I worked all day at mt FT job and now I am at my PT job. It is so beautiful outside I wish I wasn't working and could go have a cold beer and play ball with my dogs. Right now my BF and his mom are trying to plant trees in our yard. I will get outta here @ 8 so only a few hours left!

Well, we here in Calgary are in the middle of heavy snowfall (-6), and it's supposed to last for days!  Last weekend it was +20 and beautiful...of course this is my weekend off eyes   I've lived here my whole life, you'd think I'd be used to it by now!  So everyone enjoy your yards, pools, BBQ's for me please.  It's making me cold just looking out the window...beautiful as it can be :-)

Tonight I played kickball with my 6 year old daughter and the neighborhood kids.

Tomorrow It will be baseball game at 11 (neighbors son with non existent dad).

Followed by as much yardwork as I can squeese in by 3, which is when my wife goes to work until 11. And then it will be me and my little ladies from 3-11. They are 3 and 6 and we will do all kinds of fun things. Wrap it up with movie night at 7.(ice cream, no popcorn).

pmac, I'm a born and raised calgarian too (actually, I think we've discussed this in the past...good memory, not!)

I'm 30 minutes from Calgary now, and might be shoveling snow too, nice spring weather....typical here in Alberta.

NBT, you find painting your kitchen relaxing???? I'm the painter in our house and the worst is the pain I get in my neck from cutting in around the ceiling and rolling...not exactly my idea of relaxing, but to each their own LOL...enjoy!!

I was gonna go into Calgary and pick up my Lancome gift with purchase but I don't think I'll bother with the conditions the roads will likely be in....so I'll do an extra day of cardio, not relaxing, but definitely a stress reliever.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I like painting walls, too. I find that taping and painting are soothing. And I like peeling off those long streamers of tape after the paint dries! My preferred painting time is from 11pm-2am. Hubby and kitties are all asleep. I even painted our neighbor's bathroom when they were away one weekend so I could paint it late at night. I also did their LR and hallway for them. (I like these neighbors)

Tomorrow I have a friend coming over to help me get my Master closet and MBedroom organized before my Mother flies out for my surgery date. If I don't clean it up and put it away, she'll do it and I won't know where anything is. My sewing/quilting area is set up in the MBR and I need to know where all my supplies are for my various projects.

May try to help Hubby organize the garage on Sunday afternoon. Or we'll lounge around and watch movies.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
 
UC is pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry. 
I'd much rather laugh.

I always tear away the tape when the paint is still wet, then I don't get little screw-ups on the edges from it like when it's dry.

Ah but there is a trick to peeling that tape. The paint has to be semi dry, not wet and not quite dry. My hubbys a professional painter and he told me that tip. You don't want the paint to be too dry that when you peel it, it takes the paint off with it and if it's too wet, the paint will seep over where the lines of the peeled tape was. So it has to be tacky.

I'm shivering this weekend. Last Saturday it was 80 degrees and sunny, and today we have over 2" of snow on the ground!!!!!!!!!!
So...I won't be mowing the lawn like I was planning, or doing any gardening for that matter. I do, however, get to start my 12 prescribed weeks of massage for my back today :)

James, if you want to do yard work you are more then welcome to come do mine! Here in MI we have been actually 20 degrees above normal and I don't mind in the least! Yesterday it was almost 80 and it was awesome! However because my back is a mess, I can't get out there and rake, clean etc. I have to enlist the help of my kids and even then, I need to fit it into their busy schedules! So I say, jump on a plane and visit an ole friend - eh what do you say?? lol Oh forgot to mention, bring the girl friend because I'm sure I can find things for her to do too!

Correct, and I knew that it just didn't come out that way when I wrote it...my dear dad was also a painter besides many other jobs he'd work at one time, so I learned many tips and tricks from him.

Hey pb4, how much snow have you accumulated at your place?  I cannot believe this weather!  I had finally put the lounge chairs and such out on the deck last weekend thinking we were in the clear, and now the snow is almost up to the bottoms of them...CRAZY!  We did venture out for a bit yesterday...finally went out and got myself some more probiotics (had been out for quite a while) got myself back on the Primadopholus Ruteri that you had reccomended.  The guy that owns the health food store I go to had me try a couple others just to see.  Nice of him since they were a lot cheaper, but just didn't cut it.  Thanks again for the reccomendation, I always think of you when I'm picking them up, and what a difference they have made.  For the last long while I've been taking retention enemas along with my Salofalk pills...I had cleared up right away the first time, tried weaning...no luck, tried a second time no luck.  So now my GI has me alternating one night Salofalk Enema...the next a cortosone...and sadly it's just not getting rid of the bleeding, I am however noticing a diff. in the urgency, mucous, and # of times I go now...so that's good!  Do you think that the probiotics will help with the rest?  I'm really hoping so, cause we are going away for a month soon to Europe, and I really don't want to pack a suitcase full of enemas!!! tongue   Also, could you possibly recommend a good travelling probiotic?  We are going to be all over, and keeping them cold could be an issue.

Hope that you're having a good weekend!  Take care.

Paula :-)

hi pb4,

I can't explain it, there's something about painting that hits the spot...I don't know what it is, but I like it. Still, I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I haven't even picked up a roller yet...sigh...but I will definately paint today and maybe use some of the tips the others mentioned. lol
