365 Days of Self Portraits: Days 79 – 85

week12feat

In an effort to gain self confidence and deal with body image issues still remaining after my weight loss, I decided to take part in a 365 project focusing on self portraits.  My hopes are that after a year of taking a photo of myself ever day, that I will stop hating photos of myself, stop picking apart the things I hate about my body and learn to accept myself in a way that I haven’t been able to before.  It is uncomfortable, challenging and at times scary as I am also putting myself out there in a way I ...

A Dog’s Life

napfeat

Today I went into the bedroom to make the bed and as usual Bailey jumped up on it and made himself comfortable, and it wasn’t long before Pixel was hopping to get up there too.  They both seemed to think it was a great time for a nap. I agreed! Unfortunately, my husband didn’t and came in to tell me to get my arse in the shower so we could go out shopping. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!  I love me a good cat dog nap!

Do You Know Who Owns This Car?

copsfeat

The red one, I mean.  If you do, could you kindly punch him or her in the throat the next time you meet? Whatever they did to cause all these cop cars to come tearing into our lot with sirens blazing is the reason I’m sitting here writing this at 6:40am on a Sunday morning. I didn’t see them getting out of the car, I can only assume that in the time it took me to get out of bed, swear, pee, swear and get to the window they either ran or were put in one of the police cars.  ...

The Single Bed Solution

singlebeds.jpg

Random photo from some smarter people than us. This is what I see for my future.  A world where I am not even 40 yet and am already sleeping in twin beds.  It’s 4:51am as I write this and I’ve already been awake for an hour.  I am at the end of my rope.  I don’t even remember the last time I had a full night’s sleep and I am really starting to feel it. I hate mosquitoes.  I hate them to the ends of the earth and back, but they love me. This year we’ve tried to combat the ... Read More »

Converted

As some might remember, one of the things Xander and I disagreed on was the topic of sleeping with earplugs. He thought it was great, I thought it was not-so great because someone could come in and kill me and he’d never hear it…. although, that could be the reason he wears them, who knows! Anyhow, it’s true… I’ve been converted! Along with mosquitos and sunburns, the summer also means hearing every sneeze, sigh and screw that takes place in our neighbours apartments… or in our parking lot. The sounds go out their windows and into ours, making it very ... Read More »

Frazzled

I’m sitting here on my sofa, wrapped in a blanket with a birds nest for hair and droopy eyes. I’m tired. For the last number of days I haven’t managed to get a full nights sleep even once. Yesterday morning I was woken up at 3:30am by the sounds of my dog puking in his bed, which I got up and cleaned up. Then was awoken again by his whining just after falling asleep. I knew something had to be wrong so I got up and let him out of the bedroom, after which he ran into the livingroom and ... Read More »

Phantom Stress

I’m stressing!! I don’t know what I’m stressing about but man am I stressing! For the past few nights I’ve slept like crap, having weird dreams and unable to sleep for more than an hour or so at a time. Twice I’ve woken up with a weird burny chest pain but I haven’t been eating anything that would cause it, not that I know of anyway. For some reason my teeth are always clenched… so much so that I sometimes notice it and when I try to open my mouth to yawn or something my jaw hurts! I wish I ... Read More »

Who’s Calling?

This morning at 6:30am (approx 40 minutes ago) I was laying in bed and heard the phone ringing in the livingroom. The phone in the bedroom is broken and by the time I was awake enough to realize the one in the livingroom was ringing I knew I wouldn’t make it in time. I was just starting to go to sleep when it started rining again… I leaped out of bed, ran the gauntlet of getting around the bed without banging into the dogs bed or the TV and made it just into the livingroom in time for the phone ...

Males and Sleeping

What is it with men and their ability to sleep through anything? Last night we had the worst thunder and lightning storm I can remember in a long time.. I leaped up out of my sleep, ran around the house closing windows and came back into the bedroom. I stood there for a minute observing the scene in there.. the dog in his bed, balls up and sound asleep. Xander laying flat out on his belly on the bed not making a peep.. and the cat on the pillow on top of Bailey’s bed curled up sleeping as if the ... Read More »

*Yawn*

Tired today even though I slept in until 9am, which is about 3.5 hours later than usual. Of course, we went to bed quite a bit later last night than we usually do as well. We were joking last night about how we are the ‘old folks’ and wondering when it came to be that we found 1:30am to be late to bed. Hard to believe there was a time in my life when I thought 4am was early to bed. Last night we were invited to dinner by a classmate of mine. He’s the Kiwi I spoke about previously ... Read More »
