Where am I going with this?

I enjoy reading blogs much more than I like writing mine. It's my morning thing: I sip on coffee checking my mail and browsing through blogs. When I write, it disturbs me sipping my coffee since I have to have two hands on the keyboard. I don't have a fancy template, nor links, nor pictures. The last time I updated my profile was about a year ago. I don't have a sit down job hence don't have the time to post at work. I can't be bothered with posting at home. At times, I see it as a colossal waste of time.

It's a small world afterall

Phil managed to get his hands on two free tickets for an Alhouette versus Edmonton game last night. So after work, he picked me up and we head off to watch it. I don't mind football, don't know all the rules but find it entertaining enough. Of course we show up fashionably late into the 2nd quarter and the McGill stadium is packed. As we are walking up the stairs making our way through the crowd of screaming and drunk fans, who is sitting in our row about five seats away? My high school sweetheart and one of my high school friends. Of all things surprising and WEIRD! To have one of my first "loves" and my present LOVE sitting within 10 meters apart! So they met, shook hands, and Phil kept on looking over to analyze wether I have good tastes in guys on not. Funny thing is, he is not looking all that great. Barely changed since he was 16, he has totally lost hios charm. To think of how many girls were jealous of me for being his prom date. He was every teenage girls dream. Black hair, tanned skin, drivining around in a silver volvo, soccer player, did really well in school... Now all I see in him is a macho, overworked, Italian gino who smokes too much and doesn't exercise enough... wow how my tastes have changed!

After a 45 minute jog, I decided to cool off at the public pool near-by. I had the dilemma of choosing which bikini to wear. I have a bout three string bikinis which I voted against since I didn't want young kids, there with day camps, to be giving me stares. Neither did I want looks from old perverted men who stand at the other side of the fence near the pool. So I opted for a bikini which is boy cut at the bottom and covers a bit more at the top. I've had this bathing suit since I am 12 years old which could only mean two things. 1: I have the same shape and size as when I was pre-menopausal. 2:My fashion sense has clearly deteriorated. Either or, it's a sad day... Sad sad day...

A 4 day weekend well spent

With the car over-packed and the dog in the back seat, we got off to a late start on Friday. Once we got to Mont Gosford (three hours away), we had difficulty finding our camp site. Once found, it was quiet, remote, and just a few feet from a river. On Saturday: a 19 km hike which brought us directly on the Canadian/American border. For once I could have half my body in Canada and the other half in the States without being bombarded with questions and potentially pulled over. Sunday and Monday were spent, the three of us, lounging in the sun, feet in the river, sipping sangria/cider/beer/wine, and might I add NAKED! Sex outdoors is always better. Food on the grill is always tastier. I am officially the Smores expert, and Phil is officially not.

You know you're ridiculous when...

you bring a shoe bag on a four-day camping trip. How I love long weekends! Just me, my honey, and my doggie (and my five pairs of shoes). HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Because I can't be bothered with details, I'll stick to point form

- Like always, it all works out in the end. All Phil and I needed was a little time apart to cool down after a major fight. Things are stronger now.
-My teacher is taking what seems to be an ETERNITY to post the grades of our final paper which will determine my final mark. Every semester I find myself compulsively checking if my grade is up. How long does it take to grade a 10 page paper?
-I dropped my second summer class (before it even started). Managerial accounting six hours a week in 30 degree weather? I think not. Even better, I registered for the online section in the fall. I love the comfort of going to school at home in PJs.
-Kimmy and I started playing tennis and we are having a BLAST. I have to learn to separate squash and tennis since techniques in one sport does not help the other.
-Phil and I were on the adventurous side on Monday night. We climbed a fence (and barbwire) in order to take a midnight dip in the public pool which is a couple of blocks away. The most refreshing and exciting swim ever!

It tears me up inside

In my worst nightmares, I never imagined such a fight. I've heard other couples yelling and crying and being incredibly hurtful, but I never thought that would be us. There's so much anger and rage between us I would almost go as far as calling it hatred. Coming home last night, I was expecting my bags to be packed for me and put out on the front porch. Am I exaggerating? Will we get through this? Unlike what you said, its not because I am a princess that I've never been yelled at like that, it's because no human being deserves to be verbally abused for forty minutes straight about everything and nothing. You brought up the touchiest of subjects... Was it to get a reaction out of me or was it to do as much damage as possible? Is it repairable at this point? The house is so lonely without you and the dog. It's our first night apart in a year. I realize I might have pushed you over the edge. I feel the need to talk about things, I am much calmer now. I hope it's not too late.

Sweet relief

I've come to realize I am not nearly as traumatized after getting my down-there poked at when the results are good news. My bi-annual check-up at the gyno yesterday was ultra relieving. My abnormal cells have disappeared and I can now be worry-free for another 6 months. After being prescribed to ALWAYS use condoms and not filling this so-called prescription, I was pessimistic and doubtful that I was in the clear. I went in the examination room feeling strong and on the defensive. I had my speech layed out for him as soon as he guilt triped me for not wearing condoms. I think I shocked him when he didn't see all those iny-miny abnormalities. A part of me wanted to yell out AH-HAH!!! But resisted since I cannot breath when I have these cold, metal instruments and microscope up my down-there. After another biopsy, the bleeding and uncomfort I am experiencing is downplayed by the weight taken off my shoulders.

Escaping the city's heat and humidity

Blistering sun, refreshing lake, naps, tons of food, wine, cider, beer, friends, and a perfect boyfriend... this is what every weekend should be about. After a nice three days at Moe's cottage, I am tanned and well rested.
