I think i'm there. That utter breaking point I call exhaustion. I'm completely, phsyically, emotional, mentally exhausted. I don't have any gas in the tanks left this week. I've been going everyday from 3 in the morning till dinner time or later every night. I havant been sleeping well since the car was stolen and today is the third day of not really being able to eat all that much. I'm done for tonight. I'm letting the dog out for a bit then going to bed. Tommorow is a full day from 3am till bed. Something planned every minute of the day. :(

Signing off,

Bachlorette party

Well world anyone have a thinking cap on??

I've been invited to a bachlorette party but now the details have changed. Not only is the bride pregnant but so is the MOH. So they want to do a spa weekend. So the price of this weekend has shot right up. Like stupid right up. There is no way I can justify on spending 300 for a room for 2 nights and still sharing a bed with a bunch of girls. Then there is still gas, massages, pedis, manis, food and some other things to be factored in. All I can think is stay at my cottage we paint each others toes and save a wad of cash?

What would you do???

Stolen Car recovered.... details reveled.

Well world.

As my last post said yesterday my car was recovered by Peterborough city Police. Like maybe a week ago I got the bright idea that I would be able to find the car before the police. I drove around to every dirty town house low rental parking lot 24 hour gym. etc.

Well yesterday morning when I saw Private Number come up on the phone I knew my car had been recovered. I wont lie I was scared to hear what she has to say.

So my car was recovered up at highland heights public school. For anyone who knows Peterborough go left at the Tim Hortons on Chemong its up on the right. Well when I was driving around trying to find my car I was so close to finding it. I was litterly a head and flower bed on a little hill away from it. I was in 1 parking lot and it was in the one beside me that I didnt know was there. SO CLOSE! Basically you go back out onto the road drive down turn onto a cul du sac go the the end and there is a parking lot that connects next to the same parking lot. SO CLOSE.

Anyway the officer informed me on the phone that they were on the way out to take prints from my car and that I could go see it during the afternoon if nothing came off it..

I spent my day with dad not worrying about the car and not having any real idea what condition it was in. I called the Police and was told that nothing was a match off my car and I can go down and look it over. So I went down to the towing company to see my car. .............. I forgot how cute it was. Its a really cute car!!! But it was completely covered in finger print dust inside and out top to bottom including the engine. It looked grey compared to navy. But with the exception of a few dents and scrapes on the car it looks like it used to. The things in back seat were still there. The trunk still locked.

But no keys. Thats an 8 page story in itself.

The guy at Fitzsimmons said insurance should be putting in a new ignition system, new door locks. A safety on the car an engine flush and the car cleaned from top to bottom. Still dosant make me feel good about driving it. I dont think I would feel safe.

So thats all I know.
Anyway I have phsyio today so i'm off to that!! I'll catch you later!

So thats all I know readers.

More later.

Bristol Motor speedway!

Well this is the red neck part of my blog.

Last year in March Patrick and I with a few friends drove down to Bristol TN. For the March NASCAR Race! Let me tell you we had the best time ever! We pulled into farmer Bobs campground in full Canadian garb. A truck painted Bristol Bound covered in Canadian flags. We made a lot of friends immediately!

Let me tell you I was a true red neck for the weekend!Dressed in jeans ball cap my red and white and my awesome shirt with Canadian girls love 99 on the front and 69 on the back! Carrying my cooler stacked with dirt cheap beer and my scanner on my head listening to my driver on every turn and sprint fan vision around my neck it was AWESOME! We finished this weekend sunburnt as hell but froze at night as it dropped below freezing and we were camping in tents. But I love my Nascar!

The August night race is on this weekend and I am super pumped to be able to gather around the flatscreen to watch this race! Cheering cousin Carl on all the way to the end!!! Bristol is the fastest short track in the NASCAR circut!

Well world I wish I was going back i'd be leaving tommorow for the race this weekend but i'm staying at home in Canada!

Well Bristol my favorite American small town place! I'll miss you and your crazy walmart super store and ABC liqour store.

Cousin Carl drive that 99 and make me proud!!!

Canadian girls love 99 !!

Collecting my $

Well world. Its my day off and i'm planning on making a road trip out to the country!!!

I have a few things to do today aswell.

Money collection!
a) return a stack of emptys taking up tooo much space in out mudroom!its 4 24 cases.
b) Go back to the brick and get a refund for 80$ for my install that didnt happen with my furniture.
c) Call my RMT from my massage and get her to reissue my RMT receipt for my massage. my orginal receipt was in my car when it was stolen. 80$
d) Find a coin changer machine. Patricks and my loose change anything smaller then a 1$ gets thrown in a old dishwashing tabs container. Guessing 20$ its super heavy.

So i'm hopeing that i'll be able to come up with just under 200$ by the time I get my money back. Thanks world.

I plan on haveing lunch with my dad and maybe haveing an afternoon nap in that country air. Dinner is only going to be left overs from last night. I made a big casserole to get us through a few days.

So i've been doing phsyio for the past 6 weeks!!!

My range of motion is waaaaaay better. I can move and reach. Lifting is a huge problem still. My clinic has recently added another phsyiotherapist. I have never before had a male "doctor". But this is kinda different.

So I got switched over to him as my phsyiotherapist because of the way my hours at work are. I've never felt comfortable talking with a male about my body. But there was something about Sean that made me reconsider. He is SUPER professional. Usually with my shoulder there isnt much touch and feel its me doing exercises. Then him watching and coaching. He hasant had a chance to get digging around in there yet. Kim was doing that before. So today I got put on a brand new set of exercies. My body had NO idea what was going on. I couldant even explain it. It was like cutting up a whole chicken and popping the drumstick off. No other way to explain it.

So I know this sounds stupid. Really I know it does I got in the car and called myself an idiot.

I was terrified to have him touch me. For someone to give me a hug is fine. But to have a guy put both hands under my shoulder and feel all my muscles moving was another story for some reason. I dont know why. Nothing was wrong it was just something that never ever happens. He was totally calm and cool about it. Everytime I wasant able to describe soemthing he was able to figure it out by holding is hand against my shoulder and letting me do the exercise and could tell me what it was. All in all I can say it was pretty cool. I though I knew and understood my body pretty well but it turns out I had no idea. I never took bio beyond highschool so I have no real understanding of how the human body works.

Anyway, I know this is a huge note of no real point I just needed to get it out.

Anyway I decided I decided on the way home that I feel perfectly fine with Sean as my phsyiotherapist. He's seems to be very well educated and knows how to work on strengthing my shoulder!! One thing that I really like about him is when ever I dont understand how my body is working he gets out all the little models and shows me so I understand. Anyway science class is over as we say in phsyio.

My advice for the world: Know your body. Take time to figure things out!! Take care of your body!

My words of advice: The people who go through life thinking bad things wont happen to them are fools.

Happy Monday!

Well today was the start of another week! I was back to work early today and spent the afternoon about an hour at phsyio. Picked up some groceries and things at home depot and came home.

I was thinking while I was driving to phsyio today how lucky and truely blessed I am. The weather was awesome and it was so just sunny and bright! I was blessed with an amazing supportive family. An awesome boyfriend who truly means the world and is the reason the world turns for me. Patrick is truely the man God put on the earth for me! A career which I can grow into. Friends that I can truely count on & a dog I lovw every much!

I was thinking that Darius Rucker's song Alright was pretty fitting. I dont need the best things in the world i'm perfectly happy with what I have.

Alright, Alright
Yeah it's alright, alright

Don't need no five star reservations
I've got spaghetti and a cheap bottle of wine
Don't need no concert in the city
I've got a stereo and the best of Patsy Cline
Ain't got no caviar no Dom Perignon
But as far as I can see, I've got everything I want

Cause I've got a roof over my head,
the woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright
And I've got all I need
And it's alright by me

Maybe later on we'll walk down to the river
Lay on a blanket and stare up at the moon
It may not be no French Riviera
But it's all the same to me as long as im with you

It may be a simple life, but that's okay
If you ask me baby, I think I've got it made

Cause I've got a roof over my head,
the woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright
And I've got all I need
And it's alright by me

It's alright by me, yeah yeah
When I lay down at night I thank the Lord above
For giving me everything I ever could dream of

Cause I've got a roof over my head,
the woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright, alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright, alright
And I've got all I need, yeah
I've got all I need
And it's alright by me
Oh yeah, it's alright by me

So, Patricks working late tonight I plan on doing some major baking! Then having dinner ready for him when he gets home. I'd rather eat late with him then eat by myself!!! French style breaded pork tenderloin. PS. the secret is in the butter!! The more the better! Best dinner ever!

Friday the 13th!

Does anyone out there believe in Friday the 13th?

Today thruthfully wasnt a bad unlucky day for me today.

An end to a hetic week for sure. For once my weekend actually falls on a Saturday Sunday! I'm back to work for 2 days next week then off for another 2. Then into inventory! I'm actually excited for inventory this year. This year not only am I prepping steel again for inventory i'm actually doing the steel count with the managers... The only non manager doing steel count! YES. Way to be Katelyn... More tasks and duties = future promotion. = Future management salary = awesome.

My shoulder is doing better. I'm doing phsyio now 4x a week. Its a lot of long a$$ days but really worth it. I'm working back on the floor now but still not in the way I used to. My shift has changed and my duties but i'm back on the floor taking care of my dept. It looked so sad without me.

No word on my car yet folks. Monday marks 7 days after 14 days if it hasant been found i'll hear about what were going to do day 15. I drove around today for a couple of hours. I think I visited every low rental scummy apt ghetto type area of Peterborough. Never saw my car. So scum of Peterborough where is it? The police are driving down my street a lot more. They drove by in the middle of the night with the spot lights on... I wont lie it was scary as hell the light lit up the entire room.

Well its the start of the weekend. Patricks still working and working late. I have nothing planned for dinner yet. Pizza maybe or just soup dont know. Maybe i'll head over to the ex and check out the tractor pull ?? Dunno. Anyway thats it i'm excited for the weekend :)

Summer lovin, had me a blast!

Summer loving had me a blast! This summer has been one to remember for sure!!! So many experiences!!! Be prepared for this blog to be all over the place.

There is a few things I still have to tackle to make this summer feel complete. Which I am very excited about!!! So many things have happened its kinda crazy! I learned this summer how very much I appreciate my family and my awesome boyfriend. Patricks even taught me a lot about myself.

July has drawn to a close and August is into full swing. Bringing with it the quick end to the summer and some cooler nights. The Peterborough exhibition is on this coming weekend! I'm excited to have the ex just down the road from me! I'm sure tons of our friends and family will be stopping by as were soooo close. Maybe for some ribs and cold beers?

My aunt and father have gotten me into full swing with home canning this year. I've so far been able to tackle, strawberry, raspberry/blackberry and blue berry. Relish made with ginger thats super yummy!!! Plus I have some pickles on the go at dads. ** If anyone has old crocs with lids in tact.. i'm in the market.. ** I still have some canned peaches that i'm going to try and make peach jam out of them. I'm excited that my cold room downstairs is filling up! I hope my Grandmother is proud of me. I'll make it onto pies next summer I promise!

I've been blueberry picking with my aunt at the end of my vacation 3 hours in the sun left me waaay to burnt. But made for some awesome jam and even better conversation. Plus some wedding planning. She pulls off awesome country weddings.
No world I'm not engaged. But its been talked to in detail between Patrick and I. Were just waiting for all of the crazy wedding/ baby/ house stuff to settle down in our group of friends.

Patricks work is still in full swing with no sign of slowing down. 5-6AM starts and finishing up between 7-10PM makes for long days!!! Maybe our porch and fence will get done in the fall?? When he has more then a Sunday off!

My cousin is pregnant again! I've been wondering for the last month. I figured something was up! My dad plays with Rachelle and I can tell he wants to be a grandpa pretty bad!! But not for a few years!

My other cousin is getting married in September! I'm so excited for the wedding!! I ended up finding my dress while on vacation! Its very simple navy strapless with a sweetheart neckline! Falling just below the knee. I have a pair of red heels and red flower clip i'm excited to use to pin my hair up!! This will be my first Italion wedding! As the bride is italion! Wont lie, I'm excited for a 9 course meal, top shelf liquor and a lovely wedding and reception.

My car was stolen the other night. No sign at all of it. We've driven around to some pretty slummy houseing parking lots looking for it. But so far no sign. Scum of Peterborough you prevail. Its been 3 nights with little to no sleep so i'm hopeing tonight will be better! Wish me luck with insurance adjustors tommorow!

My shoulder is getting better and i'm excited to get back to work. I'm still on modified duties but at least i'm back on the merch floor. With a visit this week!! I just need to figure out how to get to phsyio this week in Lakefield without a car.... Hummm thinking caps on!

Our new furniture has arrived and looks AWESOME and is super comfy!! I was able to have a quick nap the other night on it!!

Anyway way to much has gone on for 1 post. So more to follow later on! I'm off to bed hopefully. I figured if I wrote out a long blog I would be able to get some of car stress off!!

Night world. Please let me get some sleep tonight!
