Sunday, February 7


~ ack.

Just figured "ack" worked with that pic. :)
Yesterday... could have been better but only if I'd done less.
Got up with a plan for groceries and it turned into the road trip of mass consumerism...
Starbucks... (!!) cost-co, home outfitters, wallmart and back to outfitters AND into futureshop... the Wii was finally ready.
Like I had to call? lol... it had literally just arrived and there I was... on the phone. (my spidey senses were tingling).
Then loblaws... and by this time I was all walk'en slow and favouring my ab. :(
Fortunately I have kids at home to empty the car...
I carried the Wii in. :)

wearing
~ oh... pj pants, sleepy tee and giant hoodie (my "too big" hoodie is comfort food my outsides...
planning
~ yeah, so I'm planning on feeling guilty about not motivating the family down to Winterlude... for the millionth time... to find a parking spot... change into skates in a frozen crowded hut... drag kids along the skateway... buy overpriced coco, etc.
~ oh wait... I just decided to not feel guilty. So... never mind. :)
~ going to my folks house for dinner.
wishing
~ to, once again, thank balljar for sharing...
~ for jjnslat to keep the chicken porn to a minimum...
~ to point out that I'm a bit jealous of pasticcio and her wee trip to the Park-of-O.
~ AND that all my snowed'in buddies... dig themselves out with a minimum of back injuries.

Birthday moments...
From yesterday... happy birthday mr frosty (frostbyte). I hope all is well and that things spin right for you over the next year. Oh... and dry... stay dry. :)
And for today...
A very happy birthday to my little alice, (no... who's not so little any more). Truly, I hope you have a wonderful day and a stellar year. You're the book... I've been reading for so long. Please don't get lost. :)

So I'm sick of my shoulder.
I'm going back to the doc and ask to see a specialist.
Physio has not brought me any sustained relief,
and I cannot sleep a full night ... so screw it.
Between that and the ab I am a tad bit
On the frustrated side of things.
Physically.
sigh.
!
I'm making an appointment with Zee's trainer too.
I need to sort out what I can do while life keeps
shooting with things I can't.

Contemplated a "burr" grinder for coffee.
Our twenty year old braun kinda gave up the ghost.
I ended up with another blade, this time from krupps.
Cool "burr" ish'ness with coffee grinding will have to wait for christmas. :D

Watched Caprica (epi 3, counting the pilot 2 hour movie as epi 1)
Personally I hope he kills her... she's a pain and I don't like her.
and I'm looking forward to Lacy manning-up ... aka the serialized dramatic tv show plot feature where the downtrodden come of age and assert themselves...
er... yeah, lol... just TOTALLY DIGGING this tv show. :)

~ alrighty...
Time to make tea biscuits ... choco-chips, blueberries...
seperately, of course. CC's for the boys... bb's for me! :D

(no subject)

How you treat each other
has a greater, cumulative
impact on your children
than how you treat them.

When you go off on them...
They are in "reaction mode"...
possibly defensive, sometimes offensive.
But when it's you and your partner...
well, they're just open to a blank page
Taking it all in.

And because we were all young once...
You all... know exactly... what I mean.
