We decided to switch from Shaw to Telus and man oh man why we didn't start out with gmail accounts I have no idea.
Quick- everyone with babies that's reading this : make your babies a gmail account if their name is still available. They'll thank you for it later!

I bought these jeans on a whim 3-4 years ago and have wore them twice.
Tonight is paint nite so I thought I should wear something old "just in case". I am clumsy and these paints aren't washable so let's be practical.
And now that I've got them on I remember why I bought them- they are unbelievably comfy.

It's 6:49 Friday morning and my workout is checked off the to-do list.
I really like to exercise. Maybe not waking up so early but the activity and feeling of accomplishment afterwards are priceless. I also like to eat. A lot. I joke that we are a family of foodies.
So in January Aaron and I joined Orange Theory and try and go 3-4 times a week at the crack of dawn before work.
The idea is that you wear heart rate monitors to gauge your level of activity thru heart rate and then you're given a performance summary of calories burned and splat points which are minutes spent in the Orange/red zone. 12-20 minutes in the "Orange" zone and you shall achieve the afterburn effect and continue to burn calories for hours after your workout.
I highly recommend it! Even with a bulged disc the trainers are able to modify my exercises so I still get an effective workout.

I think my appliances/toys seem to have a 10-15 year lifespan and that's it. That's the trend lately anyways.
This morning while prepping lunch I witnessed the demise of my super handy mini food processor.
I made the boys baby food with this machine so I'm pretty confident it's been well used over the past 13 years. I still use it once or twice a week so I'm sure I will be shopping for a replacement, it's so
much more convenient than my ginormous heavy Cuisinart!

As previously mentioned last week in the I Dislike Wedneaday post, my boys deliver flyers.
Today they will have the added pleasure of delivering Wish Books to some lucky households.
I generally don't like catalogues but there's something about the Wish Book that I love.
I'm guessing it's the nostalgia of Christmas's past and making lists of what I was wishing for Christmas.
I never did get the pleather biker jacket I wanted when I was 10 but I did get a real leather biker jacket when I was 16 lol.
