Last year I accomplished a lot. I'm very happy with the goals I set and met. This year, I need new goals. Most of the standard goals, I've met or exceeded. I don't need to 'eat healthier' - I'm quite happy with my current eating habits. I don't ... Read more
So today is the start of a brand new year. Lucky 13th. :)
I've gotten the year off to a great start - three short workouts adding up to a half an hour, and a half hour walk in the bright sunshine. It was cold but the sun made it bearable. I... Read more
Today I hiked along Elora Gorge with my best friend. We didn't 'power walk', because every minute or so we had to stop and take a picture! The leaves were out in full force today, and while the air was cool and the sun kept hiding behind the clo... Read more
Today in Canada it is Thanksgiving Day, and today I like to think of the reason for the holiday - the thanks. It may seem a hokey ritual, but I find it very helpful to remind myself of all the wonderful things that are going on in my life. There... Read more
Yesterday I completed a major fitness challenge in my life. In January, I would not have thought this was possible at all for me. I still don't think of myself as an 'athl... Read more
Next Monday is Canada's Thanksgiving holiday. But more than that, I am off for the entire week.
I need it.
I am planning on going to Elora Gorge on Tuesday with a friend, for some hiking, as long as the weather cooperates. I am also h... Read more
Woke up feeling good this morning. The sun was just starting to rise over the trees, the radio clicked on to a nice, upbeat song, and the cats jumped up for their early morning pets. I could have stayed in bed, but I got up right away. The apart... Read more
Appreciating the small things in life.
1/ Running around the backyard with my neice Ofelia, being able to pick her up, swing her around, carry her on my shoulders.
2/ Relaxing on a Saturday morning with the cats, a hot mug of tea, and... Read more
Yesterday was a very emotional day at work. The departmental cuts we've been dreaded since the beginning of August finally happened, and eight people were laid off. There was a lot of sorrow among my coworkers. Then there was a meeting to discus... Read more
This past weekend was just crazy. It was a gaming weekend, two LARPs in two days, both in Toronto. So I arranged with friends ahead of time to spend the night, to reduce the commute. So that helped. But the city of Toronto closed down the Gardin... Read more
I know a lot of people are 'stress eaters'. When they're stressed, they eat. I'm not that kind of a person. I have my own issues with food (mindless grazing, and social pressure are my biggies), but reaching for food when stressed isn't one of t... Read more
So my employer has been laying people off. Lots of them. Our department has not yet been hit with the cuts, but they're coming. Yesterday our Director was let go - and that means those cuts are now imminent for our department. They've been on th... Read more
Game day! I mention it a lot in my status updates and in blog entries, so I thought I'd clarify. I'm a role-player. I play role-playing games, primarily Live Action ones (LARP). I also play table-top games, but I'm not that into computer games (... Read more
I'm not having a good day today. I've been exhausted all day, since the moment I woke up (was woken up, by my mom calling to find out if I was still going to market) until now. I've been angry, frustrated, bitchy, the whole thing. I feel like a ... Read more

I'm looking forward to the weekend coming up. Not much is happening, just game on Sunday, but it should be nice and relaxing compared to the last few. I might get some needed club work actually accomplished! Wouldn't that be sweet!
Good thi... Read more
