Long Days, Short Nights

Posted in Uncategorized on August 26, 2008 by leighfellows

Well, lately I have been working some excruciatingly long days at the hospital, and my hours of slumber have been getting a bit short.

It’s funny…. Everyone is getting ready to go to school, and I’m not…for the first time since kindergarden. I went into Staples last night to get some paperwork photocopied, and I was completely engulfed by parents and their children, running around like chaotic chickens (sans head, or course). I was overwhelmed, but I caught myself getting a bit jealous as well. I was one of those kids who was COMPLETELY wrapped up in getting cool new binders and pens, and searching for that amazing ‘first day’ outfit.

And now I’m standing at Staples – in my hospital scrubs –  getting work stuff photocopied.

As I got back into the car (with Max, whom my Daddyo brought when he picked me up from work), I realized, this is what life is like after high school and university/college.

 – Long days and short nights

Thank God for puppies, friends, family, and martinis.

Welcome Max

Brought into this world on April 29th, 2008, ‘Max’ has now graciously joined my lil nuclear family.

On August 4th, my Mum and Dad conspired a plan where they tricked me into believing they were helping my aunt and uncle move some furniture… they were really going to New Glasgow and picking up my new lil man.

He’s a pure-bred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. and he snores every night like it was going out of style. But hey, I absolutely love this about him. it reminds me of my ex bf (lol). < just kiddin’!…kinda….

 

btw, anyone who may have seen the new Monopoly board, Canada scored 3 spots! Montreal (replacing Boardwalk!!), Vancouver, and Toronto.      My question is, where the HELL is Halifax?? or how about St John’s?? or to get REALLY creative, Dildo (which is in NFLD, for those who don’t know!)

i’m disappointed in the creators of Monopoly. i expected more from the World Edition.

I’m going to boycot Monopoly….

 

which is good. i bloody suck at that game anyways!
