Cottage Life

We went to the cottage about a week ago. It was fun. The kids had a blast!! They tend to make the most out of most situations. Love them for that.

The only crappy thing I had to say about the experience, is the amount of spiders that were there. But I hate nature. Everyone who knows me, know this.

But here are some pics for your viewing pleasure:

This is the view from the kitchen window of the deck. All you can really see are the trees. If you look close enough, you might even be able to see some spiders. Not even kidding. They're there.

This is a pic of the bbq after John cleaned it up. I can't post a pic of the before because that pic would make you gag. No, really, it would.

This pic is pretty self explanatory. It's yum yums.

This is a pic of the stairs beside the pool house going towards to water/deck. If you look closely, you can even see spiders in this pic. Honestly, my skin crawls looking at this specific pic.

And finally, this is a pic of the kiddies and Meli frolicking in the water. This was pretty much a constant for them. They were always there.

Pics courtesy of John's phone. Haven't uploaded the pics from the camera yet.

My health plan

This year (after a haitus last year) I will be playing mas again this year at Caribana (or whatever it's called).

This is my costume (the teal coloured one):

So in dire hopes of fitting into it (I really wish you could try on the costume before purchasing it) I will be doing a strict health regiment. Well, strict for me. Probably pretty lax for everyone who's even remotely healthy.

I will attempt to keep a journal or log of some sorts to help out with this. Effective today.

*Wish me luck*

Bucket List

So I've come out of retirement. Just for a bit. Not sure how long this is going to last, but I had to share the two places I want to add to my bucket list. Since I don't have anything on it yet, I will list these as #1 & #2, however, that is not necessarily the order of importance in which they stand in my life.


Yes, that is a waterslide, and yes that is a pool filled with sharks!
The Leap of Faith @ Atlantis: The Palm in Dubai
27.5m tall and 61m long, from the top of the Ziggurat the Leap of Faith catapults riders into a transparent tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon, where guitar sharks, bow mouth sharks, white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks all reside.

#2) AquaDuck on Disney Cruise Lines
AquaDuck is a thrilling "water coaster," whose entrance is on Deck 12, Aft aboard the Disney Dream. In a cruise industry first, Guests are propelled at high speeds from Deck 12, Aft through an acrylic tube on a breathtaking journey up, down, around and off the side of the ship, through the Forward Funnel and—following a mammoth drop—into a lazy river.
Developed by Disney Imagineers, this elevated water coaster—the first of its kind at sea—travels 765 feet and features exciting twists, turns and plunges. It was designed for adults and children at least 42" or taller. Single riders must be at least 54" or taller. Children under 7 may ride with someone 14 years of age or older, provided the child is at least 42" tall.
AquaDuck affords breathtaking views of the ocean and ship below—that is, if you're brave enough to keep your eyes open during this exciting ride! It also offers a bird's-eye view of the exciting new pools available to family, kids and adults on the Disney Dream.

ok, tata for now.

Day 01 – Introduce yourself

At this point if you don't know my name, consider yourself an idiot, because all you have to do is look at the address bar.......idiot.
In case you're still dense, it's Lisa.
I'm a twenty something single mother to my eight year old daughter. She is my life. I'm a daughter to my parents, and sister to Meli. Sister-in-law to an ass bird, John. Aunty to Marky and Mason.
My family means the world to me, don't mess with them. My friends are my friends for a reason and I only roll with those who I know are going to be there for me, even when i'm a bitch (which is quite often). They can expect nothing but the same in return.
I'm bitter and angry, and some might even call me jaded. But I think those labels come in handy when need be. I think I am also loyal and honest and a realist.

But we still have 29 more days left of reading, so don't judge this book by my introduction only.

iPhone vs. BB

Ok, so Meli got a new BB the other day, not the torch but the curve, and I started playing with it. I got to say, it was quite fun. I especially liked that whole bb messenger option. Before I thought it was just like texting, and I was like, what's so great about that, but alas, I think that is great! Especially the smiley's.
The keys are alittle smaller than I like and it was difficult to type, but so was the iPhone at the beginning.
On the other hand, the iPhone is a computer, ipod and phone combined into one! Honestly it gets no better than that for functionality. The camera could be better though.
I love the apps because Babygirl can play with it to kill some time too. It has youtube, which again, kills time for Babygirl.
Plus, I don't really text that much anyways. But I think if I had a bb, Iwould ping everybody I know, just because I could, haha.
I love that option.
Maybe I will try to ping on text messages and see if it's the same affect, haha.

Anyways, I guess I will just stick to my iPhone for now.....holding out for the iPhone 4 once I get some extra flow and it becomes available. But I definitely will be pinging everyone with Meli's phone, so look out now.

You know what sucks??

Having to consol your dad when he tells you he's scared and starts to cry.

That sucks.
