Halfway through Vacation and its Time for a TEMPER TANTRUM or at least a RANT

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Well so far I haven't really had a lot of quality time to myself. I guess I can't really whine too much I spent alot of the time on the weekend trying to get a cover letter ready for a competition I likely will not even get an interview for and part of last Thursday and Friday was spent farting around with going out for coffee with a former co-worker (I haven't decided if I should be irritated with him inferring I was an IDIOT just because I didn't read the paper or watch the news as often as he does- I mean my word THERE ARE other ways of getting information and becside maybe I am just NOT interested!!). Yesterday morning and the weekend I also spent "playing" with some IDIOT sleep monitor because my doctor WANTS to know if I have sleep apnoea ( I don't like the spelling EITHER but that's what the spell checker wants ) I know I woke up MORE wearing the stupid thing and don't you JUST HATE it when doctors want the answers to something that YOU don't really give a rip about. OH and this afternoon was JUST LOVELY I can SCARCELY put it into words went and spend 40 bucks for a new piece of waterproof panelling for the shower in the bathroom as the old wasready to bite the dust. Had it all cut out and discovered I screwed up where I put the holes so off I got to the local store (I call it ROTEM - It used to be TOTEM and then the nice fellers from Quebec went and bought them up - it was an ALBERTA chain and chenged them all to RONAS like it wasn't enough that they bought out all the REVELSTOKE STORES. I hate big box hardware stores- bring back WW ARCADE) Sorry you would have had to have grown up here or lived here to know what that last reference was about.

    I seem to never have time to accomplish what I want to no matter how hard I try.I'm sure I set my standards too high but a person should be able to have a balance between work and play and one should not totally shut down the other. If I am working I feel I should rest and when I'm resting I kow I have work piling up.

I miss the days when we have more options too. Here for every 5 good store/restaurant/business we have close we have one crappy one come in. When we get a good place they get a poor location and don't stay open.

time off

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I finally booked some vacation time and so consequently I will be in a hopefully better frame of mind at least if I don't start worrying about work. They sure seem to pile it on the last day - it almost makes me hate to take any time off EVER.

    You can always tell the quality of a workplace by how hard they try to punish people for taking some well-deserved time off. It seems that your place of business is confirmed butthole.

verrry long week

Friday, August 16, 2013

Its been quite hot up here and consequently I have not been getting the amount or quality of sleep that I should be . I went out for supper and felt quite a bit better sadly that's just a memory. I think I will be hitting the hay earlier tonight -at least I know I do not have to get up so early tomorrow.

    I've been exhausted too and can't seem to get enough sleep. I would like to just go to bed and stay there until I feel like getting up but then Rip Van Winkle comes to mind. LOL.

Tylenol awaits!!

Saturday, August 10, 2013

I have been extremely busy at work and also have started to sand the fence. Today I did one of the gable ends of the house (both sanded and painted ) which amongst other things entailed about 20 trips up and down a 10 foot ladder. I am already feeling the effects (very tired and stiff and sore).

    OMG, I hate ladders!! We have been busy cleaning my son's room out as he moved away. It's a ton of work. We are remodeling. It will be our new family room.

heirloom carrots

Thursday, July 25, 2013

I just wanted to show one of the carrots I had at supper. They were good even if they were just the ones being culled as there were too many in the row.i guess its hard to tell from the photo but they are red NOT orange.

    Yes they were very tasty - much like a "regular" carrot but a bit stronger not unpleasantly so though. Sorry for the poor photo- I did a bit of correcting as I didn't think you wanted to see the bits of watermelon that were still in the bowl (which I didn't see until after I took the photo and ate the carrot!!).
