What Maur and I ate at The Cheesecake Factory:
FACTORY APPETIZER FAVORITES
Serves Four or More! A Combination of Our Favorite Appetizers including: Avocado Eggrolls, Spinach and Cheese Dip, Pot Stickers, Summer Rolls, Quesadilla, Corn Cakes, Buffalo Blasts and Calamari
The cheesecake I picked up before going home - Snickers Bar Chunks and Cheesecake
After Buffalo, Mike and I went to spend the night at Hakkim Hotel - drank wine, played Rockband, found chocolates on our pillows, ate an awesome breakfast, looked at the Louzado-D'Souza wedding photos, and got an awesome spanish guitar CD. I love staying at Hakkim Hotel (I wonder if I can become a VIP).
Next on Sunday was stopping by the Ponce Household to visit the newly born R.J. (Rayden Jestice). He is adorable and has the cutest screeching scream. Rylen is in love with his new baby brother and is finally paying attention to Mike and I again. Since his birthday he has been ignoring us.
(Please pardon the picture, it was taken with a camera phone)
We then stopped by to pass our respect to the Lopez family. Ed's father passes away suddenly on Friday.
The last stop for our weekend was dinner at Canyon Creek for some Prime Rib and Lamb Chops. I was feeling dizzy all weekend so I thought some red meat might do the trick. No such luck, still feeling dizzy and lightheaded. So after this whirlwind weekend from Buffalo to Ajax, I plan to sit on the couch all night tonight and watch Jon & Kate plus 8 and Making the Band 4. What a weekend but well worth it =)

Damaged Danity Kane - Last year I heard of this girl group formed by Diddy but didn't really care to see what their song sounded like. But because of Making the Band 4, I had to check out their new single and it's a really catchy pop song.
Got Me Going Day 26 - Since I am addicted to Making the Band and because Will is hot, it only makes sense for me to me listening to this song all the time, now if only Donnie came out with a single.
Soulmate Nastasha Bedingfield - This song played on The Hills a while back, and like Mike & Gino always say to me, you only like songs that play on your favorite TV shows.
Kindly Unspoken Kate Voegele - And again, song played on One Tree Hill. There is something about hearing a song for the first time and it being associated with a situation in a certain episode that makes me enjoy the song more. Now if I only had my own soundtrack to my life...
Heaven on Earth Britney Spears - Mike introduced me to this song and it's a catchy dance tune by the Pop Diva. Her album is quite alright...I just wish she was sane enough to promote it.

An old friend from Whitehorse, J.R., found my brother on facebook. G sent me J.R.'s email and we just reconnect via email this weekend. It's so strange that she found G. Anyway, even though it was facebook that connected them, I am glad that it happened. See, I don't need to be on facebook to reconnect with old friends. G can just do it for me!

I truly believe though that after the bday party and with the next snow storm coming in on Sunday, the rest of the weekend will allow me to relax. I plan to sleep, finish up Julie's scarf, do some filing, paint my nails, sort through my magazines and catch up on some movies that Mike got.
After the Family Day weekend, my week will be busy. I have a program full day program on Tuesday and then an eye appointment after (I am nervous about this appointment because they will be putting in the eye drops in my eyes that apparently make you kinda loopy according to Mike). Wednesday, I am going to the Bata Shoe Museum with my boss to a Women's Networking and Fashion Show event put on by WeirFoulds LLP and Holt Renfrew (I will get to see my dear friend, SAD). Thursday, I am going for dinner with an old friend from Humber College who I recently re-connected with (without the help of Facebook!!!). Edilka was a good friend of my back in the day, we were both in the Business Administration program and hung out a lot on the weekends too. When we were exchanging emails, she mentioned that she had a boy back in Nov 2006, so I get to meet him when we meet! I am so excited. So, it will be a busy week for me...

Now, here is a man who is doing what he can to support his family and here I am complaining about working a 14-hour day which I only have to do once a year. I realized how selfish I am being and how at this moment, my life is pretty easy and I should stop complaining. So from now on, when I think my life is tough, I have to remember that there is someone out there that has it tougher than me or maybe even worse than me. I should be thankful for what I have instead of complaining, and maybe enjoy the fact that I have a job where most of the time, I only have to work 7 hours a day.
