Man, I suck!!!

A whole week with no posts???  What the heck is going on?? I feel like I am turning into one of those bloggers who neglect their public with claims of being too busy. People like um, oh I don’t know…Taras perhaps?  Mathew maybe?

Well I am not quite as bad as those two but a week is quite a long time to go without giving my peeps something new to read so I will try and rectify that today.

Let’s see…what have I been up to lately?  Well two weekends ago, Jason and I went to see a play called Apple at the Factory Theatre.  It was pretty intense and not exactly what we were expecting but it was quite good and we really enjoyed it.  It was fun to see a play in such a small theatre – it is a very different experience to the large productions I normally go to.

Last week a bunch of us from work went out on Wednesday to raise a glass (or two) to wish Wayne well in his next work adventure.  Wayne has moved on to another job and it was good to get out and celebrate with him.  

On Friday, Sean and I went to play poker with our regular poker crowd.  Unfortunately I didn’t win this time.  In fact I came last in 2 of the 3 games – that is my worst showing ever.  I guess my brain just wasn’t into it.  It could also have been related to the 6 Heineken I drank…um yeah – that might have affected my playing.

On Saturday I went to see my driving guy to get in a last lesson before my G1 exit test that is scheduled for this coming Friday.  After the session I got some good news and some not so good news.  He says that I have mastered the whole driving a standard thing and that my parking skills are good enough but that he thinks I am not alert enough.  Now most of this probably stems from the fact that he is always honking the horn and I choose not to, but the comment depressed me all the same. I was aware of all the things going on around me but I guess because I didn’t honk or point them out he thought I didn’t notice them.  I guess I will find out soon enough if the examiner has the same opinion.  My test is on Friday at 11:35 and I promise to give an update either way once I get home.

The rest of my weekend was spent knitting and lazing about.  I finished the back of my Mom’s sweater and now I am working on the front.  It is coming along at a pretty good pace so I am confident it will be completed in time for Santa to collect it and deliver it with the rest of his deliveries on his big night.

And that is my round-up of the past week or so.  It feels good to finally have a post actually.  I didn’t really realize I missed it until I started writing.  I really need to make this a part of my day again.


  1. I agree! Welcome back Gwen!
