Thinking Out Loud Thursday #54

Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons.


#1 Giveaway!!!

Last chance to get your name in the hat for a chance to win a bib to an upcoming Night Race. There are dates in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal. Not many entries, so it may be very easy to win. The race is fun – you have a choice of a 5K or 10K. Enter HERE – all you have to do is leave a comment and you are entered.


#2 Kill Bill 3???!!

There is a rumour that Kill Bill 3 is going to be made soon. If you haven’t watched Kill Bill 1 and 2 – you need to. It is a tad bit violent, ok very violent – but a great film. The rumours about Kill Bill 3 have been around for quite some time, with the idea that the film would be made when “kids” of Kill Bill 1/2 (Vernita’s daughter and Beatrix) would be adults. Not going to say anything more in case you haven’t seen the film – but you should! Go! Now!

#3 Ikea Catalogue!

You know it is almost September when the Ikea Catalogue arrives at your door. I’m sure I’m not the only one who likes to browse through the magazine and look at all the Ikea products, wishing you could go on a shopping spree. We have tons of Ikea products at our home – desks, bookshelves, toys. I also like the meatballs.


#4 Waiting for Work

It is that time of year again – the wait to see what I will be teaching and where I will be teaching. I used to find out in June, but now we don’t find out until the end of August. I won’t know my placement (if I even have one) until August 27th at the very earliest. I’m hoping for full time work this year. I’ve been on part-time status for almost two years and that is getting a little old. I’ve applied to a bunch of schools, including the ones I worked at last year. Fingers crossed! I also started applying to some part time jobs – just looking for extra hours per week to supplement my income. Ideally, we want to move next spring/summer – and therefore we need to save our pennies.

#5 IAAF World Champs!

Who is excited about World Track and Field Champs?!?  I am!! The event is in Beijing this year from August 22-30. It is looking like a great event. Of course, Lanni Marchant is running (along with Tasha) in the 10,000m event. Here is the link for the timetable and another link for the broadcasting information. The event will be live streamed via YouTube as well .Events are during our morning and evenings due to the time change! This event is a pretty big deal for the track and field world. It is the best of the best for 2015 – and a big goal meet for the elite athletes. Tune in and watch!




That is all I have for today – Have a great Thursday!

    Good luck with the school posting! I always go in Ikea looking for one thing and end up with a car load of stuff every time I go in.

    I wish there was an Ikea in my neck of the woods. Whenever my husband and I are in the big city (where they do exist) we try and make a stop if we have the car space and time (because it’s pointless to go into an Ikea if you don’t have any room in your car). 🙂
