Random observations

by - October 07, 2015

A little bit of random for you today, because I'm feeling frazzled and just feel like spewing everything out in one post.  Also, why is it that Mondays and Tuesdays leave me feeling so very overwhelmed and run down.  I need to restructure how I do things. Also, I need to remember that I am still a full-time teacher and I can't accomplish things at the same rate (of awesome) that I did last year.  I can't believe I even considered the fact that I wasn't feeling accomplished running a home and teaching part-time last year.  I would kill to have that time again.  Also, this is just Tuesday night talking and I'm feeling particularly evil.

We're 2 weeks away from federal elections in Canada and I'm soooo sick and tired of all the campaigns done against the other parties.  Spend your money creating ads that show what you're actually going to do and not what the other party isn't going to do.  At this point, I'm going to vote for the party that has annoyed me the least.  Or who has the nicest hair and the least creepy smile.  Or for the party that will give free beer for everyone just because we're awesome.  Also, beer is made from barley and I'm pretty sure we grow a shit-ton of it here, so it should be free.



A couple weeks ago, I was in the drive thru for Tim Hortons and two vehicles, both ahead of me, threw out their trash, but missed the garbage and didn't get out to pick up their lousy cup and put it in. What is wrong with this world? I'm pretty sure they're the reason we can't have nice things.

So I take a week off of workouts because I was feeling run down and in the end I feel shittier, most likely because I wasn't working out.  Isn't that a vicious cycle?  I wish I liked mornings enough to get up and do something.

I've been turning my phone off, and by off I mean to silent, when I get home from work.  I love the possibility of quiet that comes with that.  And sometimes when I'm feeling extra fighty, I can get that rebellious fix by not answering my phone, because I didn't hear it.  


Willis just informed me that he feels it would be safer for him to sleep upstairs because of moose.  To which I replied, um what? And then he went on to tell me that there was a glass door downstairs and the moose could just barge right in.  What he doesn't know, is that the moose around here are quite polite and would ring the bell first.  #acreageproblems

I swear Lucia's superpower is the ability to fall asleep in under 5 minutes, every. single. night.  I read her a story, I rub and massage her back and then, like clockwork, she is out cold.  Amazing.  If I have a super power, I'm sure it's the ability to always like the most expensive thing.  Whhhhhhhhhyyyyyy???

  1. did he see that video of the moose fighting in someone's yard lol?
    OMG the frigging election stuff is driving me INSANE. I'd much rather hear what you're all about as opposed to why I shouldn't pick the other guy.
    on a positive note - JAYS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS! :)
    hope your week takes a turn for the better xo

  2. Loved the video. I told Mr. that you were doing this, short little videos and I think I'm going to try to do it too! Doing the 10 minute vlogs was just too time consuming to edit :) Thanks for the idea!

  3. Great videos, when I was a kid I had nightmares about the train crashing into our house coz we lived so near to them, poor Willis!

  4. Does your election coverage last as long as ours does? Ours has been pretty hardcore for 3-4 months now and our big election isn't until next november (as in a year from next month). I'm over it now and it's only just getting started! I totally feel you on that frustration!
    But enough about politics - Go Jays (but only for the postseason....)! :-)

  10. It was super quick and only took 10 minutes to put together in imovie.....I'm going to try to do one for a specific event next time so that it's less random.

  11. no, thankfully, our election stuff doesn't go on that long. I would go crazy. Heck, I'm sick of your election too and I don't even live there. And yay for the Jays support, even if it's just for the postseason and hopefully for more than 3 games....

  15. I am getting whooped by working on a regular basis. I am suffering from the same crazy cycle of being too tired to work out, feeling more tired because I didn't work out, and too tired to work out the next thing. I keep thinking I will just get up earlier, too, but nope...
    I think I need to try writing a good random post to help me feel better. Maybe today!!

  16. Your randomness is one of the things I like most about you. I am sick of the election too. I am annoyed at how long the Conservatives made the campaign. I am also annoyed at the party bashing going on. Most of it is half truths and propaganda. UGH. Monday can't come soon enough.
