Friday Thoughts

Weekend is here! Who is excited? I am! ย Short weeks are great, minus the hit to the pocket book, but whatever….

Some Friday Thoughts


1. Garbage delay?

So apparently garbage sorry recycling and green bin (it is an Ottawa thing) pick-up is delayed by a day this week. Mostly everyone on my street (including us) did not realize this and there is black bins and green bins all on the street. We also have a bag of diapers. For those who are not from Ottawa, we only have our garbage picked up every other week – but families with diapers can have one bag of diapers out. I really don’t get the garbage calendar. They picked up on Boxing Day this year. It was a surprise to everyone – because when the garbage trucks rolled down the street, you could see everyone (who was actually home) run out and try to get their garbage on the curb. The garbage collectors came early too

2. Ambulance/Police on my street…again

No idea why – no sirens/lights or anything

3. ย My neighbour knocked on the door

and asked for three potatoes…..random!

4. Not a big fan of strollers

Yes, I know that may be a bit of a shocker since I have a child and all, but really – I am not a fan of strollers. We rarely use ours, and when we did it was mostly for mall-strollin. Now, Max simply walks himself. If we did have to go anywhere really congested or something like that, I would carry him (the airport, race weekend, places/events where a stroller would be more of a pain than a tool). I brought the stroller on the bus once, and that was enough for me to say never again. This thought comes from the amount of strollers at the local Starbucks today. So many babies….

Now, saying all of that, I do like my Chariot Stroller, but we use that to run and roller blade – soon to bike. That is totally different ๐Ÿ˜‰ (not really)

5. Starbucks Friday Coffee = yum





P is at the school volunteering at a fundraising event. He saved me a donut – SPRINKLES!!

7. Clinic/No-clinic

There is a coaches clinic for throwing events in a couple of weeks on a Saturday. I thought great, a clinic I can actually attend (I always have conflicts with the other clinics). So I emailed and reserved a spot. Get home and get an email from my employer with info on a mandatory interview that I need to complete to be allowed to be hired for job that I’ve been doing for 4 years – on the same day as the clinic. Great, no clinic for me ๐Ÿ™

8. STOPย 





That is all….

Have a great Friday Night!

    Garbage pick up on Boxing Day makes sense- probably the busiest pick up day of the year being right after Christmas. The bag of diapers is kinda funny!

    I love my stroller! I use it everywhere I can! It is a pain sometimes though but mostly the benefits outweigh the annoyances. Audrey didn’t really like being worn until she could wrap her legs around me (so 5 or 6 months) so we had to use the stroller everywhere we went. Thankfully she is still pretty content in it.

    That sucks about the clinic! I love how you have to be interviewed for a job you have already been doing. So insulting…

      yup, tell me about it – but to be fair, it isn’t my employer that is doing this, it is the government ๐Ÿ™


    You are so cute. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I had Starbucks today!
    I had a sugar cookie that was decorated much like your donut!
    Sorry about the interview! ๐Ÿ™
