Every thought you posted and then logged on to find out, you in fact DID NOT?

That's what happened to me... I could have sworn that I posted yesterday, but alas, the evidence is clear I did not.

So what would I have posted about yesterday anyway? Maybe that work is crazy busy and I am trying to get us, the kids and the dog packed for 3 separate locations for the weekend. I fit in a quick massage yesterday, after therapy but before picking up end of year teacher's gifts.

This year I went with a simple mini album, a rogers gift card for movies and a bag of microwave popcorn. I had no creative genius this year.

That crazy girl child of mine will not stay in her own bed for the night, she wakes up repeatedly between 2 and 4 and comes in wakes me up and goes back to bed. It is driving me crazy. After the 4th time last night I decided to cut out her commute and sleep in her bed. Since she has opted to sleep on the futon matress on the floor. (she discovered we were storing it under her bed, we use it for sleep overs).

It worked out well since she didn't wake up again, it was hot in our house and my DH wanted to cuddle all night and he was snoring like a blast furnace.

Good Times, Good Times.

So tonight I am going to try to get some playdate cards done with our phone number on them so the Bug can pass them out to his friends tomorrow on the last day of school.

Plus finish packing for the weekend.

Weekend fun

Let's see

We had t-ball, set up a tent in our basement, shopped for birthday presents. baked bread, iced cakes, made salad, went to a campfire party, LAUNDRY, and went to a birthday party.

Partied it up with baby button (my niece)

Just a generally fun and exhausting weekend. Boy am I glad I have work today.

Looks like it will be an incredibly busy week at work again too.

Tonight I have to do manicures for my other nieces due to Grade 8 grad on Wednesday!

Zoinks I'm going to be tired!

Also packing for another bike trip with hubby. Our 7 year anniversary together.

Say it with me aaaaahhhhhhhh!

What a week it's been I don't know if I am still recovering from my weekend at Dover or what. I am so glad I didn't have any activities for the kids this week because i was in bed at 9:30 every night and I'm still tired.

Atleast, the peanut slept through the night and did not come in to say hello at 2:30 AM.

I think she was getting cold (because she kicked all her covers off) so then she would come in to our room to snuggle for 10 mins and then go back to her bed to go to sleep.

Tonight we are camping in the living room after having a pizza picnic. This is our first step into actual camping. We'll see how it goes. Then we are off to t-ball tomorrow morning. Hopefully the peanut does not throw up in the car. Then good friends of ours are having a bbq party at their new house and Sunday we are celebrating father's day and the June birthdays for my side of the family. I had better get some cards made and some shopping done CRAP!

So it will be a busy weekend and then I have to start packing for our trip to Windsor next weekend.

Hope the rain holds off for my run at lunch today. PS I survived the long legged partner yesterday. I had to stop a few times but we are a pretty good match.

I learned I need to run faster. Practice makes perfect.

Have a great day!

Switching it up!

My regular running partner is gone to a conference for the rest of the week. So I decided to switch things up a little and will be running with a BOY today!

A co-worker who used to sit across from me has also joined our little running club and his regular partner is not running today either so we decided to give it a try.

We'll see how I do considering he is 6'2" and I am 5'4". That and he is used to running without a break and the longest I have run consecutively is 5 mins.

Hopefully we can compromise and both of us will make it back alive!

Not much creative stuff going on lately...I guess I've been a little SWAMPED at work.

I really have to start studying for my Life License exam soon. I will have to see if I can extend my deadline to write. I really did not focus on it and it has snuck up on me.

That's about it for now. Tracey has a great post from yesterday about why men are so willing to let their wives do everything (lazy).

You may find it interesting.

Big Thanks to JENN I still feel great. Although I'm sure this noon hour run is not going to help.

DAY OFF!....not really

Originally I was supposed to be off yesterday to recover from my weekend away. But there was a change in the bug's therapy schedule that put his session right in the middle of the day and it's a real pain in the ass to try to get to work when it's right in the middle of the day.

So I switched my day off.

Up with kids, bug off to school
Groceries with the peanut
upack groceries
Shower and wash hair
pick up bug
set up dinner for tonight
prepare bags for tomorrow
go to bed earlier
Have to be at work before 8AM tomorrow.

I'm tired already.

Wicked Biker Chick!

You know how sometimes people will do a small meme with questions and answers? One of my favorite Q&A is Name one thing people would not know by looking at you? This is always a hard one for me because I figure I'm so transparent. I where my heart on my sleeve, if you ask me a question I will give you a straight answer. I mostly speak my mind and say what I think, usually asking if you REALLY want to know what I think.

But apparently there is something about me that people can't tell by looking at me.

I'm a wicked biker chick!

Yes it's true. Hubby and I just returned from our 6th year attending Friday the 13th in Port Dover, ON. This "event" started in 1981 when a group of guys who ride motorcycles decided to play hooky from work and go for a ride and stop and have dinner in a little beach town. They enjoyed themselves so much someone said we should do this every Friday the 13th. This past Friday I shared this little town with over 40,000 motorcycles and probably close to 100,000 people.

I can't tell you how many people were surprised to find out how I was spending my long weekend. Just goes to show that everyone can have a little mystery about themselves.

Hubby and I packed up our camping gear all week and loaded our shit on the bike on Thursday night to head into Port Dover. We met up with about 50 of our friends and spent the evening drinking and shooting the shit, generally just catching up on what's been going on for everyone.

We had a great weekend doing our own thing. Love it!

Although I am tired and wish I had a few more days off. And it's going to take me a week to de-program the kids from being at my brother-in-laws. Small price to pay.

I survived!

And I'm glad I went because there was desserts left over from a lunch meeting at my office and I didn't feel bad about having a Nanimo Bar! YUMM!

Now I know I have lost my mind.

It is almost 30 degrees outside and I am about to go for a run at work. Then come back in and attempt to work for the rest of the afternoon.

Nuts! Just nuts!

We'll see if I survive. May have to investigate a treadmill.

I'm no woosie!

Kick ass and chew bubble gum and I'm all out of bubblegum!

I'll let you know if I survive!

I made up my mind. After a chat with 2 girlfriends both at opposite ends of the spectrum. I decided to try to graceful withdraw from current interview situation with possible employer.

It comes down to timing. I am not able to commit to 40 hours a week across town when so much of my life is currently at home.

Although my options for a "career" are obscenely limited where I am right now. I guess I just have to realize (as much as I hate to admit it) that the career track has to hold for a few more years while I take care of the "bidness" at home.

I can pretty much come and go as I please and my employer is really understanding. So for right now that has to be enough.

Although I have a twinge of guilt for sacrificing this right now, I know in my heart that it is the right thing to do. I suppose I haven't truly figured out what I want to be when I grow up. Coasting here for a little while longer, although seems a shame and a waste of my perfectly amazing talents, is going to be the way it is for a little while longer.

I had made a list of my perfect job awhile ago and I know I can get closer to those things on my list.

So maybe 10% of me is disappointed. 90% of me knows good things come to those who wait. (The Dutchess will roll her eyes at that remark)

Baa... Still thinking

This so sucks!

This is a good job opportunity (notice I didn't say great) I feel like something better will come along. I had made a list awhile ago of all the things I was looking for in a job and somehow this opportunity seems to fall short in every catagory.

It just doesn't feel right.

But then my cerebral brain says, "You fucking moron take the money and run."

such a dilemma...

More scrapbooking completed last night, a great kit from my favorite store. For other great ideas and contest and stuff check out their BLOG

If I could get my computer working properly I would post a photo, but alas I am not that technically inclined.

Looking forward to T-ball this weekend. Hope all our friends will be there.
