Happy Humpday! A recap of my busy weekend in pictures!

So my weekend was a busy one, perhaps the busiest it has been since I began the pet sitting/dog walking part time job that I started nearly two years ago this May.  Saturday I was going for about 8 hours straight and Sunday, while I was at the gym and showered over an hour and a half period, I was out doing visits for 12 hours.  Eighteen visits Saturday, fifteen on Sunday.  So needless to say I've been tired ever since and then back to m Monday to Friday job downtown on Monday morning, bright and early.  It's no surprise that I caught a cold.  *sad face*  There have been boatloads of sickies at work, which is annoying.  Some people have been coming in deathly ill or they'll be sick on a Friday (at work), spend all weekend at home trying to get better, come back to work on Monday and they're still sick and then think it's a fine time to go to a walk-in clinic.  For reals?  Shaking my head.....
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Just some of the visits from this past weekend.

Being deep and shit...

Things I'm realising as I get older:
  • You can be a beautiful person on the outside, but you can be a fucking ugly person on the inside.
  • What's important in life isn't the STUFF you acquire or kissing ass to people when it's convenient for YOU.  It's more than surface level/temporary satisfaction.  Here's a quote that is just what I'm talking about:
 “I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never, ever forget how you made them feel.”
- Maya Angelou
  • As I get older, the less and less I give a fuck about people that bleed you dry and suck the life out of you.  I'm done trying to be there for people and be their friend when THEY need it and then they're fucking gone when I need them.  No siree, I can't be bothered anymore.  Life is too short to invest energy where it's not reciprocated.

On a completely different note, I'm really missing Downtow Abbey, The Walking Dead and Girls.  Other shows that I'm waiting for to come back are Son of Anarchy and Homeland.  Oh yeah and it's FRIDAY!  TGIF

I'm going to be crazy busy this weekend pet sitting/dog walking.  So I'll check in when I can. ;)

Their awesome new leashes to match the collars they have by Wagz Wear.  Their collars have my phone number on them just in case they escape from my clutches (which Charlie did last Fall at a HUGE offleash park and we had thought we lost him for good.. Long story short, he found his way all the way back to our car and waited for us to return, all the while Jeff and I were frantically looking for him - bugger lol) :)

Easter Long Weekend!

I had a friend come down for a visit on Thursday night, which was nice. Friday morning we went up White Feather and Heronview. Of course the highlight of the road trip was seeing all of Lori's, her beloved four Leonbergers…
Below is Kramer, 185 lbs of fur and love :).  The second Leo is Emma getting in on some of the love. She's one of his daughter's I believe. 
Later Friday night we went to my moms for Easter dinner, which was delish! Kelly stayed for dinner then headed back home to the 'Shwa. 
Saturday morning I went to the gym (duh! Lol these days I'm at the gym 7 days a week if I can) and then I came home and we went down to the All About Pet Show near the airport.  I didn't take too many pictures because I was too busy gawking at the animals or petting them.  If Jeff lost me, he didn't have to look out to find me but rather down because I was often on the floor petting this dog or that dog. 
Isn't this Persian adorable?  He was just a baby, if I recall his owner said he was just 9 months old but glorious.  :)

I'm not a fan of snakes but took some reptile pictures nevertheless.  Here's a rattle snake and a tarantula.

Cute little Chi's

Some baby goats and a young cow (she was super soft)
This is what I look like in the morning lol  Here's an alpaca. 
Got home on Saturday and took the kids for a nice long walk.  This walk put Charlie on his ass for two days.  Poor boy looked wrecked.  Maybe it was too much?  Who knows.  But he's alright. :) 

My massive quads and day 20 of #yogatothecore - Tittibhasana or firefly pose.

And some random ducks trolling down the street on Monday morning lol
