A Day Off

Oh, I have today off. This is wonderful! I can putz around and do nothing. I sooo need this. (Although I should just VPN into the office for just a smidgen.)

So what's going on in said life...

Had a great evening last night at the 1640 Hart House. I've written about it before. I love the food and the ambiance. It was an exquisite evening. The last time I was there was for my birthday.

Today I have got to call the my real estate broker and line up a bunch of houses to see tomorrow. I'm continuing the hunt despite the last fiasco. Speaking of the last house, I should hear more next week in terms of what the bank (the seller) is willing to do. The more I think about it I may just spend a bit more and get a house that needs little to no work. Besides I'm not the handiest of men.

Yesterday Bandit got his haircut . He looks adorable. Though when I went to pick him up the groomer said, "I hope you're not offend by this but he is getting a little chunky." Oy! I know...I know. He's got to go on a diet. I'm going to start bringing him to the gym with me and throw him on the treadmill.

At the office, I joined a fitness class. For $85 you get a 6 week course with personal trainer to whip your ass into shape. When it comes to working out I need to be pushed. I've gotten more out of these last few weeks than I ever would on my own. I'm just not self- motivated when it comes to the gym. On my own I more like, "Okay, that's enough. I'll move on to something easier." But when you've got someone demanding you go into 30 seconds of diamond push-ups when you've just did a set of painful squats, you just do it.

Well, that's about it.


P.S. Bandit says hello. He's outside enjoying the fresh air.

I've got the 15 and the 18th off. Not sure what, I'm going to do just yet. I have no idea what it's like to have to lose weight. I wish Bandit all the best as you try to help him lose some pounds.
