I’m Going to Cry When We Win the GOLD.

I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging much. This is week three of doing my job plus covering half days doing someone else’s job at work, so my brain feels like mush. Aside from work, the only thing I’ve really been able to think about is hockey. You guys have no idea how much Canadians love their game- it’s truly insane here right now. I’m actually really regretting switching my vacation from February to April. I would have been in Vancouver right now experiencing  it all first hand with CH and her hubby. Oh well, maybe I’ll get a second chance during the NHL playoff’s. I’m hoping that when Canada wins GOLD, Iginla will come home pumped and my home boys take it all the way to the cup. We can only hope.

I Survived V-Day, Just Long Enough to Hear You Bash my Country

Good news bloggers: I made it through Valentine’s Day without getting insanely depressed and slitting my wrists. Whoo hoo! Actually, my weekend wasn’t half bad. I spent Friday in front of the TV with a glass (okay, two glasses) of wine, cheering on Team Canada during the opening ceremonies for the Olympics. On Saturday I got together with my friend EB for a little shopping. We checked out this great little store that my Twitter friend had recommended. I bought some great new glassware on sale (you should see the size of the wine glasses!). During our little visit, I made a point of telling EB that after all the things her friends have done for her in the last year, I would be really disappointed if she didn’t go to the coast with me over Easter to see M for her birthday. After all, M’s best friend just died. She needs us. I spent Saturday evening having dinner and watching funny YouTube commercials with the Italian and since he blew me off on Sunday when we were supposed to go for a drive out-of-town, I spent the day shopping for new curtains and lamps with my Mom instead. Yesterday was a long weekend for some provinces in Canada so I lounged around the house and did a little redecorating while my Mom hemmed my new curtains.  Nothing like putting your parents to good use.

I’m sure you’ve figured out by now (with my new blog header and all) that I’m a little bit excited for the Olympic Men’s Hockey. Tonight I’m skipping out of work a bit early to make it home for the start of our first game. Gooooo Canada!! I really hope we take Gold this year. Anything else just won’t be good enough when it comes to hockey. I honestly don’t even care about the rest.

Speaking of Olympics- what’s with the hate on for Canada right now? Accidents happen people. They happen here, they happen there. We do our best to be cautious and proactive but shit still happens, and it’s always going to- that’s just a fact of life. Have we become so irrational that we’ve forgotten that? I’m growing so sick of hearing people bash Canada this week. Seriously, shut the fuck up.
