I know I haven't talked about these in a while, so I thought I would. I've been using cloth menstrual pads for about 3.5 years now and I totally love them! I originally switched for environmental and comfort reasons, and I've stuck with them for the same. They are so much more comfortable than disposables and it feels really good to not be throwing my pads out too! I just found this video, and thought I'd share it with you guys. I'm fully open to answering any questions you might have too, ask away!

Back from the dentist and he was cool with not freezing me first. I really had to convince him I'd be okay, and would let him know if I wasn't...but I was and it went fine. Now if I could only get the taste out of my mouth...yuck!

Someone just sent me some very lovely tulips!! Check 'em out. They were sent anonymously, so thank you to whoever sent them. You brightened up my day! :)

The rest of our weekend at Deerhurst was a blast! We went snow tubing in the afternoon and had so much fun, I'm glad we went. We were tempted to just stay in our room and watch the olympics, but we made ourselves go out in the end. Then we got to the hill and it looked so steep and icy that we almost chickened out. A nice lady told me it was fun and not as bad as it looked. So I went, and I loved it and went down 3 more times the last on a double tube with Dan. The haul back up the hill was brutal, but the ride down made it worth it!

On to the pictures )

Wow...that is an absolute MOB of Canadian olympic athletes!!!

Edit: Seriously Nellie Furtado? That is the most appropriate dress/shoe combination you could come up with? Hmm...

I went to The Brick at lunch today and paid off our TV. The gift certificates from GE covered $600 of it, Dan's grandma gave us $200 for Christmas so I dug 12c out of my wallet. I'd say the TV was well worth 12c! :D
mrs_ladybird: (Birthday - Make A Wish)
Happy Birthday Julie!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful, caring and best friend [livejournal.com profile] bellajellybean!! I hope you have a fantastic day today and are looking forward to your celebration with me on Saturday! (I know I am!) :D

Here's Dan & I before the Christmas party on Friday night. Julie took our picture once we were all ready to head out. We kept with the tradition of getting ready at her house, since the party is always on a Friday night. Expect to see repeat outfits in a couple of weeks for my company Christmas party too!

Any of you guys use feeds successfully/regularly on your LJs? Anyone want to help me figure out how to add some to mine?
Thanks!!

1. FIRST NAME: Tracey
2. AGE: 29
3. LOCATION: Bailieboro, Ontario, Canada
4. OCCUPATION: Office Administrator. I work in the service department at a company that makes big steel drilling machines. We install these machines all over the world, and they call in here when they have issues. I give the call to the appropriate tech to troubleshoot and failing that I make travel arrangements to send a tech to site. I also am the receptionist here, and do all kinds of filing/reports and other basic office type stuff.
5. PARTNER: Dan. We've been together almost 13 years and married very nearly 6. He's an Engineer at GE Canada. He's currently working on a prototype for a wind turbine.
6 KIDS: Not yet...working on that though. Hopefully 2-3 though and close together in age as well. I'd settle just for one to start though, I never though that would be this difficult!!
7. SIBLINGS: I have one brother named Jody. He's 18 months younger than me and lives in Ottawa, which is about a 3 hour drive from here. Is about to become a dad any day now. I also had a half brother Scott who I met for the first time when I was about 20. He was my dad's from a previous marriage that I also had no idea existed. I knew Scott for about 2 years before he died from brain cancer.
8. PETS: 2 cats. Nano & Pico. They are almost 6 years old and are sisters from the same litter. They are farm cats from Dan's parents house.
9. WHERE AND FOR WHAT DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL?: This gets kind of complicated. I went to Nipissing University in North Bay for 2 years in the teaching program. Decided that wasn't for me, and moved closer to home and attended Durham College for Office Administration. Much better fit although I am technically still one credit short of actually having that diploma. I've also done some night school courses in various Microsoft Office programs. I hope to some day actually have a piece of paper that says I've graduated from something other than high school. I will likely finish something off while I'm home raising kids.
10. PARENTS: My Mom and Dad are Jane & Gary. They've been married for 33 years I believe. They retired and moved back to my mom's hometown of North Bay just over 6 years ago. They are planning to move closer to me (North Bay is about 4 hours away) once my grandparents both pass on and no longer need my parents in North Bay. Probably a few years down the road still.
11. HOBBIES: I enjoy knitting (although am currently on a break from it because it was causing problems in my wrist), cross stitching, cooking, reading, being online and watching movies.

Hmm...

Combining "no problem" with "you're welcome" on the phone comes out "your problem". Note to self...choose one of the two in future!

♥ What are your middle names?
Dawn & Owen

♥ How long have you been together?
13 years this December

♥ How long did you know each other before you started dating?
4 years

♥ Who asked who out?
I asked him out. It was to a high school semi-formal. I was pretty sure he was going to ask me (all our friends had just told him I liked him) but I'd been out for a bit because I'd had surgery, so I thought he might not ask because I might not be up to going. I'm glad I asked him when I did too, because another girl asked him out the next day and he tells me he would have said yes to her too!

♥ How old are each of you?
We're both 29, we'll both be 30 this fall.

♥ Did you go to the same school?
Yes, from grade 7 up.

♥ Who is the smartest?
Dan's more book smart, I'm more intuitively smart.

♥ Who is the most sensitive?
Definitely me

♥ Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We hardly ever eat out...um...the most would probably be East Side Mario's, because I keep winning gift certificates for there!

♥ Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
I had to look at a map to see which place is actually furthest from here: Rome

♥ Who has the craziest exes?
I guess I do, I have one and he has none. Mine wasn't really crazy though...

♥ Who does the cooking?
I do

♥ Who is more social?
I am.

♥ Who is the neat-freak?
Him

♥ Who is the most stubborn?
He is

♥ Who hogs the bed?
Me

♥ Who wakes up earlier?
He does.

♥ Where was your first date?
The high school semi-formal

♥ Who has the bigger family?
He has a bigger immediate family, he's the oldest of 5 kids.

♥ How do you spend the holidays?
The holiday day itself is spent with my family and we usually see his at some point around the general area of the holiday. They never celebrate on the actual day themselves, so that makes it easy.

♥ How long did it take to get serious?
A while actually. The dance was in December and we hung out more as friends at school but he didn't ask me out again until April when he finally got his driver's licence. We were inseparable after that!

♥ Who does/did the laundry?
Me mostly.

♥ Who’s better with the computer?
He is.

♥ Who drives when you are together?
I mostly do.

I had a fantastic sleep last night and got up this morning ready to hit the cobblestones. Dan headed out early to the last day of his conference and I got ready here then headed out myself. I went back to the pub-y place again for breakfast because we'd seen signs last night that they had cheap traditional English breakfast. So I got that and it was quite nice. Sausage, rashers of bacon (which is kind of a cross between Canadian bacon and bacon), a fried portobello & half tomato, hash browns, an egg, tea & toast for about £4. It was yummy!! It was funny when I was in there though, about half the people were there having breakfast, the others were having pints!

Then I walked around for a bit, there are canals everywhere with those long boats in them, so I took a bunch of pictures and talked to some people. Everyone seems really friendly here so far. I've heard London people aren't the friendliest, but they sure are here anyway! I talked to a man at the pub last night about whether or not to leave a tip, and he was helpful (no tip since there are no servers - you just order and pay for food at the bar). Also, I took a picture of one of the boats going down the canal and the driver turned around and waved, said I should have told him to smile for the picture! Then I was standing in front of our hotel taking some pictures then trying to decide what to do next and the guy directing traffic came and ask if I was lost and needed directions. I told him I was just looking around and then I got kind of embarrassed and left. I also went and bought some postcards and stamps, and when the guy asked where the post cards were going he assumed America. Everyone seems to so far be assuming I'm American. The cabbie yesterday told me I had a "Broad American Accent". I don't think he believed me when I told him Canada. I think a lot of Americans try to pose as Canadians in Europe...

I came back to the hotel then because I was feeling tired and just kind of bad. Slept for another 2 hours or so and am feeling better now. It probably helps that it's like 9;30am on my body's time now not the 2:30am it was when I woke up at 7:30! :P So I guess I am kind of feeling jet lagged this time! Oh well, hopefully I get over it soon!

Dan just got back to the hotel, he's all done with his conference now and we're going to do up our trip budget and what we want to do this afternoon and the rest of the days (roughly) so we know how much we have to spend on stuff. I think we're also going to go and find a grocery store to get yogurt and stuff for breakfast tomorrow. There's a fridge in the room here we can use. I'm just catching up a bit online again right now. Dan is checking his work email and catching up a bit there before we can head out. He still technically is on business here. :P

We were thinking about going to the National Sea Life Birmingham but it is lined up to the road with kids. This week is a school holiday. Plus, it would be £17 to get in which is doubled to get Canadian. It's crazy, everything here seems to be about the same price as Canada, except that pounds are much higher than dollars!! Tomorrow I think we're going to head to Warwick Castle. We'd have to buy our tickets online today though, since they are getting really sold out (School holiday again) and they're much cheaper online!

I should have some pictures to upload this evening! :)
