You know, I could give a flying F what communities people start but being a Canadian and being Albertan I had to LAUGH when I found this community hating on our PM Steven Harper http://community.livejournal.com/harper_sucks/ I was curious and went through some of the users infor to see where they were from... and I laughed and laughed, why did I laugh because all of the registered users, but a hand full are from the east -- Easteners in Canada LOVE and worship the liberals....

Mr. Harper is not only Conservative but he is ALBERTAN and he will stand up for the west. Like his predessessor liberals stood up for the east -and it is about time we had a PM that stood up for the West, after all the west is leading the way, eps.

Alberta and what is the east bringing to the table -eastern move to Alberta daily, because we have opportuniy here. And THAT my friends is why the hate community for Harper.

I just find it very, very funny. OMG I have to leave this public.

It is about time the West had a voice and Mr. Harper is that voice!!

On the List

Hey there. Why do weekends go so fast? already Sunday and in 24 hours I have to go to work for. Ah well, I will just seize the day I guess. I have spent most of the weekend cleaning, and re-organizing. The volume of paper and junk that comes though this house simply amazes me. I would LOVE to just throw it all out but having a contracting business just won't allow me to do that. I try to maintain some level of organization but I gotta tell you sometimes it jsut gets away from me. So today I shall finish and be ORGANIZED AGAIN!

Last night hubby and I went out for dinner. First we tried the The Keg, first we were forced to park a block and a half away. The th hostess upstairs says there is a half hour wait for a table in the dining room, but says we can try down in the bar. So we go down there and NOPE no table. So back to the truck, we go to Kelsey's. We got a table there but we would have been better off waiting the half hour for a table at the Keg. The service was terrible and SLOW.

It took more than 10 minutes for the waitress to come take our drink order, which by the time she did finally come, we were ready to order.

It then took another 10 minutes for our drinks to come, and when she did bring them hubby got a bottle of Kokane and not the mug of draft he asked for. THEN 10 15 minutes later I had to ASK for our appetizer!!! to which her response was "Oh you ordered an appetizer? what was it" *eye roll*. This was the same time that I pointed out that the table next to us was ALSO trying to get the waitresses attention.

Get and eat our appetizer, which was good. and we sat and WAITED for our entree'. In the meantime we watched a group of 3 walk out the door as they got their food... they had been there BEFORE we got there. Shortly after they left we got our food... I gotta be honest with you, I think my meal was came off the table that left (uneaten and untouched of course). Why do I say that? well because I seen the same meal delivered to that table. It WAS COLD, I ordered my steak medium, this one was rare, I ordered a baked potatoe this one had mashed. and the steak tasted all but what I had been anticipating. I even let My husband have a taste of it and he 100% agreed that is tasted like crap.

Oh and I forgot to mention the flies that came with the meal!!! 2 of the buggers buzzing around our food. Really gross.

So I pushed my plate away and said that I was going to complain. Haubby gave me the card to pay, and went to start the truck. I waited to speak to the manager and lodged my complaints. AS a result the manager advised that the 'meal' (and use that term loosely - because I didn't even eat). Was on the house -- so basically we got 2 beer, on $6.00 drink, hubbys so-so meal and the appy, for free. The manager also asked me how our waitress was; I was completely honest and told him 'terrible and a little timid', he thanked me for being honest and said it was her first night. I didn't even feel bad about saying what I said when he told me it was her first night. I understand the learning process but someone should have been supervising her in timing. 10 minutes to have your drink order taken and then 10 minutes to get your drinks and so on, is not good.

So the manager made it right, but I can't see us going back there. Now there are 2 resturants in this city we will not go back to Kelseys and Dennys... oh and Egans for me, because I find them VERY slow... but hubby will go back because like all the male population in this city, likes the short little kilt type skirts the waitresses wear.

Needless to say we would have been better off and done quicker had we waited the 1/2 hour at the keg.

Off to go be the queen of organization now. Have a great Sunday.

November 1rst 2003

Wow halloween is over and done with now begins the fun of preparing for Christmas *rubs hands together in anticipation* I am looking forward to decorating my house pretty for Christmas. Hubby said that we are going to do lots of outside stuff for decorating this year.

The kids made off with quite the haul last night and they had fun, trick or treating is always a family event. We drive the kids around, they do a block then we go to another areas of town, we do this for about an hour or so and then we make random stops at friends houses' where we get treats of our own *winks*. So they had fun last night, and were pooped.. so was mom (but it doesn't take much to get mom pooped out these days.)

I went to the doctor yesterday because I have been getting a pain around my third rib on the right side, it almost feels like having a heart attack when the pain hits, very sharp and spreads to my arms, and lasts about 10-20 minutes at a time, but does not happen regularly either. But also I have been having problems breathing, I sometimes have to take real deep breaths and that is not natural, plus if I lay on my back of stomach it is very uncomfortable breathing wise. So anyways, my doctor is sending my for x-rays and an electrocardiogram to be sure it is not my heart, which he is pretty sure it is not, what he does think it is though is something called "costochondritis" which is the inflamation of cartliage where the ribs attach to the breast bone. Therefore because of the swelling around the ribs the lungs cannot expand which is why I have problems breathing.

It is not really known the cause of this condition, but the only way to ease the pain is with some type of anti-inflammatory. I have to adjust my lifestyle so that this will heal, and so that I do not feel the discomfort as often. Things that agravate it are; cold, rainy, humid weather, stress, exessive lifting, pulling, pushing long hours of driving or using computer, repetitive motions and caffeine, and smoking is not good either.

The bigget change I am going to be making is quitting smoking, the doctor gave me a prescription for Zyban which I start taking today and my quit date is set for next Sunday. I will be more than happy to get rid of that stupid habit! not only because of this condition but for a million other reasons as well. It is amazng how some smokers can be so stubbron to not want to quit until they find out that they have some sort of condition or disease that is either the leading cause from smoking or hinders the condition. I guess I am one of those people who wouldn't give uo until I knew it was affecting my health, and my life. What a dumb shit. But no more after next week I am giving up the disgusting dirty habit for good.

Okay I best get back to work I have a lot to do before I leave this office at 1:00... and it is already 11:30!! I am going to have a busy rest of the day when I leave here as well. My son has another hockey game today, then I have a Chamber banquet to go to this evening.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Sheryl Crow/Kid Rock

I Love this song...

Kid Rock:

Livin my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night at the hotel
I ain't seen the sunshine
In three damn days
Been fuelin'up on cocaine and whiskey
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her

Sheryl Crow:

I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows but they won't tell
But their half-hearted smiles tell me somethin' just ain't right
I've been waitin' on you for a long time
Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in three damn nights
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him


I saw you yesterday with an old friend (Sheryl Crow)
It was the same old same how've you been? (Kid Rock)
Since you've been gone my worlds been dark and grey (Together)
You reminded me of brighter days (Kid Rock)
I hoped you were comin' home to stay (Sheryl Crow)
I was headed to church (Sheryl Crow)
I was off to drink you away (Kid Rock)


I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't understand why we're living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I just called to say I love you, come back home

Bad picture up ahead, but back in 1997 this is what my hair was like, though I had not had a hair cut for awhile, so it should be shorter, but i loved it and is similar to number 2 of my last post...

And remember no funny comments (I was tired that day and just returned from 4 days of family reunion and 2 weeks of packing to move *lol*)
