Meet Duke

As you may have read in a previous post I have a new puppy named Duke, he’s a Sibarian Husky.

Heres a picture for added cuteness 🙂

GetAttachment

He is seriously the love of my life, who needs a man ? Get a dog 🙂

Maybe these are signs of forever alone ? haha jokes. But seriously with a puppy it’s like your free time is consumed with joy, happiness, playfulness, excitement, all those positive emotions that we need to and should surround ourselves with. Remember people the most important thing in life is to be happy, and that’s through doing what you love and positive happy thoughts. 🙂 and for me that’s a cute  puppy and blogging and driving and riding and jogging and … you get my point 😉

‘MERICA

Take no offence but I’m referring to the USA.

Bien here is the facts:

1) I am Canadian, Quebecer to be exact.

2) I get my groceries and gas from ‘Merica

3) The border people be like … interrogating.

4) Walmart.

So today I went to the USA and got groceries and gas like I usually do.

When doing so I crossed the boarder twice.

AND EVERY TIME; miss “… where do you live” “Do you know anyone there” “Are you sure thats all you bought ?” “where do you work”

I understand the main questions of who are you and what do you do and where did you go. Kay. good.

But then they have to double check or triple check.

“Do you know anybody in the states?” nope “are you sure?” yes I sure ” So you don’t know anyone” I just said no.

*well I mean i know Obama, Britney spears….

But I guess as a privilege of going to the states you have to endure all the questionings.

Have you ever had problems crossing the boarder ?

Peace.

Mother Nature are you okay?

 

So I live in Quebec, Canada. And for the last few days it has been amazing. Tan worthy. Walking around in flip-flops worthy.  Wearing short-shorts worthy. AND even Swimming worthy. YES. March.  I know you must think I’m crazy depending on who you are, if you aren’t from Canada and think we are supposed to be covered in snow, we’ll we are supposed to be but nope Mother Nature wants us to bring them sunglasses out early.  

There is one small problem. ALL my summer cloths and shoes and EVERYTHING are in my storage while we are redoing my house (which we are on the last coat of painting and then I can move back in ^.^) See that wouldn’t be that bad of a problem If I could get to it without having to move a whole house worth of stuff. Oh and it gets worst I have only two dresses out and everything else is like winter-ish stuff like thick sweaters and Fuzzy leggings and Whooly-Man socks, Yes I went there. And yes they are Trev’s, and he does know but he isn’t proud of me. Guy’s socks are just so much warmer; you girls know what I’m talking about? You go to Arden’s and buy cute socks and your feet freeze, you have to wear like three pairs to be able to feel your toe’s after a small walk.

This is an old pic of about 2 years but Idealy this is what I need: Sunglasses, Shorts, Purse, and Gladiator sandals.

Idealy this is what I need: Sunglasses, Shorts, Gladiator Sandals. Sadly I have none. 😦

So I have no summer clothes this is a HUGE deal, I don’t know what to do.  I have a budget which allows me to not spend money on myself :/ Because I already spent that part of the budget for March, and April is so so so far away. So I have come up with one solution, borrowing 🙂 You know where I’m heading … I mean swap for a few days. I don’t have any shorts or skirts so the last thing to do is when you’re in need resort to a good friend who completely understands what you’re going through.

It was so nice out that I got to go for a small jog and am motivated to getting my body back in shape. Thanks to the help of Dutchess I’m always running after her, but that’s because I’m trying to show her how to play fetch, though I secretly think she just likes to see me run and get the ball. She is probably thinking to herself “Haha now you know how it feels to go fetch, do you like it? Huh?” Haha I know insanity right?

So my goals for this week are:

  • To run 5 days x 30 mins .

  • To make sure the SPCA fundraiser for dog leashes does amazing at school.

  • To borrow a pair of shorts.

  • And work some odd job to give me cash fast,

  • And to get all this homework done, it is seriously taking over my life. You miss three days and suffer for weeks. Bleh.

  • Get my car back. ..

My car that’s something you guys have been out of the loop about. Well let’s just say if the mechanic was a doctor my car was just brought back to life. I have so many engine problem which included two leaks which lead to no Prestone which lead to overheating, then all my sensory’s broke, then some of those fuse thingy’s went. Now that I think about it that all happened in one day, maybe this death is faster than what I thought. I need a new car.

(I would insert a picture her bu that would be devastating :s)

I think I’m done here for the day, Maybe I’ll be back here with some good news like I won a car from Roll up the Rim at Tim Hourtons, ooo how I wish this 🙂  or the TV would be my next best option.  Can’t you tell I’m Canadian eh?

xo

Who ordered snow?

While walking my dog today I saw a Canadian goose, I thought to myself “awe” And then I was like “hey wait, why are you still lurking around, aren’t you supposed to be migrated down south?” So puzzled I continued to walk my dog around the park. Why would the bird not follow the rest of his little friends? This is something that bothers me, all alone with no friends in the freezing winter cold. This is why these birds hibernate!

So, on my walk I also discovered the trueness of the word husky, snow loving puppy. I swear there must be something wrong with my dog. How does she LOVE snow so much? Here I am with a huge jacket a scarf boots and all, freezing my ass off and she’s rolling, I mean on her back flipping around, eating snow, trying to chase after little snowflakes. When we get back home she refuses to come up the steps into the house and I’m running late for school… as usual. So I have to pick her up and bring her in the house while she is completely refusing. Finally everything works out.  I give her food and then I run to school and here I am typing this up while there is a snow blizzard outside.

I’d like to take a moment to wish my puppy a Happy 3 months Birthday? I don’t know if anyone does this, or if I am just crazy?
