Confession Friday

I confess I have gone to the gym 3 times this week. 3! Amazing! While I feel like I have been hit by a Mack truck, it does feel good to have exercised so hard.

I confess I am disappointed by certain individuals who have tarnished the reputation of one of my favourite cities in the world. Vancouver worked so hard to show the world at the 2010 Olympic games what a beautiful, creative, peaceful, multi-faceted city it is. Struck down by a bunch of dumb asses who were mad their favourite hockey team didn't win the Stanley Cup. Really? You rioted over a hockey game and made the world think a bunch of ass hats live in Vancouver. For shame. Don't worry Vancouver - those who know and love you, know this was the actions of a few and not a representation of the many.

I confess we have some nice Father's Day plans for Sunday. Maybe a little picnic in a park with some BBQ'ing happening. Hot dogs (of the turkey variety) and some macaroni salad accompanied by some kind of delicious summer type dessert.

I confess I am annoyed by the mail strike. Mostly because I like getting mail and we haven't had any all week. Plus I need to send in Ade's name change so we can move on to applying for Citizenship but need a new name change form because Vital Statistics did not tell me I am the applicant for my son so now I need to re-do it. Bummer.

I confess summer is going fast already. It is the middle of June. Pretty soon it will be September. Yup, it goes that fast.

I confess I enrolled the wee boy in a parenting with music class for parents and their toddlers for the fall. I am looking forward to it because there is nothing he likes better then music.

I confess we have one gym class left for the wee boy. When we first started it was all we could do to get him to just run in a circle. I feared we had signed him up to soon for activities. Each week he has progressed and each week added a new skill as we moved through the stations. This past week I barely had to help as he just blasted through almost everything on his own. AND he even hung on to the parallel bar and did peek-a-boo. Next week is the last class and I am sad but oh so proud to see our dude learning so much so quickly.

I confess I will be out in Vancouver twice this summer with Ade so if anyone wants to get together send me an email.

I confess I hate Lima beans. And liver. And perogies. And onions. And peas.

I confess it is Mojito season! I love Mojitos!

Next week is our last week in Little Gym too! I wonder how I will get That Girl to run off her energy!

Your Father's Day plans sound lovely! I hope it's a great weekend for you all!

You hate perogies?! What?? You're totally crazy!

I love mojitos too. Did I tell you I wanted to name this the summer of mojitos?? I confess despite this lovely thought I still haven't had one this summer. Next week?

Oh Rana, I envy you your gym time. I haven't made it to the gym on at least 7 weeks. Hoping to get back but just haven't yet found our stride yet. Enjoy your Father's Day BBQ. Sounds like a nice way to spend the day.

It's so true, about Vancouver. The response towards what happened has far outweighed the stupidity that happened. It's bitter sweet.

I could not believe it when I saw the pictures of what happened in Vancouver - just didn't think Canadians did that sort of thing!

OK, I'm with you on the liver and lima beans...ok, I have never actually tried liver as the thought of it makes me gag. But, perogies? Mmm...cooked in bacon fat with onions? So bad for you, but soooo good!

So glad that you and Ade are having fun in your gym class. Maybe there is something offered in the summer that is similar?

Let me know when you are coming to Vancouver, as you know I so want to hang with you!!!! Mojitos on a sunny patio are on me!

Don't suppose you will be in Van around E Camp time?? And I agree with what you say about the city... I am getting pissed at people who are all, "oh, Vancouver should be ashamed." No, actually, the nutbars should be ashamed, everyone else not so much.

And now I want a mojito.
