My Body Hurts

Advertisements

Yesterday (at the time of writing this) my roommate convinced me to climb Boucherie Mountain again. We’ve been walking around it to get some good mileage in. Well, she did a good job. Here are some pictures from out first real hike of the year!

We tried to be up before the sun came up, but the sun beat us (bully). Even though we couldn’t beat the sun, this view is just perfect. Onto breakfast, picnic style! Midna is such a good girl, she loves hiking with us! Sitting and waiting for mum and mum to finish their breakfast though, not so much. My feet are sore and my lungs are sad, but this is some great quality time! Well, back down the mountain I guess.

It’s just after 8:30am and I just got out of the shower. My feet still hurt and breakfast wasn’t enough, so I’m going to go cook something. Calorie burning makes one hungry. I love the views up there so much, I hope you enjoy them too!!!! Climbing the mountain is and always will be worth every minute it takes. 

Be safe out there, especially if you live near me with all the bears, mosquitoes, and rattlesnakes!

Went Out Again

Oh, my goodness! I get to go for a walk with the boyfriend and his precious pup too??? FRICK YEAH!

We ended up going the wrong way and walking way too far. My feet hurt and my legs are aching. And my underwear was rubbing my legs wrong so that fabric burn is just… Great… Tonight, dinner and relaxing on the couch, and only that. Catch everyone tomorrow morning.

The Next Morning

My feet and legs are surprisingly okay today! My hip on the other hand, is straight up fucked. Standing in the mirror, I don’t know if it’s my brain or what, but my butt also looks extra good today too. Maybe Onlyfans isn’t too distant of a dream..

Story Time

Back in high school I took dance instead of the P.E. class. And one day I decided I was going to try my hand at a pirouette, or three, and I landed very wrong. Turns out there isn’t much muscle in my hip and the bone grinded on the other bone and… yeah… Long story short my hip is messed up and will be for a long time. Slow muscle gain can help a lot, at least that’s what I was told years ago. Since then, I started working my hip more through basic workouts. 

But Yeah

I had a fun day. Between the mountain, both my dog children, and the sense of adventure, it was a great day. Thanks for coming with, and have a great day!

Onward Journeys

Where the frick did March go? Can you believe it’s already April??? I was busy all March and have made some decisions finally on what I’m doing “long term” now. Kind of anyway, I can be indecisive, but we’ll see how this goes!

Shadow is again, being Shadow

What Has Been Going On?

First big thing, that job I applied for, I got it! Huge pay increase, however I am working again full time. I hate full time jobs, I never have the energy to do anything after my work week. But with this job, buying a house it that much closer to becoming a reality.

Buying a house sucks, and if you’ve talked to me for any length of time, you know just how much it sucks... So with that in mind, I think I’m just going to replace mine. There’s a couple companies in town that build brand new modular homes and do the whole delivery / install for you. I’ve been looking into them and they’re beautiful. All the space, new appliances, the whole lot man, SO NEW AND PRETTY! This route gives me the “buying a new house” feel without too much “fear of change”. At least in my mind anyway...

Streaming has been a hit! I love every day I do it. There’s some regulars popping in, and I’m really remembering reoccurring names. It’s just amazing that I get to do something like this! Come check that out!

And Midna being Midna

Boyfriend is Much Farther Away Now

My boyfriend is moving. He’s gone to the other end of town now. And that super sucks, but at the same time, he can afford to live. I’ve been helping him move and holy frick I’m sore. I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard in my life.
Today is day five of him moving. We’re finally done all the actual moving stuff, and now it’s just getting him settled in. My body doesn’t hurt as much as it did which is amazing. These past few days have been like going to a gym! 
Even though him moving sucks, I’ve had a lot of fun. And I know he’s not gone gone so… Yeah. 

Dad and I at “Plant Land”

Stay Tuned

I’m making up a post on what I’m doing with my house in more detail for later. So keep an eye open for that! Oh, and keep an eye open for my soon to be blonde pictures again! But anyway,

Thanks for coming with on my month end adventure! Have an amazing day and stay safe out there!

Mid March and I Have News

Advertisements

Been a bit huh? Don’t worry, I’m good. Streaming and job hunting have taken over my life a lot. One hundred percent worth it though, this has been great!

Since we’re half way through March, I figured I’d share some fun things that have been going on in my life. Like that job hunting. I may have (I’m pretty sure I got it,) got a job for another telecommunications company. This time, call center though. Until the world is safer it’s a work from home job too, which is super cool.

* I just woke up, it’s Monday morning and I found out the company I applied for, which is Rogers, just spent twenty-six billion to buy Shaw up. Shaw, being another tech company but mostly west coast based, is a crazy purchase, but for kind of cheap. But yeah, just read the news this morning and wanted to share.

The boyfriend and I were making homemade pasta

Enough About Possible Work

Remember my cute parsley and lettuce? Well, the lettuce died. I didn’t plant them fast enough, and the parsley went full “I’m actually just a yummy weed” mode and started sprouting where it didn’t belong. I’ve replanted a lettuce and now I also have a garlic. Little gardens in my kitchen are going great.

I’m thinking of getting my boyfriend a little herb plant. He’s moving to the other side of town, so he’ll need a housewarming gift. Actually that parsley once I replant it might be perfect.

Oh yeah, he’s moving. Friggen expensive rent man… But with that, I may be bussing more. It’s quite the distance and if I can even just surprise him at work, it’s one hundred percent worth the trip. Maybe some more Bus Adventures in the future! Because public transportation is bizarre. That or I’ll be having more adventures in general with my car.

The Lettuce and Garlic

A Car? What?

I know I know, my amazing car that I keep not completely fixing and not insuring. She’s still sitting there, in the driveway. Well, my sweet baby got in trouble for not having plates. Apparently that’s “against park regulations”… So I may be forced into having her work soon. I’ll be looking into a cover for my back seats for Midna if I do that too.

I’m excited, if I get that back on the road, I’ll have to look at going to Vancouver for a weekend. That’ll be a fun story too! I love that drive so much, and it’s, oh wait. It’s not April, I can’t go yet, there’s still snow and I don’t have winter tires. Never mind, we’ll look at that again later.

We opened my blinds up

But Yeah

That’s been my life lately. I know, it’s exciting seeing all of the things in my life slowly coming together! Want to see more of me? Catch me on Twitch before this job takes over my life! Thanks for stopping by today, and be safe out there!

Happy No More 2020

Advertisements

Guys! We did it! 2020 is over, and we welcome 2021 into our lives! I’m so excited, and with my excitement, I’ve decided to do some New Years Resolutions again! I say again, I’m going to have a look and see if I did them last year at all… Found them! Wow, I was super generic with those, huh? Life was thrown quite astray this, or I guess last year. But in all honesty, I had a pretty good year. There are some habits I would like to build though, and some goals I have in mind for the future. I know, blogging on a Friday? What is this? The new normal, and I promise I’ll get into that soon.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Onto those goal things!

The body is a goal a lot of people go for when looking at “improvements”. I don’t have the worst diet, but I do want to have arms that give the impression that I could kill a man. Like, that just sounds fun, you know? My amazing wife, her boyfriend and my boyfriend all go to the gym, so I’m going to have to also go with eventually. I’ll have a post more devoted to this later, but my real goal is to do one pullup unassisted. Mostly because being Lara Croft sounds super fun! But I can’t fake something like a pullup, I have to actually work at it.

No matter what, this year, I’m going to fix and SELL my trailer. I’m going to do it. Nothing is going to stop me! If I work hard, and start kicking my own butt into gear, I know I can do it. I’ve got to make a list of things I need vs things I think I need. As an example, I’d love to have a huge yard for Midna, but if I had a smaller yard and lived close to a dog park, I’d be set. My kids mean a lot to me, so being able to give them the life they deserve is a real goal of mine. Plus, windows for the cats to look out of, I’m just really wanting that.

My blog, I love it so much. And I want to be able to continue making posts that don’t totally suck. With that, I’m going to change up my schedule for the new year. Multimedia Monday’s are sticking around for sure, but my Tuesday and Thursday are moving to Wednesday and Friday. I’ll be sticking to my “noon-ish” times as well. Since today is Friday, I figured I’d start now! With all my time off, I’m going to try and being around more just in general, so catch me on mostly Twitter honestly. My kids are taking over my Instagram.

I own so many books. You know what I don’t do often? Read. I also have a huge novel draft built, you know what I don’t do? Write pages in that instead of on here... Not that I don’t enjoy blogging or anything, I just want to finish that book eventually. Maybe even try and do that this year, hopefully! I know I can do it if I just actually do it... A chapter before bed of reading, and at least a paragraph of writing or editing a day, I’ll make it through everything real quick!

Enough Resolutions, what am I doing today?

But yeah, 2021! Here’s to a great year! We started off 2021 with the destruction of the Death Star and a nice glass of wine. Although granted, I had too much wine yesterday, but whatever, it’s fine. My amazing boyfriend made a salmon dinner to send off 2020 with, and my god that man makes some good food. Can I say I’m going to keep him for the cooking?

Starting off my morning of this new year with a nice cup of tea. As for breakfast, that sounds like a problem for later. Also this morning, waking up next to someone who actually cares about me, 10/10 great time. Being able to relax and enjoy the vibe of the new year is definitely the best idea. I lied, I’m making bacon for breakfast. My boyfriends kitchen has some real goodies, so why not right?

WE DID IT!!!

Thank you so much for another amazing year! Be safe, we’ll talk again soon! And have a happy new year!

Survived Another Holiday

Advertisements

Christmas itself was actually kind of fun this year. Had more customers Christmas eve than what I wanted, but still not enough to stay open. And Boxing Day was too quiet considering the day it was. I’m not sure how my other stores did, but man was I quiet. I’ve worked retail for years, and the holidays have never been my favourite. I stretched myself too thin this year with hours at work though, so come the new year, I’m going to try and relax again. 

Stealing more pictures from my friend overseas

I did the Christmas eve shift by myself. My boss was celebrating his 32nd birthday, so I took the shift. Made sense to me, and if I didn’t have enough customers by three in the afternoon then I was allowed to leave early. Spoiler, didn’t see enough people! I got home about half after three which was nice. My amazing boyfriend even came over with some presents! Being cared about is kind of the best. My roommate and I also now have matching pajamas!

Christmas day, the big day! Quiet, peaceful, and spent with family. Just the way I like it! We all got some good stuff, great food, and some amazing new memories too. I shared the funny tags my dad made for the presents even. Tight restrictions for visitors didn’t ruin our Christmas either! Mind you, we were only really missing my dads girlfriends family, who we video chatted with for a bit. Overall, successful holiday! I’m actually glad I didn’t work it this year.

Boxing day! The busiest day in retail! Man, I went in prepared! Breakfast, caffeinated tea, and even a bra! At about noon, it really hit us that we were going to be, well, quiet. I think I had two, maybe three sales before I went home an hour and a half early. ON BOXING DAY! Whether is lack of stock or the pandemic, I really don’t know, But it was quite a let down. 

My brothers cute shirt

Anyway, I lived. I was bored out of my mind, but I lived. That’s all I have for today though, so stay warm and safe out there!
