How is it Monday, AGAIN!?! So quick?! So I started writing this on Monday, you see and now it's Thursday.... Jesus

God it's Thursday and I'm still trying to hammer out an update since Monday.  Another weekend down (last weekend albeit) and it was an uneventful one.  I have to admit I've been an asshole the last week and a half in particular because of my toe/foot bullshit, but it's finally starting to heal.  This, of course, was not before I almost had a temper tantrum on Friday night after work because I was ready to take a fork to my foot and scratch away, all in the name of relief.  I think what I was prescribed Friday night should have been given to me all along, along with the antibiotics, but hey, I'm no Doctor.  This leads me to Tuesday.  My Boss was not impressed with how angry my foot was looking so she said that I must go to the doctor.  You see, I made an appointment for later that day at 5 p.m. but I decided to go early.  I went to a spinning class first (shut up - my foot has been fine this week spinning), then to a clinic around the corner where I waited maybe 20 minutes.  Ended up seeing this wonderful gentleman and he actually picked my foot up and thoroughly examined it.  I got more meds and a referral to get my leg ultrasounded to make sure that I didn't have any blood clots in my leg.  Hoofed it around the corner to the Ultrasound clinic and had this lovely goop squirted all down my right leg.  I have to say it was pretty neat watching the screen and the sonographer pic-stitching my femoral artery... and then turning on the sound to listen to my heart beat and pump blood through said artery.  Of course you can't ask them a damn thing because they're not a doctor and qualified to tell you.  Anyways, turns out my leg looks good and no signs of clots.  Good!  So I guess as it stands now, I'm going to have to watch my foot and keep an eye on it if it takes a turn for the worse.  It's just such a pain in my ass though, let me tell you.  The one nice thing is that I'm back at the gym this week.  I did spinning classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and my foot/toe was good.  Today I did some outdoor yoga and tomorrow, I'm not sure what I'm doing but I'll figure it out tomorrow morning.

Anyways, apart from the foot drama, I'm well.  Jeff is doing well.  He went to cross fit once this week and has been a cripple ever since.  So happy and proud of all the word and effort he's putting into it.  It'll pay off in the end :)

I think we'll go to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning then maybe head up to visit Alex up in Orillia.  Sunday I've got two dog walks that I'm doing as a favour to my petsitting job boss.. the woman working this weekend can't make those two visits on Sunday so I'll do them for her.  Monday, who knows.  It'll be a nice relaxing weekend I hope.  Ciao! :)

Love me some Friday's!

So I had a bit of a meltdown upon coming into work tomorrow.  I just feel that everyone always gives a fuck more about other people, if someone is sick or hurt.  With me, I feel like people just shrug it off and it just sucked coming in after having been off for 3 days, at home, stuck with my foot elevated and doing Epsom salt soaks every two minutes.  You see, I've had this pesky huge ass blister that just would not heal...  Moving along..  Oh and to boot, I haven't been to the gym since last Thursday (!!!!) and it's not just killing me physically but I need it mentally.  It just makes me feel good all around and I feel like I'm a better person when I'm working out and taking care of myself.  So it's just been frustrating, especially this week.

Last Thursday evening, my friend Marah and I went on a boat cruise of the Toronto Harbour doing yoga with Orlando Batista and Cynthia Funk.  Both really awesome people and really soulful, calm, lovely people.  Just the exact kind of people you want to surround yourself with.

After my yoga boat cruise with Mares, I had my petsitting/dog walking weekend.  MANY dogs were visited last weekend, many new ones but also the usual suspects that I see more frequently, such a Kody, Quincy, Chelsea.

The most human-like cat I've ever met, Spencer.

GORGEOUS Persian :)

Charlie with his pal, Alex. :)

 That's all for now folks!  Have a great weekend! Might pop in at some point. :) xo

I feel like home life, work life, truly no one gives a fuck about me.  I'm just the girl that gets shit done, forget about her feelings and how everyone makes her feel.

Been off for three days with an infected toe/foot! ARGH

Sunday morning thoughts...

So I originally started writing this from the gun club... We went up north yesterday morning for Family Day at the range. But then.... The day escaped me and its now Sunday morning lol. 

I'm 8:45 am and I am sitting out on my balcony enjoying a coffee, debating on whether to go to a yoga class this morning.. I think I will go, actually.
I miss by dogs (random I know) but they're at my moms this weekend since we were going to be all over the bloody place. :( 

Some pictures of the two home I helped out petsitting this past week, some of us messing around in the car, at the range and my new kicks I got on the way back from the range yesterday. So stoked because I've needed new ones for ages but just haven't gone out there and tried anything on. 

I should be off! Who knows what today shall bring!! Ciao! 

Score! Very much needed new kicks!!

Humpity hump hump.... Day..

So my weekend didn't amount to too much shenanigans going down.  I was alone on Thursday evening after Jeff left to head up north around 9:30.  Friday, I had work and all that "fun" stuff, then later that night, after doing some cleaning and purging, Greg, Alex and Frank came over for a visit.

Saturday, I woke up early and went to the market with my mom and step-dad, walked around, saw lots of dogs, we saw a 10-week old baby St. Bernard - see below.  Afterwards, we went to have a coffee on Main Street.  After that, I went home to see the children for a bit and then got picked up and went over to mom's for the afternoon and evening with the dogs.  Took advantage of her washer and dryer and did our laundry, all the while the boys had a blast frolicking in her big back yard.  Later that evening, I went home and crashed. 

Sunday morning, I woke up and walked my ass to Yoga in the Park with Lululemon and then I stayed for some acro yoga afterwards, which was a lot of fun. :)  Following that, went home and had a shower and by the time I was finished, Alex had come back from a weekend up at Stu's cottage... We went grocery shopping and then I prepped dinner while waiting for the man to come home from up north. 

Monday, our long weekend stat holiday, we went to Vaughn Mills to do some shopping and then some geocaching.  Low-key weekend but I don't mind one bit.

Jeff went to cross fit last night and tonight so he's back on a roll.  His bike is back home and fixed, which makes him an even happier man.  Tonight and tomorrow, I'm helping out at my pet sitting job.  Some "employee" gave her notice after my boss went away on a 3 week holiday, then she's been flaking and blowing off appointments ever since.  Ummmm, you just don't do that.  Especially if there's a living, breathing thing on the other end that's depending on you to be there for them and let them out to do their business. 

As for this coming weekend, Saturday is family day at the range.  Oh joy! lol  And Sunday, hopefully the weather pans out and we can go boating up at Alex's parents. :)  Hope everyone is well! xo

I just LOVE this: 
We want to make the world a better place
By slowing down our frenetic pace
By doing so we make a space
To open up to Love & Grace

Beautiful, isn't it?  This picture is from Wanderlust out in Whistler

Apparently it IS comfy to lay upside down with your head one way and your body going another lol

This is what I have to say about haters.  Fuck em!

Little bundle of joy we saw at the market

On my way to yoga in the park Sunday morning

And another kitchen injury.  I assure you that it looks much worse than the pictures let on.  I almost chopped off the tip of my thumb!!!!!

So that's annoying.  Plans have changed a million times and nothing is going down this weekend.  Alex has chosen to head to Stu's parents and I refuse to spend the weekend with his grouchy-ass miserable wife.  I refuse to put myself in that position.  There are few people that I really, really dislike in this world and she's one of them.  No thank you, but enjoy Alex. 

Kind of annoying that everything fell through!  More tomorrow!
