I guess the good news is, after my foot ultrasound, it's nothing out of the ordinary. Plantar fibroma surgery in December, should be fun. I was lucky, on the list of 150, I'm 140. Someone needing the same surgery cancelled so they called me. Otherwise, I might have had to wait another year or TWO!! I guess that means I'm lucky?? :)

The Calgary Zoo, one of my favorite places in this city, has been running a pretty cool ad campaign this year. This happens to be my favorite :) I bet 1.4 seconds after they took this picture, that airedale ripped that bra to shreds. Or more realistically, they photoshopped that bra on the dog, or the dog on the bra hahaha.
See why this can't possibly be a real photo...

Last weekend we went camping with a group of friends and tried our hand at white water rafting. I tripped on the rocks and scraped my knee, Andrew fell out of the raft and had to be towed back in. We survived anyway and there is already talk of going again next summer. It was such a great weekend! Today was my last day of work, I start my new job on Monday and I'm going to enjoy the hell out of the weekend before I start!

And thanks for the long weekend, we managed to get a lot accomplished! Friday we visted with friends down on 4th street, our old neighbourhood. Didn't manage to say hi to "Creepy Jesus" at the nunnery down the road, but still had a good time. Saturday we spent with my Pop, he bought my birthday present, a nice umbrella for the patio set, so we don't sweat bullets outside. Then we stopped at M&M and bought an Atkins Diet delight dinner hehehe...sirloin, shrimp, kab0bs... we ate like kings! Sunday was spent fixing up the back yard. We finally have a decent pathway from the gate, no skipping along like a freak to get to the patio. It will be a lot easier to shovel a path come snow time as well. Today we were going to take a day trip to the mountains, but there were weather warnings, so instead, on Pop's suggestion, we went shopping. Andrew was the only one who benefitted from that trip - he ended up with a new shirt, shorts, shoes, and sandals. Lewis has been on a shoe-eating binge this weekend, much to our dissapointment and horror. Speaking of Lewis, his breeder brings news of a litter, nine new tiny airedales... new brothers and sisters for Lewis. Too bad that now we've put off getting his hair cut and they won't let anyone in the house until the puppies are 6 weeks old :( That's all for now folks!
(maybe I'll take some pictures in daylight next time)

Dropped Lewis off at the vet on Friday... he's a pretty good dog but he just needed some "alterations". Trevor, Chris and Darryl came to town on Friday and the boys all went to a hockey game. Saturday morning we went to the vet and were told that Lewis had been licking his stitches and they had to put a cone on him. He's supposed to wear it for 10 to 14 days... I give that thing about 3 days tops. Here are some pictures of Lewis...and Trevor :)

It's hard to pet a dog with a plastic satellite dish on his head...

I like the look on Trevor's face in this picture...it sums up how we both felt about Andrew's face :)

It is chilly today! I made Andrew and myself 'lattes' this morning with some international delight creamer and cool whip... they were delicious! Last night Sandy and I went to a few pet stores so I bought our spoiled dog a tennis ball. He's never had one before and this particular one has a squeaker in it. We all know what happened to that. He squeezed it so hard that it no longer squeaks. Reason #498 the guinea pigs are never going head to head with Lewis!
Here's the yummy coffee:

Andrew and I celebrated five whole years together on Sunday... he shooed me out of the kitchen and I wasn't allowed back in until he said so. This is what was waiting for me!!!

We enjoyed filet mignon, lobster tails, garlic bread, potatoes, swiss chard, and a wee bit of Merlot... looked great, smelled great, tasted fabulous!
