Cuddly Furball

May 31st, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in connections, gratitude

We have a lovely, lovely cat. Her name is Tink. She is our pride and joy, and the apple of our eye. We’re trying to get her to understand that she’s no longer going to be the only pride and joy in our home. Come July-ish, we’re going to be blessed with a furless pride and joy, named Baby Bean. Heh. It will be interesting to see how Tink reacts to a screaming, screeching, little baby bundle.

Today, we took Tink to the vet (thought we were going to be late, since I wasn’t wearing my Vacheron watch), for her regular annual appointment and booster shot. She was NOT at all happy. We had to put her in her little carrier, since she was not having it on her leash and collar. She cried the whole way, and whined and whined, but in the end, she did very well. I cupped her little head in my hands while she was being poked and prodded, and she did fine. She winced a little when the shot was given, but still she was fine. No growls, no hisses! She’s quite famous at the vet’s, too, since she is known for her growls, hisses, and scratches. They had to wear gloves the last time she was here, and one time, they even had to put a towel over her head during the shots. The vet was very impressed today… said she must be mellowing out in her older age. Hah.

I’m grateful for this cuddly yet feisty little furball of ours.

Some Needed Visualizations

Time to visualize some more awesome things in my life. I’m purposefully asking for these things, universe, so please help us make space in our lives for them. Thanks.

- continuing our good health
- Dave’s “situation” working out the way we want it to
- getting my resident status cleared after Bean is born
- going back to my regularly scheduled yoga routine after Bean is born
- lots and lots of mangos, mm mm
- the baby’s room complete and organized by the end of June

- no work crisis, please, thanks!

Car Loan

May 30th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in headlines

I have to get another car in the next few months, and I’m thinking about getting one of those Online Car Loans, since I hear they can be very quick, efficient, and dependable. I’m not very well versed with Car Loans in general, so this will be helpful, most likely. I asked my dad to help me get a car, too, and he’ll know what to do when the time comes. Getting a Car Loan — heck, getting a new car, period!! — is a bit nerve-wracking. There are so many things to consider and so many things to do. I’m hoping that at least the loan part will be easy and not so time consuming or nerve-wracking. I hear Basic Car Loans may be the best option since they provide loans to people of all types of credit. I have really good credit, so I know for sure I’ll be able to get a loan from them.

Weekend Bliss

Oh thank goodness for wonderful Friday! It feels like I’ve been waiting for Friday for a while. Weird, though, since my days are a lot more lax than usual, since I’m going down to part-time work now. However, weekends seem to hold so much opportunity, for some reason. Even as a kid, we look forward to weekends — no school and most of the time, no homework. As adults, we hold onto that same weekend fantasy, even if we don’t have anything planned. This weekend, we’re having our nephew, Nick, over. He’s staying over on Saturday night. I predict lots and lots of fun with the Wii. Heh. We’re also going out to dinner with Dave’s dad and his fiance, at one of our favorite places - the Mongolie Grill. It will be a fun-filled weekend packed with family and love and some video game kick assing. Who can ask for more from a weekend?!

The Sailor’s Life

May 29th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in headlines

One of my colleagues in town owns a spiffy boat. Her fiance works on boat parts and he is as close as they come to being an expert when it comes to dealing and working with Marine Hardware. Currently, he’s working in town as a construction engineer for boating parts, and I hear that the best place that his company gets their equipments from is Marine Travelift. They use that service in their marina very often - I’ve visited their site and it looks quite impressive, to say the least. I wish I knew more about this type of work, as it seems very rewarding and enjoyable.

Amazing Talents

May 29th, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in gratitude

I’ve got a secret television addiction. Whereas most people tune into American Idol, I really, really like tuning in on So You Think You Can Dance. The new season just started last week, and I love it! I can’t believe the moves some of these talented people can make. Whereas I know I can’t carry a tune if my life depended on it, or complete a choreographed dance routine that would win me any award, I definitely appreciate the talented people out there who can do either, particularly dance. Some of these moves are crazy! It’s the arts that I definitely appreciate — the lines of the body being able to work themselves like that. The way the human body can stretch and perform and dance and twist and turn — it’s all so amazing. We are capable of so much as a human race, it’s almost unbelievable what many of us can do when we put our minds to it. The unbelievable talent this race has. It’s incredible. I appreciate the many talents of this world — the dancers, the singers, the artists, the organists, the psychologists, the peacemakers, the humane politicians. So many different types of talents in this world. How amazing.

Event Tickets

Dave and I sometimes treat ourselves to concert tickets of our favorite bands, especially when they’re in town. It’s hard to resist Sarah McLachlan or The Dalai Lama when they’re both “performing” in our area. However, the difficulty is, of course, finding the perfect seats for the perfect price. Often, because the performers are so popular and the venues are so small, finding the perfect seat tickets , period, is a difficulty! I can imagine how hard it is to get really good sports tickets for your favorite game or your favorite team. At Seat Exchange, all this is made perfectly simple, finally! Now we can get our tickets without the hassle and hustle and bustle of waiting in line, or waiting for the perfect seats, or missing the perfect seats entirely. I can’t wait till Raconteurs come back into town, or Sarah McLachlan’s next tour! It’ll be awesome! There’s nothing like being up close and personal with your favorite bands and your favorite sports team to make a night really, ultra fun. I love that experience. We had it when we went to see Bif Naked in Vancouver a couple of years back. I can’t wait to have that experience again!
