's all for now :) Ta-ta!

So the job that I applied for and heard back from 3.5 weeks later....After 3 sets of interviews, I got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My last day at work is this Thursday, which means I have all of next week off before I start.  See, I was smart and planned to have time off before I started my new job...didn't know how the last two weeks would go but surprisingly, it's been really good.  I got to admit, I'm sick of being taken out to lunch. lol

Anyways, that's it.  I called it - 2010 is/is going to be a great year with many things to look forward. :)

So what exactly have I been up to during all this time.....

I've done a second interview at another prospective employer and I'm hoping to hear something early next week.  Had a really good feeling about this from the get-go and the second interview went smashing.  I was on a high coming out of that meeting.  It was unreal.

I took today off to make for an extra long May 2-4 weekend.  Consequently, no camping this weekend.  Jeff's parents are still away in the States so they couldn't watch J's kids in order for us to go camping for the weekend.  Plus, May 2-4 weather is always, always dicey.  Sure, it can be nice and dandy down here but factor in we're traveling 4  hours north of here...yeah you can get every weather combination.  For instance, last year we had rain, sun, wind, rain, freezing race, hail, sleet and snow and temperatures varying by 30 degrees from the peak of the day to at night.  Last year, we bailed on the second last day....We tried to tough it out but eventually left at sundown, or just beforehand.

Alex came down last night and Jeff and him went geocaching for a few hours today while I steam cleaned.  Charlie, ever so helpful that he is, was getting in my way whereas Baxter found the bedroom and went and had a nap on my pillow.  Speaking of the pups, Sir Charles turns a whopping 3 on Sunday!! My how time flies, so many precious, happy moments with my hamburger.

Urgh I went and picked up Chinese when the boys got back around I feel like shit.  Ha, serves me right I guess.

Going to read I think, so tah-tah. :)

Sunday, May 9, 2010

So some new changes will be occuring on Monday....a bit of mixed emotion but I know it's the right thing to do, even if it's shitty at first.  Must look out for myself as no one else will, ya know?

Alex came down for the weekend.  Also have British relatives staying at my mom's.  Went out for dinner with all them last night at an English pub.. Was a good time.

Also, another positive note, EVERYTHING is booked for Europe shy of the Thalys train tickets from Paris to Amsterdam via Brussels, but that's only because their bookings are only available 3 months in advance, whereas the Eurostar I was able to book that at the 4-month mark.

Puppies have had a quiet weekend, they're just SO tired, it must be such a nice, easy life being a pup. :)

Last but certainly not least, Happy Mother's day to my wonderful mother.  You're my one of two best friends and my life would be missing something without her in it. I adore her to pieces and love her to bits.  Thankful for everything she does for me and us. :) <3

So my best friend is here again. *rolls eyes*  My patience will be tested, yet again, this evening. lol

Skipped yoga and took the wired bandits for a jaunt outside, hoping to tire them out.  Alas, when we got back, Charlie continued his ripping around the house like a little hooligan.  FAIL.  They're both calm.  For the time being. lol 

Some cute pics where we can all say "Awwwwwwwww" :)
And then on Monday, I had an allergists' appt to get my allergies tested once again (it's been at least a decade and a half or two since my last tests) and lo and behold, I'm allergist to all fruits and vegetables (fresh), but I can eat them cooked, bc the proteins get broken down in the cooking process.  I'm still going to eat salads but have to make sure that it's washed very, very good.  I seem to be okay with lettuce anyhow, by my judgment.  Want to see how horrific (and fucking!!! itchy it was and still is, 2 days later....)...

Did I mention that I'm still itchy??? lol  I am also still allergic to cats,dogs (pout - I'm getting a dane someday Jeff, come hell or high water, I WILL), horse and cattle dander..... birch and oak trees, grasses, mould, dust, yada yada yada. I knew all that.  Now I'm part of the privy club that carries around an epipen.  I wonder what the airport thinks about these things... Right, you have to wonder?

Anyways, goodnight :)

So I'm just sittin at home with Jay, Jeff and Tyler.. The girls are in Bradford at a Bridal Shower for their Godmother, Dina. 

We're heading up to Barrie shortly. Was going to put my deposit down for my dress for James and Dana's wedding but was told last night not to bother because to have them put on rush, it's an extra $25 dollars.  So lord only know wtf were going to wear now. Maybe something hoochie?  I mean, it's $25 extra, are you kidding?  Now we have even less time to find an alternative.  But that's okay, seems to be the trend here.  We're in the wedding party but seems plans have changed, so I no longer know what the heck is going on.  Will find out more today I suppose.  We're also supposed to make invitations today...100 I'm told, not sure how ambitious that is but we'll see. 

Pups are at Nana's house today with her boys.  They got groomed yesterday and they look just adorable :)  They spent the better part of last evening just lounging around.

Tomorrow morning, my plan is to go to yoga and then get groceries afterwards.  Hopefully Jeff is going up to Alliston tomorrow too.  Off Monday for an allergy test too, finally going to determine what I am and am not allergic to, finally.

Have a good weekend everyone <3:

Becoming more and more frustrated each day......the search continues but at least I still have a roof over my head, food in my belly and people that I love around me. :)

Thursday, April 15, 2010

And the search continues....I'm still frustrated, growing more frustrated daily.

So it goes....Thursday it is.  I should be more diligent when writing my thoughts down, this is supposed to be a therapeutic outlet for me and here I am, lagging ass.

This morning I had an interview at CB and I think it went very well.  I was talking with the two lawyers for just under an hour...We seemed to jive well, I didn't pick up on any subtle nuances or quirks..but let's face it, everyone has their quirks.  So now I wait and see.....I'd be willing to try it.  Perhaps I should adopt the attitude that I should move around and not get so comfortable... Maybe every 3-5 ish years, move around.

Just making dinner as we speak. J is playing COD, as his usual after work fix.  Hey, Congrats on your raise my love!!! :)

Anyhow, better get going.  I still believe that I must be the cheapest assistant at my work, I'm bloody sure of it.  Fucking frustrating to all hell.

Night :)

Happy Easter!

Soooo....I'm stuffed from just having returned from eating dinner out with Mom, Brian, Jeff and my Aunt, Mary at some italian place.  Yummy but I feel kinda gross now. lol

I've been browsing many blogs recently and have a few that I visit on a daily basis, but my page looks so lame to some of them I've seen.  They're so nicely layout and everything, I'm jealous...Do I have to be an html pro to do this?  Any tips?  

I'm planning on updating this blog more frequently, just been slacking as of late.  In the process of trying to find better employment that pays me what I deserve to be paid.  I wish this process was quicker because it's just tearing me apart.  It really blows going into a place every day angry and just generally "not feeling it".  I've checked out...So wish me luck on finding something soon. I can't wait for a new beginning and more money won't hurt either.

The boys each had a bath this morning so they smell and look just wonderful :)  Greg just stopped by for a visit and Charlie is currently a fixture on his lap.

Anyways, have a great weekend! Cheers! :)

Oh and went to Emma's baby shower last weekend and she was adorable.  She got many great gifts, but I tell you, that kid is definitely not going to be short in the clothing department. lol

Saturday, March 20, 2010

So today we're going for a trip to the airport to drop the parents off - destination Cancun, Mexico. 

We just finished having breakfast/lunch, although that was a fun task in itself because I had to play guess-where-the-dishes-got-put-away-to game. Jeff's mother yesterday, when she was here, thought she'd help by putting some of the clean dishes away that I had in the sink.  Holy mother of pearl, some things I couldn't find to save my life.  Me and my OCD obsessed brain was like AGH wtf!  I know she was being helpful but I'm of the obsessed mindset of just "please, leave it alone" I'LL put it away, please don't worry about it.  Just one of the quirky little things about me.

Later, who knows. I just hope a certain someone doesn't drop by.  I've never wanted to hurt someone like I do him, I just can't do it. I have no patience for someone that has this "holier-than-thou" attitude.  Get back off your high horse and come back down to REALITY.  Seriously, it takes immense strength to be in his presence, he's such a rude son of a bitch.  LOL End rant.
