    J'Bo's Journey to Oz and Beyond






    Only 17 more days in Canada and then we are off to Perth, Australia.

    Saturday:

    Went to the gym and did the stairmaster, some plyometrics and leg weights. I just cant seem to get in the mood to lift anymore. Perhaps once I am living by the ocean and join a new gym I will get back into the groove.

    I bought my little brother his 6th birthday present today and told him that he better start practising his surfing moves for when he comes visit us.

    I found the largest piece of luggage I could find at the Bay today and it was 60% off and so I had to get it. I actually think that I could fit inside

    3 people came to see the condo today Tomorrow I find out if there are any offers and the bidding will start. I am crossing my fingers and hoping that I have a few offers and the place is sold next week so that I can start packing up my stuff and ship the things I want to Aussie this week.

    Well tonight my love is working so I am off to go veg out in front of the TV on my exercise ball

    Tomorrow is my cutey brothers bday so I have to rest up.

    Sunday:

    I woke up and did more moving prep work then tried to relax and make more lists of things to do It never ends

    Then I rode my bike to my fathers (55 min of fast riding) with my 500lb laptop on my back. It was chilly (yes i am whining). I blew up some balloons and decorated the house before the little one got home from his friend Bday party. He was so excited when he got home. He got so many presents he did not know what to play with first. Aaron and I played with his new nerf foam dart gun for about 3 hours. I think i want one now

    We ate dinner and then an offer to purchase my condo (after being on the market for only 4 days) came in. The offer was above my asking price and so ITS SOLD

    Well i am off to relax and make more lists. Tomorrow will be only 15 more days.

    Yes, leaving the family especially my brother will be REALLY hard. The family is already planning a vacation to Oz
    I will not say the dinkum phrase until i know what it means though

    You Aussies are going to bug me about my "accent" all the time arent you? and my Roots bag? you going to bug me about that too?

    I haven't kept up and don't know why you are moving, but it is a BIG step and I hope everything works out for you! Good luck.
    At least there is no water between us right now! I'm sad.

    Hardy har har...bug the immigrant
    Yes I have a roots bag and i know i will get some slack for it


    Jenny: Yes, WE are doing it A and I are leaving at the end of this month. Do you really have to even ask about visiting? OF COURSE SILLY! Visit anytime.

    DG: dont worry about not keeping up, i can barely keep up with this rollercoaster of a life i lead I got a job in Oz and now i can be a bikini bum for 12 months out of the year. Some Aussies think its "winter" there right now but 20degrees is balmy to a winterpeger

    NT: i will always wear the red and white proud but who could pass up surfing and sand between the toes I will stay in touch and will be coming back to Canada to visit!

    El Capitan: Yes they have been known to crush a few

    J, I think "fair dinkum" is like Hawaii's "Da Kine" having several uses.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    B: i know what a shizzle is, i was just laughing because Rissy doesnt


    Tuesday:
    Well this was a take it easy day.
    -Went to massage apointment
    -Dropped off status papers
    -Dropped off health papers
    -Went to grandmas to do yard work for her because she got into a car accident and cant do it herself

    Well i got a little sun burnt from doing yard work...i hate tan lines

    -Went to costco to pick up pics
    -Went to pick up party prizes from my nutrition store
    The guy was soooooo generous and donated over $400 worth of stuff for us to raffle off at our going away party. You all might be thinking "what the hell is a going away party doing with raffles and stuff"...well its a Manitoba thing. They are called socials and people usually have them before they get married to raise money for their wedding. We rented out a restaurant and we are having everyone we know (300 people) come and there is silent auction prizes that people pay money to try to win. We are having it as a "moving away social" If you dont live in Manitoba you wouldnt understand. We do everything we can to raise money here

    -picked up Red Lobster prize
    -went to Aarons to watch a stupid scary movie that kept me up all night I HATE SCARY MOVIES
