I think that this blog is more about my whole life these days, not just my weight loss. I want it to be more.
So, what can you look forward to?
More crafty things - more than just crochet! Maybe not initially, but I have some other crafty things going that might not come to fruition until camping season is over.
More photos of the things that we do - it's time to get out and enjoy the summer, and take photos! No more sitting in the house every night!
And, more life. Just life.
I will still keep you updated on my weight loss. It's still a constant in my life, but right now it has been sidelined by the Achilles tendonitis. It's still present though!
The blog is "A Year of Change" and it's time for another change! Stay tuned!

The postal strike is finally over, so I can finally offer this to you!
And what am I giving away?

Right now I'm watching a show on TLC about mothers who have babies past menopause. A woman in India had a baby at over 70 with the help of IVF. In India, there is no age limit on women having IVf, where in the US and most of Europe, it's usually only available to women up to their 40s. Where is the line? I'm not sure that a woman of 70 should be able to have a baby, but who am I to judge? Personally, I don't want to be over 35, let alone double that age!
Anyway. Should get ready for work. Another day of the grind! I'm actually happy about going to work, which is so weird. I'm excited to be getting a paycheck again. It's been so long. And I feel like I'm doing something, which is great.
Now. Get ready for work. I have some good crochet projects to share in the next few days also! And a giveaway!

Unions. Unfortunately now I work for a union, though I am NOT union minded.
Canada Post workers are on strike right now, and were locked out after rotating strikes. And the NDP is backing them up (of course, because NDP is pro-union), but honestly, wouldn't it be better for them to go back to work, rather than be locked out? Isn't a contract, even an unfavourable one, better than no paycheck because you're locked out?
So, honestly, I don't care too much about Canada Post, except when I'm waiting for important stuff in the mail. But when unions go on strike, it really pisses me off. Who else, other than a union member, can say no to a contract, go on strike, and still have a job afterwards? If I were working anywhere else, and I decided my conditions were crappy and decided to walk out, I wouldn't have a job anymore.
This isn't like during the industrial revolution where unions started. The are laws in place to protect workers from hazards, from too low of pay, and all of that stuff. I think unions are a way of the past. I know that they're never going to go away, but man oh man, would it be nice. What does that teach the young generation of the world? Get mad about something and quit. Basically that's what a strike is to me. A sign of quitting. Plain and simple.
Now that that's off my chest, I can go and get ready for work! Have a good day all!
**I realize a lot of people out there are pro-union, and I don't mean to be telling you how to think. This is totally just my opinion, and maybe I'm just cranky because I want my mail.

Another great novel. It's much too bad that Stieg Larsson died shortly after delivering the 3 novels in this series - I think he could have been a fantastic writer!
This was the second book in the series, and it was just as good as the first. It kept you guessing until the end, I thought.
Read it, you'll like it.

Cam's birthday was a hit. Too bad we couldn't stay until the presents were opened, but I should be getting a phone call from him tomorrow to see if he liked his present!
And stay tuned for tomorrow's big announcement! Keep your fingers crossed that I'll have good news!
And no, it's not a baby.

I have a little boy's birthday to go to tomorrow - little Cam is turing 5! I met him when he was 18 months old, and I'm in total disbelief that he's going to be 5 tomorrow. But, since he's 5, I got him a really great present - a Tow Mater remote control car! So cool! I want to play with it! But, anyways, it's going to be a fun birthday!
And, we have something fun on the DL...I will let you in on it Monday night!

I wanted to post some photos for the riots from last night, but the internet in my hotel is ridiculously slow, which is why this post is coming to you via BB.
Off to bath and read now! Might as well relax!

Good on Henrik on getting his first point of the series though!
Now on to game 7. I'm honestly thinking about not watching it. Game 6 tonight was bad enough, and we were one game ahead! I was shaky and my heart raced the whole time. Not cool.
Who knew hockey could affect me like this? I sure didn't.
Anyways. I'm tired. Off to bed!

But, I know this week I need to start working my ass off and getting into shape. My achilles tendon is killing me, so it's not going to be easy, but I know I need to get my ass in gear.
Anyways. Time to spend whatever is left of Sunday night with John! Toodles.

Gotta love how birthdays remind you of how shitty parts of your life are.
Sigh. Another year over. Hopefully I can make the 25th better!

Today I turned 25. A quarter of a century. Big freaking deal.
Want to know how I've celebrated so far?
By cleaning the house, doing dishes and laundry, going to a job interview, grocery shopping and having the mother of all headaches.
Sound like a fun birthday? Nah, I didn't think so.
I know I'm just being a pessimist, but I am who I am. I'm sick of this birthday shit and it isn't even over. I can't say anything though, because John has actually attempted at planning something, and I don't want to hurt his feelings. Oh well.
Now to pack the trailer. Like I said, awesome birthday.

Both of these books are really good! More in the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series, and they are good. And addicting! I read both of these books in a week, which isn't typical for me these days. Basically, the Bishop series is about a group of FBI agents who have supernatural powers that help them solve crimes. Very good! I've read quite a few of these books, and I would keep reading more of them!

Lisa: What should I do w my hair?
Kara: Can you curl it?
Lisa: I don't have any spray or mouse :( or a curling iron for that matter. Basically up or straight
Kara: Then go straight.
Kara: I mean, haha.
Kara: Do it straight.
Lisa: Bahahahahahahahha omfg I love you
Lisa: I'll text you after my hair goes hetero
Just thought I would share some of the hilarity. I literally laughed out loud for 5 minutes. Maybe I'm simple. Maybe it was really that funny. Who knows.
Anyway, happy Sunday!

Last night was horrible. So cold! I'm being optimistic that today is going to be warmer and I put shorts on. We'll see if I'm right! Supposed to get up to 17 I think, so it might be ok.
IF ONLY THE SUN WOULD COME OUT FROM BEHIND THE CLOUDS!
Anyway. Off to the Farmer's Market and then to the campsite! TTYL!

There are so many places that we want to check out, but so little time, and so many of them are classified as "difficult" which we are not ready for.
But, I think I found a couple for Sunday that look excellent. Nice, easy, beginner hikes. Considering the last time we really went hiking was last June for my birthday when we did that 27K hike in one day.
Anyways, that's it for tonight. I'm at a loss of words for some reason! I'm just getting tired maybe.

Today might not have been the best day to start a diet. And it did not end well.
It started off really well! Eggs, cheese, orange, apple.
Then Costco pepperoni pizza, meat & cheese, a couple of chicken fingers, a spring roll, Wendy's hamburger and Frosty.
And I didn't walk at all.
I guess tomorrow I watch what I eat and walk for an hour! What a day!
