Monday Blues...

This is what I saw on Friday morning before I left to come into work.  The boys all snuggled up with Alex. :)

After the gym.. spent.  Good way to end a Friday and start the weekend.  :)

The CN Tower.  I met Jeff after work on Friday with Bruce and Alex.
 The two below pictures are of Saturday while I was in the pool with Lily and Stella, our friend Dina's two Bichons.  Stella did so well for her first dip in the pool and Lily was even taking cues from her to get in and get her prissy little feet wet.  At this point, I had been in and out of the water with my two rug rats and they were getting cold so they watched the girls fart around and occasionally would pop back in for a taste of a steak lure that I was using.  It was so funny, we didn't get back from the city til late on Friday night and here I was, at midnight, cooking the dogs steak for lures the next morning.  If that isn't love, I don't know what is. Or foolery. LOL


Charlie, the aftermath of swimming. Spent!

 Hunkered down and exhausted from swimming.  Such a tough life. :)

The below pictures are of myself and Baxter yesterday afternoon at my mom's place for her annual BBQ. Still tired from the previous day's adventures. :)

And a pic of last night, drunk on steak.  The end :)

Emotional abuse is like brain washing in that it systematically wears away at the victim’s self-confidence, sense of self-worth, trust in their own perceptions, and self-concept. Whether it is done by constant berating and belittling, by intimidation, or under the guise of “guidance,” “teaching,” or “advice,” the results are similar. Eventually, the recipient of the abuse loses all sense of self and remnants of personal value. Emotional abuse cuts to the very core of a person, creating scars that may be far deeper and more lasting than physical ones (Engel, 1992).

It's been a bumpy couple of days but today is a new day and a better one.  Onwards and upwards, right?

Yesterday evening, Jeff and I went to sign him up for cross fit.  He's committed to completely changing his life and I couldn't be more happy, proud and excited for him.

Plans for this weekend are up in the air.  Tonight we go to a Jays game, Jeff and I, Alex and Bruce.  Tomorrow morning we've still got swimming with the dogs but I think there's a chance of thunderstorms so we definitely won't be going out on the boat.  Oh well.  Another time soon. :)

Just got back from a killer sesh at the gym.  I feel depleted!  Good times!  I feel like I'm trying to fight off a migraine that's on the cusp of revealing itself.  My right eye is spotty and I feel like my head is going to explode.  Ugh.  And on that note, peace out.  Have a great weekend :)

Weekend Recap and Pictures, of course :)

So I have a bit of a confession here, pssst: I blow off seeing friends or going out for lunches with people because... I love and need to go to the gym.  That's how dedicated I am. Or lame, however you want to look at it.  LOL  Speaking of working out, I just got back from a yoga class outdoors in 36 degrees weather.  Man was it hot!

Moving on, we have a friend staying with us at the moment.  He got into town last Thursday after having drove all the way from BC.  Nice to have him home, he's been gone from Ontario for about a year now and he's finally back which is awesome.  This Saturday, as a matter of fact, we're heading up to his parents' place to go boating in the afternoon and then see his mom in some play she's acting in.  Saturday morning the boys are going swimming in the pool.  Dock diving not quite, but more like confidence building in the pool.  Sunday is a BBQ at my mom's place, her annual get together with some friends and family.

Looks like Jeff just got some baseball tickets so I'll be meeting him, Alex and a fourth person downtown after work on Friday.  Sweet! :)

That's all, I'm really scattered today so forgive me.  Light, love and happiness
