Stretching yourself toooooooo.... thin

Do you ever feel like you have a million things to do, and you try to accomplish every -single- one of them?

Well, of course you do! I know I am not the only insane person out there who bites off more then they can chew.

Ever since Chris has been gone, I have been trying to keep myself occupied by going places and doing things, but these past few weeks it seems that I have been stretching myself waaaaayyyy... too thin.

Take for instance the last two weeks... my sister who mostly works at night, needed a babysitter from 4:30 until 10:30 since my Mom was on vacation in Colorado. So like any good sister... I had duties to fulfill. Which then brings us to the weekend... I had made plans earlier in the week to go to the beach with my girlfriend Vanessa, as well as doing an early morning workout on Saturday with my girlfriend Courtney. My sister informs me on Friday that she needs my help with my nephews birthday party.. with all his little friends.

So here was my weekend..

Friday: Babysit my niece and nephew

Go to Party City to pick up all the goodies for my Nephews Transformer party... with both niece and nephew in tow... deal with a few break downs.. because they see something they "HAVE" to have.

Pick up Chick fil a for dinner.. go back to their house.... Nephew says he doesn't feel well.. 5 minutes later he is in the bathroom yacking (bless his heart, he always makes it to the toilet... and he cleans his own mess up... there was some going down the side of the toilet.. and he was cleaning it all up.)

He goes back to lay down.... 5 minutes later he is yacking again...

Finally get both of them to bed.

Saturday morning:

Wake up at 7:30 (really who does this on a Saturday?) met my girlfriend at a local park in the 100 degree + 80% humidity... only walk 3 miles.. instead of 5.

Go pick up balloons that were ordered.... silly string... mosquito spray... fruits... veggies... and lunch.

Return to the house.. to get all the fruit and veggies cut up.. ice the cupcakes.. and hang streamers.

Wait for the party to start.. and only have 2 out of 7 kids show up!!!!!!

Help my sister clean up, put my nieces new day bed together... order pizza and go to my girlfriend Courtney's house for pizza, beer and movies.

Sunday: babysit... from 11:00 - 4:30 in the stifling heat for a handicap child... who I can't really do anything with when it's so hot out.. and lugging her in and out of the car along with her wheel chair def. wasn't happening that day.

So I never got around to going to the beach with my girlfriend Vanessa.

Which leads us to Tuesday night. My girlfriend Cat has been asking me to go to the gym with her.. so I told her I would go on Wednesday night.

Wednesday after work my girlfriend Vanessa text me and tells me she and one of her friends are going to 501 Grill @ 8:00 for some drinks and asked if I wanted to come... so trying to please everyone... I of course say yes, that I would meet them down there. I get there about 8:30.. let them know that I can only stay for about an hour.

I leave them at 9:30 rush home to go change into gym clothes and meet Cat at the gym at 10.

I just feel like I am constantly on the go go go.... I took this Sunday off from babysitting so I could just have a relaxing weekend to myself.... which doesn't look like that's going to happen now. I hate letting people down... but seriously it's starting to weigh me down!

I have been so busy that... I haven't even unpacked from my trip to Canada! Seriously... who leaves their crap in a suitcase for a month?

On another note... it's fricken Thursday.... let the weekend begin!

~ciao bitches
I have sooo... much crap to blog about, but this hell hole of a workplace makes me cranky... pissy... and not a nice person.

Which then makes me not want to do much of anything... because I am Ms. Crankypants.

THANK GAWD its Thursday!

As Chris says... there is nothing better to do on the ship.. so all he does is work out and gets "Jacked"
He told me not to put this one on facebook... he said nothing about the blog though! =)

Over hearing about it.....

So my "Office Managers" daughter (who is 27) and her boyfriend, adopted a dog the other day from the SPCA. She is a 1 year old Pitbull/Boxer mix who's name is Maci.

The O.M's family is suppose to go up North to help out with the grandparents cabin to do some fixing up... and her daughter who adopted the dog, well its her boyfriend and his friends that are doing most of the work. Her daughter is excited for everyone to meet the dog... and everyone in their family is snubbing her, because they think the dog is dangerous.

NONE of them have even met the dog yet! Yes, I know a pitbull (gasp... hold you breath) we all know they have bad rap sheet for being dangerous. I am one of those people who believe it's all about the owner.

For goodness sakes I have a Rotti, and people get nervous around her. But would she ever harm, bite, attack someone for no good reason? NO! She hasn't yet..... she isn't a racist dog.... she gets long well with other dogs, plays well with kids. She is the biggest sweetie you probably will ever meet.

Anyhoo.. back to the topic... So all this week.. all I have heard about is this DOG! The O.M's other kids a son who is 34 and another daughter who is 23... have been calling here all week... including her sons wife who is being a complete biznotch about the whole thing.

The daughter in law said that if her daughter brings her dog, that her, her husband and their son were not going to go.

And that her son and her little shit Chihuahua are never going to be around that dog. And get this.. she said that the daughter should have consulted with the family first before getting "that" kind of dog.

I mean seriously.... she is a grown adult... why in the hell would she need to consult with them? She has her own house.

If I was the daughter... I would tell them all to go to hell.

It just bugs me that NO ONE... has even gone over there to see the dog or get to know her. But they all want to pass judgement before even getting to know her.

I talked to the daughter yesterday, and told her that if she wanted me to bring Layla over to play with her I would be more then happy to do that.

So it to the O.M's family SUCK IT UP..... get over it! I'm tired of hearing your Mother argue with all of you on the phone about this puppy who know one is giving a chance.

Seriously Annoyed,

my weekend

This is what I did this weekend


Thursday, July 15, 2010


This past week has been HELL! Well okay that may be a little dramatic... but it suuuuriously has been crazy.

~ We are still without an assistant at work.. so the Office Manager is going NUTS... literally!

~ I have a change thief in the house of bachelors.....(probably over $10's in change taken from my change jar that I keep in the closet) I know who it is... I sent Chris a bitch mail about it.. and in return he sent the culprit a "You better show some respect to Carrie email."

~ I feel like the dudes think just because I have boobs and a vajayjay that it automatically makes me there house keeper.

~ I'm concerned with the way people "clean".... just because you vacuumed the den and did HALF of the dishes.. does not mean you cleaned!

~ I have two care packages that need to be sent out to Chris. I keep forgetting my over seas forms that go with them.

~Anyone tried the new fun flavors of Starburst? They're pretty good... Kiwi Banana.. Lemon Limeade... Cherry Splash... Strawberry Watermelon

~ What about Dum Dums.. anyone have any of those lately? They too have some new flavors... Mango... Banana Split... Coconut.. Tangerine... Cotton Candy

~ No, I am normally not a JuNk -A- hOliC... but lately with sending care packages out to Chris... it's weird... not everything fits into the boxes I have... so I have to take some stuff out. =) So instead of two bags of Starburst and Dum Dums... he gets one of each.

~ My girlfriend Christy who is a graphic designer... also does photography on the side.. well she is wanting to get into the whole Boudoir photos. So I am set up tomorrow for 2 photo shoots 1.) The Boudoir photos and 2.) later in the evening for photos of Layla and myself at the beach. =) Should be fun.

~ I've realized... yesterday that I am a very reserved person. Walking into Fredericks of Hollywood I became really embarrassed. I don't think I will ever see myself buy crotchless panties anytime in my near future. I did however purchase this polka dot corset to wear. Hopefully they come out great and she won't have to do a lot of photo shop on me. Keep your fingers crossed!

~ ANOTHER girlfriend of mine is preggo! I've come to the conclusion I will probably be the last of my friends to have a child.

~ Seriously... who walks around an office and asks where our "leader" is??? Ummm... The Doctor I can tell you is not my leader!

And even though I am having yet AGAIN... a crap week... I will leave you with another funny "JACKED" up email blurb I received from Chris today.

"Speaking of jacked , I ‘m close to weighing 190 lbs and I’m about to go squat a house for my leg workout, BEAST "

I got this in an email today.... thought I would pass it along.

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.

We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, 'Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!'

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck.' He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.

As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. Don't take it personally.Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.

Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.

Love the people who treat you right and Pray for the ones who don't.

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it!

Have a garbage-free day!

Happy Hump Day!

Canadian Trip

Ahh... I am sooooo horrible at posting pictures! So FINALLY here are some pictures of my trip to Canada. A BIG BIG Thank you goes to Caro for having a complete stranger from a different country come to stay with her! =)

I had a great time... which I still need to come back to see...

1. To see the fireworks from the bridge
2. To eat maple ice cream
3. Get a beaver tail
4. And of course to go shopping AGAIN! =)
Going up the big elevator to look at the view of Montreal
The old Olympic Stadium

An awesome looking building in Old Port

The tents of Circus De Soleil

The streets of Old Port

All the cute cafes on the street

Mmmm..... Poutine... talk about fattening... French Fries... with gravy and cheese on top!

Caro & I in Old Port

Another view of the tents and Old Port

Fireworks.... we were driving when I was taking them... that's why they are swirly.

And a raccoon... who really didn't care that there were tons of people around. I thought it was a cat at first.

We also went to a Nordic Spa which was AMAZING! I, like the dummy I am at times.. left my water camera in the lockers at the spa... and when I remembered it.. I was too LAZY to go grab it.
AGAIN thank you sooooo... much Caro for having me! =) Hope I wasn't too big of a pain the in butt for you.

I would prefer one or two.. Christopher on the hand wants four (not happening!).
