Day 148 – May 6, 2011

This morning, I was craving Mexican pastries so MF & I made a trip down to the Mexican bakery.

*drool*

At lunch time, I went to meet up with my friend SK at the House of Blues.

Houston HoB

SK was in town for the day. Since I had a late breakfast (mmmm pastries), we just went to Starbucks to get some drinks. After chatting for a drink, we went to run a couple of errands — he needed to go make a deposit and pay his cell phone bill.

Shortly after I got home, I saw this..

Turns out it wasn't the kitty love we thought it was... it was more motherly LOL

Poor little Tomasa.. there was no milk that was going to come out of that nipple!! I laughed and laughed and laughed and eventually she stopped.

The kitties were just hanging out looking sad... as though they knew what was going on

I felt so bad separating them but I was under strict orders not to bring home the tiny little kitty 😦

In the afternoon, it was time to drive back to Austin! I put the cats in their carriers, loaded the cats, and finally loaded the kitties. It wasn’t too bad of a drive.. except Eddie wasn’t very still for a lot of the drive.

Such a curious little one!

The drive was pretty uneventful otherwise.. and after 22.5 days of being away from Austin, I was home πŸ˜€

Day 146 – May 4th, 2011

Happy Star Wars day — May the fourth be with you!!

MF made breakfast again yay and we went out for a late lunch after we picked up H from school.. street tacos and we shared a hamburger!

Ever since last night, it had seemed like Eddie and Tomasa were upset with each other; I hadn’t seen them together at all!! But late this morning, I finally saw them together again and Eddie was grooming her {it sure does look like they’re kissing!!}

Cuties!

This afternoon, there were no excuses and I went to Zumba with her. On our way out, we noticed the Siamese’s kittens outside.

This was Eddie & Siamese in April last year

Chillin' outside.. 5 out of 6

Oh there's the 6th!

They’re so cute!

Zumba wasn’t bad.. after that, we went to look for a book at Target then Walmart and went to Taco Cabana since we were starving at this point… we also had a margarita while we were there πŸ˜€

After surfing for a bit, I decided to call it a day!

Day 145 – May 3rd, 2011

This morning, I woke up and got to work straight away. I had a few more things to do before my 1:1. At 11am, I called my boss and went over things I needed to work on for our group’s website. After that, MF and I met up with her friend for lunch.

I had the fried mojarra.. can't remember the name in English

After lunch, I went back MF’s to work some more.. in the meantime, I noticed Dusty got more comfortable at MF’s house

On top of the fridge!!

Eddie also had to climb up stuff

This evening, I watched TV while Mireya went to Zumba. Nothing much else went on…

Day 144 – May 2nd, 2011

Ah.. Monday. The only thing that made starting a Monday good {aside from chatting with you of course} was that MF made breakfast smoothies and toasted some waffles. AF was coming by after dropping A off at school. For some reason, I was surprised to see her with the baby… sometimes I forget she’s got a baby lol.. I tried working butΒ had a hard time concentrating. I didn’t end up doing a whole lot of work during the day.

I got to see the little kitties in action πŸ˜€

Hugs

Eddie grooms Tomasa a lot… then he hugs her.. it’s really cute πŸ˜€

In the afternoon, I finally got my groove and started working. I stayed working while MF went to Zumba. I worked way into the wee hours.. I wanted to get some things done before my 1:1 tomorrow… Off to bed!

Day 142 – April 30, 2011

The alarm went off at 4:30 am. and I had to get up and shower… however, the water boiler is broken and won’t be fixed until later today.. so I went to boil some water. I got to the airport and the lady who checked me in [I can’t check myself in while traveling with Dusty] didn’t even weigh my bags!! I am thinking it’s because I’ve paid to travel with a pet and for a secondΒ bag [Air Canada doesn’t charge you for the first bag]. However, she said that my flight wasn’t until 8:40, not at 7:40 like I originally thought. An extra hour to spare at the airport..yay! I then realized I had left the Nintendo 3DS on the kitchen counter. D’OH!!!

As I was already awake and hungry, I went to Tim Hortons to get some food.

I gotta get rid of all of this Canadian change!!

Luckily, I had enough change so I didn’t have to use my debit card to pay for my egg sandwich with ham {it was a lot like an Egg McMuffin} combo with a tea. I sat down and ate… man the line grew way long while I was sitting there. After breakfast, I picked up a couple of magazines and a bottle of water, then went to the gate. The flight was on time and I slept for more than half of it.

Once we got to Houston, Dusty and I waited for our ride.

He was actually people watching and not hiding!!

After arriving at MF’s house, AF + kids arrived. We ordered pizza for lunch, and A played Just Dance 2 while AF & I chatted and looked at the magazines. We mostly just hung out that night… we did go to Fiesta to get some junk food at a stand… the diablito snow cones, corn in a cup, chips with salsa, and this frozen mango treat.

Oof.. so full but it was soooo good πŸ˜€

Day 141 – April 29, 2011

Today is my last full day in Canada 😦 It didn’t start well… every morning, Dusty has been waking me up to pet him. It’s quite annoying when this happens long before I have to get up.. Today it was at 5:30 am. I figured since I was awake and unable to go back to sleep, I would go downstairs to watch the Royal wedding since my mom was already watching it.

Afterwards, I headed to the office. I went to lunch with JC at Baton Rouge [I had a chicken salad]. I felt bad for only having lunch with him, but it was either lunch or nothing.. I already had plans for Friday night, and so did he.

I had a yummy salad

JC's salmon and a huge mount of mashed potatoes

I’m not sure if I told you that he had to have surgery on his knee about a month ago.. and luckily, he was able to now bend his knee and walk around with a limp.

It wasn't warm, but he could only wear shorts with the brace

In the evening, I went to see my friend LS and her fam. JC and I went to LS+GL’s wedding last May, and L+G already have a baby! He”s two months old. So I went to see the baby, catch up with LS and also chat with GL and LS’ mom. I’ve known LS for over 10 years.. hard to believe!! She’s a sweet person.

I had to go home and start packing. Oh man, I LOATHE packing!

Buster didn't make my job any easier

I made sure to weigh both my bags to make sure they weren’t above 50 lbs. I had to rearrange the second bag because the things didn’t fit. I finally went to bed past midnight. My flight is at 7:40 which means I have to be there around 5 yay!! I still can’t believe 2 weeks have gone by so quickly!

Day 140 – April 28, 2011

This morning there was sunshine!!!

Dusty made sure to enjoy it as much as he could

I looked at the forecast for today and saw that there would be rain in the afternoon. I said “SCREW YOU, RAIN!” and wore a dress. Man, I guess I should’ve looked closer at the wind icons because it was super windy when I went out. I wore my parka so I was okay… At work, we waited for IS to come in as ND wanted to go for breakfast. I’d already had breakfast but went along anyway. I was putting my coat on when ND said we were just going to the cafeteria downstairs, so I left it behind. Once we were downstairs, I saw IS’ car out the front door and ND said we were going to McD’s. I expressed concern at the fact that I was wearing a dress and ND said I would be ok. He was WRONG! The wind kept trying to blow up my dress!! Anyway, we made it there and back without incident πŸ˜€

I had lunch scheduled with 2 people who started around the same time I had – RA & TA. RA now lives in Boston and works out of the same office I used to; she was in town for a few days. TA still works out of the Mississauga office. They had lunch brought in and had a very short lunch. It was good to catch up though πŸ™‚

In the evening, we hung out at home for a bit before we headed to dinner. My mom has this strange way of flicking the birds.

Angry Birds look awesome on the iPad

We had to teach her how to do it properly.

Then, we all went to another one of my favourite restaurants – The Pickle Barrel.

The parents

The girls - My mom's not that pale.. she was just really close to the flash

The drinks were huge!!

I had the mini burgers with goat cheese and smashed potatoes

It was all really good and we had a great time πŸ˜€ This was my last dinner w/the family for this trip 😦
