I’m still alive!

Hello dear bloggies. I’m so sorry I’ve been absent all week.  I have thought about blogging each day!

Proof I’m still alive… this is me from the other day.. with a green drink! (I have bangs, but some days at work I end up pinning them back because they fall in my eyes when I’m trying to work… and no, I don’t wear make up to work.  Eye make up irritates my eyes, and I stare at a computer all day).

In case you didn’t know… we are under a HUGE heat wave in Toronto.  In case you also didn’t know… not only do I live in Toronto, I also live on the 15th floor of a high rise without A/C.  My little window unit broke a couple of years ago and I just don’t have the funds to replace it.  Also, it barely cooled off one room. I unfortunately am not allowed to have an a/c in my bedroom window.  I wasn’t sleeping for several night and have now resorted to taking gravol to knock me out and be forced to sleep.

That says it’s 28C at 9pm, but feels like 39C.  My bedroom is 45C.

This too shall pass.

On a more positive note… I am still going to the gym and still counting points!

Today was weigh in day (wow, has it been a week since I posted??).  I STAYED THE SAME!  What’s up with that?  Maybe heat wave bloat?  I don’t know, but I will keep plugging away!

No pictures tonight. I apologize. 

Good luck to all in keeping cool during the heat wave.  My understanding is the entire country is feeling it.  I also heard on the radio though, that Toronto is the hottest spot in the country this week.  With the humidity each day has felt over 40C.  Yikes.

I miss this…

Okay… maybe I’m not THAT hot.  Maybe I just miss this…

Christmas morning… and my (then) 2 1/2 year old nephew at my parents’ house.

The countdown is on…  2 weeks tomorrow Alex and I pack our bags and make the 9 hour drive to Chicago to see my sister, brother in law… and this CUTIE (aka the love of my life)

I don’t have my own kids… but I really can’t imagine loving one more than I do my nephew.  I love him more than life and would die for him.

Okay, enough mush.  I’ll be back to posting food porn this weekend!!

Happy July!

It's been TOO hot and humid here too. :( We complain about the snow and then complain about the heat.... I personally wish every month was like September, it always seems to be awesome.

This heat is aweful and I have A/C!

I totally understand you about loving your nephew so much. I don't have kids either and my little guy is my life.

Hero Tales has a lot going for it with the people behind the original manga but it comes across as such a mediocre at best effort with the story and rather bland animation to back it up.
