Just a quick note to let you all know that i'm still alive and well, albeit a little sunburnt. The camping trip was a lot of fun, and now I have less than a week to prepare for the next big trip!

I don't have much time these days for journalling, so if you don't see me here so often, don't be concerned. Life is just taking over right now!

Bootcamp tonight and unpacking! Tomorrow a trip to the vet (poor Dog must have an infection or something). Weeding! Watering! Packing!

It's a busy week, and then off on holidays again, this time for a whole week! I can't hardly wait!

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

~Moody~ on 07/12/2011:
Sounds like a busy but fun time for you!! Check in when you can!

Umpqua on 07/12/2011:
Glad you're having so much fun, and I hope Dog is OK!

Man I have missed you so much!!!

I am going camping in less than 7 hours from now! For three whole days! I can't wait to get out of town for a few days and just relax; I hope the weather cooperates with my plan!

So ball on Wednesday was good; I should update you on our stats - we're at 6 wins and 1 loss and are in the third spot in the league. The opposing team's pitcher was h.o.t. like woah and made me giggle uncontrollably and forget how to run. That was fun.

I keep leaving my camera in my car so I still haven't been able to take any pictures of my flowers, but I will soon - maybe next week sometime. Hopefully by the time they stop blooming ;)

Yesterday I was busy running around and getting things ready for the weekend. I took charge of getting all the groceries that we'll need, so I spent a good chunk of my afternoon in the grocery store, making sure I had everything on the list and even some things that weren't just for good measure. When I was done, there was enough food to last me three months. I then packed it all into coolers and bags, and started working on my own packing. It was a very full day. By the time I got all the packing done, it was time to go to a friend's place and help pack stuff into her camper. When that was done, I was off to another friend's place to discuss pick up and drop off and who was driving with whom. Oh, and also to watch Big Brother ;)

Anyways, I missed bootcamp yesterday because I was poopered right out.

And this morning I missed my 1.5 mile walk with Walking Buddy. Why? Because I forgot all about it. FYI - so did Walking Buddy. Moving on.

Yesterday: coffee, bagel, 6" sub, burger, potato, yogurt with walnuts, pita thin with pb.

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

V on 07/08/2011:
Have fun camping!!!

I haven't been camping in years. Have a great time.

moogy on 07/10/2011:
I hope that you have good weather for your camping trip, not too hot and just perfect for you. Sounds like you are doing great with the ball, you must have a good team. Funny lady, forgetting how to fun, was the pitcher that hot!!!!!?

Yesterday: coffee, yogurt and walnuts, wraps, cupcake, apple slices with caramel dip, strawberries.

I drank 3 litres of water as well (that's 96 ounces).

When I got home from work yesterday, I changed and went straight to the lawnmower and cut the grass. An hour and a half later and I was pulling weeds out of my big flower bed. I accidentally brushed up against some tiger lillies and they peed on me... seriously. I have orange all over my arms and legs. I tried to wash it off - one bath and one shower since last evening - but it's not working! I'm a big hot ORANGE mess!

Anyways, a few more weeds to pull out and i'll be ready to take some pics for you guys :)

Today is slo-pitch day. I also want to pull weeds, take pics, do dishes, and do some more packing for my camping trip this weekend.

Tomorrow i'm off work (i've been saying that a lot haven't I? Woo!) and i'm hoping to get my oil changed, make a bank deposit, get gas, get groceries, pack some things into friend's van, and go to BOOTCAMP!

I thought i'd never say that word out loud or write it down ever again.

My friend told me that someone is putting on bootcamp classes during the summer for $40 a month, so I might as well go for it! This isn't the same person I took bootcamp from before, but it is the same person I took kickboxing from and he's going to totally trash my body, I just know it (and not in a slimy, porn-like sort of way... you know what I mean). I don't know if i'm happy about this yet...

Progress as of today: 11 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

KathyBlue on 07/06/2011:
ahh, lotsa plans :) Have fun at bootcamp tomorrow. :)

Umpqua on 07/06/2011:
I stuck my nose in a lily last summer and spent the next hour wondering where the yellow/orange stuff on my face had come from ;P Hope you have a great day at boot camp!

sweetpea1977 on 07/06/2011:
haha, my fiance (now ex-fiance) sent me a stargazer lily bouquet when I graduated from college. My sister, wearing her favorite college jacket, accidentally rubbed up against them and they permanently stained her jacket. This happened in May 2000 and she is still mad at him about it. She always tells me that lilies should be neutered once they become part of a flower arrangement! :)

Oh boy, bootcamp!! I hope you end up enjoying it this time!

Good for you- boot camp. Sounds like things are going well for you.

Yesterday I made beef and brown rice wraps for dinner. I used my new food processor to make a hummus spread for the wraps and used all kinds of good veggies (lots of onion - I had wicked onion breath afterwards!), and topped them off with spinach and shredded mozza cheese. Now you know what i'll be having for meals for the next few days ;)

This morning I went for a 1.5 mile walk with Walking Buddy and I could sure tell that I haven't done much lately by way of exercise. My calves were sore after just a few minutes of walking! It was horribly painful. I am wearing my flip-flops to work today because I just can't bear the thought of wearing heels!

Today I hope to get the grass cut and pull some of the larger weeds out from the big flower bed. They're starting to take over, and while that was okay for a while because they hid my strawberries from the birds, my flower bed is now beginning to look like a wild jungle area. The irises have finished blooming (I should have taken pics) and now the tiger lilies are beginning to bloom. And the ground cover moss that is eating its way towards the grass is blooming a bright yellow. So nice. Maybe i'll take some pics once I clear out those weeds!

I brought walnuts and yogurt to work with me but I haven't had any breakfast yet besides my standard coffee. I need to wake up first!

MMMMmmmmm your food sounds fab! I love hummus, but have never tried making it myself (silly me!) have fun in the yard today, I plan to do some more in mine too after class.

Oh that dinner sounds fantastic, must try it!

What's your hummus recipe? I've tried making it before but it wasn't very nice =P

Would love to see pics of the flower beds!

Have fun working in the garden. I cant wait to find time to spend on mine! I may need to hire a babysitter just so I can get it done!! lol

My extra long, long weekend was awesome!

On Friday (Canada Day), I went to our Centennial Park as the tourism committee put together some fun activities and cake to celebrate Canada Day (I believe Canada is now 144 years old). I spent a good three hours out there and was baked like a lobster by the time I got home! Yikes! And then I decided to pull some weeds and spend more time outside! It was so gorgeous out that I really had no choice ;)

On Saturday I ran around taking pictures of a wedding party, and then enjoying an evening of dancing and fun! I took a female friend with me to the wedding and we are both single so we had fun eyeing up all the candy and flirting a little with some pretty handsome devils! It was fun.

Yesterday I took Dog for a nice long walk in the morning and enjoyed some more sun. I wore sunblock this time, don't worry.

Unfortunately I didn't get around to cutting the grass, so i'm hoping to do that tomorrow as long as it doesn't rain. Today I want to pick up the mail and get some groceries.

This weekend i'm heading to the lake to do some camping with a few friends. I can't wait! I hope the weather holds up because i'll be sleeping in a tent ;)

Yesterday: coffee, water, banana muffin, chicken and rice, cupcake, beef and potatoes.

Great, awesome, exciting, super-fantastic news!!! I got the raise I was starting to think I would have to kiss goodbye! My boss told me yesterday afternoon and I could hardly do anything for the rest of the workday except vibrate from pure joy. This certainly will help with my monthly budget demands... I am so grateful!

I texted 'A' yesterday to let him know how much it was going to cost to repair my car. He said he'd pay for it, so I hope that holds true. Anyways, then he asked about the date we were supposed to go on... I told him I would be busy for awhile... tried to brush him off... then he starts asking me all these questions... what do I like to do... blah blah blah... it was like he was trying to keep me dangling, keep me interested! I thought it was ironic that suddenly when i'm trying to brush him off he seems to become even more interested.

Well, this is the last day of work for me this week! Woohoo! Tonight I am playing ball and possibly going for a few drinks afterwards. Then, tomorrow morning I take my car in to get fixed and I have a tonne of stuff to do in the backyard because I am lazy and can't seem to get my butt off the couch after work ;) Friday is Canada Day and there are some activities happening in town; then Saturday a wedding and Sunday - recover!!!

I am really bad at posting on the weekends, so if you don't hear from me until Monday - Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Yesterday: coffee, water, banana muffin, pb sandwich, dried mango, chicken and rice, mocha.

I couldn't sleep last night because of the extra coffee I had in the evening while visiting friends. Yuck. I don't know how much sleep I eventually got, but I know it definitely wasn't enough!

I vacuumed yesterday evening. That's all.

This morning I was up early to go for a 1.5 mile walk with Walking Buddy. Actually we went 1.7 miles ;) I'll take it!

There are a lot of things I want to accomplish today. I want to take Dog for a walk after work, do the dishes, weed and trim some flower beds outside, and wax legs. Only two more workdays left in the week!

Friday: toast with pb, coffee, water, chicken and pasta, cupcake, yogurt with walnuts, red pepper slices, potatoes, peas and sausage links. One beer for dessert ;)

I took Dog for a walk after work. 'A' was visiting my neighbour Friday evening, and accidentally backed into my car when he was leaving. Apparently he'd had a bad day and just wanted to share the misery ;) I was a little ticked as I try to keep my car well maintained and this is just something else i'll have to repair now. He broke the shield off of the back light, so i'm hoping it's not going to cost an arm and a leg to replace it. 'A' will be paying for it, whatever the cost is.

Saturday: toast with pb and eggs, water, banana muffin, can't remember what I had for lunch, a smattering of crackers with mozza cheese, a few potato chips, two hot dogs, cucumber salad, potato salad, cupcake for dessert. More beer, some really fruity smoothies with vodka, and a shot of... huh... um... well then. A shot of something.

I was dragging my butt in the morning, but I did manage to cut the grass and do some weeding in the backyard. The rest of the day was spent prepping for the BBQ, which was a lot of fun! Yes, Hungry Tiger was there and yes, she was definitely wanting to shine in my light. Hungry Tiger and her friends left at some point to go to another party, but she ended up coming back to our party later that night. She gloated to my friend that 'A' had been texting her all night, and mentioned how she really wanted to 'get some'. Then she announced that she sent me a very personal text message and that I should read it. She was asking me if I liked 'A', which I thought was the first mature thing she'd done in weeks. I told her to go for it if she liked him, because I was on the fence about him and my instincts were telling me he was bad news.

I mean, really. Everytime he's around, something bad happens. And I don't think it's okay to flirt with two girls who are friends with each other. Or supposed to be friends... whatever! Too much drama! So I told her she should go for it, then 'S' showed up and I had to listen to him talk - gosh, he sure loves the sound of his own voice. Then I wanted to leave and go home, but that took forever because Hungry Tiger wanted to drive home, and 'S' wanted to come over to my place (no. way. not. going. to. happen.) but finally I got home around 4am.

Sunday: coffee, bacon, egg, muffin, hashbrowns, water, homemade pizza on thins - pasta sauce, red pepper, cucumber, spinach, sausage.

I felt great yesterday, although I didn't have much energy for anything. I got some more weeding done, helped the hostess from the night before clean up, and took Dog for a walk.

This morning I was going to get up early, but that didn't happen. And then I was going to walk to work but that also didn't happen. So I will take Dog for a walk after work, get my car checked out, and have some friends over later to discuss a camping trip we're taking soon. Busy day! Thank goodness I have Thursday and Friday off!

First off, I wouldn't call the "Hungry Tiger " a friend, in fact it is just the opposite of what a friend is..You should feel sorry for her because she is so pathetic that she waits around for scraps, your leftovers...As far as A goes, well he is far from a catch..Any guy tha is playing two "friends" against each other is BAD news...Maybe he has such a run of bad luck is karma's way of showing him..LOL.. Girl let the Tiger have some sloppy seconds and for you time to build a stronger, confident harem that will serve you and only you...JMO

hopingforhealth on 06/27/2011:
Lots of drama. It sounds like lame Hungry Tiger's nickname is earned, and I agree with V that A is lame if he's playing friends off of each other. Besides, if a guy hit my car, it would be hard for him to maintain his appeal. :)

I finally came down off the med high I was on yesterday; I opted out of taking anything before bed last night so I woke up this morning still feeling sick but with a clear head ;)

Yesterday: coffee, water, chicken and pasta, dried mango, chicken and pasta. Boring. However... drum roll... no peanut butter OR bread! Woo!

I had to run uptown after work to get some seed packets because Mom was coming over to help me plant the garden. It took us close to two hours, but we finally got it done. We planted potatoes, two types of beans, beets, onion, carrots, swiss chard, cucumber, two types of squash, zuchinni and three types of peas. Holy moly that sounds like a lot. I only hope it comes up because it's been planted so late in the season. Anyways, i'm counting that as my exercise for yesterday since I am not feeling the best and decided to nix the running for now.

This morning I went for a 1.5 mile walk. Actually, it may have been a little less than that because we weren't being quick little bunnies today - I think both Walking Buddy and I were feeling tired and cranky =0!

Breakfast was toast with peanut butter and now i'm having some coffee and water.

Tonight I plan to cut the grass if it doesn't rain before then, and then I have a dinner date with a friend. If I can pull some weeds before then, all the better.

Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!

Good Morning!

(↑ this chipper attitude is brought to you by BENADRYL... because BENADRYL gives back)

Unfortunately, Benadryl was the only cold/allergy medicine I had in the cupboard at home, besides Buckleys. I just couldn't do the Buckleys. So I popped a Benadryl. My head is fuzzy, a full 12 hours later. I'm lucky I made it to my bed before zonking out. I'm also fairly sure that I drooled all over the pillows sometime during the night. OMGEEZIES!

Yesterday: coffee, water, chicken and pasta leftovers, dried mango, yogurt with chopped walnuts, some kind of chicken/ham combo with baked potato and salad at the meeting. PB sandwich.

I got home after the meeting, took meds, tried to keep my eyes open long enough to watch a Make it or Break it episode, and crashed. Hard. I don't even remember tossing. Or turning. At all. This is what meds can do for you, my friends... and OH! this morning I wanted to break my cell phone and it's stupid Star Trek-like alarm sounds in HALF! It was extremely slow going getting ready for work and I ended up being late. I don't know how a person can be late to work when they can drive there within five minutes and have over an hour to get ready. Must be sick.

Does any part of this entry even make sense? I tried to read over what I already wrote down, but it's like I have Attention Deficit today and also? there are tiny white bunnies floating around in my head and they're far more interesting than anything I might write here...

Ok, I exaggerated on that last part about the white bunnies.

I'm scared to work; I have a sneaking suspicion i'll have to re-check everything tomorrow. I should have taken a sick day. Oh well!
