January 31, 2011

Thirty four years ago I was blessed with the birth of my now husband, my partner that I walk down this road we call life, my absolute best friend.

I love you Jeff, more than you can even imagine. 

Here's to many more together.

So seven days remain til the Mr.'s 34th birthday and I haven't a clue what to get him....?  To give him money? CAD? USD?  I've asked him on numerous occasions for any ideas or things that he needs that I'm unaware of...So no idea...... I can't afford to get him a regulator and BCD so I was thinking that's what the money can be for, he can create a stash pile to save up for that stuff.

Took the kidlets to the dog park on Saturday and saw Lynds there.  Boys had a great time, which meant that the rest of the afternoon and yesterday, they were pass out victims strewn upon the couch.  :)  Must post recent pictures of them.

We usually go out for dinner with my Mom and Brian but I'm unsure about what's happening since Oliver, my mom's dog, is having mouth surgery the morning of the 31st.  

I have next Wednesday booked off because I have a doctor's appointment and then a new appointment to see a podiatrist about my sore right foot.  Speaking of Doctor's, I made an appointment for Jeff to see a new Doctor on Leslie, mainly out of concern because of the moles that he has and I'm always worried about cancer and shit.  That'll be on February 7th.

Dog sled weekend is coming up soon too, only 3 weeks away.  Speaking of, it's bloody freezing here. Minue 30 with the windchill....It's brutal.  And the office is just as cold, mind you I was the idiot that thought it would be a grand idea to wear a skirt today.  NOT. lol

May is quickly approaching, our SCUBA training is on March 12 and 13th.  Must finish reading my SCUBA book already.

That's all for now. Toodles. xo

Breaks my heart to say this but little Wasin, at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, died suddenly on January 8, 2011, just a mere 4 months old.  *Long sigh*....The poor little beauties, they can be fine one day and dead the next, it's absolutely heartbreaking.

And North America's oldest Asian Elephant, Taj, has died at the age of 71, which in itself is astonishing!!  Most live anywhere from 45 to 60.

That's all.

Monday, January 17, 2011

According to the news, today is supposed to be the most depressing day of the entire year.....I wonder why today.  Why today and not December 21st, on the shortest day of sunlight of the year?  That would be my pick, that's just me though.

So I think I have to make a better promise (to myself) to write a bit more, even if it's silly/stupid/ least I'm airing out the shit that goes on in my head etc.  Not worry about hurting anyone else's feelings, this is MY blog.

Jeff and I went snowshoeing yesterday for a couple of hours.. holy what a good work out.  At few times and I thought that I was going to die going up a few steep inclines.  LOL no that's just the smoker's lungs.  Totally something I have to give up eventually.

This isn't something that I'm entirely verbal about but here goes.  Eventually, if I ever decide to have a baby, smoking will definitely have to cease.  I'm not sure where I am on this though.  As I've gotten old, I think I would like to have one perhaps, but at the same time, I don't want a kid to change us, I want us to continue to be free spirits, fun loving and adventurous.  Everything we do - camping, travelling, sports, whatever, I want to include a child in that equation.  Part of me wonders if that'll ever happen.... It's not something that Jeff talks about and getting him to open up about it just doesn't happen.  I'm not sure what to think.  Part of me thinks he's scared, part of me knows that he knows kids change things...I just don't know if that's something he wants...When it is brought up, jokes are made and I'm not sure what to think.  I guess I want a baby because I'm an only child, I've always adored caring for people, I want to give my mom a little one to dote on and appreciate while she's here with us.. Of course, not all the "right" reasons to have a baby but reasons nonetheless....More on that some other time.

Tonight, is swimming.  We're doing our open water certification this year (finally!!) and then doing our test dives down in Barbados while were down there in May for two weeks.  Cannot wait.

Boys are doing spectacularly.  Baxter is now 3, as of Saturday, January 15th, he turned 3.  Out of the terrible two's (jokes) and on to three's.  Which means, Charlie is almost 4...He actually turns 4 just 2 days before we return from Barbados :(  We'll celebrate when we get back.

Anyways, that's all for now.  To think of more things to write about.

Night :)

P.S.  Last picture is of Tarra and Bella, at Hohenwald Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee.  :)w
