Deb - you live in Kamloops? How do you like it? Dh can transfer there but I'm too scared...I've heard a lot of negatives about it. I want to move to Kelowna but no hope for a job there for Dh...he can transfer to Kamloops or Penticton. I do need to get out of the city tho. Which is weird bc I've lived in large cities my whole life...

I have got my 2 extra workouts in for 2 weeks now. Phew. Feels good. I took it really easy this week tho bc I have been sick and school is killing me. I'm really struggling to keep up. I don't know if I can do 2 years of this, yikes!

yay for hockey being back! going to see the home opener of the Canucks tomm.

Hope everyone else is starting the year off right too.

Hi everyone ~ Been working this weekend. I've been covering for someone who is sick and not getting my own work done

Watched a bit of the Canucks game while hanging out with some girlfriends. Didn't think the Canucks looked very good.

When are you going to Alaska Deb?

Hi Deb ~ love having plans. We should meet for lunch at the fair? Apparently they are up 2 nothing right now but I'm not watching. No reader.

Work is crazy. I've been covering for someone for a week tomorrow and I'm getting so far behind.

Lots of snow today .... how about you?

In the Rotary parking? I don't drink coffee but I've been using coconut oil for other things .... tastes great but haven't noticed any weight loss. Thanks for the tip ... not sure when I'm getting to Kelowna to stop in at Costco.

Yes, I think we are thinking about the same area. But will confirm meeting place and time closer to September.

Awesome about going to your fave concert. I'm sure that I've mentioned this before but I'm not a big country fan. However, I love concerts.

Going to see Heart in Penticton in March. Best EVER was ACDC.

It is snowing right now.

Learn something new everyday. I've recovered from surgery and life is getting back to normal.

Yes, we have been seeing some sunshine as well but they are calling for snow tonight and rain tomorrow. Would rather have snow than rain.

Had some pollups taken out of my uterus due to the ongoing bleeding problems. He is hoping that this will help and avoid a hysterectomy.

Beautiful sunshine today in Vernon .... what is happening in Kamloops?

Happy Monday ~ Enjoying our BC Family Day holiday.

Yes, I've been thinking that I need to get some tanning minutes. Always makes me feel fabulous.
