I’ve been a bit out of touch with blogging lately…

I was going to post something lame saying basically nothing at all but let me spare you the boredom. Instead, enjoy some pictures:

You can have my string rolls if you want them

Every time I go to start a new blog post I write a few lines and either save it as is and close it up, never to return to it…or I delete it and think, “Ah, I’ll do it later.” I don’t know what’s got into me lately but this lack of blog-ability has got to end eventually!A lot has been going on, I’ve been busy.We’re looking after my parents’ dogs while they’re away on their Panama Canal cruise.James and I went out for dinner on Saturday for his 29th birthday to a Thai place…and the grossest thing ever happened.Well maybe not the grossest thing EVER but it left me feeling like I was done before I may have wanted to be…I bit into the last of the spring rolls and there was something in there that I couldn’t bite through.I thought it was one of those little see-through glass noodles or whatever they’re called…because it was long and stringy (literally, although I didn’t know it right away…)…but it seemed strange it would be hard to bite one of those.So I pulled it out of my mouth to assess …

Certain toxic individuals

In the past I learned a whole series of relaxation/meditation methods.I KNOW I should draw upon those now when I am in serious need of calming down…BUT it’s so hard to be mindful when you’re busy dwelling.I KNOW I’m supposed to put myself into the bigger picture and realize how insignificant things are so as not to fret over pointless things…BUT sometimes that’s so much easier said than done.Part of me is able to compartmentalize it all and not be bothered because, really, when it comes down to it I just want to yell out Who effing cares!Not this person!But the other part of me is boiling right over…………………………I am so SICK and TIRED of the goings on at my work place.
I feel like I’m being beaten down every day that I go in there or have contact with certain individuals.I am taking a vow at this point in time to be fairly silent in my work.I DON’T HAVE TIME TO TALK TO YOU SO EFF OFF AND GO STEPON SOMEONE ELSE’S TOES FOR A CHANGE, HOW ABOUT…????On a happier note, after leaving early today …

I love my sweetie-pie husband!

It has been an interesting couple of days.Sorta.Kinda.Not really.Haven’t been up to TOO much, but accomplished some things.Had a ‘surprise’ visit from James’ mom and her significant other yesterday…Their flight to China got screwed up due to some mechanical difficulties so they were re-routed through Vancouver.So we had them for dinner last night.Now they are in China and his mom will be coming to Vancouver April 30th before heading home to Halifax in mid May…Today consisted of waking up at 5am unable to fall back asleep, getting up till 8am till I could no longer stay awake, and “sleeping in” till 11:30.I know a lot of people like a ‘lazy Sunday’ and it’s not that I don’t – I just hate feeling like I’ve wasted half the day on a Sunday when I have to go back to work the next day.To cheer me up, James took me out for lunch.Nowhere fancy, but I could just taste a veggie burger from White Spot, so that’s where we went.Finally I was able to wear a spring/summer type skirt!FINALLY!!!!We ha…

That's all I have to say

I feel like a distorted image of myself.

Things

I think I may have lost the blogging itch…I don’t know.I’m not saying I’m ‘quitting’ but I just don’t have the same enthusiasm for it as I once did.Mind, I’ve gone through what is it, 3 blogs now?!I don’t plan on starting a new one this time though. Part of me wants to just do something entirely different.Though I know that this whole blog thing has its place in my life – it’s an outlet I don’t want to give up, I just don’t feel like using it to its full potential for some reason.Maude’s back and what I AM itching to do is see her!Yet I have the opportunity tonight and I’m not taking it…I just don’t feel like going back out when it’s after 9pm and I’m in my jammies…Not that she’s far away, and I couldn’t just wear my jammies there, but still!I’m hoping to see her tomorrow.My bro and N are really good about letting me barge in and visit because they know I go into withdrawal when I don’t see my puppy niece for a while!She was in Nanaimo this weekend, they took her over to introduce her…

That is all

It rained like crazy today but despite H’s allergy to cats, she P & baby L came over for a visit.L is sooo cute, she’s about 14 months old and walking around and says things like, “Oooh, Pretty!” and what can I say, she’s just adorable!Went to Salathai for dinner and it was delish.Service was so-so, which is rare because usually it’s amazing, but still we enjoyed it and the food was superb as always.Trista, can’t wait for you and Kyle to try it!!!!!Pilled M&N’s kitty and now I’m doing laundry.The fun never ends!!I was in a foul mood this morning but I’m over it now.For the most part.Fairly happy, just with a bit of the Sunday night blues – which is always to be expected when Monday is a work day :SWouldn’t you know it rained and rained and NOW that we’re back home and not going out except to work in the morning it is getting sunny…What is UP with this weather we’ve been having?!I can’t wait for spring to settle in once and for all.It better happen soon or we’ll be skipping it …

Another post about nothing

I guess I took a bit of a blog-hiatus, without even realizing it. My mom was over for a few days last week so I was busy spending time with her when I wasn’t at work.We saw Mamma Mia on Wednesday night and it was AMAZING.I loved it and I still find myself singing Abba tunes out of the blue…So good!Now I understand all the hype.I don’t know if I’m feeling uninspired lately or if I’m just tired.I have all these ideas in my head of ‘things I want to do’ but at the moment my preference is thinking on it but not acting…One of these days………………………….It’s too bad it’s Sunday already, I hate how the weekend goes so fast.At least there’s a hint of sunshine between all the clouds.That might mean a walk with P, H and L this afternoon, after showing them our new apartment.Maybe I’m so tired because I’m taking care of F&S (M&N’s kitty cats) while they’re away this weekend.F has a brain tumour and has to be pilled early in the morning and in the evening…I’ve been getting up at quarter to 7 t…
