Tag Archives: father’s day


18 Jun

It’s T-1 day to Centre Island, and Mother Nature has, once again, blessed me with her monthly gift, and it’s supposed to be thunder storming this weekend. Fantastic, I couldn’t have asked for a better combination. [I know, I’m such an annoying whiner when I’m on my cycle..]

My laryngitis has only made minimal improvements over the week, but my coughing as gotten a lot better. The Calmylin that my Facebook pharmacist recommended has worked pretty well (it also makes me pass out within an hour of taking it) to mitigate my cough attacks, but the antibiotics are doing absolute shit for me. Granted, I did miss two doses due to my own carelessness, so I have no one to blame but myself.

In light of all that, I am quite excited about the upcoming weekend. I’m going to see a magic show!! I’m seeing Masters of Magic, one of the Luminato events tonight. Knowing how easily impressed I am with magic, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. 😀

Plus, of course, I have the dragonboat races at Centre Island this weekend. I encourage you to come watch us race on Sunday! The festival itself is tons of fun for spectators, and of course, my team and I would enjoy the support. 🙂

Then, there’s also Father’s Day. I feel so bad. This year, I put in even less effort for Father’s Day than last year. Both years, it conflicted with the dragonboat races, so I never really had time to do anything with my dad, so I just end up buying him a present and making dinner for him. =\

It’s disappointing because I think my dad is secretly very sentimental about these things; sometimes I stumble across cards and presents that I’ve gotten him from previous years, and pictures of us tucked away in various crevices in his study room. Whereas my mom, on the other hand, uses the cards that I get her for scrap paper and I would find it in the recycling a week later… lol.

Either way, another promising weekend up ahead! Have a good one! 🙂
