A wonderful day

So yesterday my sister and I started our day at 7am. We went to the gym and finished around quarter to 9.

We went through the Tim Horton's drive thru to grab a coffee and a breakfast item and then headed to Esquimalt Lagoon.

(This is the picture Renee took... the one I took of her won't send to my e-mail because it HATES me.... I'll try to get it up here later)

Renee and I did some Yoga on the beach, heh. We stayed there, skipping rocks (well attempting to) and talking until after 10.
We decided that it was time to go somewhere else.
We got in the car and decided that we'd go take a walk around Thetis Lake. On the way there, I was talking about how one weekend I want to drive to Nanaimo just to see my work's Nanaimo office. I'm curious like that. haha.
We get to Thetis and Renee says "Do you want to go now?"

Next thing we know, we're on a drive upto Nanaimo. We spent the hour and a half on the way up singing along to music.
We must have taken a wrong turn somewhere, because we got lost. We both had to pee REALLY REALLY BADLY by now and luckily saw a Starbucks up on the right, so we stopped there.
Instead of asking directions, we started using the GPS in Renee's phone to find the office... it took us to a dead end street and asked us to keep going forward, it tried to take us down another no exit road... but in the end, we found it!

Admittedly, it was less interesting than I had built it up in my mind.
Nowhere on the building does it say what it is. Its just... there. So then Renee and I drove around looking for the Woodgrove Centre. We got lost, again. Using the GPS since we knew that the Wal-Mart was in that shopping Centre, so we just inputed the Wal-Mart.
In the middle of a busy street, the phone told us that we had arrived.... we were no where NEAR the Wal-Mart. So we just drove. Its nice not having somewhere to be, getting lost and not caring.
We did end up finding the mall, we went in... and I found THE CUTEST Betty Boop carry-on luggage. Seriously... this thing is GORGEOUS!! We went and ate and we went to Wal-Mart so Renee could get a copy of Twilight. Both of us ended up finding two shirts and then we left to get home.

We got back to Victoria around 3:45, and I got home around 4pm. I had half an hour to get ready before Jacki was coming to pick me up and we ( her son, two of his friends, Jacki and I) were going to Red Robin for dinner and then to a movie.
She was a little late, which is completely uncharacteristic...haha. Which is why its worth mentioning. haha

We went to the movie theatre to see Watchmen. It was long, but good. The 3 boys didn't understand it and Jacki seemed to want it to end the whole time. heh. It was late when we got out and so she took me home. I stayed up until Brian got home a little after midnight and then promptly fell asleep.

All in all, it was a WONDERFUL day!!

Linkity linkity link!


I have 5 minutes left on my lunch and decided I wanted to write a blog post.
Then this screen came up and my mind went blank... I have no idea what to write about!

I have nothing to say really...
I'm at work, on lunch (duh) and I had Red Robin left overs for lunch. and a granola bar. Yummy!

Renee just called... we were going to try to have lunch today... but she wasn't sure that she could get here in time. So when one of my co-workers asked to switch lunchtimes...I had no reason to say no. But apparently Renee would have made it :(

Well... lunchtime is over, so is this blog. the end.

Click here Daddy!

Well hello hello there!

Fancy meeting you here. Its been a little while, hasn't it? Not to be confused with a long while... just a little one.

I'm in a bit of a weird mood, as you may have noticed. I am not 100% sure why. Nor do I have the slightest idea.

I've had a marvelous weekend thus far and tomorrow is looking to be pretty spectacular itself! Friday, i went to the bank, my sister and I went to the gym, I paid rent, went out to dinner with my family and then came home and watched a bunch of episodes of the fourth season of House with my brother then went to sleep.

Saturday, I woke up... lazed around until 10:45, rushed to get ready, Renee picked me up, we went to the gym, went to the mall to have lunch, met Jacki there, we went to a travel agency where we learned that is was just as inexpensive to book through this lady as it is to book online (and feels a lot more secure), jacki and I went grocery shopping (for her...although why I didn't pick up groceries at the same time is beyond me) and then she dropped me off at home. (It is so hard to do such long run on me)
We left with the idea that she would go home, shower, and eat then come back and we'd go out to play pool in the evening. Its a good thing I didn't scour the internet and post a blog on a forum to see if I could find another place to play pool other than the one downtown because she doesn't like to go downtown, only to have her cancel on me because she suddenly realized she had to get up early in the morning. Oh wait.... all that happened.

Do I sound bitter?? I hope so, because I was trying.

Anyway, so then Brian made a wonderful dinner and we watched movies all night.
One of them was TERRIBLE. Another one we were unable to finish due to technical difficulties (eventhough neither of us were TOO sad that we didn't get to finish it),and out of the other two we watched, the last one was the best... but both were good!

As far as the weekend goes... that just leaves "tomorrow" (since I haven't gone to sleep yet, its not Sunday for me). Tomorrow Renee, Malcolm, Brian and I are going BOWLING! Yes, bowling. In Duncan... I wish I could explain to you how excited I am... but that would be just silly, wouldn't it? Cause all you need to know is that I am. haha.

Ok... I think I need at least *some* sleep or else Renee will be driving "by herself" tomorrow morning since all of us will be sleeping. haha.
