Must keep head above water


That's my two boys there. I haven't spent much time with them lately though since I'm always at work. I'm heading into my eighth week with ZERO days off and I'm about to explode. I woke up this morning panicky because there is simply too much to get done in too little time. The deadline for my trucking course manual was Thursday and though I thought I had it all in on Tuesday, Friday morning I received a buttload of changes that need to be done which will eat up all day today. So when am I going to get done what I was supposed to have done today? I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other and hopefully this will all work out.

At least it's springtime. Sunny days in the 50's! Heaven. Serge opened the patio for the season. His cedars that he potted last year survived. I was certain they would perish in the harsh winter cold, but the nursery guy told Serge to saturate them well just before the first freeze and the ice would protect the roots. I didn't believe it, but it turns out he was right.

Did you know that it is illegal to leave your car unlocked here? If a cop spies your unlocked car on the street, he/she will issue a ticket, put it inside the vehicle and lock the car for you. I couldn't believe it when I heard that. Talk about a nanny state.

Here's a funny picture my student took of me with her (super bitchin') ipad 2.


Wanna kiss?

There's more, but you'll have to content yourself with this for now. I shouldn't even be doing this when there is so much to get done. Have yourselves a nice weekend.

By the looks of that recent pic of you, you better get a break soon! lol

Cubby said...

I got my iPad 2 on order. I'll be so excited when it gets here.

Blobby said...

LOL. The pic is great. I can do that w/my MacBook, but opt not too - my ugly doesn't need any more help.

The other pic though is frickin' frame-able.

Hang in there. This busy time will pass. Hugs to you all

Georgie is channeling Garbo. Frame that picture. And get some sleep.

Mel said...

That pic of you looks almost exactly like a client I saw last night. And his dog was like a basset version of Georgie.

Anonymous, too said...

Is work dumping on the new guy? Or did you bite off more than you can chew? Either way, you'll feel better if you schedule some fun time with your boys.

And what on Earth did Serge do to earn a cold shoulder like that from Georgie? Hope they kiss and make up soon!

So, what I am hearing is that the police in Montreal have little to do.

Maurice said...

OMG, you're kidding about the police and unlocked car doors, right? I'm usually in the habit of locking but, just wait: the one time I'll forget, they'll catch me.

Well, of your two boys, I'd say Georgie is the least modest. :)

Hang in there under your mountain of work...

Georgie looks like he is mad at Serge.

Mrs. Coffeedog doesn't read your blog, but I do show her the Georgie pics - she is smitten with him. Every time theree is fresh Georgie content I yell for her to come see him.

8 weeks! You poor thing. No rest for the weary.

Basking in the 60s here. Loving the warmer weather.

Patricia said...

Hell must be frozen over because I now see that it really is possible for you to take a bad pic.

Not so much for Georgie, though.

Rox said...

Georgie: "I can't even look at you!"

Serge: "I'll never blame my farts on you again, please forgive me!"

Nice pic, puckerpuss! It will get better...it has to, right? :)

Snooze said...

No days off in eight weeks? That my friend is indeed rough. I hope that you are at least sleeping well.

Locking car doors seems a better option than trying to recover a stolen vehicle. I sense a Gallic perspective there.
