Christmas Update

Overall it was a lovely quiet Christmas day, and then boxing day I did nothing all day. Other then beat my dad at a game of Sequence.
I was looking back at my four days off, and I didn't get any sewing done.. As much as I really had hoped to. But I have tomorrow off and Bonnie is coming to spend the night. So I'm hoping to get some girl time in. (And finally cut out the rest of the pants I need to finish.)

I bought The Husbands b-day present. But now I want to get him something that will surprise him.. (he picked out the other things) But I really don't know what to get.. Any suggestions? Cologne is out the question, I already bounced that one off of him.. It landed like a water balloon, and blew up in my face.

So I am planning on going snowboarding on new years day, and then again on Jan 16th because it's free day with a donation to the food bank!!!
I am so excited to go up, I went once last year. I miss going up all the time like my siblings are doing.

So my gym pass expires on Jan 1st, I am getting a second month because I've started to see the effects on my stomach and arms. No luck on reducing my pectorals, sadly...
I've worked my way up to 36 min's of cardio, and I want to bump that up to 45 min's.
I think the next thing on my wish list would be an elliptical machine.

Slow to post

So this week has been one of trying to catch up on sleep. But I am still waking up very tired.
The good news is my bestfriend and husband and baby are in town. We spent this afternoon playing games. I won settlers and then was eliminate first in Risk..
So many things I wanted to post but I don't have the energy. Yesterday was the day everything went wrong... I ended up getting dressed up to play a game of starcraft and then go BP's for some late night snacking.
The good news from yesterday is that I managed to lose 2 lbs!!!! I've started doing more cardio, and man does it ever wear me out. I wanted to go to the gym to make up for lost time today. But I didn't have the energy to do it. I've been reading how many calories are in things like chocolate bars, and it's enough to stop me from eating it. Because I know how long it takes me burn off 300 calories.. Right now my fav thing is homemade foods because I have no idea how many calories are in it. So I can enjoy without guilt :D

I cant believe it is almost Christmas Eve, where did the time go?

Some days I feel like I am going to drowned in my To-Do List's. So many small ends to tie with Party-lite stuff, and things I want to do around my room.

I wish the rain would stop and turn into snow, I really want to go sledding soon.
So I'm down to 3 days off, I've promised myself I won't sleep in past 9, because I want to make the most of the days.

Well I'm off to watch House, time to catch. I love that show.

Things to come.

A post is bubbling in my brain.

It's about a week in coming.

I need to sit down and write it all out.

I am going through a time of self awakening (again)
I'm in the spring season,

even though it's snowy and wintery outside.

Lots to post :)

P.S. Dave
Sorry, there are no photos of curtains yet.
I forgot that they are still on my camera.
Wednesday afternoon. (hopefully)

P.P.S More random pics to come :D

Family Photo

So I did take some photos on Wednesday but our internet hasn't been working at home.
So when that starts I will upload them.
This is our christmas card!
Ps. I've done 4 days at the gym now!! If anyone wants to go with me that would be lovely,
I usually just wander around and do whatever I feel like. But I am searching a real work-out so I can reclaim my stomach muscles, and minimize a few other areas. I worked from 10 mins of cardio to 15 yesterday, I'm happy with that. Almost 150 calories burned. I also did some bench pressing, which I love doing but had been a little intimidated to do without a spotter. I could do like 35 lbs, compared to 60-70 that I used to do like 10 years ago.. I am planning on working my way back up to that. Still the same weigh though.. Oh well.. it's not the numbers that count.

Cora Lynn Photos!

My Beautiful niece is one month old! Caleb gave her a huge whirly pop,

Day 2 at the gym.

It was easy to go to the gym, but once I was there. Alot of things I wanted to do, my body refused because it haden't recovered from the beating of yesterday. The good news I was able to do my cardio only stopping once or twice. I realized yesterday how badly out of shape I really am. Never let yourself go at least a year with out being active. There is so much to be done. I'm starting thats the first step.. Well my weigh in is 145 lbs. Yikes.. thats so scary.. that at least 15 lbs heavier then I ever want to be.. and 30 lbs over my ideal wieght. Now I realize that I might not be 115 but I can dream!

Well I must get packing up my Partylite stuff into my lovely tote that I earned!!

On a side note the Husband is kicking my butt at Scraulous on facebook.. :S Someone should add him and then give him a taste of his own medince. Ohh we had some lovely snow that included the ugly north wind, which I could've done with out personally.
On Wednesday hopefully I will have a lovely family photo to post of the Husband & I with our two huge black cats!! I am trying to send out christmas cards with a photo.. Along with thank yous to all his relatives cause he still hasen't done it.
(He says i'm the one who never finishes anything.. Right.)

I bought material for PJ pants for Husbands birthday in January, I'm going to make myself some matching ones. As soon as I make curtains for our windows though. Now just to find the time in between Ford and Partylite shows..
Byes for now.

Going to the gym..

After telling myself I am going to the gym when I get time.. Today is the day!! I must do it... I want to burn off the pounds. I'm so tired of sitting at my desk day after day and feeling the rolls on my stomach.  
So off to Northcoast I go to buy a months pass.
That way I know that I will use it..
has been such a lazy day, we slept in and missed church.. Then I read a few chapters of my book while Husband wrote a few chapters in his book. Then we came down to get some moldings but Rona was closed. So I've sat here and enjoyed an Eggnog Mocha, and watch Reba.. That show makes me laugh oo much. Reba is such a great musician and funny lady. Now I am procrastinating.
. Till next time.

Not quite so shaky

Well things have improved a small amount.
But still stuck between a rock and hard place. But the rock has budged a little bit.
Now I'm finding I have a hard time pulling my body out of bed in the morning. I think that I need to make some changes to my excerise schedule because I'm not sleeping well. It's starting to effect everything. I dread having to go to work. To do work I don't really enjoy. But I've commited to work until husband's done school.
Newfoundland might not be such a distance dream!! We are going to look into school there :)
Which is totally exciting. But I will have to keep y'all updated on that

Now for the big news! I got my ears pierced for the first time in my life. It hurt like heck, and don't let anyone tell you different. But I'm happy I actually did it. My little sister also got it done, and she was much much braver then me. I was tearing up and hyperventilating. But it wasn't as bad as shots used to at the dentist.

Neways I'm on lunch right now, and I need to start writing my Christmas letter :)
Thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments.

Wisp of Love

my love is a wisp of smoke
fast disapearing.
no traces that I was once here
taking up that space beside you,
snuff out by your unkindness...
maybe the next person will
let me shine with them

just love me, please protect me
my love is all I have
it's pitifully small, but if you
cherish it, it will grow

this is my hearts cry,
please hear it, don't let it extinguish.
to let love die, might break my heart
into a million tiny pieces

only God could repair me after that.


So much I would love to write, but they are dark and secret thoughts. This blog is so wide open. I need a friend to share with, to help me understand this time. I am clinging to the verse "and this too shall pass".
Right my wanderlust is kicking in, I want to be traveling to new places and seeing new faces. I've been contemplating Newfoundland, because the Husband has a friend there that is dear to his heart. But I don't know if it would be possible before he finishes school.

I want to be on a grand adventure. Not strapped to a decent paying job with benefits, because that would be the sensible thing to do. Some days I hate being SENSIBLE.. But thats another topic in itself.

On to happier things, I'm burning Plum & Cognac candles, and I love them. They are this deep rich purple color. I will take some photos and post them.
I'm sorry this post is so downhearted. But it's just the really life me right now.

Small Catch up

Last night The Husband & I took a night off from life, and walked to Timmys for some chili (His new fav food) after getting me a Starbucks. Then we meandered over to one of my favorite hangouts "the library." There I curled up with a cute book called Gabriel's Angel. Which I finished last night before drifting off to sleep. But I found another book which is called the Scarlet Cord, and it's supposed to be a Christian book, according to the sticker.
I'm looking forward to reading it on my mini vacation this weekend.

I've been super busy with PartyLite which is great in sales, but hard on life in general. Because of the full time job, which is starting to drive me bonkers.. I hate warranty. I just can't get my mind wrapped around all the little things.. I am trying so hard not to let people down, but I can't handle it. They don't seem to understand that. I think I'm slowly running out of steam. Today I'm going to try and tie up a few loose ends and find something to wear to the wedding.

Sometimes I wish life was simpler. I can't even explain that sentence without divulging the gory details, of things that are best left unsaid.

I found the cutest comic blog. It's called Being Five, Do check it out.

I think I shall start an I wish list, and then try and reorder my time to actually do the things I want to do.
  • More time to read
  • My room looked livable not lived in.
  • I had friends to go for coffee with and have adventures with.
  • My husband would do his end of the bargain per laundry and tidying.
  • I made my own lunches, instead of buying them.
  • I was 20 lbs lighter
  • I wasn't so critical of myself and the ones I love.
  • I actually accomplished the small things.
  • I could go back to Victoria for a few weeks.
This list could go on.
But I am done for one day.
Till next time.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween party at Ms. RN's was a blast!
Thanks girls for putting so much time and effort into it!
Pictures to follow because I don't have the patience to wait for them tonight.
So many ppl had great costumes, battery died so I missed the last 4 :S

But for a special tonight I bring you The HUSBAND!
Be prepared to see faces of Husband that you may never see in person!
He was bored in the car the other day and found the camera.
(Click on the pic for a larger photo)

Probably thinking... IS SHE EVER COMING BACK?

"I'm soo funny, HaHa"

"Umm What was that?"

I have no clue what he is thinking.. (do ask him)

PS He has no idea I found these. So feel free to compliment him on his many facial expressions next time you see him!!
