While I Was Out

Some things I did during the past 5 months while I wasn't blogging (in no particular order)
  • drank a lot of wine (not in a wino sort of way)
  • finished my PR certification (the dizzying heights to which this piece of paper is going to take my career are nothing short of dizzying... stay tuned for regular updates)
  • found a better route to take to walk to work
  • spent 5 1/2 hours at the emergency at CHEO (a dumbfounding experience)
  • skated on the canal for the first time
  • wrote a book (first draft)
  • read a bunch of books about and/or set in France
  • visited blogs randomly
  • thought of lots of stuff I wanted to blog about, but now I can't remember any of it
  • did about 40 loads of laundry

Oh, and I don't have any suggestions on any pets (in response to your previous post). We have two kitties and love them. Originally, we said we wanted to get a puppy when Claire turned 3, and now we're not so sure. We like sleeping through the night and being able to leave on vacation without having to board a dog... :)

In 5 months, I'm pretty sure I do about 140 loads of laundry. I'm impressed!!

You're back! Yippi!!!!

CP - ya what to do with the dog when we're away weighs heavily on my mind - a definite big check on the "con" side.

Grandy - I'm only doing laundry for 2 and we have big honkin' laundry-related machines

Jazz - thanks & I'm looking forward to reading more from you now that you're back from wandering the world

Welcome back to the virtual world of mindless connection . As you can see bloggers read blogs too and it is not a sin to do so. You don't need an issue of major importance to blog .. I am a prime example of that . I love dogs I am suggesting one for you although cats are easier to care for , dogs get you out of the house . When you get back from the dog walk , you can blog about it.
Dog gone simple . I am betting Tony was Bob .

Welcome back XUP!

XUP said...

Ma - I also believe Tony was Bob. Maybe he was just embarassed because he had a Tim Horton's coffee stain on his shirt! And, good point on the dog blogging possibilities.

Hi Robin!

JB said...

Would dog-blogging be hyphenated? < Like that?
...or would it be just one word?
Just curious.

XUP said...

JB - I think it's 2 completely separate words, like: cockroach racing, cow tipping or wolf baiting

JB said...

Wolf Baiting?
Isn't that the guy on CNN?

xup, you're back. Love reading the posts. Will you post about Corrie too? lol

XUP said...

Hi HP - thanks and I may very well mention Corrie now and again although I'm finding it increasingly irritating these days
