Hi everybody. It's been quite an interesting few weeks. Just before leaving for a week long vacation with my husband's family, I got a new job. It's a new job, but an old one. When I first moved to BC, I had a job at the private liquor s... Read more

Fitbit or what?

Friday, April 24, 2015      1 comments

So, yesterday (4/23) according to my Fitbit Flex, I didn't do any stepping what so ever during my entire 8 hour shift, plus when I went for a 45 minute walk on my lunch hour, it didn't track anything. This is 2 days in a row...... So, I have em... Read more

Just saw a good idea; do 25 pushups a day for 100 days. Don't know if I'll do it, but today I have. I did 25 bent knee pushups, and could barely do them. I used to do pushups when I got frustrated (about 15 years ago or so). At one point... Read more

So yesterday at work, for some unforseen reason, I cut my thumb pretty bad on the pineapple coreer. I didn't think it was that bad. Then there was no first aid attendant at work, so as a team, we all decided that Alana should 'go get i... Read more

Wednesday, March 04, 2015      1 comments

Hi everyone. Sitting here, after my shift as a cashier, contemplating getting ready for bed. It was a good day today. Working as a cashier for a Seniors' Day at the local grocery store. Not as busy as I'd hoped; the busier it is, the faster ... Read more

I got a phone call around 2 today; my tattoo artist is sick, so we had to reschedule mid-March. I was all psyched and excited to get this done. Despite procrastinating away my morning, I got the chickens tended to, the dishes done, eggs ... Read more
