Again, I did not have much time to post (fighting off the tail end of that nasty virus I had and been too cold to do anything else) so I decided to do a "what is happening in my life" personal post. First of all, we began apartment hunting again. I hate the idea of moving so soon considering we have only been here for a little over a year but I have some neighbors who are most probably schizophrenic. I am a little concerned for my son's safety. Apparently, making normal noise sets them off and they are convinced we are using ray guns to send beams downstairs to mess with their cell phone reception. They also think we have machines to spy on them. This is the second building in two years where I lived next to "special people". My last apartment had "crazy lady bang wall" next door who thought doing a load of laundry at 8pm was disrespectful. Buying a house in Montreal is super expensive and moving off island is not a choice for us. If I have to live in the burbs, I would much rather be a 15-20 minute car ride away from downtown, thank you very much. I am sorry, I know many people can do it but you can take the girl out of the city but not the city out of the girl!
I was quite pissed off Friday night too. I called saying I was going to be 15 minutes late for an apartment viewing and the people never bothered to show up to show me the place. The weather here has been extremely cold, just being outside for 5 minutes and I lost feeling in my hands with gloves on. To make matters worse, I had my son with me. Oh well, it was late so he had McDonald's for supper! At least someone was happy!
Today, my son was sick (I blame it on those jerks not showing up, he caught a draft by being out in the cold) so I had to stay home from work. He has the sniffles but had a fever this morning. His complexion was also paler than usual. He spent most of the day in bed with me, which was nice.
I re-did my hair this weekend. I will be doing a post along with a product review soon, so stay tuned!
I have to admit, this weekend I rested. I am getting over that nasty virus and it was just too darned cold to go do anything else. The highlight was at work on Friday afternoon. We celebrate everyone's birthdays and considering mine is tomorrow, I got mentionned along with coworkers who have birthdays this month. I was half serious when I requested a chocolate Hello Kitty cake. My super creative co-worker who makes these on her spare time no less , delivered. I was so happy when I saw my very own signature cake for me!
