It was almost 11pm when we got in last night.  NOTE to self, do NOT drive on the Holiday Monday of the Canada Day long weekend!!!

Quick notes from our weekend...

Kat got eat alive mosquitos and has bites ALL over her face **(and currently REFUSES to wake up)

I broke my baby toe

My Grandpa et al cleaned the corrosion off my car battery

I worked...

I found more pieces of who I need to remember

Discovered a whole new level to the definition of "awkward"

Found a space of contentedness

Capturing The Thrill
Do What Excites You

Each human life has the potential to be dramatic, thrilling, and awe-inspiring. Our lives are, in truth, ours to design. Each day, we make choices that influence the character of our experiences, and our decisions determine whether our paths are rousing or tedious, breathtaking or tiresome. We can create an exciting life by simply doing what excites us whenever the opportunity presents itself. Your passions may ebb and flow, and what excites you one year may not excite you the next, but when you make excitement a regular part of your existence, life becomes more fun and more fulfilling.

If you are somebody that tends to live practically, excitement may overwhelm you at first. To ease the anxiety that prevents you from incorporating all that you find exciting into your life, acknowledge that you are alive right now in this time and every moment matters. When you choose to do more of what excites you, even if your choices requires you to make certain sacrifices, your daily life will soon be imbued with exhilaration, pleasure, and optimistic anticipation.

To understand what excites you, you may need to observe and ponder your reaction to the activities, events, circumstances, and concepts that make up your life. What makes your pulse race, what makes you want to get out of your chair and take action? Try to avoid getting too wrapped up in life’s details; their tedium may cause you to plod through your existence unaware of prospective excitement. Once you have created a substantial list of what excites you, find ways to integrate each item into your routine. You will soon find yourself riding a wave of excitement that lifts you up and makes life truly worth living. What excites you in your life?

I've been up since 4. It was like I heard someone SHOUTING my name. I couldn't settle so 15 minutes later I logged into chat.

It's now 10 minutes to 9 and I've been talking to BFHS for almost 5 hours. ...damn man always could get my attention.

Check out my horroscope for today...
Lively Social Activities
You may be feeling uplifted by the possibilities of all the social activities available to you today, which could make you feel lively and excited. As you gather your friends to share in the fun, you may feel that the world is one big party and that all in attendance are friends. This outgoing sense of connection puts you at ease in any surrounding and allows you to share your joy with anyone in the vicinity. In truth, your positive energy ripples out into the world, affecting everything and everyone and tipping the balance of the world’s energy toward the positive. It may be difficult to imagine that a party in our neighborhood for no particular higher purpose can have a positive effect on world peace, but it creates an atmosphere of acceptance and camaraderie that uplifts those involved. Their positive energy ripples and joins yours as they enter the atmosphere. By socializing and enjoying life today, you uplift others as you share your light.

Another positive outcome of social gatherings is the forging and strengthening of a sense of connection between strangers. When we are having fun, we are more likely to let down our walls and overlook arbitrary social divisions. As we melt into one group of people sharing a common desire for joy and peace, a vision is planted in our hearts and minds, making it easier for us to envision a world at peace. Being outgoing today is a joyful way to create unity in the world.

Uh huh...ok Universe...this is me...along for the ride.

K has been bugging me for a while to spend time at school with her.  SO last Friday she said "in 5 days you'll come to be my show & share". 

Being the good mommy that I am, I compared schedules at work and booked a random vacation day for tomorrow.  Here's the plan.

(pack K's overnight bag!!)
2.  Make our way to school
3.  I'm her  "show and share" thing
4. She's gonna teach me
5. Stick around for play time & Lunch

6. Pick up stuff.
7. Pick up EON
8. Indulge in the rarest of vices for me
9.  Clean & do laundry under the influence.
10. Welcome BF for a visit in whatever way deemed necessary at the time
11.  Eat, more welcoming
12. Possible Dancing
13. More welcoming
14. Crash HARD.

Sat involves recovery and collecting the kidlet in time to head to friends for a random hangout that I know nothing about Saturday night.  It welcomes kidlets and that's all that matters. 
Sunday will hopefully include the GIG and time with my cousin & her family.

I'm grateful for the friends I have in my world.  It keeps me going.

I am tired on so many different levels right now.

I'm going into hibernation for the rest of the day and snuggling with my daughter.

If you need me. You'll have to call.
locus_ofcontro: (Boring Update)
So the general recap comes first. Then specifics under the appropriate filters.

Friday - woke feeling like H_E_double L, and so cancelled that thing called work and hied myself to the clinic. Where I recieved a tetanus shot to deal with the dog scratch and drugs to deal with burgeoning sinus infection that had kept me up all night.

2 Anti-biotics and a nap later, and I felt almost human. I was treated like the luckiest woman on earth when [ profile] k_calypso refused to change her plans and came home with me. We were joined shortly thereafter by the brave [ profile] the_nita and LB. K & LB had a blast with chalk and digging in the garden, as well as chowing down on HotDogs which were the inaugural meal on the BBQ.

While they were playing and the dogs were cookings, the lovely ladies assisted / totally ASSEMBELED my 10 piece patio set.!! I'm a lucky lucky lady.

We were later joined by [ profile] gracyelala and the beautiful little M who immediately joined the brigade. LB went home with his mommy and K & M became circus performers for the rest of us adults. When they could drag our attention away from DDR that is!

Sometime around midnight, the party came to an end with K being sent to bed, and M making her way home with her parents.

Saturday - we woke around 9 am, and struggled through coffee and morning visitations with the neighbours. I dropped [ profile] k_calypso off at the Brick, enroute to [ profile] trinshadow's to look after her weeboy so she and hubby could join the Beer Tour. As ever, weeboy charmed me thoroughly and by the time the folks got home, had me all cozied up on the couch, snuggling a boobie!!!

After a "full throttle" wake up, I headed to TO for dinner with [ profile] curgoth & [ profile] neeuqdrazil, before leaving for BENT. I enjoyed watching heads turn as the three of us meandered hand in hand through downtown TO.

BENT was a very full and busy environment. Suffice it to say, in this venue, that I left the hall around 4am, taking [ profile] knotty_mark back home, where he managed to live up to his name.

Sunday at 10:30am, the "I MISS YOU, MOMMY" call came in, and I struggled myself upright, into a cup of coffee, and a pleasant banter or two, with a significant insight for myself in the conversation with [ profile] ladygiggles and [ profile] knotty_mark. I proceeded to spend far too much time in my own head returning to Waterloo where I collected my child at chez [ profile] trinshadow.

Realizing I'd been abandoned by the ephemeral [ profile] k_calypso, I spent time instead with [ profile] gracyelala and the "other sister" letting M & K play around outside. I sat still and, possibly, dozed whilst my hair was twined into tiny braids and lamented my inability to "pull off" dreadlocks.

Upon arriving home, I realized that I'm indeed toasted and tired and should type out/process some stuff for them that needs to know, and just be still. I cancelled the DDR date for this evening with the hopes of postponing it for later in the week.

Speaking of later in the week.

On deck we have ...Scrabble for Monday (depending on K's mood and behaviour), DDR either Tues or Wed, [ profile] athena_51?? Thursday dinner?? please confirm...and there was a naughty mention from [ profile] knotty_mark for a possible Friday...Sat sees...[ profile] the_nita BDAY celebrations, and dinner with [ profile] neeuqdrazil (I'm hoping)...

Somewhere in there, I'm hoping to paint some as that STILL hasn't happened... LMAO.

So there you have it folks... A life. In the making.

To all the well-wishers...

I am grateful that I had company scheduled... I followed through on those plans and it was...endearing and relaxing and more than a little inebriating...

On the down side, my low self-esteem triggered a bit of unjustified anger... I'm dealing...and will deal.

**hugs** to all...R&G for me tomorrow night!!

Seriously, NRE is a pretty powerful force. I could feel myself dropping before he even left... I picked up a lovely bottle of Trius Red that now stands empty. I did NOT drink it alone. The folks that had my kidlet brought her back, stayed for food and shared the wine.

Now that tired one is tucked in bed, and I am not far behind her.

My sinuses are not happy so it may be the couch for me, just so I can breathe.

Time to make the kidlet videos to watch on her gameboy in the car tomorrow..and then take my sore, sorry ass to bed. There's muscles in my body today that I'm not sure I ever had before!!

Science Centre tomorrow...and MARVEL HEROES.

Honest Intimacy
Virgo Daily Horoscope

A desire for intimacy today may find you trusting your loved one enough to open
yourself to a deeper and more honest relationship experience. When we take the
chance to share our private selves with a special someone and are met with
acceptance, it can intensify our romantic feelings and create a stronger bond.
Though society often talks of intimacy as purely physical, true intimacy
involves revealing our hearts and souls as well. To know each other intimately
means to have profound understanding of the most personal and private aspects of
one another’s being. It means to know not just the personality that the world
sees but the innermost thoughts, fears, and dreams that motivate the choices
your partner makes. By following your desire for intimacy today, you are
connecting with a loved one on a soul-to-soul basis.

The unfolding of intimacy in the early stages of a relationship can be deeply
moving. But levels of intimacy grow over time, throughout the lifetime of a
partnership. We can only express so much of ourselves in words, and it can be
difficult to be completely honest with ourselves, so the information we give our
partner is limited to what we ourselves understand. But over time mannerisms and
actions reveal more to our partner than perhaps we ever knew about ourselves.
This is how relationships reflect us back to ourselves and help us grow. By
opening yourself up to this experience today, you are embracing intimacy—one of
life's deepest and most profound feelings.

Is a great concept...

But when I've spent 28.5 hrs already this week drafting court papers, it does NOT make me happy to cut into my comp day to finish said court papers, file them with the court house then try to serve them to clients who refuse to open their door to me.

Oh...and before I have to be in Hamilton for my Dr's appt at 10:45...

**hmmm...maybe I can talk a colleague into serving for me!!**

Thankfully, once it is done, I intend to BE FREE for the weekend...or at least until late day Saturday!!!

The thought of taking the new piercing for a test to say the least...

I'll get through tomorrow with a smile on my face...hrm...wonder if the client will think I LIKE court if I have a smile on my face...

A 21 page affidavit......NOPE...I don't like court or I'd have taken it in sooner.
