    Food

    Red Wine, 2 squares of Dark Lindt Cranberry
    Beef stew, cauliflower, raspberries with whipping cream, one chocolate covered cheesecake “bite”. Protein shake, Red Wine, Shepherd’s Pie, Apple Upside Down Cake with Caramel Sauce

    I didn’t eat very much today…I probably didn’t “need” the cheesecake “bite”…

    12:00 – 10:00am

    I went to bed at 10:30, but didn’t fall asleep until midnight. This morning I enjoyed cuddling with my butterflies ☺ I drove my Daughter to her friend’s (they were going shopping today) I uploaded some photos to Flickr today and I noticed that I have NO audio on my MacBook Pro… I can't seem to figure it out...

    We are supposed to go to my sister’s for “Pre New Year’s Eve” drinks tonight…

    • Very cool icy photos.

      Very not cool that college son's buddy peed on your pillow... At least it wasn't the pull out couch...

      I sympathize with the upset belly yesterday...I had a bit of that today, likely due to a few dietary indiscretions last evening (potato chips, dip and candy). At least it was short lived.

      • I love the ice photos! It's a little surreal to me, it was nearly 40*C today here in Perth!

        Your pee story reminded me of when I had a party when I was younger. We all crashed in the one room on a bunch of mattresses. One of the guys woke up in the middle of the night and walked into the wardrobe and proceeded to take a piss all over all my brother's shoes! Gross I know and my brother was not happy! I hope you do get a new pillow.

        Enjoy your New Year's Eve Eve Eve drinks.

          Thanks. (NourishedEm - you don't need to rub it in )

          It's funny, I was in the car looking at the lake with my parents and they'd just finished talking about their photographer friend who spends TONS on time setting up a shot "just so" and how he comments on the fact that one "needs" all this gear to take a professional photo. I rolled my eyes, grabbed my iPhone4, hopped out of the car while saying "The best camera is the one that's with you" and grabbed those shots

          Eeewwww. Drunk teen boys are gross...

          I saw him again last night. I walked up to him and smiled. He blushed and asked what the store's name was where I got the cushion. He'll get me one. (I've known this boy since he was a baby) It's this cushion. (He's lucky - it's on sale this week)

          Short lived is good. Mine lasted about 24 hours...

          I did. A little too much...It was a "Red Solo Cup" night...






          I stayed in bed till 11:30 today.
          I have a bit of a headache...

            Food

            2 year-old cheddar, 2 slices of Cajun chicken lunch meat, cucumber slices.
            Raspberries and heavy cream.
            Virgin NorCal
            Pork ribs (with a non primal sauce) roasted carrots and potatoes
            Raspberries and heavy cream, one chocolate covered cheesecake “bite”, 4 squares of Dark Lindt with Cranberries

            Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
            A fair amount of “goodies”, I’ll be glad when the cheesecake and chocolate is gone.
            However I’ve decided to leave the caramels and cookies alone. My stomach does NOT like them…

            Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
            I tried another chin-up. If I start with my arms bent at 90 degrees I can do ¾ of a pull-up (the last ¾ - the “easy” ¾ )

            12:30am – 11:30am

            Cleaning. Reading MDA. Laundry. Dishes.
            I still felt “blah” today. A bit of a headache hung around all day...

            We are driving University Son back to school tomorrow. Early. 2 hour drive. 2 cars. We got a car for him and equipped it with snow tires. (Some of his Christmas presents included an emergency car kit, and a scraper, shovel and sand/salt.) He’s starting a co-op term and has to drive 20 minutes to another town to his co-op job, so we are going up with him and traveling the route to work with him.

            • Too funny about the kid blushing!! I've been looking at that same fold up cushion for when the boys have friends over.

              You had a rather good evening last night, so it would seem, and so you are feeling today . Feel better tomorrow for the drive.

                The boy bought me a new cushion. He hasn't delivered it yet.
                When Eldest Son slept on the cushion (before the "incident") he claimed that it was more comfortable than the pull out couch (which has an extra 3" foam on top).

                  Food

                  Edo Japan Hawaiian Chicken (no rice)
                  Vodka & pepsi
                  2 fast fry pork loin chops
                  2 coconut hearts

                  Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes

                  Well... I got wet feet today. The flat suede boots I wore were NOT waterproof…
                  Oh, and the pepsi...

                  Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint

                  no

                  Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain

                  11:00 (laid awake for about an hour) - 7:15am

                  Packed University Son’s stuff into his car. My Farmer and U.S. drove the car and I followed in my Beetle. Half way up my washer fluid stopped working on the driver’s side (of course). 2 ½ hours later, we unpacked his stuff. They have SNOW. Then we drove the 30 minutes to his co-op placement and back again, so University Son would know the route.

                  He took us to the mall to his favorite place for lunch, Edo Japan. (My Farmer bought) It’s “fast food”, but they stir-fry the meat and veggies right in front of you. I asked for no rice and they gave me double veggies. There was a lot of shredded cabbage. I left half of the veggies on my plate. I’d order it again.

                  After we left him we drove home, in the rain, and my washer fluid completely ran out...

                  When we got to our hometown, we stopped at our mechanic’s and he filled it up for me and then offered us a drink. I had vodka, but the only mix he had was pepsi It was SO SWEET...I should have had it with water...

                  A quick “snack” for supper and then I took my Daughter into the city (1 hour drive) in the rain. We did several returns and then she bought some running clothing. Tight pants and a T-shirt and a long sleeved shirt. She’s running in the “Resolution Run” tomorrow night with my sisters. She hasn’t really practiced. She’ll run it easily...

                  I have a very convenient toenail injury so I won’t be running

                            I think I did pretty well considering it was New Years Eve
                            I avoided the Shooter Bar. I only got my sore toe stepped on once.
                            I didn’t get drunk, fall down or throw up!!!

                            Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint

                            Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain

                            10:30am – 3:50am

                            I woke up and found a brand new sleeping cushion in my kitchen

                            I took my Daughter out to meet my sisters after lunch. They left at 3 for the Resolution Run in London. She ran the 5K in 32 minutes. (not as good as her last time, but she didn’t practice AT ALL for the race) My sisters dropped her off at her friend’s house after the race.

                            We were invited to a friend’s place for supper. There were 16 for supper. 7 “adults” and 9 “kids”; (One of the kids was College Son. The youngest kid was 19). I brought the mushrooms (I fried them there – butter, garlic, rosemary, red wine) After supper we had to walk uptown (the Palm Bay was for the walk) to meet a school bus that was taking us 2 towns away to a Stag & Doe for another friend’s son. There were 41 people that got on the bus up town and there were already a bunch of people on the bus. I think my Farmer said there was over 70 on the bus (at $10/person return) I just know it was crowded and HOT. There were FIVE people in my seat!!

                            The Stag & Doe was typical. Crowded, loud, shooter bar, sticky dance floor, with not enough seats (man, I sound OLD). I’d brought my own Club Soda and Lime Juice I had one vodka and then I drank “Virgin” NorCals for the rest of the evening. I got my foot stepped on by a drunk older man who wanted to dance, I got beer spilled on me by another drunk guy, I was given the “invisible” treatment by an ex-friend (She hugged my Farmer and wished him a Happy New Years and then turned her head and walked away from me…whatever) I wore a feathered party hat. I bought another vodka around 11:30, ‘cause I still had a ticket and I thought I “should”. Right after that they set out complementary sparkling wine. I only had a few sips of each. I ate a little from the midnight lunch. The friend (where we had supper) said there was an early bus at 12:30 and she was taking her daughter home on it because her daughter didn’t feel good (she wasn't drunk) I decided to go with them instead of waiting for the REALLY crowded, REALLY drunk 1:30 bus It was a quiet ride back, we convinced the driver to let us of right at the house I had a Chai while we waited for everyone else.

                            They all came pouring off the bus in front of the house (one of the boys fell off the bus) and inside. We brought out the left over food and they ate again. Around 3 one of the girls was going to walk home (about a 10 minute car ride away) We were leaving then, and I told her there was no way I was letting her walk. One of our friends wanted to go home as well, but his wife was spending the night (so was College Son). So I gave the girl a ride home (in the opposite direction from where we live) and then dropped our friend off at his house. Finally home and in bed before 4am…

                            I sound grumpy and complaining, but I had a really good time. It wasn't the "best" New Years Eve, but it wasn't the worst...

                                We made chili to take to a family gathering in St Marys. Halfway through making it my Farmer decided that he really didn’t want to go. (His family, his choice) We vegged for a bit, and then I took my Daughter to my parents’ for a visit. (My sister and her daughter went back to Ottawa this morning) My Farmer stayed home and held the couch down, but came out later for supper. We got home around 10ish.
