Good (it's) Friday

I love Easter weekend. Now. But as a Catholic child I spent most of Easter Week in church from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday. No chocolate, no hunt, no Easter Bunny. I had no idea what people were talking about when I went to school and heard about gifts and egg rolling and whatever else people do.

As an adult it's all about the crazy long weekend and all the junk food I can cram into my Karen-shaped sweatpants. If the weather is nice, I'll walk the dog. If the weather is shitty, I'll watch the Doctor Who marathon on Space. Actually, I know I'll do that even if the weather is great. I'll make Audrey walk the dog.

Either way, Happy Easter, All! However you celebrate.

Ever wonder where you find the time?

I've got so much going on right now especially with this new dragonboat team that I'm finding things are falling behind. I mean, I just remembered I had a blog this weekend.

I've been doing a lot of online shopping in the last little while. I had previously only been shopping for important things. Then I discovered Amazon. From underwear to cosplay accessories, since the beginning of the year I've been expecting something in the mail at least once a week. I love the excitement of getting packages in the mail.

I also love the Walmart website. Woo, do they have a lot of stuff. Plus groceries! What's not to love? I barely have to leave the house anymore. Except for the dragonboat thing. Always for the dragonboat.

Sorry... I just got up to clean the oven. Talk about a focus shift. I've been the queen of multitasking lately. It goes with my insane life right now.

I'm so behind on my podcasts as well. How can I not when I'm subscribed to 33 of them. Holy crap... that's shocking even to me.

Just got up to make dinner. See? Multitasker. Still, my house is a dusty disaster, my bathroom rivals a bus station's and this afternoon I wore my underwear inside out. Because... reasons.

Gotta fly... the shit I have to do isn't going to do itself. That reminds me... there's dogshit on the front lawn that's starting to show up through the snow. Ugh. It never ends...


My favourite "keep me organised" app

I still love ukulele, I really do

But I have so much trouble leaving the house once I get home from work. It doesn't help that I was up at 5:15 this morning to work out, then headed straight to work where I hit my 10,000 step target at 10:42 this morning. After work I went straight to the chiropractor who told me that my sore shoulder is tendinitis. He told me that I should "stay off it" for a week and ice it. Now how do I reconcile that with the mandatory testing I have to do Sunday? Especially when all 4 exercises at said testing involves repetitive shoulder nonsense? Fuck.

Anyway, all that to say that I skipped ukulele night yet again. Second month in a row. I hate parking (2 out of 5 times I get a ticket), it's 20 minutes away, it's cold outside, I can't go in my jammies and they song I want to perform is just a smidge too high for me. So when I got home, I just couldn't leave again. I love going, I hate getting there.

Next month, I promise.

kxx (I really do love it, I swear)

Happy New Year!

Enjoyed my holidays, thanks for asking. I went to Montreal to visit my daddy...

On New Year's Eve, I did a 5K called The Resolution Run pretty much just because they give out a fleece instead of a tshirt (I need to rethink my motivations)...


...and after. Look at the frost on my lashes. It was freezing!
I bought 2 pairs of shoes... well, actually just one, The other was a teacher appreciation gift from my school...

This was the appreciation gift...

No, *this* is the appreciation gift!
And today is the one year anniversary of me being a dog person. Well, a Westie person. Well, a Wesley person. I'm still cool to other dogs because mine is the best dog in the entire world. Sooo...

He picked this toy himself on a trip to PetSmart...

I made this with 2 of his raw patties, mashed potato frosting and carrots for decoration

Looka dat face!
So yes, I've had a great first few days of 2017. What about you? I have a few resolutions, too. I plan to (internally) say "be nice" before I speak. I find that I've been getting more and more sarcastic and negative in my old age so to stave it off, I thought I'd think for a split second before I open my mouth. It should last a hot minute.

I also plan to cook more. I've been letting the family fend for itself for a majority of the year's dinners so I thought I'd go back to making meal plans. I'm set for dinners until the end of February, y'all!

Oh, and I resolve never to use "y'all" in this blog again.
