A quickie...

Hey there!

It's been a while. I know, I know. I'm doing this more and more lately, making you wait for juicy snackies from my little life. Letting days go by without nary a peep from me. Giving you more of a bi weekly dash than a daily one. Oh, how I let you down.

My bad. A thousand apologies.

But life's been pretty nutso, really. Last week was spent gearing up for the Weekend to End Breast Cancer. Hubs and I volunteered at the event, and spent a few nights shopping, etc, getting ready to decorate our vans (we were part of the sweep crew) and then the big weekend was upon us all of the sudden.

We had to gather at 6am on Saturday, which meant we had to be up at 4:15 to make it there on time. Unfreakin real. Who in their right mind is up at that time of the day? Not even the flippin sun deems it reasonable to make an appearance in those wee hours.

So we worked our 13 hours, then made a beeline for the 'comfort' of our lovely smoking room at the Comfort Inn. We were asleep by 9:30. Out. Like a light. Dead to the world. But my eyeballs were still burning when 5am came.

Hubs had supercharged the air conditioning so I woke up a gazillion times, teeth chattering, full on shivers, nattering to myself about how insane it is that not only can he sleep comfortably at this temperature, but that he's also found a way to kick the covers off both of us. Grrr....

But that wake up call did come at 5am, so I hopped into the shower to warm up at last, then it was out into the rainy Sunday morning to greet the 5,521 walkers on day two. 27 kms and 14 hours later, we were finally home sweet home. We celebrated a great weekend, the fact that $17.3 million was raised, and most of all - that it was over!!

We were in bed again at 9:30 and I'll tell ya, slipping into those sheets was my idea of heaven at that very moment. Pure bliss. Fell asleep as my head hit the pillow, and before I knew it, it was morning all over again.

Despite all those delicious hours of slumber, I'm still tired dead stupid today. Fell asleep on the GO train in both directions, and almost flipped the last Harry Potter in some unsuspecting Soduku playing Dockers wearing fellow commuter. My cat like reflexes allowed me a just in the nick of time catch and all humiliation was spared. Did well to wake me up, though!

So I'm off to bed yet again. Tres sleepy. And I have to get some good cuddle time in with Hubs as he's leaving me tomorrow to go out of town until Friday. And that sucks. Three nights in a row in the house all by myself.

Anyone wanna come for a sleepover? :)

And that's your daily dash. How's your diva doin'?
