It's Almost Over!

Hi Lovlies!

I didn't forget and this is just a quick drive by post!

RRSP season is almost over!!!! Once it is I won't be so mentally drained from the day and I might be able to focus on all of the wonderful things to come!

This is the last week of my work torture and then everything will be back to normal...whatever that is!

Oooo question though...what made this? It's a giant nest big enough to fit a small child or 2 after a closer look!

See ya soon

Another Weekend Gone!

Hi Lovelies!

So the posts are sporadic right now because of work and the busy season but it's Sunday night and after watching The Walking Dead my emotions are in a whirlwind!

There are very few MUST SEE shows for me but The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Sons of Anarchy are the ones that I will lock all of the doors and literally starve my kids until they're over even though I try watching them in the earliest time slot possible.

The Walking Dead though is the one that has me screaming at my TV almost every episode! It consistently surprises me...except for Andrea who consistently disappoints me but she's still alive for some unknown reason. I'm hoping that her future choices will eventually be...well...smarter. I won't give any spoilers away for those of you that PVR it but there were a couple of OMG moments.

Sese laughs at me because she watches the show after I do but she'll know how good it is by how loud I scream or the extra swearing that comes along with a dramatic moment. When you are actually sitting on the edge of your seat you know it's good.

That's what I love about the 12-13 episode dramas, they have to pack so much stuff into such a short period of time that you're hooked the whole way through then saddened when it's over and have o wait a whole 9 months for them to come back.

That is sweet torture...

Besides that small 55 min escape from mundane life everything else has been like a train wreck...hmmm bad choice of words.

On Friday it took me about an extra hour and a half to get home from work because of a Heavy Police presence at the 2nd Narrows Bridge/Iron workers Memorial because someone got hit by a freight train. One thing I've realized from taking the West Coast Express is that more people than I thought get hit by trains...a whole lot more.

So as passengers they wouldn't tell us what happened we sat there patiently...well some of us did. I was kind of amazed at the reaction to the situation on the train. We can't go anywhere so why waste the energy getting mad about it. I had music and my book that's all I needed.

So by the time I got home it was much later than usual and my Friday was almost over, the glass of wine that I had said I was going to have forgotten and dinner already being made ( not by me ) was great. Not the wine part I was a bit upset that I missed that.

Anyway the weekend came and went with the sun shining and thoughts of spring humming through my brain as the temp gets warmer and the sun shines more with the urge to do yard work building more and more!

Well off I go on another week of hell with only 2 more weeks of RRSP season to go and hopefully a change of Departments to go with it! Fingers crossed.

See you soon!

Happy Days Will Be Here Again!

Hello Lovelies!

OK I'm not really sure if they are here again but things are looking up...sort of...depending on how you look at it! For me that means I have already wrote off winter and am looking forward to Spring, with sunny skies and happy faces.

Cause we all need some cheering up sometimes!

This is not that time...

I usually don't let work stress get to me, it's easy not too because I work with good people. The ones that aren't so good though are the ones that stress me out. Throw them on top of rude commuters and you have a complete shit show!


The 3 woman that shoulder check people out of the way so the 3 of them can stay together in line..really, must you everyday? You'll be up or down the escalator in less than 60 seconds, get a grip.

The people that stand behind you and poke you in the back when you're already moving as fast as the person in front of you? If I have to turn around, you'll get poked...right in the eye. ( even though I have eye issues and I hope that's your umbrella)

Stress is bad for the soul especially a soul that will go to HELL for raging about personal space issues or the person that butts in front of you in line at Starbucks when all your trying to do it get the Venti Soy Vanilla Latte Ex Hot that you have come to love!


you know that person that stands so close to you that you are highly uncomfortable? Ya that person...back off.

Wait I was talking about being cheery right??? I lost that somewhere but you know what I mean.

So looking to the bright cheery future...a lot of you know that I don't have a drivers license, not yet anyway and I've had my learners for oh...say...about...14 almost 15 years. So long that I have a 40% discount on insurance and I don't drive.

That's all about to change though...! By my __th birthday ( ahem ) I will finally get my license and join the mobile community thus increasing my carbon footprint where is hasn't existed much and instead of commuter or pedestrian raging I will be a calm and observant driver!

Oh you know me so well...

I'll try not to make my posts too far apart. It's RRSP season at work so it's crazy all the time and all I want to do when I get home is grab a bottle of whiskey and sit in my bathtub watching the UK version of Shameless until it all goes away.

hmmm a bit dramatic but you get it!

See ya soon!
