A little of this and a little of that...

Tag...I'm it!!! I feel so loved because not only did one of my bloggy friends tag me...but 2 did. I'm a slacker and didn't post when Staci over at Playing house tagged me...I had every intention of getting around to it...but just didn't. So then yesterday when Impulsive Addict over at
Confessions of an Impulsive Addict tagged me, I felt super guilty and figured I had better get on this.

Thanks for tagging me with this one girls...it's a fun one!!!

8 Things I Am Looking Forward To

1. Date night tonight!
2. The boy's birthday party
3. BBQ'ed food...YUM
4. Camping this summer
5. Hanging out at the beach
6. Planning my 30th birthday in VEGAS (it's still over a year away but we need to start planning soon)
7. Girls weekend away...no boys allowed (we do this twice a year...once at the beginning of summer and then again at the end).
8. The boyfriend and I celebrating our 2 year anniversary (the day after the boy's birthday is the day we met).

8 Things I Did Yesterday

1. Bought my lunch for the first time this week...I've been a good girl and brought my lunch every other day (this is huge...I'm a former "buy my lunch every single day" girl...since I've been trying to get in shape I find it's easier to bring a healthy lunch than to try and buy one).
2. Booked the community club for the boy's birthday party.
3. Informed the boy of my plans for his birthday party and prayed that he would love them...he did....yay mommy!
4. Went to an information night at the boy's school.
5. Went home to research what the heck a "Balanced School Day" is anyway...the principal is very wordy and I was kind of confused after she talked for 1.5 hours.
6. Forgot to change my shoes when I left work so my pretty ballet flats ended up covered in MUD...yuck.
7. Thought about drinking beer...but then remembered my new rule...ONLY on Friday lol.
8. Spent most of my work day on Blogger.

8 Things I Wish I Could Do

1. Go home right this minute and get some more sleep!
2. Lose the 'tire' that seems to have developed around my tummy area.
3. I wish we could afford to buy a house...I hate renting...Maybe someday.
4. I wish I could fire all the ppl I work with that annoy me...I'm really not that easily annoyed but there are definitely a few ppl that get under my skin.
5. Wear sandals and not have my feet freeze...soon...
6. Go on a shopping spree...that someone else paid for.
7. Road Trip...I haven't been on one in a long time and they are always so much fun.
8. Play an instrument...the only thing I ever learnt how to play was the flute and I hated it. I love playing guitar hero and think playing a real guitar would be lots of fun.

8 Shows I Watch

1. Big Brother (my favorite...too bad it's only on once a year and in the Summer)
2. American Idol (go Adam!)
3. Survivor (only because I was suckered into the survivor pool here at work...go Coach!)
4. Weeds (it's wacky and I love it)
5. Desperate Housewives
6. What not to Wear
7. Family Guy (the boyfriend and I watch this almost everynight lol...losers? yeah I know we are)
8. Intervention

8 People I Tag

This is where I am not going to follow the rules...I'm going to tag you all...but only if you want to do this (but I think you all should because it's lots of fun!).

In other news...

Our City has declared a 'state of emergency' because of the rivers flooding.

You can read about it here:

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/now-is-not-the-time-to-relax-43164927.html

Thankfully, we don't live anywhere near the rivers...but the boyfriends old apartment (he moved out of it last May) is severly at risk of being flooded...we have a few friends in that area so they've had to go out and sandbag to protect their properties. I can't even imagine. Hundreds of homes have been evacuated and these people are staying in trailers, going to community centres for food and clothing...I really feel for them...I know I would hate to have to leave my home for an undetermined amount of time.

And on to yet one more topic...

You may have noticed above that I mentioned a "Balanced School Day"...basically instead of the traditional morning recess, lunch, afternoon recess...the boy's school wants to introduce the balanced school day schedule...which consists of 2 nutrition breaks and 2 activity breaks...confused? Yeah me too. LOL.

If you are interested here's a link:
http://www.peopleforeducation.com/balanced_day

I see many benefits to this type of schedule...but now I have to send my child to school with 2 small lunches as opposed to 1 lunch and 2 small snacks...it's a change...one I'm sure I'll get used to...but have I mentioned before that I hate change???

K, that's enough rambling from me! HAPPY FRIDAY!

That is strange about the balanced school day, but I guess it makes sense.

Glad you guys aren't affected by the flood.

Love reality tv.

And blogging at work!

Impulsive Addict said...

Ummm....you only drink on Friday's now? I think we need to break up. I can only be friends with people that drink as much OR MORE than myself.

I ♥ Big Brother!!!! I can't WAIT for the new season to start!! =)

Great list btw~

Love the list! Never heard of the balanced day, but it seems to make sense... good luck with the birthday party! I always cop out and have it somewhere so I don't have to do the work :-)

Love the lists!

Let's go do this one together: "Go on a shopping spree...that someone else paid for."! Wouldn't that be awesome?!

And BTW, thank God you're not near the rising waters. Scary stuff.

Stop by and tell me about your kid's activities!
Life...EXAGGERATED
