Thank goodness its Friday and this work day is finally over. I had hoped to get to the gym this morning before work, but I woke up in the middle of the night and it took so long to fall back to sleep that I was too pooped and out of sorts to "party" this morning.
We have a cardinal, that is frustrating me to no end. It starts its incessant tweeting, chirping mate calling, whatever you want to label it, around 3:00 to 3:30 AM. It reminds you of those movies with the barking dog that won't be quiet. This bird can pierce through the deepest sleeps. Once it wakes me up, it's impossible to fall back to sleep because it doesn't stop.
I'm an early riser and a light sleeper, but this bird is starting to p(*& me off. I do not do well, when I'm sleep deprived and its woken me up 4 early mornings this week.
I will never harm it, but I sure wish it would find a new neighbourhood, get over whatever is causing it to chirp so loud, or just shut up!
To all the bird lovers, I apologize, but seriously could it keep it down! I just want to get some sleep......
Here's hoping, I sleep through the night and when I awake, the sun is shining , the birds aren't singing , and I get in a really good workout!
Have a nice night fellow Sparkers!

Yesterday was a bust working out. I got a mile walk in but little else. Tied to my work PC when I wasn't in continual meetings.
Today, I was out the door at 5AM. 40 mins of weights and then another 40 of cardio. Quick shower and back home. Waiting for DS to finish up, so I can get him to school, pick up some gas (its below 1.35/litre today for a change) and then another busy day at work No rest for the wicked!
Have a great day fellow sparkers!

I took my SUV in for its 5K maintenance today. Surprisingly with all the football running around, it still only has 4300 KMS on it....not bad since I bought it in January. That will change once out of towns games start at the end of May....Ottawa is first on the list 5.5 hours driving each way.
In under half an hour, oil was changed, filters were replaced, fluids topped up, and an overall inspection done. And I had a coupon, so I got it all done for $20.00
As I'm sitting waiting, sipping my coffee, I thought to myself. "Wouldn't it be great if we could do that? Boy would it save some time if we could just change out the parts, top up our fluid levels and we're in tip top change till the next 5K rolls around. "
I'm kidding of course......oh to dream! We'd certainly get to the finish line quicker!
Have a great day Sparkers.....hope you get to your finish line!

Despite only getting 4.5 hrs sleep last night, I still got in a workout this morning. DS practice finished at 10PM and by the time we got home, it was almost 11....Back up at 4:30 to the gym for 5 AM.
I know by the time work finishes today, I'll be done like dinner. Have a great day everyone....try to get some postings done later.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom Sparkers. I'm taking the day off from the gym. I've giving my back a rest and icing today.
I picked up fresh lobster for dinner tonight....oh I cannot wait. Salad, veggies and lobster. What can be better than that!
After dinner, DS has football practice. What man thought up an 8PM start to 10PM is beyond me, but it is what it is. I will be so glad when these late Sunday night practices come to an end. We don't get back home till almost 11, and it makes for a tired Monday morning.
I'll do the track walk, if its not too messy under foot, while he's practicing. It was a mucky mess on Wednesday, but it was nice yesterday, so it may have dried up a bit. Hopefully the weather holds for the evening.
Have a great day everyone!
