Just Bitchin’ – It’s been a while….

Large gap in posts – sorry about that!  I came down with a very nasty cold bug…..much better now though.

I couldn’t help myself – I watched the Sens first hockey game yesterday afternoon.  They got off to a rocky start, but thanks to good goal-tending, we won our first game!!!  I’m still angry – mostly at the players – for the loss of half of the season so I probably won’t spend my money at the arena this year.

Much of what is still spinning around in the news is “old news” in my rants or in my raves – nothing has changed when it comes to “garbage” or “healthcare” or “Quebec” or “bilingualism”  or “unions” but now we have “Idle no More”.

Idle no More – because they are sitting on railway tracks or on Parliament Hill!!!  How much of my tax dollars has gone to first nations people?  What have they done – or are they doing – to help themselves?  They get my money and don’t feel a need to account for how they spent it???  There is something very wrong with this picture.  This one will get ugly before it gets any better.

Man – another thing – our long awaited trip with Collette Vacations to Provence, Monaco and Tuscay in May got cancelled – not enough people signed up.  Back to the drawing board.  We may have found something similar with SeniorTours – more research needed before making any decisions.

The snow just stopped and the sun has come out.  All is well (for now).


Happy 2013

Seems like eons since I last posted anything – but it hasn’t really been that long.

I’m so glad the “happy holiday” season is over.  I may try to escape it all next year by running away somewhere…..maybe even completely by myself!

Christmas decorations are now down, outside Christmas lights turned off and that’s it for another year.  I managed to come down with my annual nasty chesty viral cold last week – and in spite of laying low since last Thursday, it isn’t getting any better.  I can usually count on 10 days of misery with these darned things.

On the brighter side – I am going out today (to share my germs) to see Billy Elliot at the NAC – tickets have been purchased for months now – so I’m not going to miss this.  I’m going armed with kleenex and cough lozenges – and of course, it’s snowing AGAIN.   I hope I’m past the stage of sharing this bug with my friends.

I wish all my friends and family nothing but the best for 2013.
