Whine/Anti Whine

Friday, December 18, 2009

[Inspired by a post at Magpie Musing – great idea, just what I needed.]

Since my, um, rant last week, I haven’t felt like I’ve had the time to come on here and blog.

Have had a sort of refreshing week of not being online very much and also beginning to stop listening to some of those messages that make me question myself even more than I already do on my own.

We had Christmas with my parents last weekend. My house is now overstocked with new toys & books; the boys are fighting over them; some are already broken.

My family was, as usual, incredibly generous with their gift giving. And I am so happy to not still be shopping for major gifts!

We are 6 days away from a 7 hour plane journey plus airport time with my two little kids – one of my own personal hells.

We are so lucky to be able to spend the holidays in England.

My parents and grandparents are flying to Barbados tomorrow to bask in the warm sun, swim in the ocean and eat all the flying fish that I should be eating.

We are going to England.  We are going to see people we love and places we adore full of history and have adventures of who knows what kind yet.

My desire to enter the Toronto real estate market will potentially lead to divorce and/or my own mental health hospitalization.

We are so lucky to be able to consider entering the Toronto real estate market. Lucky in general to have a solid roof over our heads.

Work is rather boring right now – the holidays grind everything to a standstill and being bored at work makes me CRAZY.

I have a job. A good job.

I can’t get the damn wireless router we got at home to work no matter how hard I try. And my Blackberry Messenger on my phone is completely borked.

I just got an iPod touch and a Bose sound dock for my big Christmas gift. They are beautiful and awesome.

I swear to god, I could keep writing this for days. Maybe I should do this once a week!  Keep my whining in balance, eh?

    Oooh. Move to Toronto, do it! Where are you thinking? We’re also thinking of “entering the Toronto Real Estate Market” in the next couple months. Of course, we already live here, but we’re renting. As soon as we get our financing worked out, I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for a dilapidated Junction-ish shack to call my own.

      Don’t tell me you’re looking for a house in the Junction too. Because the way the market is, I’ll have to beat you up for it!! We’re totally looking west-end – Junction, Bloor West Village, Parkdale. I am feeling less and less optimistic, though…

    You really could be a Willer. I have heard about your blog from my kids Stev and Cristen and their descriptions did not full prepare me for your sense of humour. We will have to meet one day. You really are part of the family.

    • EWiller Says:

      Mr Willer, that is a great compliment! I am honored. Your kids and I found each other accidentally and it’s been neat getting to know them. Even if the Willer isn’t even really my name, I’ll take it!! Thank you. 🙂
