So yeah I broke the medusa bone in my knee. And now I feel useless. I can’t drive, I can’t bring things up or downstairs (so no laundry or bringing up the Christmas tree). Getting dressed is s challenge as I can’t put shoes or socks on. It’s even a pain (seriously) to sit in the toilet. I am discovering muscles I haven’t used in a while and one turned into a Charlie horse in the middle of the might; and for those few moments both legs were in pain

Now just have to wait and hear my bosses reaction when I tell him I won’t (more like can’t) come to work this week.

Well time to clear some of my pvr as I’m not going anywhere the next few days.

Wish me a speedy recovery

So far what a crap-tastic week so far. First Monday I go to my appointment at the dealership to have my OnStar updated from 2G to 4G only to find out they don’t have the part. But the next day they contact me AND DO have the part so have to go back to the dealership again. Wednesday I go to 2 Christmas parties (one at work with snacks that sucked, and the division one) I actually won a draw prize 3 free kids meals at Montana’s for kids 12 and under and expires December 31st; I am trying to give them away before I throw them away. Today on the bus to work my watch strap broke so that means off to Walmart I go to pick up a replacement…I really don’t want to ask what’s next cause I already know the 2 assholes I work with are off tomorrow so will have to do their job too. I do plan coming in earlier so I can leave even sooner after I put in my time (crosses fingers).


With the right motivation…

Well I am sure with the right motivation (and coffee) I can get my Christmas shopping done; well at least the presents the stocking stuffers are a different story as I am not sure what to put in their stockings. Of course though most of the shopping I have left are gift cards. Still trying to decide if I want to buy my oldest a TV with a Google Chromecast thingy.

Its he week off from my youngest so hopefully can get whatever I can’t get done today this week; even if that means stopping at the Rideau Centre on the way home from work.

Hmm really thought I would have more to say than that. Maybe I’ll add something tomorrow.

Have a Nice Day

I know I didn’t write this yesterday (but I wanted too).  I was on the bus as normal and there is this lady who I’ll call one of my bus-crushes (someone I find attractive on the bus) sat with me again. Of course we never spoke, but when I was getting off the bus; she smiled and told me to have a nice day. That alone made my day.

Yes I also told her to have a nice day too 😉

Now if I only knew her name.

Weekly Rant

black-friday-shopping-crowdWell in a month it will be Christmas so I can stop stressing what to get everyone, cause right now it looks like I will be buying a crap load of gift cards (albeit some have asked for them).

I have a few things left to buy for my youngest and maybe one or 2 things for my fiancé. I haven’t even started with my oldest yet, and she will be the toughest to shop for. I know that we at least have 2 things on her list (everything else wasn’t available t be shipped to Canada).

Speaking of shipping. I d have some items being shipped to me (I think from China) and they gave me a range for the delivery date anywhere from December 5 to December 27th – UGH!. For 2 of them its not as much ass a big deal since they are for me, but the other 2 are gifts and would prefer them asap.

OK so get this. You know I purchased a car at the end of October. I was told by the sales guy (Myers Orleans) he would contact OnStar to set it up for me (he didn’t I had to call November 3rd) and they told me they would have to ship a part to upgrade my car. I contacted the guy at the dealership and he said the part hadn’t arrived yet, but would call me as soon as it did. I called OnStar on November 23 and they checked the order and it was delivered November 4th (WTF?), so I forwarded an email to the dealership letting them know, and bonehead was like contacting me right away letting me know my part arrived…duh.

Hopefully thins weekend I will b able to get out and do stuff cause I hate sitting home doing nothing. I should buy a new shirt and tie for the Christmas party next weekend, an maybe get a few other things off my shopping list – wish me luck

Just the norm around here…

To make matters simple, lets say I woke up at 6:30 which mean I slept in an hour; woo hoo. I have my coffee and Jasper is up playing with his toy – hopefully not destroying it. Well we managed to get some shopping done for Gwyn last night at Toys on Fire. Bought her 6 Funkos (2 rare and 4 regular ones) Just hope she doesn’t buy any of them today at Ottawa Comiccon (and with that I put the receipt away just in case). I also know the 3 that I am getting (Yoda, Grumpy and a Storm Trooper) since I picked them out. Sometimes it’s nice to know what you’re getting, and other times it’s nice to be surprised.

Right now I would say that I am half way done my shopping. I still have to start buying for my oldest daughter and she has been sending me links online for a while now. I know she will be getting gift cards again; not that it’s that I am lazy, but some things you can’t buy for her (grocery gift card for example). Then of course there’s the matter of style and taste – which I may not have being a father lol

Hope it doesn’t start freezing rain here for a while. Part of me wants to go to Comiccon and part of me wants to do something else (shopping of course).

Well just ran out of motivation – guess I need more coffee.

Ugh Winter Tire Time…


Well it’s almost winter here. We had a dusting of snow here and it hasn’t gone away yet 😦
It’s not in any huge amount and we can still see the grass and pavement; at least for the time being.
Since I am off today (Federal Employee on a Federal Statutory holiday) I decided to have my winter tired put on. I ad to shell out $1000 for the tires and the rims and I am pretty sure (I hope) it includes installation. After that’s done, depending on how much money I have left will depend what I do with the rest of my day.  There’s a few things I could get at the store and think I may need one or 2 of them I need, but I am pretty sure I can wait till the weekend.
Had a kinda sucky weekend. No one wanted to do anything and since I wake up early makes the day just feel so, so long. I guess it was a good thing as I am waiting (as per above) to see how much money I have left.
I guess I’ll go washout my empty coffee cup, put Jasper in his crate and go get things done.
