Thanks Babe!!

For the last few days I have been working at the Arborg Clinic, not my favorite place to be. I don't know why I am so unhappy working here. I love it in Gimli so much. It is not the people that work in Arborg, it is not the hours, it isn't really the work. I think it is more that Gimli feels like home to me. I feel like I belong there and I know how things word. In Arborg I don't feel that as much.

Last night I was pretty upset when Meghan called me and told me she was still sick. I really didn't want to go back to Arborg. It really put me in a crappy mood, and I probably whined about it alot (ask Eric, I don't keep track). Plus I am sick and would love to stay at home, but if I do there would be no one to help out Venessa, so that made me even more upset. But today when I got to work it felt so much better. I was way happier today and things were going smooth and I was actually having fun. It made me feel so dumb for whining so much about it the night before. Then Eric called and asked me how my day was going. I said it was going good and he sounded suprised. I told him it was way better than the other days. Then he said" Good cuz I was praying for you." !!!!!! I love God, and my husband, so much. I love that God provides little miracles like making my day a whole lot better. I don't know how He does it, but I am so thankful. It just reminds me that I need to turn to God when I am hurting and upset, and He will take care of me, always.

My New Pillows

I hate shopping for pillows. I never find anything I like. So I decided to make my own!!
I used my old animal print pillows and two different fabics I bought to make pillow covers. The end result even suprised me!!

My old leopard print pillow turns into....

...a beautiful flower print that will match my living room.

You can't really see the back, but it is a brown suede and it is so soft and so pretty! I will try and take some more pics once I sew the second pillow!

Valentine's Day Stuff

Valentine's day itself we didn't do much. Eric sent me flowers at work, my favorite, Gerbera Daisies! And he bought me a bunch of candy. I got him a sweater and a book and a tub of cinnimon hearts. This weekend we sent our dogs with my parents and went to the city. Friday night we went for supper ar Applebee's with Travis, Ryan, Sheri, Sarah, Sam and two other people, I can't remember their names. Me and Eric shared a plate of chicken, quesedilla's and mexican rice. It was sooooooo good! We stayed at travis & ryans for the right, seeing as how we hadn't been there yet! Then saturday we went shopping and I got sweet new shoes and jeans. We also bought a ton of new cd's. Then we went to the Fort Garry Hotel and checked in. We went swimming in the pool and relaxed in the hot tub. We also brough a bunch of games like Boggle, and I beat Eric by a landslide so he didn;t want to play again. LOL. We went to the keg for supper. We both had steak, I hade the chipolte and eric had a pepper one. They were both very very good. We slept in this morning and went for the Sunday morning bruch at the Fort Garry. It was so good. They have an unreal amount of food there! We definatly left with full bellies. We watched tv in our hotel room for a bit, had a little bit of a nap, then headed home. We went to visit Grandma Dueck at Betel, stopped by at the BCBC camper reunion and went to my cousin Troy's birthday party. It was a full weekend but it was fun. I just wish we could have hung out in the hotel for a week. I loved the plush king sized bed with the down blanket (and a feather mattress cover) and feather pillows. It was sooooooo comfy!! Oh well, maybe sometime...

More 24

I just hate days like today. I just get so frustrated. I feel like I am always doing something and always have even more stuff to do, but the people I work with think I am doing nothing. I feel like nothing is ever good enough for them. I feel so useless and dumb. This always happens when I have to work as a receptionist and a tech. I just can't do both at the same time. I can't answer phones and greet customers and sell food and stuff while I am holding an animal or working with an animal or doing tests that require my full attention. I just can't. Some days my job is really great and I have fun and I love it. But it seems lately I have been having alot of bad days that really discourage me. We are going to Terry and Eloa's for supper, and I am starving. I hope it is ready when I get there. I am kinda tired though, and I don't feel like eating... Tonight I just want to sit at home and watch 24 all night long. That would make me a little bit happy.

Today I got to go home at 4:15. It was awesome!! I actually got home with the 4 o'clock hour. Well, it was 4:58 but it was still exciting! So me an my dogs went for a walk. They were soooo cold so we didn't go for long. But it was nice to go for a walk.

Our water is working again, finally. Now I have so many dishes to do. It is crazy. I am not looking forward to doing it but we are running out of lots of stuff. I need to at least do some of them. I think I am going to paint the kitchen too. We did the trim earlier. I might texture some more of the walls too, depending on how much time I have left tonight. I have to finish watching the oc first cuz it is the best show ever. I know... my life is soooooooo exciting!

Yesterday was crazy! All day at work I was running around and I had a tonne of things to do. I didn't get out of there until after 5. I am supposed to be gone at 4 or 4:30. It is frustrating. I don't understand why I have to stay and make sure the cleaning is done. Any normal person can mop and vaccum. Why does it always have to be me. In fact the girl that was supposed to stay there until the end, left before me. And she got there after me??? I don't get it. She saw there was stuff to do she should have done it! Anyways, other than that I love my job.

I went to a Stampin' Up party at Arlene's last night. It was pretty good. I bought a new stamp set and a bunch of stamps pads and matching paper. I also spent over 75 dollars so I got a free stamp set!! I can't wait to get my stuff and start using it! I didn't have time to eat supper before that, but it turns out I didn't have to. Arlene made lots of food, and it was sooooo good! My favorites were the mini-muffin quiches and the hot taco dip. MMMMMMMM!! I want more. Yes.. I went off the sparkpeople diet a bit but thats ok. Today I am back on track! Did you know that coffee has pretty much no calories. And even when I add some cream and sugar it is not that bad!! I am so excited about that cuz we have really good coffee and an awesome coffee maker at work. It makes one cup at a time, in like 20 seconds. It is pretty cool. I want one! LOL.

Today I left work at 4:15. I am so excited about that. Finally! I get home when there is still light out. There is even some light out now! I love it. We are still working on our kitchen walls. Eric is going to prime the rest of the wall when he gets home so hopefully I can paint it tonight. Then we will do the final coat tommorow and that side will be done. Only one more half to go! I can't wait to see what the final product will look like! I should go start supper. I am making oriental rice and some pork chops... if we have any dishes left...Our pipes have frozen in the kitchen so the water doesn't work and we haven't washed dishes for a while. Our kitchen is so messy!! It is stressfull. I just want it clean right now! Oh and today at work I was lifting a dead dog into the back of Lisa's truck (she was taking it for creamation) and I think I pulled my quadricep muscle. It feels ok now but if I walk lots on it , it is really painful. I hope it won't be crazy sore tommorow. Well, I have to hobble off now!

More songs.... about L-O-V-E!!

Lately I have been listening to alot on New Found Glory. I have liked them forever, since i was like 15. I kinda feel like a grew up with them. Their songs are always about how I feel at that stage in my life. When I was 15 they sang about teenage angst and stuff like that, and now their new album is all about love and marriage, cuz a bunch of them are married. I love it. Here are some of their new songs that explain exactly how I feel about Eric!

Too Good To Be

I wonder, what life would be like
If my shoulder
Could bare the weight of all this adding up
I feel, the breaking point
It's close enough, it's feeling real again
You have my heart in your hands
You have my heart so don't, don't let it go
Check my pressure
Patch me up right, you're too good to be
It's true, we both make sacrifices
There's proof, it came as no surpriseIt boiled up, as we always let it do
We made it through again

On My Mind

Let's make a date out of the cinema
Then stay out till early in the morning
I always like it cause we take it slow
While everyone around us seems so hurried
It feels familiar, cause I've been here before
When your words
Swept the ground right from under me
Remember when you were so insecure
Now you can't get your hands up off of me
But the time we spent was so short
Can't believe it's time to go again
You're always on my mind, all the time
On my mind, believe it
Can we pick it up where you left off
When you said you'll never get over me
I'll take for granted every roll off your tongue
Cause you're screaming out all your honesty
You know it's time,You see the bags at the door
I'm minutes away from departing
In exchange for a few last words
Will never be enough for me

The whole album applies to lots of situations in my life, i just don't want to post it. But you should download those two songs. They are awesome!

I am an artist not a painter!

So the sparkpeople diet thing is going pretty good. I am starving though. LOL. But I think tommorow I am going to make enchiladas... maybe. Last night we started the kitchen remodel. We are texturing the walls and painting them a darker yellow, called Solaris. I forgot to take before pics though. But I will take some now and some of the finished product. It should look pretty awesome! I am excited. Eric tried to do the texturing part, but then we both decided that I was way better so I had to do the wall by myself. But thats ok cuz he is the better painted. We are teamdueck, and we make up for eachothers weaknesses. He sucks at texturing , but I am good, I suck at painting, but he is good, so we will pool are skills and create some awesome looking walls. hahahahahahaha.

Time To Get Healthy!

So I was reading Jobina's blog and she mentioned the SparkPeople site. So I checked it out and decided to try it out. It has motivated me a lot. Me and Eric are trying the meal plan ( that I adapted quite a bit) for a week. I don't need a diet because they don't work for me. I definatly need to change my lifestyle. I am sick of being a fatty. I want to be healty and fit and look good for my husband. I know he doesn't care as much as I do, but I am pretty sure I wouldn't want him to be morbidly obese. LOL. Tommorow we start the new meal plans. I hope it goes well!! I can't wait till it gets warmer outside and I can walk. Also Cheryl is going to give me a free two week trial at Curves. And I need to start Pilates again. It is so good, I love it!! I have been so lazy lately. It is depressing. Anyways, I am getting a headache from the compy so I have to make this short.
