I have a new strength and purpose lately. I've got some balance in my life and I kinda like it.
Work is a bit stressful, but I have purpose. My boss gets me as do my staff. They know I care.
~~~~~
The strike never happened, but I had to get up at the crack of dawn anyways to check the news.
~~~~~
I am a Star Wars geek and if the chance arises, I will go see it this weekend.
~~~~~
I am in love with Smirnoff Twisted Black Cherry coolers.
~~~~~
Two more days to the long weekend!

The countdown is on. As I type this, Toronto is facing a strike that will criple the comuter train system that brings 180,000 people into the city every day. I don't take the train every day but I recognize that it keeps the road system sane. Without it, I will be working wierd hours so that I can avoid the gridlock that is sure to be a result of this.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
I got a great night's sleep but in the end it's the weather that is making my headache worse today. It's a bit unsettled.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Blackberry's are of the devil. I wish people would realize that it is tying them to thier jobs in a way I find disturbing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
We are going to make another atempt to got to the crowded restaurant on friday night. We are in no rush so we will put up with the wait. I will investigate this little thing called reservations, but I am not optimistic as no restaurant seems to like to take resrvations.

Welcome to Monday kids, If you happen to live in Canada, you are within spitting distance of a long weekend. The weather may not be the greatest though. Oh well.

I'm typing this up on the train, cause I just didn't feel like driving. As I have said before the train is a great place to people watch. It's a great place to see fashion don'ts. Here are a few....

1) Pleated pants. In case anyone was wondering, they are a no. Luckily I see less and less of them all the time.
2) Running shoes. They are not business casual wear.
3) Comb-overs. They fool no one.
4) Wearing shorts will not magically make it warmer.

Here's a lesson I learned this weekend. If you have to choose between a restaurant with a 45 minute wait, or a place with no wait, chances are the place with no wait will disapoint. Make sure you have great company with you like I did.

Sunday for me was pretty uneventful. There was a long list of things that needed to be done. #1 on the list was to catch up on some sleep, reflect and relax. There was also the usual stuff, groceries, ironing and a visit to the gas station.

It's hard to explain what is happening at work, but suffice it to say, there are things going on that I don't understand as of yet and it drives me crazy.

Summer is coming, just not quick enough for my liking.

The diet is going ok, but I just must eat more. Period.
