Happy Monday, all. This week’s Monday weigh in is….odd. The scale has not moved up or down. I stepped on it this morning and I’m still 182.8. Well, at least I haven’t gained.
Quick update on life out here – my aquafit classes are finished and was bummed to hear that the aquadome will be closed until September for renovations. Is nothing sacred?
Segway (or is it segue?), If you know anything about Montreal, you know that Summer out here is what we call the Construction Festival.
Our moron of a mayor has taken it upon himself to ok the tearing up of just about every inch of the Decarie expressway and borough streets this side of the island. I’ve never been to Iraq but can show you pics that would make you believe I’m living in a war torn middle eastern country.
Traffic has been horrendous, parking non existent in some areas and blue collar workers are being pushed to their limits with respect to hours and wages. So, naturally, they strike. It cost our fair city $45 million per day for a seven day strike last week before a back to work legislation was passed.
Here’s what the handy work of pissed off construction workers looks like. Yes, they actually paved AROUND a car. Oh and don’t all those orange cones just blend so well into the scenery? They are EVERYWHERE folks. It’s a freaking nightmare.
Anyhoooo….a lot has happened out here. My family life is on the rocks once more. Last week was brutal emotionally and was feeling depressed over it. I barely had any energy and stayed away from blogging. Shame on me. More info to follow on that. Must start the day.
Happy Monday all!
