Just Another Manic … Tuesday


Boy it’s always fun to be off work, especially during a long weekend. But boy when you come back to work there is always double the amount of work to do. Now I don’t know if it is because of the day off on Monday, or just because generally we are busy this time of year. Today has been a VERY busy day. A lot of following up on clients, getting things resolved, dealing with some phone calls, proofing releases from our OPS team, and of course those dreaded REPORTS! Sometimes I wonder if anyone really makes any sense of those reports, or if it is just a way for Management to give us some work to do. Hmmm.

Though now things have slowed down for me (granted I probably just cursed myself on it) and I hope to make it home and get back on that elliptical trainer downstairs in our gym. Relieve some of the stress of the work day!

EDIT: Yup I cursed myself! 🙁

Weird Mood

Have you ever woken up and felt great?

Well that is how I felt today. I was feeling great, good start to the day, brisk walk to work while listening to some tunes on the iPod. Even when I got to work I felt great after dealing with an issue from a client (nothing serious as they LOVE ME).

Then something happened. I don’t know why or what could have caused this, but I started to feel BLAH. I even went for a walk after lunch on this gorgeous day to see if my mood would change. Slowly it is, but still overal feeling BLAH.

Maybe when I leave work it will all be better 🙂

Hmm a good workout and the fireworks tonight should help the mood. If not I’ll have to start trying to find those “happy pills” my sister keeps talking about.

Hotel Chic


I’ve always wanted that “Hotel Chic” look, so this weekend I had enough of the old sheets. I needed something new and modern.

So I hoped in the car with Russ and we headed down to Linens n Things and I found them!!! My “Hotel Chic” look is becoming a reality. Granted this look doesn’t come cheap!! But I’ve always wanted it and now I have it.

We now just have to paint that bedroom.

Hmm what colour would good with this sheet set?

Europe Anyone?!


Well Russ and myself are planning on a trip to Europe this coming September. Now some of you are asking where are you guys going? Well to be honest we just don’t know. Granted the plan is to visit London and Paris, but this will all depend on a few things.

First I’m hoping to be able to get some family passes from my lovely sister Gladys (insert grovel remark here). We have to book at least 2 weeks before we are schedule to leave. That said, they only offer 8 seats per flight. So we might end up somewhere else in the world if we can’t make it to Europe.

Secondly it depends on Russ’ mother. Without getting into too much detail, as Russ might not like what I say in a public forum, she depends on Russ even though she wishes to be independent.

So my vacation just might be small trips around here, or who knows maybe somewhere that neither Russ nor I had expect to go to.

Feeling HOT HOT HOT!

So Vancouver is having a heatwave, if you can call 30C a heatwave.

Ok I come from Toronto and when we have a heatwave there, we are looking at 36C plus. I think the reason most of us here in Vancouver feel we are we are suffering is that we are just not use to this type of heat.

Russ LOVES this heat. Me, I’m happy with 25C, but I manage. Now heatwaves here don’t usually last long and I guess this is the main reason most homes and condos just don’t have air conditioning. We just don’t need it.

All I have to say is to just enjoy it! In 6 months time we are going to be wishing for this type of weather!!!
