Monday Musings



Let me start off with a little story.When I was 9 months pregnant with my second child I was at the doctor’s demanding that he ‘GET IT OUT’ because I was so uncomfortable. He said “let’s wait another two weeks and reassess”.I could have killed him.Did he give me a present to hold it in for another two weeks?NO!

So, if I was pregnant today (God forbid!), does that mean that I would have to hold the child in until I got a push present?Do you refuse to push?Sorry, I am going to hold this child inside my huge swollen body until I get a $2 million dollar push present! I read about one of the Kardashian’s and her new Ferarri.Ok, I do admit that I am not a fan of the Kardashian’s.I find that they are phonies who are only famous because they kept pushing their chests and butt’s into our faces for so long.I have spent my entire life trying to get rid of my big butt and they have ma…

The word of the day is icicle

The word of the day is icicle.
The bus had no heat this morning.Now when you hear “no heat” it can be someone whining that the heat isn’t blasting but the driver this morning confirmed when asked that we had no heat.The longest drive of all time!!! I sat there shivering and shaking and lamenting that one of my favourite warm pair of mitts was lost on Saturday.It could be anywhere between here and Massena.So sad. So, back to the no heat business.I am so glad that, for now, I can go into the office and crank up the heat.I am still wearing my scarf, socks and sweater but the heat is coming out of the vents and once my feet feel the fire it should be time to turn it down.

Today is moving day.We are moving upstairs to a new modern looking space.I will admit that I am getting too old for this stuff.There is a lot to be said about the old way of life.I’ll miss seeing so many of my co-workers while making tea or in the bathroom but fear not folks, I will take the long route to the bathroom when …
Seven daysuntil Christmas!Are you ready?If you are, could you help me? Please. Actually, I do have things pretty well under control. I have the wrapping started and the baking (sort of) started.

I even braved the Christmas store on Wellington yesterday.If you haven’t been there yet, you have to picture this lovely little house that has room after room after room after room of Christmas stuff.It is a bit overwhelming even for me.Didn’t find just the thing I wanted but then again, just because I can imagine something doesn’t mean that someone has thought of it…but they should.I saw this hydro meter on the way to the store. Kind of ironic having so much ice on a hydro meter that keeps track of how many millions you own to Ms. Wynne.Looks a bit like Alien doesn’t it.Sort of like Ms. Wynne.

 I need a tiny chandelier for the little house that Jonathan made.Every house needs one.I’m on the hunt.

I know you have all been wondering what’s been happening with the wife of the man with two wives.Sat…

Sheep, Polka Dots and Donkeys...

Nothing brings a smile like polka dots.
Two blogs in two days...looks like I'm back.

Did a quick run to the Rideau Centre after work and my oh my, the fashion...or lack thereof.I saw WAY too many asses.

All different colours and patterns.A guy sitting in the Nordstrom cafe had his entire ass hanging out of his jeans. The jeans started at the top of his legs. One (or at least I) can only imagine the horror of what tbe front of his pantlessness was like. All everyone walking by could see was his underwear encased ass. Why wear pants at all? But thank you for at least wearing underwear!!
Then there was the young man walking with his girl and is red underwear was hanging out.Seriously girl, at least buy the guy a belt. Enough about butts and asses. Maybe as the temperature drops their pants will rise.

Then there is the new shoe fashion statement.I could totally do this as I have a couple of pairs of shoes in different colours.

Thought of the day:can you/do you use white, see through garbage…

Admit've missed me.

Yes, I do own these beauties. Wednesday...half way to the weekend but so many hours left to go.Can cross cardio off today's list - I ran for the bus. So much has happened since my last blog. Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and now it is almost Christmas.Are you ready?I'm getting there…slowly.
The fam is going to Montreal on Saturday so I am working on my to-do list which will start after our buds Charlie and Eddie finish up their sleepover at our place.We are looking forward to doing something Christmassy with them before they head home…better put on my creative hat soon. After that I am off for a pedicure compliments of Jaan - as my feet bask in the bubbles I am going to bestow the warmest thoughts on you Jaan. Maybe I’ll put the Christmas tree up (well, into the tree stand. I love the smell of real trees. Then we can spend the week putting on the lights and decorations.

I have a story.Grab yourself a coffee/tea, a cookie, a banana or just put your feet up for a few minutes an…

Long weekend excitement

I am pretty excited that I have tomorrow off to start off the long weekend.

I am also pretty sad that the weather is going to suck and I may not get to go to the beach (for the first time all summer!)

But, I'll try to keep the excitement going at least for the next 8 hours to get through the work week.

I hope you all have some exciting, relaxing, fun filled plans for the weekend.

Some gym humour. Actually, this isn't me but there is a woman at the gym that likes to booty shake when a good song comes on.  Pretty amusing.

Who the heck does wall planks?  In jeans no less!  Why do wall planks?  Regular planks are hard enough, right?

HI HO, HI HO....

Letter of the Day: L

I just couldn't do it today.  Couldn't get out of bed.  Hit the snooze alarm 3 times this morning.  No way I could make myself go to the gym.  What  would this be called?  Laggard?

L'Exhausted...only way I could figure out to add an "L".

When I was finally ready for work I checked when the bus was coming and it said 3 minutes.  I could do it!  Nope, apparently the bus driver was a Lead Food Larry (2 L's there) and went by too early.  Hmph! ticked me off because I missed it and because I would have loved to have had a driver that didn't lollygag on my ride.

So what do you do when you have 12 minutes until the next bus?  Go back home?  Sit on the grass? Stare at your phone?  Nope, nothing like a nice brisk walk to log in some steps while waiting.

I have loved putting on my workout gear in the morning since I have been going to the gym before work and it made me sad to think of putting work clothes on today since I didn't hit the gym.  I decided to jo…
