Random observations

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???
