I ran out of time for the one course that I had enrolled in at university as I had that hard drive crash and other things,. When I went to the website it did NOT give me the option of requesting an extension but ONLY to withdraw. I am so behind as I misread some of the info amongst other things. I have never NOT completed a course in my life. I am so disheartened.

    Sometimes circumstances beyond our control happen and we have to regroup. I hope you can take it soon.

Still bloody hot worked outside for an hour right after lunch as there was no room . (one of my so called coworkers being an idiot). Miserably hot - no wonder the very first thing I do is put on shorts when I get home. Thankfully I can feel a breeze and tomorrow is only supposed to be about 70-72 or so (YES I still DO the Fahrenheit thing- we used to be on Imperial measurement up here - only thing was "our" gallon was bigger (British gallon)). Actually when I worked for Environment Canada there was a big uproar as there was a considerable ANTI-METRIC faction as they had to get rid of a LOT of Calibrated thermometers and other instruments. (this meant ironically that AIR PRESSURE was still done in imperial measure millibars as the mercury barometers -with their attached thermometers -(you have to take the room temperature into account to get an accurate reading as the mercury in the barometer "wants" to pretend its STILL a thermometer LOL) in degrees F.

    It's supposed to get really hot here this weekend . I dread it. My little pet is so sick. I hope he can make it.

I get all messed up with conversions for the metric system, apothecary system, etc.

Happy has since shown up for some weird reason he seems to be a fast healer as he no longer limps (there was another cat who showed up and the wife was convinced it (and Happy) had a litter under my old truck until; she discovered she was a HE) .Its been hot since the weekend and (it was 85 in my computer room before supper) I am so gload we bought an air conditioner for the bedroom. And to think I was lifting weights at 10 pm last night because of the heat and being an indolent idiot.At least I don`t have to worry about not drinking my 8 cups of water.......

not too much to say. Happy hasn't been around for a couple of days and I hate to think he might be dead somewhere I know his one front leg is no good. Very tired I have to work Monday and then I get Tuesday off and then work the rest of the week.Hope everyone has a good weekend

I went ahead and edited a few old blogs that had typos that irked me. And in the process this stupid site went and credited me for having entered a blog, Even thought I HADN'T. I had to go for a walk today as I went and rook someone's steeped tea instead of my Tim Horton's COFFEE. Consequently I ended up having to walk from work and buy one. Two things I noticed- first I didn't recall it feeling this much of a challenge before and second - I guess I really am NOT getting enough cardio from just weight lifting and WORK (as challenging as it CAN be). Oddly enough as much as I can HATE it. I really miss cardio ( and a few other things).
Yeah tomorrow is Thursday just 2 more days to go.

    Editing is good. I should do more of that.

Sometimes walking for me is easy - like on level surfaces. Not so much on concrete or up hills.

I prefer tea. I don't drink coffee. LOL.
