Pickles the Fat Hobbit

I noticed on my friend Patricia's blog, that she has me on her "Blogs you should read" list and she labeled me "Pickles the Fat Hobbit". It got me thinking. Pickles the Fat Hobbit was born from one Canadian Thanksgiving dinner . I was having Thanksgiving Dinner in my place for the first time. I invited my friends Rob and Patricia since they were from the States and I wanted them to be part of it. Well, as we are sitting around the table, my father who is very proud of me and loves to brag about me (yes, I am Daddy's little girl. I am an only child so I am allowed) told my friends that when I was young my nickname was Pickles, because I love pickles. They both laughed. Then after a delicious Thanksgiving meal, I pronouced that I was so stuffed I was like "A Fat Hobbit" an term I got from my friend Heather. Well, ha haa it stuck, from then on Rob and Patricia called me Pickles the Fat Hobbit. Rob really encouraged me to name my blog that but I just couldn't do it, so as my first post I labeled it "Death to Pickles the Fat Hobbit" it was a great first post.

As I host Easter dinner in my very own Condo, I can't help but remember how much fun that Thanksgiving was and how Pickles the Fat Hobbit was created.

P.S. I am not fat, so don't worry I have a healthy respect for my body and I am not trying to put myself down.

Walking to Work

One of the benefits to living literally on the same street as where I work is that I can walk to work. For a long time people have been bothering me to walk to work, I always made some excuse. Either it was too dark out (I have to say this is a valid excuse), I wouldn't be able to sleep in (hmm sleep), or if I had to do some random errand to run I wouldn't have my car. Well, it's spring time here and I though to myself, enough is enough get your butt out of bed and walk to work. I am proud to say that I was able to walk to work two days this week (the rest of the days, it was raining-yes another excuse) I love it! It only takes 12 minutes to walk so that means I don't have to get up any earlier than usual. It's excerise for the days I don't go to the gym (I would never replace walking for my workout). I bring my work close to change at work because I refuse to be one of those ladies wearing running shoes with their nylons and skirts. Yikes!

Blizard Beach

My grandma gave me a gift with one stipulation and that was I have to take a vacation with this gift and it has to be somewhere far away. So I booked my flight today and I am going to go see my good friends Rob and Patricia ( I didn't tell them this) but I want to go to DisneyWorld one day to the blizard beach park. It's like the artic but at a water park. Good park to go to for this Canadian girl eh?

New Vet

We took Molson to a new vet, because we wanted a second opinion because according to the vet that diagnosed Molson he should have passed away by now. Well, the second vet said that Molson was a healthy dog, he still has cancer but he doesn't think he was as sick as the first doctor thought. Molson's lymph nodes aren't swollen or enlarged and he doesn't have cancer in his mouth so he said that we will have Molson around for a least another 1 year or two. Wahoooo!
