pancakes anyone ...

well, it's definitely been awhile since i've felt like blobbing.  the highlight so far this year was a trip to kelowna to look after my favorite redhead!   and those who know me realize what a challenge this was for me.  you know - 50+ - no kids - no idea what to do with them - but regardless i was pretty excited.

check out the selfie !


bob left me 2 pages of instructions, 4 maps to various places i'd have to drive to, and an awesome illustrated guide on which remotes did what ...


the first night went well.  after a fuck-up with the flight and arriving 4 hours late, we had to drive bob 30 minutes north of kelowna for his work thingy.  i then had to drive me and the redhead back down the mountain in a fucking snowstorm!  again, for those of you who know me, this was nerve wracking!  at night, bob's brand new audi, in a snowstorm, with a precious cargo in the back seat!  if i drank, i would have had a good stiff one when we finally arrived.  glad to have survived, we celebrated by NOT having a bath!  seriously, how smelly could a little kid get in one day?! 

the next morning i made, according to him, the perfect omelet, although i'm pretty sure he was just being nice!


friday went well, except that i got him a little late to school!  bob's fault - he put the wrong time down on my instructions!  and i forgot his snacks, but no worries, i dropped them off as soon as i realized!  after school we went to the mall and bought some army men and then dined out in style at denny's !


the rest of the weekend went really well.  we hung out, watched about 20 episodes of big bang theory, painted some army men and basically just had a great time being together.
  

i was really feeling good about our visit and how well things had gone when we met bob at the airport sunday morning.  until he noticed that ben had his pants on backwards.   DOH!  but hay, if that's the worse i did, i'm okay with it.  i was really really sad to leave and can't wait to get back out there!

so besides the few days with the redhead, it's been life as usual.  lots of crossfit - getting ready for the open end of february ...


haha!   everybody loves hump day ...


love this pic !


and i've been 'trying' to get in some good runs.  weather sure has tested me though.  first there was the big ice storm ...


then the minus thirty days ...


and the snow!



i've even kind of started a 'breakfast' club with the crossfit crew after sunday mass with father jimmy!
 

i did get out for a couple of hours in albion on saturday!  they groom the trails for skiing so i'm finding this the best place to run for now.
 

i ran into these two characters!  arnie and former bin sergeant nick !!


my happy place ...


and because kat's been showing her arse off again ...


i figured i'd 'one up' her.  seriously, what happened to my ass?!  where did it go ?!



in all seriousness, it's really great to have my buddy back!   men of crossfit bolton - look out!


and finally, i got me a new tattoo.  now i can permanently wear my heart on my sleeve ...


love you mfs ...
