Screw you screw!

I’ve been speed walking on the treadmill for two weeks now and two days ago I decided that I had been working out for long enough to make me a great athlete and capable of amazing feats. I decided that speed walking was close enough to jogging that I might as well do that because I […]

The Pantin Menagerie of Pets

Ahhhh pets! Is it just me, or should pets actually be…pet-able??? What I would give for a sweet, cuddly dog. Once in a while I attempt to be a good pet owner’s mother and actually clean the fish tank of the fishies that belong to my two youngest kids. We have 10 now, and why […]

Tea story

Conversation with my 18 year old daughter last night:   ME: Hey Jenna, can you please make me some of your chai tea? JENNA: But I only have 30 left! ME: Actually you have 20. JENNA: But I only have 20 left! ME: No wait, you had one today…19. JENNA: *sigh* But I only have […]

Golf cart craziness

Yesterday I went out to Beausejour with my boyfriend and his kids to visit a friend of his for her birthday. I think Sonny learned a whole lot about me that day, for instance: Silly string wars will always be won by me… …and when going on golf cart adventures, it’s best to make sure I’m […]

Spider gymnastics

The other day I went through my usual routine of waking up and going to pee before getting my coffee ready. As soon as I sat down bleary-eyed, I noticed an itsy bitsy teeny weenie spider on the bathroom counter. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen one as tiny as this little guy in my life. […]

The WTF handshake game

I have recently concluded that there are people out there who have no clue about proper handshake etiquette. Every once in a while I leave the house in order to appear a somewhat functional member of society, and without fail find myself in a situation where I must shake hands or talk to someone. I’m […]

Holy crap child!

Children are fun aren’t they? In fact I find them absolutely hilarious when I’m trying to work and they realize that I absolutely DO want them to stick their precious little faces in front my laptop and disturb the crap out of me. Not only that, I’ve found that they are always hungry for some odd […]

Laundry laughs

Alright so I bought one of those shopping carts from Safeway that’s meant to get stuff from your car to your apartment. Here’s the thing about this particular cart. The font wheels are smaller than the back ones so the cart actually angles forward slightly. This means that if you bump something like a carpet […]

Fitness Fears

Ok so two days ago I decided to join the gym to get rid of this last bit of weight that has been plaguing me for far too long. I also miss working out because it makes me feel happy after. Now here’s the thing…remember that whole shy/introversion crap? Well it is currently annoying my […]

Work stories: Part 4

Ok so an hour ago, at work, I had to pee. This isn’t unusual as I seem to have the stupidest bladder in the history of mankind. The problem was that someone was in the staff washroom at the time, so I had to use the one outside the office in the hallway. The public […]

The Bus Chronicles (Part 6)

So I’m pretty sure I was involved in a threesome on my bus ride home today. What on earth is it with people thinking the bus is their own personal space? The pick their noses, scratch their privates, smell, fart, and basically try their best to make me vomit on a daily basis. I’m not […]

The Bus Chronicles (Part 5)

This morning on the bus, there was a girl putting mascara on while holding a Robin’s Donuts cup of coffee between her knees and looking into the side of her mascara container…which I could only assume held a sliver of mirror. Two things immediately stuck out here; firstly…she hadn’t drunk her coffee yet so she […]

Dental Disasters (Part 3)

On Saturday I went to the dentist to have my tooth prepped for a crown. I went in feeling fairly calm because I knew I’d be sedated since both my dentist and I refused to entertain the idea of another round of un-sedated dental work since freezing just doesn’t seem to work on me. She […]

The Bus Chronicles (Part 4)

Bus zombies are incredibly disgusting. I was taking the bus home yesterday and was sitting forward, facing the sideways bench at the front of the bus. This means the woman in front of me was like…in my face!!! She had a cold and pulled out Kleenex to blow her nose. Here’s the thing… I HATE […]

Work Stories (Part 3)

Today at work, there was just the office manager and I up front because our co-worker decided to take a long weekend. Remember Gimpy? Yeah that one. Don’t worry she didn’t break anything else…yet. Now let me explain…the three of us have a seriously fun time at work. I’m talking stomach cramping laughter, piss your […]

The Bus Chronicles (Part 3)

My bus rides are never boring, and Friday’s was no exception. I had woken up at 4:30 that morning with a bad migraine, so by the time 6am rolled around, it took longer than normal to get ready for work. My migraine was down to a dull roar at that point, thanks to my life-saving […]

Work stories (Part 2)

Ok so most of you know how much morning hates me right? Despite the fact that I’m a very happy and positive person…if I don’t get my required cup of coffee and some quiet time alone when I first wake up, I’m liable to go medieval on any poor soul who even thinks of speaking […]

Dental Disasters (Part 2)

HOLY CRAP! What the hell is with my mouth?!?! If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you will already know that I have some serious issues with having dental work done. It’s not even that I’m scared of the sharp pointy, drilly, shock me to death tools…which by the way I totally am, just in […]

Work stories (Part 1)

A few months ago I decided that I was in desperate need of human interaction, so I decided to get a job outside the home. I’ve always been home with my girls, but since my youngest had just started kindergarten and I had completely forgotten how to converse with actual adult-like people, I thought it […]
