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 139 – April 27, 2011

Man it was hard getting up today since I got home so late last night.

For lunch, my teammate NB, IS and I went for lunch at Moxies’ in Square One Shopping Mall. I love that place… since we had a quick lunch, we went to the mall to look around.

Boys & their toys

They loved looking at the diecast model cars and we were there for a good 10 minutes.

This evening, I had hoped that I could get together with a few of my friends from high school. I hadn’t talked to them in years and thought it’d be great if we could all get together while I was home. One of them (TK) couldn’t make it because her wedding is coming up quickly and had wedding stuff to do, one (TC) replied too late, and the third one (ML) never replied, so I went over to TS’s house.. We used to be really close in high school and after Paul and I broke up.. but then we drifted apart. She got married to the guy she had been dating since college. I got to meet their kid.. he’s 1.5 year old and is so cute. We had dinner and I brought them some cupcakes; TS and I each had half a red velvet cupcake. We got caught up, and it felt like no time had passed by.. except her & the hubby had a kid! They live pretty close to my sister.

Tomorrow’s another day with lunch and dinner plans 🙂

Day 120 – April 8, 2011

This morning, the little brave kitty wanted extra cuddles.. he wanted to make sure I still loved him after his attempt to run away!

Morning love

Later on, I inspected him for injuries.. he seemed fine but I wanted to make sure he was ok.

One pad was a little red and there was some blood surrounding it

Hopefully that will heal rather quickly! But that was pretty good for having gotten down from the 3rd story balcony to the ground (most likely via the roof to the side of the balcony).

After I dropped off your packages, I went to meet up with some folks over at Weirdo’s… where we enjoyed some root beer floats made by JV while hanging out in the shade. It was a hot one!! Much later on, I went to the restroom and on my way there, I saw 2 dogs going towards a small dog. I heard the dog yelp and then I realized it was Roxy and TG! Someone had to hold the dogs back because they really wanted to get in Roxy’s face. She made it out okay… a little shook up but not hurt. For the rest of the night, she was pretty sad..

She just wants people and doggies to like her!

And now for the obligatory people shots 😀

Goin down.. EE, WT & AG

I really thought my tan had faded enough.. I guess not! AB & TG

Tomorrow, I’m going to bake some of the Lemon Ricotta cookies I sent you for the Crawfish Boil at AG & MV’s!

Day 119 – April 7, 2011

Today, I went to my first kickball game since we won the championship last summer. It’d been a while and it honestly felt like no time had gone by.. except there were different people on the team and the colour was quite different. The Pitches lost but fun was still had on the sidelines.

WT molesting his water bottle.. AG's face is PRICELESS

The clouds looked really fake to me that afternoon…

It looked as though they were painted on!

After the game, I hung around for a bit then I went home.. I had more baking to do! It was a nice evening so I had the balcony door open. I was having a bad night.. the cake balls weren’t turning out well and then Eddie went missing. Yup.. he finally escaped and ended up downstairs in some bushes in the back of the building. So glad I found him and I’m sure he was glad to be home too 🙂

Gotta tighten up that security on the balcony again…

Day 116 – April 4th, 2011

Today, before I got into the office, I got a text from a coworker from Boston. He was in town doing New Hire training and asked if I wanted to do lunch. I said sure and we went for burgers at Mighty Fine. I think I got him hooked! After work, I took an afternoon nap and got a text from EE telling me her, TG & WT were going to Woodrow’s for drinks. Yup.. drinks on a Monday, but I figured “what the heck?!” and went.

Drinks plus TG creepin'

TG wanted to creep in with his chicken wing, so I let him be in it

Earlier, JR+MV were there and some new people (to me) a guy from the kickball team, a girl that WT works with and the girl’s friend. also. It was a fun way to start the week 🙂

Day 114 – April 2nd, 2011

Today started on a sour note — my favourite instructor wasn’t at the gym. I left the gym early as I was hoping to go strawberry picking with EE. Unfortunately, the cable guy came late so we were unable to go. She and A came over to hang out at the pool, and after a nap, I joined her by the pool after a nap. I asked EE what I should bring for movie night, and she asked me to bake something.

After trying to figure out what I wanted to bake on such short notice, I decided on chocolate cupcakes. I was running out of time, so I used cream cheese frosting I had for your baked goods.

I decorated them with frosting roses. They looked so purdy 🙂

WT arrived shortly after I did and with his lead, we put together some jalapeno poppers.. They tuned out really well and were gone shortly after they came out of the oven so I didn’t take a photo.

Little A stole EE's chair while enjoying a cupcake

However, karma isn't nice if you're not nice, and she dropped the cupcake. The 5 second rule applied and she had a fit taking off the leaves. We ended up giving her another one anyway.

While we waited for some people, we enjoyed strawberry daiquiris and the Kings of Leon's DVD

and pet Roxy

Finally, everyone was present — EE & A, WT, AB+TG, JV+RI, LT (hadn’t seen her in forever!) and M “Beef” D (don’t know if you remember her… she was in kickball) and it was time for the feature film

Howard The Duck

Oh man.. that was one terrible movie!! I don’t know how many times I groaned. Glad I’d gone this long without seeing it 😛

I went home not too long after the movie was over. I was wiped out!

Day 107 – March 26, 2011

Today, I found out my fave gym instructor is leaving the gym 😦 She’s going to stay on until the end of April but since I’ll be home for the last 3 saturdays, I’ve only got 2 classes with her. After the gym, I ran around running errands afterwards: picking up cat food at the vet & scheduling Eddie’s annual checkup for Thursday, picking up a box at the Post Office, and going to Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up some Jersey knit pillowcases. Once I was done, I dropped off the package and came back home.

Around 6ish, I went to Weirdo’s. EE, CF, JV, and FG were there.

FG & EE.. it was a a beautiful day!

Me, JV & his beer

CF & his terrible beer

CF has friends!!

The sad little lemon drop shot that EE spilled 😦

The pretty lights went on

FG and I left first.. I went home and watched some Nip/Tuck until I went to sleep.
